Description

Communication method and device of device through system, communication system Technical field

The present invention relates to the field of communications, and in particular to a communication method and apparatus, and a communication system for a device through system.

Background technique

With the development of wireless multimedia services, people's demand for high data rates and user experience is increasing, which puts high demands on the system capacity and coverage of traditional cellular networks. On the other hand, application scenarios such as public safety, social networking, close-range data sharing, and local advertising have led to an increasing demand for understanding and communicating with nearby people or things (Proximity Services). The traditional base station-centric cellular network has obvious limitations in terms of high data rate and proximity service support. In the context of this demand, D2D (Device-to-Device, device to the new direction of future communication technology development) Equipment) technology came into being. The application of D2D technology can reduce the burden of cellular networks, reduce the battery power consumption of user equipment, increase the data rate, and improve the robustness of the network infrastructure, which satisfies the requirements of the above high data rate services and proximity services. At present, D2D technology is also called Proximity Services (ProSe), and one-side link (Sidelink, SL).

D2D technology can work in licensed or unlicensed bands, allowing multiple D2D-enabled user equipment (D2D User Equipment, D2D UE) to directly discover without network infrastructure or network infrastructure. / Direct communication. The interface between D2D UEs is called a PC5 interface. The D2D technology generally includes a D2D discovery technology and a D2D communication technology, wherein the D2D discovery technology is used to determine/determine the proximity between two or more D2D user devices (for example, within a range in which D2D direct communication is possible) . Generally, D2D user equipment can discover each other by sending or receiving discovery signals/information. D2D communication technology refers to a technology in which some or all of the communication data between D2D user equipments can communicate directly without going through the network infrastructure.

On the other hand, with the development of the Internet of Everything, 3GPP for machine type communication (MTC, Machine Type communication has been standardized, and the eMTC work of R12 and R13 has been basically completed. The standardization work of NB-IoT (Narrow Band-Internet of Things) is still in progress. Among them, R13eMTC adds coverage enhancement support and bandwidth limited support on the basis of low cost. In general, the radio frequency capability of the eMTC user equipment (UE) is limited to 1.4 MHz, while the radio frequency transceiver bandwidth of the NB-IoT device is limited to 180 kHz. The coverage enhancement is usually achieved between the eNB and the eMTC/NB-IoT UE by multiple repetitions of data transmission. Considering the low-cost nature of eMTC/NB-IoT devices, it is often desirable to extend the lifetime of eMTC/NB-IoT devices as much as possible, while coverage enhancements can result in multiple retransmissions of data packets, thereby quickly consuming the UE's power. In addition to eMTC devices and NB-IoT devices, Wearables devices have similar application requirements such as low cost, low power consumption/saving, and high data rates.

A possible solution is to support the wearable/eMTC/NB-IoT device (referred to as remote UE or remote UE) to access the network through D2D communication, that is, the remote UE can connect to the relay node served by the UE ( Referring to the relay UE or the relay UE, the D2D communication is performed with the relay UE, and the UE is communicated with the network through the relay UE.

In order to better understand the above embodiments, the following detailed description will be given in conjunction with the embodiments.

The technical problem to be solved in the following embodiments is how to support the relay UE to forward bearer configuration and management problems of the remote UE (including but not limited to wearable/eMTC/NB-IoT device (w-UE)) data. The method is as follows. The remote UE establishes a communication connection with the relay UE, and performs a negotiation configuration and a Uu bearer configuration of the PC5 bearer that relays the UE data of the remote UE, thereby ensuring that the remote UE passes the relay UE and The network communicates smoothly. It should be noted that, in the following examples, the wearable UE (w-UE) is taken as an example, and in the following examples, the r-UE or the relay UE is used to indicate the relay UE.

Example 1

This example provides a method for forwarding a bearer configuration and establishing a related process in a scenario in which the data of the wearable/eMTC/NB-IoT UE is forwarded by the relay UE, as shown in FIG. 8. In this example, the w-UE is under normal coverage or extended coverage, and the eNB can directly perform signaling interaction, and considers cost and power saving issues, finds a relay r-UE, and forwards data through the r-UE to reduce power. For the purpose of consumption, the relay r-UE is in the connected state, and the w-UE and the r-UE are in the same base station coverage.

