Fig. 4 A- Fig. 4 B shows the example of multiple multi-beam transmission scenes in accordance with some embodiments using eNB and UE.Although Discribed exemplary scene can show some aspects of techniques disclosed herein in Fig. 4 A- Fig. 4 B, it should be appreciated that embodiment It is not limited to these exemplary scenes.Embodiment is not limited to the quantity or type of component shown in Fig. 4 A- Fig. 4 B, and is also not necessarily limited to figure The quantity or arrangement of wave beam are sent shown in 4A- Fig. 4 B.

There are mutiple antennas (for example, two antennas 410), mode can make in various combinations referring to Fig. 4 A, eNB 104 There are various modification of signal with and for each combination, effectively to generate mutiple antennas port 405 (for example, P1-P4).Institute Show in each embodiment in exemplary frame, each antenna port P1-P4 can be defined for one or more antennas 410.Often A antenna port P1-P4 can correspond to different transmission senses.Using different antennae port, eNB 104 can pass through base Multiple layers are sent in code book or precoding technique based on non-code book.According to some embodiments, each antenna port corresponds to warp The specific CSI-RS signal in beam antenna port sent by respective antenna port.In other embodiments, there may be than Fig. 4 A Shown in the more or fewer antenna ports available at eNB of four antenna ports.

On the side UE, there are multiple receiving antennas 415.As shown in the example of Fig. 4 A, there are two receiving antennas for UE tool.It is multiple The receiving antenna property of can choose wave beam forming is received for generating.It receives wave beam forming and may be advantageously used with and increase the reception phase Hope signal direction receiving antenna gain, and inhibit from neighboring community interference (if certainly along with desired signal Different directions receives interference).

The some aspects of embodiment are related to realizing flexible transmission pattern switching.Each antenna 410 (or 415) can have with One or two associated antenna port 405, to allow up to two layers of the transmission of every antenna.Therefore individual antenna can mention For order be 1 (that is, every antenna use individual antenna port) or order be 2 (every antenna uses two antenna ports) simple beam Transmission.Two antennas can provide transmission rank be 2 (for each of two antennas using a port), 3 or 4 (for Each of two antennas use two ports) dualbeam transmit.As shown in Figure 4 A, two antennas of eNB 104 are utilized With transmission rank 4 (that is, just using all four ports 405), two transmission (Tx) wave beams are used.In one embodiment, eNB 104 can indicate the preference (for example, as referring to as being explained Fig. 5 B) for single or double multi-beam transmission to UE.In the scene In, UE can report back to the CSI (for example, CQI) of multiple Tx wave beams (for example, visible two Tx wave beams in Fig. 4 A).Another In embodiment, UE can indicate the preference for single or double multi-beam transmission (for example, that as explained referring to Fig. 5 A to eNB Sample).

Additionally and in example when (by eNB or UE) selection dualbeam transmission, when determining CQI, UE can be with Using different derivation methods (this interfere with each other is interfered with each other or not considered it is, for example, possible to use the wave beam received Derive CQI).ENB can also indicate that the preference of desired CQI derivation method (for example, such as that following explained herein Sample).

In exemplary scene in figure 4b, eNB 104 can send signal, any or institute on multiple wave beam 420-440 There is wave beam that can be received at UE 102.The quantity of wave beam shown in it should be noted that or transmission angle not limit.Due to wave beam 420-440 can be orientation, therefore the transmission energy from wave beam 420-440 can converge in the direction shown.Therefore, return Because in the relative position of UE 102, UE 102 may not necessarily receive the energy of significant quantity from wave beam 440 in some cases.

UE 102 can receive the energy of significant quantity from wave beam 420 and 430, as shown.As an example, difference can be used Reference signal sends wave beam 405-420, and UE 102 can determine channel state information (CSI) feedback of wave beam 420 and 430 Or other information.In some embodiments, each of wave beam 420-430 is configured as CSI reference signal (CSI-RS). In related embodiment, CSI-RS signal is to find a part of reference signaling (DRS) configuration.DRS configuration can be used for UE 102 notify CSI-RS signal by the physical resource being found (for example, subframe, subcarrier).In related embodiment, also to UE 102 notices will be applied to any scramble sequence of CSI-RS.

