Claim of US Patent No. 10,512,076

1. A method for transmitting a signal by a base station (BS) in a beam forming-based communication system, the method comprising:transmitting a first transmission beam including a first reference signal based on a first transmission period in a first target region; and
transmitting a second transmission beam including a second reference signal based on a second transmission period in a second target region, the second transmission period includes a time interval different from the first transmission period,
wherein the first transmission period is shorter than the second transmission period in case that a size of the first target region of the first transmission beam is larger than a size of the second target region of the second transmission beam,
wherein a beam width of the first transmission beam is narrower than a beam width of the second transmission beam in case that the size of the first target region of the first transmission beam is larger than the size of the second target region of the second transmission beam,
wherein the size of the first target region is determined based on a first elevation angle and a first azimuth of the base station for the first transmission beam, and
wherein the size of the second target region is determined based on a second elevation angle and a second azimuth of the base station for the second transmission beam.
