Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION



[0001] This application claims the benefit and priority of Chinese Application No. 201710543348.9, filed on July 5, 2017, the disclosures of which are incorporated in their entirety by reference herein.

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0002] The present disclosure relates to a communication technology field, and more particularly to a blind detection method, a signal transmission method, relevant devices and a system.

BACKGROUND



[0003] With the development of communication technology, the 5G New Radio (NR) communication system is gradually put on the agenda. Compared with the Long Term Evolution (LTE) communication system, the NR communication system has the advantages of high transmission rate, large capacity, high reliability and large coverage, etc. The application of the NR communication system can improve the communication ability to a new level.

[0004] In the communication process of the current NR communication system, the User Equipment (UE) usually needs to periodically conduct blind detection on the Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH) to determine whether there is a PDCCH signal and the transmission of the corresponding Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) signal. For instance, in the idle state of Radio Resource Control (RRC), the PDCCH is detected periodically according to the preconfigured time. If the PDCCH signal is detected, whether a paging signal received by the UE is that of the UE is further determined. Alternatively, in a Discontinuous Reception (DRX) state, the UE discontinuously performs the blind detection on the PDCCH. If detecting the PDCCH signal, the UE conducts subsequent operations according to the type of the PDCCH signal. Due to the high power consumption of each blind detection performed by the UE on the PDCCH, while the UE cannot detect the PDCCH signal in most cases in the blind detection of the PDCCH, which wastes the energy consumption of the UE, resulting in high energy consumption. It can be seen that the current NR communication system has the problem of high UE energy consumption in the communication process.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION



[0015] Technical schemes in embodiments of the present disclosure are clearly and completely described hereinafter with reference to the accompanying drawings. Apparently, the described embodiments are partial of the present disclosure, rather than all embodiments. Based on the embodiments in the present disclosure, all other embodiments obtained by those skilled in the art of the present disclosure without creative works are in the scope of the present disclosure.

[0016] Referring to figure 1, figure 1 is a schematic diagram illustrating structure of a blind detection system in accordance with various embodiments of the present disclosure. As shown in figure 1, the system includes multiple UEs 11 and a network device 12. The UE 11 may be a mobile phone, a tablet personal computer, a laptop computer, a Personal Digital Assistant (called PDA for short), a Mobile Internet Device (MID) or a wearable device, etc. It should be noted that embodiments of the present disclosure do not make limitations on the specific type of the UE 11. In addition, the above multiple UEs 11 can include UEs with different bandwidth capabilities, for example, including the UE that supports the broadband and the UE that supports narrowband. The UE that supports the broadband may be that supports the maximum bandwidth spectrum of the carrier (such as Pcell or Scell). Of course, embodiments of the present disclosure do not make limitations on this. For instance, the UE that supports the bandwidth may also be the UE that supports the preset broadband frequency band (such as, 400 MHZ or 300 MHZ). However, the above-mentioned UE that supports the narrowband can be the UE that only supports partial bandwidth of the maximum bandwidth band of the carrier, for example, the UE that only supports 20MHz or 100MHz.

[0017] The network device 12 may be a Transmission Reception Point (TRP) or a base station. The base station may be a macro station, such as LTE eNB and 5G NR NB, etc. The network device 12 may be an Access Point (AP).

[0018] It should be noted that embodiments of the present disclosure do not make limitation on the specific type of the network device 12. Specific functions of the UE 11 and the network device 12 may be specifically described via following multiple embodiments.

[0019] Referring to figure 2, figure 2 is a flow chart illustrating a blind detection method in accordance with various embodiments of the present disclosure. As shown in figure 2, following blocks are included:
Block 201: receiving a target signal transmitted from the network device.

[0020] In this embodiment of the present disclosure, receiving the target signal transmitted from the network device may include receiving a wake-up signal transmitted from the network device. The wake-up signal is used to wake up the UE to perform blind detection on the PDCCH. Receiving the target signal transmitted from the network device may be receiving a sleep signal transmitted from the network device. The sleep signal is used to enable the UE to maintain a sleep state when the PDCCH is detected.

[0021] It should be noted that before transmitting an indication signal, the network device may group covered UEs and transmit a same indication signal to UEs in a same group. When a UE receives an indication signal transmitted from the network device for the UE group, at which the UE is located, the UE performs the blind detection on the PDCCH or maintains the sleep state when the PDCCH is detected.

[0022] Block 202: performing the blind detection on the PDCCH or maintaining the sleep state based on the target signal when the PDCCH is detected.

