Title: ANTENNA BEAM MANAGEMENT FOR MULTI-CONNECTION COMMUNICATIONS
Abstract:
Antenna beam sweeping according to the present disclosure involves different communication devices that are within an interference range of each other transmitting beam sweeping signals using different communication resources. This allows a receiver to distinguish between beam sweeping signals that are received from different transmitters, and may facilitate antenna beam alignment in multi-connection scenarios. Beam indices could be used to identify antenna beams for antenna beam management, in control signaling between base stations and User Equipment (UE), for example. Beam tracking and other aspects of antenna beam management are also disclosed.
