Title: REUSING LONG-TERM EVOLUTION (LTE) REFERENCE SIGNALS FOR NESTED SYSTEM OPERATIONS
Abstract:
Wireless communications systems and methods related to reusing long-term evolution (LTE) resources in a nested network system are provided. A first wireless communication device receives, from a second wireless communication device, a reference signal configuration of a first network of a long-term evolution (LTE) radio access technology (RAT). The first wireless communication device and the second wireless communication device are associated with a second network of another RAT. The first wireless communication device receives, from the second wireless communication device, a communication signal in the second network based on the reference signal configuration of the first network. The reference signal configuration indicates at least one of a frequency tone of a reference signal of the first network, a time period of the reference signal of the first network, or a number of antenna ports associated with the reference signal of the first network.
