    Description

    TECHNICAL FIELD



    [0001] The disclosure relates to the field of communications, and more particularly to a method and device for signal detection. Related technologies are known from the documents US 2011/312316A1, WO 2015/042858A1, EP 2387163A1 and CN 102547968A.

    BACKGROUND



    [0002] According to existing researches on a 5th-Generation (5G) mobile communication technology, a terminal may be respectively accessed to a 5G network and a Long Term Evolution (LTE) network on different frequency bands.

    DETAILED DESCRIPTION



    [0006] The technical solutions in the embodiments of the disclosure will be clearly and completely described below in combination with the drawings in the embodiments of the disclosure. It is apparent that the described embodiments are not all embodiments but part of embodiments of the disclosure. All other embodiments obtained by those of ordinary skill in the art based on the embodiments in the disclosure without creative work shall fall within the scope of protection of the disclosure.

    [0007] It should be understood that the technical solutions of the disclosure may be applied to various communication systems, for example, a Global System of Mobile Communication (GSM), a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) system, a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) system, a General Packet Radio Service (GPRS), a Long Term Evolution (LTE), a 5G New Radio (NR) system and the like.

    [0008] It is also to be understood that a terminal may be called a terminal device or User Equipment (UE), may also be called a mobile terminal, a mobile user device and the like and may communicate with one or more core networks through, for example, a Radio Access Network (RAN). The UE may be a mobile terminal, for example, a mobile phone (or called as a "cellular" phone) and a computer with a mobile terminal, may be, for example, a portable, pocket, handheld, computer-embedded or vehicle-mounted mobile device and performs language and/or data exchange with the RAN.

    [0009] A Transmission Point (TP) in the disclosure is also referred to a Transmission and Reception Point (TRP) and may also be a cell, a carrier, a Radio Remote Head (RRH), a beam formed by an antenna array and covering a certain range, a relay node, other network nodes (such as a Home eNode B or femtocell) or the like.

    [0010] FIG. 1 illustrates a method for signal detection according to an embodiment of the disclosure. The method illustrated in FIG. 1 includes the following operations.

    [0011] At 110, a terminal receives system from a first TP configuration information of a second TP.

    [0012] Specifically, the terminal may receive the system configuration information of the second TP that is sent by the first TP.

    [0013] It should be understood that, the system configuration information of the second TP may be sent from the second TP to the first TP by enabling the terminal to trigger the second TP. It may also be that the terminal sends system configuration information of multiple alternative second TP to the first TP, and then the first TP triggers a second TP to send system configuration information of the second TP to the terminal through the first TP. The system configuration information of the second TP may also be pre-stored in the first TP and sent it from the first TP to the terminal, all of which will not be elaborated herein.

    [0014] It should be further understood that, the terminal may receive the system configuration information of the second TP via a downlink signaling transmitted by the first TP. For example, the terminal may receive the downlink signaling sent by the first TP via a Radio Resource Control (RRC) signaling sent by the first TP.

    [0015] In an optional embodiment, the system configuration information includes at least one of: working frequency point information of the second TP, system bandwidth information of the second TP, time synchronization information of the second TP relative to the first TP, sub-carrier spacing information of the second TP, prefix information of a signal of the second TP, configuration information on structure of sub-frames of the second TP, configuration information on uplink and downlink time slots of the second TP, configuration information on a synchronization signal of the second TP, configuration information on a reference signal of the second TP, ID information of the second TP or antenna configuration information of the second TP.

    [0016] Specifically, the time synchronization information of the second TP relative to the first TP includes at least one of: indication information for indicating whether the second TP is synchronous with the first TP or a time synchronization offset of the second TP relative to the first TP.

    [0017] The time synchronization offset of the second TP relative to the first TP includes at least one of: a radio frame offset of the second TP relative to the first TP, a sub-frame offset of the second TP relative to the first TP, a TTI offset of the second TP relative to the first TP or a transmission symbol offset of the second TP relative to the first TP.

