Description

CROSS-REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION



[0001] This application claims a priority to Chinese Patent Application No. 201710642684.9 filed on July 31, 2017, the disclosure of which is incorporated in its entirety by reference herein.

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0002] The present disclosure relates to the technical field of communication applications, and in particular to a terminal state indicating method, a terminal state determining method, a base station and a terminal.

BACKGROUND



[0003] In Long Term Evolution (LTE) or 5th Generation (5G) communication systems, user equipment (UE) in a radio resource control (RRC) idle state needs to detect a paging signal transmitted by a base station at the pre-configured time. The process of detecting the paging signal is as follows: blindly detecting a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) corresponding to a P-RNTI (Paging-RNTI); if the PDCCH is not detected, ending the detection; and if the PDCCH is detected, further detecting a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) indicated by the PDCCH, and ending the detection when the detected PDSCH is not a paging signal of a current UE, otherwise, the detected PDSCH being the paging signal of a current user.

[0004] A UE in an RRC idle state periodically detects a paging signal, and the probability of receiving a paging signal belonging to the UE is relatively low, while the power consumption when each time a terminal detects PDCCH and PDSCH is high, which is not conducive for a terminal to save power.

[0005] In addition, a basic mechanism of Discontinuous Reception (DRX) is to configure a DRX cycle for a UE in an RRC connected state. The DRX cycle includes an active period (On Duration) and a sleep period (Opportunity for DRX), where during the active period, the UE monitors and receives the PDCCH, and during the sleep period, the UE does not receive data from a downlink channel to save power.

[0006] In most cases, when a UE is scheduled in a certain subframe to receive or transmit data, the UE may probably be scheduled persistently in next few subframes, and if it is needed to wait to receive or transmit the data until the next DRX cycle comes, additional delay may be caused. To shorten this type of delay, the UE may be in an active period persistently after being scheduled, that is, the UE may persistently monitor the PDCCH during a configured active period. In fact, a current mechanism is that each time when the UE is scheduled for initial data transmission, a timer drx-InactivityTimer may be started (or restarted), and the UE will stay in an active state until the timer expires. The drx-InactivityTimer specifies the number of consecutive PDCCH subframe(s) in an active state after the UE successfully decodes a PDCCH indicating an initial uplink UL or downlink DL user data transmission. That is, the timer is restarted once each time when the UE is scheduled for initial data transmission.

[0007] In order to further reduce the power consumption of blind detection of a paging signal or a PDCCH, the concepts of wake-up signal (WUS) and go-to-sleep signal are proposed.

[0008] In each DRX cycle of an idle state or an RRC connected state, before a UE blindly detects the Paging signal or the PDCCH, a base station transmits a wake-up signal to the UE, and the UE wakes up at a corresponding time, and detects the wake-up signal. If the UE detects the wake-up signal, the UE blindly detects the Paging signal or the PDCCH; otherwise, the UE does not blindly detect the Paging signal or the PDCCH (i.e., continuing to sleep).

[0009] The detecting the wake-up signal is less complex and more power-saving than blindly detecting the Paging signal or the PDCCH.

[0010] In each DRX cycle of an idle state or an RRC connected state, before a UE blindly detects the Paging signal or the PDCCH, a base station transmits a go-to-sleep signal to the UE, and the UE wakes up at a corresponding time, and detects the go-to-sleep signal. If the UE detects the go-to-sleep signal, the UE does not blindly detect the Paging signal or the PDCCH (i.e., continuing to sleep); otherwise, the UE blindly detects the Paging signal or the PDCCH (i.e., waking up).

[0011] The detecting the go-to-sleep signal is less complex and more power-saving than blindly detecting the Paging signal or the PDCCH.

[0012] However, in a design of a wake-up signal or a go-to-sleep signal through a sequence, generally, one sequence is only used to indicate one UE to enter a wake-up state or a sleep state, thereby resulting in a low resource utilization.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION



[0022] Technical solutions in embodiments of the present disclosure will be clearly and completely described below with reference to the drawings in the embodiments of the present disclosure. Obviously, the described embodiments are only a part of the embodiments of the present disclosure, but not all of the embodiments. All other embodiments obtained by a person of ordinary skill in the art based on the embodiments in the present disclosure and without creative efforts shall fall within the protection scope of the present disclosure.

[0023] FIG. 1 is a flowchart of a terminal state indicating method according to an embodiment of the present disclosure. As shown in FIG. 1, the method includes step 101: transmitting a subsequence in a predetermined subsequence set, where the predetermined subsequence set includes at least one subsequence, each of the at least one subsequence is configured to indicate that at least two terminals are in a target state, and the target state includes a wake-up state or a sleep state.

