If there is no activity, or if the activity is below a threshold, the transmitter node (20, 40), in a second time resource, transmits an indicator indicating that one or more physical signals are also transmitted in the second time resource. A receiver node (30, 50) detects if an indicator is present in the time resource. If the receiver node (30, 50) detects the indicator, the receiver node (30, 50) may also receive and use one or more reference signals in the current time resource for doing one or more tasks.

Some demonstrative embodiments include apparatuses, devices, systems and methods of dynamic allocation using a grant frame. For example, a wireless station may be able to generate a grant frame including a duration field and a Dynamic Allocation Info field, the Dynamic Allocation Info field including an allocation duration subfield and an access mode subfield, the access mode subfield to indicate an access mode of an allocation according to the grant frame; and to transmit the grant frame.



METHOD FOR TRANSMITTING AN UPLINK REFERENCE SIGNAL IN A MULTI-NODE SYSTEM AND TERMINAL USING SAME

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 08:00:00 EDT

A method of transmitting an uplink reference signal of a user equipment (UE) in a multi-node system is described. The method according to an embodiment includes receiving a synchronization signal from a node; receiving a parameter for a virtual cell identifier(ID) from the node; generating an uplink demodulation reference signal(DM-RS) using the parameter for the virtual cell ID; and transmitting the generated uplink DM-RS to the node. A physical cell ID is a cell ID obtained from the synchronization signal, and the parameter for the virtual cell ID is a parameter used for generating the uplink DM-RS in the replacement of the physical cell ID.



METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR PROCESSING UPLINK DATA BY DRX-MODE TERMINAL IN MOBILE TELECOMMUNICATION SYSTEM

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 08:00:00 EDT

Disclosed is a method and apparatus for transmitting data by a terminal in a mobile telecommunication system, the method including transmitting a scheduling request for requesting resources for transmitting the data, monitoring a control channel to receive resource allocation information, continuously monitoring the control channel during a first period if the resources are allocated, transmitting the data based on the allocated resources, and monitoring the control channel to receive feedback information corresponding to the data during a second period following the transmission of the data.



USER TERMINAL, BASE STATION AND TRANSMISSION CONTROL METHOD

Thu, 25 Aug 2016 08:00:00 EDT

The present invention is designed so that uplink transmission is carried out adequately even when CA to apply different duplex modes between multiple cells is executed. A user terminal communicates with an FDD cell and a TDD cell by employing carrier aggregation, and has a receiving section that receives DL signals transmitted from each cell, a transmission control section that allocates and transmits delivery acknowledgement signals in response to the received DL signals, channel quality information or scheduling requests in predetermined UL subframes, and, when a UL subframe is configured in both the FDD cell and the TDD cell, the transmission control section transmits a delivery acknowledgement signal in one UL subframe or both UL subframes, and controls whether or not to transmit channel quality information or a scheduling request having an overlapping transmission timing with the delivery acknowledgement signal.
