1. A method of communication, comprising:selecting, by a network entity, an uplink control channel transmission window length from a plurality of uplink control channel transmission window lengths for an uplink control channel transmission window, wherein each of the plurality of uplink control channel transmission window lengths corresponds to a variable-sized transmission time interval (TTI) defining the uplink control channel transmission window during which one or more user equipments (UEs) served by the network entity can communicate and is associated with a bandwidth allocation on the uplink control channel during the uplink control channel transmission window; and
transmitting, by the network entity, an indication of the uplink control channel transmission window length to at least one of the one or more UEs for allowing the one or more UEs to transmit on the uplink control channel during the uplink control channel transmission window in accordance with the associated bandwidth allocation.
