  • Patent number: 12041615
    Abstract: Example embodiments relate to communication of uplink control information. A method implemented at a terminal device comprises obtaining a plurality of uplink grants available for uplink transmission to a network device, the plurality of uplink grants indicating resources for the uplink transmission; determining prioritization of the plurality of uplink grants in transmission of uplink control information based on a predetermined prioritization policy; and selecting, based on the determined prioritization, an uplink grant from the plurality of uplink grants for transmission of the uplink control information to the network device. In such a way, it is possible to increase a probability of transmission of the uplink control information and/or a probability of improving power efficiency of the terminal device.

  • Patent number: 12041013
    Abstract: Example embodiments of the present disclosure relate to channel information transmitting for dormant bandwidth part. According to embodiments, a solution for channel information transmitting for dormant bandwidth part has been proposed. A terminal device is configured a periodicity when an active downlink (DL) bandwidth part (BWP) is a dormant BWP. The periodicity is different from a further periodicity which is configured and used when the active DL BWP is a non-dormant BWP. The terminal device uses resourced configured for the active uplink (UL) BWP but with the different periodicity. In this way, it allows sounding reference signal (SRS)/channel state information (CSI) reporting without duplicating configurations of BWPs. It can configure a required longer periodicity but reduce the SRS configuration for each UL BWP.

  • Patent number: 12041651
    Abstract: Example embodiments of the present disclosure relate to logical channel prioritization. A method includes obtaining an uplink grant from a network device, the uplink grant indicating uplink resources for transmission to the network device and selecting a logical channel prioritization setting from a plurality of logical channel prioritization settings based on a predetermined policy related to the uplink grant, the logical channel prioritization settings defining different sets of prioritization parameters for uplink data in at least one logical channel and uplink control information in occupying the uplink resources. The method further includes generating, based on the logical channel prioritization setting, a packet data unit including at least one of the uplink control information or at least one part of the uplink data for transmission to the network device using the uplink resources.

Each of the one or more candidate beams is associated with a respective one of the one or more serving cells. The terminal device then transmits at least a portion of the information to a network device associated with the one or more serving cells.

  • Patent number: 12022523
    Abstract: Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to mechanism for first random access mode falling back to second random access mode. According to embodiments of the present disclosure, the fallback to second random access mode is indicated in messageB and the user equipment only needs to monitor the messageB for the quick mode on the downlink control signal which is addressed to an identifier. The user equipment does not need to monitor the downlink control channel for the second random access mode. In this way, the user equipment is allowed to fall back to the second random access mode without further retry of the quick mode, thereby reducing overload and latency.
