CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A method comprising:

establish a radio resource control (RRC) connection by a user equipment (UE) with a serving base station in an unlicensed network;

receiving a measurement configuration by the UE, wherein the measurement configuration comprises measurement objects for a list of unlicensed new radio (NR-U) channels and WLAN channels;

performing measurements and obtaining measurement results that comprise a reference signal received power (RSRP) and/or a reference signal received quality (RSRQ) , and a channel load metric of a target cell; and

transmitting a measurement report for the measurement results to the base station for handing over the UE to the target cell.

2. The method of Claim 1, wherein the measurement

configuration comprises at least one of a list of frequency band, a list of carrier frequency, a measurement bandwidth, and an identity of a to-be-measured NR-U or WLAN channel.

3. The method of Claim 1, wherein the channel load metric is estimated based on a received signal strength indication (RSSI) or a channel occupancy (CO) of a cell.

4. The method of Claim 1, wherein the channel load metric is estimated based on a WLAN channel utilization for a corresponding WLAN channel.

5. The method of Claim 1, wherein the channel load metric is estimated based on a channel availability of a

corresponding neighboring NR-U cell.

6. The method of Claim 1, wherein UE also receives a report configuration from the base station, wherein the report configuration comprises a WLAN channel utilization of each WLAN channel and a channel availability of each neighboring NR-U cell.

7. The method of Claim 6, wherein the measurement results comprise the WLAN channel utilization and the channel availability that are piggybacked with other measurement results .

8. The method of Claim 6, wherein the measurement report further comprises summary statistics of the unlicensed network, including a highest WLAN channel utilization and a WLAN interference type in a measurement band.

9. The method of Claim 1, wherein both the measurements and reporting are triggered based on channel availability of neighboring NR-U cells.

10. The method of Claim 1, wherein channel availability measurements are included in inter-radio access technology (inter-RAT) measurements for mobility to and from NR-U cells and LTE cells.

11. A User Equipment (UE) , comprising:

a radio resource control (RRC) connection handling circuit that establishes an RRC connection with a serving base station in an unlicensed network;

a receiver that receives a measurement configuration by the UE, wherein the measurement configuration comprises measurement objects for a list of unlicensed new radio (NR-U) channels and WLAN channels;

a measurement circuit that performs measurements and obtaining measurement results that comprise a reference signal received power (RSRP) and/or a reference signal received quality (RSRQ) , and a channel load metric of a target cell; and

a transmitter that transmits a measurement report for the measurement results to the base station for handing over the UE to the target cell.

12. The UE of Claim 11, wherein the measurement

configuration comprises at least one of a list of frequency band, a list of carrier frequency, a measurement bandwidth, and an identity of a to-be-measured NR-U or WLAN channel.

13. The UE of Claim 11, wherein the channel load metric is estimated based on a received signal strength indication (RSSI) or a channel occupancy (CO) of a cell.

14. The UE of Claim 11, wherein the channel load metric is estimated based on a WLAN channel utilization for a

corresponding WLAN channel.

15. The UE of Claim 11, wherein the channel load metric is estimated based on a channel availability of a

corresponding neighboring NR-U cell.
