Title: METHOD FOR DETERMINING CHANNEL STATE AND COMMUNICATION DEVICE
Abstract:
Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to a method for determining a channel state and a communication device. In example embodiments a first subinterval state of a channel is predicted. The first subinterval state indicates whether the channel is idle in a first subinterval of a target time interval in which the communication device operates in a transmitting mode. Then, an interval state of the channel is determined at least in part based on the first subinterval state of the channel. The interval state indicates whether the channel is idle in the target time interval. Such determination of the channel state may improve efficiency of channel assessment.
