Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] The present invention relates to the field of mobile communications technologies, and in particular, to a polar code hybrid automatic repeat request method and an apparatus.

BACKGROUND



[0002] In a communications system, data transmission reliability is usually improved by means of channel encoding, to ensure communication quality. Polar code (polar code) is an encoding technology to which increasing attention is paid, where a composite channel is constructed and a feature of an original channel is changed, so that a capacity of the composite channel is more polarized. Because of such a feature, by means of appropriate encoding design, the polar code technology may be suitable to an original channel that is randomly distributed, and good performance may be achieved and a channel capacity may be approached in many different channel implementations. In addition, the polar code technology can greatly reduce complexity of a receiver by means of interference cancellation decoding, facilitating implementation of the receiver.

[0003] To improve communication performance, a hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ, hybrid automatic repeat request) technology may be used. The HARQ is a technology formed by combining forward error correction coding and automatic repeat request, and can efficiently compensate for bit errors caused by link adaptation, thereby improving a data transmission rate and reducing a data transmission delay.

[0004] However, the feature of the polar code technology is different from that of another existing encoding manner. There are apparent differences in transmission quality of input bits and differences in functions of output bits. Therefore, an encoding capability of a polar code cannot be fully used if the existing HARQ technology is used, resulting in poor HARQ performance.

[0005] The paper 'An adaptive hybrid ARQ algorithm for radio channels' by Shacham N., et al (International conference on communications, New York, IEEE, US, Vol, 3, June 23, 1985, pages 1390-1394) describes a HARQ algorithm after receiving a negative acknowledgement.

[0006] The paper 'A practical approach to polar codes' by Eslami A, et. Al (2011 IEEE International SYMPOSIUM on INFORMATION THEORY PROCEEDINGS, St. Petersburg, Russia, 2011-7-31, pages 16-20) describes a concatenated polar codes and rate-compatible polar codes.

[0007] The paper 'A hybrid ARQ scheme based on polar codes' by Chen Kai, et.al (IEEE Communications Letters, Voll7, No.10, Oct 1, 2013, pages 1996-1999) describes a chase combining HARQ scheme with polar coes.

[0008] The paper 'Polar coded HARQ scheme with chase combining' by Chen Kai, et.al (2014 IEEE Wireless Communications and Networking Conference (WCNC), IEEE, April 6 2014, pages 474-479) describes a chase combining HARQ scheme based on a novel class of rate-compatible polar codes.

SUMMARY



[0009] The present invention discloses a polar code hybrid automatic repeat request method and an apparatus, so as to resolve a problem that an existing hybrid automatic repeat request technology fails to fully use an encoding capability of a polar code.

[0010] According to the present invention, the above objects are solved by the claimed matter according to the independent claims.

[0011] Based on the foregoing technical solutions, the polar code hybrid automatic repeat request method and the apparatus that are provided in the embodiments of the present invention can fully use an encoding capability of a polar code, thereby achieving hybrid automatic repeat request performance.

DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS



[0013] 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.

[0014] The technical solutions of the present invention may be applied to various communications systems, for example, a Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM, Global System of Mobile communication), a general packet radio service (GPRS, General Packet Radio Service) system, a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA, Code Division Multiple Access) system, a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA, Wideband Code Division Multiple Access Wireless) system, a Long Term Evolution (LTE, Long Term Evolution) system, and various wireless communications systems evolved and developed subsequently, which include but are not limited to the fifth-generation mobile communications system (5G, 5th Generation) and the like.

[0015] User equipment (UE, User Equipment), also referred to as a mobile terminal (Mobile Terminal), mobile user equipment, or the like, may communicate with one or more core networks (CN, Core Network) through a radio access network (RAN, Radio Access Network). The user equipment may be, for example, a mobile phone or a computer with a mobile terminal. For example, the user equipment may be a portable, pocket-sized, handheld, computer built-in, or in-vehicle mobile apparatus.

[0016] A base station may be a base station (BTS, Base Transceiver Station) in the GSM or CDMA, may be a base station (NodeB) in the WCDMA, or may be an evolved NodeB (eNB or e-NodeB, evolutional Node B) in the LTE, or a network device implementing a similar function in a subsequent evolved system, which is not limited in the present invention. It should be noted that changing a form of a network device correspondingly according to an actual network deployment need, for example, changing the form of the network device to a distributed base station or the like, shall also fall within the protection scope of the present invention.

