Title: ENHANCED MACHINE-TYPE COMMUNICATIONS (EMTC) CELL ACQUISITION USING NARROW BAND (NB-IOT) SYNCHRONIZATION CHANNEL
Abstract:
Method and apparatus for wireless communication are described for utilizing narrow band (NB-loT) synchronization channel(s) for enhanced machine-type communications (eMTC) cell acquisition. The method and apparatus may perform a first portion of cell acquisition using an NB-loT acquisition signal. A second portion of cell acquisition may be performed using an eMTC acquisition signal determined based at least in part on the NB-loT acquisition signal.
