Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0049739A2] A method is disclosed for operating a wireless telecommunications system. The method has a first step of (A) synchronously multiplexing a downlink communication frequency between transmissions of a plurality of base stations such that each base station transmits continuously for a plurality of consecutive time slot periods; and a second step of (B) receiving the transmission from at least one of the plurality of base stations with a mobile station, and transmitting an uplink transmission to one of the base stations from the mobile station during a time when the base station is not transmitting. The downlink transmission from each of the plurality of base stations includes a Broadcast Control Channel (BCCH) signal. The method includes a further step of multiplexing random access uplink transmissions to the plurality of base stations so as to reduce latency. The step (A) of synchronously multiplexing preferably includes a step of inserting a guardtime period between transmissions of different ones of the plurality of base stations.