In some embodiments, up to 2 MIMO layers can be sent in each wave beam by using different polarization.It can be with The MIMO layer of more than two is sent by using multiple wave beams.In related embodiment, UE is configured as finding available wave beam simultaneously And those wave beams found are reported in the forward direction eNB of MIMO data transmission using suitable reporting message.Based on reporting message, ENB 104 can determination will be used for the suitable beam direction with the MIMO layer of the data communication of UE 102.In each implementation In example, depending on the quantity of eNB 104 and UE 102 MIMO layer supported, may exist up to 2,4,8,16,32 or more A MIMO layer.In given scenario, the quantity for the MIMO layer that can actually be used will depend on the letter received at UE 102 The quality of order and with dispersion angle reach UE 102 reflected beam availability, allow UE 102 to distinguish the wave of separation Entrained data on beam.

In exemplary scene in figure 4b, UE 102 can determine wave beam 420 and 430 angle or other information (for example, CSI feedback, including channel quality indicator (CQI) or other).UE 102 can also be at other angles (for example, shown wave beam 440) information is determined when receiving.Wave beam 440 is defined using dotted line configuration, to indicate that it may be not necessarily by indicated angle Degree is sent, but UE 102 can be used and for example receive the technology of wave beam forming and determine the beam direction of wave beam 440.The situation can Can occur in for example transmitted wave beam from the object reflection near UE 102 and according to its reflection rather than incident angle reaches When UE 102.

In some embodiments, UE 102 can send eNB for one or more channel state informations (CSI) message 104 are used as reporting message.However, embodiment is not limited to dedicated CSI message, because UE 102 can be in control message or can be with Or it can be not exclusively suitable in the other kinds of message of transmitting CSI type information including to shut breath of notifying.

As an example, from the first signal that the first eNB 104 is received may include being based at least partially on the first CSI- First directional beam 420 of RS signal and the second directional beam 430 for being based at least partially on the second CSI-RS signal.UE 102 can determine the order designator (RI) of the first CSI-RS and the RI of the 2nd CSI-RS, and can send in CSI message The two RI.In some embodiments, UE 102 can also determine CQI, precoding matrix indicators (PMI), receiving angle or Other information about one or both of the first signal and the second signal.This information can be together with one or more RI packets It includes in one or more CSI message.In some embodiments, UE 102 executes reference signal using CSI-RS signal and receives function Rate (RSRP) measurement, received signal strength indicator (RSSI) measurement, Reference Signal Received Quality (RSRQ) measurement or they certain Kind combination.

As an example, the first signal received from eNB 104 may include being based at least partially on the first CSI-RS letter Number the first directional beam and be based at least partially on the second directional beam of the second CSI-RS signal.UE 102 can be based on The CSI-RS received determines the first CSI measurement of the first directional beam and the 2nd CSI measurement of the second directional beam.CSI Measurement may include channel quality indicator (CQI), order designator (RI) and precoding matrix indicators (PMI).CQI can be by ENB transmitter is for selecting one of several modulation alphabets and code rate combination.RI can be used for notifying to transmitter for current The quantity of the useful transport layer of mimo channel, and PMI can serve to indicate that at transmitter applied by pre-coding matrix Code book index (quantity depending on transmission antenna).Bit rate used in eNB can be based on CQI.PMI can be cell site meter Vector of the calculate and report to eNB.

In this regard, CQI can be the instruction of UE downlink mobile radio channel quality experienced.CQI allows UE proposes optimized modulated met and code rate to eNB about given radio link quality, so that generated transmission Block Error Rate will be no more than particular value (for example, 10%).In some embodiments, UE can report the channel matter for referring to system bandwidth The broadband CQI value of amount.UE can also report the subband CQI of the every subband for the certain amount of resource block that higher can configure Value.

