DETAILED DESCRIPTION

[0056]
Section headings are used in the present document only for ease of understanding and do not limit scope of the embodiments to the section in which they are described. Furthermore, while embodiments are described with reference to 5G examples, the disclosed techniques may be applied to wireless systems that use protocols other than 5G or 3GPP protocols.
[0057]
The development of the new generation of wireless communication –5G New Radio (NR) communication –is a part of a continuous mobile broadband evolution process to meet the requirements of increasing network demand. NR will provide greater throughput to allow more users connected at the same time. Other aspects, such as energy consumption, device cost, spectral efficiency, and latency are also important to meeting the needs of various communication scenarios.
[0058]
This patent document describes techniques that can be implemented to avoid or reduce paging collision. Paging collisions may include instances of paging messages associated with multiple Universal Mobile Telephone System (UMTS) Subscriber Identify Modules (USIMs) that overlap in time. In this event, the terminals (UEs) operating as a single receiver may make a choice of monitoring a single paging channel at a time, which may lead to unsuccessful paging on other paging channels.
[0059]
Overview
[0060]
In NR, a UE may monitor a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) monitoring occasion for paging. The UE may monitor one paging occasion (PO) in a paging frame (PF) within a Discontinuous Reception (DRX) cycle. Reception of paging message on paging occasion may refer to monitoring the PDCCH addressed to paging RNTI on the paging occasion. A System Frame Number (SFN) for a PF may be determined by: (SFN + PF_offset) mod T = (T div N) * (UE_ID mod N) . An Index (i_s) may indicate that the index of the PO is determined by: i_s= floor (UE_ID/N) mod Ns.
[0061]
The following parameters may be utilized in calculating a PF and/or an i_s. T may equal a Discontinuous Reception (DRX) cycle of the UE. T may be determined by the shortest UE-specific DRX value, if configured by RRC or upper layers, and a default DRX value broadcast in system information. If a UE specific DRX is not configured by radio resource control (RRC) or by upper layers, the default value may be applied. N may equal a number of total paging frames in T. Ns may equal number of paging occasions for a PF. PF_offset may include an offset used for PF determination. UE_ID may include a 5G S-Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity (5G-S-TMSI) mod 1024.
[0062]
The PDCCH monitoring occasions for paging may be determined according to pagingSearchSpace and firstPDCCH-MonitoringOccasionOfPO, if configured. Alternatively, if SearchSpaceId = 0 and configured for pagingSearchSpace, the PDCCH monitoring occasions for paging may be the same as for Remaining Minimum System Information (RMSI) . The UE_ID may include the 10 least significant bits of 5G-S-TMSI, which may be allocated by the serving network. PF_offset, T, N, Ns may all be configured by the serving network.
[0063]
A UE with multiple USIMs may be in operation at the same time. Each USIM may be viewed as a separate device with respect to the network and can camp on different cells for service. Each USIM within a UE may be paged by the serving cell separately and may monitor the PDCCH occasion for paging based on the configuration from each serving gNB. Considering that the gNB associated with one USIM may not have an idea on the paging UE ID (LSB 10bits of 5G-S-TMSI) and the paging resource configuration used in the other gNB associated to the other USIM, in some instances, the paging occurrences associated with multiple USIMs may overlap in time.
[0064]
Paging collision may refer to the situation of multiple paging occurrences associated with the multiple USIMs that overlap at an instance in time. UEs operating as a single Rx may need to make a choice of monitoring a single paging channel at a time, which can lead to unsuccessful paging on the other paging channel (s) .
[0065]
System Overview
[0066]
The present application relates avoiding paging collision or reducing unsuccessful paging when paging collision occurs. From the perspective of a UE, the UE may receive a configuration for paging reception from a network (NW) and determine an additional paging occasion based on the received configuration. This may include the step of the UE receiving a configuration for paging reception from the NW side. This may also include the step of the UE determining an additional paging occasion based on the received configuration.
[0067]
Alternatively, from a perspective of a base station (gNB) associated with any of the USIMs included in a UE may coordinate with other gNBs to avoid paging to the UE with different USIMs in the same time interval.
