Embodiment

Below in conjunction with the accompanying drawing in the embodiment of the invention, the technical scheme in the embodiment of the invention is clearly and completely described, obviously, described embodiment is a part of embodiment of the present invention, rather than whole embodiment.Based on the embodiment among the present invention, the every other embodiment that those of ordinary skills obtain under the prerequisite of not making creative work should belong to the scope of protection of the invention.

Should understand, technical scheme of the present invention can be applied to various communication systems, for example: global system for mobile telecommunications (GSM, Global System of Mobile communication) system, code division multiple access (CDMA, Code Division Multiple Access) system, Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA) (WCDMA, Wideband Code Division Multiple Access) system, GPRS (GPRS, General Packet Radio Service), Long Term Evolution (LTE, Long Term Evolution) system, advanced Long Term Evolution (LTE-A, Long term evolution-Advanced) system, universal mobile telecommunications system (UMTS, Universal Mobile Telecommunication System) etc., the embodiment of the invention does not limit, but for convenience of description, the embodiment of the invention will be that example describes with the LTE network.

The embodiment of the invention can be used for the wireless network of different standards.Radio Access Network can comprise different network elements in different systems.For example, LTE (Long Term Evolution, Long Term Evolution) and LTE-A (Long term evolution-Advanced, advanced Long Term Evolution) network element of Radio Access Network comprises eNB (eNodeB in, evolved base station), WCDMA (Wideband Code Division Multiple Access, Wideband Code Division Multiple Access (WCDMA)) network element of Radio Access Network comprises RNC (Radio Network Controller in, radio network controller) and NodeB, similarly, WiMax (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access, worldwide interoperability for microwave inserts) wait other wireless network also can use and the similar scheme of the embodiment of the invention, just the correlation module in the base station system may be different, the embodiment of the invention does not limit, but for convenience of description, following embodiment will be that example describes with eNodeB.

Will also be understood that, in embodiments of the present invention, subscriber equipment (UE, User Equipment) includes but not limited to travelling carriage (MS, Mobile Station), portable terminal (Mobile Terminal), mobile phone (Mobile Telephone), mobile phone (handset) and portable equipment (portable equipment) etc., this subscriber equipment can be through wireless access network (RAN, Radio Access Network) communicates with one or more core net, for example, subscriber equipment can be mobile phone (or being called " honeycomb " phone), have the computer of radio communication function etc., subscriber equipment can also be portable, pocket, hand-hold type, built-in computer or vehicle-mounted mobile device.

The CoMP transmission technology is introduced cooperation between a plurality of network equipments (being also referred to as node), and shares information (for example, channel condition information, schedule information and data message etc.) between network equipment, to eliminate presence of intercell interference.Can be applied to the cooperative multipoint transmission technology according to embodiments of the invention, yet, being not limited to this according to embodiments of the invention, embodiments of the invention can be used for a plurality of network equipments (or node) send scene from downstream signal to UE.

Figure 1A is the frame structure schematic diagram of LTE system.Referring to Figure 1A, a radio frames comprises 10 Transmission Time Intervals (Transmission Time Interval, TTI), each TTI comprises 14 symbols, each symbol (for example, the OFDM symbol) by Cyclic Prefix (Cyclic Prefix, CP) signal section and ofdm signal are partly formed, length is respectively d_cp and d_ofdm.The CP signal section is copying of ofdm signal decline signal partly.

Figure 1B illustrates the schematic diagram that UE receives the downstream signal of a network equipment.For example, in the t1 moment, network equipment sends downstream wireless signals, can experience different path because wireless signal is propagated aloft, therefore, has different time-delays when experiencing the downstream wireless signals arrival UE in different paths.If the distance that downstream wireless signals experiences from the network equipment to UE is d, then UE can receive that constantly (c represents the speed 3 * 10 of electromagnetic transmission to downstream wireless signals at t1+d/c 8M/s), Figure 1B shows downstream wireless signals through the example of three paths arrival UE, and corresponding distance is respectively d1, d2 and d3, and the signal that UE receives is the stack of these signals.Because the existence of CP, UE can be from t2 constantly, and intercepted length is the signal of d_ofdm, and for this three paths, the signal that intercepts all only comprises the signal of same symbol, so just can not disturb between created symbol.If there is not CP, then second path and Third Road footpath part signal foremost just belongs to previous symbol, at this moment, if come intercept signal according to the ofdm signal window shown in Figure 1B, then can cause intersymbol interference.

