FIG. 1 is a schematic diagram of a system 100 that can apply the method for cell selection according to an embodiment of the present application.

As shown in FIG. 1, the system 100 includes a network device 102, and the network device 102 may include one antenna or multiple antennas. For example, antennas 104, 106, 108, 110, 112, and 114. In addition, the network device 102 may additionally include a transmitter chain and a receiver chain.

Those of ordinary skill in the art can understand that both the transmitter chain and the receiver chain can include multiple components related to signal transmission and reception (for example, a processor, modulator, multiplexer, demodulator, demultiplexer, or Antenna, etc.).

The network device 102 can communicate with multiple terminal devices (eg, the terminal device 116 and the terminal device 122 shown in FIG. 1). However, it can be understood that the network device 102 can communicate with any number of terminal devices similar to the terminal device 116 or the terminal device 122. The terminal devices 116 and 122 may be various devices that communicate with the network device 102, for example, the terminal device 116 may be a cellular phone, smart phone, portable computer, handheld communication device, handheld computing device, satellite radio, global positioning system, PDA And / or any other suitable device for communicating on the wireless communication system 100.

As shown in FIG. 1, the terminal device 116 communicates with the antennas 112 and 114. Among them, the antennas 112 and 114 transmit information to the terminal device 116 through a forward link (also called downlink) 118 and receive information from the terminal device 116 through a reverse link (also called uplink) 120.

In addition, the terminal device 122 communicates with the antennas 104 and 106. Among them, the antennas 104 and 106 send information to the terminal device 122 through the forward link 124 and receive information from the terminal device 122 through the reverse link 126.

For example, in a frequency division duplex (FDD) system. For example, forward link 118 may use a different frequency band from reverse link 120, and forward link 124 may use a different frequency band from reverse link 126.

As another example, in a time division duplex (TDD) system and a full duplex system, the forward link 118 and the reverse link 120 can use a common frequency band, the forward link 124 and the reverse link The link 126 may use a common frequency band.

Each antenna (or an antenna group consisting of multiple antennas) and / or area designed for communication is called a sector of the network device 102.

For example, the antenna group may be designed to communicate with terminal devices in sectors in the coverage area of the network device 102. The network device may send signals to all terminal devices in its corresponding sector through a single antenna or multiple antenna transmit diversity. In the process of the network device 102 communicating with the terminal devices 116 and 122 through the forward links 118 and 124, respectively, the transmit antenna of the network device 102 may also use beamforming to improve the signal-to-noise ratio of the forward links 118 and 124.

In addition, when the network device 102 uses beamforming to transmit signals to randomly distributed terminal devices 116 and 122 in the relevant coverage area, compared to the way that the network device sends signals to all of its terminal devices through single antenna or multi-antenna transmit diversity, Mobile devices in neighboring cells will experience less interference.

At a given time, the network device 102, the terminal device 116, or the terminal device 122 may be a wireless communication transmitting device and / or a wireless communication receiving device. When transmitting data, the wireless communication transmitting device may encode the data for transmission. Specifically, the wireless communication transmitting device may acquire (eg, generate, receive from other communication devices, or store in a memory, etc.) a certain number of data bits to be transmitted to the wireless communication receiving device through the channel. Such data bits may be contained in a transport block (or multiple transport blocks) of data, which may be segmented to produce multiple code blocks.

In addition, the system 100 may be a PLMN network, a D2D network, an M2M network, an IoT network, or other networks. FIG. 1 is only a simplified schematic diagram of an example, and the network may also include other network devices, which are not shown in FIG. 1.

It should be understood that FIG. 1 is only a simple schematic diagram used to illustrate the applicable scenarios of the cell selection method provided in the embodiments of the present application, and does not constitute any limitation to the present application.

In the following, in order to facilitate the understanding of the method for selecting a cell provided in the embodiments of the present application, several basic concepts are first introduced.

1. Same frequency networking.

In the divided cells, the same carrier frequency is used uniformly. The method of co-frequency networking is suitable for the situation where the operator's spectrum resources are tight and the communication system bandwidth is relatively wide. as shown in picture 2.

Figure 2 is a schematic diagram of the same frequency networking. The diagram includes multiple cells using carrier frequency 1.

The advantages of co-frequency networking include:

1) Utilize the least spectrum resources, high spectrum efficiency;

2) The location of the cell edge can overcome the interference problem to a certain extent and improve the user experience.

