Alternatively, the wireless communication system 100 may include a plurality of network devices and may include other number of terminal devices within the coverage of each network device.

[0103] It should be understood that the terms "system" and "network" are used interchangeably herein. The term "and/or" in this context is merely an association describing associated objects, indicating that there may be three relationships. For example, A and/or B may indicate respectively three situations that: A exists separately, both A and B exist, and B exists separately. In addition, the symbol "/" herein generally indicates that the associated objects have an "or" relationship.

[0104] In a 5G system, the network device may send a SS burst set including a plurality of Synchronization Signal Blocks to the terminal device, and each SS block includes a Primary Synchronization Signal (PSS), a Secondary Synchronization Signal (SSS), a Physical Broadcasting Channel (PBCH). Moreover, the frequency position of the SS block within the system bandwidth is not limited to the central frequency point position of the system bandwidth. The terminal device searches for the SS block in the system bandwidth to acquire time-frequency synchronization, acquire PBCH information, and perform radio resource management (RRM) measurement.

[0105] The 5G system can support a broadband component carrier with a large bandwidth, such as a broadband component carrier with a bandwidth of 400 MHz or even 1 GHz. A plurality of SS blocks may be transmitted in the frequency domain within the broadband member carrier. The future 5G system may support transmission of a plurality of SS blocks in the frequency domain within the broadband component carrier. The terminal may access the system by searching for any one SS block in the plurality of SS blocks.

[0106] Based on this, an embodiment of the present application provides a solution for frequency domain resource allocation, band part configuration, and/or reference signal transmission for a terminal device in the case where a plurality of synchronization signal blocks exist on a bandwidth component carrier.

[0107] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the system bandwidth may include a plurality of band parts (BP).

[0108] Optionally, the bandwidth sizes of the plurality of band parts may be the same or different.

[0109] Optionally, when the bandwidth sizes of the plurality of band parts are different, the plurality of band parts may not overlap at all. Alternatively, a small band part falls into a larger band part, and the center frequency point of the small band part and the center frequency point of the large band part may overlap or may not overlap.

[0110] Optionally, two adjacent band parts of the plurality of band parts may have no gap and no overlap. Alternatively, two adjacent band parts may partially overlap.

[0111] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the frequency domain resources allocated by the frequency domain resource allocation may be a frequency domain resources in the configured band part, and the allocated frequency domain resources may be counted by a frequency domain resource unit, for example, frequency domain resources occupied by a Physical Resource Block (PRB).

[0112] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the frequency domain resource allocation may be used for data transmission of the terminal device. The network device may allocate the frequency domain resources according to the data volume to be transmitted by the terminal device.

[0113] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the band part configured for the terminal device may be semi-static, and the network device may configure the band part for the terminal device according to the capability of the terminal device.

[0114] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the corresponding band part may be configured for the terminal device according to the data volume of the terminal device, for example, a small data volume transmission may configure a smaller band part, a large data volume transmission may configure a larger band part or even full bandwidth

[0115] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the band part configuration and/or the frequency domain resource allocation performed by the terminal device may refer to the synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device. A detailed description will be made below in conjunction with the method 200 shown in Fig. 2.

[0116] Fig. 2 is a schematic flowchart of a wireless communication method 200 according to an embodiment of the present application. As shown in Fig. 2, the method 200 includes at least some of the following contents.

[0117] In 210, the network device receives a first message sent by the terminal device, where the first message indicates a first synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device.

[0118] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the first message may indicate, explicitly or implicitly, the first synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device.

[0119] In an implementation, the first message carries an index of the first synchronization signal block.

[0120] Specifically, a plurality of SS blocks are configured in the network, and after the terminal device finds one of the SS blocks by searching, the terminal device may acquire the index of the SS block. Then, the terminal device may report the index of the SS block found by the terminal through signaling. The signaling may be a Radio Resource Control (RRC) connection request.

[0121] Optionally, the network device may notify the terminal device of index information of the SS block in the frequency in advance through a system message, such as binding with the SS block.

[0122] In an implementation, the first message indicates the first synchronization signal block to the network device through the occupied resource.

