Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION



[0001] The present application claims a priority of the Chinese patent application No.201710031854.X filed in China on January 17, 2017, which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0002] The present disclosure relates to the field of communication technology, in particular to a side information transmission method, a side information reception method, a transmitter and a receiver.

BACKGROUND



[0003] As a Multi-Carrier Modulation (MCM) technique, a core concept of an Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) technique lies in dividing a channel into a plurality of orthogonal sub-channels and performing narrow-band modulation and transmission on each sub-channel, so as to reduce mutual interference among the sub-channels. A signal bandwidth on each sub-channel is smaller than an associated bandwidth of the channel, so there is a flat frequency selective fading property for each sub-channel, and the inter-symbol interference is remarkably weakened. In addition, in an OFDM system, carriers for the sub-channels are orthogonal to each other, so the resultant spectra overlap each other. In this regard, it is able to reduce the mutual interference among sub-carriers, and improve the spectrum utilization. In the sub-channels, the orthogonal modulation and demodulation may be achieved through Inverse Fast Fourier Transform (IFFT) and Fast Fourier Transform (FFT).

[0004] The OFDM system is capable of providing a larger coverage range, better transmission quality, a higher data rate as well as higher spectrum efficiency. However, each OFDM symbol is acquired through superimposing a plurality of independent, modulated sub-carrier signals. When the sub-carriers have a same or similar phase, an overlapped signal may be modulated by a signal with a same initial phase, resulting in a large instantaneous power peak and thereby a large Peak-to-Average Power Ratio (PAPR).

[0005] In the related art, there are mainly two methods for reducing the PAPR, i.e., Selective Lapping (SLM) and Partial Transmit Sequence (PTS). However, in the two methods, it is difficult for a transmitter to reliably notify a receiver of a scrambling mode of a data signal.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE EMBODIMENTS



[0017] Schemes of the present disclosure will be described hereinafter in a clear and complete manner in conjunction with the drawings and embodiments. Obviously, the following embodiments merely relate to a part of, rather than all of, the embodiments of the present disclosure, and based on these embodiments, a person skilled in the art may, without any creative effort, obtain the other embodiments, which also fall within the scope of the present disclosure.

[0018] Fig.1 shows a communication system to which the scheme in the embodiments of the present disclosure is applicable. As shown in Fig.1, the communication system may include a transmitter 11 and a receiver 12. The transmitter 11 may be a device for transmitting a data signal, and the receiver 12 may be a device for receiving the data signal transmitted from the transmitter 11. For example, for an uplink signal, the transmitter 11 may be a User Equipment (UE) and the receiver 12 may be a network side device; and for a downlink signal, the transmitter 11 may be a network side device and the receiver 12 may be a UE. It should be appreciated that, in some scenarios where, for example, data is transmitted between UEs, the transmitter 11 and the receiver 12 may each be a UE; and in some scenarios where, for example, data is transmitted between the network side devices, the transmitter 11 and the receiver 12 may each be a network side device, which will not be particularly defined herein. In the drawings, the transmitter 11 may be the UE and the receiver 12 may be the network side device. In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the UE may be a mobile phone, a tablet personal computer, a laptop computer, a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), a Mobile Internet Device (MID) or a wearable device. The network side device may be a base station (e.g., a macro base station such as an evolved Node B (eNB) in a Long Term Evolution (LTE) system, a New Radio (NR) or a Node B (NB) in a 5th-Generation (5G) system, a Transmission Reception Point (TRP), or an Access Point (AP). It should be further appreciated that, the types of the UE and the network side device will not be particularly defined herein.

[0019] The present disclosure provides in some embodiments a side information transmission method which, as shown in Fig.2, includes the following steps.

[0020] Step 201: transmitting side information to a receiver on a physical control channel.

[0021] The physical control channel may be a physical layer channel for transmitting control-related information. The side information may be transmitted on the physical control channel, so as to prevent the transmission of a data signal from being adversely affected, thereby to improve the transmission performance.

[0022] Step 202: transmitting a scrambled data signal to the receiver on a physical data channel.

[0023] The side information may be used to indicate a scrambling mode of the data signal.

