DETAILED DESCRIPTION



[0026] The technical solutions in the embodiments of the present application will be clearly and completely described in the following with reference to the drawings in the embodiments of the present application.

[0027] It should be understood that the technical solutions of the embodiments of the present application may be applied to various communication systems, such as a Global System of Mobile communication (GSM) system, a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) system, and a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) system, a Long Term Evolution (LTE) system, a LTE Frequency Division Duplex (FDD) system, a LTE Time Division Duplex (TDD), a Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS), a Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX), a New Radio (NR), a future 5G system or the like.

[0029] A terminal device in the embodiments of the present application may refer to user equipment (UE), an access terminal, a subscriber unit, a subscriber station, a mobile station, a mobile platform, a remote station, a remote terminal, a mobile device, a user terminal, a terminal, a wireless communication device, a user agent, or a user apparatus. The access terminal may be a cellular phone, a cordless phone, a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) phone, a Wireless Local Loop (WLL) station, a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), a handheld device with a wireless communication capability, a computing device or other processing devices connected to a wireless modem, an in-vehicle device, a wearable device, a terminal device in a future 5G network, or a terminal device in a future evolution of a Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN), etc., which is not limited in the embodiments of the present application.

[0030] The network device in the embodiments of the present application may be a device for communicating with the terminal device. The network device may be a Base Transceiver Station (BTS) in the GSM or the CDMA, or a base station (NodeB, NB) in the WCDMA system, or an Evolutional NodeB (eNB or eNodeB) in the LTE system, or a wireless controller in a Cloud Radio Access Network (CRAN) scenario, or the network device may be a relay station, an access point, an in-vehicle device, a wearable device, and a network device in a future 5G network or a network device in a future evolved PLMN network, which is not limited in the embodiments of the present application.

[0031] FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram of an application scenario of an embodiment of the present application. A communication system in FIG. 1 may include a terminal device 10 and a network device 20. The network device 20 is configured to provide communication service for the terminal device 10 and make the terminal device 10 access the core network. The terminal device 10 may access the network by searching for a synchronization signal, a broadcast signal, and the like transmitted by the network device 20, thereby performing communication with the network. Arrows shown in FIG. 1 may represent uplink/downlink transmissions by cellular links between the terminal device 10 and the network device 20.

[0032] In order to facilitate the understanding of the embodiments of the present application, some elements in the Evolved Packet System (EPS) bearer service architecture are briefly described in conjunction with FIG. 2. As shown in FIG. 2, the network architecture mainly includes an Evolved-Universal Mobile Telecommunication System Terrestrial Radio Access Network (E-UTRAN) and an Evolved Packet Core (EPC). The EPC includes a Serving Gateway (S-GW) and a Packet Data Network Gateway (P-GW). In the EPS bearer service architecture, the end-to-end service may be decomposed into two parts: the EPS bearer and the external bearer. one Evolved Radio Access Bearer (E-RAB) is used to transmit a packet of one EPS bearer between the UE and the evolved EPC, and the E-RAB and EPS bearer are in a one-to-one correspondence. One radio bearer is used to transmit a packet of one E-RAB bearer between the UE and the eNodeB, and the radio bearer and the E-RAB/EPS bearer are in a one-to-one correspondence. One S1 bearer is used to transmit a packet of one E-RAB bearer between the eNodeB and the S-GW. One S5/S8 bearer is used to transmit a packet of one EPS bearer between the S-GW and the P-GW, and the external bearer is used to transmit information between the EPC and a peer entity.

[0033] In the LTE system, the RRC state of the UE mainly includes an RRC idle state and an RRC connection state. The RRC idle state is such a state: there is an S5/S8 bearer, there is no radio bearer and S1 bearer, the core network side reserves the UE context, the eNodeB and the UE do not reserve each other's context, and the terminal reserves an unique identifier (which is generally a Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity (TMSI)) within the Time Advance (TA). The UE in the RRC idle state does not interact data with the network, does not have a Discontinuous Reception (DRX) process configured by a Non-access stratum (NAS), system information broadcast and paging, neighbor cell measurement, and the mobility of cell reselection, and does not have the behavior of reporting a measurement report and the like. The RRC connection state is such a state: there are the S5/S8 bearer, the S1 bearer, and the radio bearer; the core network, eNodeB, and UE all reserve corresponding contexts, and the eNodeB allocates an access stratum (AS) identifier (usually a Cell Radio Network Temporary Identifier (C-RNTI)). The UE in the RRC connection state may exchange data with the network, and may have the DRX configured by the AS, the mobility of the handover, and the behavior of reporting the channel measurement to the network side and the like.

[0034] In the 5G system, a third state, that is, an RRC inactive state, is introduced. The RRC inactive state is such a state: there are the S5/S8 bearer, the S1 bearer, and a part of the radio bearer, the core network, the eNodeB, and the UE all reserve the corresponding context, and the eNodeB allocates the access stratum AS identifier (usually a Resume identification (ID)). The UE in the RRC inactive state has the mobility of cell reselection, has no measurement report, and may perform small data transmission and reception, and there may be DRX configured by the AS.

[0035] FIG. 3 shows a schematic block diagram of a method 100 for wireless communication in accordance with an embodiment of the present application. As shown in FIG. 3, the method 100 includes some or all of the following.

[0036] In S110, the terminal device obtains a mobility control parameter for performing cell selection and reselection in an inactive state.

