Description

Title of Invention : DYNAMIC PHYSICAL UPLINK SHARED CHANNEL CONFIGURATION

[0001]
FIELD OF THE DISCLOSURE
[0002]
Aspects of the present disclosure generally relate to wireless communication, and more particularly to techniques and apparatuses for dynamic physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) configuration.

BACKGROUND

[0003]
Wireless communication systems are widely deployed to provide various telecommunication services such as telephony, video, data, messaging, and broadcasts. Typical wireless communication systems may employ multiple-access technologies capable of supporting communication with multiple users by sharing available system resources (e.g., bandwidth, transmit power, and/or the like) . Examples of such multiple-access technologies include code division multiple access (CDMA) systems, time division multiple access (TDMA) systems, frequency-division multiple access (FDMA) systems, orthogonal frequency-division multiple access (OFDMA) systems, single-carrier frequency-division multiple access (SC-FDMA) systems, time division synchronous code division multiple access (TD-SCDMA) systems, and Long Term Evolution (LTE) . LTE/LTE-Advanced is a set of enhancements to the Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS) mobile standard promulgated by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) .
[0004]
A wireless communication network may include a number of base stations (BSs) that can support communication for a number of user equipment (UEs) . A user equipment (UE) may communicate with abase station (BS) via the downlink and uplink. The downlink (or forward link) refers to the communication link from the BS to the UE, and the uplink (or reverse link) refers to the communication link from the UEto the BS. As will be described in more detail herein, a BS may be referred to as a Node B, a gNB, an access point (AP) , a radio head, a transmit receive point (TRP) , a new radio (NR) BS, a 5G Node B, and/or the like.
[0005]
The above multiple access technologies have been adopted in various telecommunication standards to provide a common protocol that enables different user equipment to communicate on a municipal, national, regional, and even global level. New radio (NR) , which may also be referred to as 5G, is a set of enhancements to the LTE mobile standard promulgated by the Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) . NR is designed to better support mobile broadband Internet access by improving spectral efficiency, lowering costs, improving services, making use of new spectrum, and better integrating with other open standards using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) with a cyclic prefix (CP) (CP-OFDM) on the downlink (DL) , using CP-OFDM and/or SC-FDM (e.g., also known as discrete Fourier transform spread OFDM (DFT-s-OFDM) ) on the uplink (UL) , as well as supporting beamforming, multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) antenna technology, and carrier aggregation. However, as the demand for mobile broadband access continues to increase, there exists a need for further improvements in LTE and NR technologies. Preferably, these improvements should be applicable to other multiple access technologies and the telecommunication standards that employ these technologies.
[0006]

DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0030]
Various aspects of the disclosure are described more fully hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawings. This disclosure may, however, be embodied in many different forms and should not be construed as limited to any specific structure or function presented throughout this disclosure. Rather, these aspects are provided so that this disclosure will be thorough and complete, and will fully convey the scope of the disclosure to those skilled in the art. Based on the teachings herein one skilled in the art should appreciate that the scope of the disclosure is intended to cover any aspect of the disclosure disclosed herein, whether implemented independently of or combined with any other aspect of the disclosure. For example, an apparatus may be implemented or a method may be practiced using any number of the aspects set forth herein. In addition, the scope of the disclosure is intended to cover such an apparatus or method which is practiced using other structure, functionality, or structure and functionality in addition to or other than the various aspects of the disclosure set forth herein. It should be understood that any aspect of the disclosure disclosed herein may be embodied by one or more elements of a claim.
[0031]
Several aspects of telecommunication systems will now be presented with reference to various apparatuses and techniques. These apparatuses and techniques will be described in the following detailed description and illustrated in the accompanying drawings by various blocks, modules, components, circuits, steps, processes, algorithms, and/or the like (collectively referred to as “elements” ) . These elements may be implemented using hardware, software, or combinations thereof. Whether such elements are implemented as hardware or software depends upon the particular application and design constraints imposed on the overall system.
[0032]
It is noted that while aspects may be described herein using terminology commonly associated with 3G and/or 4G wireless technologies, aspects of the present disclosure can be applied in other generation-based communication systems, such as 5G and later, including NR technologies.
[0033]
Fig. 1 is a diagram illustrating a wireless network 100 in which aspects of the present disclosure may be practiced. The wireless network 100 may be an LTE network or some other wireless network, such as a 5G or NR network. The wireless network 100 may include a number of BSs 110 (shown as BS 110a, BS 110b, BS 110c, and BS 110d) and other network entities. A BS is an entity that communicates with user equipment (UEs) and may also be referred to as a base station, a NR BS, a Node B, a gNB, a 5G node B (NB) , an access point, a transmit receive point (TRP) , and/or the like. Each BS may provide communication coverage for a particular geographic area. In 3GPP, the term “cell” can refer to a coverage area of a BS and/or a BS subsystem serving this coverage area, depending on the context in which the term is used.
[0034]
A BS may provide communication coverage for a macro cell, a pico cell, a femto cell, and/or another type of cell. A macro cell may cover a relatively large geographic area (e.g., several kilometers in radius) and may allow unrestricted access by UEs with service subscription. A pico cell may cover a relatively small geographic area and may allow unrestricted access by UEs with service subscription. A femto cell may cover a relatively small geographic area (e.g., a home) and may allow restricted access by UEs having association with the femto cell (e.g., UEs in a closed subscriber group (CSG) ) . A BS for a macro cell may be referred to as a macro BS. A BS for a pico cell may be referred to as a pico BS. A BS for a femto cell may be referred to as a femto BS or a home BS. In the example shown in Fig. 1, a BS 110a may be a macro BS for a macro cell 102a, a BS 110b may be a pico BS for a pico cell 102b, and a BS 110c may be a femto BS for a femto cell 102c. A BS may support one or multiple (e.g., three) cells. The terms “eNB” , “base station” , “NR BS” , “gNB” , “TRP” , “AP” , “node B” , “5G NB” , and “cell” may be used interchangeably herein.
[0035]
In some aspects, a cell may not necessarily be stationary, and the geographic area of the cell may move according to the location of a mobile BS. In some aspects, the BSs may be interconnected to one another and/or to one or more other BSs or network nodes (not shown) in the wireless network 100 through various types of backhaul interfaces such as a direct physical connection, a virtual network, and/or the like using any suitable transport network.
