Description

Method and apparatus for transmitting downlink control information

The present invention relates to the field of LTE systems, and more particularly, to a method and apparatus for transmitting downlink control information.

"This study was conducted as a result of the next generation communication network source technology development project of the Korea Communications Commission" (KCA-2011-10913-04002)

Recently, communication standards for improving performance in terms of throughput, latency, and coverage in mobile communication systems have been developed. A widely used standard is the UMTS (Universal Mobile Telecommunications System) which was developed as part of the 3rd generation (3G) mobile communication system and is maintained by the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP). Among these, 3GPP Long Term Evolution (LTE) is a communication standard driven by 3GPP to achieve high data rate, low latency, packet optimized system performance and wide coverage in UMTS systems.

In the 3GPP LTE Release 8/9/10 system, as shown in FIG. 1, a control channel (PDCCH) and a data channel (PDSCH) are allocated in a frequency-time domain on the downlink. Allocate and use The PDCCH is used to transmit various types of downlink control information formats according to uplink scheduling assignment information and downlink control information (DCI) such as a power control command. Since a physical resource capable of transmitting a PDCCH is limited to a maximum of 4 symbols, the capacity of the PDCCH itself may also be limited according to the limitation of the physical resource. CoMP (coordinated multi-point operatoin), which will be introduced in the system after LTE 11, is expected to require more scheduling information. In addition, in carrier aggregation (CA) introduced in LTE release 10, PDCCH capacity that can be used by one carrier increases. In addition, multi-user access schemes are available for downlink antennas that have increased since release 10, which is also a factor of increasing PDCCH capacity.

As such, while physical resources for the PDCCH are limited, there is a need for additional physical resource allocation in consideration of the increase in information to be transmitted using the PDCCH.

The present invention provides a method and apparatus for transmitting downlink control information.

The apparatus for transmitting downlink control information according to the present invention allocates a portion of a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) resource region to an enhanced physical downlink control channel (E-PDCCH) region to control downlink information (DCI) for the mobile communication terminal. send information).

A method of transmitting downlink control information according to the present invention includes: a) allocating a portion of a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) resource region to an enhanced physical downlink control channel (E-PDCCH); And b) transmitting downlink cotnrol information (DCI) for the mobile communication terminal using PDCCH or E-PDCCH.

According to the present invention, efficient cooperative scheduling between PDCCH and E-PDCCH can be performed.

1 is an exemplary view showing a PDCCH and a PDSCH resource region in an LTE system.

2 is an exemplary view showing the configuration of an LTE-Advanced system according to an embodiment of the present invention.

3 is an exemplary view showing an E-PDCCH resource region according to an embodiment of the present invention.

4 is an exemplary view showing an E-PDCCH PRB structure according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Hereinafter, exemplary embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. However, in the following description, when there is a risk of unnecessarily obscuring the gist of the present invention, a detailed description of well-known functions and configurations will be omitted.

2 is an exemplary view showing the configuration of an LTE-Advanced system according to an embodiment of the present invention.

Referring to FIG. 2, the LTE-Advanced system includes a base station 10 and a terminal 20. The base station 10 may provide a communication service through a wireless link to the terminal 20 in a coverage region where the base station provides a network access service.

When Carrier Aggregation is applied to a plurality of carrier PCells (Primary Cells) and SCells (Secondary Cells), UE 1 (20a) can transmit downlink control information to the E-PDCCH. The S-CH may include a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) or a physical uplink shared channel (PUSCH) that carries user data.

When one UE 10a simultaneously serves different UEs using a MU-MIMO (Multi User MIMO) scheme, downlink control information may be transmitted through an E-PDCCH.

Downlink control when CoMP (Coordinated Multi-Point operation) is applied to one terminal 20d while sharing scheduling information or data between different sectors in one base station or between different nodes connected by X2 interface. The information may be transferred to the E-PDCCH.

In the 3GPP LTE Release 8/9/10 system, the control channel (PDCCH) and the data channel (PDSCH) for the terminals 30a to 30c are allocated and used in the frequency-time domain on the downlink. The PDCCH is used to transmit various types of downlink control information formats according to uplink scheduling assignment information and downlink control information (DCI) such as a power control command. The PDCCH includes common purpose such as transmission of system information, power control command, and response information for random access attempt, and uplink and downlink allocation information for scheduling user request data. On the other hand, since a physical resource capable of transmitting a PDCCH is limited to a maximum of 4 symbols, the capacity itself of the PDCCH may be limited accordingly. CoMP (coordinated multi-point operatoin), which will be introduced in the system after LTE 11, is a technology that improves system performance by utilizing cooperation between transmission points. Joint processing and coordinated scheduling Since such a technique is used, more scheduling information will be needed than in the present. In addition, carrier aggregation (CA) introduced in LTE release 10 supports cross carrier scheduling, which enables scheduling of all carriers in a component carrier having a good channel state. The capacity of the PDCCH that can be used in the carrier increases. In addition, since multi-user access schemes are available for downlink antennas increased after release 10, this also increases the PDCCH capacity.

3 is an exemplary view showing an Enhanced-Physical Downlink Control Channel (E-PDCCH) resource region according to an embodiment of the present invention.

The apparatus for transmitting downlink control information according to the present invention may transmit downlink control information for the mobile communication terminal by allocating a part of the PDSCH resource region to the E-PDCCH.

Due to the capacity problem of the downlink control information, an improved control channel (E-PDCCH) is being discussed in order to improve the capacity of the control channel by introducing the downlink control information into the data region as shown in FIG. 3. The capacity of the E-PDCCH is extended as much as the added physical resource region, and the transmission scheme of the PDSCH can be utilized. Referring to the physical resource block (PRB) region of FIG. 3, the PDCCH uses a Quadrature Phase Shift Keying (QPSK) modulation and demodulation technique based on a Cell Reference Signal (CRS). signal and / or link adaptive modulation and demodulation techniques may cause capacity and performance differences between PDCCH and E-PDCCH. In this case, PDCCH and E- for effective cooperative scheduling when applying a multi-user access method such as MU-MIMO (MU-MIMO) that can be supported in Release 9 or 10, or CoMP, which will be introduced in Release 11, etc. A method of allocating downlink control information between PDCCHs is required.

The present invention describes a method of allocating downlink control information to the E-PDCCH and the PDCCH.

There are a plurality of PRBs as radio resources for the PDSCH, and in the present invention, some of the PRB resources for the PDSCH are allocated for the E-PDCCH. Some or all of the resources of the PRB time domain allocated for the E-PDCCH may be used for the E-PDCCH.

The PDCCH is a physical channel using orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) symbols within first to fourth in a subframe for the entire PRB region. In the present embodiment, any one of the following methods or a combination of the following methods is used to transmit downlink control information for the E-PDCCH and the PDCCH.
