In the traditional 3GPP version, the data communication occurs between the base station and the user equipment (UE). In 3GPP R (Release) 12, D2D communication is approved and discussed. The essential characteristics of D2D is to allow data transfer between the UEs. For FDD and TDD system, 3GPP has concluded that the UE is not allowed for simultaneous receiving and transmitting in D2D system in the RAN1 (Radio Access Network Working Group 1) #73 meeting. Furthermore, for avoiding the interference of the downlink data on D2D communication, the UE occupies the uplink subframe of the subframe (TDD) for D2D communication. The downlink subframe needs further discussion.

The other important issue about TDD system in 3GPP R12 is eIMTA (Enhanced Interference Traffic Adaptation). The frame structure of the traditional TDD system is configured via SIB (System Information Block), and the shortest configuration period is 640 ms (millisecond). eIMTA allows TDD system to adjust the frame structure dynamically (10 millisecond period). RAN1 #73 meeting concluded that the common physical layer signaling is used to dynamically configure the frame structure of the current frame. For 3GPP R12 and the previous LTE system, the optional range of SIB and the fame structure configured by the common physical layer signaling is TDD UL/DL frame structure #{0,1,2,3,4,5,6}.

Therefore, the D2D solution needs to support eIMTA scenario. One typical scenario is that two UEs performing D2D communication are in the coverage of the different service cells (or one is within the coverage of the service cell and the other one is outside the coverage of the service cell). At this point it requires studying how to perform the resource allocation for D2D communication.

SUMMARY

One principle for D2D resource allocation is to pretect the D2D user equipment (UE) from the downlink interference generated by the system equipment. Based on the inventor's research, it is found that in some specific scenarios the two UEs performing D2D communication may experience interference from the different downlink equipments. Two scenarios below are the examples for the two user equipments UE1, UE 2 performing D2D communication.

Scenario I: UE1 and UE 2 are respectively camping on the two service cells with different frame structures.

Scenario II: UE1 is under the service cell's coverage while UE2 is outside the coverage of the service cell (i.e. UE2 is not interfered by the downlink signals).

The disclosure provides a unified solution for the different scenarios.

The disclosure provides a method used in a user equipment that supports Device to Device transmission in Time Division Duplex system. The method comprises receiving a downlink signaling to obtain a first configured frame structure, or determining a first configured frame structure by itself; and transmitting a first D2D signaling to indicate the first configured frame structure.

In one embodiment, the first configured frame structure indicates an uplink or downlink direction for all the subframes within one radio frame.

The step of receiving a downlink signaling to obtain a first configured frame structure is applicable for the user equipment within the network coverage. That is, the user equipment is able to receive the downlink configured frame structure signaling from the service cell. There are two types of the downlink signaling in LTE network, which are System Information Block (SIB) and the common physical layer signaling. The former is suitable for a traditional scenario, and the latter is suitable for eIMTA scenario.

The step of determining a first configured frame structure by itself is applicable for the user equipment outside of the network coverage. That is, the user equipment can not reliably receive the data from the service cell or the user equipment does not search out the accessible cells. Therefore, the user equipment needs to determine the first configured frame structure by itself.

Specifically, according to one aspect of the disclosure, the first D2D signaling is a physical layer signaling.

To support eIMTA, the user equipment in D2D communication needs to dynamically inform the paired user equipment in D2D communication of the status of its frame structure.

Specifically, according to one aspect of the disclosure, when the UE determines the first configured frame structure by itself, the first configured frame structure is configured as uplink frame structure.

For the user equipment outside of the network coverage, it is not interfered by the downlink signals of the service cell. Therefore, all the subframes may be suitable for receiving the D2D signals.

Specifically, according to one aspect of the disclosure, the disclosure further comprises:

receiving a second D2D signaling to obtain a second configured frame structure;

wherein the second configured frame structure indicates a uplink or downlink direction for all the subframes within one radio frame.

In one embodiment, the aforementioned aspects are suitable for D2D communication with the peer configuration. That is each user equipment needs to report its frame structure to the peer user equipment, and in the meanwhile needs to receive a signaling corresponding to the frame structure from the peer user equipment. For D2D communication with the master-slave configuration, the slave UE only needs to report its frame structure to the master UE through signaling without acquiring the frame structure of the master UE.

