Description


[0001] This disclosure claims priority to Chinese patent application No. 201810301332.1 filed with the CNIPA on April 04, 2018, disclosure of which is incorporated herein by reference in its entirety.

TECHNICAL FIELD



[0002] The present application relates to the field of communications and, for example, to time domain resource determination and detection methods and apparatuses, a storage medium and an electronic device.

BACKGROUND



[0003] In the related art, communications are performed by a carrier frequency, such as 28 gigahertz (GHz) or 45 GHz, that is higher than a carrier frequency used in a 4th generation mobile communication system (4G). This high-frequency channel has disadvantages of large free propagation loss, easy absorption by oxygen, and great impact by rain attenuation, which seriously affect the coverage performance of a high-frequency communication system. To ensure that a high-frequency communication and a long term evolution (LTE) system have similar signal to interference plus noise ratio (SINR) within a coverage range, it is necessary to ensure antenna gains of the high-frequency communication. A carrier frequency of the high frequency communication has a shorter wavelength, ensuring that more antenna elements can be accommodated in per unit area. The more antenna elements mean that a beamforming method may be used to improve the antenna gains so as to ensure the coverage performance of the high frequency communication.

[0004] Using the beamforming method, a transmitting end may concentrate transmitting energy in one direction, while the transmitting energy is small or free in other directions. That is, each beam has its own directivity and may only cover terminals in a certain direction, and the transmitting end, that is, a base station, needs to transmit multiple beams to implement full coverage. For example, the number of beams ranges from tens to hundreds. To meet access requirements of terminals in multiple directions, it is necessary to implement all-directional coverage of system broadcast messages. A communication station needs to repeatedly send the same system broadcast message in multiple beam directions. For the communication station, the "absolute overheads" of system broadcast messages also becomes larger.

[0005] In a new radio (NR) communication system, system information is divided into minimum system information (minimum SI) and other system information (OSI). The minimum system information is divided into master information block (MIB) carried by a physical broadcast channel (PBCH) and remaining minimum system information (RMSI) carried by a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH). The RMSI is carried by the PDSCH and scheduled by a corresponding physical downlink control channel (PDCCH). The MIB is used for providing a basic system parameter of a cell. The remaining minimum system information is used for providing configuration information related to initial access, such as sending configuration of a initial access request, and receiving configuration of a initial access response message. Other system information that needs to be broadcasted is referred to as other system information. RMSI transmission is as shown in FIG. 1. FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram of RMSI transmission according to the related art. Time division multiplexing or frequency division multiplexing between the RMSI and a synchronization signal physical broadcast channel block (SS/PBCH block, SSB) is supported in the standards.

[0006] In view of the mode of time division multiplexing, FIG. 2 is a schematic diagram of time division multiplexing transmission for RMSI according to the related art. As shown in FIG. 2, during the RMSI transmission, the RMSI transmission may overlap with the transmission for the synchronous signal physical broadcast channel block, and the RMSI may even be mapped in the same slot as the SSB. As regards RMSI PDSCH reception, when it is specified in the current standard that a terminal receives the PDSCH according to an indication in RMSI PDCCH resource allocation, it is not regarded that the PDSCH contains a resource for SSB transmission. This does not mean that the RMSI transmission has a higher priority than the SSB transmission, but rather a limit for the base to consider a resource occupied by the SSB when the base station allocates an RMSI resource and avoiding scheduling an RMSI PDSCH onto the resource occupied by the SSB. The terminal cannot know actual transmission location information of the SSB when the RMSI is received, therefore, in a case where the RMSI resource overlaps the SSB resource, the terminal cannot implement rate matching based RMSI PDSCH reception according to the location of the SSB resource.

[0007] In the time domain resource allocation according to the related art, the PDSCH is only supported to occupy multiple consecutive symbols in a slot. As regards the RMSI transmission, in view of the preceding particularity, the resource allocation for the RMSI PDSCH is greatly limited in a case where the SSB occupies a middle symbol of a certain slot, and even the RMSI PDSCH transmission cannot be implemented in the certain slot. It can be seen that the time domain resource allocation in the related art is not applicable to the RMSI.

[0008] In view of the preceding problem in the related art, no effective solution has yet been proposed.

[0026] Through the preceding steps, a time domain resource for the second channel signal in a slot is allocated, and thus the first channel signal and the second channel signal can be transmitted in the slot corresponding to the second SCS. Therefore, the technical problem in the related art that only the second channel signal is supported to be transmitted on multiple consecutive symbols in the slot is solved, resource allocation limit is avoided and the efficiency and the flexibility of the resource allocation is improved.

[0033] In an embodiment, among the symbols occupied by the second channel signal, an interval between two adjacent groups of consecutive symbols is an integer multiple of the number of symbols occupied by the first channel signal.

[0034] In an embodiment, the symbols occupied by the second channel signal include consecutive P symbols. P is an integer satisfying 0 < P ≤ 14.

