Claim of US Patent No. 10,342,001

1. A base stations, comprising:a transmitter;
a receiver; and
a processing circuit coupled to the transmitter and the receiver and is configured at least to:
transmit, via the transmitter, a service configuration to start an on-demand transmission;
configure a control signaling to schedule a schedulable resource based or the service configuration in response to starting the on-demand transmission; and
transmit, via the transmitter, the control signaling to an external base station for triggering reference signals of the external base station to transmit the scheduled schedulable resource, wherein the reference signals are aperiodic and directional:
wherein the service configuration indicates a user equipment (UE) to be scheduled for service,
wherein the control signaling comprises beam configuration and reference signal configuration for the UE,
wherein the reference signals are produced by the external base station according to the control signaling.
