Claim of US Patent No. 10,560,920

1. A resource configuration method for a single cell multicast control channel SC-MCCH, comprising: sending, by a base station, a system broadcast message, wherein the system broadcast message carries configuration information of a single cell multicast control channel SC-MCCH, and the configuration information comprises: a modification period (MP) of the SC-MCCH and time domain position information where the SC-MCCH is located; and sending, by the base station, frequency domain scheduling information of the SC-MCCH on a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH), wherein the frequency domain scheduling information comprises at least one of: frequency domain position information of the SC-MCCH and a modulation and coding scheme (MCS) of the SC-MCCH, wherein the configuration information further comprises at least one of: a repetition period (RP) of the SC-MCCH, configuration information of change notification information of the SC-MCCH, wherein in response to the configuration information comprising configuration information of change notification information of the SC-MCCH, the change notification information of the SC-MCCH is indicated by downlink control information DCI in the physical downlink control channel (PDCCH), and in response to the change notification information of the SC-MCCH indicated by the downlink control information DCI, the method comprises: in response to the change notification information of the SC-MCCH only indicating whether the SC-MCCH is updated, a first designated bit N in the DCI is for indicating whether the SC-MCCH is updated, where N=1 is for indicating that the SC-MCCH is updated, and N=0 is for indicating that the SC-MCCH is not updated, and N takes a value of 1 or 0.
