Title: METHODS AND DEVICES FOR GRANTING DPCCH BURSTS FOR ENHANCED UPLINK
Abstract:
The present invention relates to granting time intervals for transmitting a control signal burst and, more particularly, to methods and devices for granting Dedicated Physical Control Channel (DPCCH) bursts for Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA). A base station determines whether a predetermined condition for transmitting a grant signal is satisfied and, if so, determines a schedule for receiving a control signal burst from a mobile device and transmits, in accordance with the determined schedule, the grant signal to at least said mobile device. Correspondingly, a mobile device transmits a report to a base station causing it to determine, in accordance with the report, a schedule for transmitting a control signal burst. Then the mobile device receives grant signals in accordance with the determined schedule and transmits a control signal burst in accordance with the grant signal.