    [0018] For example, the radio frame offset N may indicate that N radio frames are spaced between the second TP and the first TP in time synchronization. Generally, the time length of a radio frame is 10ms. The sub-frame offset N may indicate that the difference in time synchronization between the second TP and the first TP is N sub-frames. The TTI offset N may indicate that the difference in time synchronization between the second TP and the first TP is N TTIs. The symbol offset N may indicate that the difference in symbol between the second TP and the first TP is N symbols.

    [0019] The configuration information on the synchronization signal of the second TP includes at least one of resource position information of the synchronization signal or sequence information carried in the synchronization signal.

    [0020] The resource position information of the synchronization signal is used for indicating configuration information on time-frequency resources of the synchronization signal, a sub-frame at which the synchronization signal is located and a symbol at which the synchronization signal is located.

    [0021] All or part of the sequence information carried in the synchronization signal may refer to all or part of information carried in the synchronization signal via a synchronization sequence. For example, the synchronization sequence may carry a full ID (ID) of the second TP or a part of information used for obtaining the ID of the second TP.

    [0022] For example, when the ID of the second TP is ID=AB, the synchronization signal may carry information A for indicating the ID of the second TP, and the terminal may determine B via subsequent detection on the downlink signal of the second TP. In another alternative example, the synchronization signal may carry the full ID of the second TP; and in this case, the terminal may directly acquire the ID of the second TP without a need for the terminal to re-detect a downlink signal subsequently transmitted by the second TP to determine B.

    [0023] The system configuration information includes the configuration information on the reference signal of the second TP. The configuration information on the reference signal includes at least one of the following information: configuration information on time-frequency resources of the reference signal, sequence information of the reference signal, configuration information on transmitting power of the reference signal or port configuration information of the reference signal.

    [0024] The configuration information on time-frequency resources of the reference signal may be configuration information on time-frequency resource transmission patterns of the reference signal, a transmission period for transmitting the reference signal, configuration information on a sub-frame used for transmitting the reference signal or the like.

    [0025] The sequence information of the reference signal may be information such as a scrambling sequence ID of the reference signal, an orthogonal code length of the reference signal, an orthogonal code type of the reference signal or the like.

    [0026] The port configuration information of the reference signal may be the number of antenna ports for transmitting the reference signal.

    [0027] The prefix information for the signal of the second TP includes at least one of prefix type information or prefix length information.

    [0028] The configuration information on structure of sub-frames of the second TP includes at least one of: the number of OFDM symbols in a sub-frame, the number of GPs in the sub-frame, positions of the GPs in the sub-frame, or the number of different types of OFDM symbols in the sub-frame.

    [0029] The antenna configuration information may be used for indicating the number of antenna ports of the second TP, antenna types of the second TP or the like.

    [0030] It should be understood that, information for indicating a system configuration of the second TP in the system configuration information may be combined in any manner and transmitted to the terminal via the first TP. There are no limits of the manner for combining the above information made in the disclosure.

    [0031] For example, the terminal may determine a sequence of the reference signal according to the configuration information on the reference signal of the second TP in the system configuration information and the ID of the second TP, such as a Cell-specific Reference Signal (CRS) sequence or Channel Signal Information Reference Signal (CSI-RS).

    [0032] In an optional embodiment, the first TP is a carrier for transmitting LTE data, and the second TP is a carrier for transmitting 5G NR data.

    [0033] Specifically, the first TP may be a carrier used by a cell in a an LTE network currently resided by the terminal, and the second TP may be a carrier for transmitting the NR data in the 5G network to which the terminal is accessed.

    [0034] It should be understood that, the first TP and the second TP may be carriers for transmitting the data in different network types, which will not be elaborated herein.

    [0035] At 120, the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP.

    [0036] It is to be noted that, the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP may include the following actions. The terminal modulates the downlink signal of the second TP, the terminal measures the downlink signal of the second TP and the like, which will not be elaborated herein.