In the D2D communication, the possible D2D communication resource scheduling (for example physical resource allocation, Hybrid Automatic Repeat Request (HARQ), retransmission resource allocation, power control, etc.) comprises the following approaches:

Approach 1: the system controls all the resource scheduling;

Approach 2: UE controls all the resource scheduling;

Approach 3: the system and UE together control the resource scheduling.

Approach 1 may require the excessive control signaling and may have larger delay. Approach 2 may generate a certain extent of interference on the non-D2D communication in the cell. Approach 3 is a reasonable solution. For example, the system allocates the frequency-domain resources, and the UE determines the time resources for D2D communication by itself. For Approach 2 and Approach 3, the UE is likely to determine the subframes available for D2D reception and D2D transmission. In eIMTA scenario of TDD, it is possible that the two UEs in D2D communication are configured with the different frame structures. Therefore, for a given UE, the available subframes for D2D reception may be different from the available subframes for D2D transmission.

Specifically, according to one aspect of the disclosure, the disclosure further comprises:

receiving the D2D signals in a subframe corresponding to the uplink subframe of the first configured frame structure.

The essence of the above aspect is that the UE can only receive the D2D signals in the uplink subframe of the configured frame structure so as to avoid the downlink interference.

Specifically, according to another aspect of the disclosure, the disclosure further comprises:

selecting a suitable subframe out of the subframes corresponding to the UL subframe of the second configured frame structure; and

transmitting the D2D signals on the suitable subframe.

The essence of the above aspect is that (in order to assure that the D2D receiving UE may receive the D2D signals) the UE transmits the D2D signals on the selected (one or more) subframe (s), which is (are) configured as UL subframe (s) for the D2D receiving UE. In one embodiment, the UE selects the suitable subframe(s) by itself. In another embodiment, the UE selects the suitable subframe(s) according to the instruction of the downlink selection signaling.

Specifically, according to one aspect of the disclosure, the UE receives the downlink signaling to obtain the first configured frame structure. The downlink signaling is SIB or a physical layer signaling. The first configured frame structure is one of TDD UL/DL frame structure #{0,1,2,3,4,5,6}.

The disclosure provides a method used in UE that supports D2D transmission under TDD system, comprising:

receiving a first D2D signaling to obtain a first configured frame structure;

wherein the first configured frame structure indicates a uplink or downlink direction for all the subframes within one radio frame.

Specifically, according to one aspect of the disclosure, the method further comprises:

selecting one (or more) suitable subframe (s) corresponding to the UL subframe of the first configured frame structure; and

transmitting the D2D signals on the suitable subframe(s).

Specifically, according to one aspect of the disclosure, the first D2D signaling is a physical layer signaling.

Specifically, according to one aspect of the disclosure, the first configured frame structure are configured as UL subframes; or the first configured frame structure is one of TDD UL/DL frame structure #{0,1,2,3,4,5,6}.

The disclosure provides a user equipment (UE) comprising:

a first module for receiving a downlink signaling to obtain a first configured frame structure, or determining a first configured frame structure by itself; and

a second module for transmitting a first D2D signaling to indicate the first configured frame structure;

wherein the first configured frame structure indicates a uplink or downlink direction for all the subframes within one radio frame.

The UE comprises, but not limited to mobile phones, tablet computers, data cards, laptops, and etc.

In one embodiment, the UE further comprises a third module for receiving a second D2D signaling to obtain a second configured frame structure; wherein the second configured frame structure indicates a uplink or downlink direction for all the subframes within one radio frame.

In one embodiment, the UE further comprises

a fifth module for selecting a suitable subframe(s) out of the subframes corresponding to the UL subframes of the second configured frame structure; and

a sixth module for transmitting the D2D signal on the suitable subframe.

In one embodiment, the UE further comprises a fourth module for receiving the D2D signal in one (or more) subframe(s) out of the subframes corresponding to the UL subframe of the first configured frame structure.

The disclosure solves the problem that the UE in D2D communication cannot determine the subframe for D2D signal transmission in eIMTA scenario. Through allowing the UE to transmit the configured frame structure to assure the peer UE being able to determine the subframe(s) for transmitting D2D signal, the disclosure maximumly maintain the compatibility with the existing systems.
