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

A first apparatus may transmit, to a user equipment (UE), on a control channel, one or more indications of one or more beam indexes corresponding to one or more beams. The first apparatus may transmit, to the UE, one or more reference signals through the one or more beams corresponding to the one or more beam indexes. The reference signals may be used by the UE to select a best subarray and/or receive combiner for communication with the first apparatus.
