Network Node Configured To Provide Wireless Access With Enhanced Resource Allocation

When a network node providing wireless access and serving plurality of user devices receives information on channel conditions from one or more user devices, the network node determines available resources for traffic to and from the one or more user devices; and, when there is higher priority traffic, the network node uses reliability increasing resource allocation for the higher priority traffic at least as long as there are enough resources available.

3 Independent Claims

  • Independent Claim 1. A network node configured to provide wireless access, the network node comprising: at least one processorand at least one memory including computer program codethe at least one memory and computer program code configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the network node at least to perform: keeping track on traffic loaddetermining, in response to receiving information on channel conditions from one or more user devices, based on the traffic load, available resources for traffic to and from the one or more user devicesusing, instead of normal resource allocation for higher priority traffic, the normal resource allocation being based on channel conditions indicated in the information on channel conditions, reliability increasing resource allocation for the higher priority traffic at least as long as there are, based on the traffic load, enough resources availableand shifting, in response to enough resources not being available and a mixed traffic load of higher priority traffic and non-higher priority traffic, resources from the non-higher priority traffic to the higher priority traffic, the shifting including allocating resources to the non-higher priority traffic assuming better channel conditions than those indicated in the information on channel conditions, and continuing the using the reliability increasing resource allocation for the higher priority traffic.

  • Independent Claim 11. A method, comprising: keeping, by a network node providing wireless access, track on traffic loadreceiving, by the network node, information on channel conditions from one or more user devicesdetermining, by the network node, based on the traffic load, available resources for traffic to and from the one or more user devicesusing, by the network node, instead of normal resource allocation for higher priority traffic, the normal resource allocation being based on channel conditions indicated in the information on channel conditions, reliability increasing resource allocation for the higher priority traffic at least as long as there are, based on the traffic load, enough resources availableand shifting, by the network node, when there is not enough resources available and there is a mixed traffic load of higher priority traffic and non-higher priority traffic, resources from the non-higher priority traffic to the higher priority traffic, the shifting including allocating resources to the non-higher priority traffic assuming better channel conditions than those indicated in the information on channel conditions, and continuing the using, by the network node, the reliability increasing resources allocation for higher priority traffic.

  • Independent Claim 13. A computer program embodied on a non-transitory computer readable medium, said program comprising program instructions for causing an apparatus to perform at least the following: keeping track on traffic loaddetermining, in response to receiving information on channel conditions from one or more user devices, based on the traffic load, available resources for traffic to and from the one or more user devicesusing, instead of normal resource allocation for higher priority traffic, the normal resource allocation being based on channel conditions indicated in the information on channel conditions, reliability increasing resource allocation for the higher priority traffic at least as long as there are, based on the traffic load, enough resources availableand shifting, in response to enough resources not being available and a mixed traffic load of higher priority traffic and non-higher priority traffic, resources from the non-higher priority traffic to the higher priority traffic, the shifting including allocating resources to the non-higher priority traffic assuming better channel conditions than those indicated in the information on channel conditions, and continuing the using the reliability increasing resource allocation for the higher priority traffic.