[0036]
Wireless network 100 may also include relay stations. A relay station is an entity that can receive a transmission of data from an upstream station (e.g., a BS or a UE) and send a transmission of the data to a downstream station (e.g., a UE or a BS) . A relay station may also be a UE that can relay transmissions for other UEs. In the example shown in Fig. 1, a relay station 110d may communicate with macro BS 110a and a UE 120d in order to facilitate communication between BS 110a and UE 120d. A relay station may also be referred to as a relay BS, a relay base station, a relay, and/or the like.
[0037]
Wireless network 100 may be a heterogeneous network that includes BSs of different types, e.g., macro BSs, pico BSs, femto BSs, relay BSs, and/or the like. These different types of BSs may have different transmit power levels, different coverage areas, and different impacts on interference in wireless network 100. For example, macro BSs may have a high transmit power level (e.g., 5 to 40 Watts) whereas pico BSs, femto BSs, and relay BSs may have lower transmit power levels (e.g., 0.1 to 2 Watts) .
[0038]
A network controller 130 may couple to a set of BSs and may provide coordination and control for these BSs. Network controller 130 may communicate with the BSs via a backhaul. The BSs may also communicate with one another, e.g., directly or indirectly via a wireless or wireline backhaul.
[0039]
UEs120 (e.g., 120a, 120b, 120c) may be dispersed throughout wireless network 100, and each UE may be stationary or mobile. A UE may also be referred to as an access terminal, a terminal, a mobile station, a subscriber unit, a station, and/or the like. A UE may be a cellular phone (e.g., a smart phone) , a personal digital assistant (PDA) , a wireless modem, a wireless communication device, a handheld device, a laptop computer, a cordless phone, a wireless local loop (WLL) station, a tablet, a camera, a gaming device, a netbook, a smartbook, an ultrabook, a medical device or equipment, biometric sensors/devices, wearable devices (smart watches, smart clothing, smart glasses, smart wrist bands, smart jewelry (e.g., smart ring, smart bracelet) ) , an entertainment device (e.g., a music or video device, or a satellite radio) , a vehicular component or sensor, smart meters/sensors, industrial manufacturing equipment, a global positioning system device, or any other suitable device that is configured to communicate via a wireless or wired medium.
[0040]
Some UEs may be considered machine-type communication (MTC) or evolved or enhanced machine-type communication (eMTC) UEs. MTC and eMTC UEs include, for example, robots, drones, remote devices, sensors, meters, monitors, location tags, and/or the like, that may communicate with a base station, another device (e.g., remote device) , or some other entity. A wireless node may provide, for example, connectivity for or to a network (e.g., a wide area network such as Internet or a cellular network) via a wired or wireless communication link. Some UEs may be considered Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices, and/or may be implemented as NB-IoT (narrowband internet of things) devices. Some UEs may be considered a Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) . UE 120 may be included inside a housing that houses components of UE 120, such as processor components, memory components, and/or the like.
[0041]
In general, any number of wireless networks may be deployed in a given geographic area. Each wireless network may support a particular RAT and may operate on one or more frequencies. A RAT may also be referred to as a radio technology, an air interface, and/or the like. A frequency may also be referred to as a carrier, a frequency channel, and/or the like. Each frequency may support a single RAT in a given geographic area in order to avoid interference between wireless networks of different RATs. In some cases, NR or 5G RAT networks may be deployed.
[0042]
In some aspects, two or more UEs 120 (e.g., shown as UE 120a and UE 120e) may communicate directly using one or more sidelink channels (e.g., without using a base station 110 as an intermediary to communicate with one another) . For example, the UEs 120 may communicate using peer-to-peer (P2P) communications, device-to-device (D2D) communications, a vehicle-to-everything (V2X) protocol (e.g., which may include a vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) protocol, a vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) protocol, and/or the like) , a mesh network, and/or the like. In this case, the UE 120 may perform scheduling operations, resource selection operations, and/or other operations described elsewhere herein as being performed by the base station 110.
[0043]
As indicated above, Fig. 1 is provided as an example. Other examples may differ from what is described with regard to Fig. 1.
[0044]
Fig. 2 shows a block diagram of a design200of base station 110 and UE 120, which may be one of the base stations and one of the UEs in Fig. 1. Base station 110 may be equipped with T antennas 234a through 234t, and UE 120 may be equipped with R antennas 252a through 252r, where in general T ≥ 1 and R ≥ 1.
[0045]
At base station 110, a transmit processor 220 may receive data from a data source 212 for one or more UEs, select one or more modulation and coding schemes (MCS) for each UE based at least in part on channel quality indicators (CQIs) received from the UE, process (e.g., encode and modulate) the data for each UE based at least in part on the MCS (s) selected for the UE, and provide data symbols for all UEs. Transmit processor 220 may also process system information (e.g., for semi-static resource partitioning information (SRPI) and/or the like) and control information (e.g., CQI requests, grants, upper layer signaling, and/or the like) and provide overhead symbols and control symbols. Transmit processor 220 may also generate reference symbols for reference signals (e.g., the cell-specific reference signal (CRS) ) and synchronization signals (e.g., the primary synchronization signal (PSS) and secondary synchronization signal (SSS) ) . A transmit (TX) multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) processor 230 may perform spatial processing (e.g., precoding) on the data symbols, the control symbols, the overhead symbols, and/or the reference symbols, if applicable, and may provide T output symbol streams to T modulators (MODs) 232a through 232t. Each modulator 232 may process a respective output symbol stream (e.g., for OFDM and/or the like) to obtain an output sample stream. Each modulator 232 may further process (e.g., convert to analog, amplify, filter, and upconvert) the output sample stream to obtain a downlink signal. T downlink signals from modulators 232a through 232t may be transmitted via T antennas 234a through 234t, respectively. According to various aspects described in more detail below, the synchronization signals can be generated with location encoding to convey additional information.
[0046]
At UE 120, antennas 252a through 252r may receive the downlink signals from base station 110 and/or other base stations and may provide received signals to demodulators (DEMODs) 254a through 254r, respectively. Each demodulator 254 may condition (e.g., filter, amplify, downconvert, and digitize) a received signal to obtain input samples. Each demodulator 254 may further process the input samples (e.g., for OFDM and/or the like) to obtain received symbols. A MIMO detector 256 may obtain received symbols from all R demodulators 254a through 254r, perform MIMO detection on the received symbols if applicable, and provide detected symbols. A receive processor 258 may process (e.g., demodulate and decode) the detected symbols, provide decoded data for UE 120 to a data sink 260, and provide decoded control information and system information to a controller/processor 280. A channel processor may determine reference signal received power (RSRP) , received signal strength indicator (RSSI) , reference signal received quality (RSRQ) , channel quality indicator (CQI) , and/or the like. In some aspects, one or more components of UE 120 may be included in a housing.
