Title: TRANSMISSION OF BEAM REFINEMENT REFERENCE SIGNALS (BRRS)
Abstract:
Technology for an eNodeB operable to process beam refinement reference signals (BRRS) for transmission to a plurality of user equipments (UEs) is disclosed. The eNodeB can assign, using a downlink control information (DCI) format, a grouped BRRS configuration that includes grouped BRRS symbols, and each group of BRRS symbols can be associated with a different transmit (Tx) beam. The eNodeB can process the grouped BRRS configuration for transmission on one or more Tx beams to the plurality of UEs. The grouped BRRS symbols can enable each of the plurality of UEs to select a receive (Rx) beam for data reception.
