Claim of US Patent No. 10,433,318

1. A method for operating a user equipment (UE) supporting a carrier aggregation of a plurality of serving cells in a wireless communication system, the method comprising:receiving a higher layer signal informing a carrier index field (CIF) value among a plurality of CIF values, wherein the CIF value is used in a scheduling cell, among the plurality of serving cells, to indicate a scheduled cell, among the plurality of serving cells, having a serving cell index among a plurality of serving cell indexes;
receiving, through the scheduling cell, scheduling information which has a carrier index field; and
receiving, through the scheduled cell, data scheduled by the scheduling information, when a value of the carrier index field of the scheduling information is the CIF value,
wherein a number of the plurality of CIF values is smaller than a number of the plurality of serving cell indexes,
wherein the higher layer signal further comprises:
serving cell identification information indicating a first scheduling cell and a second scheduling cell, each of the first scheduling cell and the second scheduling cell configured to schedule a respective first set of one or more scheduled cells and second set of one or more scheduled cells;
a first carrier index field (CIF) value used by the first scheduling cell to indicate the first set of one or more scheduled cells; and
a second CIF value used by the second scheduling cell to indicate the second set of one or more scheduled cells, and
wherein the first and second sets of one or more scheduled cells contain no common cell.
