  • Patent number: 10973034
    Abstract: Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communications are described. In some systems, a base station may configure a user equipment (UE) with multiple control resource sets (CORESETs) for control channel monitoring. In some cases (e.g., based on a random access (RACH) procedure), the base station may update a CORESET with an updated downlink beam and, correspondingly, an updated active quasi-co-location (QCL) assumption for monitoring. In some cases, this updated active QCL assumption may cause the total number of active QCL assumptions to exceed a UE threshold value for monitoring. The UE may determine a priority order for monitoring the CORESETs, where the CORESET corresponding to the updated active QCL is assigned highest priority and the remaining CORESETs are prioritized based on CORESET or search space parameters, and the UE may either drop CORESETs from monitoring or modify active QCL assumptions for CORESETs based on the determined priority order.