[0024] The physical data channel may be a physical layer channel for the data transmission. In addition, the scrambled data signal may include one or more scrambled data signal blocks, and the scrambling modes of different data signal blocks may be the same or different from each other. The side information may be used to indicate the scrambling mode of each scrambled data signal block transmitted in Step 202. In other words, when one data signal block is transmitted in Step 202, the side information may indicate the scrambling mode of the data signal block. When a plurality of data signal blocks is transmitted in Step 202, the side information may indicate the scrambling modes of the plurality of data signal blocks. In addition, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, how to indicate the scrambling mode of the data signal will not be particularly defined herein. For example, a transmitter may pre-agree with the receiver to determine an indication mode or indication rule.

[0025] In addition, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, the scrambling mode of the data signal may be selected by the transmitter from a plurality of scrambling modes. In other words, prior to Step 202, the receiver may select an appropriate scrambling mode for each data signal, so as to reduce a PARP for a data transmission system.

[0026] It should be appreciated that, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, a time-domain resource occupied by the physical control channel may be the same as a time-domain resource occupied by the physical data signal, i.e., the side information and the data signal may be transmitted to the receiver simultaneously. It should be appreciated that, the time-domain resource occupied by the physical control channel and the time-domain resource occupied by the physical data signal may be continuous or discontinuous time-domain resources in a same time-domain resource element. The time-domain resource element may be a frame, subframe or timeslot, which will not be particularly defined herein.

[0027] It should be appreciated that, an order of Steps 201 and 202 will be particularly defined herein. For example, Step 201 may be performed prior to or subsequent to Step 202, or Steps 201 and 202 may be performed simultaneously.

[0028] According to the side information transmission method in the embodiments of the present disclosure, the transmitter may transmit the side information to the receiver on the physical control channel, and transmit the scrambled data signal to the receiver on the physical data channel. The side information may be used to indicate the scrambling mode of the data signal. As a result, it is able for the transmitter to reliably notify the receiver of the scrambling mode of the data signal. In addition, the receiver may descramble the data signal in accordance with the scrambling mode indicated by the side information, so it is able to reduce the PAPR for the data transmission system.

[0029] The present disclosure further provides in some embodiments a side information transmission method for use in a transmitter which, as shown in Fig.3, includes the following steps.

[0030] Step 301: transmitting side information to a receiver on a physical control channel.

[0031] The physical control channel may be a channel for transmitting control-related information. The side information may be transmitted on the physical control channel, so as to prevent the transmission of a data signal from being adversely affected, thereby to improve the transmission performance.

[0032] Step 302: transmitting a scrambled data signal to the receiver on a physical data channel.

[0033] The side information may be used to indicate a scrambling mode of the data signal.

[0034] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the step of transmitting the scrambled data signal to the receiver on the physical data channel may include: dividing initial data into K data signal blocks, each data signal block corresponding to N different phase rotations, K and N being each a positive integer; selecting a phase rotation for each data signal block from the N different phase rotations; scrambling the K data signal blocks in accordance with the phase rotation for each data signal block, so as to acquire K scrambled data signal blocks; and transmitting the K scrambled data signal blocks to the receiver in a frequency-division multiplexing manner on the physical data channel. The side information may be used to indicate the scrambling mode of each of the K scrambled data signal blocks and indicate that no phase rotation is performed on the side information.

[0035] When each data signal block corresponds to N different phase rotations, one of the N different phase rotations may be selected for each data signal block. When the phase rotation for each data signal block is selected from the N different phase rotations for each data signal block, one phase rotation may be selected from the N different phase rotations for each data signal block.

[0036] During the implementation, the initial data may be divided into K data signal blocks. For example, as shown in Fig.4, a carrier (e.g., a subcarrier tone) of the initial data may be divided into K portions, i.e., K data signals, and each data signal may correspond to N different phase rotations, e.g.,

In other words, one of the N different phase rotations may be selected for each data signal. It should be appreciated that, the N different phase rotations corresponding to different data signal blocks may be spaced apart from each other at a regular interval or irregular intervals. During the selection of the phase rotation for each data signal block, the phase rotation may be selected from the N different phase rotations corresponding to the data signal block. In addition, the side information may be carried in Uplink Control Indication (UCI).

[0037] In this regard, the side information may be used to indicate the scrambling modes of the K data signal blocks through Klog2(N) (i.e., Klog2N) bits. The receiver may acquire the scrambling mode of each data signal in the K data signal blocks in accordance with the side information, so as to descramble the K data signal blocks.

