Claim of US Patent No. 10,172,135

1. A control signaling and scheduling method performed by a wireless transmit/receive unit (WTRU), the method comprising:receiving a first control channel using a first antenna pattern;
receiving a second control channel using a second antenna pattern;
demodulating and decoding the first control channel;
demodulating and decoding the second control channel;
determining, using at least one of the decoded first control channel or the decoded second control channel, beam scheduling information associated with the WTRU and whether the WTRU is scheduled for a millimeter wave (mmW) segment;
on a condition that the WTRU is scheduled for the mmW segment
forming a receive beam using the determined beam scheduling information,
receiving the second control channel using the receive beam, and
determining, using the demodulated and decoded second control channel, dynamic per-transmission time interval (TTI) scheduling information related to a data channel associated with the second control channel.