[0035] In an embodiment, a time domain resource other than the symbols occupied by the second channel signal corresponds to at least one of: one or more mapping patterns for the first channel signal, a mapping pattern for a physical downlink control channel, or a mapping pattern for a guard period and a physical uplink control channel.

Embodiment three



[0059] In a scheme of the embodiment, a first channel signal is a SSB. Mapping patterns for SSBs in slots can be different with different subcarrier spacings. The mapping patterns include the cases described below.

[0060] Case A: As shown in FIG 5, FIG 5 is a mapping pattern for SSBs in a slot according to an embodiment. The SSB mapping pattern shown in FIG 5 corresponds to a SSB mapping pattern with a subcarrier spacing of 15 kHz. FIG 5 illustrates transmission resources for multiple SSBs. A 15 kHz slot (that is, 14 symbols of 15 kHz, which are symbol 0 to symbol 13) contains two SSBs. Each of the two SSBs occupies 4 symbols of 15 kHz. The two SSBs are mapped onto symbol 2 to symbol 5 and symbol 8 to symbol 11 respectively.

[0061] Case B: As shown in FIG. 6, FIG. 6 is a mapping pattern for SSBs in slots according to an embodiment. The SSB mapping pattern shown in FIG. 6 corresponds to a SSB mapping pattern with a subcarrier spacing of 30 kHz. FIG. 6 illustrates transmission resources for multiple SSBs. Two 30 kHz slots (that is, 28 symbols of 30 kHz, which are two groups of symbol 0 to symbol 13) contain four SSBs. Each of the four SSBs occupies 4 symbols of 30 kHz. The four SSBs are mapped onto symbol 4 to symbol 7 in a first slot, symbol 8 to symbol 11 in the first slot, symbol 2 to symbol 5 in a second slot, and symbol 6 to symbol 9 in the second slot respectively.

[0062] Case C: As shown in FIG. 7, FIG. 7 is another mapping pattern for SSBs in slots according to an embodiment. The SSB mapping pattern shown in FIG. 7 corresponds to a SSB mapping pattern with a subcarrier spacing of 30 kHz. FIG. 7 illustrates transmission resources for multiple SSBs. Two 30 kHz slots (that is, 28 symbols of 30 kHz, which are two groups of symbol 0 to symbol 13) contain four SSBs. Each of the four SSBs occupies 4 symbols of 30 kHz. The four SSBs are mapped onto symbol 2 to symbol 5 in a first slot, symbol 8 to symbol 11 in the first slot, symbol 2 to symbol 5 in a second slot, and symbol 8 to symbol 11 in the second slot respectively.

[0063] Case D: As shown in FIG. 8, FIG 8 is another mapping pattern for SSBs in slots according to an embodiment. The SSB mapping pattern shown in FIG. 8 corresponds to a SSB mapping pattern with a subcarrier spacing of 120 kHz. FIG. 8 illustrates transmission resources for multiple SSBs. Two 120 kHz slots (that is, 28 symbols of 120 kHz, which are two groups of symbol 0 to symbol 13) contain four SSBs. Each of the four SSBs occupies 4 symbols of 120 kHz. The four SSBs are mapped onto symbol 4 to symbol 7 in a first slot, symbol 8 to symbol 11 in the first slot, symbol 2 to symbol 5 in a second slot, and symbol 6 to symbol 9 in the second slot respectively.

[0064] Case E: As shown in FIG. 9, FIG. 9 is another mapping pattern for SSBs in slots according to an embodiment. The SSB mapping pattern shown in FIG. 9 corresponds to a SSB mapping pattern with a subcarrier spacing of 240 kHz. FIG. 9 illustrates transmission resources for multiple SSBs. Two 120 kHz slots (that is, 56 symbols of 240 kHz, which are symbol 0 to symbol 55) contain eight SSBs. Each of the eight SSBs occupies 4 symbols of 240 kHz which are numbered into symbols within the preceding time period (56 symbols). The eight SSBs are mapped onto symbol 8 to symbol 11, symbol 12 to symbol 15, symbol 16 to symbol 19, symbol 20 to symbol 23, symbol 32 to symbol 35, symbol 36 to symbol 39, symbol 40 to symbol 43, and symbol 44 to symbol 47.

[0065] The preceding description illustrates the cases of symbol occupation when a SSB is mapped onto a slot with the same subcarrier spacing as the SSB. In a case where the SSB is mapped onto a slot with a subcarrier spacing different from that of the SSB, an absolute time location occupied by the SSB remains unchanged, and an index of a occupied symbol can be translated into an index of a symbol for a target subcarrier spacing.

[0066] For example, as shown in Table 1, in a case whrere a 15 kHz SSB is mapped onto a 30 kHz slot, there are two 30 kHz slots containing two SSBs, and the two SSBs occupy symbol 4 to symbol 11 in a first 30 kHz slot, and symbol 2 to symbol 9 in a second 30 kHz slot.