[0038] In addition, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, when the initial data is divided into K data signal blocks, it is able to further reduce the PAPR for the data transmission system. For example, when a bandwidth is 20MHz, a subcarrier interval is 15kHz, and the side information is distributed at two ends of the data signal and occupies two Resource Blocks (RBs), values of K, N and PAPR may be showed in Fig.5. As shown in Fig.5, when K=2, a gain greater than 3dB may be achieved. The gain may not increase obviously when the value of N increases, so N may be 2. In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, K=2 and N=2, so as to make a balance between the reduction in the PAPR for the data transmission system and the complexity. At this time, the gain may be about 3.5dB to 4dB, which is equivalent to that the power is increased by about 2.5 times. In addition, the side information may be indicated through merely 2 bits, so it is able to reduce the signaling overhead.

[0039] In addition, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, when the phase rotation is selected from the N different phase rotations for each data signal block, a phase rotation corresponding to a minimum PAPR of the data signal may be selected from the N different phase rotations for each data signal block, so as to further reduce the PAPR. The step of scrambling the K data signal blocks in accordance with the phase rotation for each data signal block may include: acquiring a phase rotation sequence of the phase rotations for each data signal block, and scrambling each data signal block in accordance with the acquired phase rotation sequence; or scrambling each data signal block in accordance with the scrambling mode corresponding to the phase rotation for each data signal block. Here, the side information may be phase rotation indication information of each data signal block, and it may be used to indicate the phase rotation sequence for each data signal block, so as to indicate the scrambling mode of each data signal block, thereby to enable the receiver to performing a descrambling process. For example, the transmitter may determine a phase rotation sequence number corresponding to the phase rotation sequence for each data signal block in accordance with a predetermined correspondence between phase rotation sequence numbers and phase rotation sequences, and encode the determined phase rotation sequence number, so as to acquire the side information carrying the determined phase rotation sequence number.

[0040] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the step of transmitting the side information to the receiver on the physical control channel may include transmitting control information to the receiver on the physical control channel. The control information may at least include the side information.

[0041] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the side information may be transmitted to the receiver through the control information, so it is unnecessary to modify or adjust a transmission mechanism or protocol between the receiver and the transmitter, e.g., it is unnecessary to transmit the side information via any other signaling. As a result, it is able to reduce the power consumption.

[0042] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the control information may be UCI on which no phase rotation is performed.

[0043] Because no phase rotation is performed on the UCI, it is unnecessary to transmit relevant indication information indicating the phase rotation, and thereby it is able to reduce the signaling overhead. In addition, when no phase rotation is performed, it is able to reduce the quantity of blind detection operations made by the receiver.

[0044] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the transmitting the control information to the receiver on the physical control channel may include: transmitting the control information to the receiver through the physical control channel on frequency-domain resources at both sides of a frequency-domain resource occupied by the physical data channel; or transmitting the control information to the receiver through the physical control channel on frequency-domain resources at one side of the frequency-domain resource occupied by the physical data channel.

[0045] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the physical data signal may be the physical data channel for the transmission of the data signal, i.e., the physical data channel transmitted in Step 302.

[0046] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the control information may be transmitted through the frequency-domain resources at the two sides of the frequency-domain resource occupied by the physical data channel, so as to increase the transmission performance of the control information. In addition, the control information may be transmitted through the frequency-domain resources at one side of the frequency-domain resource occupied by the physical data channel, so as to reduce the resources.

[0047] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the frequency-domain resource occupied by the physical data channel may be spaced apart from the frequency-domain resource occupied by the physical control channel by an uplink frequency-domain resource, and/or a time-domain resource occupied by the physical data signal may be the same as a time-domain resource occupied by the physical control channel.

[0048] For example, as shown in Figs.6a and 6b, the frequency-domain resource occupied by the physical data channel may be spaced apart from the frequency-domain resource occupied by the physical control channel by an uplink frequency-domain resource. Here, the uplink frequency-domain resource may be called as an uplink resource for short. In addition, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, the time-domain resource occupied by the physical data signal may be the same as the time-domain resource occupied by the physical control channel, i.e., the control information and the data signal may be transmitted to the receiver simultaneously, so as to improve the transmission efficiency. Furthermore, the frequency-domain resource occupied by the physical control channel may be a subband, i.e., the physical control channel may occupy one or more sub-bands so as to transmit the side information.