PMI in CSI can indicate the optimal pre-coding matrix that will be used by eNB for given radio condition. PMI value may refer to code book table.The quantity of resource block represented by network configuration PMI report.In some embodiments, in order to cover Convering system bandwidth can provide multiple PMI reports.It may be closed loop spatial reuse, multiuser MIMO and closed loop 1 precoding MIMO mode of order provides PMI report.

According to example embodiment, UE can by provided in reporting CSI to eNB the mode that is used for transmission instruction (or Preference) come control transmission mode (for example, single or double multi-beam transmission) (as it is following it is herein explain as).Show another In example, transmission mode selection can be controlled by eNB, and eNB can indicate to send wave beam needs for multiple (for example, 2) The preference of CSI information.

Fig. 5 A is to show the channel state information (CSI) in accordance with some embodiments for flexible transmission pattern switching to derive With the diagram reported.Referring to Fig. 5 A, be formed by high band system and exist in eNB and UE shown in CSI derive.In the system In can be used transmission (Tx) and receive (Rx) wave beam forming, to expand MPS process and/or promotion signal quality.Initially Ground periodically sends reference signal (RS) 510a after wave beam forming, so that UE can be obtained and be kept preferably (most It is excellent) Tx wave beam 515a and candidate's Tx wave beam 520a.Acquired optimal T X wave beam 515a and candidate Tx wave beam 520a is sent To eNB.It, can be based on the optimal T x wave beam 515a reported and/or candidate beam when eNB intention transmits data to UE Channel state information reference signals (CSI-RS) 525a of 520a and wave beam forming is sent to UE, to survey for channel quality Amount, allows eNB to determine actual modulated encoding scheme, the quantity of stream and the best Tx wave beam in the current generation.

(for example, due to movement of UE) in some instances, the Radio Link between eNB and UE can change, and Transmission mode can be changed based on such as these conditions and be switched over.For example, when there are multiple strong cluster of channels (for example, at least Two cluster of channels) when, it can support high order transmission (for example, dualbeam transmission mode), and when spatial degrees of freedom deficiency, it enables Low-rank transmission.In order not to the flexible switching between same order (for example, between single mode transmission and dual mode transmission), can be used Following CQI reports technology:

The CSI report for being sent to eNB from UE may include the specific CSI information of Tx wave beam.More specifically, and for two A example Tx wave beam (for example, a preferably/optimal T x wave beam and a candidate Tx wave beam), CSI information may include one The implicitly or explicitly index Tx1 of candidate Tx wave beam;RI1, PMI1 and CQI1 of candidate beam Tx1;Another candidate's Tx wave beam it is hidden Formula explicitly indexes Tx2;And RI2, PMI2, CQI2 of candidate beam Tx2.Beam index can be explicit or implicit wave beam rope Draw.Explicit beam index can be the wave beam number sent from eNB (for example, first in wave beam possible for 48, explicitly 1) beam index will be.Implicit beam index can be numbered with the antenna port for sending wave beam and is associated with.

CSI is reported

According to example embodiment, can report differentiation via flexible CSI/CQI as follows includes dualbeam transmission and simple beam The different transmission mode of transmission:

(1) when beam index Tx2 is different from beam index Tx1, (and/or any of RI, PMI and CQI are in wave beam Between be different) when example in, indicate the preference transmitted for dualbeam from UE to eNB.

(2) in the example when Tx1, RI1, PMI1 and CQI1 are respectively equal to Tx2, RI2, PMI2, CQI2, UE can be to ENB indicates the preference transmitted for simple beam;And

(3) as the alternative to (2), if beam index Tx2 is identical as beam index Tx1, while RI2, PMI2 and CQI2 is set to zero, then UE indicates the preference transmitted for simple beam to eNB.

Any of the above example (1)-(3) can be used to report beam index and CSI information in UE, so that instruction is for unicast The preference of beam transmission or dualbeam transmission, and trigger flexible transmission pattern switching.

Referring again to Fig. 5 A, for example optimal and candidate beam CSI information 530a, 535a can be reported to eNB.Wave beam rope Drawing (and/or CSI of each wave beam) can be different.Based on different values, UE can indicate to transmit dualbeam to eNB Preference.Then two Tx wave beam 550a and 560a can be used and send down link data 540a.

