Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] Embodiments of the present disclosure relate to the field of communications, and more particularly to a method for data transmission, a terminal device and a network device.

BACKGROUND



[0002] People are having increasing requirements on rates, delays, high mobility and energy efficiency, and services will be diverse and complex in future life.

[0003] To this end, the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) International Organization for Standardization started developing the 5th generation (5G) mobile communication technology. The primary application scenarios of the 5G mobile communication technology include: Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communication (URLLC), and massive Machine-Type Communication (mMTC).

[0004] During early deployment of New Radio (NR), it would be difficult to acquire complete NR coverage. Therefore, typically, a network coverage mode of wide-area coverage with Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and island coverage with NR was employed. Moreover, since LTE is generally deployed below 6 GHz, there is little spectrum below 6 GHz that can be used for the 5G mobile communication technology. Therefore, the application of the spectrum above 6 GHz must be studied for NR. However, the coverage of the high-frequency band is limited, and signals fade quickly in the high-frequency band. In the related art, in order to protect the early LTE investment of a mobile operator, an operation mode of tight interworking between LTE and NR was proposed. In particular, LTE-NR Dual Connection (DC) data transmission is supported by means of band combination, so as to improve system throughput.

[0005] However, when a terminal device operates concurrently in two or more carriers which are in different frequency bands, uplink signals of these carriers may interfere downlink receiving signals of some carriers, reducing the success rate of data transmission.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION



[0054] Fig. 1 illustrates a schematic diagram of an application scenario according to the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0055] As illustrated in Fig. 1, a communication system 1 may include a terminal device 110 and a network device 120. The network device 120 can communicate with the terminal device 110 through an air interface. Multi-service transmission is supported between the terminal device 110 and the network device 120.

[0056] It should be understood that the communication system 100 is illustrated as an example in the embodiments of the present disclosure, but the embodiments of the present disclosure are not limited thereto. That is to say, the technical solutions of the embodiments of the present disclosure can be applied to various communication systems, for example, a Global System of Mobile communication (GSM) system, a Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) system, a Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) system, a General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) system, a Long Term Evolution (LTE) system, an LTE Time Division Duplex (TDD) system and a Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS).

[0057] In addition, various embodiments are described in conjunction with the network device and the terminal device in the present disclosure.

[0058] The network device 120 may be any entity device, at a network side, for sending or receiving a signal. By way of example, the network device may be a user equipment for Machine-Type Communication (MTC), a Base Transceiver Station (BTS) in GSM or CDMA, a NodeB in WCDMA, an Evolved NodeB (eNB or eNodeB) in LTE, a base station device in a 5G network, and so on.

[0059] The terminal device 110 can be any terminal device. In particular, the terminal device 110 can communicate with one or more Core Networks through a Radio Access Network (RAN), and can also be referred to as an access terminal, user equipment (UE), a subscriber unit, a user station, a mobile station, a remote station, a remote terminal, a mobile device, a user terminal, a terminal, a wireless communication device, a user agent or a user device. For example, the terminal device may be a cell phone, a cordless phone, a Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) phone, a Wireless Local Loop (WLL) station, a Personal Digital Assistant (PDA), a hand-held device with a wireless communication function, a computer device or other processing devices connected with a wireless modem, a vehicle-mounted device, a wearable device, a terminal device in 5G network, or the like.

[0060] In a 5G communication system, during early deployment of the New Radio (NR) system, it would be difficult to acquire complete NR coverage. Therefore, typically, a network coverage mode of wide-area coverage with Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and island coverage with NR was employed. Moreover, since LTE is generally deployed below 6 GHz, there is little spectrum below 6 GHz that can be used for the 5G communication.

[0061] In order to solve the above problem, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, LTE-NR dual connection (DC) data transmission is enabled by means of band combination, so as to improve system throughput. However, when a terminal device operates concurrently in two or more carriers which are in different frequency bands, uplink signals of these carriers may interfere downlink receiving signals of some carriers, reducing the success rate of data transmission.

[0062] For example, if a carrier F1 operates in a low-frequency band, and a carrier F2 operates in a high-frequency band, then the following three different types of mutual interference may occur.

