Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION



[0001] This application claims a priority to Chinese Patent Application No. 201710487717.7 filed on June 23, 2017, a disclosure of which is incorporated in its entirety by reference herein.

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0002] Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to the field of communication technologies, in particular to an indication method, a base station and enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) user equipment (UE).

BACKGROUND



[0003] Compared with traditional mobile communication systems, fifth-generation (5G) mobile communication system has to adapt to more diverse application scenarios and service demands. The main application scenarios of the New Radio (NR) include the eMBB, the massive machine type of communication (mMTC), and the ultra-reliable and low latency communications (URLLC). These scenarios impose demands such as high reliability, low latency, large bandwidth and wide coverage on the system.

[0004] For services in certain scenarios, transmission with low latency and high reliability is required. To satisfy the demand on low latency, reducing the slot length and reducing the loopback latency are effective means. To ensure the highly reliable transmission, it is necessary to consider to adopt some transmit diversity mechanisms, such as time diversity, space diversity or code domain diversity. For the URLLC service, due to its burst characteristic, there may be no service on allocated dedicated transmission resources for a long time. In this scenario, the resource may be idle and the transmission efficiency may be reduced. Therefore, resources may be shared between the URLLC service and the eMBB service.

[0005] However, in some cases, eMBB UE may not aware that potential resources are preempted by URLLC UE, and the eMBB service performance of the eMBB UE will be affected if there is no indication.

For example, it may be a personal communication service (PCS) telephone, cordless telephone, session initiation protocol (SIP) telephone, wireless local loop (WLL) station, personal digital assistant (PDA) or the like. The wireless terminal may also be referred to as a system, a subscriber unit, a subscriber station, a mobile station, a mobile, a remote station, a remote terminal, an access terminal, a user terminal, a user agent, a user device or user equipment, and is not limited herein.

[0020] Referring to Fig.1, a flowchart of an indication method according to an embodiment is illustrated. The method may be performed by a base station, and includes specific step as follows.

[0021] A step 101 includes: sending a preemption indication message to eMBB UE, where the preemption indication message is configured to indicate, to the eMBB UE, an eMBB resource for a previous transmission preempted by other services.

[0022] As for the transmission of the uplink preemption indication, there are following two cases.

[0023] In one case, after the eMBB UE receives an uplink grant, and before the eMBB UE sends the uplink data, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE.

[0024] In the other case, during a period in which the eMBB UE is sending uplink data, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE.

[0025] As for the transmission of the downlink preemption indication, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE, after the downlink data is sent to the eMBB UE and before the eMBB UE sends ACK/NACK information corresponding to the downlink data.

[0026] In the case that resources are shared between the URLLC service and the eMBB service, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE, such that the eMBB UE is aware that the scheduled resources are preempted by the UE with URLLC service, thereby ensuring reliable transmission for the eMBB service and the URLLC service.

[0027] Referring to Fig.2, a flowchart of an indication method according to another embodiment is illustrated. The method may be performed by a base station, and includes specific step as follows.

[0028] A step 201 includes: sending the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE after the eMBB UE receives an uplink grant and before the eMBB UE sends uplink data.

[0029] For example, after the eMBB UE receives an uplink grant (UL grant), and before the eMBB UE sends the uplink data (e.g., a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH)), the preemption indication message is sent via a control channel in X symbols before an n-th slot.

[0030] The X= t1+TA, the t1 is a time taken by UE to decode a preemption indication downlink control information (DCI) that is related to a capability of the eMBB UE, the TA is a timing advance value for the eMBB UE, the n-th slot is a slot in which the eMBB UE sends the uplink data, and the n is a positive integer.

[0031] Referring to Fig.3, the sending of a preemption indication message via a control channel in X symbols before an n-th slot is illustrated.

[0032] In the present embodiment, in the case that resources are shared between the URLLC service and the eMBB service, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE, such that the eMBB UE is aware that the scheduled resources are preempted by the UE with URLLC service, thereby ensuring reliable transmission for the eMBB service and the URLLC service.

[0033] Furthermore, the base station sends the preemption indication message via the control channel in X symbols before the n-th slot, so that the eMBB UE only needs to detect the preemption indication message in a limited number of symbols before the n-th slot, thereby reducing a number of blind detections performed by the eMBB UE.

[0034] Referring to Fig.4, a flowchart of an indication method according to yet another embodiment is illustrated. The method may be performed by a base station, and includes specific step as follows.

[0035] A step 401 includes: sending the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE during a period in which the eMBB UE is sending uplink data.

[0036] Optionally, during the period in which the eMBB UE is sending uplink data, the preemption indication message is sent via the control channel in X symbols before a transmission time instant of the URLLC (low latency high reliability communication) service in the n-th slot.

