Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR BEAM MANAGEMENT
Abstract
(EN)

A first apparatus may communicate with a user equipment (UE) through an active beam. The first apparatus may transmit, to the UE, information indicating a periodicity at which control information is to be communicated on a control channel through a control-information beam. The first apparatus may communicate, with the UE, the control information on the control channel through the control-information beam at the periodicity. Further, the first apparatus may receive a request to change the active beam, which may indicate a beam index corresponding to a second beam, and the first apparatus may change the active beam to the second beam corresponding to the beam index indicated by the request.