[0024] The predetermined subsequence set herein is a collection of subsequences pre-stored in the terminal and the base station, and indexes of every subsequences in the subsequence set are stored in both the terminal and the base station, thus the terminal can know a corresponding subsequence according to an index of the subsequence indicated by the base station.

[0025] At least one subsequence in the predetermined subsequence set is a root sequence of a predetermined sequence, or is obtained by a predetermined sequence subjected to different cyclic shifts. Specifically, the predetermined sequence may be at least one of a ZC sequence or an M sequence. Of course, the predetermined sequence may also be other sequences, such as a gold sequence. The ZC sequence is an abbreviation of ZadeOff-chu sequence.

[0026] In a case that the above predetermined sequence is a ZC sequence, specifically, whether each of at least two terminals is in a wake-up state or a sleep state is indicated through different root sequences.

[0027] In a case that the above predetermined sequence is an M sequence, specifically, whether each of at least two terminals is in a wake-up state or a sleep state is indicated through different cyclic shifts.

[0028] In the terminal state determining method according to the embodiment of the present disclosure, a subsequence in a predetermined subsequence set is transmitted, the predetermined subsequence set includes at least one subsequence, each subsequence is configured to indicate that at least two terminals are in a target state, and the target state includes a wake-up state or a sleep state. The embodiment of the present disclosure can indicate that at least two terminals are respectively in a wake-up state or a sleep state simultaneously through one subsequence, thereby improving resource utilization.

[0029] Further, prior to step 101, the method further includes indicating, to each terminal of the at least two terminals, configuration information corresponding to a target subsequence set in an implicit manner or in an explicit manner. The target subsequence set is a subset or a full set of the predetermined subsequence set, the target subsequence set includes at least one subsequence, and target subsequence sets indicated to the at least two terminals are different sequence sets or a same sequence set. The configuration information includes an index of each subsequence in the target subsequence set, a relationship between each subsequence and the target state, time-domain resource information of each subsequence and frequency-domain resource information of each subsequence.

[0030] Specifically, the time-domain resource information may be an orthogonal frequency division multiplexed OFDM symbol, a slot or a mini-slot.

[0031] The base station indicates configuration information corresponding to a target subsequence set to each terminal. When receiving a subsequence transmitted by the base station, the terminal detects whether a target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence exists in the target subsequence set corresponding to the configuration information indicated by the base station, and in a case that the target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence exists in the target subsequence set, the terminal determines a current state of the terminal according to the target state indicated by the target subsequence.

[0032] Optionally, at least two subsequences in the predetermined subsequence set are obtained from a same subsequence subjected to different phase offsets.

[0033] It is assumed that there are two subsequences having opposite phases in the predetermined subsequence set. In detecting whether the target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence exists in the target subsequence set corresponding to the configuration information indicated by the base station, the terminal may perform a predetermined matching operation between only one subsequence of the two subsequences and the currently received subsequence, such as an exclusive OR operation, to obtain a processing result, and obtains, according to the processing result, a result of the other subsequence about whether the other subsequence matches the currently received subsequence. Therefore, the number of times of performing the predetermined matching operation is reduced.

[0034] In a specific embodiment of the present disclosure, the base station may configure a subsequence only indicating that a terminal is in a wake-up state, or a subsequence only indicating that a terminal is in a sleep state, or may configure a subsequence separately indicating that a terminal is in a wake-up state and a terminal is in a sleep state. In this case, the relationship between the subsequence and the target state includes at least one of the following: a first relationship between the subsequence and a wake-up state, or a second relationship between the subsequence and a sleep state. In addition, subsequences configured by the base station for every terminals may be different, or subsequences configured by the base station for some terminals may be the same.

[0035] Further, the indicating, to each terminal of the at least two terminals, the configuration information corresponding to the target subsequence set in the explicit manner includes:

indicating, to each terminal of the at least two terminals, the configuration information corresponding to the target subsequence set through a predetermined message,

where the predetermined message includes at least one of: system information, a radio resource control RRC signaling, a media access control layer control signaling, an L1 (Layer 1) control signal, or an L2 (Layer 2) control signal, and

the predetermined message is transmitted to each of the at least two terminals in a broadcast, multicast, or unicast manner.