[0037] The X= t1+TA, the t1 is a time taken by UE to decode a preemption indication downlink control information that is related to a capability of the eMBB UE, the TA is a timing advance value for the eMBB UE, the n-th slot is a slot in which the eMBB UE sends the uplink data, and the n is a positive integer.

[0038] Referring to Fig.5, the sending of a preemption indication message via a control channel in X symbols before a transmission time instant of an URLLC service in an n-th slot is illustrated.

[0039] In the present embodiment, in the case that resources are shared between the URLLC service and the eMBB service, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE, such that the eMBB UE is aware that the scheduled resources are preempted by the UE with URLLC service, thereby ensuring reliable transmission for the eMBB service and the URLLC service.

[0040] Furthermore, the base station sends the preemption indication message via the control channel in X symbols before the transmission time instant of the URLLC service in the n-th slot, so that the eMBB UE only needs to detect the preemption indication message in a limited number X of symbols, thereby reducing the number of blind detections performed by the eMBB UE.

[0041] Referring to Fig.6, a flowchart of an indication method according to yet another embodiment is illustrated. The method may be performed by a base station, and includes specific step as follows.

[0042] A step 601 includes: sending the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE after downlink data is sent to the eMBB UE and before the eMBB UE sends ACK/NACK information corresponding to the downlink data.

[0043] For example, according to a capability of the eMBB UE and/or a size of a transmission block to be sent, the preemption indication message is sent to the eMBB UE in a W-th slot or in a Y-th symbol before transmission of the ACK/NACK information corresponding to the downlink data for the eMBB UE;

[0044] Values of the W and the Y are configured according to a processing capability of the eMBB UE. For example, the values of the W and the Y are determined by the processing capability of the eMBB UE, including a part related to a transport block size (TBS) and/or a part unrelated to the TBS. The eMBB UE detects the preemption indication message on a control channel located between the n-th slot and the (n+k-W)th slot, or the eMBB UE detects the preemption indication message on a control channel located between a control resource symbol of the n-th slot and the Y symbols before the symbol in which the ACK/NACK information is transmitted in the (n+k)th slot.

[0045] Referring to Fig.7, a sending of a preemption indication message after an n-th slot and before an (n+k)th slot is illustrated, where the n-th slot is a slot in which the base station sends downlink data, and the (n+k)th slot is a transmission slot of the ACK/NACK (may be abbreviated as A/N) information corresponding to the downlink data PDSCH received by the eMBB UE.

[0046] In the present embodiment, in the case that resources are shared between the URLLC service and the eMBB service, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE, such that the eMBB UE is aware that the scheduled resources are preempted by the UE with URLLC service, thereby ensuring reliable transmission for the eMBB service and the URLLC service.

[0047] Furthermore, the base station sends the preemption indication message in the W-th slot or in the Y-th symbol before transmission of the ACK/NACK information corresponding to the downlink data for the eMBB UE, so that the eMBB UE only needs to detect the preemption indication message in a limited number of symbols, thereby reducing the number of blind detections performed by the eMBB UE.

[0048] Referring to Fig.8, a flowchart of an indication method according to yet another embodiment is illustrated. The method may be performed by eMBB UE, and includes specific step as follows.

[0049] A step 801 includes: detecting a preemption indication message sent by a base station, where the preemption indication message is configured to indicate, to the eMBB UE, an eMBB resource for a previous transmission preempted by other services.

[0050] As for the transmission of the uplink preemption indication at a base station side, there are following two cases.

[0051] In one case, after the eMBB UE receives the uplink grant, and before the eMBB UE sends the uplink data, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE.

[0052] In the other case, during a period in which the eMBB UE is sending uplink data, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE.

[0053] As for the transmission of the downlink preemption indication at the base station side: after the downlink data is sent to the eMBB UE, and before the eMBB UE sends ACK/NACK information corresponding to the downlink data, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE.

[0054] In the present embodiment, the eMBB UE detects the preemption indication message sent by the base station.

[0055] In the case that resources are shared between the URLLC service and the eMBB service, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE, such that the eMBB UE is aware that the scheduled resources are preempted by the UE with URLLC service, thereby ensuring reliable transmission for the eMBB service and the URLLC service.

[0056] Referring to Fig.9, a flowchart of an indication method according to another embodiment is illustrated. The method may be performed by eMBB UE, and includes specific step as follows.

[0057] A step 901 includes: detecting the preemption indication message sent by the base station after the eMBB UE receives an uplink grant and before the eMBB UE sends uplink data.

