Description

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0001] The present disclosure relates to the field of wireless communication technology, and more particularly to a method and device for information indication, and a computer storage medium.

BACKGROUND



[0002] The unlicensed spectrum, which is allocated by countries and regions, can be used for radio equipment communication. The unlicensed spectrum is generally considered to be a shared spectrum, that is, communication devices in different communication systems can use the spectrum without applying for a proprietary spectrum authorization from the government if the communication devices meet the regulatory requirements of the spectrum made by the countries or the regions. New radio (NR) unlicensed technology is introduced in the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) plans, for communication on the unlicensed spectrum using the NR technology.

[0003] There are some overlaps between unlicensed bands and licensed bands. In view of different considerations, spectrum supervision and allocation agencies in different countries have different plans and allocations for the spectrums. For example, 3.5GHz is a licensed NR band in China, but is an unlicensed band in the United States. Similarly, 37GHz may be grouped into a licensed NR band in China, but may be grouped into an unlicensed band in the United States. Due to the above differences in spectrum allocation, when a terminal roams in different countries or regions, some countries or regions deploy a NR unlicensed system and some countries or regions deploy a NR licensed system, for the same band (such as the 3.5GH band). Especially for terminal equipment that supports Standalone NR unlicensed, it may be impossible to distinguish whether the access system is a licensed carrier system or an unlicensed carrier system based on the received Synchronization Signal Block (SSB). The terminal device cannot confirm the way to send and receive signals in the future.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION



[0081] In order to better understand the technical solutions of the embodiments of the present disclosure, the technologies related to the embodiments of the present disclosure will be described below.

1) Beam transmission in the Fifth Generation Communication System (5G, 5th Generation)



[0082] Since a frequency band used in the 5G system is higher than that of Long Term Evolution (LTE), a path loss of transmission of a wireless signal becomes large and coverage of the wireless signal becomes small in the 5G system. In this case, a feasible method is to form a beam by using the beamforming technology through a multi-antenna system of a base station, to improve a gain of the wireless signal and remedy the path loss. The beam is directional, and a narrow beam can only cover a part area of the cell, and cannot cover all users in the cell. As shown in FIG. 1, the base station can transmit signals through four beams in different directions. Beam B2 can only cover User Equipment (UE) 1, and cannot cover UE2.

[0083] Common channels and signals in the 5G NR system, such as synchronization signals and broadcast channels, need multi-beam scanning to cover the entire cell, for facilitating reception by UEs in the cell. Multi-beam transmission of Synchronization Signal (SS) is implemented by defining an SS burst set. The SS burst set contains one or more SS bursts, and an SS burst contains one or more SS Blocks (also referred to as SSB). The SS block is used to carry a synchronization signal and a broadcast channel of a beam. Therefore, the SS burst set can contain the synchronization signals of the beams, the number of beams is equal to the number of SS blocks in the cell. The SS block contains a Primary Synchronization Signal (PSS) of one symbol, a Secondary Synchronization Signal (SSS) of one symbol, and New Radio access Technology-Physical Broadcast Channel (NR-PBCH) of two symbols, as shown in FIG. 2.

[0084] A period of the SS burst set is configurable, and the SS burst set transmitted within one period is transmitted within a time window of 5ms. Taking a sub-carrier interval of 15kHz as an example, a slot contains 14 symbols and can carry two SS blocks.

[0085] In addition to that the synchronization signal and the PBCH require the multi-beam scanning, other common information, such as the Remaining Minimum System Information (RMSI) and paging messages, also need to be transmitted by multi-beam scanning.

2) Control Resource Set (CORESET)



[0086] In the 5G NR system, a common search space is required to be defined for an initially-accessed UE for receiving common control information, such as RMSI. Therefore, the concept of CORESET is introduced to define a resource set carrying control information. The UE detects a New Radio access Technology-Physical Downlink Control Channel (NR-PDCCH) in the resource set to obtain scheduling information of the New Radio access Technology-Physical Downlink Shared Channel (NR-PDSCH) for carrying the RMSI. The indication information of CORESET corresponding to the RMSI is carried in an information field RMSI-PDCCH-Config in the NR-PBCH, used by the UE to receive the RMSI. Configuration information of CORESET mainly contains the following information: frequency domain resources, an orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) symbol and length of time.

3) CORESET information related to RMSI in the NR-PBCH



[0087] When the UE needs to access the network, the UE obtains system messages from the network, a part of which is carried by the NR-PBCH and a part of which is carried by the NR-PDSCH. The system message carried by the NR-PDSCH includes RMSI. Downlink Control Information (DCI) corresponding to the NR-PDSCH is carried by the NR-PDCCH, and a location of a time-frequency resource where the NR-PDCCH is arranged is indicated by CORESET information carried by the NR-PBCH, that is, TypeO-PDCCH common search space information. Also, the NR-PBCH also carries information, that is, RMSI presence flag information, for indicating whether the SS block is associated with the RMSI or the TypeO-PDCCH common search space. The RMSI presence flag information indicates that the current SS block is not associated with RMSI or TypeO-PDCCH common search space through a reserved value in the PRB grid offset information field. The PRB grid offset information field includes 4 or 5 bits, which is used to indicate an offset between physical resource block (PRB) grids between channels or signals of the synchronous signal block and the non-synchronous signal block. The offset includes 0-11 or 0-23 subcarriers. Therefore, the PRB grid offset information field further includes 4 or 8 reserved values for indicating that the current SS block is not associated with the RMSI or the TypeO-PDCCH common search space.

