HARQ PROCESS IN A WIRELESS NETWORK

Ofinno, LLC, Reston, VA ...

1. A method comprising:receiving, by a wireless device, a radio resource control message comprising a periodicity parameter indicating a number of symbols;
receiving a downlink control information indicating activation of a periodic resource allocation, wherein the downlink control information comprises one or more fields indicating a numerology; and
transmitting a transport block associated with a hybrid automatic repeat request (HARQ) process identifier via radio resources associated with the periodic resource allocation, wherein the HARQ identifier is based on the numerology and the number of symbols.