    [0037] In an optional embodiment, the time synchronization information includes the indication information for indicating whether the second TP is synchronous with the first TP, the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following actions. When the second TP is synchronous with the first TP, the terminal performs the downlink signal detection of the second TP according to downlink timing of the first TP; or, the terminal determines a detection window for the synchronization signal of the second TP according to the downlink timing of the first TP, performs synchronization signal detection of the second TP in the detection window to obtain the synchronization reference of the second TP and performs the downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the synchronization reference of the second TP.

    [0038] Specifically, the terminal may determine whether the second TP is synchronous with the first TP according to the indication information. When the first TP is synchronous with the second TP, the terminal may perform the detection on the downlink signal of the second TP.

    [0039] For example, when the first TP is synchronous with the second TP, the terminal may obtain the downlink timing from the first TP. The downlink timing may refer to a start time for a radio frame or a radio sub-frame and taken as a start time for a radio frame or a radio sub-frame of the second TP, and thus the terminal may determine a time sequence for the radio frame or the radio sub-frame of the second TP. In other words, the terminal may determine a boundary and an index for the radio frame of the second TP according to the downlink timing obtained by the first TP.

    [0040] When the first TP is synchronous with the second TP, the terminal may further take the downlink timing of the first TP as downlink timing for the downlink signal of the second TP and selects a detection window nearby the downlink timing as a detection window for the downlink signal of the second TP. The terminal may perform the detection of the downlink signal of the second TP in the detection window.

    [0041] For example, when the first TP is synchronous with the second TP, the terminal may further determine an estimated time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP according to the downlink timing obtained from the first TP and the time-frequency resources for the synchronization signal of the second TP, and determine a signal detection window nearby the estimated time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal as the detection window for the downlink signal of the second TP. For example, the terminal may determine a signal detection window which takes the estimated time-frequency resource position as a center and length of which is K microsecond as the detection window for the downlink signal of the second TP.

    [0042] It should be further understood that, when the terminal determines that the second TP is not synchronous with the first TP via the indication information, the terminal may further obtain other information of the second TP for downlink signal measurement or detection via the first TP to detect a downlink synchronization signal of the second TP, which will not be elaborated herein.

    [0043] In an optional embodiment, the time synchronization information includes the indication information for indicating whether the second TP is synchronous with the first TP, and the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following actions. When the second TP is not synchronous with the first TP, the terminal detects the synchronization signal of the second TP to obtain the synchronization reference of the second TP, and the terminal performs the downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the synchronization reference of the second TP.

    [0044] Specifically, the terminal may acquire the synchronization reference of the second TP through the detection on the synchronization signal of the second TP. The synchronization reference of the second TP may be at least one of a time synchronization reference of the second TP or a frequency synchronization reference of the second TP. The synchronization reference of the second TP includes information such as symbol clock and frequency information of the second TP, a cell bandwidth, a cell ID, frame block information, a cell multi-antenna configuration, a Broadcast Channel (BCH) bandwidth, a Synchronization Channel (SCH), and a length of a Cyclic Prefix (CP) of the sub-frame where a BCH is located, etc.

    [0045] In an optional embodiment, the time synchronization information includes the time synchronization offset of the second TP relative to the first TP, and the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following action. The terminal determines the detection window for the synchronization signal of the second TP according to the time synchronization offset and a time-frequency resource predetermined for the synchronization signal of the second TP. The terminal performs synchronization signal detection of the second TP in the detection window to obtain the synchronization reference of the second TP, and the terminal performs the downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the synchronization reference of the second TP.

    [0046] Specifically, the terminal may estimate the downlink timing of the second TP according to the downlink timing of the first TP and the time offset of the second TP. In other words, the downlink timing of the second TP may be estimated by performing a time offset corresponding to the time offset on the downlink timing of the first TP. The terminal determines the estimated time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP according to the time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP and the estimated downlink timing of the second TP, and the terminal determines a detection window nearby the estimated time-frequency resource position as the detection window for the downlink signal of the second TP.

    [0047] For example, the terminal may determine time-frequency resources for a Primary Synchronization Signal (PSS) of the second TP. For a Frequency Division Duplexing (FDD) mode, the PSS may be carried on a last one OFDM symbol of a slot0 and a slot10. The terminal performs detection on the PSS in time-frequency resources where the PSS is located. The terminal may acquire a cell ID in a cell group and simultaneously may further determine a time slot boundary at 5ms to obtain time slot synchronization.