[0023] In this embodiment of the present disclosure, the blind detection is performed on the PDCCH based on the target signal. It can be that the UE determines that the received indication signal is the target signal transmitted from the network device for the UE or for the UE group, at which the UE is located, i.e. the UE determines that the target signal is received, the UE performs the blind detection for the PDCCH or maintains the sleep state when the PDCCH is detected.

[0024] This embodiment of the present disclosure includes: receiving the target signal transmitted from the network device, performing the blind detection on the PDCCH or maintaining the sleep state based on the target signal when the PDCCH is detected. Periodic blind detection performed by the UE on the PDCCH may be avoided, so that the energy consumption of the UE may be reduced.

[0025] Referring to figure 3, figure 3 is a flow chart illustrating a blind detection method in accordance with various embodiments of the present disclosure. As shown in figure 3, this embodiment of the present disclosure is described taking the target signal as the wake-up signal and following blocks are included:
Block 301: receiving a wake-up signal transmitted from a network device.

[0026] In this embodiment of the present disclosure, the above receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device may be that the UE receives the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device in a Radio Resource Control (RRC) idle state or in a Discontinuous Reception (DRX) state. The wake-up signal is used to wake up the UE to perform the blind detection on the PDCCH.

[0027] The above receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device may be receiving the wake-up signal, which is transmitted from the network device in a moment except for that corresponding to a Synchronization Signal (SS) block or in a bandwidth except for that corresponding to the SS block using periodic transmission characteristics of the SS block.

[0028] Optionally, the above block 301 may include: receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device at a moment corresponding to a synchronization signal block, or receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device in a bandwidth corresponding to the synchronization signal block or receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device at the moment corresponding to the synchronization signal block and in the bandwidth corresponding to the synchronization signal block. Through receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device at the moment corresponding to the synchronization signal block or in the bandwidth corresponding to the synchronization signal block, resources occupied for transmitting and receiving the wake-up signal may be effectively saved and resource utilization of the synchronization signal block may be improved.

[0029] In this embodiment, the above receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device at the moment corresponding to the synchronization signal block may include: receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on resources of Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) symbols occupied by a Primary Synchronization Signal (PSS) or Secondary Synchronization Signal (SSS) of a transmitted synchronization signal block or receiving the wake-up signal transmitted on OFDM symbols occupied by a DL control channel, UL control channel or guard interval of a slot, at which the synchronization signal block is located.

[0030] Further, optionally, the step of receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device at the moment corresponding to the synchronization signal block includes:

receiving the wake-up signal, which is transmitted from the network device on idle resources of OFDM symbols, at which a primary synchronization signal included in the synchronization signal block is located; or

receiving the wake-up signal, which is transmitted from the network device on idle resources of OFDM symbols, at which a secondary synchronization signal included in the synchronization signal block is located; or

receiving the wake-up signal, which is transmitted from the network device on the idle resources of the OFDM symbols, at which the primary synchronization signal included in the synchronization signal block is located and on the idle resources of the OFDM symbols, at which the secondary synchronization signal included in the synchronization signal block is located; or

receiving the wake-up signal, which is transmitted from the network device on idle OFDM symbols of a slot, at which the synchronization signal block is located; or

receiving the wake-up signal, which is transmitted from the network device on all or partial of idle resources of the synchronization signal block.



[0031] In this embodiment, the idle resources may be resources in 4 OFDM symbols and 288 sub-carrier bandwidths occupied by the synchronization signal block, except for those occupied by the PSS, SSS, physical broadcast channel signal and physical broadcast channel demodulation reference signal. The idle OFDM symbols include OFDM symbols in OFDM symbols of the slot, at which the synchronization signal block is located, except for those occupied by the DL control channel, the UL control channel and the guard interval. Via transmitting the wake-up signal in the idle resources or idle OFDM symbols, the resource utilization of the synchronization signal block may be further improved.

[0032] Further, the above receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device in partial of the idle resources of the synchronization signal block may be that the network device predefines or preconfigures partial of the idle resources of the synchronization signal block for the UE and transmits the wake-up signal on the predefined or preconfigured partial resources. The above predefined partial resources may be those defined following a communication protocol, which is preset between the network device and the UE. The preconfigured partial resources may be those indicated by the configuration information, which is transmitted to the UE by the network device in advance.

[0033] Further, optionally, the step of receiving the wake-up signal from the network device in the bandwidth corresponding to the synchronization signal block includes: receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on partial or all sub-carriers for transmitting the synchronization signal block. Via transmitting the wake-up signal on partial or all sub-carriers for transmitting the synchronization signal block, the resource utilization of the synchronization signal block may be further improved.