The downstream signal that network equipment sends can send according to the form of Figure 1B.If have only a network equipment to send downstream signal to UE, then UE just can only need to determine a down-going synchronous, can obtain other signal according to the form of Figure 1B, for example, in a TTI, UE can only determine that at the 1st downlink synchronous signal that symbol sends down-going synchronous regularly according to network equipment, again according to determined down-going synchronous regularly receive other all symbols (for example from t2 constantly after second symbol of 1 sign-on reception), in the prior art namely, UE only needs to receive all downstream signals according to single synchronization timing.

Fig. 1 C illustrates the schematic diagram that UE receives the downstream signal of heterogeneous networks side apparatus.When a plurality of network equipments are served same UE, will there be such problem: if used prior art, can cause UE (for example to determine the corresponding downlink synchronous signal of down-going synchronous, this signal is sent by network equipment 1) may be not from the consolidated network side apparatus with other signal (being sent by network equipment 2), will disturb between created symbol like this, make that the efficiency of transmission of CoMP technology is not high.For example, network equipment 1 is grand station, and network equipment 2 is little stations, and the distance of grand station and UE is than the distance of little station and UE, the transmitted power at grand station is greater than the transmitted power at little station, like this, though the more close network equipment 2 of UE,, because the difference of the transmitted power of these two network equipments, it is little that UE receives the power difference of signal of network equipment 1 and network equipment 2, and therefore, the signal influence each other that their send is very important.

Referring to Fig. 1 C, suppose that network equipment 1 and network equipment 2 all send signal to UE, then because the distance between network equipment 1 and the UE is bigger, therefore the UE signal that receives first footpath that network equipment 1 sends just is later than the signal that UE receives first footpath that network equipment 2 sends, if use prior art, UE receives signal from network equipment 1 and network equipment 2 according to the down-going synchronous of network equipment 1 correspondence, then can cause intersymbol interference.Particularly, UE at first determines the ofdm signal window according to the down-going synchronous of network equipment 1, and intercept signal in this ofdm signal window, for the signal that receives from network equipment 1, can not be subjected to the influence of intersymbol interference, and for the signal that receives from network equipment 2, because its signal arrives UE early than the signal that network equipment 1 sends, therefore, also comprise the signal (as black part sub-signal among Fig. 1 C) of next symbol in this ofdm signal window, namely introduced intersymbol interference.

The time that provides above can be the time with respect to the starting point of a symbol, for example, on absolute sense, the signal that network equipment 1 sends is to be numbered 0 symbol (namely for network equipment 1, t1 is the starting point that is numbered 0 symbol), the signal that network equipment 2 sends then is to be numbered 2 symbol (namely for network equipment 2, t1 is the starting point that is numbered 2 symbol); UE determines down-going synchronous regularly as if the signal that sends at the symbol that is numbered 0 according to network equipment 1, and regularly receives 2 symbols signal afterwards according to down-going synchronous, and intersymbol interference will take place.

Fig. 2 is the indicative flowchart of communication means according to an embodiment of the invention.The method of Fig. 2 is carried out by subscriber equipment.

210, determine first down-going synchronous regularly and determine that second down-going synchronous is regularly according to the detection signal that receives from network side.

220, regularly receive first downstream signal according to first down-going synchronous, regularly receive second downstream signal according to second down-going synchronous.

First downstream signal and second downstream signal can be respectively sent at identical carrier wave with second network equipment by first network equipment of network side.For example, first network equipment and second network side can be implemented as base station, access point (Access Point, AP), far-end wireless device (Remote Radio Equipment, RRE), far-end radio port (Remote Radio Head, RRH), the far-end radio-cell (Remote Radio Unit, RRU) or junction network side apparatus (Relay Node) etc.

For example, above-mentioned detection signal can be for the down-going synchronous of determining downstream signal downlink synchronous signal regularly.The timing of first down-going synchronous and second down-going synchronous are regularly respectively at first downstream signal and second downstream signal.