    [0048] The terminal may further determine a reference time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP according to the downlink timing of the first TP and the time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP. In other words, the reference time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP is determined based on the downlink timing of the first TP. The terminal may further determine the estimated time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP according to the time offset of the second TP relative to the first TP and the reference time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal. The terminal may take a window nearby the estimated time-frequency resource as the detection window.

    [0049] It is to be noted that, the estimated time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP may be obtained by performing a time offset corresponding to the time offset of the second TP relative to the first TP through the reference time-frequency resource position.

    [0050] It should be understood that, the time-frequency resource position predetermined for the synchronization signal of the second TP may be a time-frequency resource position determined by taking the downlink timing of the first TP as a reference. The time-frequency resource predetermined for the synchronization signal of the second TP may further be promised in advance, for example, an Mth symbol and a fixed bandwidth of an Nth sub-frame.

    [0051] For example, the terminal may take a time window centered at the estimated time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP and having a length being 0.5ms as the detection window for the downlink signal of the second TP.

    [0052] It should be understood that upon the determination of the synchronization reference of the second TP, the terminal may determine a transmission resource position for the downlink signal according to the time-frequency resource for the downlink signal of the second TP, thereby performing detection and measurement.

    [0053] It is to be noted that when the time synchronization offset of the second TP relative to the first TP is zero, it may be indicated that the second TP is synchronous with the first TP. When the time synchronization offset of the second TP relative to the first TP is not zero, it may be indicated that the second TP is not synchronous (asynchronous) with the first TP.

    [0054] It should be understood that, the operation that the terminal acquires the synchronization reference of the second TP may refer to that the terminal acquires at least one of a time synchronization reference or a frequency synchronization reference of the second TP. The synchronization reference of the second TP includes information such as symbol clock and frequency information of the second TP, a cell bandwidth, a cell ID, frame block information, a cell multi-antenna configuration, a BCH bandwidth, a length of a CP of a sub-frame where the SCH and the BCH are located or the like.

    [0055] In an optional embodiment, the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following actions. The terminal detects the synchronization signal of the second TP according to at least one of the time-frequency resource position or sequence information for the synchronization signal of the second TP to obtain the synchronization reference of the second TP, and the terminal performs the downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the synchronization reference of the second TP.

    [0056] It is to be noted that, when obtaining all configuration information for the synchronization signal of the second TP, the terminal may directly detect the synchronization signal of the second TP based on the configuration information for the synchronization signal of the second TP without a blind detection, thereby reducing the detection complexity of the terminal.

    [0057] When obtaining a part of configuration information for the synchronization signal of the second TP, the terminal may perform the blind detection on unknown configuration information for the synchronization signal based on the part of configuration information for the synchronization signal. In this case, the solution may reduce the complexity of the downlink signal detection on the second TP to a certain degree and simultaneously may keep a certain flexibility.

    [0058] It should be understood that, the terminal may further perform the downlink signal detection of the second TP via other information in the system configuration information. For example, the terminal may determine the detection window for the synchronization signal of the second TP according to the time synchronization offset of the second TP relative to the first TP in the system configuration information and the time-frequency resource position for the synchronization signal of the second TP. The terminal performs the detection on the downlink signal of the second TP according to the sequence information for the synchronization signal of the second TP on the detection window.

    [0059] In an optional embodiment, the system configuration information of the second TP includes the configuration information on the reference signal of the second TP, and the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following actions. The terminal determines a configuration for the reference signal of the second TP according to the configuration information on the reference signal of the second TP and the terminal performs downlink RRM measurement of the second TP according to the configuration for the reference signal of the second TP. The method further includes the following actions. The terminal generates an RRM measurement result, and the terminal sends the RRM measurement result to the first TP, or the terminal determines whether the second TP is detected according to the RRM measurement result.

