Claim of US Patent No. 10,485,011

1. A method of scheduling and/or muting radio resources in a wireless communication system, said wireless communication system comprising a plurality of network nodes and a plurality of user nodes, the method comprising:performing measurements, by a user node among the plurality of user nodes, received signal strength of radio signals transmitted from the plurality of network nodes so as to obtain received signal quality and/or interference associated with the plurality of network nodes;
arranging, by said user node, the received signal quality and/or interference associated with the plurality of network nodes in accordance with a first order with respect to a radio signal criterion; and
instead of sending the measurements to a first network node among the plurality of network nodes, signalling, by said user node, an order indicator to indicate the first order in a first message to the first network node, to cause the first network node coordinate scheduling and/or muting of radio resources for the first network node based on a combination of the order indicator indicating the first order, and a second order, by the first network node, of scheduling and/or the muting of radio resources,
wherein the first message to cause the first network node to coordinate the scheduling and/or the muting of radio resources further includes identification information arranged in accordance with the first order from a group of identification information including:
a list of a plurality of network nodes in the first order being a descending or ascending order with respect to the radio signal criterion; and
an indication of interference level in the first order associated in a list of a plurality of transmission beam(s) and/or a plurality of network nodes.