[0034] For instance, it may be receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on 288 sub-carriers for transmitting the synchronization signal block, or receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on partial of the 288 sub-carriers for transmitting the synchronization signal block.

[0035] Optionally, the block 301 may include: receiving the target signal transmitted from the network device when the UE performs radio resource management measurement. The UE may receive the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device when the UE performs the radio resource management measurement. At that moment, the UE not only can receive the wake-up signal, but also can conduct radio management measurement, thus the energy consumption of the UE may be reduced.

[0036] The above Radio Resource Management (RRM) measurement may include the Reference Signal Receiving Power (RSRP) measurement, Reference Signal Received Quality (RSRQ) measurement, and Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) measurement, etc. In addition, receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device when the user terminal is carrying out the radio resource management measurement can be receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from network device when the user terminal is carrying out radio resource management measurement and on the idle resources or idle OFDM symbols.

[0037] In this embodiment of the present disclosure, receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device may be receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on beams except for those used for transmitting the synchronization signal block. In an alternative, optionally, the block 301 may include: receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on a target beam. The target beam is a beam used by the network device for transmitting the synchronization signal block. By transmitting wake-up signal on the beam used by the network device for transmitting the synchronization signal block, resources occupied by the network device for transmitting the wake-up signal may be reduced and the resources occupied by the UE for receiving the wake-up signal may be reduced, thus the energy consumption of the network device and the UE may be reduced.

[0038] The above receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on the target beam may be receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on the target beam and when the UE performs the radio resource management measurement.

[0039] Optionally, the above block 401 may include:

when a period of a synchronization signal block set is larger than a discontinuous reception period of the UE, receiving at least one of at least two wake-up signals transmitted from the network device in the period of the synchronization signal block set; or

when the period of the synchronization signal block set is larger than the discontinuous reception period of the UE, receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device in a configured slot; or

when the period of the synchronization signal block set is larger than the discontinuous reception period of the UE, receiving at least one of wake-up signals transmitted from the network device in the period of at least one of two adjacent synchronization signal block sets and in the configured slot;

wherein the configured slot is a slot configured by the network device in an interval of two adjacent synchronization signal block sets.



[0040] In this embodiment, the above receiving at least one of at least two wake-up signals transmitted from the network device in the period of the synchronization signal block set, receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network side in the configured slot, which is a slot configured by the network device in an interval of two adjacent synchronization signal block sets, or receiving at least one of wake-up signals transmitted from the network device in the period of at least one of two adjacent synchronization signal block sets and in the configured slot may include receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on the target beam.

[0041] For example, when the period of synchronous signal block set is 160ms and the discontinuous reception period is 80ms, there is no transmission of synchronous signal block within two discontinuous reception periods. It is possible to simultaneously transmit the wake-up signals of two discontinuous reception in the slot of the transmission of one synchronous signal block set. Alternatively, a new time-frequency resource can be defined in the transmission time interval of two synchronous signal block sets, and a wake-up signal can be transmitted using the newly defined time-frequency resource, and another wake-up signal can be transmitted using a synchronous signal block, so as to improve the transmission efficiency of the wake-up signals and improve the resource utilization. The above at least two wake-up signals can use the same or different signal parameters.

[0042] Block 302: performing blind detection on the PDCCH based on the wake-up signal.

[0043] In this embodiment of the present disclosure, the above performing blind detection on the PDCCH based on the wake-up signal may be that the UE determines whether the received wake-up signal is that belonging to itself or belonging to a UE group, at which the UE is located. When the received wake-up signal is that belonging to itself or belonging to the UE group, at which the UE is located, the UE performs the blind detection on the PDCCH.

[0044] Optionally, the wake-up signal may include a target sequence. So, the wake-up signal can be transmitted in the form of a sequence, thus the UE can accurately distinguish whether the received wake-up signal is that belonging to itself or belonging to the UE group, at which the UE is located via the target sequence, which improves the accuracy of instructing the UE to perform the blind detection on the PDCCH, and reduces the energy consumption of the UE.

[0045] In this embodiment, the target sequence can be a Pseudo-Noise (PN) sequence, including: a maximum linear feedback shift register sequence (M sequence) or a Recombinding Sequence (RS) Sequence, etc. The target sequence can also be a sequence derived from the PN sequence, including the Gold sequence proposed by R. Gold on the basis of the M sequence. The target sequence can also include a Constant Amplitude Zero Auto Correlation (CAZAC) sequence, including a multiphase orthogonal sequence and Zadoff-Chu (ZC) sequence proposed by Zadoff and Chu.

