Application: Beam failure recovery with secondary cells (Patent ID: US20240106698A1)

The patent filed by MediaTek Inc. proposes a method for performing beam failure recovery (BFR) procedures in primary and secondary cells with reduced complexity for user equipment (UE) operating in one or multiple frequency bands with carrier aggregation or dual connectivity. The method involves determining the number of frequency bands for BFR detection in secondary cells, introducing a sharing factor based on this number, and conducting BFR or candidate beam identification (CBD) on the primary cell and secondary cells using different evaluation periods calculated based on the sharing factor.

The claims outline the steps involved in the method, including establishing connections in primary and secondary cells, determining the number of frequency bands for BFR detection, and performing BFR or CBD on the primary and secondary cells. The claims also specify scenarios where certain frequency bands are excluded, the sharing factor calculation, and limitations on the number of active serving cells or secondary cells that can undergo BFR or CBD procedures. The User Equipment (UE) described in the claims includes modules for connection handling, control, and BFR handling to implement the proposed method effectively, ensuring efficient beam failure recovery in beamforming communication networks.