[0047]
On the uplink, at UE 120, a transmit processor 264 may receive and process data from a data source 262 and control information (e.g., for reports comprising RSRP, RSSI, RSRQ, CQI, and/or the like) from controller/processor 280. Transmit processor 264 may also generate reference symbols for one or more reference signals. The symbols from transmit processor 264 may be precoded by a TX MIMO processor 266 if applicable, further processed by modulators 254a through 254r (e.g., for DFT-s-OFDM, CP-OFDM, and/or the like) , and transmitted to base station 110. At base station 110, the uplink signals from UE 120 and other UEs may be received by antennas 234, processed by demodulators 232, detected by a MIMO detector 236 if applicable, and further processed by a receive processor 238 to obtain decoded data and control information sent by UE 120. Receive processor 238 may provide the decoded data to a data sink 239 and the decoded control information to controller/processor 240. Base station 110 may include communication unit 244 and communicate to network controller 130 via communication unit 244. Network controller 130 may include communication unit 294, controller/processor 290, and memory 292.
[0048]
Controller/processor 240 of base station 110, controller/processor 280 of UE 120, and/or any other component (s) of Fig. 2 may perform one or more techniques associated with dynamic physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) configuration, as described in more detail elsewhere herein. For example, controller/processor 240 of base station 110, controller/processor 280 of UE 120, and/or any other component (s) of Fig. 2 may perform or direct operations of, for example, process 1000 of Fig. 10, process 1100 of Fig. 11, and/or other processes as described herein. Memories 242 and 282 may store data and program codes for base station 110 and UE 120, respectively. A scheduler 246 may schedule UEs for data transmission on the downlink and/or uplink.
[0049]
In some aspects, UE 120 may include means for receiving, from a BS 110, a signaling communication that configures a plurality of redundancy version (RV) index, transmit precoder matrix indicator (TPMI) , sounding reference signal (SRS) resource indicator (SRI) , and demodulation reference signal (DMRS) port combinations, means for transmitting, based at least in part on the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, respective physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) communications to the BS 110, and/or the like. In some aspects, such means may include one or more components of UE 120 described in connection with Fig. 2.
[0050]
In some aspects, base station 110 may include means for transmitting, to a UE 120, a signaling communication that configures a plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, means for receiving, based at least in part on the plurality of, RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, respective PUSCH communications from the UE 120, and/or the like. In some aspects, such means may include one or more components of base station 110 described in connection with Fig. 2.
[0051]
As indicated above, Fig. 2 is provided as an example. Other examples may differ from what is described with regard to Fig. 2.
[0052]
Fig. 3A shows an example frame structure 300 for frequency division duplexing (FDD) in a telecommunications system (e.g., NR) . The transmission timeline for each of the downlink and uplink may be partitioned into units of radio frames (sometimes referred to as frames) . Each radio frame may have a predetermined duration (e.g., 10 milliseconds (ms) ) and may be partitioned into a set of Z (Z ≥ 1) subframes (e.g., with indices of 0 through Z-1) . Each subframe may have a predetermined duration (e.g., 1ms) and may include a set of slots (e.g., 2 m slots per subframe are shown in Fig. 3A, where m is a numerology used for a transmission, such as 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, and/or the like) . Each slot may include a set of L symbol periods. For example, each slot may include fourteen symbol periods (e.g., as shown in Fig. 3A) , seven symbol periods, or another number of symbol periods. In a case where the subframe includes two slots (e.g., when m = 1) , the subframe may include 2L symbol periods, where the 2L symbol periods in each subframe may be assigned indices of 0 through 2L-1. In some aspects, a scheduling unit for the FDD may be frame-based, subframe-based, slot-based, symbol-based, and/or the like.
[0053]
While some techniques are described herein in connection with frames, subframes, slots, and/or the like, these techniques may equally apply to other types of wireless communication structures, which may be referred to using terms other than “frame, ” “subframe, ” “slot, ” and/or the like in 5G NR. In some aspects, a wireless communication structure may refer to a periodic time-bounded communication unit defined by a wireless communication standard and/or protocol. Additionally, or alternatively, different configurations of wireless communication structures than those shown in Fig. 3A may be used.
[0054]
In certain telecommunications (e.g., NR) , a base station may transmit synchronization signals. For example, a base station may transmit a primary synchronization signal (PSS) , a secondary synchronization signal (SSS) , and/or the like, on the downlink for each cell supported by the base station. The PSS and SSS may be used by UEs for cell search and acquisition. For example, the PSS may be used by UEs to determine symbol timing, and the SSS may be used by UEs to determine a physical cell identifier, associated with the base station, and frame timing. The base station may also transmit a physical broadcast channel (PBCH) . The PBCH may carry some system information, such as system information that supports initial access by UEs.
[0055]
In some aspects, the base station may transmit the PSS, the SSS, and/or the PBCH in accordance with a synchronization communication hierarchy (e.g., a synchronization signal (SS) hierarchy) including multiple synchronization communications (e.g., SS blocks) , as described below in connection with Fig. 3B.
[0056]
Fig. 3B is a block diagram conceptually illustrating an example SS hierarchy, which is an example of a synchronization communication hierarchy. As shown in Fig. 3B, the SS hierarchy may include an SS burst set, which may include a plurality of SS bursts (identified as SS burst 0 through SS burst B-1, where B is a maximum number of repetitions of the SS burst that may be transmitted by the base station) . As further shown, each SS burst may include one or more SS blocks (identified as SS block 0 through SS block (b max_SS-1) , where b max_SS-1 is a maximum number of SS blocks that can be carried by an SS burst) . In some aspects, different SS blocks may be beam-formed differently. An SS burst set may be periodically transmitted by a wireless node, such as every X milliseconds, as shown in Fig. 3B. In some aspects, an SS burst set may have a fixed or dynamic length, shown as Y milliseconds in Fig. 3B.