[0088] RMSI-PDCCH-Config information is indicated by 8 bits. When the PRB grid offset information field indicates that the current SS block is not associated with the RMSI or the TypeO-PDCCH common search space, the RMSI-PDCCH-Config information field is used to indicate frequency domain position information of the synchronization signal block, for reducing blind detection performed by the UE. The PBCH in the synchronization signal block is detected according to the frequency domain position information of the synchronization signal block, to acquire the RMSI-PDCCH-Config information, and further receive the RMSI.

4) Synchronization Raster



[0089] For the wireless frequency spectrum in NR, the frequency domain position of the synchronization signal block is defined by the synchronization raster, as shown in Table 1 below. In different frequency ranges, possible frequency domain positions of the synchronization signal block are determined by the formula in Table 1 and are numbered by SSREF.
Table 1
Frequency rangeFrequency domain position of SSBRange of SSREF
0-2650MHz N × 900kHz+M × 5kHz, N=1:[2944], M=-1:1 1-[8832]
2400-24250MHz 2400MHz+N × 1.44MHz,N= 0:[15173] [8833-24006]
24250-100000MHz [24250.08]MHz+N × [17.28]MHz, N= 0:[4383] [24007-28390]


[0090] After the synchronization raster is determined, resource mapping of the synchronization signal block is determined according to Table 2 below. That is, the synchronization raster is located in a RE numbered 0 of a PRB numbered 10 of 20 PRBs of the synchronization signal block.
Table 2
RE Index k0
PRB number nPRB corresponding to SSB nPRB = 10


[0091] For a synchronization raster, a distribution of the synchronization rasters in different frequency bands is determined by Table 3 below. For example, for a band n77, the number of the synchronization raster ranges from 9460 to 10079, there is a total of 620 synchronization rasters.

5) Indication method of SSB



[0092] When the reserved value in the PRB grid offset information field (kSSB) indicates that the current SSB is not associated with the RMSI or the TypeO-PDCCH common search space, frequency domain location information of the second SSB (the current SSB is the first SSB) is indicated by the bit in the RMSI-PDCCH-Config information field. Since the RMSI-PDCCH-Config information field contains 8 bits, positions of 256 synchronization rasters can be indicated by indicating an offset of a target synchronization raster relative to a synchronization raster corresponding to the current synchronization signal block. The positions of N×265 synchronization rasters can be indicated based on different reserved values in the PRB grid offset information field. For the frequency range (FR) 1 and FR2, an offset of a GSCN of the synchronization raster corresponding to the target SSB relative to the GSCN of the synchronized raster corresponding to the current SSB is indicated by kSSB and RMSI-PDCCH-Config, respectively according to Table 4 and Table 5. An indication range in Table 4 includes -768 ...-1, 1 ... 768, and an indication range in Table 5 includes -256 ...-1, 1 ... 256. kSSB = 30 is a reserved value in Table 4, and kSSB = 14 is a reserved value in Table 5.

[0097] FIG. 3 is a first schematic flowchart of a method for information indication in an embodiment of the present disclosure. As shown in FIG. 3, the method for information indication includes operations 301 and 302.

[0098] At 301, a terminal device receives an SSB transmitted by a network device.

[0099] At 302, the terminal device acquires indication information according to frequency domain position information of the SSB. The indication information is used to indicate an attribute of a carrier associated with the SSB, and the attribute of the carrier includes whether the carrier is used by a licensed carrier system or an unlicensed carrier system.

[0100] In an embodiment of the present disclosure, considering that there are some overlapping portions between the unlicensed band and the licensed band, a different method for calculating a position of a synchronization raster (sync raster) in the unlicensed band from that in the licensed band is set, to meet a condition that a position of a synchronization raster on the unlicensed band does not overlap with a position of a synchronization raster on the licensed band. When the terminal device detects the SSB, the terminal device can determine that whether a carrier associated with SSB is used by a licensed carrier system or an unlicensed carrier system according to a position of a synchronization raster where the SSB is located.

[0101] In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the attribute of the carrier associated with the SSB includes whether the carrier is used by a licensed carrier system or an unlicensed carrier system. In other words, the attribute of the carrier associated with the SSB includes whether the SSB on the carrier is transmitted by a licensed carrier system or an unlicensed carrier system.

[0102] In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the terminal device acquires the indication information according to a position of a synchronization raster where the detected SSR is located.

[0103] Further, in response to detecting that the SSB is located at a position of a first synchronization raster, the terminal determines that the carrier associated with the SSB is used by a licensed carrier system. In response to detecting the SSB is located at a position of a second synchronization raster, the terminal device determines that the carrier associated with the SSB is used by an unlicensed carrier system.