The disadvantages of co-frequency networking include:

1) Network construction is difficult, with high requirements for overlapping coverage control and strict requirements for network structure and site conditions;

2) The performance of the same-frequency network decreases rapidly as the load increases, the edge rate is low, and the user's perception ability deteriorates.

2. Inter-frequency networking.

In the divided cells, different carrier frequencies are used. As shown in Figure 3.

Figure 3 is a schematic diagram of an inter-frequency networking. The diagram includes multiple cells using different carrier frequencies.

The advantages of inter-frequency networking include:

1) The difficulty of network construction is low, and the control requirements for overlapping coverage and the requirements for network structure and site conditions are low;

2) The performance of the same-frequency network is less affected by the network load, and the user perception is good;

3) Can greatly reduce co-channel interference, easily achieve higher throughput rate, and improve the network competitive advantage;

4) When the spectrum resources are sufficient, the throughput rate can be effectively improved.

Disadvantages of inter-frequency networking include:

1) Utilize more spectrum resources;

2) A small amount of power consumption for cell reselection will increase.

3. System news.

System messages include a master message block (master information block, MIB) and multiple system message blocks (system information block, SIB).

Among them, the MIB message is broadcast on a physical broadcast channel (physical broadcast channel, PBCH); the SIB is delivered through a radio resource control (RRC) message of a physical downlink shared channel (physical downlink shared channel, PDSCH).

Specifically, this application mainly relates to SIB1 and SIB5 in the above SIB. The following briefly introduces SIB1 and SIB5.

1) SIB1 in the system message block type 1 (system information block type 1) message, including terminal cell access information and other SIB scheduling information:

The identification code of the public land mobile network (PLMN) of the network;

Tracking area code (tracking area code, TAC) and cell identification (identify, ID);

Cell prohibition status, indicating whether the user can reside in the cell;

Select the cell standard and indicate the minimum acceptance level required;

Transmission time and period of other SIBs.

2) SIB5 includes neighbor cell information for inter-frequency cell reselection, such as: neighbor cell list, carrier frequency, cell reselection priority, user threshold from the current serving cell to other high or low priority frequencies, etc.

Under the rapid development of communication technology, mobile communication is moving from the connection between people to the connection between people and things, and the interconnection of all things is an inevitable trend.

However, based on the current 4G network, the connection ability between objects is insufficient. In fact, compared with short-range communication technologies such as Bluetooth and wireless personal area network (ZigBee), cellular networks have the characteristics of wide coverage, mobility, and a large number of terminal devices that can be connected. Cellular networks can bring things to things. Richer application scenarios. Cellular network communication technology should become the main connection technology of the Internet of Things.

NB-IoT is an emerging technology in the field of Internet of Things. NB-IoT is built on a cellular network and consumes only about 180KHz of bandwidth. NB-IoT can be directly deployed in a global mobile communication system (GSM) network, universal mobile communication system (UMTS) network or long term evolution (LTE) network to reduce NB -Deployment cost of IoT and smooth upgrade of communication technology.

Specifically, NB-IoT includes the following four characteristics:

1. Wide coverage. In the same frequency band, the gain of NB-IoT is 20dB larger than that of the existing network, which is equivalent to improving the ability to cover the area by 100 times;

2. Ability to support massive connections. One sector of NB-IoT can support 100,000 connections, support low latency sensitivity, ultra-low device cost, low device power consumption, and optimized network architecture;

3. Lower power consumption. NB-IoT connected terminals can support up to 10 years of standby time;

Fourth, lower cost. The company expects that the single connection module of NB-IoT will not exceed US $ 5.

Because NB-IoT itself has the advantages of low power consumption, wide coverage, low cost and large capacity. The NB-IoT communication technology can be widely used in various industries. For example, remote meter reading, smart parking, smart city, etc.

However, the current application scenarios of NB-IoT communication technology are mostly limited to fixed reporting services. The application in the mobile scenario is not very extensive because the network service in the mobile scenario is constantly changing and needs to be switched in time. However, due to service life considerations, the terminal device cannot always be activated to detect changes in the network service.

In the current mobile scenario, there are two main schemes for terminal devices to switch network services:

1. The terminal device works in extended discontinuous reception (eDRX) mode, or the terminal device works in discontinuous reception (DRX) mode. The terminal equipment realizes the switching of network services through the cell reselection mechanism;

Second, the terminal equipment works in PSM. The terminal device realizes the switching of network services by exiting the PSM re-searching mechanism.

