Gene Eggleston, Mitch Hansen, Anthony Rzany: Method and apparatus for communicating an optimized reply. Motorola, J Ray Wood, June 9, 1998: US05764899 (227 worldwide citation)

For optimized reply, when sending a reply (902) in a first embodiment a remote communication unit's controller (206) generates a delta between a preceding message and the reply message, and forms an optimized reply (904) using the delta and an identifier of the preceding message. On receiving the op ...

Christopher Scholefield, Ronald H Gerhards: Method and apparatus for communicating in a wireless communication system. Motorola, J Ray Wood, May 12, 1998: US05752193 (215 worldwide citation)

The disclosed system is capable of allocating plural subchannels based on user data priority. In one embodiment, after receiving a system parameters such as a current priority level from a base station, a subscriber determines whether to send an access request for plural subchannels. Upon receipt of ...

Pierre B Dupont: Method and apparatus for communication system access. Motorola, J Ray Wood, March 17, 1998: US05729542 (209 worldwide citation)

A method and apparatus for accessing a communication system relies on the use of varying access probabilities for subscribers or messages of varying priority. A serving infrastructure entity (e.g., a base station) determines access probabilities (e.g., p.sub.hi and p.sub.lo where there are two class ...

Timothy M Burke, Michael Mannette, Rob Bahary: Method and apparatus for synchronizing timing of components of a telecommunication system. Motorola, J Ray Wood, August 11, 1998: US05793772 (121 worldwide citation)

A method for synchronizing timing of signal transmissions in a telecommunication system (100) determines a "fixed portion" (222) of the propagation delay between the central unit (102) and subscribers (206, 208) in a particular node (202). Additionally, the method determines a `variable portion` (22 ...
