TRANSMISSION AND RECEPTION OF QUAD-SUBCARRIER ORTHOGONAL FREQUENCY DIVISION MULTIPLEXED SIGNALS

ZTE Corporation, Shenzhe...

1. A method of recovering information bits from a quad-subcarrier orthogonal frequency division multiplexed (OFDM) signal
in which each subcarrier is modulated using Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK) symbols, comprising:
receiving the quad-subcarrier OFDM signal;
processing the quad-subcarrier OFDM signal as a 25-Quadrature Amplitude Modulation signal to generate a modulus signal; and
applying a 4 point Fourier transform to the modulus signal to recover the information bits.

METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR IMPLEMENTING PW CONTROL BIT CAPABILITY NEGOTIATION

ZTE CORPORATION, Shenzhe...

13. A provider edge comprising at least one processor configured to perform a label request message sending module, a label
mapping message receiving module and a control word value determination module, wherein:
when a locally configured control word value of a pseudo wire is changed, by the label request message sending module sending
label request message and the label mapping message receiving module receiving label mapping message, the provider edge acquires
a control word value locally configured by an opposite provider edge or negotiated by an opposite provider edge with respect
to the pseudo wire in a pseudo wire negotiation process;

the control word value determination module is configured to: determine the control word value negotiated with respect to
the pseudo wire according to the locally configured control word value of the provider edge and the acquired control word
value.

METHOD AND SYSTEM FOR SUBSCRIBER TO LOG IN INTERNET CONTENT PROVIDER (ICP) WEBSITE IN IDENTITY/LOCATION SEPARATION NETWORK AND LOGIN DEVICE THEREOF

ZTE Corporation, Shenzhe...

1. A method for a user to log in to an Internet Content Provider (ICP) web site, comprising:
in an identification location separation network, an Internet Service Provider (ISP) authentication center assigning to a
user a fixed identification code to be used at a network layer during establishing a Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) or
User Datagram Protocol (UDP) service connection;

the ISP authentication center authenticating the user when the user accesses the Internet, and after the authentication is
passed, the ISP authentication center sending to the user the fixed identification code which is assigned to the user in advance;
wherein the ISP authentication center which assigns the fixed identification code to the user also stores universal personal
information of the user, the universal personal information is unrelated with services;

when the ICP website receives a visit data packet of the user, the ICP website obtaining the identification code of the user
in the visit data packet, and transmitting the identification code of the user to the ISP authentication center;

after receiving the identification code of the user from the ICP website, the ISP authentication center searching a database
in the ISP authentication center using the identification code of the user as a keyword, when user information corresponding
to the identification code of the user is found, the ISP authentication center sending an authentication passed message, which
contains the identification code of the user and the universal personal information of the user, to the ICP website; thereby
said fixed identification code of the user is used both for identifying the user at the network layer and for acquiring the
universal personal information of the user from the ISP authentication center when the user accesses the ICP website; and

after receiving the authentication passed message, the ICP website querying service-related personal information of the user
in a database of the ICP website according to the identification code of the user in the authentication passed message, and
the ICP website combining the universal personal information of the user received from the ISP authentication center and the
service-related personal information of the user obtained from the database of the ICP website into complete personal information
of the user and then the user logging in to the ICP website;

thereby allowing the user to access all kinds of ICP websites using the fixed identification code distributed by the ISP authentication
center after passing only one authentication in the ISP authentication center without a need of another authentication.
