Telefonaktoebolaget LM Er...

1. A method for a first device-to-device capable user equipment, D2DUE, for buffer status reporting, the method comprising:determining an amount of data in a buffer of the first D2DUE to be transmitted to a second D2DUE in addition to an amount of data previously transmitted to the second D2DUE but unacknowledged by the second D2DUE;
transmitting a buffer status report to a scheduler of a network node, the buffer status report comprising information including the determined amounts; and
receiving a scheduling assignment from the network node for transmission of the unacknowledged data and the data in the buffer to the second D2DUE via a direct link between the first D2DUE and the second D2DUE.

METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR OPERATING CONFIGURATION ADAPTATION FOR INTERRUPTION OF SIGNAL TRANSMISSION

TELEFONAKTOEBOLAGET LM ER...

1. A method in a node in a wireless communication network comprising:
obtaining timing information for an external wireless system whose operation is associated with intermittent interruptions
of a radio link of the wireless communication network;

determining an interruption timing from the timing information, wherein the interruption timing is referenced to a radio link
timing and indicates an impending interruption of the radio link; and

adjusting one or more measurement configuration parameters so that a wireless device operating according to the adjusted measurement
configuration parameters will avoid making radio link measurements for the radio link during the impending interruption, and
sending the adjusted measurement configuration parameters to the wireless device.