Step 0: Relay discovery and selection. R13ProSe UE-to-network relay discovery process, supports two relay discovery modes, relay broadcast discovery message, w-UE listening, or w-UE sending discovery solicitation message, relay response. The w-UE autonomously selects a relay according to the link quality and signal strength between the r-UE, and reports the selected relay to the eNB.

Step 1: When the w-UE has data transmission or the network has data to the w-UE, the w-UE or the PGW initiates the establishment of the EPS bearer of the w-UE. The EPS bearer establishment process of the w-UE is a conventional LTE process, which is well-known in the industry and will not be described here.

Step 2: When the w-UE or the PGW initiates the establishment of the EPS bearer of the w-UE, and the eNB configures the corresponding Uu interface DRB for the w-UE, the eNB can simultaneously configure the corresponding PC5 bearer for the EPS bearer. The PC5 bearer setup configuration information includes any combination of the following: PC5 bearer identifier, pdcp configuration, rlc configuration, logical channel identifier, logical channel configuration, and PC5 bearer QoS information; wherein, the rlc configuration includes any combination of the following: polling retransmission timer (t -PollRetransmit), polling protocol data unit (pollPDU), polling byte count (pollByte), maximum retransmission threshold (maxRetxThreshold), re-sequence timer (t-Reordering), state-disabled timer (t-StatusProhibit), unacknowledged mode serial number field length (sn-FieldLength); logical channel configuration includes: logical channel group LCG, priority guarantee bit Rate PBR, bucket size duration BSD; PC5 bearer QoS information includes any combination of the following: quality of service level QCI, guaranteed bit rate GBR, maximum bit rate MBR, UE aggregated maximum bit rate (UE-AMBR). The PC5 carries the PC5 bearer identifier, the logical channel identifier, and the logical channel group in the configuration information, and can multiplex the Uu DRB identifier, the logical channel identifier, and the logical channel group of the corresponding EPS bearer. If not, the PC5 bearer establishes the configuration information. The EPS bearer identifier and the Uu DRB identifier corresponding to the EPS bearer are included. The PC5 bearer configuration information is sent to the w-UE through an RRC reconfiguration message. Optionally, the PC5 bearer configuration information includes indication information that initiates PC5 bearer establishment to the relay UE. After the PC5 bearer setup is complete (ie, after step 4 is completed), the w-UE sends an RRC reconfiguration complete message to the eNB to indicate that the PC5 bearer setup is complete.

Step 3: The w-UE performs a security layer 2 connection with the selected r-UE, and the w-UE sends a direct communication request to the r-UE to carry the ProSe UE ID, and the r-UE responds. The direct communication request and response message can be multiplexed with the PC5Signalling Protocol message (NAS message) of R13, or by the PC5 AS signaling message, meaning that the protocol layer of the PC5 control plane protocol will add a protocol layer similar to RRC.

Step 4: PC5 bears configuration interaction and bearer establishment. The w-UE sends a PC5 bearer setup message to the r-UE, carries the PC5 bearer setup configuration information received from the eNB, and the corresponding PC5 bearer QoS information, and the r-UE sends a response message, and completes the PC5 bearer configuration. Similar to the connection establishment related message in step 3, the PC5 bearer setup and response message may also be a PC5NAS signaling message or a PC5AS signaling message.

Step 5: After receiving the PC5 bearer setup message of the w-UE, the r-UE may perform admission control on the w-UE. The r-UE determines whether to accept the establishment of a new PC5 bearer according to the PC5 bearer QoS information in the PC5 bearer setup configuration information sent by the received w-UE, and the number of PC5 bearers and resource load conditions established by the r-UE; or r- The UE sends the PC5 bearer QoS information to the base station, and the base station determines whether to allow the r-UE to accept the establishment of the PC5 bearer according to the resource scheduling/allocation situation. The r-UE sends a PC5 bearer setup response message to the w-UE after allowing admission to establish a PC5 bearer.

Step 6: After receiving the PC5 bearer setup message of the w-UE and accepting the establishment of the PC5 bearer, the r-UE determines whether it is necessary to establish an EPS bearer dedicated to forwarding w-UE data, and the r-UE according to the received w - the PC5 bearer QoS information and the EPS bearer list information maintained by the r-UE in the PC5 bearer setup configuration information, and determine whether there is an EPS bearer dedicated to forwarding w-UE data that satisfies the requirements, if not, r- The UE initiates a service request, a bearer resource allocation request, or a bearer resource modification request to the network, and establishes or modifies an EPS bearer that is dedicated to forwarding the w-UE data. The EPS bearer establishment process is a traditional LTE process, and details are not described herein again.

