Title: SCALABLE SYSTEM INFORMATION BLOCK (SIB) BITMAP STRUCTURE
Abstract:
Aspects of the present disclosure provide a scalable SIB bitmap structure. As described herein, a UE may generate and transmit, to an access network, a dual-layer system information block (SIB) request, wherein a first layer indicates a SIB category and a second layer indicates one or more groups within the SIB category. A base station in an access network may receive, from a UE, the dual-layer SIB request. The scalable, efficient bitmap structure may be shared by the UE and access network, thereby enabling SIB-on-Demand requests by the UE and responses to SIB-on-Demand requests by the access network.