[0063] The first type of mutual interference: the carrier F1 and the carrier F2 are both uplink carriers, and the frequency of an intermodulation (IM) signal, of a certain order, of the carrier F1 and the carrier F2 overlaps or partially overlaps with the downlink signal frequency of a carrier F3. In this case, the carriers F1 and F2 produce interference to F3. Here, F3 may be one of the carriers F1 or F2, or may be another carrier different from either F1 or F2 (at this time, the terminal may concurrently operate on more than two carriers). For example, the terminal device is configured with LTE carriers in Band 1 and Band 7, and NR carriers (3400 MHz to 3800 MHz) at the same time, then if the uplink (UL) transmission in Band 7 and the UL transmission of NR are performed concurrently, then 5th order intermodulation generated thereby may affect the sensitivity of a downlink (DL) receiver of Band 1.

[0064] The second type of mutual interference: the carrier F1 is an uplink carrier, the carrier F2 is a downlink carrier, and the multiplied frequency of the carrier F1 overlaps or partially overlaps with the frequency of the carrier F2. Then, the carrier F1 produces harmonic interference to the carrier F2. For example, the bandwidth of LTE Band 3 is 1710 MHz to 1785 MHz, and the 2nd order harmonics thereof ranges from 3420 MHz to 3570 MHz. In this way, if a terminal performs LTE uplink transmission in Band 3 and performs DL receiving in the NR frequency band 3400 MHz to 3800 MHz concurrently, then the 2nd order harmonics may interfere the sensitivity of an NR DL receiver.

[0065] The third type of mutual interference: the carrier F1 is a downlink carrier, the carrier F2 is an uplink carrier, and the multiplied frequency of the carrier F1 overlaps or partially overlaps with the frequency of the carrier F2. Then the carrier F2 produces harmonic mixing interference to F1. For example, the downlink of LTE Band 3 is within 1805 MHz to 1880 MHz, and the 2nd order harmonics thereof ranges from 3610 MHz to 3760 MHz. In this way, if a terminal performs LTE downlink receiving in Band 3 and performs uplink sending in the NR frequency band 3400 MHz to 3800 MHz concurrently, then the 2nd order harmonics of NR may interfere the sensitivity of a LTE DL receiver.

[0066] However, no matter which of the above types the self-interference of the terminal device is, the estimation (MSD) of the severity of the self-interference problem is based on the assumption of 23 dbm (the maximum transmission power of the terminal); and when the terminal device is not operating with the maximum transmission power, the corresponding self-interference may be correspondingly reduced (for the same bandwidth); therefore, the reduction of the transmission power of the interference generation party may alleviate the interference to some extent.

[0067] Therefore, the method for data transmission provided in an embodiment of the present disclosure can effectively improve the success rate of data transmission by controlling an uplink transmission power of a terminal device.

[0068] Fig. 2 illustrates a schematic flowchart of a method for data transmission according to the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0069] As illustrated in Fig. 2, the method includes the following operations.

[0070] At block 210, a network device sends indication information to a terminal device. The indication information is used for the terminal device to determine a first transmission power for uplink data within a target time unit.

[0071] At block 220, the terminal device determines the first transmission power according to the indication information.

[0072] At block 230, the terminal device sends uplink data at the first transmission power within the target time unit.

[0073] Briefly, a terminal device receives indication information; the terminal device determines a first transmission power according to the indication information; and the terminal device sends uplink data to a first network device at the first transmission power within a target time unit.

[0074] It should be understood that the terminal device in the embodiments of the present disclosure is a terminal device that may have self-interference. For the understanding of solutions, hereinafter, a network device for receiving the uplink data from the terminal device is referred to as a first network device, and a network device for sending downlink data to the terminal device is referred to as a second network device.

[0075] In particular, at the same time of sending uplink data to the first network device, the terminal device may receive downlink data from a second network device; at this time, the uplink data produces self-interference to the receiving of the downlink data, thus reducing the performance of downlink data demodulation. In other words, mutual interference is produced between a first channel and a second channel of the terminal device. In other words, the first channel has self-interference.

[0076] In order to solve the above problem, in the embodiments of the present disclosure, indication information sent by a terminal device through a network device enables the terminal device to determine, according to the self-interference condition, a first transmission power for sending uplink data within a target time unit. The performance of downlink data demodulation can be effectively improved, thus improving the success rate of data transmission.

[0077] It should also be understood that, the first transmission power in the embodiments of the present disclosure may be a maximum transmission power (a second transmission power) supported by the terminal device, or may be a limited transmission power (a third transmission power) of the terminal device. The second transmission power is greater than the third transmission power.

[0078] The third transmission power may be any transmission power smaller than the second transmission power. Alternatively, the terminal device may determine the limited maximum transmission power (namely, the third transmission power) according to the anti-interference capability of the terminal device. The limited maximum transmission power is smaller than the maximum transmission power (namely, the second transmission power) supported by the terminal device.