[0067] For RMSI reception, it can be regarded that a SSB with a certain subcarrier spacing is mapped onto a slot corresponding to a subcarrier spacing of RMSI. Time domain allocation locations are described for different combinations of the SSB and the RMSI subcarrier spacing in subsequent embodiments.

[0068] In an embodiment, pattern 1 is for time division multiplexing between the SSB and the RMSI. As shown in Table 2, for pattern 1, the number and locations of RMSI search space symbols are described below. The RMSI search space is used to carry an RMSI PDCCH. Gray Dc denodes a second search space location in a slot. Note: It is also feasible to send only a PDCCH in a second search space in the slot (that is, corresponding to configurations 13 to 19).





[0069] The embodiment provides a time domain resource allocation method and system. The method includes allocating disconsecutive PDSCH time domain resources, defining an RMSI time domain resource allocation list for different subcarrier spacing combinations, defining time domain resource allocation in view of a mapping location of a SSB in a slot, and supporting a PDCCH to schedule a PDSCH located in preceding symbols in the same slot.

[0070] This embodiment further includes the implementation solutions described below for explaining the shceme of the embodiment in different SCS combinations.

[0071] Implementation one:



[0072] In a case where the subcarrier spacing (SCS) combination {SSB, RMSI} = {15, 15} kHz, Table 3 shows mapping locations of SSBs in a slot, and possible locations of an RMSI search space. Based on this, Table 3 shows time domain allocation patterns for an RMSI PDSCH in a case where there are some or all SSBs.





[0073] As shown in Table 4, Dc denotes a symbol where the RMSI search space is locate in the slot. In view of search space locations 1, 2, 4 or 10, search space locations 1, 2, 4 and 10 are considered as a classification since the symbol locations of search space locations 1, 2, 4 or 10 do not exceed the second symbol. In view of search space locations 3, 5 or 6, search space locations 3, 5 and 6 are considered as a classification since the last symbol of search space locations 3, 5 and 6 is the third symbol. In a case where a slot includes two search spaces, a second search space is denoted in gray. SSB in the table denotes a symbol onto which a SSB is mapped. Dd denotes a symbol occupied by a PDSCH. In a case where a slot contains two search spaces, a symbol in the second search space, occupied by the PDSCH and allocated by a PDCCH is denoted in gray.





[0074] Table 5 shows possible time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot RMSI located contains no SSB.





[0075] When labels of Dc symbols and SSB symbols in Tables 4 and 5 are hided and only labels of PDSCH symbols (that is, Dd) in Tables 4 and 5 are retained, each row in Tables 4 and 5 corresponds to a time domain resource allocation pattern. That is, a set of symbols labeled Dd in each row is defined as a time domain resource allocation pattern. Identical resource allocation patterns are merged and time domain resource allocation pattern sets as showed in Table 6 is obtained. That is, Table 6 shows sets of possible time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where SCS combination {SSB, RMSI} = {15, 15} kHz. There are 34 sets in total. Multiple sets can be selected from among the 34 sets, and the time domain allocation can be indicated by the corresponding number of bits in an RMSI PDCCH. For example, 32 sets are selected from the 34 time domain resource allocation pattern sets to serve as default time domain resource allocation pattern sets for the RMSI, and correspondingly, a currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to a terminal by 5 bits. For another example, in the standard, 15 sets selected from the 34 time domain resource allocation pattern sets are defined as the default time domain resource allocation pattern sets for the RMSI, and correspondingly, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to the terminal by 4 bits, in which there is one reserved state.

[0076] In the indication for time domain resource allocation patterns according to the embodiment, in view of a combination of a specific first SCS (corresponding to the SSB) and a second SCS (corresponding to at least one of RMSI, OSI, paging, msg2 or msg4), time domain resource allocation patterns where the slot contains the SSB (Table 4) and time domain resource allocation patterns where the slot contains no SSB (Table 5) are combined into a time domain resource allocation pattern set. The currently used time domain resource allocation pattern in the set is indicated to the terminal by downlink control information (DCI) signaling. Different combinations of first SCS and the second SCS can correspond to a same or a different time domain resource allocation pattern set for the second signal channel.

[0077] In some other implementations, multiple time domain resource allocation pattern sets can be defined for the combination of the first SCS and the second SCS (including that a combination of one first SCS and one second SCS corresponds to multiple time domain resource allocation pattern sets, or mulitiple combinations of first SCS and second SCS corresponds to multiple time domain resource allocation pattern sets). Firstly, a used time domain resource allocation pattern set is indicated to the terminal by a DCI signaling. Then, a currently used time domain resource allocation pattern in the designated set is indicated to the terminal by the DCI signaling. For example, there are two time domain resource allocation pattern sets are defined, one corresponds to the time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot contains the SSB (Table 4) and the other corresponds to the time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot contians no SSB (Table 5). The currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set is indicated to the terminal by 1 bit in the downlink control information (DCI), and the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern in the indicated time domain resource allocation pattern set is also indicated. In this case, the terminal determine at least one time domain resource allocation pattern set according to a acquired first SCS (which can corresponds to a frequency band, where the terminal can determine the first SCS according to the current frequency band to which the first signal channel belongs, alternatively, the terminal determines the first SCS by blindly detecting the first channel signal, that is, the terminal uses different SCSs to detect the first signal channel and determines the value of the first SCS according to whether the detection is successful) and acquired second SCS (which can be a SCS notificated by a base station. For example, the second SCS is notificated in a physical broadcast channel. Alternatively, the second SCS can be predefined or corresponds to the frequency band), and determines one time domain resource allocation pattern in the at least one time domain resource allocation pattern set according to a DCI indication.