[0057]
The SS burst set shown in Fig. 3B is an example of a synchronization communication set, and other synchronization communication sets may be used in connection with the techniques described herein. Furthermore, the SS block shown in Fig. 3B is an example of a synchronization communication, and other synchronization communications may be used in connection with the techniques described herein.
[0058]
In some aspects, an SS block includes resources that carry the PSS, the SSS, the PBCH, and/or other synchronization signals (e.g., a tertiary synchronization signal (TSS) ) and/or synchronization channels. In some aspects, multiple SS blocks are included in an SS burst, and the PSS, the SSS, and/or the PBCH may be the same across each SS block of the SS burst. In some aspects, a single SS block may be included in an SS burst. In some aspects, the SS block may be at least four symbol periods in length, where each symbol carries one or more of the PSS (e.g., occupying one symbol) , the SSS (e.g., occupying one symbol) , and/or the PBCH (e.g., occupying two symbols) .
[0059]
In some aspects, the symbols of an SS block are consecutive, as shown in Fig. 3B. In some aspects, the symbols of an SS block are non-consecutive. Similarly, in some aspects, one or more SS blocks of the SS burst may be transmitted in consecutive radio resources (e.g., consecutive symbol periods) during one or more slots. Additionally, or alternatively, one or more SS blocks of the SS burst may be transmitted in non-consecutive radio resources.
[0060]
In some aspects, the SS bursts may have a burst period, whereby the SS blocks of the SS burst are transmitted by the base station according to the burst period. In other words, the SS blocks may be repeated during each SS burst. In some aspects, the SS burst set may have a burst set periodicity, whereby the SS bursts of the SS burst set are transmitted by the base station according to the fixed burst set periodicity. In other words, the SS bursts may be repeated during each SS burst set.
[0061]
The base station may transmit system information, such as system information blocks (SIBs) on a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) in certain slots. The base station may transmit control information/data on a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) in C symbol periods of a slot, where B may be configurable for each slot. The base station may transmit traffic data and/or other data on the PDSCH in the remaining symbol periods of each slot.
[0062]
As indicated above, Figs. 3A and 3B are provided as examples. Other examples may differ from what is described with regard to Figs. 3A and 3B.
[0063]
Fig. 4 shows an example slot format 410 with a normal cyclic prefix. The available time frequency resources may be partitioned into resource blocks. Each resource block may cover a set of subcarriers (e.g., 12 subcarriers) in one slot and may include a number of resource elements. Each resource element may cover one subcarrier in one symbol period (e.g., in time) and may be used to send one modulation symbol, which may be a real or complex value.
[0064]
An interlace structure may be used for each of the downlink and uplink for FDD in certain telecommunications systems (e.g., NR) . For example, Q interlaces with indices of 0 through Q -1 may be defined, where Q may be equal to 4, 6, 8, 10, or some other value. Each interlace may include slots that are spaced apart by Q frames. In particular, interlace q may include slots q, q + Q, q + 2Q, etc., where q ∈ {0, ..., Q-1} .
[0065]
A UE may be located within the coverage of multiple BSs. One of these BSs may be selected to serve the UE. The serving BS may be selected based at least in part on various criteria such as received signal strength, received signal quality, path loss, and/or the like. Received signal quality may be quantified by a signal-to-noise-and-interference ratio (SINR) , or a reference signal received quality (RSRQ) , or some other metric. The UE may operate in a dominant interference scenario in which the UE may observe high interference from one or more interfering BSs.
[0066]
While aspects of the examples described herein may be associated with NR or 5G technologies, aspects of the present disclosure may be applicable with other wireless communication systems. New radio (NR) may refer to radios configured to operate according to a new air interface (e.g., other than Orthogonal Frequency Divisional Multiple Access (OFDMA) -based air interfaces) or fixed transport layer (e.g., other than Internet Protocol (IP) ) . In aspects, NR may utilize OFDM with a CP (herein referred to as cyclic prefix OFDM or CP-OFDM) and/or SC-FDM on the uplink, may utilize CP-OFDM on the downlink and include support for half-duplex operation using time division duplexing (TDD) . In aspects, NR may, for example, utilize OFDM with a CP (herein referred to as CP-OFDM) and/or discrete Fourier transform spread orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (DFT-s-OFDM) on the uplink, may utilize CP-OFDM on the downlink and include support for half-duplex operation using TDD. NR may include Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB) service targeting wide bandwidth (e.g., 80 megahertz (MHz) and beyond) , millimeter wave (mmW) targeting high carrier frequency (e.g., 60 gigahertz (GHz) ) , massive MTC (mMTC) targeting non- backward compatible MTC techniques, and/or mission critical targeting ultra reliable low latency communications (URLLC) service.
[0067]
In some aspects, a single component carrier bandwidth of 100 MHZ may be supported. NR resource blocks may span 12 sub-carriers with a sub-carrier bandwidth of 60 or 120 kilohertz (kHz) over a 0.1 millisecond (ms) duration. Each radio frame may include 40 slots and may have a length of 10ms. Consequently, each slot may have a length of 0.25 ms. Each slot may indicate a link direction (e.g., DL or UL) for data transmission and the link direction for each slot may be dynamically switched. Each slot may include DL/UL data as well as DL/ULcontrol data.
[0068]
Beamforming may be supported and beam direction may be dynamically configured. MIMO transmissions with precoding may also be supported. MIMO configurations in the DL may support up to 8 transmit antennas with multi-layer DL transmissions up to 8 streams and up to 2 streams per UE. Multi-layer transmissions with up to 2 streams per UE may be supported. Aggregation of multiple cells may be supported with up to 8 serving cells. Alternatively, NR may support a different air interface, other than an OFDM-based interface. NR networks may include entities such central units or distributed units.
[0069]
As indicated above, Fig. 4 is provided as an example. Other examples may differ from what is described with regard to Fig. 4.
