Title: PAGING METHOD AND APPARATUS
Abstract:
Provided are a paging method and apparatus, relating to the technical field of wireless communications. The method comprises: determining a current paging signal to be sent for a target cell, wherein the paging signal carries an identifier of a terminal to be paged in the target cell, and the target cell comprises n scanning areas respectively corresponding to n beam scanning nodes, where n is greater than one; determining a scanning starting point of a corresponding scanning area on which the n beam scanning nodes perform beam scanning; and respectively performing, based on the paging signal, the beam scanning starting point of the n beam scanning nodes and a pre-set scanning direction, beam scanning on the corresponding scanning area through the n beam scanning nodes, so as to send the paging signal by beam scanning to the terminal in the corresponding scanning area. The beam scanning is respectively performed on the corresponding scanning area of a cell by means of the n beam scanning nodes, therefore the time required for beam scanning for the cell is saved and the efficiency of sending paging signals is improved.
