1. A Wireless Transmit/Receive Unit (WTRU) comprising:
at least one antenna;
a first transceiver configured to receive perform at a first frequency via the at least one antenna;
a second transceiver configured to transmit at a second frequency; and
a processor configured to perform measurements based on signals received via the first transceiver, determine an existence
of interference between the first transceiver and the second transceiver, and autonomously determine timing of the measurements
to be performed based on transmissions of the second transceiver.

METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR HANDLING UPLINK TRANSMISSIONS USING MULTIPLE UPLINK CARRIERS

InterDigital Patent Holdi...

1. A method for allocating power to each of a plurality of uplink carriers, the method comprising:
determining a power for non-scheduled transmissions;
determining an available power for scheduled transmissions associated with the plurality of uplink carriers;
allocating the available power for the scheduled transmissions among the plurality of uplink carriers, wherein the plurality
of uplink carriers comprises a primary carrier; and

allocating the power for the non-scheduled transmissions to the primary carrier.

METHOD FOR SIGNALING MU-MIMO PARAMETERS

INTERDIGITAL PATENT HOLDI...

1. A method for signaling multi-user multiple-input multiple-output (MU-MIMO) transmission parameters, the method comprising:
receiving a first downlink control information message with a distributed virtual resource block (DVRB) flag, a power share
bit, and transmission precoding matrix index (TPMI) bits conveying a first set of transmission parameters on a condition of
a two transmitting antenna configuration, wherein the TPMI bits are configured to indicate TPMIs of wireless transmit receive
units (WTRUs) co-scheduled using the two transmitting antenna configuration;

processing the first downlink control information message and applying the first set of transmission parameters to perform
MU-MIMO reception in accordance with the two transmitting antenna configuration;

receiving a second downlink control information message with a DVRB flag and additional TPMI bits conveying a second set of
transmission parameters on a condition of a four transmitting antenna configuration, wherein the additional TPMI bits for
the four transmitting antenna configuration comprise more TPMI bits than are used for the two transmitting antenna configuration,
wherein the additional TPMI bits are configured to indicate TPMIs of WTRUs scheduled using the four transmitting antenna configuration,
and wherein power sharing for the four transmitting antenna configuration is configured to be obtained from the additional
TPMI bits; and

processing the second downlink control information message and applying the second set of transmission parameters to perform
MU-MIMO reception for the four transmitting antenna configuration.