The terminal device works in eDRX, DRX and PSM, which is a technology that can save power consumption when the terminal device in the NB-IoT performs network service switching.

The principle that the terminal device works in the PSM is to allow the terminal device to turn off the signal transmission and reception and access layer related functions after entering the idle state for a period of time, which is equivalent to partial shutdown, thereby reducing the power consumption of the antenna, radio frequency, and signaling processing. During the PSM, the terminal device does not accept any paging from network devices. For the network device side, the terminal device under the PSM is unreachable.

The terminal equipment works in DRX, which is to support the terminal equipment to no longer continuously detect the signal quality of the serving cell and the neighboring cell, thereby achieving the purpose of saving power consumption.

eDRX is an enhancement to DRX technology. Then, when the terminal device works in eDRX, the terminal device supports a longer detection period, thereby achieving the purpose of saving power consumption.

The above-mentioned DRX mode and PSM are briefly introduced in conjunction with FIGS. 4 and 5.

In the scenario where the terminal device moves, a common working mode of the terminal device is to work in the DRX mode, and the network service switching is implemented through a cell reselection mechanism.

FIG. 4 is a schematic diagram of the terminal device provided in this application working in the DRX mode. The schematic diagram includes seven steps S410-S470. The seven steps are described in detail below.

S410, the terminal device enters an idle state.

The terminal device returns to the idle state after the connection is released. Among them, the idle state means that the terminal device is in a radio resource control idle (radio resource control, RRC IDLE) state. Specifically, the idle state may also be referred to as the IDLE state.

Further, the terminal device in the idle state measures the signal of the serving cell with a DRX cycle as a time interval.

Specifically, the terminal equipment measuring the signal of the serving cell includes: measuring the value of the reference signal received power (RSRP) of the serving cell, measuring the value of the reference signal received quality (RSRQ) of the serving cell, and Signal-to-interference ratio (signal to interference plus ratio, SINR) and received signal strength indicator (received signal strength indicator, RSSI).

In this embodiment, the signal value of the serving cell measured by the terminal device or the measurement value based on the signal of the serving cell is referred to as the first measurement value.

S420: Determine whether the first measurement value is lower than the threshold for reselecting measurement start.

Specifically, the reselection measurement start threshold refers to a threshold at which the terminal device starts cell reselection measurement. Specifically, the cell reselection measurement threshold is the reselection measurement threshold specified in the cell reselection criterion when the terminal device in the prior art performs cell reselection measurement. This application does not limit this, so no specific explanations will be given.

When the first measurement value is lower than the reselection measurement start threshold, the terminal device executes S430. When the first measurement value is not lower than the reselection measurement start threshold, the terminal device does not perform cell reselection measurement and is still in an idle state.

S430, the terminal device starts the same frequency or different frequency measurement.

When the first measurement value is lower than the reselection measurement start threshold, the terminal device starts the co-frequency or inter-frequency measurement, and measures the signal of the neighboring cell with one DRX cycle as the time interval.

Specifically, the terminal device measuring the signal of the neighboring cell includes: measuring the value of RSRP of the neighboring cell and measuring the value of RSRQ of the neighboring cell, as well as the SINR and RSSI.

In this embodiment, the signal value of the neighboring cell measured by the terminal device or the measurement value based on the signal of the neighboring cell is called the second measurement value.

Further, whether the terminal device performs on-frequency or off-frequency measurement is related to the condition that the first measurement value meets. This application does not involve this, and will not be described in detail here.

S440: Determine whether the second measurement value meets a preset condition.

When the signal quality of the neighboring cell is higher than the serving cell for a period of time, cell reselection starts. Switch to the network service of the neighboring cell. It should be understood that the specific duration of "a period of time" involved in this application is specified by the communication system, and this application is not limited.

That is, when the above second measurement value meets the reselection criterion, the terminal device executes S450 to perform cell reselection. When the second measurement value does not satisfy the reselection criterion, the terminal device continues to execute S430 to perform co-frequency or inter-frequency measurement.

S460: Determine whether the cell reselection is successful.

When the cell reselection is successful, the terminal device continues to be in an idle state; when the cell reselection fails, the terminal device needs to perform S470, and then continues to camp on the current serving cell.