[0036] Further, the indicating, to each terminal of the at least two terminals, the configuration information corresponding to the target subsequence set in the implicit manner includes: indicating a relationship between the configuration information and a terminal identifier to each terminal of the at least two terminals based on an agreement of a technical specification.

[0037] The relationship between the configuration information and the terminal identifier is indicated to a terminal, so that the terminal obtains corresponding configuration information according to its own terminal identifier and the relationship.

[0038] Optionally, the configuration information is indicated to each terminal of the at least two terminals based on an agreement of a technical specification.

[0039] For example, subsequences in the predetermined subsequence set are transmitted on fixed resources based on an agreement of a technical specification. Specifically, the fixed resources include several sub-carriers in the center of the system bandwidth.

[0040] Optionally, a time-domain resource and/or a frequency-domain resource of a first subsequence in the predetermined subsequence set is different from a time-domain resource and/or a frequency-domain resource of a second subsequence in the predetermined subsequence set, the first subsequence is configured to indicate that at least two terminals within a coverage of a first cell are in the target state, the second subsequence is configured to indicate that at least two terminals within a coverage of a second cell are in the target state, and the first cell and the second cell are different cells.

[0041] Resources occupied by subsequences for different cells (inter-cells) are staggered, so as to avoid mutual interference and improve reliability of a sequence for waking a terminal up. In addition, when a sequence is detected, the sequence may be used for cell measurement at the same time, such as reference signal reception quality RSRQ and the received signal strength indication RSSI measurements, thereby making the RSRQ and RSSI measurements more accurate.

[0042] Optionally, a time-frequency resource of a third subsequence in the predetermined subsequence set is reserved as empty in a fourth cell, and a time-frequency resource of a fourth subsequence in the predetermined subsequence set is reserved as empty in a third cell, the third subsequence is configured to indicate that at least two terminals within a coverage of the third cell are in the target state, the fourth subsequence is configured to indicate that at least two terminals within a coverage of the fourth cell are in the target state, and the third cell and the fourth cell are neighboring cells.

[0043] Resources occupied by sequences corresponding to adjacent cells may be orthogonal (taking three adjacent cells as an example, each cell does not transmit any signal on time-frequency resources where the other two cell sequences are located, that is, it is blank). The resources occupied by subsequences for inter-cells are staggered to avoid mutual interference and improve reliability of the subsequence for waking up the terminal.

[0044] Optionally, a downlink transmission power corresponding to a time-frequency resource of the subsequence is higher than a downlink transmission power corresponding to a predetermined resource, and the predetermined resource and the subsequence occupy a same time-domain resource and different frequency-domain resources.

[0045] The downlink transmission power of the predetermined resource is lower than the transmission power of the time-frequency resource of the subsequence, and may even be 0, which increases the transmission power of the subsequence, thereby improving reliability of the subsequence for waking the terminal up.

[0046] Optionally, M subsequences in the predetermined subsequence set are configured to indicate that N terminals are respectively in a wake-up state or in a sleep state, M is less than or equal to 2N, and M and N are positive integers.

[0047] Optionally, one subsequence of the predetermined subsequence set is a discontinuous transmission DTX message.

[0048] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, a combination of states of a plurality of different terminals may be indicated through a sequence, or a state combination of the terminals may be indicated through a DTX message, thereby achieving the objective of saving resources.

[0049] Implementations of the embodiments of the present disclosure are described below with reference to specific application scenarios.

First application scenario



[0050] One subsequence is used to indicate states of two UEs. In the first application scenario, there are four states of UE A and UE B, corresponding to four subsequences, which may be specifically represented by four root sequences of a 31-bit ZC sequence. It is assumed that indexes of the four root sequences are 0, 1, 2, and 3, respectively, where:

root sequence 0 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state and UE B is in a sleep state;

root sequence 1 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state and UE B is in a wake-up state;

root sequence 2 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state and UE B is in a sleep state; and

root sequence 3 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state and UE B is in a wake-up state.



[0051] The base station may configure subsequences respectively indicating that UE A and UE B are in a wake-up state according to the above relationship between the root sequences and the UE states, for example, configuring subsequences 2 and 3 for UE A, and configuring subsequences 1 and 3 for UE B.

[0052] In a case that UE A detects any of root sequence 2 or root sequence 3, UE A enters into a wake-up state; otherwise, UE A remains in a sleep state. In a case that UE B detects any of root sequence 1 or root sequence 3, UE B enters into a wake-up state; otherwise, UE B remains in a sleep state.