[0104] The carrier associated with the SSB refers to a carrier which uses the SSB for transmission and reception of a subsequent signal.

[0105] Here, how the terminal device determines whether a synchronization raster where the detected SSB is located belongs to the first synchronization raster or the second synchronization raster can be implemented in the following manner.

[0106] The terminal device determines the position of the first synchronization raster based on a first set of formulas.

[0107] The terminal device determines the position of the second synchronization raster based on a second set of formulas.

[0108] The position of the first synchronization raster determined by the first set of formulas and the position of the second synchronization raster determined by the second set of formulas meet the following relationship: the first synchronization raster and the second synchronization raster have synchronization rasters at different positions within an overlapping bandwidth between a first frequency band and a second frequency band. The first frequency band is a licensed spectrum and the second frequency band is an unlicensed spectrum.

[0109] As shown in FIG. 4, the first frequency band is a licensed spectrum and the second frequency band is an unlicensed spectrum. The first frequency band and the second frequency band have an overlapping portion.

[0110] In an embodiment, the position of the first synchronization raster corresponding to the first frequency band may be calculated using the formula shown in Table 1.

[0111] If the first frequency band is between 0 and 2650MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on the formula N × 900kHz+M × 5kHz, N=1:[2944], M=-1:1.

[0112] If the first frequency band is between 2400 and 24250MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on the formula 2400MHz+N× 1.44MHz, N= 0:[15173].

[0113] If the first frequency band is between 24250 and 100000MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on the formula [24250.08]MHz+N × [17.28]MHz, N= 0:[4383].

[0114] In an embodiment, a new method of calculating a position of the synchronization raster is defined for the position of the second synchronization raster corresponding to the second frequency band.

[0115] If the first frequency band is between 0 and 2650MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on a formula N × 900kHz+M × 5kHz+O1, N=1:[2944], M=-1:1.

[0116] If the first frequency band is between 2400 and 24250MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on a formula 2400MHz+N × 1.44MHz+ O2, N= 0:[15173].

[0117] If the first frequency band is between 24250 and 100000MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on a formula [24250.08]MHz+N× [17.28]MHz+ O3, N= 0:[4383].

[0118] O1, O2, and O3 denote synchronization raster offsets.

[0119] The position of the above first synchronization raster is obtained by adding an offset to the position of the second synchronization raster, so that the first synchronization raster and the second synchronization raster do not overlap with each other. As shown in Table 6 below, in an example, O1=450kHz, O2=0.72MHz, and O3=8.64MHz. It should be understood that the values of O1, O2, and O3 are not unique.

[0120] A new synchronization raster calculation formula can also be defined separately for the unlicensed band, which is different from the existing synchronization raster calculation formula. As shown in FIG. 5, the position of the first synchronization raster corresponding to the first frequency band is shown by a solid line; and the position of the second synchronization raster corresponding to the second frequency band is shown by a dotted line. Since the first synchronization raster and the second synchronization raster are determined by different formulas, it can be ensured the positions of the synchronization rasters corresponding to the licensed band and the unlicensed band do not overlap in the overlapping portion of the first bandwidth and the second bandwidth.

[0123] In an embodiment of the present disclosure, the attribute of the carrier associated with the SSB include whether the carrier is used by a licensed carrier system or an unlicensed carrier system.

[0126] Alternatively, the network device transmits an SSB to the terminal device in a position of a second synchronization raster, and the terminal device detects that the SSB is located at a position of a second synchronization raster to determine that the carrier associated with the SSB is used by the unlicensed carrier system.

[0127] In an embodiment, the network device determines the position of the first synchronization raster based on a first set of formulas.

[0128] The network device determines the position of the second synchronization raster based on a second set of formulas.

The first frequency band is a licensed spectrum and the second frequency band is an unlicensed spectrum.

[0130] For example, the operation that the terminal device determines the position of the second synchronization raster based on the second set of formulas includes operations as follows.

[0131] If the first frequency band is between 0 and 2650MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on a formula N × 900kHz+M × 5kHz+O1, N=1:[2944], M=-1:1.

[0132] If the first frequency band is between 2400 and 24250MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on a formula 2400MHz+N × 1.44MHz+O2, N= 0:[15173].

[0133] If the first frequency band is between 24250 and 100000MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on a formula [24250.08]MHz+N× [17.28]MHz+O3, N= 0:[4383].

[0134] O1, O2, and O3 denote synchronization raster offsets.

[0135] The operation that the terminal device determines the position of the first synchronization raster based on the first set of formulas includes operations as follows.

[0136] If the first frequency band is between 0 and 2650MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on the formula N × 900kHz+M × 5kHz, N=1:[2944], M=-1:1.

[0137] If the first frequency band is between 2400 and 24250MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on the formula 2400MHz+N× 1.44MHz, N= 0:[15173].

[0138] If the first frequency band is between 24250 and 100000MHz, the position of the first synchronization raster is determined based on the formula [24250.08] MHz+N × [17.28]MHz, N= 0:[4383].