Can use different down-going synchronous to the different downstream signals that the heterogeneous networks side apparatus sends according to embodiments of the invention, in other words, can be so that UE regularly receives signal from first network equipment according to first down-going synchronous, regularly receive signal from second network equipment according to second down-going synchronous again, guaranteed down-going synchronous that UE determines downstream signal regularly used downlink synchronous signal and this downstream signal from the consolidated network side apparatus.

Can be so that UE regularly receive different downstream signals according to different down-going synchronous according to embodiments of the invention, with the intersymbol interference of avoiding these signals to be subjected to, thereby improved the efficiency of transmission of downstream signal.

In 210, can determine first down-going synchronous regularly according to first detection signal that receives, and determine that according to second detection signal that receives second down-going synchronous regularly.

For example, network equipment can send the signal that detects sequence modulation to UE, makes UE to obtain down-going synchronous by the signal of above-mentioned detection sequence modulation.For example, UE can obtain first down-going synchronous according to first signal that detects sequence modulation, first signal that detects sequence modulation includes but not limited to public reference signal (Common Reference Signal, CRS) or channel condition information-reference signal (Channel State Information-Reference Signal, CSI-RS).UE can obtain second down-going synchronous regularly according to second signal that detects sequence modulation, and second signal that detects sequence modulation includes but not limited to CRS or CSI-RS.

Alternatively, as another embodiment, the method for Fig. 2 also comprises: receive and the first detection signal information corresponding, wherein in 210, can receive first detection signal according to this and the first detection signal information corresponding, and determine that according to first detection signal first down-going synchronous regularly.

Alternatively, as another embodiment, the method for Fig. 2 also comprises: receive and the second detection signal information corresponding, wherein in 210, can receive second detection signal according to this and the second detection signal information corresponding, and determine that according to second detection signal second down-going synchronous regularly.

For example, network equipment can send the information corresponding with first down-going synchronous to UE, and UE receives the signal of the first detection sequence modulation according to this information after receiving this information.Equally, network equipment also can send the information corresponding with second down-going synchronous to UE, and UE receives the signal of the second detection sequence modulation according to this information after receiving this information.Here, the main body that sends information to UE is not limit, can be first network equipment, second network equipment or other network equipment, can also be the combination of these equipment, and for example first network equipment and second network equipment are united to UE and sent described information; This information can comprise the information (for example, the numbering of sequence) of time-frequency lattice point and sequence, and UE can know that according to this information the signal of which sequence modulation that will receive at which time-frequency lattice point is used for determining down-going synchronous.Be not limited to this according to embodiments of the invention, can also do not need network equipment to send corresponding synchronously information to UE, and come the signal of receiving sequence modulation according to existing information.For example, also can determine the time-frequency lattice point according to UE detected residential quarter ID in access network process, and at the signal of the described time-frequency lattice point reception first detection sequence modulation or the signal of the second detection sequence modulation, wherein, the signal of sequence modulation also can obtain by residential quarter ID, and obtains the time-frequency lattice point and can be preset in UE and network side according to the mode (or formula) that residential quarter ID obtains the signal of sequence modulation according to residential quarter ID.As a kind of embodiment of combination, for first down-going synchronous, UE can not need network equipment to receive the signal of the first detection sequence modulation to the synchronous corresponding information of UE transmission; For second down-going synchronous, network equipment can send the information corresponding with second down-going synchronous to UE, and UE receives the signal of the second detection sequence modulation according to this information after receiving this information.

According to embodiments of the invention, in 210, determine that according to first detection signal that receives first down-going synchronous regularly; Receive synchronism deviation information from this network side, wherein this synchronism deviation information is indicated downlink transfer time poor of downlink transfer time of first downstream signal and second downstream signal; And regularly determine that with this synchronism deviation information second down-going synchronous regularly according to first down-going synchronous.

For example, UE can receive synchronism deviation information from network side (first network equipment or second network equipment or center control nodes), and UE regularly determines that with this synchronism deviation information second down-going synchronous regularly according to first down-going synchronous.For example, the deviation information that network equipment sends the first down-going synchronous timing t 1 and the second down-going synchronous timing t 2 to UE (for example, t2-t1), UE determines the first down-going synchronous t1 according to the method for prior art, determines the second down-going synchronous t2 according to this deviation information again.

