INFRASTRUCTURE EQUIPMENT AND METHOD FOR DETERMINING A CONGESTION STATE

SCA IPLA Holdings Inc., ...

1. An infrastructure equipment for forming part of a mobile communications network, the mobile communications network being
for communicating data one or more of to and from mobile communications devices, the infrastructure equipment comprising:
circuitry configured to:
receive an indication of a relative type of one or more communications bearers provided by the mobile communications network
on request to the mobile communications devices in accordance with a corresponding relative type of data packets to be communicated
via the communications bearers for supporting communications sessions, respective indications of the relative type of the
data packets being used to configure the communications bearers,

determine, for the mobile communications network, a number of each type of configured communications bearer of the communications
bearers from among a plurality of pre-determined communications bearer types provided for the mobile communications devices
within the mobile communications network, and

determine a state of the mobile communications network in accordance with the determined number of each type of the configured
communications bearers for each of the plurality of pre-determined communications bearer types.

HIGH RELIABILITY REDUNDANT VOTING SYSTEM FOR A SIGNAL RECEIVED BY VOTING PROCESSORS IN A COMMUNICATION SYSTEM

Motorola Solutions, Inc.,...

1. A method for providing a redundant voting system for voting on a signal received by a plurality of base stations in a communication
system, the method comprising:
a first voting processor transmitting a downstream message to a plurality of base stations indicating a return base station
to voting processor (BS-VP) group associated with the first voting processor and a second voting processor;

receiving a plurality of group messages addressed to the return group from the plurality of base stations and associated with
a particular signal received from a signal source by each of the plurality of base stations, the particular signal including
an address of a target device to which the particular signal is directed;

the first voting processor determining a recovered signal, wherein the recovered signal comprises a representation of the
received particular signal of at least one of the plurality of base stations having a quality measure better than a quality
measure associated with each received particular signal from all other of the plurality of base stations; and

responsive to the first voting processor determining that the second voting processor is no longer operational, the first
voting processor transmitting the recovered signal to a voting processor to infrastructure (VP-IN) group associated with an
infrastructure device and the first and second voting processors.
