Claims

1. A method for use in a wireless device, the method comprising:
receiving a quasi-colocation (QCL) status between a reference signal and a control signal;
receiving the reference signal;
estimating one or more signal parameters based on the received reference signal;
when the QCL status indicates the reference signal and the control signal are quasi-colocated, receiving the control signal using the estimated signal parameters to optimize reception of the control signal in terms of at least one of energy efficiency and performance;
when the QCL status indicates the reference signal and the control signal are not quasi-colocated, receiving the control signal using estimated signal parameters of a different reference signal; and
wherein the reference signal comprises a synchronization signal block (SSB) and the different reference signal comprises a tracking reference signal (TRS).
2. A wireless device comprising processing circuitry, the processing circuitry operable to:
receive a quasi-colocation (QCL) status between a reference signal and a control signal;
receive the reference signal;
estimate one or more signal parameters based on the received reference signal;
when the QCL status indicates the reference signal and the control signal are quasi-colocated, receive the control signal using the estimated signal parameters to optimize reception of the control signal in terms of at least one of energy efficiency and performance;
when the QCL status indicates the reference signal and the control signal are not quasi-colocated, receive the control signal using estimated signal parameters of a different reference signal; and
wherein the reference signal comprises a synchronization signal block (SSB) and the different reference signal comprises a tracking reference signal (TRS).
3. The wireless device of claim 2, wherein receiving the QCL status comprises receiving radio resource control (RRC) configuration.
4. The wireless device of claim 2, wherein receiving the QCL status comprises receiving broadcast transmission.
5. The method of claim 2, wherein the processing circuitry is operable to receive the QCL status by receiving an indication of which attributes of the reference signal are QCL with the control signal.
