  • Publication number: 20210037530
    Abstract: Methods and apparatuses for selecting beam for preconfigured uplink resources in a wireless communication system are disclosed herein. In one method, a user equipment (UE) receives, from a network node, a signaling to configure at least one Preconfigured Uplink Resource (PUR) associated with one or more beams from multiple beams. The UE selects a first beam from the multiple beams and performs a transmission of data in RRC_INACTIVE state using the at least one PUR via the first beam if the first beam fulfills at least one condition, wherein the at least one condition comprises that the first beam is associated with the at least one PUR and Reference Symbol Received Power (RSRP) of the first beam is better than a first threshold. The UE initiates a Random Access (RA) procedure and performs the transmission during the RA procedure if no beam of the multiple beams fulfills the at least one condition.

  • Publication number: 20210037397
    Abstract: A method for a wireless communications system is disclosed. In one example, a user equipment (UE) (e.g. a mobile phone), receives an indication from a network about one or more UE beams that the UE can use for transmission or reception. The UE uses the one or more UE beams for transmission or reception. If and when a certain condition is fulfilled, for example, there is a beam tracking failure, the UE transmits or receives a specific signal via a specific UE beam. The specific UE beam is different from the one or more UE beams that were indicated by the network, and is selected by the UE.

  • Patent number: 10701655
    Abstract: To perform successful transmission using Preconfigured Uplink Resources (PUR) in RRC_IDLE state, the UE (User Equipment) should maintain a valid timing adjustment (or timing alignment, TA). Currently the maximum of TA timer (excluding infinity value) is 10.24 seconds. In many or most cases, the TA timer will expire before the next PUR occasion occurs, resulting in the UE being unable to perform transmission using PUR. To solve such issue, the UE could apply different length for the TA timer in RRC_IDLE state. A method and apparatus are disclosed from the perspective of a User Equipment (UE). In one embodiment, the method includes the UE receiving a configuration of a first timer indicating a first length in a RRCConnectionRelease message, wherein the first timer is used to control validity of a first Timing Adjustment (TA) for a transmission using Preconfigured Uplink Resources (PUR) in RRC_IDLE state.