[0049] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the side information may include phase rotation indication information of the data signal, and the phase rotation indication information may be used to indicate the scrambling mode of the data signal.

[0050] The phase rotation indication information may include a bit stream, e.g., Klog2(N) (i.e., Klog2N) bits. In addition, the phase rotation indication information may be used to indicate the scrambling mode of one or K scrambled data signal blocks. In other words, the receiver may determine the scrambling mode of the one or K scrambled data signal blocks in accordance with the phase rotation indication information, and then descramble the one or K scrambled data signal blocks in accordance with the determined scrambling mode, so as to acquire the initial data. Here, the data signal may be scrambled in accordance with the phase rotation sequence for the data signal, and the phase rotation indication information may be used to indicate the phase rotation sequence, e.g., the phase rotation sequence number, so as to enable the receiver to determine the phase rotation sequence of the data signal in accordance with the phase rotation indication information, thereby to descramble the data signal. Alternatively, the data signal may be scrambled in accordance with the scrambling mode corresponding to the phase rotation, and the phase rotation indication information may be used to indicate the phase rotation, e.g., a phase rotation indicator, so as to enable the receiver to determine the phase rotation for the data signal in accordance with the phase rotation indication information, determine the scrambling mode of the data signal in accordance with the phase rotation, and descramble the data signal.

[0051] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, prior to transmitting the control information to the receiver on the physical control channel, the side information transmission method may further include: determining the scrambling mode of the data signal; and determining the phase rotation indication information indicating the scrambling mode of the data signal in accordance with a predetermined mapping relationship between the scrambling modes and the phase rotation indication information.

[0052] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the phase rotation indication information of the data signal may be determined in accordance with the mapping relationship, so as to reliably notify the receiver of the scrambling mode of the data signal. The scrambling mode of the data signal may be determined before or after the data signal has been scrambled, or during a period of scrambling the data signal. In addition, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, a scrambling mode with a minimum PAPR may be selected from a plurality of supported scrambling modes so as to scramble each data signal, thereby to reduce the PAPR for the transmission system.

[0053] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the step of transmitting the side information to the receiver on the physical control channel may include transmitting a reference signal to the receiver on the physical control channel, and the reference signal may at least include the side information.

[0054] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the side information may be transmitted to the receiver through the reference signal, so it is unnecessary to modify or adjust the transmission mechanism or protocol between the receiver and the transmitter, e.g., it is unnecessary to transmit the side information through any other signaling. As a result, it is able to reduce the power consumption.

[0055] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the reference signal may be a Demodulation Reference Signal (DMRS).

[0056] It should be appreciated that, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, the reference signal may alternatively be another reference signal other than DMRS, which will not be particularly defined herein.

[0057] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the side information may include cyclic shift information implicitly indicating the scrambling mode of the data signal.

[0058] Identically, the cyclic shift information may be used to indicate the scrambling mode of one or K data signals. Because the scrambling mode of the data signal is indicated by the cyclic shift information in the reference signal, it is unnecessary to modify or adjust the transmission mechanism or protocol between the receiver and the transmitter, e.g., it is unnecessary to transmit the side information through any other signaling. As a result, it is able to reduce the power consumption. For example, in a scenario where the initial data is divided into K data signal blocks, when K=N=2, the cyclic shift information may have a value selected from a1, a2, a3 and a4, so as to indicate the scrambling mode of the data signal block. In addition, the receiver may receive the cyclic shift information in a blind detection manner, so as to determine the scrambling mode of the data signal and descramble the data signal.

[0059] In addition, in the scenario where the initial data is divided into K data signal blocks, each data signal block may be transmitted through one carrier (tone), so there is a relationship between the cyclic shift information in the DMRS for the physical control channel and the scrambling between the carriers for the physical data channel, i.e., the cyclic shift information in the DMRS may be used to indicate the scrambling between the carriers for the physical data channel to the receiver.

[0060] In addition, an uplink data signal may be further scrambled, and then transmitted through a cyclic prefix orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing waveform, so as to effectively reduce the PAPR.