[0070]
Fig. 5 illustrates an example logical architecture of a distributed RAN 500, according to aspects of the present disclosure. A 5G access node 506 may include an access node controller (ANC) 502. The ANC may be a central unit (CU) of the distributed RAN 500. The backhaul interface to the next generation core network (NG-CN) 504 may terminate at the ANC. The backhaul interface to neighboring next generation access nodes (NG-ANs) may terminate at the ANC. The ANC may include one or more TRPs 508 (which may also be referred to as BSs, NR BSs, Node Bs, 5G NBs, APs, gNB, or some other term) . As described above, a TRP may be used interchangeably with “cell. ”
[0071]
The TRPs 508 may be a distributed unit (DU) . The TRPs may be connected to one ANC (ANC 502) or more than one ANC (not illustrated) . For example, for RAN sharing, radio as a service (RaaS) , and service specific AND deployments, the TRP may be connected to more than one ANC. A TRP may include one or more antenna ports. The TRPs may be configured to individually (e.g., dynamic selection) or jointly (e.g., joint transmission) serve traffic to a UE.
[0072]
The local architecture of RAN 500 may be used to illustrate fronthaul definition. The architecture may be defined that support fronthauling solutions across different deployment types. For example, the architecture may be based at least in part on transmit network capabilities (e.g., bandwidth, latency, and/or jitter) .
[0073]
The architecture may share features and/or components with LTE. According to aspects, the next generation AN (NG-AN) 510 may support dual connectivity with NR. The NG-AN may share a common fronthaul for LTE and NR.
[0074]
The architecture may enable cooperation between and among TRPs 508. For example, cooperation may be preset within a TRP and/or across TRPs via the ANC 502. According to aspects, no inter-TRP interface may be needed/present.
[0075]
According to aspects, a dynamic configuration of split logical functions may be present within the architecture of RAN 500. The packet data convergence protocol (PDCP) , radio link control (RLC) , media access control (MAC) protocol may be adaptably placed at the ANC or TRP.
[0076]
According to various aspects, a BS may include a central unit (CU) (e.g., ANC 502) and/or one or more distributed units (e.g., one or more TRPs 508) .
[0077]
As indicated above, Fig. 5 is provided as an example. Other examples may differ from what is described with regard to Fig. 5.
[0078]
Fig. 6 illustrates an example physical architecture of a distributed RAN 600, according to aspects of the present disclosure. A centralized core network unit (C-CU) 602 may host core network functions. The C-CU may be centrally deployed. C-CU functionality may be offloaded (e.g., to advanced wireless services (AWS) ) , in an effort to handle peak capacity.
[0079]
A centralized RAN unit (C-RU) 604 may host one or more ANC functions. Optionally, the C-RU may host core network functions locally. The C-RU may have distributed deployment. The C-RU may be closer to the network edge.
[0080]
A distributed unit (DU) 606 may host one or more TRPs. The DU may be located at edges of the network with radio frequency (RF) functionality.
[0081]
As indicated above, Fig. 6 is provided as an example. Other examples may differ from what is described with regard to Fig. 6.
[0082]
Fig. 7 is a diagram 700 showing an example of a DL-centric slot or wireless communication structure. The DL-centric slot may include a control portion 702. The control portion 702 may exist in the initial or beginning portion of the DL-centric slot. The control portion 702 may include various scheduling information and/or control information corresponding to various portions of the DL-centric slot. In some configurations, the control portion 702 may be a physical DL control channel (PDCCH) , as indicated in Fig. 7. In some aspects, the control portion 702 may include legacy PDCCH information, shortened PDCCH (sPDCCH) information) , a control format indicator (CFI) value (e.g., carried on a physical control format indicator channel (PCFICH) ) , one or more grants (e.g., downlink grants, uplink grants, and/or the like) , and/or the like.
[0083]
The DL-centric slot may also include a DL data portion 704. The DL data portion 704 may sometimes be referred to as the payload of the DL-centric slot. The DL data portion 704 may include the communication resources utilized to communicate DL data from the scheduling entity (e.g., UE or BS) to the subordinate entity (e.g., UE) . In some configurations, the DL data portion 704 may be a physical DL shared channel (PDSCH) .
[0084]
The DL-centric slot may also include an UL short burst portion 706. The UL short burst portion 706 may sometimes be referred to as an UL burst, an UL burst portion, a common UL burst, a short burst, an UL short burst, a common UL short burst, a common UL short burst portion, and/or various other suitable terms. In some aspects, the UL short burst portion 706 may include one or more reference signals. Additionally, or alternatively, the UL short burst portion 706 may include feedback information corresponding to various other portions of the DL-centric slot. For example, the UL short burst portion 706 may include feedback information corresponding to the control portion 702 and/or the data portion 704. Non-limiting examples of information that may be included in the UL short burst portion 706 include an ACK signal (e.g., a PUCCH ACK, a PUSCH ACK, an immediate ACK) , a NACK signal (e.g., a PUCCH NACK, a PUSCH NACK, an immediate NACK) , a scheduling request (SR) , a buffer status report (BSR) , a HARQ indicator, a channel state indication (CSI) , a channel quality indicator (CQI) , a sounding reference signal (SRS) , a demodulation reference signal (DMRS) , PUSCH data, and/or various other suitable types of information. The UL short burst portion 706 may include additional or alternative information, such as information pertaining to random access channel (RACH) procedures, scheduling requests, and various other suitable types of information.
[0085]
As illustrated in Fig. 7, the end of the DL data portion 704 may be separated in time from the beginning of the UL short burst portion 706. This time separation may sometimes be referred to as a gap, a guard period, a guard interval, and/or various other suitable terms. This separation provides time for the switch-over from DL communication (e.g., reception operation by the subordinate entity (e.g., UE) ) to UL communication (e.g., transmission by the subordinate entity (e.g., UE) ) . The foregoing is one example of a DL-centric wireless communication structure, and alternative structures having similar features may exist without necessarily deviating from the aspects described herein.
[0086]
As indicated above, Fig. 7 is provided as an example. Other examples may differ from what is described with regard to Fig. 7.
[0087]
Fig. 8 is a diagram 800 showing an example of an UL-centric slot or wireless communication structure. The UL-centric slot may include a control portion 802. The control portion 802 may exist in the initial or beginning portion of the UL-centric slot. The control portion 802 in Fig. 8 may be similar to the control portion 702 described above with reference to Fig. 7. The UL-centric slot may also include an UL long burst portion 804. The UL long burst portion 804 may sometimes be referred to as the payload of the UL-centric slot. The UL portion may refer to the communication resources utilized to communicate UL data from the subordinate entity (e.g., UE) to the scheduling entity (e.g., UE or BS) . In some configurations, the control portion 802 may be a physical DL control channel (PDCCH) .