[0046] Further, optionally, the target sequence may include: the maximum linear feedback shift register sequence, a Gold sequence or ZC sequence. Alternatively, the target sequence may include: a sequence, which is generated by modulating at least two of the maximum linear feedback shift register sequence, Gold sequence and ZC sequence. Alternatively, the target sequence may include a sequence associated with a cell Identifier (ID).

[0047] In this embodiment, the wake-up signal is transmitted through the M sequence, Gold sequence, ZC sequence or a sequence, which is generated by modulating at least two of the M sequence, Gold sequence and ZC sequence or via the sequence associated with the cell ID. So, this method may more accurately to make the UE distinguish whether the received wake-up signal is that belonging to itself, further improve the accuracy of instructing the UE to perform the blind detection on the PDCCH and reduce the energy consumption of the UE. The above sequence associated with the cell ID can be a sequence configured with the address of the cell or the address of the virtual cell.

[0048] Further, optionally, before the block 301, the method further includes: receiving configuration information transmitted from the network device. The configuration information includes: at least one of a generator polynomial, initial state, root sequence, cyclic shift and time to receive the wake-up signal.

[0049] The block 302 further includes: performing the blind detection on the PDCCH based on the configuration information and the wake-up signal.

[0050] In this embodiment, the configuration information transmitted from the network device may be received before the network device transmits a paging signal to the UE in a Radio Resource Control (RRC) idle state or before the network device transmits the PDCCH signal to the UE in a Discontinuous Reception (DRX) state. During the UE receives the wake-up signal, the network device transmits the configuration information to the UE and transmits the predefined length of M sequence to the UE according to a predefined mode, i.e. the communication protocol preset for the network device and the UE or a preconfigured mode, to configure the configuration information for the UE. The predefined length may be 31, 63 or 127 sub-carriers. Transmitting the predefined length of M sequence by the network device may include transmitting the predefined length of M sequence on OFDM symbols, at which the SSS of the synchronization signal block is located, or on idle OFDM symbols of the slot, at which the synchronization signal block is located.

[0051] Performing the blind detection on the PDCCH based on the configuration information and the wake-up signal may be that the UE performs matching detection, such as coherent detection or non-coherent detection on the received signal based on the predefined or preconfigured configuration information during the transmission time of the wake-up signal. The configuration information may include a generator polynomial, initial state, root sequence and cyclic shift. When the matching is successfully, it may be determined that the target sequence exists in the wake-up signal and determined that the wake-up signal received by the UE is that belonging to itself or belonging to the UE group, at which the UE is located. Therefore, the blind detection is performed on the PDCCH to improve the efficiency of the blind detection.

[0052] Further, when the network device transmits the target sequence in the sequence mode, the network device may generate the sequence according to the generation mode of each target sequence and transmits the sequence. This embodiment of the present disclosure describes the Gold sequence, M sequence and a generation mode formed by modulating the Gold sequence and M sequence. Since the Gold sequence is generated by performing an XOR operation on two M sequences. The generation mode of the Gold sequence may be as follows:









[0053] M denotes length of Gold sequence c(n), NC=1600;
The initialization mode of x1 is x1(0)=1; x1(n)=0, n=1,2,...,30;
The initialization mode of x2 is

ns denotes number of slots and

denotes an address of a cell or an address of a virtual cell.

[0054] The generation mode of M sequence includes:



[0055] Where, m denotes a cyclic displacement of the M sequence, and the cyclic displacement can be a cyclic displacement configured by the network side equipment for each UE or each group of UEs.

[0056] Therefore, the mode for generating the sequence by modulating the Gold sequence and the M sequence is as follows:



[0057] Further, this embodiment further describes the mode for generating the target sequence by modulating 3 M sequences. The mode for generating the sequence by modulating 3 M sequences is as follows:



[0058] The mode for generating d1(n) is as follows:




and 0≤n<127;




and



[0059] The mode for generating d2(n) is as follows:




and

further,



[0060] The mode for generating d3(n) is as follows:





[0061] Further, c(n) denotes a scrambling sequence, in which the element is ±1. The network device may configure a scrambling sequence for each UE or each group of UEs.

[0062] Optionally, the above block 301 may include: receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on predefined or preconfigured time frequency resources. Therefore, the UE may accurately determine whether the received wake-up signal is that belonging to itself, which may improve the accuracy of the blind detection performed by the UE on the PDCCH and reduce the energy consumption of the UE.