[0017] A polar code (polar code) hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ, Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request) method, an apparatus, and a terminal device that are disclosed in the embodiments of the present invention can fully use a capability of a polar code, thereby improving retransmission performance and efficiency of the polar code.

[0018] FIG. 1 shows a wireless communications system 100 according to the embodiments described in the specification. The system 100 includes a base station 102, which may include multiple antenna groups. For example, one antenna group may include an antenna 104 and an antenna 106, another antenna group may include an antenna 108 and an antenna 110, and an additional group may include an antenna 112 and an antenna 114. For each antenna group, two antennas are shown; however, more or fewer antennas may be used for each group. The base station 102 may additionally include a transmitter link and a receiver link, and a person of ordinary skill in the art may understand that both the transmitter link and the receiver link may include multiple components related to signal sending and receiving, for example, a processor, a modulator, a multiplexer, a demodulator, a demultiplexer, and an antenna.

[0019] The base station 102 may communicate with one or more access terminals, for example, an access terminal 116 and an access terminal 122. It may be understood that the base station 102 may communicate with any quantity of access terminals that are similar to the access terminal 116 and the access terminal 122. The access terminal 116 and the access terminal 122 may be, for example, a cellular phone, a smart phone, a portable computer, a handheld communications device, a handheld computing device, a satellite radio apparatus, a global positioning system, a PDA, or any other suitable devices configured to perform communication in the wireless communications system 100. As shown in FIG. 1, the access terminal 116 communicates with the antenna 112 and the antenna 114, and the antenna 112 and the antenna 114 send information to the access terminal 116 by using a forward link 118, and receive information from the access terminal 116 by using a reverse link 120. Besides, the access terminal 122 communicates with the antenna 104 and the antenna 106, and the antenna 104 and the antenna 106 send information to the access terminal 122 by using a forward link 124, and receive information from the access terminal 122 by using a reverse link 126. In a frequency division duplex (FDD, Frequency Division Duplex) system, for example, a frequency band different from that used by the reverse link 120 may be used by the forward link 118, and a frequency band different from that used by the reverse link 126 may be used by the forward link 124. In addition, in a time division duplex (TDD, Time Division Duplex) system, a common frequency band may be used by the forward link 118 and the reverse link 120, and a common frequency band may be used by the forward link 124 and the reverse link 126.

[0020] Each antenna group and/or area designed for communication is referred to as a sector of the base station 102. For example, an antenna group may be designed to communicate with an access terminal in a sector of an area covered by the base station 102. In communication by using the forward link 118 and the forward link 124, a transmit antenna of the base station 102 may improve, by means of beamforming, signal-to-noise ratios of the forward link 118 and the forward link 124 for the access terminal 116 and the access terminal 122. In addition, compared with sending, by the base station by using a single antenna, information to all access terminals of the base station, sending, by the base station 102 by means of beamforming, information to the access terminal 116 and the access terminal 122 that are distributed randomly in a related coverage area causes less interference to a mobile device in a neighboring cell.

[0021] In a given period of time, the base station 102, the access terminal 116, or the access terminal 122 may be a sending wireless communications apparatus or a receiving wireless communications apparatus. When sending data, the sending wireless communications apparatus may encode the data for transmission. Specifically, the sending wireless communications apparatus may have a particular quantity of information bits that need to be sent to the receiving wireless communications apparatus by using a channel. Such information bits may be contained in one or more data transport blocks. In addition, the sending wireless communications apparatus may encode each code block by using a polar code encoder, so as to improve data transmission reliability and ensure communication quality.

[0022] FIG. 2 is a schematic block diagram of a system 200 applicable to the present invention in a wireless communication environment and applied to a polar code encoding method. The system 200 includes a wireless communications device 202. The wireless communications device 202 may be a base station, for example, the base station 102 in FIG. 1, or may be an access terminal, for example, the access terminal 116 or the access terminal 122 in FIG. 1.

[0023] The wireless communications device 202 further includes a polar code encoder 204, a rate matching apparatus 205, and a transmitter 206. Optionally, the wireless communications device 202 may further include a receiver. The receiver may exist separately, or may be integrated into the transmitter 206 to form a transceiver having sending and receiving functions.

