  • Publication number: 20190059109
    Abstract: A random access method and apparatus are provided. The random access method includes receiving, by a terminal, virtual cell information at a virtual frequency, where the virtual cell information includes information about at least one physical cell indicated by the virtual cell; determining, by the terminal according to the information about the at least one physical cell, a target physical cell to be pre-accessed; and accessing, by the terminal, the target physical cell using information about the target physical cell. According to embodiments of the present disclosure, information about a physical cell can be received and transmitted at a virtual frequency, such that an idle virtual frequency resource is fully utilized, and a latency is reduced.

  • Publication number: 20190044782
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present invention provide an uplink subcarrier spacing indication method, a base station, and a terminal. The base station determines indication information that is used to indicate a first uplink subcarrier spacing supported by the base station, and communicates with the terminal according to the indication information. During the communication, the base station indicates the first uplink subcarrier spacing supported by the base station to the terminal, so that the terminal subsequently determines, based on the first uplink subcarrier spacing, a second uplink subcarrier spacing supported by the terminal; or the base station receives information that is sent by the terminal and that carries a second uplink subcarrier spacing, in other words, receives an indication from the terminal, so as to learn of the second uplink subcarrier spacing supported by the terminal or to be used by the terminal to send an uplink signal.

  • Publication number: 20180255492
    Abstract: Example handover methods and devices in an ultra-dense network are disclosed. One example method includes the following operations. A source base station sends a first message to a target base station, where the first message carries an arrival time indication of a terminal, and the arrival time indication is used to indicate a time at which or a time range in which the terminal is to access the target base station. The source base station receives a second message fed back by the target base station, where the second message carries a granted resource that is allocated for the arrival time indication of the terminal. The source base station adds the granted resource to a command message, and sends the command message to the terminal.