The terminal device shown in FIG. 4 works in DRX mode. Before the cell reselection is completed, the terminal device needs to keep measuring the signal of the serving cell and the signal of the neighboring cell at intervals of one DRX cycle; The signal of the cell is to ensure that the network service will not change.

Further, the terminal device shown in FIG. 4 works in DRX mode. The terminal equipment needs to spend a lot of time to complete the cell reselection, that is, the delay and power consumption required for the network service switching is very large.

It should be understood that what is shown in FIG. 4 is that the terminal device works in the DRX mode, and when the terminal device works in the eDRX mode, the delay and power consumption required for the network service switching will be very large, which will not be repeated here.

In the scenario where the terminal device is moving, another common working mode of the terminal device is to work under the PSM, and the terminal device switches the network service by exiting the PSM and searching the network again.

FIG. 5 is a schematic diagram of the terminal device provided by the present application working under the PSM. The schematic diagram includes six steps S510-S560. The six steps are described in detail below.

S510, the terminal device enters an idle state.

The terminal device returns to the idle state after the connection is released.

S520, the terminal device enters the PSM.

Specifically, after the terminal device is idle for a period of time, it will enter the PSM. Among them, the time period of being in the idle state for a period of time is not limited in this application, and may be specified in the agreement or may be notified by the network device to the terminal device.

It should be understood that the terminal will not detect the surrounding network under the PSM. That is to say, the terminal device under the PSM will not detect the signals of the serving cell and the neighbor cell as shown in FIG. 4, which can save power consumption.

S530, the terminal device exits the PSM.

Specifically, when the terminal device needs to be woken up, the terminal device exits the PSM and enters the idle state. The terminal device being awakened refers to that the terminal device may need to receive information sent by the network device, or the terminal device is awakened when the terminal device meets a preset wake-up condition.

For example, the terminal device meeting the preset wake-up condition may be when the tracking area update (TAU) period request timer expires, or the terminal device has a Monternet (MO) service to process and actively exits the PSM.

In this application, there is no limitation as to whether the terminal device is in a predetermined wake-up condition, and it may be any wake-up condition in the prior art.

S540. The terminal device searches for the last resident frequency.

The terminal device selects a cell according to the frequency of the cell where it last camped. Among them, the cell where the terminal device last camped is the cell where the terminal device camped before entering the idle state.

S550: Determine whether a cell is found.

When the terminal device selects a cell according to the frequency point of the last camped cell, if no suitable cell can be found at that frequency point, the terminal device performs S560 to perform a full-band network search.

Among them, the full-band search refers to the terminal device performing a full-band search according to its own capabilities and settings, trying to read the information of the strongest signal cell on each frequency point. Once the terminal equipment searches the entire frequency band, the power consumption of the terminal equipment is relatively large, and the delay of the selected cell is large.

As shown in Figure 5, the terminal device works under the PSM. The network service switching is realized by exiting the PSM re-searching mechanism. In the same frequency networking mode, this mode has lower latency and power consumption; but in the different frequency networking mode, because the frequency points deployed in each cell are different, it cannot be directly performed according to the frequency point of the last camped cell Select the cell, and the time delay and power consumption of the full-band network search are large, or the service delay and power consumption are large due to the poor cell selection of the terminal device, or the terminal device cannot select the same frequency cell.

In order to solve the problem of delay and power consumption when switching network services. This application proposes a method for cell selection. It can reduce the time delay and power consumption when switching network services, and the terminal device can quickly and accurately select the appropriate service cell after exiting the PSM. The method for selecting a cell provided by an embodiment of the present application is described in detail below with reference to FIG. 6.

Among them, at least two of the plurality of frequency points are different, for example, the plurality of frequency points include frequency point information of the serving cell of the current terminal device and different frequency points different from the frequency point of the serving cell, serving A cell is a cell that provides services to terminal equipment.

Optionally, in some embodiments, the terminal device reads the system information of the serving cell to obtain the first information.

For example, after the terminal device enters the idle state, the terminal device reads the system message of the serving cell. Obtain the PLMN and frequency information of the serving cell in SIB1, and the inter-frequency frequency information in SIB5.

Optionally, in other embodiments, the terminal device acquires the information of the multiple frequency points when multiple cells corresponding to the multiple frequency points are camped on.

