By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Telecommunications Weekly -- A patent by the inventors Khay-Ibbat, Samy (San Francisco, CA); Tabet, Tarik (San Jose, CA), filed on January 15, 2016, was published online on September 26, 2017, according to news reporting originating from Alexandria, Virginia, by VerticalNews correspondents.

Patent number 9775132 is assigned to APPLE INC. (Cupertino, CA).

The following quote was obtained by the news editors from the background information supplied by the inventors: "As designs for wireless mobile devices (e.g., user equipment (UE)) evolve, there is a trend toward smaller devices and more streamlined housings. Some examples of these smaller devices or more streamlined designs include wearable devices such as watches that are worn on the wrist or glasses that are worn in the manner of traditional eyewear. Another example is pendants that may be attached to a strap and hung around a user's neck or wrist. A final example is a clip-on that may be clipped onto an article of clothing such as pockets or clipped onto an accessory such as a bag or purse.

"These smaller and streamlined designs generally result in less available space for components of the wireless mobile devices. For example, the batteries of such devices need to be smaller and therefore have a correspondingly smaller capacity. In another example, the designs generally require that all antennas be internal antennas so as not to change the form of the mobile device. This may result in shorter antennas because of the lack of availability of space within the housing of the mobile device. These constraints on the design of the wireless devices may result in a loss of performance for certain wireless functionalities.

"However, users expect these devices to operate and have similar performance characteristics as the standard wireless mobile devices to which the users are accustomed. Thus, if these smaller mobile devices have a loss of performance, the user experience will be degraded and users are less likely to adopt these new types of devices."

In addition to the background information obtained for this patent, VerticalNews journalists also obtained the inventors' summary information for this patent: "According to an exemplary embodiment, a method is described that is performed by a network component of a network configured to establish a connection with a user equipment. The method includes transmitting a page to the user equipment for a call establishment procedure, determining whether an acknowledgement is received from the user equipment in response to the page. When no acknowledgement has been received in response to the page, determining a number of pages that have been transmitted to the user equipment for the call establishment procedure, transmitting a further page to the user equipment for the call establishment procedure when the number of pages is less than a page threshold and performing a page failure procedure when the number of pages exceeds the page threshold.

"According to a further exemplary embodiment, a base station is described. The base station has a transceiver, a non-transitory memory having a program stored thereon and a processor executing the program, wherein the execution of the program causes the processor to perform operations. The operations include transmitting a page to the user equipment for a call establishment procedure, determining whether an acknowledgement is received from the user equipment in response to the page. When no acknowledgement has been received in response to the page, determining a number of pages that have been transmitted to the user equipment for the call establishment procedure, transmitting a further page to the user equipment for the call establishment procedure when the number of pages is less than a page threshold and performing a page failure procedure when the number of pages exceeds the page threshold.

"According to an exemplary embodiment, a method is described that is performed by a network component of a network configured to establish a connection with a user equipment. The method includes transmitting a radio resource control (RRC) connection release message to the user equipment, maintaining a context for the user equipment when an acknowledgement for the RRC connection release message is not received, transmitting a first page and transmitting a second page when a further acknowledgement for the first page is not received.

"According to a further exemplary embodiment, a base station is described. The base station has a transceiver, a non-transitory memory having a program stored thereon and a processor executing the program, wherein the execution of the program causes the processor to perform operations. The operations include transmitting a radio resource control (RRC) connection release message to a user equipment, maintaining a context for the user equipment when an acknowledgement for the RRC connection release message is not received, transmitting a first page and transmitting a second page when a further acknowledgement for the first page is not received."
