    Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD



    [0001] The present invention relates to communication technologies, and in particular, to a method and an apparatus for semi-persistent scheduling SPS.

    BACKGROUND



    [0002] In a Long Term Evolution (LTE, Long Term Evolution) communication system, semi-persistent scheduling (SPS, Semi-Persistent Scheduling) allows a radio resource to be configured in a semi-persistent manner and periodically allocates the resource to specified user equipment (UE, User Equipment). Semi-persistent scheduling applies to a service that needs to be periodically scheduled, for example, a voice service.

    [0003] US 2014/0023008 A1 discloses a method for establishing a device-to-device link connection and scheduling for device-to-device communication and terminal relaying, including the following steps: receiving information on the establishment of a D2D link; reporting a state of a D2D buffer of the D2D link to a base station; and receiving information on the D2D link resource allocation based on the report on the D2D buffer state.

    [0004] In the known solution, a base station schedules, in an SPS manner, UE to send voice data. When the UE requests to transmit the voice data, the base station allocates an SPS resource to the UE. After transmission of the voice data of the UE ends, the UE sends a padding padding message to the base station through the SPS resource. When a quantity of times that the base station receives the padding message sent by the UE is greater than or equal to a preset quantity of times, the base station determines that the transmission of the voice data of the UE ends and releases the SPS resource allocated to the UE.

    [0005] However, in a device-to-device (D2D, Device to Device) communication scenario, using an SPS method in the known solution leads to waste of resources.

    SUMMARY



    [0006] Embodiments of the present invention provide a method and a base station for semi-persistent scheduling SPS. The above-mentioned problem is solved by the subject matter of the independent claims. Thus, the invention is defined by the independent claims and further implementation forms are provided in the dependent claims.

    DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS



    [0008] To make the objectives, technical solutions, and advantages of the embodiments of the present invention clearer, the following clearly and completely describes the technical solutions in the embodiments of the present invention with reference to the accompanying drawings in the embodiments of the present invention. Apparently, the described embodiments are some but not all of the embodiments of the present invention. All other embodiments obtained by a person of ordinary skill in the art based on the embodiments of the present invention without creative efforts shall fall within the protection scope of the present invention.

    [0009] FIG. 1 is a flowchart of Embodiment 1 of a method for semi-persistent scheduling SPS according to the present invention. As shown in FIG. 1, the method in this embodiment includes:

    [0010] Step 101. First user equipment interacts with a base station to obtain an SPS resource allocated by the base station.

    [0011] Step 102. The first user equipment performs device-to-device D2D communication with second user equipment by using the SPS resource.

    [0012] Step 103. After the D2D communication ends, the first user equipment sends a release indication message to the base station, so that the base station releases the SPS resource.

    [0013] In the known solution, after UE obtains an SPS resource allocated by a base station, the UE sends a padding message to the base station, to notify the base station that the UE no longer needs to use the SPS resource, so that the base station can release the SPS resource allocated to the UE. In the present invention, after D2D communication ends, first user equipment sends a release indication message to a base station, so that the base station releases an SPS resource.

    [0014] In the known solution, after first user equipment obtains an SPS resource allocated by a base station, the first user equipment sends a padding message to the base station, to notify the base station that the first user equipment no longer needs to use the SPS resource, so that the base station can release the SPS resource allocated to the first user equipment. Therefore, if the first user equipment uses the SPS resource allocated by the base station to perform D2D communication with second user equipment, after the D2D communication ends, the first user equipment sends a padding message to the second user equipment and the base station cannot receive the padding message sent by the first user equipment. As a result, the base station cannot release the SPS resource, causing waste of resources. In the present invention, after D2D communication ends, first user equipment sends a release indication message to a base station, so that the base station releases an SPS resource, preventing waste of resources.

    [0015] FIG. 2 is a flowchart of Embodiment 2 of a method for semi-persistent scheduling SPS according to the present invention. As shown in FIG. 2, the method in this embodiment includes:

    [0016] Step 201. A base station interacts with first user equipment to allocate the first user equipment an SPS resource, so that the first user equipment performs device-to-device D2D communication with second user equipment by using the SPS resource.

    [0017] Step 202. The base station receives a release indication message that is sent by the first user equipment after the D2D communication ends, and releases the SPS resource.

    [0018] In the known solution, after a base station allocates UE an SPS resource, the base station learns that the UE no longer needs to use the SPS resource if the base station receives a padding message sent by the UE, and therefore releases the SPS resource allocated to the UE. In the present invention, a base station releases an SPS resource if the base station receives a release indication message sent by first user equipment after D2D communication ends.

    [0019] In the known solution, after a base station allocates first user equipment an SPS resource, the base stations learns that the first user equipment no longer needs to use the SPS resource if the base station receives a padding message sent by the first user equipment, and therefore releases the SPS resource allocated to the first user equipment. Therefore, if the first user equipment uses the SPS resource allocated by the base station to perform D2D communication with second user equipment, after the D2D communication ends, the first user equipment sends a padding message to the second user equipment and the base station cannot receive the padding message sent by the first user equipment. As a result, the base station cannot release the SPS resource, causing waste of resources. In the present invention, a base station receives a release indication message sent by first user equipment after D2D communication ends, so that the base station releases an SPS resource, preventing waste of resources.

    [0020] FIG. 3 is a flowchart of Embodiment 3 of a method for semi-persistent scheduling SPS according to the present invention. As shown in FIG. 3, the method in this embodiment may include:

    [0021] Step 301. A base station sends a D2D resource configuration message to first user equipment, where the D2D resource configuration message includes a configuration of a D2D-dedicated SR resource.

