Claim of US Patent No. 10,397,958

1. A method for a network node, comprising:transmitting, from the network node to a user equipment (UE), a radio resource control (RRC) signalling with a plurality of backoff parameters including a first parameter and a second parameter, wherein the first parameter is zero (0) and the second parameter is not 0; and
transmitting, from the network node to the UE after transmitting the RRC signalling, a first random access response of a random access procedure including a first backoff indicator indicating a first backoff time, wherein whether to use the first parameter or the second parameter by the UE to adjust the backoff time is based on a purpose of the random access procedure.