    [0060] It should be understood that, the terminal may determine whether to communicate with the second TP according to the RRM measurement result. The terminal may determine whether to access the second TP according to the RRM measurement result. The terminal may determine whether to receive a signal subsequently transmitted by the second TP according to the RRM measurement result.

    [0061] Further, the terminal may determine whether to send the indication information for indicating whether the second TP is detected to the first TP after detecting the second TP according to the RRM measurement result.

    [0062] It is to be noted that, the reference signal may include at least one of the CRS or the CSI-RS of the second TP.

    [0063] For example, the terminal may determine a Resource Block (RE) carrying the CRS and/or the CSI-RS according to CRS and/or CSI-RS configuration information (such as, time-frequency resource positions of CRS and/or CSI-RS) of the second TP. The terminal may measure an average value of powers of the reference signals received on the RE carrying the CRS and/or the CSI-RS.

    [0064] It should be understood that, the terminal may determine configuration information on the reference signal according to the above configuration information on the reference signal, and may also determine configuration information on the reference signal according to other information of the second TP. The approach for acquiring the configuration information on the reference signal by the terminal is not specifically defined in the disclosure.

    [0065] For example, the terminal may determine a time-frequency resource position for the CRS and/or the CSI-RS according to the time offset of the second TP relative to the first TP and the configuration information on the reference signal. The time-frequency resource position for the reference signal of the second TP may be further promised in advance.

    [0066] For example, the terminal may obtain the synchronization reference of the second TP according to the configuration information on the synchronization signal in the system configuration information. The terminal may determine the time-frequency resource position for the CRS and/or the CSI-RS according to the synchronization reference of the second TP and the configuration information on the reference signal of the second TP.

    [0067] For example, the terminal may determine a sequence for the CRS/ the CSI-RS according to the ID information of the second TP and the configuration information on the reference signal of the second TP in the system configuration information.

    [0068] In an optional embodiment, the system configuration information includes the working frequency point information of the second TP, and the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following actions. The terminal determines a working frequency point of the second TP according to the working frequency point information of the second TP, and the terminal performs the downlink signal detection within a bandwidth where the working frequency point is located.

    [0069] For example, the terminal may perform the detection on the synchronization signal or the reference signal of the second TP within the bandwidth where the working frequency point of the second TP is located.

    [0070] In an optional embodiment, the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following actions. The terminal determines at least one of a prefix type or a prefix length of the downlink signal of the second TP according to the prefix information of the signal of the second TP. The terminal performs the downlink signal detection of the second TP, wherein the downlink signal of the second TP is a downlink signal carrying a prefix corresponding to at least one of the prefix type or the prefix length.

    [0071] Specifically, the prefix type information of the downlink signal may be used for indicating whether a Cyclic Prefix (CP) or a Zero Prefix (ZP) is adopted for the downlink signal.

    [0072] The prefix length information of the downlink signal may be used for indicating whether a conventional-length prefix or an extended-length prefix is adopted for the downlink signal.

    [0073] In an optional embodiment, the system configuration information of the second TP includes the sub-carrier spacing information of the second TP, and the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following actions. The terminal determines the number of sub-carriers within a target bandwidth of the second TP according to the sub-carrier spacing information. The terminal performs the downlink signal detection of the second TP according to number of sub-carriers within the target bandwidth.

    [0074] It is to be noted that, a mapping between a sub-carrier interval and the number of the sub-carriers within a certain bandwidth may be promised in advance. The target bandwidth may be determined according to the system bandwidth of the second TP carried in the system configuration information.

    [0075] In an optional embodiment, the system configuration information includes the configuration information on structure of sub-frames of the second TP, and the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following actions. The terminal determines a sub-frame structure of the second TP according to the configuration information on structure of sub-frames of the second TP, and the terminal performs the downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the sub-frame structure.

    [0076] Specifically, the configuration information on structure of sub-frames is used for indicating at least one of the following: the number of OFDM symbols in the sub-frame, the number of the GPs and lengths of the GPs in the sub-frame, configurations on the number of different types of OFDM symbols in the sub-frame, or the number of control symbols and data symbols in the sub-frame.