[0123] Specifically, in an embodiment of the present application, the terminal device may determine a resource for sending the first message, according to the detected first synchronization signal block, and indicate the synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device to the network device through the resource for sending the first message. The network device may determine the synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device, according to the resource for sending the first message.

[0124] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the terminal device may determine the resource for sending the first message, according to a correspondence between resources occupied by a plurality of first messages and a plurality of synchronization signal blocks. Correspondingly, the network device may determine the synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device, according to the correspondence between the resources occupied by the plurality of first messages and the plurality of synchronization signal blocks, and the resource for receiving the first message.

[0125] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device may indicate, to the terminal device, a correspondence between the resources occupied by the plurality of the first messages and the plurality of synchronization signal blocks. Optionally, the correspondence may be broadcast to the terminal device through a broadcast message.

[0126] Optionally, the first message may be a message in a random access procedure, for example, may be MSG1 or MSG3.

[0127] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, when the first message is a random access request message, the first message indicates the synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device to the network device through a carried random access preamble.

[0128] Specifically, in an embodiment of the present application, the terminal device may determine the random access preamble according to the detected first synchronization signal block, and carry the random access preamble in a random access request message. The network device may determine the synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device according to the random access preamble carried in the random access request message.

[0129] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the terminal device may determine, according to the correspondence between the plurality of random access preambles and the plurality of synchronization signal blocks, a random access preamble corresponding to the detected synchronization signal block. Correspondingly, the network device may determine, according to the correspondence between the plurality of random access preambles and the plurality of synchronization signal blocks, and the received random access preamble, the synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device.

[0130] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device may indicate, to the terminal device, a correspondence between the plurality of random access preambles and the plurality of synchronization signal blocks. Optionally, the correspondence may be broadcast to the terminal device through a broadcast message.

[0131] In 220, according to the first synchronization signal block, the network device performs frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device.

[0132] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device performs frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device according to a frequency point occupied by the first synchronization signal block.

[0133] Optionally, the frequency point occupied by the synchronization signal block mentioned in the embodiment of the present application may be a center frequency point, an upper frequency point or a lower frequency point occupied by the synchronization signal block.

[0134] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device may determine a reference point according to the frequency point occupied by the first synchronization signal block; according to the reference point, the network device performs frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device.

[0135] In an implementation, the network device may determine the frequency point occupied by the first synchronization signal block as the reference point.

[0136] In an implementation, the network device may determine a second synchronization signal block according to a frequency point occupied by the first synchronization signal block; the network device may determine the reference point according to a frequency point occupied by the second synchronization signal block.

[0137] Specifically, the network device may determine the second synchronization signal block when it is found that an interval between the first synchronization signal block and the frequency domain resource to be allocated to the terminal device is greater than or equal to a predetermined value. The network device may determine the reference point according to the frequency point occupied by the second synchronization signal block.

[0138] Accordingly, in this implementation, it can be avoided that when the frequency domain resource or the band part are allocated to the terminal device, since a distance between the reference point and the allocated frequency domain resource or the configured band part is too large, too many field are required for indication, the signaling overhead caused is too large.

[0139] Optionally, the network device may determine the frequency point occupied by the second synchronization signal block as a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration.

[0140] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, a reference point (which may be referred to as a second reference point) for frequency domain resource allocation and a reference point (which may be referred to as a first reference point) for band part configuration may be the same, or may also be different reference points.

[0141] For example, the frequency point occupied by the first synchronization signal block may be directly determined as both of a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation and a reference point for band part configuration.

[0142] For example, the network device may determine a frequency point occupied by the first synchronization signal block as a reference point for band part configuration, and determine a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation based on the configured band part. Determining a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation based on the configured band part may be: determining a frequency point occupied by a synchronization signal block closest to the configured band part as a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation, or determining a synchronization signal block from synchronization signal blocks having a frequency domain distance from the configured band part that is less than or equal to a predetermined value, and determining a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation based on the determined synchronization signal block.