For example, first network equipment can be known the time of the signal that receives the UE transmission by the upward signal that detects the UE transmission, second network equipment can be known the time of the signal that receives the UE transmission by the upward signal that detects the UE transmission, first network equipment, second network equipment can be shared the time that they receive the signal of UE transmission separately, thereby can calculate the time deviation information of upward signal.Because the path of upward signal and downstream signal transmission experience is basic identical, therefore, just can determine the deviation information of down-going synchronous according to the time of reception deviation information of the upward signal that obtains, for example, first network equipment and second network equipment send downstream signal simultaneously, and then the time of reception deviation of upward signal also just equals the deviation of down-going synchronous.First network equipment, second network equipment and center control nodes can be shared the time of reception of upward signal, in order to calculate the down-going synchronous deviation information.

According to embodiments of the invention, first downstream signal is the control signaling, and second downstream signal is user data.

In other words, first downstream signal is used for control channel, and second downstream signal is used for transmitting user data.The control signaling is the PDCCH in the LTE system for example, and user data is the PDSCH in the LTE system for example.For example, in the CoMP technology, UE can receive the control signaling that a network equipment sends, and receives the user data that other network equipment sends.In this case, if UE regularly receives control signaling and user data according to identical down-going synchronous, then when big apart from difference between above-mentioned heterogeneous networks side apparatus and the UE, can be because intersymbol interference causes the poor-performing of UE when certain signal that receives wherein.Therefore, if adopt the method for embodiments of the invention, then can when using the down-going synchronous of heterogeneous networks side apparatus correspondence to receive control signaling and user data respectively, UE can take into account the performance that UE receives these two kinds of signals.

Alternatively, as another embodiment, first downstream signal is the control signaling, the reference signal of second downstream signal for being used for measuring.

In other words, first downstream signal is used for control channel, and second downstream signal is used for the reference signal of transmission measurement purposes.For example, before scheduling UE received user data, the downlink reference signal that also needs UE to send by the measurement network equipment obtained descending CSI and feeds back network equipment, in order to dispatch accurately according to channel conditions usually.Therefore, before second network equipment sends user data to UE, also need to send downlink reference signal (for example, the CSI-RS in the LTE system) to UE, be convenient to the down channel that UE measures the second network equipment correspondence.In other words, second downstream signal also can be the downlink reference signal of measuring for UE.

Alternatively, as another embodiment, first downstream signal is respectively the different reference signals that is used for measurement with second downstream signal.

In other words, first downstream signal and second downstream signal are respectively applied to transmit the reference signal of different measurement purposes.For example, before transmission first downstream signal, also need UE to obtain descending CSI and feedback by the downlink reference signal of measuring the network equipment transmission, in order to dispatch accurately according to channel conditions, therefore, first downstream signal also can be the downlink reference signal of measuring for UE.

Alternatively, as another embodiment, first downstream signal should be controlled the reference signal of signaling for being used for demodulation, and second downstream signal is for being used for the reference signal of demodulation user data.

In other words, first downstream signal can be for being used for the reference signal of demodulation control signaling, and second downstream signal can be for being used for the reference signal of demodulation user data.For example, network equipment sends control signaling or user data to UE, all can send reference signal simultaneously usually, is convenient to UE and carries out channel estimating according to corresponding reference signal, control signaling or user data demodulation could be come out then.For example, in the LTE system, also can send CRS when network equipment sends control signaling to UE, when UE sends user data, also can send demodulated reference signal (Demodulation Reference Signal, DM RS); For the channel conditions that makes reference signal experience with to control signaling or user data identical, these reference signals also need to adopt the down-going synchronous identical with controlling signaling or user data.

According to embodiments of the invention, in same TTI, first downstream signal transmits in the different time with second downstream signal, and perhaps first downstream signal transmits at different subcarriers with second downstream signal.

In other words, first downstream signal and second downstream signal adopt the mode of time division multiplexing or frequency division multiplexing to transmit, be not limited to this according to embodiments of the invention, for example, first downstream signal and second downstream signal can also adopt the mode of code division multiplexing to transmit according to an embodiment of the invention.

