In some embodiments, UL and DL is redirected to selected second access point 300b together, even if in them Only one be blocked.Benefit with this method is that UL and DL is connected to the efficiency of identical first access point 300a more It is high.

As described above, in some embodiments, control equipment 100 can be based on from the received link of client device 500 Redirection request LRR, i.e., standard c) Lai Faqi link above redirect.Fig. 7 shows the signaling in this embodiment.Scheming In 7, client device 500 determines the link failure of the first beam forming link 602.In response to determining the first beam forming link Link redirection request LRR is transmitted to control equipment 100 by 602 link failure, client device 500.When control equipment 100 When receiving link redirection request LRR from client device 500, the control selection of equipment 100 is suitable for adapter tube and sets with client Standby 500 the second beam forming links 604 being wirelessly transferred.It controls equipment 100 and is based on selected second beam forming chain Road 604 determines link redirection information LRInfo, and link redirection information LRInfo is transmitted to client device 500.Visitor Family end equipment from control 100 receives link redirection information LRInfo of equipment.Therefore, in this embodiment, in response to link weight Orientation request LRR transmission, client device 500 from control 100 receives link redirection information LRInfo of equipment.

Link redirection information LRInfo includes the instruction that link redirects instruction LRI, and is used for the second beam forming chain The one or more transmission and reception beam forming parameter of wireless transmission in road 604.Client device 500 can be used one Or multiple transmission and reception beam forming parameter are to obtain the transmission of the second beam forming link 604 and receive beam forming system Number, and may include the transmission beam index of client device 500, and first access relevant to client device 500 The of the first sight direction (line-of-sight, LoS) of point and second access point 300b relevant to client device 500 At least one of deviation angle between two direction of visual lines.

If the transmission beam index of client device 500 is included in link redirection information LRInfo, client Equipment 500 uses the information to acquisition/generation transmission and receives beam forming coefficients.It can directly be obtained from transmission beam index Transmission beam.However, transmission and reception wave beam be not usually identical (it is usually wider receiving wave beam, therefore less).Therefore, client Transmission beam index translation must be immediate reception beam index by equipment 500, to obtain reception wave beam.

If deviation angle is included in link redirection information LRInfo, client device 500 is used the information to Acquisition/generation transmission and reception beam forming coefficients.Client device 500 it is generally known it use which transmission beam index It is transmitted to the first access point 300a, and it knows transmission beam width.Therefore, by by deviation angle divided by transmission wave beamwidth Degree, client device 500 can obtain offset transmission beam index.Offset transmission beam index is added to for connecing to first The transmission beam index of access point 300a transmission, to obtain the transmission beam that be used for transmitting to selected second access point 300b Index.

Figure 10 shows deviation angle according to an embodiment of the present invention and calculates.(- 180 °≤α of offset angle as can be drawn from Figure 10 ≤ 180 °) it can be calculated as

Wherein

Wherein, (x500, y500), (x300a, y300a) and (x300b, y300b) it is client device 500, the first access point respectively The geographical location of 300a and the second access point 300b.Based on selected second access point 300b whether from client device The left-hand side or right-hand side of the sight LoS of 500 to the first access point 300a calculates the symbol of α.

In an embodiment of the present invention, the reference signal RS transmitted by client device 500 may include in following extremely It is one few: omni-direction transmissions or orientation of the network identity and client device 500 of client device 500 to reference signal RS The instruction of transmission.When reference signal RS includes the information of the network identity of the client device 500 about transmission of reference signals RS When, the second access point 300b identifies the client device assigned by them using the network identity of client device 500 Reference signal RS received by 500.When first time establishing the first beam forming link 602 for arriving client device 500, control The network identity of client device 500 can be distributed to client device 500 by control equipment 100.When the second access point 300b quilt When selection, equipment 100 is controlled by the network identity of the client device 500 distributed and is supplied to the second access point 300b.Therefore, When reference signal RS includes the network identity of client device 500, the second access point 300b can be known based on reference signal RS Other client device 500.

As described above, reference signal RS can directionally or omni-directionally be transmitted by client device 500.It is referred in orientation In the case that signal RS is transmitted, reference signal RS transmission beam index is embedded in reference signal RS.In omnidirectional's reference signal In the case that RS is transmitted, the mark of instruction omnidirectional's reference signal RS transmission is embedded in reference signal RS.In order to make second to connect Access point 300b knows transmission beam index whether is explicitly or implicitly carried in reference signal RS, and the omnidirectional of reference signal RS passes Defeated and directional transmissions instructions are included in reference signal RS by client device 500.If the second access point 300b is from client End equipment 500 receives the instruction of the omni-direction transmissions of reference signal RS, then the second access point 300b knows that reference signal RS is complete To transmission.Therefore, transmission beam index information is not present in reference signal RSs.Then, the second access point 300b can should Instruction is forwarded to control equipment 100.On the other hand, if the second access point 300b is received from client device 500 with reference to letter The instruction of the directional transmissions of number RS, then the second access point 300b knows that reference signal RS is directed transmission, and also carries transmission Beam index information (explicitly or implicitly, but scheduled).Then, the second access point 300b is attempted from received with reference to letter Number RS exports transmission beam index information, and instruction and derived transmission beam index are all forwarded to control equipment 500.Cause This, the second access point 300b can be configured as, when reference signal RS includes the omni-direction transmissions or directional transmissions of reference signal RS Instruction when, by the instruction of the omni-direction transmissions of reference signal RS or directional transmissions be transmitted to control equipment 100.In addition, second connects Access point 300b can be configured as, when reference signal RS includes the transmission beam index of client device 500, if referring to The directional transmissions of reference signal RS are indicated in signal RS, then the transmission beam index of client device 500 are transmitted to control Device 100.

Therefore, control equipment 100 can receive client device 500 to the complete of reference signal RS from the second access point 300b To transmission or the instruction of directional transmissions.In addition, if indicating client device 500 to the directional transmissions of reference signal RS, The transmission beam index of client device 500 can be received from the second access point 300b by controlling equipment.

No matter reference signal RS is omnidirectional or directional transmissions, always assumes that control equipment 100 has client device 500, the geographical location of the first access point 300a and the second access point 300b, so that control equipment 100 always can be counted correspondingly Calculate deviation angle.Once link is needed to redirect, control equipment 100 can decide whether in link redirection information LRInfo In include deviation angle or transmission beam index (if available) or both.

In the case where the directional transmissions of reference signal RS, transmission beam index is embedded in reference signal RS and in quilt Control equipment 100 is forwarded to after corresponding second access point 300b detection.It controls equipment 100 and transmission beam is indexed into transmission To client device 500, the second access point 300b by being selected as new demand servicing access point is received.In client device 500 Without the position about the second access point, or should be transmitted using which beam forming coefficients to the second access point 300b In the case where any information, reference signal RS can be at least two between client device 100 and the first access point 300a LoS orthogonal direction on directionally transmitted.In this way, if client device 500 and the first access point 300a it Between LoS be blocked fully, then be likely to by the second access point 300b receive reference signal RS, wherein second access point 300b has the side of +/- 90 degree of azimuthal displacements relative to the LoS between client device 500 and the first access point 300a To.Alternatively, after the connection established between client device 500 and Service Access Point 300a, control equipment 100 can be via The beam forming coefficients for being used for transmission reference signal RS are sent client device 500 by first access point 300a.