[0088]
As illustrated in Fig. 8, the end of the control portion 802 may be separated in time from the beginning of the UL long burst portion 804. This time separation may sometimes be referred to as a gap, guard period, guard interval, and/or various other suitable terms. This separation provides time for the switch-over from DL communication (e.g., reception operation by the scheduling entity) to UL communication (e.g., transmission by the scheduling entity) .
[0089]
The UL-centric slot may also include an UL short burst portion 806. The UL short burst portion 806 in Fig. 8 may be similar to the UL short burst portion 706 described above with reference to Fig. 7, and may include any of the information described above in connection with Fig. 7. The foregoing is one example of an UL-centric wireless communication structure, and alternative structures having similar features may exist without necessarily deviating from the aspects described herein.
[0090]
In some circumstances, two or more subordinate entities (e.g., UEs) may communicate with each other using sidelink signals. Real-world applications of such sidelink communications may include public safety, proximity services, UE-to-network relaying, vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications, Internet of Everything (IoE) communications, IoT communications, mission-critical mesh, and/or various other suitable applications. Generally, a sidelink signal may refer to a signal communicated from one subordinate entity (e.g., UE1) to another subordinate entity (e.g., UE2) without relaying that communication through the scheduling entity (e.g., UE or BS) , even though the scheduling entity may be utilized for scheduling and/or control purposes. In some aspects, the sidelink signals may be communicated using a licensed spectrum (unlike wireless local area networks, which typically use an unlicensed spectrum) .
[0091]
In one example, a wireless communication structure, such as a frame, may include both UL-centric slots and DL-centric slots. In this example, the ratio of UL-centric slots to DL-centric slots in a frame may be dynamically adjusted based at least in part on the amount of UL data and the amount of DL data that are transmitted. For example, if there is more UL data, then the ratio of UL-centric slots to DL-centric slots may be increased. Conversely, if there is more DL data, then the ratio of UL-centric slots to DL-centric slots may be decreased.
[0092]
As indicated above, Fig. 8 is provided as an example. Other examples may differ from what is described with regard to Fig. 8.
[0093]
In a wireless network, a UE may communicate with a BS by transmitting a PUSCH communication on an uplink of a wireless communication link between the UE and the BS. The BS may configure one or more parameters for transmitting the PUSCH communication on the uplink. In some cases, the BS may configure the one or more parameters by transmitting a PUSCH configured grant to the UE. The PUSCH configured grant may include a Type-1 PUSCH configured grant or a Type-2 PUSCH configured grant. A Type-1 PUSCH configured grant may include a PUSCH configured grant that is configured and activated via radio resource control (RRC) signaling. A Type-2 PUSCH configured grant may include a PUSCH configured grant that is configured via RRC signaling and activated via downlink control information (DCI) signaling.
[0094]
To establish the PUSCH configured grant, the BS may configure the UE (e.g., via a master information block (MIB) , a system information block (SIB) , and/or the like) with a sounding reference signal (SRS) set that indicates time and frequency resources for transmitting a plurality of SRSs to the BS. The BS may receive and perform one or more measurements associated with the plurality of SRSs to determine the one or more parameters for the PUSCH configured grant.
[0095]
For example, the BS may identify, based at least in part on the one or more measurements of the plurality of SRSs, the time and frequency resources that the UE is to use to transmit PUSCH communications on the uplink, and may indicate, in the PUSCH configured grant, an SRS resource indicator (SRI) associated with the time and frequency resources. If the PUSCH communications are to be transmitted using a codebook-based transmission, the BS may also indicate, in the PUSCH configured grant, a transmit precoding matrix indicator (TPMI) associated with a precoder that the UE is to use to transmit the PUSCH communications. The BS may further associate, in the PUSCH configured grant, the TPMI and SRI with a demodulation reference signal (DMRS) port. The DMRS port may be an antenna port to which an uplink DMRS, transmitted from the UE, is mapped.
[0096]
In some cases, the UE may be a multi-panel device that is capable of communicating with the BS using millimeter wave (mmWave) transmission (e.g., using frequencies above 24 GHz) . In this case, the UE may be equipped with a plurality of antenna panels that are comprised of a plurality of antenna components (e.g., 16 antenna component, 32 antenna components, and/or the like) . While the UE may be capable of transmitting using the plurality of antenna panels, the UE may be unable to synchronize the phase between the plurality of antenna panels, and therefore may not be capable of transmitting coherent streams using the plurality of antenna panels. As a result, the UE may be capable of using a PUSCH configured grant for only one antenna panel while other antenna panels remain unused. This negates the increases to transmit diversity, throughput, and multiple input multiple output (MIMO) functionality that is enabled by multi-panel communication.
[0097]
Some aspects, described herein, provide techniques and apparatuses for dynamic PUSCH configuration. In some aspects, a BS may transmit, to a UE, PUSCH configured grant that enables the UE to transmit using a plurality of TPMI, SRS, and DMRS port combinations. The PUSCH configured grant may be included in a signaling communication that configures a plurality of redundancy version (RV) index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations. In this way, the UE may use respective RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, of the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, to transmit using multi-panel, to transmit multiple data streams, and/or the like, which increases transmit diversity, throughput, and MIMO functionality at the UE.
[0098]
Figs. 9A-9C are diagrams illustrating an example 900 of dynamic PUSCH configuration, in accordance with various aspects of the present disclosure. As shown in Figs. 9A-9C, example 900 may include a BS (e.g., BS 110) and a UE (e.g., UE 120) . In some aspects, BS 110 and UE 120 may be included in a wireless network. BS 110 and UE 120 may be communicatively connected and may communicate via a wireless communication link. The wireless communication link may include a downlink (e.g., a link that permits communication from BS 110 to UE 120) and an uplink (e.g., a link that permits communication from UE 120 to BS 110.
[0099]
In some aspects, BS 110 may configure one or more parameters for UE 120 to transmit PUSCH communications on the uplink. In some aspects, BS 110 may configure the one or more parameters based at least in part on receiving a scheduling request (SR) communication from UE 120, based at least in part on detecting one or more SRSs transmitted from UE 120, and/or the like.
[0100]
As shown in Fig. 9A, and by reference number 902, BS 110 may transmit, to UE 120, a signaling communication that configures the one or more parameters. The signaling communication maybe a PUSCH configured grant, which mayinclude an RRC communication, a DCI communication, and/or the like. In some aspects, the one or more parameters may include an RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination. In some aspects, the one or more parameters may include a plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations.