[0143] For example, the frequency point occupied by the second synchronization signal block may be determined as a reference point for band part configuration, and a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation may be determined based on the configured band part. Determining the reference point for frequency domain resource allocation based on the configured band part may be: determining a frequency point occupied by the synchronization signal block closest to the configured band part as a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation, or, determining a synchronization signal block from synchronization signal blocks having a frequency domain distance from the configured band part that is less than or equal to a predetermined value, and a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation is determined based on the determined synchronization signal block.

[0144] For ease of understanding, a detailed description will be made below with reference to Fig. 3 as an example.

[0145] For example, as shown in Fig. 3, two synchronization signal blocks (SS blocks, SSB) are distributed in the broadband component carrier. If the network device determines that the SSB detected by the terminal device is SSB1, the network device may use the frequency point where the SSB1 is located as a reference point, configure a band part 0 or a band part 1 for the terminal, and perform traffic scheduling (including frequency domain resource allocation) on the terminal device in the band part 0 or the band part 1.

[0146] Alternatively, if the terminal device retrieves a SSB1 and reports the SSB1 to the network device through the foregoing method, but the network device expects to configure a band part 2 for the terminal device. Then, the network device may take the frequency point where the SSB2 is located as a reference point of the terminal device. In this case, the network device may configure the band part 2 for the terminal device and perform service scheduling on the terminal device in the band part 2 based on the frequency point where the SSB1 is located as the reference point.

[0147] Through such an operation, on the one hand, it can provide flexible configuration of band part for operation on the terminal and the frequency reference point for flexible resource allocation, and on the other hand, since the network can reduce the frequency distance between the frequency reference point and the actual allocated frequency resource by selecting a frequency reference point, it can effectively reduce the overhead on resource indication signaling in the downlink control channel.

[0148] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, when determining that the reference point for band part configuration or frequency domain resource allocation is based on the frequency point occupied by the second synchronization signal block, since the synchronization signal block on which the reference point is determined is changed, the reference point for band part configuration or frequency domain resource allocation may be indicated to the terminal device. Indicating the reference point to the terminal device may be directly notifying the frequency point occupied by the reference point to the terminal device, or notifying the terminal device of the second synchronization signal block based on which the reference point is determined. The indication information may be carried in the random access response message (in this case, the first message may be a random access request message), or carried in RRC dedicated signaling (for example, a RRC connection setup response message, and in this case, the first message may be a RRC connection setup request message).

[0149] Optionally, the RRC dedicated signaling in the embodiment of the present application includes a RRC connection setup command or a RRC reconfiguration command.

[0150] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device may send information, where the information indicates a frequency domain relationship between the plurality of synchronization signal blocks, where the plurality of synchronization signal blocks include the first synchronization signal block and the second synchronization signal block.

[0151] Based on this, the terminal device may determine the frequency occupied by the second synchronization signal block according to the frequency domain relationship and the frequency occupied by the first synchronization signal block. If the network device notifies the terminal device that the synchronization signal block based on which the reference point is determined is the second synchronization signal block, the terminal device may determine a reference point for the network device to perform frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device based on the same rules as the network device.

[0152] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, when the terminal device does not change the synchronization signal block that directly determines the reference point, indication information may also be sent to the terminal device, to indicate the reference point for the network device to perform frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device. Notifying the reference point to the terminal device may be directly notifying the frequency point occupied by the reference point to the terminal device, or may be sending a confirmation message to the terminal device that the network device determines the reference point based on the synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device. The indication information may be carried in a random access response message (in this case, the first message may be a random access request message), or carried in RRC dedicated signaling (for example, a RRC connection setup response message, in this case the first message may be RRC Connection Setup Request message).

[0153] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device sends information to the terminal device, where the information indicates: an allocated resource size and/or an offset from the reference point, and/or, a number of configured band parts and/or an offset from the reference point. Correspondingly, the terminal device may determine, according to the information sent by the network device and the reference point, a frequency domain resource and/or a configured band part allocated by the network device to the terminal device.

[0154] The offset of the allocated resource with respect to the reference point may be an offset of the upper frequency point of the allocated resource with respect to the reference point, an offset of the center frequency point of the allocated resource with respect to the reference point, or a lower frequency point of the allocated resource with respect to the reference point.