[0063] In this embodiment, receiving the wake-up signal transmitted by the network device on the predefined or preconfigured time-frequency resources may be receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device at a moment corresponding to a synchronization signal block in the predefined or preconfigured time-frequency resources; receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device in a bandwidth corresponding to the synchronization signal block in the predefined or preconfigured time-frequency resources; or receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device at the moment corresponding to the synchronization signal block and in the bandwidth corresponding to the synchronization signal block in the predefined or preconfigured time-frequency resources.

[0064] Further, optionally, the block 302 may further include:

when the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device is correctly decoded, making a determination that the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device is received, performing the blind detection on the PDCCH or maintaining the sleep state when the PDCCH is detected, the wake-up signal is a wake-up signal, which is predefined or preconfigured on the time frequency resources, encoded and scrambled by the network device; or

when detecting that power of the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device is larger than a preset threshold, making a determination that the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device is received, performing the blind detection on the PDCCH or maintaining the sleep state when the PDCCH is detected, wherein the wake-up signal is the wake-up signal, which is predefined or preconfigured on the time frequency resources and is obtained after the network device modulates the amplitude of the wake-up signal, and the power of the wake-up signal is associated with the modulated amplitude.



[0065] Before the network device transmits the paging signal to the UE in the RRC idle state or before the network device transmits the PDCCH signal to the UE in the DRX state, the network device may encode or scramble the wake-up signal on the predefined or preconfigured time-frequency resources. When the UE receives the encoded or scrambled target information, the UE decodes the wake-up signal. When the UE may correctly decodes the wake-up signal, the UE may determine that the wake-up signal belonging to itself is received, that is, the UE receives the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device. When the UE cannot correctly decode the wake-up signal, the UE determines that it does not receive the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device. Therefore, the accuracy of instructing the UE to perform the blind detection on the PDCCH is improved and the energy consumption of the UE is reduced.

[0066] Further, the network device may modulate the amplitude of the wake-up signal on the predefined or preconfigured time-frequency resources. For instance, the amplitude of the wake-up signal may be modulated to a preset amplitude. When the UE receives the target information, the amplitude of which has been modulated, the UE detects whether the power of the received wake-up signal transmitted from the network device is larger than a preset threshold. When detecting that the power of the received wake-up signal transmitted from the network device is larger than the preset threshold, it is determined that the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device is received. Therefore, the energy consumption of the UE may be reduced. The association between the power of the wake-up signal and the amplitude of the wake-up signal may be the corresponding relationship between the preset power and the amplitude. The power of the wake-up signal associated with the amplitude of the wake-up signal may be determined according to the corresponding relationship between the preset power and the amplitude.

[0067] It should be noted that the above-mentioned receiving, by the UE, the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device may include receiving the wake-up signal transmitted from the network device on the idle resources or idle OFDM resources in the mode of the target sequence, or transmitted from the network device in the mode of coding and scrambling or in the mode of amplitude modulation on the predefined or preconfigured time-frequency resources, or receiving the wake-up signal in the mode of the target sequence when the UE performs the radio management measurement, or in the mode of coding and scrambling or in the mode of amplitude modulation on the predefined or preconfigured time-frequency resources, or receiving the wake-up signal in the mode of the target sequence on the target beam, or in the mode of coding and scrambling or in the mode of amplitude modulation on the predefined or preconfigured time-frequency resources, which are not limited here.

As shown in figure 4, the embodiment of the present disclosure is described taking the target signal as the sleep signal and includes following blocks:

The UE may receive the sleep signal transmitted from the network device when the UE performs the radio resource management measurement, which may avoid that the resources are occupied when the UE performs the radio resource management measurement and may reduce the energy consumption of the UE.

In an alternative, optionally, the block 401 may include: receiving the sleep signal transmitted from the network device on a target beam. The target beam is a beam used by the network device for transmitting the synchronization signal block. By transmitting the sleep signal on the target beam, resources occupied for transmitting the sleep signal may be reduced and resource utilization of the network device and the UE may be further improved.

[0083] Optionally, the sleep signal may include a target sequence. So, the sleep signal can be transmitted in the form of sequence, thus the UE can accurately distinguish whether the received sleep signal is that belonging to itself or that belonging to the UE group, at which the UE is located, via the target sequence.

[0086] Optionally, the above block 401 may include: receiving the sleep signal transmitted from the network device on predefined or preconfigured time frequency resources. Therefore, the UE may accurately determine whether the received sleep signal is that belonging to itself, which may avoid the periodic blind detection performed by the UE on the PDCCH, thus reduce the energy consumption of the UE.