In another example, index Tx2, RI2, PMI2 and CQI2 can be set equal to (even if they can not by UE It is same as) Tx1, RI1, PMI1 and CQI1, thus the preference transmitted for simple beam is indicated to eNB.

In a further example, RI2, PMI2 and CQI2 can be set equal to zero by UE, thus be indicated to eNB for unicast The preference of beam transmission.

Fig. 5 B shows the CSI in accordance with some embodiments based on down link control information (DCI) and derives and report.Another In one embodiment, the selection of transmission mode can be controlled by eNB.For example, can believe in the downlink control that eNB is sent to UE New beam search algorithm (BSA) value 520b is added in breath (DCI) 510b.For example, make a reservation for when BSA value 520b is equal to (and it is right Known to UE) value x when, eNB needs dualbeam channel state information (CSI) report, with the purpose transmitted for dualbeam.Class As, when BSA value 520b is equal to another predetermined (and for known to UE) value y, eNB needs single CSI report, for single The purpose of multi-beam transmission.In particular example in figure 5B, BSA value 520b indicates the preference transmitted for dualbeam, and (divides Not about Tx wave beam 1 and 2) CSI information 530b and 540b be passed back to eNB.

CQI is derived

In the example when being transmitted using dualbeam, the transmission signals of two different beams will be at UE to generating each other Interference.In this regard, whether CQI derivation considers to interfere with each other should be consistent between eNB and UE (and obtained by the two Know).

According to example embodiment, the CQI derivation in the case where not considering to interfere with each other can be set to default configuration (and can be used as default configuration is known for both eNB and UE).

In the case where not interfering with each other, CQI can be derived based on following formula:

Psig/(Pintf+Pnoise),

Wherein, PsigIt is signal power, PintfIt is jamming power, PnoiseIt is noise power.Technology is derived using this CQI, ENB can execute flexible central schedule, and the computation complexity of the UE during CQI is derived is simplified.For example, if Whether eNB is equipped with there are two individual RF chain, then can be by deciding whether to send single wave beam to two users or will be double Wave beam is sent to a user to optimize cell capacity.

According to another example embodiment, default configuration can be set to based on considering that the CQI interfered with each other is derived.

If it is considered that interfering with each other, then addition interference will be added, obtain following formula:

Psig/(Pintf+PMutual, intf+Pnoise), wherein Pmutual,intfIt is that additivity interferes with each other power.By considering phase Mutually interference, eNB and UE can optimize the Tx beam selection between dualbeam.For example, when two non-ideal passback eNB are by groups To realize in example when wave beam polymerization, this mechanism can reduce the expense for information exchange.

In another example, eNB can be by high-level signaling via such as Master Information Block (MIB), system information block (SIB), radio-resource-configuration (RRC) signaling and/or down link control information (DCI) configure 1 bit indicator.The instruction Symbol can be used to consider to interfere with each other or not consider to interfere with each other (for example, based on indicator bit value) to UE notice from eNB In the case where derive CQI.

In another embodiment, eNB can be based on wave beam indicated by the BSA value (for example, 520b in Fig. 5 B) in DCI Searching algorithm come indicate for CQI derivation method preference (such as, if consideration interfere with each other).For example, if BSA requirement is double Wave beam CSI, then UE can calculate CQI based on interfering with each other from dualbeam.

(1) when beam index Tx2 is different from beam index Tx1, (and/or any of RI, PMI and CQI are in wave beam Between be different) when example in, from UE to eNB instruction the preference that dualbeam transmits (in this regard, can be based only upon The difference of transmission beam index determines dualbeam transmission mode);

(2) in the example when Tx1, RI1, PMI1 and CQI1 are respectively equal to Tx2, RI2, PMI2, CQI2, UE can be to ENB indicates the preference transmitted for simple beam;And (3) as the alternative to (2), if beam index Tx2 and beam index Tx1 is identical, while RI2, PMI2 and CQI2 are set to zero, then UE indicates the preference transmitted for simple beam to eNB.