[0155] The offset of the configured band part with respect to the reference point may be an offset of the upper frequency point of the configured band part with respect to the reference point, an offset of the central frequency point of the configured band part with respect to the reference point, or a lower frequency point of the configured band part with respect to the reference point.

[0156] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device performs frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device according to capability information of the terminal device and/or a current service condition of the network.

[0157] For example, the network device may perform frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device, by also considering the capability information of the terminal device, the data volume to be transmitted by the terminal device, and/or the occupancy of each bandwidth and/or resource by other terminal devices (for considering load balancing).

[0158] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device may send a reference signal to the terminal device based on a third reference point.

[0159] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device sends a reference signal to one side of the frequency, by taking the third reference point as a starting point.

[0160] Alternatively, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device may send a reference signal to both sides of the frequency based on the reference point.

[0161] Alternatively, when no reference signal is required to be sent in a frequency range starting from the third reference point, it may be assumed that the reference signal is still sent by taking the third reference point as a starting point, but not to be sent in the frequency range, and the rest part of the reference signal is sent in other frequency ranges.

[0162] For example, the frequency position of the third reference point is at 20 MHz, and the complete reference signal sent by the network device has to occupy 20 MHz, and the frequency point allocated for the terminal is in the frequency range of 0-10 MHz. One method is to send a reference signal in the range of 0-20 MHz. The second method is that, since in a specific scenario, no reference sequence is required to be sent in the range of 10 MHz-20 MHz (if there is no data and reference signal are required to be sent within the bandwidth), then, a reference sequence part a (which originally occupies 10 MHz-20 MHz) constituting the reference signal may be no longer sent, and a reference signal part b in the reference signal is sent in the range of 0 MHz-10 MHz, wherein the reference signal part a and the reference signal b form the complete reference signal.

[0163] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the terminal device may receive the reference signal within a configured bandwidth range.

[0164] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the terminal device may determine the reference signal part corresponding to the band part as a local sequence according to the third reference point of the reference signal sent by the network device and the configured band part, receive the reference signal in the configured bandwidth portion, and perform channel measurement through the local sequence and the received reference signals, to obtain corresponding channel quality

[0165] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device may send information to the terminal device to notify the third reference point.

[0166] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the third reference point may be the same reference point as the first reference point and/or the second reference point.

[0167] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the third reference point may be notified to the terminal device through a broadcast message. In this case, the terminal devices in the range of the broadcast message may share the same third reference point.

[0168] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the third reference point may be notified to the terminal device through a random access response message or a RRC dedicated signaling (a RRC connection setup response message), and in this case, the plurality of terminal devices corresponding to the third reference point may be the same or may be different.

[0169] Accordingly, in the embodiment of the present application, the network device can perform frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device referring to the synchronization signal block currently detected by the terminal device, thereby implementing flexible frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration.

[0170] It should be understood that, although most of the embodiments in the present application describe a reference point for determining frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration according to a synchronization signal block, the embodiment of the present application is not limited thereto. For example, the network device may determine the working condition of the terminal device according to the synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device, and perform frequency domain resource allocation and/or system bandwidth configuration according to the working condition.

[0171] Fig. 4 is a schematic flowchart of a wireless communication method 300 according to an embodiment of the present application. As shown in Fig. 4, the method includes at least part of the following contents.

[0172] In 310, the network device sends first information, where the first information indicates a reference point for the network device to perform frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device. Optionally, the first information is carried in a system broadcast message, a random access response message, or a RRC dedicated signaling.

[0173] In 320, according to the reference point, the network device performs frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration on the terminal device.

[0174] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the reference point for the network device to perform the band part configuration on the terminal device is a first reference point, and the reference point for the network device to perform frequency domain resource allocation on the terminal device is a second reference point.

[0175] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the first reference point and the second reference point are the same reference point; or the first reference point and the second reference point are different reference points.

[0176] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the first information indicates the first reference point and the second reference point.