[0024] The polar code encoder 204 is configured to encode data to be sent from the wireless communications device 202 to obtain an encoded polar code.

[0025] The following describes a specific processing process of the polar code encoder 204 in detail. It should be noted that these embodiments are merely for helping a person skilled in the art to better understand the present invention, and not for limiting the protection scope of the present invention.

[0026] FIG. 3 is a schematic flowchart of a polar code HARQ method disclosed in the present invention. The method 300 shown in FIG. 3 may be performed by a wireless communications device, for example, the polar code encoder 204 in the wireless communications device shown in FIG. 2.

[0027] S301. Obtain a bit sequence of retransmission information, where the bit sequence of the retransmission information is determined according to K retransmission information bits that are determined from a bit sequence of first transmission information, the bit sequence of the first transmission information includes N first transmission information bits, N is a positive integer, and K is a positive integer not greater than N.

[0028] S302. Perform polar code encoding on the bit sequence of the retransmission information, to obtain an encoded retransmission bit sequence.

[0029] S303. Send the encoded retransmission bit sequence.

[0030] It is assumed that the bit sequence of the first transmission information is uA = (ua1, ua2, ..., uaN), and a sequence the same as that of the bit sequence of the first transmission information is a preset order. Generally, it is assumed that a1 < a2 <···<aN.

[0031] In this embodiment, some bits in the bit sequence uA = of the first transmission information need to be encoded and retransmitted. Specifically, it is assumed that the bit sequence of the retransmission information is uP, and includes K retransmission information bits, that is, up1, up2, ..., upK, and 1≤K≤N.

[0032] Optionally, in S301, the bit sequence of the retransmission information may be uP = (up1, up2, ..., upK), and satisfies p1 < p2 <···< pK, that is, the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information is determined according to K retransmission information bits that are determined according to a preset order from the bit sequence uA = of the first transmission information. Because a receive end performs decoding by means of joint decoding, in this case, it is relatively simple for the receive end to implement joint decoding during decoding.

[0033] Optionally, in S301, the bit sequence of the retransmission information may be uP = (upK, upK-1, ..., up1), and satisfies p1 < p2 <···<pK, that is, the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information is determined according to K retransmission information bits that are determined according to an order reverse to a preset order from the bit sequence uA of the first transmission information. Because bits have different reliability in polar code encoding, in this case, as a receive end determines the K retransmission information bits according to the order reverse to the preset order during decoding, positions of bits having different reliability in first transmission can be changed in retransmission, thereby improving link performance in a transmission process.

[0034] Optionally, in S301, the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information may satisfy the following conditions:
  1. (1)

    represents K retransmission information bits determined according to the preset order from uA = (ua1, ua2, ..., uaN), where p1 < p2 < ···< pK, and retransmission information bits included in uP are the same as those in

  2. (2) uP includes I sequentially arranged groups, where 1≤I≤K. Retransmission information bits included in each of the I groups are arranged according to the preset order or arranged according to the order reverse to the preset order.


[0035] In condition (1), the K retransmission information bits are determined according to the preset order. Specifically, the arrangement order of the K retransmission information bits is the same as that of the K retransmission information bits in the bit sequence uA of the first transmission information. For example, in this embodiment, when a1 < a2 <···< aN,

arranged according to the preset order satisfies p1 < p2 <···< pK.

[0036] For condition (1), an extreme case is K=N, that is, a quantity of the retransmission information bits is the same as a quantity of the first transmission information bits.

[0037] In condition (2), uP includes I groups. An ith group includes Ki retransmission information bits, 1≤i≤I, and K = ∑Ki is satisfied.

[0038] For example, when I=K/2, and Ki=2, uP = (up2, up1, up4, up3 , ..., upK, upK-1), that is, two retransmission information bits in each of sequentially arranged K/2 groups in uP are arranged according to the order reverse to the preset order, as shown in FIG. 4A.

[0039] When I=K/3, and Ki=3, uP = (up3, up2, up1, up4, up5, up6, ..., upK, upK-1, upK-2), that is, each of sequentially arranged K/3 groups in uP includes three retransmission information bits, and as shown in FIG. 4B, retransmission information bits in the first group and in the (K/3)th group are arranged according to the order reverse to the preset order, and retransmission information bits in the second group are arranged according to the preset order.

