1. A method, comprising:at a user equipment (UE);
receiving a plurality of signals from a wireless network, wherein the plurality of signals includes a physical channel and a common channel;
measuring a power parameter of the plurality of signals, wherein the power parameter measures the power allocated to the common channel relative to a total received power spectral density for the plurality of signals; and
in response to a conditional event triggered by the power parameter measurement, sending a notification to a serving apparatus indicating that modification to the physical channel is required to match a target signal-to-interference level for the UE.