    [0022] The D2D-dedicated SR resource includes a physical uplink control channel (PUCCH, Physical Uplink Control Channel) resource or a physical random access channel (PRACH, Physical Random Access Channel) resource.

    [0023] Step 302. The first user equipment receives the D2D resource configuration message sent by the base station and sends a D2D SR message to the base station by using the D2D-dedicated SR resource.

    [0024] Specifically, the first user equipment receives the D2D resource configuration message sent by the base station, obtains the configuration of the D2D-dedicated SR resource, and sends the D2D SR message to the base station by using the D2D-dedicated SR resource when only D2D data transmission exists.

    [0025] The D2D SR message has same content as an SR message in the known solution but is carried by a different resource, that is, the D2D SR message is carried by the D2D-dedicated SR resource.

    [0026] It should be noted that, when the first user equipment needs to transmit cellular data, the first user equipment does not send the D2D SR message to the base station by using the D2D-dedicated SR resource.

    [0027] Step 303. The base station receives the D2D SR message sent by the first user equipment by using the D2D-dedicated SR resource, and allocates the first user equipment a resource for sending a D2D BSR.

    [0028] Specifically, when the base station receives the D2D SR message sent by the first user equipment by using the D2D-dedicated SR resource, it indicates that the first user equipment performs only D2D data transmission, and the base station allocates the first user equipment the resource for sending a D2D BSR.

    [0029] In the known solution, when a base station receives an SR message sent by UE, even if the SR message sent by the UE is an SR message sent when only D2D data transmission exists, because the base station cannot determine whether the UE needs to send cellular data or D2D data, the base station allocates the UE a resource according to a preset value. Because the preset value may be greater than a resource actually occupied by a D2D BSR message, waste of resources may occur. In the present invention, when receiving a D2D SR message sent by first user equipment by using a D2D-dedicated SR resource, a base station may determine that the UE needs to send D2D data, and therefore allocates the first user equipment a resource for sending a D2D BSR. A size of the allocated resource may match a resource actually occupied by a D2D BSR message, thereby preventing waste of resources.

    [0030] Step 304. The first user equipment sends a D2D BSR message to the base station by using the resource for sending a D2D BSR.

    [0031] Step 305. The base station receives the D2D BSR message sent by the first user equipment by using the resource for sending a D2D BSR, and allocates the first user equipment an SPS resource.

    [0032] Optionally, when the base station determines, according to a logical channel group ID in the D2D BSR message sent by the first user equipment, that voice data is waiting to be transmitted by the first user equipment, the base station activates an SPS configuration of the first user equipment and allocates the first user equipment the SPS resource.

    [0033] Step 306. The first user equipment performs device-to-device D2D communication with second user equipment by using the SPS resource.

    [0034] Step 307. After the D2D communication ends, the first user equipment sends a release indication message to the base station.

    [0035] Optionally, the release indication message includes a media access control (MAC, Media Access Control) layer message and a radio resource management (RRC, Radio Resource Control) layer message.

    [0036] Optionally, the release indication message is carried in a control element of the MAC layer message; or the release indication message is carried in a subpackage header of the MAC layer message, where the MAC-layer control element includes a MAC-layer BSR.

    [0037] Optionally, the release indication message includes at least one of the following content: an identifier indicating whether to release the SPS resource, whether the identifier is a D2D communication identifier, and a serial number of the SPS resource to be released.

    [0038] Step 308. The base station receives the release indication message sent by the first user equipment, and releases the SPS resource.

    [0039] Optionally, before step 308, the method may further include: the first user equipment detects whether there is data to be sent; and when it is determined that a quantity of times that it is detected that there is no data to be sent is greater than or equal to a first threshold, the first user equipment sends release indication information to the base station; or when a quantity of times that the first user equipment sends a padding message to the second user equipment is greater than or equal to a first threshold, the first user equipment sends release indication information to the base station.

    [0040] The first threshold may be preset by a user or configured on the base station.

    [0041] Optionally, the D2D resource configuration message in step 301 may further include a configuration of a D2D SPS release indication resource, so that the first user equipment sends the release indication information to the base station by using the D2D SPS release indication resource.

    [0042] The D2D SPS release indication resource may be a PUCCH resource or a PRACH resource.

    [0043] Optionally, the D2D resource configuration message in step 301 may further include the first threshold.

    [0044] When receiving the D2D SR message sent by the first user equipment by using the D2D-dedicated SR resource, the base station allocates the first user equipment a resource for sending an identifier of a communication group to which the first user equipment belongs; the first user equipment sends the identifier of the communication group to which the first user equipment belongs by using the resource for sending the identifier of the communication group; the base station receives a message that indicates the identifier of the communication group to which the first user equipment belongs and that is sent by the first user equipment by using the resource for sending the identifier of the communication group, determines to allocate the first user equipment the SPS resource, and optionally determine a location of the SPS resource.

    [0045] An identifier of a communication group to which UE belongs determines information about the communication group to which the UE belongs (for example, a first police group and a first fire fighting group). The base station may allocate resources at different positions according to different communication group identifiers, thereby preventing data collision between communication group members.

    [0046] In this embodiment of the present invention, a base station receives a D2D SR message sent by first user equipment by using a D2D-dedicated SR resource and allocates the first user equipment a resource for sending a D2D BSR, so that a size of the resource that is for sending a BSR and allocated by the base station is a size of a resource actually occupied by the D2D BSR, further preventing waste of resources.