For example, in same TTI, first downstream signal is transmitted in different time/frequencies with second downstream signal.In other words, these network equipments send the power that does not send signal on the time/frequency of signal or reduce signal the other side, can further reduce interference each other.By such method, just avoided the overlapping of first downstream signal and second downstream signal, thereby avoided the interference between them.Further, adopt different down-going synchronous just can obtain to avoid these two kinds of signals to produce the benefit of intersymbol interference to them respectively.

According to embodiments of the invention, at first downstream signal and second downstream signal under the situation of different time transmission, above-mentioned TTI comprises for the symbol of control channel and is used for the symbol of transmitting user data, first downstream signal is the control signaling, second downstream signal is user data, and the time span sum of the time span of first downstream signal and second downstream signal is less than the length of this Transmission Time Interval.

For example, if in same TTI, first downstream signal is transmitted in the different time with second downstream signal, then send to the time span sum of first downstream signal of UE and second downstream signal less than the length of a TTI, exist with the data-signal of avoiding control signaling that first network equipment sends and the transmission of second network equipment overlapping, thereby prevent phase mutual interference between the two.。

In 220, can regularly receive first downstream signal of the top n symbol transmission of this symbol that is used for control channel according to first down-going synchronous, wherein this N is used for the number of the symbol of control channel less than this.

For example, network equipment only sends control signaling to UE on the part symbol of the control signaling area of a TTI.UE only receives the signal of part N symbol of control signaling area, and this N symbol is the top n symbol of control signaling area.

In 220, can regularly receive second downstream signal of back M symbol transmission of this symbol that is used for transmitting user data according to second down-going synchronous, wherein this M is used for the number of the symbol of transmitting user data less than this.

For example, network equipment only sends user data to UE on the part symbol of the user data area of a TTI.UE only receives the signal of part M symbol of data area, and this M symbol is last M symbol of data area.

Alternatively, as another embodiment, the method of Fig. 1 also comprises: receive synchronous indication information from this network side, this synchronous indication information is used to indicate determines that second down-going synchronous regularly and according to second down-going synchronous regularly receives second downstream signal, wherein in 210, can after receiving this synchronous indication information, determine that second down-going synchronous regularly.

For example, network equipment sends many signalings that receive synchronously to UE, after UE receives, receives first downstream signal and second downstream signal according to different down-going synchronous.

Because the present invention UE of CoMP technology that has been application-oriented, and only have part UE to use the CoMP technology in a network, therefore UE does not know whether need to adopt the present invention to receive downstream signal, therefore, network equipment sends signaling to UE and notifies and need adopt first down-going synchronous to receive first downstream signal by use UE of the present invention, and adopt second down-going synchronous to receive second downstream signal, be convenient to UE and cooperate consistent with network equipment.

Alternatively, also can send this synchronous indication information to UE by first network equipment or second network equipment.

Should be understood that 620 is optional, for example, when the UE in the network in the time of may adopting the UE of CoMP technology, can omit 620.

630, the first network equipments can send first downlink synchronous signal to UE.

For example, in the LTE system, first downlink synchronous signal can be the detection sequence, for example, and CRS or CSI-RS.Fig. 4 A shows the time-frequency lattice point (being also referred to as a RE) of these signal correspondences, wherein the configuration of CRS can be by all UE of broadcast announcement, CRS exists at each TTI, and occupying the whole system bandwidth (is all Physical Resource Block shown in Fig. 4 B and Fig. 4 C (Physical Resource Block, PRB)).Because CRS density is bigger, obtains down-going synchronous by CRS and can obtain precision preferably.And the configuration of CSI-RS is notified single UE by the clean culture form, is not to exist at each TTI; Obtain down-going synchronous by CSI-RS, then can be by being chosen as the heterogeneous networks side apparatus that certain UE (for example by the UE of a plurality of network equipment federated service) sends CSI-RS neatly, thus make certain UE correspondingly carry out down-going synchronous with the heterogeneous networks side apparatus.

For example, can set in advance certain time-frequency lattice point at certain TTI in network side or UE side sends or receives and be specifically designed to CRS or the CSI-RS that carries out down-going synchronous.

Alternatively, network equipment can send the time-frequency lattice point information of the signal that detects sequence modulation to UE, the signal of the detection sequence modulation that UE can send according to this residential quarter of the time-frequency lattice point validation of information that receives, and obtain first down-going synchronous by the signal that detects this detection sequence modulation.