For example, the first information includes information of five frequency points of A, B, C, D, and E. Wherein, the information of the frequency points A-E is the information of the frequency points acquired by the terminal device when camping on the cell A-cell E.

That is to say, the first information obtained by the terminal device may be obtained by reading the system message of the serving cell, or by obtaining information of different frequency points when camping on different cells. Specifically, the terminal device may also obtain the first information through other methods, and no further examples are given here.

Optionally, the first information further includes information of a PLMN of at least one network, where the PLMN of the one network corresponds to one or more frequency points, and the one frequency point corresponds to the PLMN of one or more networks;

Or, one frequency point corresponds to one or more network PLMNs.

The first information includes PLMN (A, B, C) information of 3 networks, and also includes information of 3 frequency points (a1, a2, a3). Among them, a1 corresponds to A, B, C; a2 corresponds to A, B, C; a3 corresponds to A, B, C.

Optionally, FIG. 6 further includes S611, the terminal device saves the first frequency point.

Specifically, before the terminal device acquires and saves the first information, the method further includes:

When detecting the first frequency point, the terminal device saves the first frequency point, where the first frequency point is a frequency point other than the plurality of frequency points described in S610.

For example, when the terminal device detects a change in the surrounding network environment, the first frequency point is detected, or the number of frequency points deployed by the network device changes, and the terminal device is notified that the first frequency point is newly added. Specifically, the terminal device stores the first frequency point in the storage unit of the terminal device, which can be understood as the correspondence between updating the first information and updating the PLMN of the network and the multiple frequency points.

It should be understood that the change of the network around the terminal device may be a change of any kind of network environment. I will not list them one by one here. This application is not limited to this, as long as the terminal device detects the information of the frequency point or the information of the PLMN of the network, the terminal device can update the saved first information.

Specifically, the terminal device may save the acquired first information in the memory of the terminal device. For example, it is stored in the flash memory of the terminal device.

Further, FIG. 6 further includes S612, the terminal device enters the PSM.

The terminal device enters the PSM when the first preset condition is satisfied. Specifically, the first preset condition may be that the terminal device is in an idle state for a period of time, or the first preset condition may be that the timer for entering the PSM set by the terminal device reaches a preset time, or the first preset condition may be It is any condition in the prior art that allows the terminal device to enter the PSM. This application does not limit this.

S620. The terminal device selects a cell.

After exiting the PSM, the terminal device selects a cell according to the first information.

For example, the terminal device exits the PSM when the second preset condition is satisfied, where the second preset condition may be that the TAU cycle request timer of the terminal device times out, or the terminal device actively processes to exit the PSM due to processing of MO services, or, The second preset condition may be any condition in the prior art that enables the terminal device to exit the PSM.

Then, after exiting the PSM, the terminal device reads the N frequency points from the storage unit. And detect the energy of the N frequency points, according to the size of the energy of each frequency point, select frequency points in order from the largest to the small cell search. When the cell search is performed based on the frequency point with the highest energy and a suitable cell is found, the cell selection is completed; when the cell search is performed based on the frequency point with the highest energy and no suitable cell is found, then based on the energy second only to the frequency with the highest energy Another frequency point of the point is used for cell search. In this way, the cycle continues until a suitable cell is found. It is assumed that the terminal device performs a cell search based on the N frequency points, and when no suitable cell is found, the terminal device performs a full-band network search.

Optionally, in other embodiments, after the terminal device exits the PSM, the first frequency point set corresponding to the PLMN of the surrounding network is extracted from the first information according to the PLMN of the surrounding network of the terminal device , The first frequency point set includes at least one frequency point; the terminal device selecting a cell according to the first information includes: the terminal device performing energy detection on the first frequency point set; the terminal device according to the first In a frequency point set, the energy of each frequency point is selected from the largest to the smallest frequency point for cell search, and the cell is selected.

When the terminal device stores the correspondence between the PLMN of the at least one network and the multiple frequency points as shown in Table 1 above. The first frequency point set is 6 frequency points (a1, a2, a3, b1, b2, b3). According to the acquired information of the 6 frequency points, energy detection is performed on the 6 frequency points. The frequency with the highest energy is preferentially selected for cell search and the cell is selected.

If a suitable cell has been found, the cell search is completed. If no suitable cell is found, execute S792 to determine whether there are other frequency points. That is, it is judged whether all the frequency points read from the flash have been searched.

If there is no other frequency point, execute S793 to conduct a full-band network search.
