Title: TECHNIQUES FOR BEACON-ASSISTED SPECTRUM SHARING IN A MULTI-TIER SYSTEM
Abstract:
Various aspects described herein relate to techniques of spectrum sharing in beacon-assisted multi-tier wireless communications systems (e.g., 5G New Radio). A method of spectrum sharing in multi-tier wireless communications is provided that may include generating, at a first apparatus, a beacon signal including information of spectrum usage, wherein the information includes at least one or more of a pilot reference, resources allocation, one or more usage entities, or one or more sharing parameters, and sending the beacon signal to at least a second apparatus, wherein the first apparatus and the second apparatus are in a same tier or different tiers.