[0058] For example, after the eMBB UE receives the uplink grant, and before the eMBB UE sends the uplink data, the preemption indication message directed to an n-th slot is detected in a plurality of symbols before the n-th slot.

[0059] The n-th slot is a slot in which the eMBB UE sends the uplink data, and the n is a positive integer.

[0060] Optionally, the plurality of symbols include Z symbols to X symbols before the n-th slot.

[0061] The X= t1+TA, the t1 is a time taken by UE to decode a preemption indication downlink control information that is related to a capability of the eMBB UE, the TA is a timing advance value for the eMBB UE; and a value of the Z is pre-configured (e.g., specified by a protocol) or configured by a network side, for example, indicated by a signaling.

[0062] For example, if the Z is equal to 3 and the X is equal to 8, the plurality of symbols may be any one selected from the group of 4 symbols, 5 symbols, 6 symbols, and 7 symbols.

[0063] In the present embodiment, in the case that resources are shared between the URLLC service and the eMBB service, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE, such that the eMBB UE is aware that the scheduled resources are preempted by the UE with URLLC service, thereby ensuring reliable transmission for the eMBB service and the URLLC service.

[0064] Furthermore, the eMBB UE only needs to detect the preemption indication message in a limited number of symbols before the n-th slot, thereby reducing the number of blind detections performed by the eMBB UE.

[0065] Referring to Fig.10, a flowchart of an indication method according to yet another embodiment is illustrated, the method may be performed by eMBB UE, and includes specific steps as follows.

[0066] A step 1001 includes: detecting, in X symbols before an n-th slot, the preemption indication message directed to the n-th slot, after the eMBB UE receives the uplink grant and before the eMBB UE sends the uplink data.

[0067] The n-th slot is a slot in which the eMBB UE sends the uplink data, and the n is a positive integer.

[0068] The X= t1+TA, the t1 is a time taken by UE to decode a preemption indication downlink control information that is related to a capability of the eMBB UE, the TA is a timing advance value for the eMBB UE.

[0069] A step 1002 includes: sending the uplink data in the n-th slot in case that the preemption indication message directed to the n-th slot is not received in X symbols before the n-th slot.

[0070] A step 1003 includes: discarding some or all of the uplink data in the n-th slot in case that the preemption indication message directed to the n-th slot is received in the X symbols before the n-th slot.

[0071] In the present embodiment, in the case that resources are shared between the URLLC service and the eMBB service, the base station sends the preemption indication message to the eMBB UE, such that the eMBB UE is aware that the scheduled resources are preempted by the UE with URLLC service, thereby ensuring reliable transmission for the eMBB service and the URLLC service.

[0072] Furthermore, the eMBB UE only needs to detect the preemption indication message in a limited number of symbols before the n-th slot, thereby reducing the number of blind detections performed by the eMBB UE.

[0073] Referring to Fig. 11, a flowchart of an indication method according to yet another embodiment is illustrated. The method may be performed by eMBB UE, and includes specific steps as follows.

[0074] A step 1101 includes: detecting the preemption indication message sent by the base station during a period in which the eMBB UE is sending uplink data.

[0075] With continued reference to Fig. 11, the method further includes a step 1102.

[0076] The step 1102 includes: beginning to discard some or all of the uplink data currently being transmitted from a time instant of an X-th symbol after a time instant at which the preemption indication message is received.

[0077] The X= t1+TA, the t1 is a time taken by UE to decode a preemption indication downlink control information that is related to a capability of the eMBB UE, the TA is a timing advance value for the eMBB UE.

[0078] In the present embodiment, in the case that resources are shared between the URLLC service and the eMBB service, after the preemption indication message is detected, the eMBB UE begins to discard some or all of the uplink data currently being transmitted, thereby ensuring reliable transmission for the eMBB service and the URLLC service.

[0079] Referring to Fig.12, a flowchart of an indication method according to yet another embodiment is illustrated. The method may be performed by eMBB UE, and includes specific steps as follows.

[0080] A step 1201 includes: detecting the preemption indication message sent by the base station after downlink data sent by the base station is received and before the eMBB UE sends ACK or NACK information corresponding to the downlink data.

[0081] With continued reference to Fig.12, the method further includes a step 1202 and a step 1203.

[0082] The step 1202 includes: in case that the preemption indication message sent by the base station is received, decoding the downlink data according to the preemption indication message, and feeding back the ACK or NACK information corresponding to the downlink data.

[0083] The step 1203 includes: in case that the preemption indication message sent by the base station is not received, decoding the downlink data according to scheduling information received in an n-th slot, and feeding back ACK or NACK information.

[0084] The n-th slot is a slot in which the eMBB UE sends the uplink data, and the n is a positive integer.
