Claim of US Patent No. 10,368,336

1. A method of communication, comprising:transmitting a set of resources allocated for an evolved multimedia broadcast multicast service (eMBMS) burst to a wireless device, the set of resources based at least in part on a reduced symbol period, the reduced symbol period corresponding to an enhanced component carrier (eCC) configuration and is based at least in part on an extended cyclic prefix (CP) length; and
transmitting the eMBMS burst employing the set of resources, a first symbol period of the set of resources being associated with a cell-specific reference signal (CRS) preamble and a second symbol period of the set of resources being a unicast control symbol period, wherein a control message in the unicast control symbol period indicates a unicast data transmission utilizing the set of resources,
wherein the reduced symbol period is based at least in part on the extended CP length corresponding to a bandwidth range associated with the eMBMS and a second reduced symbol period is based at least in part on a non-extended CP length corresponding to a bandwidth range associated with the unicast data transmission.