Step 7: After the EPS bearer dedicated to forwarding the w-UE data is established, the r-UE indicates to the eNB that the EPS bearer is dedicated to forwarding w- through an RRC message (RRC dedicated signaling or RRC reconfiguration complete message or sidelink UEInformation). UE data (with EPS bearer identifier/DRB identifier/logical channel identifier), the purpose is to have two EPS bearers with the same QCI value when the r-UE is used (one for transmitting r-UE own data and one for forwarding w- When the UE data), the eNB can distinguish which EPS bearer/DRB is used to forward the w-UE data, thereby correctly mapping the data to the corresponding bearer transmission.

Step 8: The w-UE and the eNB negotiate the EPS bearer that is forwarded by the relay. For the specific method, the PC5 bearer corresponding to the EPS bearer of the w-UE is established in the example 5, and the Uu bearer dedicated to the w-UE data is forwarded by the r-UE. After that, the w-UE can negotiate with the eNB which EPS bearer data is forwarded by the r-UE, and then the data of the EPS of the agreed w-UE is forwarded by the r-UE.

Example 2

This example provides another specific example of the process of forwarding the bearer configuration and establishing related processes in the scenario where the data of the wearable/eMTC/NB-IoT device (w-UE) is forwarded through the relay r-UE, as shown in FIG. 9. This example is basically similar to Example 1, except that the order of the individual steps is adjusted.

Step 0: The w-UE has data transmission or initiates an EPS bearer setup according to service requirements. For the traditional LTE process, it will not be described here.

Step 1: The w-UE performs relay discovery and selection, and the R13ProSe UE-to-Network relay discovery process. And after selecting the relay UE, performing a security layer 2 connection with the selected relay UE, Specifically, it is the same as step 3 in Example 1.

Step 2: The w-UE and the eNB negotiate the EPS bearer that is forwarded by the eNB. The specific method is different from the eNB. After the PC5 bearer corresponding to the EPS bearer of the w-UE is established, the w-UE negotiates with the eNB. The data carried by the EPS is forwarded by the relay. In this example, after the w-UE and the eNB negotiate the EPS bearer forwarded by the relay, the corresponding PC5 bearer setup and the U-bearer dedicated to the w-UE data are forwarded by the r-UE. set up.

Step 3: After the w-UE and the eNB negotiate the data of the EPS bearers, the eNB configures the PC5 bearer corresponding to the EPS bearers for the w-UE, and the eNB sends the PC5 bearer configuration information to the w-UE through the RRC reconfiguration message. . Specifically, the PC5 bearer configuration information is the same as that described in step 2 of Example 1. After the PC5 bearer setup is complete (ie, after step 4 is completed), the w-UE sends an RRC reconfiguration complete message to the eNB to indicate that the PC5 bearer setup is complete.

Step 4-5: The PC5 bearer configuration interaction and bearer establishment between the w-UE and the r-UE, and the r-UE performs admission control on the w-UE. Specifically, it is the same as step 4-5 in Example 1.

Step 6: After receiving the PC5 bearer setup message of the w-UE and accepting the establishment of the PC5 bearer, the r-UE determines whether it is necessary to establish an EPS bearer dedicated to forwarding w-UE data, and the r-UE according to the received w - the PC5 bearer QoS information and the EPS bearer list information maintained by the r-UE in the PC5 bearer setup configuration information, and determine whether there is an EPS bearer dedicated to forwarding w-UE data that satisfies the requirements, if not, r- The UE initiates a service request, a bearer resource allocation request, or a bearer resource modification request to the network, and establishes or modifies an EPS bearer dedicated to forwarding the w-UE data, and the request message of the w-UE to the MME may carry the forwarding bearer indication, and then The forwarding bearer indication is also carried in the Bearer setup request/Session management request/Bearer modify request. The other steps in the EPS bearer setup process are the traditional LTE processes, and are not described here.

