On August 29, Huawei's Mate60 Pro series went on sale ahead of schedule, which was unexpected.According to information released by Huawei, the Mate60 Pro is the world's first mass smartphone to support satellite calls.
At present, a number of satellite communication-related patents applied by Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. have been authorized.
According to the App, Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd. has applied for dozens of satellite communication-related patents, and a number of patents have been published since this year alone.
Among them, the patent of "Satellite communication method and device" published on June 23 can effectively improve the communication mechanism of jumping beam in satellite communication; The patent for "methods and devices for satellite communication", published on May 5, helps to provide a wider range of communication services and reduce the complexity of terminal equipment; The patent for "Satellite communication Method and Device," published on March 31, could better integrate Internet of Things networks and satellite communications.
Here are the details of the patents:
The application discloses a satellite communication method and device, which comprises: opening a first timer; The configuration information from the network device carries the information of the preconfigured uplink resource PUR, and the duration of the second timer is carried in the information of the PUR. The effective time of the second timer is within the effective duration of the first timer. Upstream data is sent through the PUR before the first timer times out and the second timer times out. The method provided in this application can better integrate internet of things (loT) networks and satellite communications.
The present application provides a satellite communication method and apparatus, including: the terminal equipment receives the first information, the first information is used to determine the first duration, the first duration is used to indicate the duration of the first beam out of service to the second beam to provide service, the first beam and the second beam are the satellite's beams; The terminal device uses a second beam to communicate with the network device according to the first time length. According to the technical scheme of this application, by sending the first information to the terminal device, the terminal device can determine the time between the first beam stopping service and the second beam providing service according to the first information, and the second beam of the satellite is used to communicate with the network device, which is conducive to providing a wider range of communication services, reducing the complexity of the terminal device and improving the user experience.
The present application provides a satellite communication method and device, which comprises: the second communication device sends a configuration message, and the first communication device obtains a configuration message, which includes the bh information corresponding to the first BWP. Thus, the first communication device communicates based on the BH information corresponding to the first BWP, or the second communication device communicates based on the BH information corresponding to the first BWP. The method provided in this application can effectively improve the hopping beam communication mechanism in satellite communication.