[0053] Optionally, two subsequences of the four subsequences in the first application scenario have opposite phases. It is assumed that a phase of root sequence 2 is opposite to a phase of root sequence 3, a predetermined matching operation may be performed between any one subsequence of root sequence 2 and root sequence 3 and the currently received subsequence, and an index of the subsequence is determined based on positive or negative of the obtained correlation value. In such a manner, the number of correlated operations can be reduced.

Second application scenario



[0054] One subsequence is used to indicate states of two UEs. In the second application scenario, there are four states of UE A and UE B, which are represented by three root sequences of a 31-bit ZC sequence and DTX (transmitting nothing). It is assumed that indexes of the three root sequences are 0, 1, and 2, respectively, where:

DTX is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state and UE B is in a sleep state;

root sequence 0 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state and UE B is in a wake-up state;

root sequence 1 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state and UE B is in a sleep state; and

root sequence 2 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state and UE B is in a wake-up state.



[0055] The base station may configure subsequences respectively indicating that UE A and UE B are in a wake-up state according to the above relationship between the root sequences and the UE states or the above relationship between the DTX and the UE state, for example, configuring subsequences 1 and 2 for UE A, and configuring subsequences 0 and 2 for UE B.

[0056] In a case that UE A detects any of root sequence 1 and root sequence 2, UE A enters a wake-up state; otherwise, UE A remains in a sleep state. In a case that UE B detects any of root sequence 0 and root sequence 2, UE B enters a wake-up state; otherwise, UE B remains in a sleep state.

Third application scenario



[0057] One subsequence is used to indicate states of three UEs. In the third application scenario, there are eight states of UE A, UE B, and UE C, corresponding to eight subsequences. Specifically, the eight states may be represented by eight root sequences of a 62-bit ZC sequence. It is assumed that indexes of the eight root sequences are 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7, respectively, where:

root sequence 0 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a sleep state;

root sequence 1 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a wake-up state;

root sequence 2 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a sleep state;

root sequence 3 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a wake-up state.

root sequence 4 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a sleep state;

root sequence 5 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a wake-up state;

root sequence 6 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a sleep state; and

root sequence 7 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a wake-up state.



[0058] The base station may configure subsequences used to indicate that UE A and UE B are respectively in a wake-up state according to the above relationship between the root sequences and the UE states, for example, configuring subsequences 4, 5, 6, and 7 for UE A, configuring subsequences 2, 3, 6, and 7 for UE B, and configuring subsequences 1, 3, 5, and 7 for UE C.

[0059] In a case that UE A detects any of root sequences 4, 5, 6, and 7, UE A enters a wake-up state; otherwise, UE A continues to be in a sleep state. In a case that UE B detects any of root sequences 2, 3, 6, and 7, UE B is in a wake-up state; otherwise, UE B remains in a sleep state. In a case that UE C detects any of root sequences 1, 3, 5, and 7, UE C enters a wake-up state; otherwise, UE C remains in a wake-up state.

Fourth application scenario



[0060] In the fourth application scenario, eight states of UE A, UE B, and UE C are indicated by five root sequences of one sequence. Specifically, the eight states are represented by five root sequences of a 31-bit ZC sequence. It is assumed that indexes of the five root sequences are 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4, respectively, where:

root sequence 0 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a sleep state;

root sequence 1 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a wake-up state;

root sequence 2 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a sleep state;

root sequence 3 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a wake-up state; or root sequence 3 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a wake-up state; or root sequence 3 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a sleep state; or root sequence 3 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a wake-up state; and

root sequence 4 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a sleep state.



[0061] The base station may configure subsequences respectively indicating that UE A, UE B and UE C are in a wake-up state according to the above relationship between the root sequences and the UE states, for example, configuring subsequences 3 and 4 for UE A, configuring subsequences 2 and 3 for UE B, and configuring subsequences 1 and 3 for UE C.

[0062] In a case that UE A detects root sequence 3 or 4, UE A enters a wake-up state; otherwise, UE A continues to be in a sleep state. In a case that UE B detects root sequence 2 or 3, UE B is in a wake-up state; otherwise, UE B remains in a sleep state. In a case that UE C detects root sequence 1 or 3, UE C enters a wake-up state; otherwise, UE C continues to be in a sleep state.

[0063] It should be noted that root sequence 3 indicates four UE state combinations (where at least two UEs of the three UEs are in a wake-up state), and any one of the three UEs enters a wake-up state upon receipt of root sequence 3.