[0101]
In some aspects, BS 110 may select the SRIs by performing one or more channel quality measurements associated with the one or more SRSs transmitted from UE 120 in order to determine a channel quality for each respective portion of the uplink associated with the one or more SRSs. In some aspects, BS 110 may select the SRIs associated with the uplink resources on which the highest channel quality measurements were obtained. In some aspects, BS 110 may select the SRIs associated with uplink resources on which channel quality measurements that satisfy a channel quality threshold were obtained. BS 110 may further select the TPMIs and DMRS ports that are associated with the selected SRIs.
[0102]
In some aspects, BS 110 may associate an RV index with respective combinations of TPMIs, SRIs, and DMRS ports to form the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations. For example, a first RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination may include a first RV index, a first TPMI, a first SRI, and a first DMRS port; a second RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination may include a second RV index, a second TPMI, a second SRI, and a second DMRS port; and so on. In some aspects, each RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination may include a different RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port. In some aspects, one or more RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations may include a same RV index, TPMI, SRI, and/or DMRS port as one or more other RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations.
[0103]
In some aspects, an RV index may be used to identify a particular RV that is to be used to transmit a plurality of iterations of a PUSCH communication. A RV may specify a rate matching procedure, that is, may specify the position of bits that are punctured or repeated in an iteration of a PUSCH communication. At UE 120, de-rate matching according to the RV may allow for de-puncturing (i.e., the introduction of bit erasures at the correct positions) or accumulation of the repeated bits. In some aspects, each iteration of a PUSCH communication mayuse an RV that differs from an RV that was used for other iterations of the PUSCH communication.
[0104]
In some aspects, BS 110 may explicitly indicate, in the signaling communication, the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations. That is, the signaling communication may include information identifying each RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port included in the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations. For example, each RV index and DMRS port may be explicitly specified, each TPMI may be explicitly indicated by a TPMI index, and each SRI may be explicitly indicated by an SRI index.
[0105]
In some aspects, the signaling communication may implicitly indicate the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations. For example, sets of TPMIs included in the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations may be associated with respective TPMI group identifiers, and BS 110 may specify the TPMI group identifiers in the signaling communication. In this case, UE 120 may identify the TPMI group identifiers in the signaling communication, and may perform a lookup in a table and/or another data structure to identify the sets of TPMIs, included in the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, based at least in part on the TPMI group identifiers. In some aspects, the RV indices, SRIs, and DMRS ports associated with the TPMIs, included in the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, may also be indicated in the table and/or other data structure. In some aspects, the RV indices, SRIs, and DMRS ports that are associated with the TPMIs, included in the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, may be explicitly indicated in the signaling communication.
[0106]
In some aspects, BS 110 may transmit a plurality of signaling communications to configure the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations and/or the TPMI group identifiers. As an example, each signaling communication, of the plurality of signaling communications, may configure a respective RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination of the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations and/or respective TPMI group identifiers. As another example, some signaling communications, of the plurality of signaling communications may respectively configure a single RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination and/or TPMI group identifier, while other signaling communications, of the plurality of signaling communications, may respectively configure multiple RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations and/or multiple TPMI group identifiers.
[0107]
As further shown in Fig. 9A, and by reference number 904, UE 120 may receive the signaling communication and may transmit one or more PUSCH communication based at least in part on the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination or the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations indicated in the signaling communication. In some aspects, UE 120 may indicate (e.g., explicitly or implicitly) , in a PUSCH communication, the RV index that was used to transmit the PUSCH communication.
[0108]
In some aspects, UE 120 may identify the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination or the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations by identifying an explicit indication in the signaling communication, by identifying an implicit indication and performing a lookup, and/or the like.
[0109]
In some aspects, if the signaling communication indicates an RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, UE 120 may transmit the one or more PUSCH communications by identifying a codebook associated with the TPMI, precoding the one or more PUSCH communications based at least in part on the codebook, performing rate matching of the one or more PUSCH communications based at least in part on the RV associated with the RV index, and transmitting the one or more PUSCH communications using the uplink radio resources associated with the SRI. Moreover, UE 120 may transmit a DMRS based at least in part on the DMRS port indicated in the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination.
[0110]
In some aspects, if the signaling communication indicates a plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, UE 120 may transmit the one or more PUSCH communications using the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations. In some aspects, UE 120 may use the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations to transmit respective iterations of a PUSCH communication, may use the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations to transmit respective PUSCH communications, and/or the like.
[0111]
In some aspects, UE 120 may transmit the respective iterations of the PUSCH communication, and/or the respective PUSCH communications, using a plurality of antenna panels. For example, UE 120 may use the plurality of antenna panels in a non-coherent manner (e.g., such that the transmission of the respective iterations of the PUSCH communication, and/or the respective PUSCH communications, are not phase synchronized) . As another example, UE 120 may use the plurality of antenna panels in a coherent manner (e.g., such that the transmission of the respective iterations of the PUSCH communication, and/or the respective PUSCH communications, are phase synchronized) .
[0112]
In some aspects, UE 120 may use the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations in a non-cycled manner or in a cycled manner. For example, if UE 120 transmits the one or more PUSCH communications using the plurality of plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations in a non-cycled manner, UE 120 may transmit PUSCH communications using the same RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, of the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, until instructed (e.g., by BS 110) to switch to another RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination of the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations.
[0113]
As another example, if UE 120 transmits the one or more PUSCH communications using the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations in a cycled manner, UE 120 may transmit a plurality of PUSCH communications using respective RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination. In this case, UE 120 may transmit a first PUSCH communication using a first RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, may transmit a second PUSCH communication using a second RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, and so on.
[0114]
In some aspects, the cycling order (i.e., the order in which UE 120 is to cycle through the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations) may be specified in the first signaling communication. In some aspects, the cycling order may be specified in a table or another data structure configured at UE 120. In some aspects, the cycling order may be specified in a telecommunications standard that is implemented in the wireless network. In some aspects, BS 110 may transmit, in the signaling communication, a plurality of candidate cycling orders, and may periodically select the cycling order, from the plurality of candidate cycling orders, that UE 120 is to use to cycle through the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations.
