  • Publication number: 20220174758
    Abstract: A method and device are disclosed for a remote User Equipment (UE) to support UE-to-Network relay communication. The remote UE establishes a PC5 connection with a first relay UE for a relay communication with a first network node. The remote UE also performs a Radio Resource Control (RRC) connection establishment procedure with the first network node via the first relay UE. Furthermore, the remote UE transmits a first RRC message to a second network node via a second relay UE for requesting RRC connection re-establishment, wherein the first RRC message includes a first Cell Radio Network Temporary Identifier (C-RNTI) of the remote UE. Also, the remote UE receives a second RRC message from the second network node via the second relay UE for re-establishing a RRC connection between the second network node and the remote UE, wherein the second RRC message includes a second C-RNTI of the remote UE.

    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses of handling a bandwidth part (BWP) inactivity timer during a Random Access procedure in a wireless communication system are disclosed herein. In one method, a user equipment (UE) starts a BWP timer for a serving cell operating in a paired spectrum. The UE initiates a contention-based Random Access (RA) procedure on the serving cell and stops the BWP timer. The UE starts the BWP timer upon successful completion of the RA procedure, wherein the UE considers the contention-based RA procedure successfully completed if a Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH) addressed to a Cell Network Temporary Identifier (C-RNTI) of the UE is received and the PDCCH contains an uplink grant for a new transmission.