[0068]
The NW node (e.g., a base station) may send a paging message on an additional paging occasion to a UE in specific instances. The base station may receive UE capability from a Core Network Node via an interface such as a S1 or NG-C interface, for example, to determine whether the additional paging occasion can be supported by a UE and/or determine to send a paging message on an additional paging occasion to UE. In the interface (e.g., S1 or NG-C) , the UE capability can be included in the Paging message, or together with other UE capability information in InitialContextSetupRequest.
[0069]
Since the base station can be divided into a Centralized Unit (CU) and Distributed Unit (DU) , a PAGING message that can include paging information may be sent from CU to DU to enable DU to page the UE. The DU may receive UE capability information from CU via an interface, such as a F1 interface, to determine the additional paging occasion can be supported by a UE and/or determine whether to send a paging message on an additional paging occasion to UE. In the F1 interface, the UE capability can be included in the PAGING message.
[0070]
The UE may monitor the additional paging occasion to receive paging in a cell in specific instances. The configuration for the paging reception during an additional paging occasion can be included in either system information or dedicated signaling. For the case in which the UE is released to INACTIVE state, the configuration for the reception of an additional PO can be included in the RRC release message.
[0071]
For a UE in an RRC_INACTIVE state, the UE may only need to monitor the additional paging occasion to receive paging if the following conditions are satisfied. A first condition may include the reception of an additional paging occasion configured in the RRC release message with which the UE may move to an RRC_INACTIVE state. A second condition may include the configuration of the paging occasion being broadcasted in system information of the cell in which the UE is camped.
[0072]
The UE may determine the location of the additional paging occasion using specific techniques. The UE may determine the location of additional paging occasion based on the location of the first paging occasion. The additional paging occasion may be located offset after the paging occasion in the time domain. The offset can either be fixed or configurable by RRC signaling (e.g. in either system information or dedicated signaling) .
[0073]
The first paging occasion may include a paging occasion supported by a legacy standard, and the location of first paging occasion is determined by a formula specified in standard:
[0074]
The first paging frame (PF) and first paging occasion (PO) may be determined by the following formula:
[0075]
SFN for the PF is determined by:
[0076]
(SFN + PF_offset) mod T = (T div N) * (UE_ID mod N)
[0077]
Index (i_s) , indicating the index of the PO is determined by:
[0078]
i_s= floor (UE_ID/N) mod Ns
[0079]
The following parameters are used for the calculation of PF and i_sabove:
[0080]
T: DRX cycle of the UE (T is determined by the shortest of the UE specific DRX value, if configured by RRC or upper layers, and a default DRX value broadcast in system information. If UE specific DRX is not configured by RRC or by upper layers, the default value is applied) .
[0081]
N: number of total paging frames in T
[0082]
Ns: number of paging occasions for a PF
[0083]
PF_offset: offset used for PF determination
[0084]
UE_ID: 5G-S-TMSI mod 1024
[0085]
The location of the first paging occasion inside the first paging frame are determined according to pagingSearchSpace and firstPDCCH-MonitoringOccasionOfPO if configured. Otherwise, when SearchSpaceId = 0 is configured for pagingSearchSpace, the location of the first paging occasion are same as the location PDCCH monitoring occasion for RMSI which is specified in the current specifications. The UE_ID may include the 10 least significant bits of 5G-S-TMSI, which is allocated by the serving network. PF_offset, T, N, Ns and are all configured by the serving network.
[0086]
The UE may calculate the additional paging occasion based on the additional paging UE ID. From a base station (e.g. eNB or gNB) point of view, the additional paging ID can be either from a core network node or from the UE. The UE may inform the additional paging UE ID to a base station directly. The UE may inform the additional paging UE ID to the Core Network, and Core Network may inform the base station (e.g. eNB or gNB) of the additional UE ID. Core network may inform the additional paging UE ID to both UE and base station (e.g. eNB or gNB) .