Fifth application scenario



[0064] One subsequence is used to indicate states of three UEs. In the fifth application scenario, there are eight states of UE A, UE B, and UE C, which are specifically represented by three root sequences of a 31-bit ZC sequence and DTX. It is assumed that indexes of the three root sequences are 0, 1, and 2, respectively, where:

DTX is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a sleep state, or used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a sleep state;

root sequence 0 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a wake-up state;

root sequence 1 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a sleep state; and

root sequence 2 is used to indicate that UE A is in a sleep state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a wake-up state; or root sequence 2 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a sleep state, and UE C is in a wake-up state; or root sequence 2 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a sleep state; or root sequence 2 is used to indicate that UE A is in a wake-up state, UE B is in a wake-up state, and UE C is in a wake-up state.



[0065] The base station may configure subsequences indicating that UE A and UE B are respectively in a wake-up state according to the above relationship between the root sequences and the UE states, for example, configuring subsequence 2 and DTX for UE A, configuring subsequences 1 and 2 for UE B, and configuring subsequences 0 and 2 for UE C.

[0066] In a case that UE A detects root sequence 2 or DTX, UE A enters a wake-up state; otherwise, UE A remains in a sleep state. In a case that UE B detects root sequence 1 or 2, UE B is enters a wake-up state; otherwise, UE B remains in a sleep state. In a case that UE C detects root sequence 0 or 2, UE C enters a wake-up state; otherwise, UE C remains in a sleep state.

[0067] It should be noted that root sequence 2 indicates four UE state combinations (where at least two UEs among the three UEs are in a wake-up state), and any one of the three UEs enters a wake-up state when receiving root sequence 2.

[0068] In addition, in an embodiment of the present disclosure, a subsequence may also be used to indicate that one UE is in a wake-up state or a sleep state. There are two states (sleep state and wake-up state) for a UE, corresponding to two subsequences. Phases of the two subsequences are exactly opposite, for example, subsequence 0: 11011011011011, and subsequence 1: 00100100100100, where subsequence 0 is used to indicate that the UE is in a sleep state, and subsequence 1 is used to indicate that the UE is in a wake-up state.

[0069] The UE performs a correlated operation on a received sequence through any one of the foregoing sequences, determines an index of the sequence based on positive or negative of the obtained correlation value, and then determines whether the UE is in a wake-up state or in a sleep state. As an example, the UE performs a correlated operation between the received sequence transmitted by a base station and sequence 0: 11011011011011; the UE enters a sleep state in a case that the obtained correlation value is greater than a certain positive threshold; or the UE enters a wake-up state in a case that the obtained correlation value is less than a certain negative threshold.

[0070] In the embodiments of the present disclosure, a plurality of UEs shares one sequence and resources of the sequence, which increases capacity of a wake-up WUS signal, and the number of multiplexed UEs in each sequence can be flexibly adjusted, thereby achieving a flexible compromise between capacity and robustness. Moreover, a plurality of UEs shares one sequence, and the sequence can monopolize a transmission power of a base station.

[0071] As shown in FIG. 2, an embodiment of the present disclosure further provides a terminal state determining method, which is applied to a terminal and includes steps 201 to 203.

[0072] Step 201: receiving a subsequence transmitted by a base station.

[0073] Step 202: detecting whether a target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence exists in a target subsequence set corresponding to configuration information indicated by the base station, where the target subsequence set is a subset of a predetermined subsequence set, the predetermined subsequence set includes at least one subsequence, each of the at least one subsequence is configured to indicate that at least two terminals are in a target state, and the target state includes a wake-up state or a sleep state.

[0074] Specifically, a predetermined matching operation is performed between subsequences in the target subsequence set and the currently received subsequence; and whether the target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence exists in the target subsequence set is detected according to a relationship between a processing result of the predetermined matching operation and a predetermined threshold.

[0075] The above predetermined matching operation may specifically include correlating two sequences.

[0076] As an optional implementation manner, the predetermined matching operation is performed sequentially on subsequences in the target subsequence set, with the currently received subsequence, until it is detected that a target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence exists in the target subsequence set.

[0077] For example, the terminal sequentially matches subsequences in the target subsequence set that are used to indicate the terminal being in a sleep state, with the currently received sequence (for example, performing a correlated operation on two sequences), to determine whether a subsequence configured to the terminal by the base station has been received. In a case that a detection result shows that the terminal has received a subsequence in the target subsequence set, the terminal stops a detection operation on the next sequence, and the UE enters into a sleep state; otherwise, the UE enters into a wake-up state.

