Title: FRAME STRUCTURE SIGNALING FOR MULTEFIRE
Abstract:
Methods, systems, and devices for wireless communication are described. A downlink control message type used for triggering uplink transmissions may convey additional information, including timing for uplink transmissions. The type or format of the control channel (e.g., physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) type or format) used to trigger an uplink transmission may also indicate a starting time or a time period, or both for the uplink transmission. In some cases, downlink control information (DCI) may indicate the function of a downlink control message that includes the DCI. Additionally, system information identified in a downlink control message may be used to determine a subframe length which, in some examples, may be used to determine whether or how long to monitor a discovery reference signal (DRS) subframe.