[0078] For the time domain allocation patterns where the slot contains no SSB, it is also feasible to be indicated by an existing indication method for time domain resource allocation. That is, the currently used time domain resource allocation is indicated by a parameter "start and length indicator (SLIV)". Each SLIV index corresponds to a symbol allocation scheme, which can uniquely indicate a starting symbol of allocated symbols and the number of allocated symbols. For the time domain resource allocation patterns where the slot contains the SSB, the currently used time domain resource allocation can be indicated by listing time domain resource allocation patterns in a table in conjunction with the DCI signaling.

[0079] In some other implementations, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set can be indicated by definig a correspondence between a slot type and a time domain resource allocation pattern set rather than by information bits in the downlink control information. For example, a slot is divided into the following two classifications: a slot containing a transmission resource for the first channel signal (SSB), and a slot containing no transmission resource for the first channel signal (SSB). In this case, for the slot containing the transmission resource for the first channel signal (SSB), the terminal determine "the time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot contains the SSB (Table 4)" to serve as the currently used the time domain resource allocation pattern set; for the slot containing no transmission resource for the first channel signal (SSB), the terminal determines "the time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot contains no SSB (Table 5)" to serve as the time domain resource allocation pattern set. In an embodiment, the base station indicates the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern to the terminal by the downlink control information.

[0080] In an embodiment, in a certain combination of the first SCS and the second SCS, multiple time domain resource allocation pattern sets are defined, and the terminal determines a currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set for the slot according to a current slot type.

[0081] Since the terminal does not know whether a SSB is actually transmitted in a certain slot containing a SSB transmission resource, "whether a transmission resource for the first channel signal (SSB) is contained" is used herein as the basis for distinguishing slot types, rather than using "whether the first channel signal (SSB) is contained" as the basis for distinguishing slot types.

[0082] In some other embodiments, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set can be only notificated by a DCI signaling. That is, the domain resource allocation pattern set is not related to combinations of SCS, multiple defined time domain resource allocation pattern sets are applicable to all combinations of the first SCS and the second SCS, and the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set is notificated only by signaling.

[0083] In some other embodiments, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set can be determined according to only the slot type. That is, the domain resource allocation pattern set is not related to combinations of SCS and is not notificated by signaling.

[0084] In some other embodiments, the time domain resource allocation pattern set can be determined by the slot type and the DCI signaling. That is, multiple time domain resource allocation pattern sets are determined by the slot type, and a currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set is informed by the DCI signaling. Alternatively, a group of time domain resource allocation pattern sets is indicated by the DCI signaling, and a currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set is determined according to the slot type by a UE.

[0085] In some other implementations, the time domain resource allocation pattern set can be determined by combinations of SCS, the slot type and the DCI signaling.

[0086] Note: a predefinition of a correspondece between indication manners and the time domain resource allocation pattern sets is needed, no matter the time domain resource allocation pattern set is determined by which indication manner. In an embodiment, the predefinition can be specified in a protocol.

[0087] Note: In some other implementations, signaling carried on other carriers, for example, radio resource control (RRC) signaling carried on other carriers can be used in stead of the DCI signaling mentioned in aforementioned implementations. The preceding description is avilable to other implementations.

[0088] Implementation two:



[0089] In a case where the subcarrier spacing (SCS) combination {SSB, RMSI} = {15, 30} kHz, Table 7 shows mapping locations of SSBs in a slot, and possible locations of an RMSI search space (that is, Dc denotes a symbol where the RMSI search space is located in the slot). Based on this, Table 7 shows time domain allocation patterns for an RMSI PDSCH in a case where there are some or all SSBs. In the embodiment, in view of space location 1, 2, 4 or 10, symbol locations do not exceed the second symbol, the search space locations 1, 2, 4 and 10 are considered as a classification. In view of the last symbol of search space location 3, 5 or 6 is the third symbol, the search space locations 3, 5 and 6 are considered as a classification. In a case where the slot includes two search spaces, a second search space is denoted in gray. SSB denotes symbols onto which a SSB is mapped. Dd denotes a symbol occupied by the PDSCH. In a case where a slot contains two search spaces, a symbol in the second search space, occupied by the PDSCH and allocated by a PDCCH is denoted in gray.



