CLAIMS

What is claimed:

1. A method for receiving data from a plurality of cells in a wireless communication network, the method comprising:

receiving data from a plurality cells in a multi-point set, the multipoint set comprising a primary serving cell and an assisting serving cell;

triggering a reporting event based on a cell quality of at least one of the primary serving cell, the assisting serving cell, or a non-assisting cell;

receiving an indication of a change to the multi-point set; and

modifying the multi-point set based on the indication.

2. The method of claim 1, further comprising:

sending a measurement report to the wireless communication network, the measurement report comprising an indication of the reporting event and the cell quality associated with the primary serving cell, the assisting serving cell, and the non-assisting cell.

3. The method of claim 1, wherein the reporting event comprising a cell adding event, and the cell adding event is triggered when the non-assisting cell enters a reporting range.

4. The method of claim 1, wherein the reporting event comprises a cell adding event, and the cell adding event is triggered when the cell quality of the non-assisting cell exceeds a predetermined threshold.

5. The method of claim 1, wherein the reporting event comprises a cell removing event, and the cell removing event is triggered when the cell quality of the assisting cell is below a predetermined threshold.

6. The method of claim 1, wherein the reporting event comprises a cell removing event, and the cell removing event is triggered when the assisting cell leaves a reporting range.

7. The method of claim 1, wherein the reporting event comprising a cell replacement event, the cell replacement event is triggered when the cell quality of the non-assisting cell exceeds the cell quality of the assisting cell for a predetermined period of time.

8. A method for receiving data from a plurality of serving cells in a wireless communication network, the method comprising:

receiving, at a wireless receive and transmit unit (WTRU), pre-configuration information associated with a plurality of target cells;

receiving a first indication from the wireless communication network to activate a first target cell;

connecting to the first target cell based on the pre-configuration information associated with the first target cell; and

receiving data via the first target assisting cell.

9. The method of claim 8, further comprising:

receiving a second indication from the network to deactivate the first target cell; and stop receiving data via the first target cell.

10. The method of claim 8, further comprising:

receiving a second indication from the network to activate a second target cell of the plurality of target cells as a second assisting serving cell; and

starting to receive data via the second target cell.

11. The method of claim 8, wherein the first indication comprises at least one of a layer 1 order, a layer 2 order, a medium access control (MAC) control element, or a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) order.

12. A wireless transmit and receive unit (WTRU) configured to receive data from a plurality of serving cells in a wireless communication network, the WTRU comprising:

a transceiver configured to:

receive pre-configuration information associated with a target cell list, the target cell list comprising the plurality of target cells, and

receive data via at least one of the plurality of target cells;

a memory configured to:

store the pre-configuration information associated with the target cell list; and a processor configured to:

determine that a first cell has been added to an active set associated with the WTRU, and

add the first cell to the target cell list.

13. The WTRU of claim 12, wherein the transceiver is further configured to receive pre-configuration information associated with the first cell, and the memory is further configured to store the pre-configuration information associated the first cell.

14. The WTRU of claim 12, wherein the processor is further configured to:

determine that a second cell on the target cell list has been removed from an active set associated with the WTRU;

remove the second cell from the target cell list; and

delete pre-configuration information associated the second cell.

15. A wireless transmit and receive unit (WTRU) configured to receive data from a plurality of serving cells in a wireless communication network, the WTRU comprising:

a transceiver configured to:

receive data from a primary serving cell and an assisting serving cell;

a memory configured to:

store a target cell list comprising a plurality of target cells, and

store pre-configuration information associated each of target cells;

a processor configured to:

trigger a reporting event based on the cell quality of at least one of the target cells, the primary serving or the assisting serving cell; and

the transceiver further configured to:

receive a serving cell change order indicating a change of at least one of the primary serving cell or the assisting cell.

16. The WTRU of claim 15, wherein the order indicates the assisting cell is to be changed to a first target cell on the target cell list, and

the processor is further configured to:

connect to the first target cell based on the pre-configuration information associated with the first target cell, and

the transceiver is further configured to:

receive data from the first target cell and the primary cell.

17. The WTRU of claim 15, wherein the order indicates the primary cell is to be changed to a first target cell on the target cell list, and

the processor is further configured to:

connect to the first target cell based on the pre-configuration information associated with the first target cell, and

the transceiver is further configured to:

stop receiving data from the primary serving cell, and

receive data from the first target cell and the assisting serving cell.

18. The WTRU of claim 17, wherein the processor is further configured to monitor a target cell that triggered the reporting event for serving cell change orders for a predetermined period of time.

19. The WTRU of claim 15, wherein the transceiver is further configured to:

send the channel quality indicator report for at least one of the target cell on the target cell list, and

the processor is further configured to:

monitor a channel of the at least one target cell for serving cell change orders, wherein the serving cell change order is generated based on the channel quality indicator report, wherein the serving cell change order is received via the at least one target cell, and the at least one target cell.

20. The WTRU of claim 15, wherein the reporting event includes a cell swapping event, and the reporting event is triggered when the cell quality of the assisting serving cell exceeds the cell quality of the primary serving cell by a predetermined value, and wherein the cell change order indicates a swap of the primary serving cell and the assisting serving cell.
