Claim of US Patent No. 10,397,940

1. A method for wireless communications, comprising:receiving, at a user equipment (UE) from a serving access point, a reference signal configuration specifying a periodicity related to transmitting reference signals over at least one symbol in a plurality of subframes;
receiving, at the UE from the serving access point, downlink control information having a dynamic resource allocation indicator;
determining, at the UE, the dynamic resource allocation indicator indicates to override, for a period of time corresponding to an uplink resource grant, the reference signal configuration in one of the plurality of subframes, wherein determining that the dynamic resource allocation indicator indicates to override the reference signal configuration comprises determining that the dynamic resource allocation indicator indicates the at least one symbol is for the uplink data communications in the one of the plurality of subframes corresponding to the uplink resource grant; and
transmitting, by the UE to the serving access point and based at least in part on the determination that the dynamic resource allocation indicator indicates to override the reference signal configuration in the one of the plurality of subframes, uplink data communications over the at least one symbol in the one of the plurality of subframes.
