Title: PHYSICAL DOWNLINK CONTROL CHANNELS (PDCCH) AND ENHANCED PDDCHS (EPDCCH) IN WIDEBAND COVERAGE ENHANCEMENT (WCE) ARRANGEMENTS
Abstract:
Embodiments of an Evolved Node-B (eNB), User Equipment (UE) and methods for communication are generally described herein. The eNB may encode an enhanced physical downlink control channel (ePDCCH) for transmission in a sub-frame in first physical resource blocks (PRBs). The ePDCCH may indicate: a transmission of a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) in accordance with a wideband coverage enhancement (WCE), and second PRBs to be used for the transmission of the PDSCH. The eNB may encode the PDSCH for transmission. The eNB may configure transceiver circuitry to transmit the PDSCH in a plurality of subframes, wherein transmission of the PDSCH is repeated in each subframe of the plurality of sub-frames in the second PRBs as part of the WCE. The ePDCCH may be transmitted in a starting sub-frame of the plurality in the first PRBs.