    [0077] Herein, the configurations on the number of different types of OFDM symbols in the sub-frame may refer to the number of downlink control/data symbols and the number of uplink control symbols in the sub-frame, may refer to number or proportion configuration of the downlink control symbols and the uplink data symbols in the sub-frame, and may refer to proportion configuration of the downlink control symbols and the uplink data symbols in the sub-frame.

    [0078] In an optional embodiment, the system configuration information includes the system bandwidth information of the second TP, and the operation that the terminal performs downlink signal detection of the second TP according to the system configuration information of the second TP includes the following actions. The terminal determines a system bandwidth of the second TP according to the system bandwidth information of the second TP, and the terminal performs the downlink signal detection of the second TP within the system bandwidth of the second TP.

    [0079] It should be understood that, the terminal may determine a sequence length of the synchronization signal or the reference signal of the second TP based on the system bandwidth of the second TP, thus performing the detection on the synchronization signal or the reference signal.

    [0097] FIG. 3 is a schematic flowchart of a method for signal detection according to another embodiment of the disclosure. The method illustrated in FIG. 3 includes the following operations.

    [0098] At 310, a terminal is resided on the cell 1 in the LTE frequency band.

    [0099] Specifically, the cell 1 is a serving cell that provides a service for the terminal.

    [0100] At 320, the terminal receives system configuration information of a cell 2 from the cell 1.

    [0101] Specifically, the terminal may receive a high-level signaling sent by the cell 1. The high-level signaling carries the system configuration information of the cell 2, and the system configuration information includes working frequency point information, system bandwidth information, sub-carrier spacing information and CSI-RS configuration information of the cell 2.

    [0108] It should be understood that, a correspondence among the bandwidth information, the sub-carrier spacing information and the number of the sub-carriers may be promised in advance.

    [0109] At 335, the terminal generates a CSI-RS sequence based on the CSI-RS sequence length and CSI-RS sequence configuration information.

    [0110] At 336, the terminal determines a time-frequency resource position of the CSI-RS according to a time-frequency synchronization reference and a CSI-RS time-frequency resource configuration of the cell 2.

    [0124] At 432, the terminal determines a time-frequency resource estimated position for the synchronization signal on the carrier 2 according to the sub-frame offset and a time-frequency resource position, promised in advance, of the synchronization signal.

    [0125] Specifically, the terminal may perform offset on the time-frequency resource position of the synchronization signal according to the time offset corresponding to the sub-frame offset and determines the offset time-frequency resource position as the time-frequency resource estimated position for the synchronization signal of the carrier 2. The time-frequency resource position may be a time-frequency resource position of the synchronization signal that is determined based on downlink timing of the carrier 1.

    [0126] For example, the time-frequency resource position, promised in advance, of the synchronization signal may be on a fixed bandwidth for an Mth symbol of an Nth sub-frame, wherein N and M both are a fixed value.

    [0127] At 433, the terminal performs the synchronization signal detection of the carrier 2 within a time range of a sub-frame length nearby the time-frequency resource estimated position for the synchronization signal of the carrier 2.

    [0129] Specifically, the synchronization reference may be at least one of a time synchronization reference or a frequency synchronization reference of the carrier 2.

    [0130] At 440, the terminal detects a CSI-RS signal and performs RMM measurement according to the synchronization reference of the carrier 2 and the CSI-RS configuration information of the carrier 2.

    [0131] Specifically, the operation 440 includes the following actions.

    [0133] It should be understood that a correspondence among a bandwidth, a sub-carrier interval and the number of the sub-carriers of the carrier 2 may be promised in advance.

    [0134] At 442, the terminal generates a CSI-RS sequence based on the CSI-RS sequence length and CSI-RS sequence configuration information.

    [0137] At 450, the terminal determines whether to perform cell access on the carrier 2 according to the RRM measurement result.

    [0138] It should be understood that, the terminal may send an RRM measurement result to the cell 1, so that the cell 1 determines whether the terminal performs the cell access on the carrier 2.
