  • Publication number: 20240163063
    Abstract: A wireless device may receive a first radio resource control (RRC) reconfiguration message triggering a first active bandwidth part (BWP) switching to a first BWP of a first cell. The wireless device may receive a second RRC reconfiguration message triggering a second active BWP switching to a second BWP of a second cell. The second active BWP switching may at least partially overlap in time with the first active BWP switching. Based on the overlapping, the wireless device may communicate using the second BWP in a first slot after a time duration. The time duration may be determined based on a duration of the first active BWP switching.
