  • Publication number: 20200014522
    Abstract: An apparatus and a method are provided for generating and transmitting one or more band segmented bootstrap signals. For example, a transmitter may be configured to generate a plurality of sequence numbers and apply cyclic shift to each of the plurality of sequence number. The transmitter is further configured to map each of the shifted sequence numbers to at least one frequency domain subcarrier of a plurality of frequency domain subcarriers, and translate each subcarrier of the plurality of subcarriers to a time domain sequence. Each subcarrier of the plurality of subcarriers may be shifted with respect to other subcarriers of the plurality of subcarriers, thereby aligning each segment of the band segmented bootstrap signals next to each other in the frequency domain.