After agreeing which of the EPS bearer data of the w-UE is forwarded by the relay and establishing the corresponding PC5 bearer and forwarding Uu bearer, the data of the agreed EPS bearers of the w-UE is forwarded by the relay r-UE.

Example 3

This example provides another wearable/eMTC/NB-IoT device (w-UE) data forwarding scenario through the relay r-UE. When the downlink w-UE data reaches the eNB, the PC5 bearer setup configuration and the Uu forwarding bearer Establish a specific example of the relevant process, as shown in Figure 10.

Step 1: The W-UE determines the communication mode that is forwarded by the relay according to the requirements of QoS, power saving, etc., and the w-UE carries the PC5 transmission interest indication in the RRC connection setup request message to the eNB when the RRC connection is established. Indicates PC5 communication interest.

Step 2: The w-UE performs relay discovery and selection, and the R13ProSe UE-to-network relay discovery process. After selecting the relay, the W-UE informs the eNB of the selected relay information, that is, the ProSe UE ID carrying the relay through the sidelink UEInformation message. The w-UE establishes a security layer 2 connection with the relay UE, specifically, the same as step 3 in the example 1.

Step 3-4: When the network has data for the w-UE, the PGW initiates the establishment of the EPS bearer of the w-UE. After the bearer is established, the w-UE data is transmitted to the eNB through the bearer, and the traditional LTE process.

Step 5: The w-UE has informed the eNB that its PC5 transmits the interest indication, and the eNB holds the relay UE information selected by the w-UE, and the eNB needs to forward the w-UE data to the w-UE through the relay. If the eNB finds that the relay UE does not meet the QoS requirements for the Uu DRB dedicated to forwarding the w-UE data, the w-UE and the r-UE have not established the corresponding PC5 bearer, and the eNB performs the PC5 bearer configuration and forwarding for the w-UE and the r-UE. Uu bearer configuration of w-UE data.

Step 6: Establishment of the w-UE PC5 bearer. The eNB sends the PC5 bearer setup configuration to the w-UE. Optionally, the PC5 bearer setup configuration information includes a configuration indication that informs the w-UE/r-UE that the eNB has configured the PC5 bearer for the peer, and does not need to initiate the PC5 bearer interaction. After the PC5 bearer setup is completed, the w-UE sends an RRC reconfiguration message to the eNB to indicate that the PC5 bearer setup is complete.

Step 7: The r-UE PC5 bears the establishment of the Uu DRB that establishes and forwards the w-UE data. The eNB sends the Uu DRB configuration of the PC5 bearer setup configuration and the forwarding of the w-UE data to the w-UE. The Uu DRB configuration includes: Uu DRB identifier, pdcp configuration, rlc configuration, logical channel identifier, and logical channel configuration. Initiating the establishment of an EPS bearer for forwarding w-UE data with the r-UE in the above example. The difference is that in the above example, the Uu DRB is obtained by establishing an EPS bearer that forwards the w-UE data, and in the present example, the Uu DRB that forwards the w-UE data has only one DRB of the air interface, and there is no corresponding EPS bearer. After the PC5 bearer setup completes and the forwarding Uu DRB is established, the r-UE sends an RRC reconfiguration message to the eNB to indicate that the PC5 bearer setup is complete and the Uu DRB setup is complete.

The eNB sends the data of the w-UE to the relay UE, which is newly created by the relay UE and is dedicated to forwarding the w-UE data. After receiving the data of the w-UE, the relay UE sends the data to the w-UE through the PC5 bearer. The PC5 bearer and the Uu bearer of the w-UE data that the relay UE forwards are established, and the uplink/downlink data of the w-UE with the same QoS requirement can be forwarded by the relay UE.

11 is similar to FIG. 10, except that the relay UE initiates PC5 bearer setup to the w-UE, and the relay UE establishes a Uu bearer dedicated to forwarding w-UE data (same as in the example 1) by initiating a conventional EPS bearer setup procedure. When the w-UE downlink data arrives at the eNB, the eNB sends the PC5 bearer setup configuration information to the relay UE, and the relay UE initiates the PC5 bearer setup to the w-UE, and carries the PC5 bearer setup configuration information, and the w-UE receives the PC5 bearer setup configuration information. The PC5 bearer is set up according to the configuration, and the PC5 bearer setup response message is sent to the relay UE. After completing the PC5 bearer setup, the relay UE sends a message to the eNB to notify the PC5 that the bearer setup is completed. While the w-UE downlink data arrives at the eNB, the eNB checks whether the relay UE has an EPS bearer that forwards the w-UE data that meets the QoS requirement, and if not, the eNB instructs the relay UE to initiate an EPS bearer that establishes the forwarding w-UE data, and After the establishment of the EPS bearer is completed, the relay UE indicates to the eNB that the EPS bearer is used to forward w-UE data.