[0087]
In some embodiments, the offset may be configurable. In a first instance, the offset may be given in any of a radio frame level, slot level, or a symbol level (e.g. the number of radio frames and/or slots and/or symbols between the first paging occasion and the additional paging occasion) . In a second instance, the offset may be given in a paging frame level and/or a PO level (e.g. the number of paging frames and/or POs between the first paging occasion and the additional paging occasion) . In a third instance, a radio frame level offset may be provided to determine the location of radio frame, and the location of the additional paging occasion within the radio frame may be the same as the location of the first paging occasion within the first paging frame. In a fourth instance, a paging frame level offset may be given to determine the location of a paging frame, and the location of the additional paging occasion within the radio frame may be the same as the location of the first paging occasion within the first paging frame.
[0088]
The offset can be either a positive value (e.g. additional paging occasion is after the first paging occasion in the time domain) or a negative value (e.g. additional paging occasion is before the first paging occasion in the time domain) .
[0089]
Zero or one or more additional paging occasions may be configured. For the case when more than one additional paging occasions is configured, a common offset, an offset between the first paging occasion and the first additional paging occasion, as well as the offset between two consecutive additional paging occasions or a list of offsets, each of which is the offset between the first paging occasion and one specific additional paging occasion, can be given. The number of the additional paging occasions and/or the common offset or a list of offsets can be fixed in specs or configurable by RRC signaling (e.g. in either system information or dedicated signaling) .
[0090]
The length of the additional paging occasion can be the same as or different from the first paging occasion. The length of the addition paging occasion (e.g. the number of symbols or slots) can be either be fixed in specs or configurable by RRC signaling (e.g. in either system information or dedicated signaling) .
[0091]
Both the first paging occasion and second paging occasion may be located in a time domain periodically. The period for the first paging occasion and second paging occasion is the same. Or, in some embodiments, the period for the first paging occasion and second paging occasion can be configured separately.
[0092]
For the concerned UE, an identical paging record shall be sent on both the first paging occasion and the additional paging occasion. If the corresponding paging record is not detected in one paging occasion associated with the UE, the UE can then assume that no paging record will be transmitted in the rest of paging occasions associated with the UE within the same paging DRX. For each paging DRX cycle, once the corresponding paging record is received on the first paging occasion (corresponding PagingUE-Identity is found in the paging record) , the UE can ignore/skip the reception of additional paging occasion. Alternatively, for each paging DRX cycle, once the corresponding paging record is received on the additional paging occasion (corresponding PagingUE-Identity is found in the paging record) , the UE can ignore/skip the reception of the first paging occasion.
[0093]
FIG. 1A illustrates a block diagram 100a of an example series of paging frames and a paging occasion. The SFN of the PF for UE_ID = 1 may be determined by: (SFN + PF_offset) mod T = (T div N) * (UE_ID mod N) . Index (i_s) may indicate the index of the PO, which may be determined by: i_s= floor (UE_ID/N) mod Ns.
[0094]
The following parameters are used for the calculation of PF and i_s: T: DRX cycle of the UE. N: number of total paging frames in T. Ns: number of paging occasions for a PF. PF_offset: offset used for PF determination.
[0095]
The PDCCH monitoring occasions for paging may be determined according to pagingSearchSpace and firstPDCCH-MonitoringOccasionOfPO, if configured.
[0096]
The following configuration for paging occasion may be broadcast in system information of the cell, in which the UE is camped:
[0097]

[0111]
The Setting Monitoring-periodicity-PDCCH-slot may equal 1 and Monitoring-offset-PDCCH-slot may equal 0, which may indicate that the corresponding TS 38.331 parameter monitoringSlotPeriodicityAndOffset may contain the parameter sl1 set to a NULL value. The Monitoring-symbols-PDCCH-within-slot parameter may be a 14 bits long bitmap/bit string. Each bit in this bit string may represent an OFDM symbol in a slot. A bit set to one may indicate that the OFDM slot is a potential OFDM slot to monitor. This value may be assigned to the corresponding TS 38.331 parameter monitoringSymbolsWithinSlot.
[0112]
Example Embodiment 1
[0113]
A network node may receive UE capability information from a core network node using any of a S1 or NG-C interface and determine to send a paging message on an additional paging occasion for UE_ID = 1.
[0114]
The additional paging occasion may be located offset after the first paging occasion. The NW may include a configuration for the reception of an additional paging occasion, which may be the offset in a PO level and provides to UE via system information.
