Claims

1. A method comprising:
a) receiving, by a wireless device, at least one control message from a base station, said at least one control message causing in said wireless device:
i) configuration of a plurality of cells comprising a primary cell and at least one secondary cell;
ii) assignment of each of said at least one secondary cell to a cell group in a plurality of cell groups; and
iii) configuration of transmissions of sounding reference signals (SRSs) on a first cell in said plurality of cells, said first cell being assigned to a first cell group in said plurality of cell groups, said SRSs comprising a first SRS and a second SRS;
b) transmitting, by said wireless device, said first SRS on said first cell in parallel with transmission of at least one of:
i) a first random access preamble in a second cell group different from said first cell group; and
ii) a first uplink data packet on a second cell different from said first cell; and
c) dropping, by said wireless device, said second SRS in a symbol of a subframe if at least one of the following conditions is satisfied:
i) a second random access preamble is transmitted overlapping said symbol in said first cell group;
ii) a second uplink data packet is transmitted overlapping said symbol in said first cell; and
iii) said wireless device has insufficient power to transmit said second SRS in parallel with other uplink transmissions in said plurality of cells.
2. The method of claim 1, wherein:
a) said first random access preamble is transmitted on a random access channel; and
b) said first uplink data packet is transmitted on a data channel.
3. The method of claim 1, wherein said first cell group is one of:
a) a primary cell group comprising a first subset of said plurality of cells, said subset comprising said primary cell; and
b) a secondary cell group comprising a second subset of said at least one secondary cell.
4. The method of claim 1, wherein said first cell group is out of sync when said second random access preamble is transmitted on said first cell group.
5. The method of claim 1, wherein said first uplink data packet is transmitted on said first cell group.
6. The method of claim 1, wherein said SRSs are type zero sounding reference signals.
7. The method of claim 1, wherein said SRSs are configured to be transmitted during a time period.
8. The method of claim 1, wherein said first SRS is transmitted on the last symbol of a first subframe.
9. The method of claim 1, wherein said wireless device has sufficient power to transmit said first SRS in parallel with other uplink transmissions in said plurality of cells.
10. The method of claim 1, wherein said first SRS transmission and an uplink physical control packet transmission in said first cell group coincide in the same subframe.
11. A method comprising:
a) receiving, by a wireless device, at least one control message from a base station, said at least one control message causing in said wireless device:
i) configuration of a plurality of cells comprising a primary cell and at least one secondary cell;
ii) assignment of each of said at least one secondary cell to a cell group in a plurality of cell groups; and
iii) configuration of transmissions of sounding reference signals (SRSs) on a first cell in said plurality of cells, said first cell being assigned to a first cell group in said plurality of cell groups, said SRSs comprising a first SRS and a second SRS;
b) transmitting, by said wireless device, said first SRS on said first cell in parallel with transmission of at least one of:
i) a first random access preamble in a second cell group different from said first cell group; and
ii) a first uplink data packet on a second cell different from said first cell; and
c) dropping, by said wireless device, said second SRS in a symbol of a subframe if at least one of the following conditions is satisfied:
i) a second random access preamble is transmitted overlapping said symbol in said first cell group; and
ii) a second uplink data packet is transmitted overlapping said symbol in said first cell.
12. A method of claim 11, further comprising dropping said second SRS if said wireless device has insufficient power to transmit said second SRS in parallel with other uplink transmissions in said plurality of cells.
13. The method of claim 11, wherein said first cell group is one of:
a) a primary cell group comprising a first subset of said plurality of cells, said subset comprising said primary cell; and
b) a secondary cell group comprising a second subset of said at least one secondary cell.
14. The method of claim 11, wherein said symbol is the last symbol of said subframe.
15. The method of claim 11, wherein said wireless device has sufficient power to transmit said first SRS in parallel with other uplink transmissions in said plurality of cells.
16. A wireless device comprising:
a) one or more communication interfaces;
b) one or more processors; and
c) memory storing instructions that, when executed, cause said wireless device:
i) receive at least one control message from a base station, said at least one control message causing in said wireless device:
(1) configuration of a plurality of cells comprising a primary cell and at least one secondary cell;
(2) assignment of each of said at least one secondary cell to a cell group in a plurality of cell groups; and
(3) configuration of transmissions of sounding reference signals (SRSs) on a first cell in said plurality of cells, said first cell being assigned to a first cell group in said plurality of cell groups, said SRSs comprising a first SRS and a second SRS; and
ii) transmit said first SRS on said first cell in parallel with transmission of at least one of:
(1) a first random access preamble in a second cell group different from said first cell group; and
(2) a first uplink data packet on a second cell different from said first cell; and
iii) drop said second SRS in a symbol of a subframe if at least one of the following conditions is satisfied:
(1) a second random access preamble is transmitted overlapping said symbol in said first cell group; and
(2) a second uplink data packet is transmitted overlapping said symbol in said first cell.
17. The wireless device of claim 16, wherein said first uplink data packet is transmitted on said first cell group.
18. The wireless device of claim 16, wherein said first SRS transmission and an uplink physical control packet transmission in said first cell group coincide in the same subframe.
19. The wireless device of claim 16, wherein said first cell group is out of sync when said second random access preamble is transmitted on said first cell group.
20. The wireless device of claim 16, wherein said first SRS is transmitted on the last symbol of a first subframe.