Example 4

This example provides another wearable/eMTC/NB-IoT device (w-UE) data forwarding scenario through the relay r-UE, the w-UE has no direct signaling interaction with the eNB, and the w-UE control plane signaling The user plane data is forwarded by the relay UE. The specific example is shown in Figure 12. The Relay UE is in the connected state and the relay related configuration is activated.

Step 0: Relay discovery and selection. Same as the above example.

Step 1: After completing the discovery and selection of the relay, the w-UE establishes a security layer 2 connection/communication connection with the selected relay UE. In this example, the relay connection establishment related message is performed through PC5AS signaling. After receiving the direct communication request of the w-UE, the relay UE sends the sidelink UEInformation to the eNB, and informs the eNB that the w-UE is connected to it, and the relay communication is to be performed. The eNB saves w-UE information. Optionally, the relay UE obtains subscription information and authorization information of the remote UE from the ProSe function, and carries the information in the sidelink UEInformation and sends the information to the eNB.

Step 2-5: The w-UE itself generates an RRC connection setup request message. The RRC connection establishment process is completed by relaying control plane signaling. The w-UE sends the generated RRC connection request message to the relay UE through the control plane message, and after receiving the relay UE, the RRC connection request information of the w-UE is forwarded to the eNB; the eNB performs access control on the w-UE, and allows After the w-UE is accessed, the RRC connection setup information of the w-UE is sent to the relay UE, and the relay UE forwards the information to the w-UE. After completing the RRC connection establishment, the w-UE sends the RRC connection complete information to carry the Attach message to the UE. The relay UE forwards the message to the eNB, and the eNB forwards the Attach message to the core network, and completes the attach process of the w-UE by relay forwarding.

Step 6: The EPS bearer of the w-UE is established. The eNB sends the EPS bearer configuration information of the w-UE to the relay UE, and the relay UE forwards the information to the w-UE. After completing the EPS bearer/Uu DRB configuration, the w-UE sends an RRC reconfiguration complete message to the eNB, and is forwarded by the relay UE.

Step 7-8: The eNB sends the configuration information of the PC5 bearer setup corresponding to the EPS bearer of the w-UE to the relay UE, and the relay UE initiates the PC5 bearer setup to the w-UE. And inform the eNB after the PC5 bearer setup is completed.

As in the above example, the relay UE detects whether there is a Uu bearer that forwards the w-UE data that satisfies the QoS requirement. If not, it initiates the establishment of an EPS bearer dedicated to forwarding the w-UE data and indicates to the eNB. After that, the uplink and downlink data of the w-UE with the same QoS requirement are forwarded through the relay.

Example 5

This example provides a method for the w-UE mentioned in the above example to negotiate an EPS bearer forwarded by the eNB.

Method 1: The w-UE selects whether the communication mode is forwarded by the relay according to the QoS, the power saving requirement, etc. After the selection, the eNB can inform the eNB of the tendency of data communication when the connection is established, the service request, and the RRC connection. This method is embodied in Example 3.

Method 2: The w-UE sends a relay forwarding indication to the eNB, and specifically, may include a relay forwarding interest indication or a relay UE ID, and then all the EPS bearer data of the w-UE is forwarded through the relay; or, the relay needs to be forwarded through the relay. The EPS bearer identifier/logical channel identifier/Uu DRB identifier may further include an uplink forwarding indication, a downlink forwarding indication, and an uplink and downlink forwarding indication corresponding to the bearer. The w-UE may send the relay forwarding indication information to the eNB through an RRC dedicated signaling or an RRC reconfiguration complete message or a sidelink UEInformation message.

Method 3: The eNB sends a relay forwarding indication to the w-UE by using RRC dedicated signaling, such as an RRC reconfiguration message.
