Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR IMPLEMENTING MEASUREMENT IN MULTI-ANTENNA SYSTEM
Abstract:
An apparatus and a method for implementing measurement in a multi-antenna system. The apparatus is provided in a base station, comprising: a measurement instruction generation module, configured to generate a measurement instruction according to beam identification information and information to be measured; a measurement instruction sending module, configured to send the measurement instruction to a terminal by means of user plane signaling; and a measurement result receiving module, configured to receive a measured quantity sent by the terminal. Alternatively, the apparatus is provided in a terminal, comprising: a measurement instruction receiving module, configured to receive a measurement instruction; a processing module, configured to parse out beam identification information and information to be measured that is comprised in the measurement instruction, and to measure the beam according to the beam identification information and the information to be measured so as to obtain a measured quantity; and a measured quantity sending module, configured to send the obtained measured quantity to a base station by means of user plane signaling. In the present disclosure, a measurement instruction is sent by means of user plane signaling, which reduces signaling overhead compared to conventional methods using a control plane.