[0115]
In some aspects, UE 120 may use a hybrid cycling technique to transmit PUSCH communications using the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations. For example, if sets of TPMIs, included in the plurality ofRV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, are included in respective TPMI groups, UE 120 may transmit PUSCH communications by cycling through the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations included in a first TPMI group, and may switch to a second TPMI group based at least in part on receiving an instruction to switch to the second TPMI group.
[0116]
In some aspects, the signaling communication, a table or other data structure, and/or the like, may specify a cycling order for TPMI groups associated with the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations. In some aspects, BS 110 may transmit, in the signaling communication, a plurality of candidate cycling orders, and may periodically select the cycling order, from the plurality of candidate cycling orders, that UE 120 is to use to cycle through the TPMI groups.
[0117]
Turning to Fig. 9B, in some aspects, BS 110 may instruct UE 120 to switch to another RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, another TPMI group, and/or another cycling order. As shown by reference number 904, BS 110 may transmit another signaling communication (e.g., another RRC communication, another DCI communication, and/or the like) that selects an RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, a TPMI group, and/or cycling order to which UE 120 is to switch. In this way, if the signaling communication indicated an RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, BS 110 may permit UE 120 to switch to another RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination. Moreover, in this way, if the signaling communication indicated a plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations (or TPMI groups associated with the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations) , and UE 120 is to use the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations in a non-cycled manner, BS 110 may select the next RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination (and/or TPMI group) , of the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, that UE 120 is to use to transmit PUSCH communications. Moreover, in this way, if the signaling communication indicated a plurality of candidate cycling orders, BS 110 may select a cycling order from the plurality of candidate cycling orders.
[0118]
In some aspects, the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, the TPMI group, and/or the cycling order, may be explicitly indicated in the other signaling communication, may be implicitly indicated by the other signaling communication, or may be indicated by a combination of explicit and implicit indications. For example, the TPMI may be implicitly indicated by a TPMI index, which UE 120 may use to perform a lookup (e.g., in a table or another data structure) , and the SRI, the DMRS port, and/or the RV indexmay be explicitly indicated in the other signaling communication.
[0119]
In some aspects, the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, the TPMI group, and/or the cycling order may be indicated in the other signaling communication along with information directed to one or more other UEs. In this case, BS 110 may scramble the other signaling communication using a group common radio network temporary identifier (GC-RNTI) associated with UE 120 and the one or more other UEs to direct the other signaling communication to UE 120 and the one or more other UEs. In this way, only UE 120 and the one or more other UEs are capable of descrambling and reading the other signaling communication.
[0120]
Moreover, BS 110 may locate, in the other signaling communication, the indication of the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, the TPMI group, and/or the cycling order based at least in part on a search offset. The search offset may indicate a location, in the other signaling communication, relative to a beginning of the other signaling communication. In this way, UE 120 may use the search offset to identify the indication of the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, the TPMI group, and/or the cycling order in the other signaling communication. In some aspects, UE 120 may be configured with information identifying the search offset. In some aspects, BS 110 may indicate the search offset to UE 120 in the signaling communication and/or another communication.
[0121]
As further shown in Fig. 9B, and by reference number 906, UE 120 may receive the other signaling communication and may switch to the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, the TPMI group, and/or the cycling order indicated by the other signaling communication. In this case, UE 120 may use the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, the TPMI group, and/or the cycling order indicated by the other signaling communication, to transmit one or more PUSCH communications.
[0122]
In some aspects, UE 120 may identify the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, the TPMI group, and/or the cycling order in the other signaling communication by descrambling the other signaling communication based at least in part on the GC-RNTI and identifying the location of the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination, the TPMI group, and/or the cycling order based at least in part on the search offset.
[0123]
Turning to Fig. 9C, in some aspects, BS 110 may provide RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination updates to UE 120. For example, BS 110 may update a RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination by associating a different SRI, a different DMRS port, and/or a different RV indexwith the TPMI included in the RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combination. As another example, BS 110 may update the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations by removing RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations from the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, by adding RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations to the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, by specifying another plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, and/or the like. As a further example, BS 110 may update a cycling order associated with one or more RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations (or associated with TPMI groups) of the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations.
[0124]
As shown by reference number 908, BS 110 may transmit another signaling communication that indicates an update to one or more RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, to a TPMI group, and/or to a cycling order. In some aspects, the other signaling communication may include another RRC communication, another DCI communication, and/or the like. In some aspects, the other signaling communication may schedule a retransmission of a PUSCH communication. In some aspects, the other signaling communication may include a PUSCH ACK (e.g., an indication that a PUSCH communication was successfully received and decoded) .
[0125]
In some aspects, the update may be indicated in the other signaling communication along with updates directed to one or more other UEs. In this case, BS 110 may scramble the other signaling communication using the GC-RNTI associated with UE 120 and the one or more other UEs to direct the other signaling communication to UE 120 and the one or more other UEs. In this way, only UE 120 and the one or more other UEs are capable of descrambling and reading the other signaling communication. Moreover, BS 110 may locate, in the other signaling communication, the indication of the update based at least in part on a search offset. The search offset may indicate a location, in the other signaling communication, relative to a beginning of the other signaling communication. In this way, UE 120 may use the search offset to identify the indication of the update in the other signaling communication.
[0126]
As further shown in Fig. 9C, and by reference number 910, UE 120 may receive the other signaling communication and may transmit one or more PUSCH communications based at least in part on the update indicated by the other signaling communication. In this case, UE 120 may use the updated one or more RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, the updated TPMI group, and/or the updated cycling order indicated by the other signaling communication to transmit the one or more PUSCH communications, to perform the scheduled retransmission of the PUSCH communication, and/or the like. In some aspects, UE 120 may identify the update in the other signaling communication by descrambling the other signaling communication based at least in part on the GC-RNTI and by identifying the location of the update based at least in part on the search offset.
[0127]
In this way, BS 110 may transmit, to UE 120, a PUSCH configured grant that enables UE 120 to transmit using a plurality of TPMI, SRS, and DMRS port combinations. The PUSCH configured grant may be included in a signaling communication that configures a plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations. In this way, UE 120 may use respective RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, of the plurality of RV index, TPMI, SRI, and DMRS port combinations, to transmit using multi-panel, to transmit multiple data streams, and/or the like, which increases transmit diversity, throughput, and MIMO functionality at UE 120.