[0090] Possible time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot RMSI located contains no SSB still refer to Table 5.

[0091] When labels of Dc symbols and SSB symbols in Tables 7 and 5 are hided and only labels of PDSCH symbols (that is, Dd) in Tables 7 and 5 are retained, each row in Tables 7 and 5 corresponds to a time domain resource allocation pattern. That is, a set of symbols labeled Dd in each row is defined as a time domain resource allocation pattern. Identical resource allocation patterns are merged and a time domain resource allocation table as shown in Table 8 is obtained. Table 8 shows possible time domain resource allocation manners in a case where SCS combination {SSB, RMSI} = {15, 30} kHz. There are 28 manners in total. Multiple manners can be selected from among the 28 manners, and the time domain allocation can be indicated in an RMSI PDCCH by the corresponding number of bits. For example, a currently used time domain resource allocation for the PDSCH is indicated to a terminal by 4 bits, in which there are four reserved states. For another example, to reduce the bit overheads of the time domain resource allocation, in the standard, 16 manners among the 28 time domain resource allocation manners are defined as default time domain resource allocation pattern manners for the RMSI, and correspondingly, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to the terminal by 4 bits.

[0092] Implementation three:



[0093] In a case where the subcarrier spacing (SCS) combination {SSB, RMSI} = {30, 15} kHz, Table 9 shows mapping locations of SSBs mapping pattern 1 in a slot, and possible locations of an RMSI search space (that is, Dc denotes a symbol where the RMSI search space is located in the slot). Based on this, Table 9 shows time domain allocation patterns for an RMSI PDSCH in a case where there are some or all SSBs. Indexs of search space locations refer to Table 3. In view of space location 1, 2, 4 or 10, symbol locations do not exceed the second symbol, the search space locations 1, 2, 4 and 10 are considered as a classification. In view of the last symbol of search space location 3, 5 or 6 is the third symbol, the search space locations 3, 5 and 6 are considered as a classification. In a case where the slot includes two search spaces, a second search space is denoted in gray. SSB denotes symbols onto which a SSB is mapped. Dd denotes a symbol occupied by the PDSCH. In a case where a slot contains two search spaces, a symbol in the second search space, occupied by the PDSCH and allocated by a PDCCH is denoted in gray.







[0094] Table 10 shows mapping locations of SSB mapping pattern 1 in a slot, and possible locations of an RMSI search space (that is, Dc denotes a symbol where the RMSI search space is located in the slot). Based on this, Table 10 shows time domain allocation patterns for an RMSI PDSCH in a case where there are some or all SSBs.

[0095] When SSB0 is actually transmitted, search space location 1 is equivalent to search space location 3 without a SSB, which is not specifically listed in Table 10.







[0096] Possible time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot RMSI located contains no SSB still refer to Table 5.

[0097] When labels of Dc symbols and SSB symbols in Tables 10, 9 and 5 are hided and only labels of PDSCH symbols (that is, Dd) in Tables 10, 9 and 5 are retained, each row in Tables 9, 10 and 5 corresponds to a time domain resource allocation pattern. That is, a set of symbols labeled Dd in each row is defined as a time domain resource allocation pattern. Identical resource allocation patterns are merged and a time domain resource allocation table as shown in Table 11 is obtained. Table 11 shows possible time domain resource allocation manners in a case where SCS combination {SSB, RMSI} = {30, 15} kHz. There are 62 manners in total. Multiple manners can be selected from among the 62 manners, and the time domain allocation can be indicated by the corresponding number of bits in an RMSI PDCCH. For example, in the standard, currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set for the PDSCH is indicated to a terminal by 6 bits, in which there sre two reserved state. For another example, to reduce the bit overheads of the time domain resource allocation, in the standard, 16 manners among the 62 time domain resource allocation manners are defined as default time domain resource allocation pattern manners for the RMSI, and correspondingly, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to the terminal by 4 bits.

[0098] Additionally, Table 11 shows a universal set of time domain resource allocation for the RMSI PDSCH in the subcarrier spacing combination {SSB, RMSI} = {30, 15} kHz. Alternatively, time domain resource allocation tables for the RMSI PDSCH can be defined for different mapping patterns (that is, pattern 1 and pattern 2) of the 30 kHz SSB respectively, so as to reduce the overheads of indication.

[0099] Additionally, separate resource allocation tables are defined for different search space types. For example, different time domain resource allocation tables are defined according to the following cases: a slot contains only one search space; a slot contains two search spaces, and the PDCCH is contained within the first search space of the two search spaces; and a slot contains two search spaces, and the PDCCH is contained within the second search space of the two search spaces.

