Claim of US Patent No. 10,694,525

1. A device, comprising:a non-transitory computer-readable medium storing a set of processor-executable instructions; and
one or more processors configured to execute the set of processor-executable instructions, wherein executing the set of processor-executable instructions causes the one or more processors to:
receive information specifying a plurality of sets of frequencies that are associated with a base station;
identify a first set of frequencies, of the plurality of sets of frequencies, that has a smallest width of the plurality of sets of frequencies;
use the first set of frequencies for a connection between a User Equipment (“UE”) and the base station;
rank the remaining sets of frequencies, from the plurality of sets of frequencies, according to a respective width of each of the remaining sets of frequencies;
determine that additional frequencies, in addition to the first set of frequencies, should be used for the connection between the UE and the base station;
select, based on the ranking, one or more sets of frequencies, of the remaining sets of frequencies, to add to the connection between the UE and the base station; and
add the selected one or more sets of frequencies to the connection between the UE and the base station.