[0061] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, prior to transmitting the reference signal to the receiver on the physical control channel, the side information transmission method may further include: determining the scrambling mode of the data signal; and determining the cyclic shift information indicating the scrambling mode of the data signal in accordance with a predetermined mapping relationship between the scrambling modes and the cyclic shift information.

[0062] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the cyclic shift information of the data signal may be determined in accordance with the mapping relationship, so it is able to reliably notify the receiver of the scrambling mode of the data signal.

[0063] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, prior to determining the cyclic shift information indicating the scrambling mode of the data signal in accordance with the predetermined mapping relationship between the scrambling modes and the cyclic shift information, the side information transmission method may further include acquiring high-layer signaling including at least one cyclic shift information. The step of determining the cyclic shift information indicating the scrambling mode of the data signal in accordance with the predetermined mapping relationship between the scrambling modes and the cyclic shift information may include: selecting cyclic shift information indicating the scrambling mode of the data signal from the at least one cyclic shift information in accordance with the predetermined mapping relationship between the scrambling modes and the cyclic shift information.

[0064] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the step of acquiring the high-layer signaling may include acquiring the high-layer signaling from the receiver or the other network side device, e.g., the other base station or core network device, which will not be particularly defined herein. The cyclic shift information is configured by the receiver through the high-layer signaling, so it is able indicate the scrambling mode of the data signal through the at least one cyclic shift information in an entire cell or a certain coverage range. In this regard, it is able for the receiver to identify the data signal more easily without any additional identification policy, thereby to reduce the complexity of the transmission system.

[0065] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the side information transmission method may further include Step 303 of reporting capability information to the receiver. The capability information may be at least used to indicate whether the transmitter supports a target mode for reducing the PAPR, and the target mode may be a mode in which the PAPR is reduced through the transmission of the side information on the physical control channel.

[0066] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the capability information may be reported to the receiver, so as to indicate whether the transmitter supports the target mode for reducing the PAPR, i.e., whether the transmitter supports the mode for reducing the PAPR mentioned in the embodiments of the present disclosure. In this regard, the data signal may be transmitted between the transmitter and the receiver using the method in the embodiments of the present disclosure only when the transmitter supports the target mode, so as to prevent the waste of transmission resources for the data signal when the transmitter does not support the target mode.

[0067] In addition, the capability information may be pre-stored in the transmitter, or acquired by temporarily identifying the capability of the transmitter during a reporting process of the transmitter. The capability information may be UE waveform capability information.

[0068] In addition, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, an order of Step 303 and Steps 301-302 will not be particularly defined. For example, as shown in Fig.3, Step 303 may be performed subsequent to Steps 301-302. It should be appreciated that, Step 303 may also be performed prior to Steps 301-302, or Step 303 and Steps 301-302 may be performed simultaneously, which will not be particularly defined herein.

[0069] In a possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the capability information may include UE capability information and first bit information. The first bit information may be used to indicate whether the transmitter supports the target mode for reducing the PAPR. In another possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the capability information may include indication information indicating whether the transmitter supports an uplink cyclic prefix orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (CP-OFDM) waveform. When the indication information indicates that the transmitter supports the uplink CP-OFDM waveform, the indication information may be further used to indicate that the transmitter supports the target mode for reducing the PAPR. When the indication information indicates that the transmitter does not support the uplink CP-OFDM waveform, the indication information may be further used to indicate that the transmitter does not support the target mode for reducing the PAPR. In yet another possible embodiment of the present disclosure, the capability information may include the indication information indicating whether the transmitter supports the uplink CP-OFDM waveform and second bit information, and the second bit information may be used to indicate whether the transmitter supports the target mode for reducing the PAPR.

[0070] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the capability information may include the UE capability information and the first bit information, and the first bit information may include 1 bit. For example, "1" may be used to indicate that the transmitter supports the target mode for reducing the PAPR, and "0" may be used to indicate that the transmitter does not support the target mode for reducing the PAPR.

As a result, it is able for the transmitter to reliably notify the receiver of the scrambling mode of the data signal. In addition, it is able for the receiver to descramble the data signal in accordance with the scrambling mode indicated by the side information, thereby to reduce the PAPR for the data transmission system. Further, through reporting the capability information, it is able to prevent the waste of transmission resources for the data signal when the transmitter does not support the target mode, so as to save the transmission resources.