[0100] Implementation four:



[0101] In the case where the subcarrier spacing (SCS) combination {SSB, RMSI} = {30, 30} kHz, Tables 12 and 13 show mapping locations of SSB mapping pattern 1 in a slot, and possible locations of an RMSI search space (that is, Dc denotes a symbol where the RMSI search space is located in the slot). Based on this, Tables 12 and 13 show time domain allocation patterns for an RMSI PDSCH in a case where there are some or all SSBs. Indexs of search space locations refer to Table 3. In view of space location 1, 2, 4 or 10, symbol locations do not exceed the second symbol, the search space locations 1, 2, 4 and 10 are considered as a classification. In view of the last symbol of search space location 3, 5 or 6 is the third symbol, the search space locations 3, 5 and 6 are considered as a classification. In a case where the slot includes two search spaces, a second search space is denoted in gray. SSB denotes symbols onto which a SSB is mapped. Dd denotes a symbol occupied by the PDSCH. In a case where a slot contains two search spaces, a symbol in the second search space, occupied by the PDSCH and allocated by a PDCCH is denoted in gray.









[0102] Possible time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot RMSI located contains no SSB still refer to Table 5.

[0103] When labels of Dc symbols and SSB symbols in Tables 12, 13 and 5 are hided and only labels of PDSCH symbols (that is, Dd) in Tables 12, 13 and 5 are retained, each row in Tables 12, 13 and 5 corresponds to a time domain resource allocation pattern. That is, a set of symbols labeled Dd in each row is defined as a time domain resource allocation pattern. Identical resource allocation patterns are merged and a time domain resource allocation table as shown in Table 14 is obtained. In a case where SCS combination {SSB, RMSI} = {30, 30} kHz, there are 53 possible time domain resource allocation manners in total. Multiple manners can be selected from among the 53 manners, and the time domain allocation can be indicated by the corresponding number of bits in an RMSI PDCCH. For example, in the standard, currently used time domain resource allocation pattern set for the PDSCH is indicated to a terminal by 6 bits, in which there are 11 reserved states. For another example, to reduce the bit overheads of the time domain resource allocation, in the standard, 16 manners among the 53 time domain resource allocation manners are defined as default time domain resource allocation manners for the RMSI, and correspondingly, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to the terminal by 4 bits.

[0104] In the embodiment, in implementation one of 30 kHz SSB pattern 2, the time domain resource allocation is the same as that in a case where the subcarrier spacing combination {SSB, RMSI} = {15, 15} kHz. Table 6 can be reused as a universal set of time domain resource allocation configurations of 30 kHz SSB pattern 2.

[0105] Implementation five:



[0106] In a case where the subcarrier spacing (SCS) combination {SSB, RMSI} = {120, 60} kHz, Table 15 shows mapping locations of SSBs in a slot, and possible locations of an RMSI search space (that is, Dc denotes a symbol where the RMSI search space is located in the slot). Based on this, Table 15 shows time domain allocation patterns for an RMSI PDSCH in a case where there are some or all SSBs. In view of space location 1, 2, 4 or 10, symbol locations do not exceed the second symbol, the search space locations 1, 2, 4 and 10 are considered as a classification. In view of the last symbol of search space location 3, 5 or 6 is the third symbol, the search space locations 3, 5 and 6 are considered as a classification. In a case where the slot includes two search spaces, a second search space is denoted in gray. SSB denotes symbols onto which a SSB is mapped. Dd denotes a symbol occupied by the PDSCH.In a case where a slot contains two search spaces, a symbol in the second search space, occupied by the PDSCH and allocated by a PDCCH is denoted in gray. The time domain resource allocation at search space locations 1 to 9 in Table 15 is the same as that of 30 kHz SSB mapping pattern 1 in implementation three, which is not repeated here.







[0107] Possible time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot RMSI located contains no SSB still refer to Table 5.

[0108] When labels of Dc symbols and SSB symbols in Tables 15 and 5 are hided and only labels of PDSCH symbols (that is, Dd) in Tables 15 and 5 are retained, each row in Tables 15 and 5 corresponds to a time domain resource allocation pattern. That is, a set of symbols labeled Dd in each row is defined as a time domain resource allocation pattern. Identical resource allocation patterns are merged and a time domain resource allocation table as shown in Table 16 is obtained. In SCS combination {SSB, RMSI} = {30, 30} kHz, there are 54 possible time domain resource allocation manners. Additionally, time domain resource allocation at search space locations 1 to 9 is the same as that of 30 kHz SSB mapping pattern 1 in implementation three. The 54 manners and the resource allocation corresponding to the search space described above in Table 11 are combined together as a universal set of time domain resource allocation. Multiple time domain resource allocation manners can be selected from the universal set, and the time domain allocation is indicated by the corresponding number of bits in an RMSI PDCCH. For example, in the standard, the currently used time domain resource allocation for the PDSCH is indicated to a terminal by 6 bits, in which there are 11 reserved states. For another example, to reduce the bit overheads of the time domain resource allocation, in the standard, 16 manners among the multiple time domain resource allocation manners are defined as default time domain resource allocation manners for the RMSI, and correspondingly, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to the terminal by 4 bits.

