Claim of US Patent No. 10,142,964

1. A method of signaling resource allocation information in a multicarrier communication system, the method comprising:allocating resources in a downlink allocation interval for a secondary downlink carrier and an uplink allocation interval for a secondary uplink carrier, wherein the downlink allocation interval is included in a part of a first subframe and a part of a second subframe on the secondary downlink carrier and starts at a first predefined offset after a start time of a subframe on a primary downlink carrier, wherein the uplink allocation interval is included in a part of a third subframe and a part of a fourth subframe on the secondary uplink carrier and starts at a second predefined offset after the start time of the subframe on the primary downlink carrier, wherein a duration of the downlink allocation interval is equal to a duration of one subframe, and wherein a duration of the uplink allocation interval is equal to the duration of one subframe; and
transmitting resource allocation information about the allocated resources in a control region included in the subframe on the primary downlink carrier to a mobile station, wherein the resource allocation information includes information indicating a start time for the downlink allocation interval for the secondary downlink carrier and information indicating a start time for the uplink allocation interval for the secondary uplink carrier,
wherein each of frequencies of the secondary downlink carrier and the secondary uplink carrier is higher than a frequency of the primary downlink carrier.