[0078] As another optional implementation manner, the predetermined matching operation is performed respectively on each subsequence in the target subsequence set, with the currently received subsequence.

[0079] For example, the terminal matches the currently received sequence with all the subsequences indicating the terminal being in a sleep state that are in the target subsequence set, and there are two detection results:

in a case that a detection result shows that the UE has received a subsequence in the target subsequence set, the UE enters into a sleep state; and

in a case that a detection result shows that the UE has not received any subsequence in the target subsequence set, the UE enters into a wake-up state.



[0080] For another example, a UE determines whether a subsequence in the target subsequence set configured by a base station for the UE has been received, by performing a correlated operation between all the subsequences in the target subsequence set and the currently received sequence. The UE determines whether to enter a sleep state or a wake-up state according to the received subsequence as determined by the UE. In a case that the received subsequence as determined by the UE is a subsequence indicating a sleep state, the UE enters a sleep state; in a case that the received subsequence as determined by the UE is a subsequence indicating a wake-up state, the UE enters a wake-up state; and in a case that the received subsequence as determined by the UE includes a subsequence indicating a wake-up state and a subsequence indicating a sleep state, the UE enters a wake-up state.

[0081] In the embodiments, the UE performs a correlated operation between one or more subsequences configured by the base station for the UE and the currently received sequence, to determine whether an index of a subsequence configured by the base station for the UE has been received, and then determines the target state (wake-up state or sleep state) of the UE.

[0082] Optionally, in a case that there are a first subsequence and a second subsequence with opposite phases in a subsequence group in the target subsequence set, the predetermined matching operation is performed between the first subsequence and the currently received subsequence to obtain a first processing result; and a second processing result of the second subsequence is obtained according to the first processing result, where the second processing result is a result whether the second subsequence matches the currently received subsequence.

[0083] In this embodiment, in a case that two subsequences with opposite phases exist in the target subsequence set, a predetermined matching operation only needs to be performed between one subsequence and the currently received subsequence, thereby reducing the number of times of performing the predetermined matching operation.

[0084] Step 203: determining a current state of the terminal according to the target state indicated by the target subsequence, in a case that the target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence exists in the target subsequence set.

[0085] In a case that there is a target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence in the target subsequence set, the target state corresponding to the target subsequence is obtained according to a relationship between the target subsequence and the target state in the above configuration information, and the current state of the terminal is determined as the target state.

[0086] The terminal state determining method according to the embodiments of the present disclosure includes: receiving a subsequence transmitted by a base station; detecting whether a target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence exists in a target subsequence set corresponding to configuration information indicated by the base station; and determining a current state of the terminal according to the target state indicated by the target subsequence, in a case that the target subsequence matching the currently received subsequence exists in the target subsequence set. In the embodiments of the present disclosure, the subsequence transmitted by the base station is configured to indicate that at least two terminals are in a target state, thereby improving utilization of resources.

[0087] Further, prior to the above step 202, the method further includes:

obtaining, in an implicit manner or in an explicit manner, the configuration information corresponding to the target subsequence set of the terminal indicated by the base station,

where the configuration information includes an index of each subsequence in the target subsequence set, a relationship between the subsequence and the target state, time-domain resource information of the subsequence and frequency-domain resource information of the subsequence.



[0088] The terminal can receive a target subsequence set configured by a base station for the terminal, by obtaining configuration information, and determine a current state of the terminal according to a state indicated by the subsequence in the target subsequence set.

[0089] Further, the obtaining, in the explicit manner, the configuration information corresponding to the target subsequence set of the terminal indicated by the base station includes: obtaining, through a predetermined message transmitted by the base station, the configuration information corresponding to the target subsequence set of the terminal indicated by the base station. The predetermined message includes at least one of the following: system information, a radio resource control RRC signaling, a media access control layer (MAC) control signaling, an L1 control signal, or an L2 control signal, and the predetermined message is transmitted by the base station in a broadcast, multicast, or unicast manner.

[0091] The relationship between configuration information and a terminal identifiers is indicated to the terminal through the agreement of a technical specification, so that the terminal obtains corresponding configuration information according to its own terminal identifier and the relationship.

[0092] Optionally, a relationship between the configuration information indicated by the base station and terminal identifiers is obtained based on an agreement of a technical specification, and the configuration information indicated by the base station is obtained based on the relationship.

[0093] For example, a subsequence in the predetermined subsequence set is transmitted on a fixed resource based on an agreement of a technical specification. Specifically, the fixed resource includes several sub-carriers in the center of the system bandwidth.
