  • Patent number: 11330502
    Abstract: A communication method and an apparatus are disclosed, and the method includes: receiving, by a terminal, first indication information sent by a first network device; and if the first indication information indicates the second network device supports the enhanced signal transmission, receiving, by the terminal, an enhanced downlink signal sent by the second network device, where the second network device is a neighboring network device of the first network device. This avoids a technical problem that a delay is relatively long because the terminal still receives a downlink signal in an existing manner when the terminal cannot accurately obtain whether the second network device supports the enhanced signal transmission.

  • Patent number: 11329700
    Abstract: A method for downlink transmission in a cloud radio access network for a number of users is applied in a central unit. The central unit determines a specific number of remote radio heads (RRHs) as non-serving RRHs based on a predetermined data compression ratio. For each of many pieces of user equipment (UEs), the central unit determines a combination of RRHs which are non-serving in coordinated multi-point transmission (CoMP) from a plurality of RRHs based on the determined specific number, and then performs CoMP downlink transmission based on the combination of RRHs which are non-serving in the CoMP.

  • Patent number: 11330457
    Abstract: A beam indication (BI) mechanism is proposed to provide user equipment (UE) information of network (NW) beam(s) for later transmission. UE can then select its UE beam(s) for the later transmission based on the BI. In one embodiment, NW provides beam management configuration to UE via Radio Resource Control (RRC) signaling, and then provides beam indication index signaling to UE via MAC-CE or DCI. The beam management configuration comprises a mapping table between network beams and configured reference signal (RS) resources. The beam indication index signaling indicates one or more preferred beam pair links (BPLs). Upon triggering a beam management procedure by the network, UE is able to identify the beam management procedure and selects corresponding UE beam(s) based on the beam management configuration and the beam indication index signaling.

  • Patent number: 11329849
    Abstract: Aspects of the present disclosure disclose techniques for the indication of the allocation of the downlink (DL) demodulation reference signal (DM-RS) ports for the data channel in NR communications. In some examples, the channel state information (CSI) reference signal (CSI-RS) may be associated with a corresponding DM-RS for a DL data channel. The transmitting device, in some examples, may further transmit a notification that provides resource allocations (e.g., port allocations) that minimize the redundant information that is required to be transmitted from the base station to the user equipment (UE) when the DM-RS port allocation is the same as the CSI-RS port allocation received by the UE in an earlier time slot.