[0040] It should be noted that quantities of retransmission information bits included in all groups of the I groups in the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information may be the same or may be different, and may be set flexibly by a person skilled in the art according to a specific application scenario. This is not described herein.

[0041] In this embodiment, the foregoing mathematical expressions are used merely for ease of description, and should not be construed as a limitation to the protection scope of the present invention.

[0042] In S302, polar code encoding is performed on the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information, to obtain an encoded output sequence, that is, an encoded retransmission bit sequence yP = (yp1, yp2, ..., ypS), where S is a code length of an encoded polar code. The polar code encoding may be performed on uP by using any existing technical solution, or by using a solution obtained by improving the prior art. This is not limited in the present invention.

[0043] It should be noted that in a specific implementation process, a manner of obtaining the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information in S301 is not limited in the present invention. A general implementation manner in the present invention is shown in FIG. 5. A person skilled in the art may perform polar code encoding on uP by using an encoder that is different from that used when performing polar code encoding on uA, or may use a same encoder according to a need of a specific implementation manner. FIG. 5 is merely an example, and the implementation manner is not limited in the present invention.

[0044] For ease of implementing the present invention, the present invention further discloses multiple manners of obtaining the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information in S301, and each of the following described implementation manners may be combined with S301.

[0045] For example, an implementation manner of obtaining a bit sequence of retransmission information is shown in IFG. 6, and the obtaining the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information specifically includes the following steps:

S601. Determine K retransmission information bits, that is, select bits. Specifically, the K retransmission information bits are selected from the N first transmission information bits included in the bit sequence uA = of the first transmission information.

S602. Determine an arrangement order of the K retransmission information bits, that is, arrange the bits. Specifically, the K retransmission information bits selected in S601 are arranged, to obtain the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information.



[0046] For example, another implementation manner of obtaining the bit sequence uP of the retransmission information specifically includes the following steps:

S701. Receive a retransmission parameter.

S702. Obtain the bit sequence of the retransmission information according to the retransmission parameter.



[0047] In S701, the retransmission parameter may be sent from a peer network device in a communication process, or may be sent from a control device in a communications network, a forwarder or a server having a similar control function, or the like, as shown in FIG. 7A and FIG. 7B. Names of network devices in FIG. 7A and FIG. 7B are merely used as examples.

[0048] Optionally, the retransmission parameter received in S701 may include information adequate for determining the bit sequence of the retransmission information. That is, in S702, the bit sequence of the retransmission information may be obtained according to the information carried in the retransmission parameter. For example, the retransmission parameter may include a rule for determining the K retransmission information bits, and an arrangement manner of the K retransmission information bits, so as to determine the bit sequence of the retransmission information.

[0049] Optionally, the retransmission parameter received in S701 may include only a part of information for determining the bit sequence of the retransmission information. In S702, the bit sequence of the retransmission information may be obtained according to the retransmission parameter and pre-stored information. The pre-stored information includes at least one of a rule for determining the retransmission information bits or a rule for arranging the retransmission information bits. Specific content of the retransmission parameter and the pre-stored information may be flexibly configured by a person skilled in the art in a specific implementation manner. For example, the retransmission parameter may include a rule for determining the K retransmission information bits, and the pre-stored information includes a rule for arranging the K retransmission information bits. Alternatively, the retransmission parameter may include an arrangement manner of the K retransmission information bits, and the pre-stored information includes a rule for determining the K retransmission information bits. The foregoing examples and various information combination manners derived from the examples are all within the protection scope of the present invention.

[0050] In addition, in order to save transmission resources of an air interface, the retransmission parameter may indicate, by using a number, an index, or the like, information carried in the retransmission parameter. In S702, the bit sequence of the retransmission information is determined according to the information provided by the received retransmission parameter and the pre-stored information. For example, in this scenario, the pre-stored information may include a rule for determining the retransmission information bits and a rule for arranging the retransmission information bits.

