  • Publication number: 20200367260
    Abstract: A method of operating a terminal device and a base station in a wireless telecommunications system to communicate with one another using a primary component carrier operating on radio resources within a first frequency band and a secondary component carrier operating on radio resources within a second frequency band. The terminal device makes measurements of radio usage in the second frequency band, e.g. by other devices which are not part of the wireless telecommunications system but which can also use radio resources within the second frequency band. The terminal device transmits an indication of the measurements to the base station, and on the basis if this the base station establishes a configuration setting for the secondary component carrier, for example in terms of frequency resources to use for the secondary component carrier.

  • Publication number: 20200236662
    Abstract: Schemes for supporting device-to-device, D2D, communications between terminal devices in a wireless telecommunication system. A network entity, e.g. a base station, establishes a set pool of radio resources to be reserved for use for D2D communications and communicates an indication of these resources to terminal devices. On an ongoing basis the network entity monitors the extent to which the set of radio resources reserved for D2D communications is being used, for example based on feedback received from terminal devices or its own measurements. If it is determined the set of radio resources reserved for D2D communications is being under-utilized or over-utilized, the network entity may establish an updated set of radio resources to be used for D2D communications, and communicate this to the terminal devices. Thus a mechanism is provided for dynamically adjusting the size of a set of resources available for D2D communications in response to changing resource utilization.
