Title: BEAM MANAGEMENT METHOD, TERMINAL DEVICE, AND NETWORK DEVICE
Abstract:
The present application provides a beam management method, a terminal device, and a network device. The beam management method comprises: a terminal device measures a beam of a network device; the terminal device sends an identifier of a first beam to the network device, wherein the first beam is a beam which fails or a beam which meets a first condition, the identifier of the first beam is sent to the network device by means of physical layer control signaling, and in another possible design, the identifier of the first beam is sent to the network device by means of MAC layer control signaling. The terminal device can send the identifier of the first beam to the network device after measuring the beam, and therefore, the network device can further manage the beam, for example, the network device readjusts the beam to a beam that provides a service for the terminal device. Moreover, the identifier of the first beam is sent to the network device by means of the physical layer control signaling or the MAC layer control signaling, and therefore, it can be ensured that the identifier of the first beam is reported to the network device quickly and in a timely manner.