[0051] For example, the present invention further discloses an implementation manner of obtaining the bit sequence of the retransmission information, that is, obtaining the bit sequence of the retransmission information according to pre-stored information. Specifically, after first transmission, the bit sequence of the retransmission information is determined according to the bit sequence of the first transmission information and the pre-stored information by means of table lookup, calculation, or another similar processing process. The pre-stored information includes a rule for determining the retransmission information bits and a rule for arranging the retransmission information bits. This implementation manner does not need to depend on a received retransmission parameter, thereby further saving the transmission resources of the air interface.

[0052] It should be noted that the pre-stored information disclosed in the foregoing embodiments may be in different forms in specific implementation processes. Examples are provided as follows:
The pre-stored information may be a pre-stored table, and the bit sequence of the retransmission information is determined by looking up the table directly. For example, after the first transmission, the bit sequence of the retransmission information is determined according to the preset table.

[0053] Alternatively, the pre-stored information may be a pre-stored algorithm, and the bit sequence of the retransmission information is determined by means of calculation. For example, the retransmission parameter carries a particular number, and the particular number represents a corresponding particular algorithm. After the retransmission parameter is received, the bit sequence of the retransmission information may be determined according to the particular algorithm.

[0054] Alternatively, the pre-stored information may be in another form, such as an interleaver designed according to a table or an algorithm.

[0055] In addition, it should be noted that the rule for determining the K retransmission information bits that is disclosed in the foregoing embodiments may be in different forms in specific implementation processes. Examples are provided as follows:

[0056] For example, the K retransmission information bits may be K bits having lowest reliability among the N first transmission information bits. Because a transmission error probability of the K bits having lowest reliability is relatively high, retransmitting the K bits may greatly improve link performance.

[0057] For example, the K retransmission information bits may be selected from the N first transmission information bits according to a sequential order or according to a reverse order, or may be selected in a random manner or in a pseudo random manner. This is not limited in the present invention and is not described herein.

[0058] The present invention discloses a polar code HARQ method, which is used when multiple times of retransmission need to be performed during data transmission between network devices in a communications system, as shown in FIG. 8. For an entity for performing the method 800 shown in FIG. 8, refer to the entity for performing the method disclosed in FIG. 3. Because S301 to S303 have been described in the foregoing embodiments, only the remaining steps are described below:

S804. Obtain a bit sequence of second-time-retransmission information, where the bit sequence of the second-time-retransmission information is determined according to M second-time-retransmission information bits that are determined from the bit sequence of the first transmission information, and M is a positive integer not greater than N.

S805. Perform polar code encoding on the bit sequence of the second-time-retransmission information, to obtain an encoded second-time-retransmission bit sequence.

S806. Send the encoded second-time-retransmission bit sequence.



[0059] An execution process of S804 is similar to that of S301. It is assumed that the bit sequence uM of the second-time-retransmission information includes the M second-time-retransmission information bits, where 1≤M≤N.

[0060] The bit sequence of the second-time-retransmission information may be obtained in any one or a combination of the manners described in the foregoing embodiments. In addition, a method of obtaining the bit sequence of the retransmission information may be the same or different from that of obtaining the bit sequence of the second-time-retransmission information.

[0061] Optionally, the M second-time-retransmission information bits included in the bit sequence of the second-time-retransmission information may be different from the K retransmission information bits included in the bit sequence of the retransmission information. In this case, K+M bits are retransmitted, thereby further improving link performance.

[0062] Further optionally, when the K retransmission information bits are the K bits having lowest reliability among the N first transmission information bits, the M second-time-retransmission information bits may be the (K+1)th to the (K+M)th bits having lowest reliability among the N first transmission information bits.

[0063] In S805, polar code encoding is performed on uM, to obtain an encoded output sequence, that is, an encoded second-time-retransmission bit sequence yM = (ym1, ym2, ..., ymS). It should be noted that, during the first transmission and one or more times of retransmission, a same polar code encoding solution may be used, or different polar code encoding solutions may be used.

[0064] FIG. 9 shows a polar code HARQ method in a process in which multiple times of retransmission are performed. In first transmission and each retransmission process, a same polar code encoder and a same polar code encoding solution may be used, or different polar code encoders and different polar code encoding solutions may be used, or similar configuration solutions may be used. For a retransmission process from the second time of retransmission, refer to the solution disclosed in S804 to S806, which is not described herein again.