[0177] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the first information indicates the first reference point; the band part is configured according to the first reference point; and the second reference point is determined according to the configured band part; the frequency domain resource allocation is performed according to the second reference point. The second reference point may be a frequency point occupied by the synchronization signal block closest to the configured band part.

[0178] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, according to the third reference point, the network device sends a reference signal to the terminal device.

[0179] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device sends information to the terminal device, where the information indicates the reference point for sending a reference signal to the terminal device. The information is optionally carried in a system broadcast message, a random access response message, or a RRC dedicated signaling.

[0180] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, one of the reference points is a frequency point occupied by one of the plurality of synchronization signal blocks.

[0181] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, according to the reference point, combining the capability information of the terminal device and/or the current service condition of the network, frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration are performed on the terminal device.

[0182] Optionally, the configured frequency domain resource and/or band part is used to send a paging message to the terminal device.

[0183] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, the network device may determine a reference point for frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration for the terminal device, according to the type of the terminal device.

[0184] For different types of terminals, the network device may select different SSBs as reference points for paging message transmission. For example, as shown in Fig. 5, for a terminal with a bandwidth less than or equal to 20 MHz, the network device may select an SSB with an index of 1 as a reference point for sending a paging message, to send a paging message with a narrow band. For a terminal with a bandwidth greater than 20 MHz, the network device may select an SSB with an index of 2 as a reference point for sending a paging message, to send a paging message with a broad band.

[0185] Optionally, in an embodiment of the present application, according to the third reference point, the network device sends a reference signal to the terminal device.

[0186] Optionally, the network device sends information to the terminal device, where the information indicates the third reference point for sending the reference signal to the terminal device.

[0187] Accordingly, in the embodiment of the present application, the reference point for frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration is indicated by the network device to the terminal device, and the reference point can be flexibly configured, instead of adopting a fixed reference point of the system. In addition, it can solve the problem that when the system bandwidth is large, since the central frequency point of the system bandwidth is constantly taken as a reference point, it requires a longer field for indicating the allocated frequency domain resource and/or the configured band part to the terminal device and thus increases signaling overhead. Moreover, the reference point indicated by the network device for frequency domain resource allocation and/or band part configuration may be applicable to a scenario in which a plurality of synchronization signal blocks exist.

[0188] Fig. 6 is a schematic flowchart of a wireless communication method 400 according to an embodiment of the present application. As shown in Fig. 6, the method includes at least some of the following contents.

[0189] In 410, the network device sends the first information, where the first information indicates a first reference point for the network device to send a reference signal to a first terminal device.

[0190] In 420, the network device sends the reference signal to the first terminal device according to the first reference point.

[0191] Optionally, the first information is carried in a system broadcast message, and the first terminal device includes a terminal device in the coverage of the network device.

[0192] Optionally, the first message is carried in a random access response message or a radio resource control RRC dedicated signaling.

[0193] Optionally, the network device sends second information to a second terminal device, where the second information indicates a second reference point for the network device to send a reference signal to a first terminal device; and the network device sends the reference signal to the second terminal device according to the second reference point.

[0194] Optionally, the first reference point is the same as the second reference point. Or alternatively, the first reference point is different from the second reference point.

[0195] Optionally, one of the reference points is a frequency point occupied by one of the plurality of synchronization signal blocks.

[0196] Accordingly, in the embodiment of the present application, the network device indicates the reference point for sending the reference signal to the terminal device, and thus configuration of the reference point can be flexibly performed, and the reference point indicated by the network device for sending the reference signal can be applied to the situation of a plurality of synchronization signal blocks.

[0197] Further, different terminal devices may use the same reference point for the reference signals, so as to multiplex the same reference signal sent by the network device; or, different terminals may also use different reference points for the reference signals, so as to send different reference signals for different terminals. This method can achieve flexibility in sending a reference signal.

[0198] Fig. 7 is a schematic flowchart of a wireless communication method 500 according to an embodiment of the present application. As shown in Fig. 7, the wireless communication method 500 includes at least some of the following contents.

[0199] In 510, the terminal device sends a first message to the network device, where the first message indicates a first synchronization signal block detected by the terminal device.