[0109] Implementation six:



[0110] In a case where the subcarrier spacing (SCS) combination {SSB, RMSI} = {120, 120} kHz, Table 17 shows mapping locations of SSBs in a slot, and possible locations of an RMSI search space (that is, Dc denotes a symbol where the RMSI search space is located in the slot). Based on this, Table 17 shows time domain allocation patterns for an RMSI PDSCH in a case where there are some or all SSBs. In the embodiment, the situation of search space location {1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8} is the same as the resource allocation situation of corresponding search spaces in Tables 12 and 13, which is not repeated here.

[0111] In a case where the slot includes two search spaces, a second search space of the two search spaces is denoted in gray. SSB denotes a symbol onto which a SSB is mapped. Dd denotes a symbol occupied by the PDSCH. In a case where a slot contains two search spaces, a symbol in the second search space, occupied by the PDSCH and allocated by a PDCCH is denoted in gray.





[0112] Possible time domain resource allocation patterns in a case where the slot RMSI located contains no SSB still refer to Table 5.

[0113] When labels of Dc symbols and SSB symbols in Tables 17 and 5 are hided and only labels of PDSCH symbols (that is, Dd) in Tables 17 and 5 are retained, each row in Tables 17 and 5 corresponds to a time domain resource allocation pattern. That is, a set of symbols labeled Dd in each row is defined as a time domain resource allocation pattern. Identical resource allocation patterns are merged and a time domain resource allocation table as shown in Table 18 is obtained. In a case where SCS combination {SSB, RMSI} = {120, 120} kHz, there are 31 possible time domain resource allocation manners in total. Additionally, for search space allocation {1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8}, the 31 possible time domain resource allocation manners and resource allocation situation of corresponding search spaces in Table 12 and Table 13 are combined together as a universal set of time domain resource allocation. Multiple time domain resource allocation manners can be selected from the universal set, and the time domain allocation is indicated by the corresponding number of bits in an RMSI PDCCH. For example, in the standard, the currently used time domain resource allocation for the PDSCH is indicated to a terminal by 6 bits, in which there are 10 reserved states. For another example, to reduce the bit overheads of the time domain resource allocation, in the standard, 16 manners aomng the universal set for time domain resource allocation are defined as default time domain resource allocation manners for the RMSI, and correspondingly, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to the terminal by 4 bits.

[0114] Implementation seven:



[0115] In a case where the subcarrier spacing (SCS) combination {SSB, RMSI} = {240, 60} kHz, Table 19 shows mapping locations of SSBs in a slot, and possible locations of an RMSI search space (that is, Dc denotes a symbol where the RMSI search space is located in the slot). Based on this, Table 19 shows time domain allocation patterns for an RMSI PDSCH in a case where there are some or all SSBs.

[0116] In this case, an RMSI slot contains 8 SSBs. To simplify the number of possible time domain allocation patterns, it is assumed that actual sending states for four consecutive SSBs (that is, SSBs 0 to 3, or SSBs 4 to 7) are the same. In a case a certain SSB among SSBs 0 to 3 is actually sent, when a base station allocates a time domain resource for the RMSI PDSCH, it is regarded that all of SSBs 0 to 3 are sent. It is the same for SSBs 4 to 7. As shown in Table 19, different time domain allocation patterns are given. In the case where the slot includes two search spaces, a second search space of the two search spaces is denoted in gray. SSB denotes a symbol onto which a SSB is mapped. Dd denotes a symbol occupied by the PDSCH. In a case where a slot contains two search spaces, a symbol in the second search space, occupied by the PDSCH and allocated by a PDCCH is denoted in gray.





[0117] When labels of Dc symbols and SSB symbols in Tables 19 and 5 are hided and only labels of PDSCH symbols (that is, Dd) in Tables 19 and 5 are retained, each row in Tables 19 and 5 corresponds to a time domain resource allocation pattern. That is, a set of symbols labeled Dd in each row is defined as a time domain resource allocation pattern. Identical resource allocation patterns are merged and a time domain resource allocation table as shown in Table 20 is obtained. In the case where SCS combination {SSB, RMSI} = {240, 60} kHz, there are 32 possible time domain resource allocation manners in total, which served as a universal set of time domain resource allocation. Multiple time domain resource allocation manners can be selected from the universal set, and the time domain allocation is indicated by the corresponding number of bits in an RMSI PDCCH. For example, in the standard, the currently used time domain resource allocation for the PDSCH is indicated to a terminal by 5 bits, and a correspondence between multiple time domain resource allocation manners and values of the indication bits is defined. For another example, to reduce the bit overheads of the time domain resource allocation, in the standard, 16 manners among the 32 time domain resource allocation manners are defined as default time domain resource allocation manners for the RMSI, a correspondence between multiple time domain resource allocation manners and values of the indication bits is defined, and correspondingly, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to the terminal by 4 bits.

