Claim of US Patent No. 10,462,786

1. A resource configuration method in a time division duplex mode, the method comprising:obtaining, by a network device, subframe information of each of multiple cells, wherein the subframe information of each of the multiple cells comprises subframe configuration information and flexible subframe resource requirement information of each cell, the subframe configuration information of each cell comprises a configuration for each flexible subframe of N flexible subframes in each cell as an uplink subframe or a downlink subframe, the flexible subframe resource requirement information of each cell comprises at least one of the following: a quantity of flexible subframes that are configured as uplink subframes and that are required by each cell, or a quantity of flexible subframes that are configured as downlink subframes and that are required by each cell, and N is a positive integer;
determining, by the network device, a flexible subframe resource configuration of each of the multiple cells according to the subframe information of each of the multiple cells, comprising:
determining a first-type priority of each of the N flexible subframes according to the subframe information of each of the multiple cells, wherein a first quantity of cells in which an ith flexible subframe is configured as a first-type flexible subframe in the multiple cells indicates a higher first-type priority of the ith flexible subframe than a second quantity of cells in which an ith flexible subframe is configured as a first-type flexible subframe in the multiple cells when the first quantity is larger than the second quantity, the first-type flexible subframe is a flexible subframe that is configured as an uplink subframe or a flexible subframe that is configured as a downlink subframe, 1?i?N, and i is an integer; and
wherein the flexible subframe resource configuration of each cell comprises that each cell uses one or more of the N flexible subframes to perform data transmission.