[0037] It should be understood that the inactive state involved in the embodiments of the present application is also the above RRC active state. The terminal device may obtain the mobility control parameter for performing cell selection and reselection in the inactive state, for example, through RRC dedicated signaling or a system broadcast message. The mobility control parameter may include at least one of the following parameters: a decision parameter of a mobile state of the terminal device, a scaling parameter of each parameter of a mobile state of the terminal device, and a frequency-based cell reselection priority parameter. The so called mobile state of the terminal device may be defined as the number of cell reselections within a predetermined time, and may include a high-speed mobile state, a medium-speed mobile state, and a normal mobile state. The decision parameter of the mobile state of the terminal device may be, for example, a time window TCRmax for indicating that the terminal device enters the medium-speed or high-speed mobile state decision, or a cell reselection number threshold NCR_H for indicating the high-speed mobile state decision, or a cell reselection number threshold NCR_M for indicating the medium-speed mobile state decision, or a time window TCRmaxHyst for indicating that the terminal device leaves the medium-speed or high-speed mobile state decision. The scaling parameter is some of the secondary parameters used in the cell selection and reselection parameters, and in fact, it is a value. Each parameter of the mobile state of the mobile device may be multiplied by a scaling factor and then used in the decision of cell selection or reselection to reduce the impact of moving speed on the mobile performance of the mobile device. The frequency-based cell reselection priority parameter refers to an absolute priority between different frequencies, and is a parameter needing to be considered by the terminal device when performing cell selection and reselection.

[0038] Optionally, in the embodiments of the present application, the obtaining, by the terminal device, the mobility control parameter for performing cell selection and reselection in the inactive state includes: obtaining, by the terminal device, the mobility control parameter configured for the inactive state from RRC dedicated signaling sent by a network device.

[0039] The network device may specifically configure a specific mobility control parameter for the terminal device in the RRC inactive state to perform cell selection and reselection when the terminal device is in the RRC inactive state, and by configuring the specific mobility control parameter for the terminal device in the RRC inactive state, the mobility control of the terminal device can be more accurate. The network device may indicate the mobility control parameter to the terminal device through RRC dedicated signaling.

[0040] Further, the terminal device may receive the radio resource control RRC connection release message sent by the network device, where the RRC connection release message is used to instruct the terminal device to enter the inactive state, and the RRC connection release message carries the mobility control parameter; the terminal device may obtain the mobility control parameter configured for the inactive state from the RRC connection release message.

[0041] When the terminal device is in the RRC active state, if the service is not performed temporarily, the network device may instruct the terminal device to enter the inactive state. For example, an indication or a release cause value may be added to the RRC connection release message to instruct the terminal device to enter the inactive state. Meanwhile, the mobility control parameter for the inactive state configured by the network device for the terminal device may be carried in the RRC connection release message.

[0042] Optionally, in the embodiments of the present application, the terminal device obtains the mobility control parameter for recovering a radio resource control RRC connection in the inactive state, including: obtaining, by the terminal device, the mobility control parameter from a system broadcast message.

[0043] If the terminal device can obtain the mobility control parameter from the RRC dedicated signaling, the terminal device may perform cell selection and reselection using the mobility control parameter obtained in the RRC dedicated signaling; and if the terminal device cannot obtain the mobility control parameter from the RRC dedicated signaling, the terminal device may perform cell selection and reselection using the mobility control parameter obtained from the system broadcast message.

[0044] Optionally, in the embodiments of the present application, the method further includes: if the terminal device obtains the mobility control parameter configured for the inactive state from the system broadcast message, the mobility control parameter configured for the inactive state is used to perform cell selection and reselection when the terminal device is in the inactive state; or if the terminal device does not obtain the mobility control parameter configured for the inactive state from the system broadcast message, the mobility control parameter configured for an idle state is used to perform cell selection and reselection when the terminal device is in the inactive state. Specifically, the system broadcast may broadcast the mobility control parameter configured for the idle state, and may also broadcast the mobility control parameter configured for the inactive state.

[0045] Optionally, in the embodiments of the present application, the method further includes: when the terminal device returns from the inactive state to the idle state, the terminal device receives indication information sent by the network device, where the indication information is used to indicate the mobility control parameter used when the terminal device is in the idle state, and the mobility control parameter used when the terminal device is in the idle state is the mobility control parameter configured for the inactive state or the mobility control parameter configured for the idle state.

[0046] When the terminal device returns from the inactive state to the idle state, the network device may instruct the terminal device to continue to use the mobility control parameter configured for the inactive state or use the mobility control parameter configured for the idle state. Specifically, the indication information is carried in a signaling indicating that the terminal device transits from the inactive state to the idle state or the system broadcast message.

[0047] FIG. 4 shows a schematic block diagram of a method 200 for wireless communication in an embodiment of the present application. As shown in FIG. 4, the method 200 includes some or all of the following.

[0048] In S210, the network device configures the mobility control parameter for the inactive state for the terminal device.

[0049] Therefore, the method of the embodiments of the present application is advantageous for controlling the mobility of the terminal device in an inactive state.

[0050] Optionally, in the embodiments of the present application, the configuring, by a network device, the mobility control parameter for an inactive state for a terminal device includes: sending, by the network device, the mobility control parameter for the inactive state to the terminal device through a radio resource control RRC dedicated signaling or a system broadcast message.

[0053] Optionally, in the embodiments of the present application, the indication information is carried in a signaling indicating that the terminal device transits from the inactive state to the idle state or the system broadcast message.

[0055] It should also be understood that the interaction between the network device and the terminal device and related characteristics, functions, and the like described at the network device correspond to related characteristics and functions of the terminal device. That is, what message is sent by the terminal device to the network device, and the network device receives the corresponding message from the terminal device.

For example, A and/or B may indicate that there exist three cases: A exists separately, both A and B exist, and B exists separately.
