  • Patent number: 10945277
    Abstract: A user equipment (UE) receives control signaling in a scheduling bandwidth part (BWP). The control signaling indicates switching from a first active BWP to a second active BWP or switching from a first active BWP pair to a second active BWP pair for the UE. The control signaling aligns with a time unit boundary, such as a slot boundary, that is associated with the scheduling BWP. In the event that a scheduled BWP for a UE has a different numerology than a scheduling BWP that is currently active for the UE, the UE could switch from the scheduling BWP to the scheduled BWP based on a control signaling monitoring periodicity of the scheduled BWP.

  • Patent number: 10912080
    Abstract: A signal scrambling method and apparatus, and a signal descrambling method and apparatus are disclosed. In the signal scrambling method, a communications apparatus scrambles a signal by using a scrambling sequence, and sends the scrambled signal. In the signal descrambling method, a communications apparatus receives a signal, and descrambles the signal by using a scrambling sequence. An initial value of the scrambling sequence is determined based on a time unit number corresponding to a frame structure parameter used for transmitting the signal, so that different scrambling sequences can be used to scramble signals that are transmitted by using different frame structure parameters. Therefore, interference randomization can be implemented for signal scrambling, and this can be applicable to various application scenarios in 5G NR to improve performance.
