|1. (WO2018028617) METHOD FOR DETERMINING HYBRID AUTOMATIC REPEAT REQUEST PROCESS NUMBER, BASE STATION, AND USER EQUIPMENT|
|Applicants:||NTT DOCOMO, INC.
|Title:||METHOD FOR DETERMINING HYBRID AUTOMATIC REPEAT REQUEST PROCESS NUMBER, BASE STATION, AND USER EQUIPMENT|
Disclosed are a method for determining a hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) process number (HPN) allocated to downlink link (DL) data, a method for notifying an HPN allocated to the DL data, a method for allocating an HPN to DL data, a base station, and a user equipment. The method for determining an HPN allocated to DL data comprises: receiving DL control information (DCI) associated with DL data; determining, according to the DCI, whether the DL data satisfies a preset condition; and when the DL data satisfies the preset condition, determining, according to an HPN field and an additional field in the DCI, an HPN allocated to the DL data. Alternatively, the method for determining an HPN allocated to DL data comprises: receiving DCI related to current DL data; determining whether HPN fields in the DC are preset values indicating at least a first HPN and a second HPN; and when it is determined that the HPN fields are preset values, determining an HPN allocated to the current DL data, according to a reception state of DL data sent before the current DL data. Accordingly, overheads and power consumption are not increased when more than 8 HARQ processes are supported.
