  • Patent number: 10903971
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for indicating occupation of resources through an indication channel, and a storage medium. The method includes, through pre-configuring, a time domain indication and a frequency domain indication for indicating the occupation of the second service resources by the first service through an indication channel. As few K+S bits as possible indicate a position for the transmission of the first service, the duration of the first service, and resource occupation by the first service in the frequency domain. This reduces the impact of the first service on the second service and the overhead of the indication channel for the transmission of the first service while ensuring the transmission of the first service.