[0079] It should be understood that the anti-interference capability of the terminal device can be a transmission power determined by the terminal device according to the internal interference level of the terminal device. In other word, if the terminal device sends uplink data below the limited maximum transmission power, the level of interference to a receiving end can be reduced to a level that the receiving end can tolerate. That is to say, when the terminal device receives and sends data concurrently, the sending power should be below the limited maximum transmission power, so that it can be ensured that the terminal device can correctly demodulate the received data.

[0080] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, when the terminal sends data at the second transmission power, a high-order modulation and coding strategy (MCS) can be employed, so as to improve the amount of sent uplink data on the basis of ensuring the reliability of the uplink data; and when the terminal sends data at the third transmission power, a low-order modulation and coding strategy (MCS) can be employed to ensure the reliability of uplink data.

[0081] In addition, it should be noted that the indication information in the embodiments of the present disclosure can be information determined by the first network device or the second network device, and can also be information determined through negotiation between the first network device and the second network device. This is not particularly specified in the embodiments of the present disclosure.

[0082] Further, the indication information is interaction information between the first network device and the second network device. That is, the first network device and the second network device need to interact with respect to the indication information. In other words, if the indication information is determined by the first network device, then the first network device needs to send the indication information to the second network device; and if the indication information is determined by the second network device, then the second network device needs to send the indication information to the first network device.

[0083] Exemplary illustration is made hereinafter to the indication information in the embodiments of the present disclosure in conjunction with particular embodiments.

[0084] In one embodiment, the indication information is information of a time division multiplexing mode of the terminal device within the target time unit. That is, the terminal device can determine the first transmission power according to the information of the time division multiplexing mode.

[0085] In particular, the terminal device receives, from the first network device or a second network device, information of a time division multiplexing mode of the terminal device within the target time unit, the second network device being a network device sending downlink data to the terminal device; and the terminal device determines the first transmission power according to the information of the time division multiplexing mode.

[0086] For example, when the target time unit is concurrently used for receiving downlink data and sending uplink data, the first transmission power is smaller than a maximum transmission power supported by the terminal device, or when the target time unit is merely used for sending uplink data, the first transmission power is the maximum transmission power supported by the terminal device.

[0087] In another embodiment, the indication information includes a bitmap, the bitmap includes at least one numeric value, the at least one numeric value is used for the terminal device to determine a transmission power for uplink data within at least one time unit, and the at least one time unit includes the target time unit. Alternatively, the target time unit includes at least one of a sub-frame, a time slot, or a symbol.

[0088] In other words, according to the indication information, the terminal device can determine in which of the at least one time unit uplink data can be sent at a normal uplink power, and in which of the at least one time unit uplink data can be sent at a limited uplink power.

[0089] For example, the at least one numeric value is a bitmap (bit sequence), and each bit represents a time unit. When a corresponding bit is set to 1, it indicates that uplink data is sent at a limited uplink power within the time unit, otherwise, the uplink data is sent at a normal power. In other words, when a corresponding bit is set to 0, it indicates that uplink data is sent at a normal power, otherwise, the uplink data is sent at the limited uplink power within the time unit.

[0090] It should be understood that the at least one numeric value in the embodiments of the present disclosure can be used for merely indicating one of the at least one time unit, or can be used for indicating multiple of the at least one time unit.

[0091] For example, the at least one time unit can be periodic.

[0092] Further, the indication information further includes timing bias information and period information. The timing bias information and the period information are used for the terminal device to determine at least one of a start position or an end position of the at least one time unit in time domain.

[0093] In another embodiment, the network device can directly notify in which time unit the terminal device needs to send uplink data at the second transmission power, and in which time unit the terminal device needs to send uplink data at the third transmission power.

[0094] In particular, the indication information is used for notifying the terminal device to send uplink data to the first network device at a second transmission power within the target time unit, or the indication information is used for notifying the terminal device to send uplink data to the first network device at a third transmission power within the target time unit. The second transmission power is greater than the third transmission power.

[0095] Further, the second transmission power can be a maximum transmission power supported by the terminal device.

[0096] Alternatively, the terminal device can acquire the indication information by receiving downlink control information (DCI) from the first network device. For example, the DCI includes the indication information.

[0097] It should be understood that the idea of the embodiments of the present disclosure consists in that a network device sends indication information to a terminal device so that the terminal device determines a transmission power for sending uplink data. That is to say, the indication information is merely exemplary illustration of the embodiments of the present disclosure, and the embodiments of the present disclosure are not limited thereto.