[0121] When labels of Dc symbols and SSB symbols in Tables 21 and 5 are hided and only labels of PDSCH symbols (that is, Dd) in Tables 21 and 5 are retained, each row in Tables 21 and 5 corresponds to a time domain resource allocation pattern. That is, a set of symbols labeled Dd in each row is defined as a time domain resource allocation pattern. Identical resource allocation patterns are merged and a time domain resource allocation table as Table 22 is obtained. In the case where SCS combination {SSB, RMSI} = {240, 120} kHz, there are 39 possible time domain resource allocation manners in total, which served as a universal set of time domain resource allocation. Multiple time domain resource allocation manners can be selected from the universal set, and the time domain allocation pattern is indicated by the corresponding number of bits in an RMSI PDCCH. For example, in the standard, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to a terminal by 5 bits. 32 time domain resource allocation manners are selected from among the 39 time domain resource allocation manners, and a correspondence between multiple time domain resource allocation manners and values of the indication bits is defined. For another example, to reduce the bit overheads of the time domain resource allocation, in the standard, 16 manners among the 39 time domain resource allocation manners are defined as default time domain resource allocation manners for the RMSI, a correspondence between multiple time domain resource allocation manners and values of the indication bits is defined, and correspondingly, the currently used time domain resource allocation pattern for the PDSCH is indicated to the terminal by 4 bits.

Implementation nine



[0122] For transmission for a second signal channel and downlink control information corresponding to the second signal channel, one or more physical downlink control channel monitoring windows (PDCCH monitoring windows) are configured at a network side. Different monitoring windows are associated with different SSBs. A terminal determines, in response to a SSB reception, the location of a monitoring window that corresponds to this SSB and carries the second channel signal. In an embodiment, the second channel signal includes at least one of a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) carrying remaining minimum system information (RMSI), a PDSCH carrying paging information, a PDSCH carrying other system information (OSI), a PDSCH carrying random access response information, a PDSCH carrying random access collision resolution information, a PDSCH carrying MSG2, or a PDSCH carrying MSG4.

[0123] The terminal detects the downlink control information (DCI) corresponding to the second channel signal within the configured monitoring window according to a search space configuration. The monitoring window includes one or more slots. In a case where the monitoring window contains multiple slots, different monitoring windows can overlap each other. In this case, the monitoring window can contain multiple second channel signals (corresponding to different SSBs). A second channel signal having a quasi-co-location (QCL) relationship with the SSB detected by the terminal has higher detection performance, however, second channel signals corresponding to other SSBs can be firstly detected in monitoring windows by the terminal. Even if the reception is succesful, the access is not successful. Therefore, for the terminal, it cannot be assumed that only one second channel signal is transmitted in the multiple slots within one monitoring window. That is, the terminal needs to detect the downlink control information of the second channel signal in the one or more slots within the monitoring window corresponding to the second channel signal.

[0124] In an embodiment, in the cases described below in the subsequent process, the terminal needs to continue to detect the downlink control information of the second channel signal in other slots within the monitoring window.

[0125] Subexample 1: in a case where the terminal correctly detects the downlink control information of the second channel signal in a certain slot within the monitoring window, but does not correctly detect the second channel signal, the downlink control information of the second channel signal correctly detected by the terminal can not be the transmission in a beam direction or at a downlink port to which the terminal belongs (that is, the downlink control information successfully received does not have a quasi-co-location (QCL) relationship with the SSB previously detected by the terminal, but is just successfully received by the terminal due to the overlap of monitoring windows). Thus, the terminal needs to continue to detect the downlink control information of the second channel signal in other time slots within the monitoring window.

[0126] Subexample 2: in a case where the terminal correctly detects not only downlink control information of RMSI in a certain slot within the monitoring window, but also the RMSI, and performs preamble transmission according to random access configuration in the RMSI, but cannot correctly detect random access response information, the possible reason of this case is that the RMSI received by the terminal does not have a quasi-co-location (QCL) relationship with the SSB previously detected by the terminal. That is, the received RMSI is not the target RMSI to be received by the terminal, and a random access request (preamble) sent according to the configuration in this detected RMSI is incorrect, so a base station does not reply corresponding random access response information. Thus, the terminal continues to detect the downlink control information of the RMSI in other slots within the monitoring window corresponding to the second channel signal, and determines a subsequent random access request and reception configuration based on new reception.

[0127] The embodiment provides a time domain resource allocation method and system. A time domain resource allocation solution that does not conflict with SSB transmission resources is obtained in view of mapping patterns from SSBs to slots in different subcarrier spacing combinations.

[0128] The solution in the embodiment avoids resource allocation limits to an RMSI PDSCH caused by the existing time domain resource allocation mode where a PDSCH is only supported to occupy multiple consecutive symbols in a slot, thereby the efficiency and flexibility of resource allocation is improved. Additionally, time domain resource allocation lists are defined for different subcarrier spacing combinations, greatly reducing the overheads of the time domain resource allocation, and effectively supporting the time domain resource allocation for the RMSI PDSCH.
