Application: Accumulation methods for system information (SI) windows and apparatus thereof (Patent ID: US20230413164A1)

The patent filed by MediaTek Inc. describes an accumulation method for system information (SI) windows, involving steps such as receiving an indication from a network node, determining a set of SI windows in a modification period, and performing an accumulation over the SI windows in the set. The method includes variations based on the number of bits in the indication, default values for different communication types, mapping rules, and start positions within the modification period.

Additionally, the patent includes claims for an apparatus implementing the accumulation method, with a transceiver receiving indications from a network node and a processor determining and accumulating over the SI windows. The apparatus is designed to handle different scenarios based on the indication received, such as determining the number of SI windows for specific communication types, utilizing mapping rules, and adjusting start positions within the modification period. The apparatus can receive indications through various channels like SIB1, RRC signaling, or paging, and perform accumulation operations accordingly.