Alternatively, network equipment can further send first network equipment corresponding district sign (ID) to UE, make UE can confirm the signal of the detection sequence modulation that this residential quarter sends according to the first network equipment corresponding district ID, and obtain first down-going synchronous by detecting this signal.

640, UE can determine that first down-going synchronous regularly according to first downlink synchronous signal.

For example, UE (is for example receiving first downlink synchronous signal, adopt the CRS that detects sequence form) time, the CRS sequence that UE this locality can be obtained is carried out convolution operation with the CRS that receives, and with corresponding moment of value of surpassing thresholding at first among the result who obtains after the convolution operation as the moment that receives first downlink synchronous signal, and determine the timing of first down-going synchronous accordingly.Should be understood that definite downlink synchronizing method that can adopt other routine determines that first down-going synchronous regularly, does not repeat them here.

For example, can set in advance certain time-frequency lattice point at certain TTI in network side or UE side sends or receives and be specifically designed to CRS or the CSI-RS that carries out down-going synchronous.

Alternatively, second network equipment sends the time-frequency lattice point information of the signal that detects sequence modulation to UE, the signal of the detection sequence modulation that UE can send according to this residential quarter of the time-frequency lattice point validation of information that receives, and obtain second down-going synchronous by the signal that detects this detection sequence modulation.

Alternatively, second network equipment can further send the second network equipment corresponding district ID to UE, make UE can be according to the second network equipment corresponding district ID, confirm the signal of the detection sequence modulation that this residential quarter sends, and obtain second down-going synchronous by the signal that detects this detection sequence modulation.

670, UE can determine that second down-going synchronous regularly according to second downlink synchronous signal.

For example, UE (is for example receiving second downlink synchronous signal, adopt the CRS that detects sequence form) time, the CRS sequence that UE this locality can be obtained is carried out convolution operation with the CRS that receives, and with corresponding moment of value of surpassing thresholding at first among the result who obtains after the convolution operation as the moment that receives second downlink synchronous signal, and determine the timing of second down-going synchronous accordingly.

In addition, if the relation of first downstream signal and second downstream signal is shown in Fig. 4 B, then can there be the situation shown in Fig. 5 A, be that example describes below with N_t=2, be that network equipment 1 sends control signaling to UE at preceding 2 symbols, network equipment 2 sends control signaling to UE on 12 symbols in the back, if the distance of network equipment 1 and UE is greater than the distance of network equipment 2 with UE, then UE receives that the time of the signal of network equipment 1 is later than the time of the signal of receiving network equipment 2, like this, the control signaling that network equipment 1 sends at the 2nd symbol just with network equipment 2 exist at the 3rd data-signal that symbol sends overlapping, so will the phase mutual interference between the two.

In order to address this problem, can make network equipment 2 reduce the number of symbols that sends data-signal, shown in Fig. 5 B, be that network equipment 2 does not send signal (particularly to this UE on the 3rd symbol, in this symbol, do not send signal on the PRB of this UE distributing to, perhaps transmitted power is 0), so just avoided overlapping.Similarly, also can make network equipment 1 reduce the number of symbols that sends control signaling, repeat no more here.

In addition, in the prior art, the feature of each symbol that comprises among TTI is different, and for example shown in Fig. 4 A, CRS appears at and is numbered on 0,4,7,11 the symbol, and does not comprise CRS on other symbol; UE is when the signal of a TTI who receives the network equipment transmission, can remove to receive descending various signals according to such form (pattern), for example, form according to preceding 2 symbols (for example receives PDCCH, the 1st symbol in the PDCCH territory receives CRS), form according to 14-2 the symbol in back receives PDSCH (for example, the 3rd symbol in the PDSCH territory receives CRS).

According to embodiments of the invention, the PDCCH that UE receives is from first network equipment, and preceding 2 symbols of a corresponding TTI should (for example receive according to the form of preceding 2 symbols, the 1st symbol in the PDCCH territory receives CRS, and this is same as the prior art).And the PDSCH that UE receives is from second network equipment, and the back 14-1-2 symbol (for example the 2nd symbol in the PDSCH territory receives CRS) of a corresponding TTI should receive according to the form of back 11 symbols.
