  • Publication number: 20220053570
    Abstract: This application provides an uplink transmission method and a communication apparatus. When a terminal device does not obtain a TA value in a two-step random access process, the terminal device can transmit, based on a preset TA value or a maintained TA value, uplink data on an uplink transmission resource assigned in the second step of random access, or perform, based on a preset TA value or a maintained TA value, a feedback for downlink data transmitted on a downlink transmission resource assigned in the second step of random access. In this way, uplink synchronization can be implemented when no TA value is assigned in a random access process.
