Claim of US Patent No. 10,560,949

1. A method performed by a first communication device for enabling interference management of data transmissions from a second communication device to a third communication device in a wireless communications network, the method comprising:receiving information relating to a request for radio resources of a radio channel for a first data transmission from the second communication device to the third communication device, wherein the received information relating to a request is an acknowledgement message acknowledging radio resources of the radio channel for the first data transmission from the second communication device to the third communication device; and
transmitting an interference notification to the second communication device when the received information relating to a request for radio resources of the radio channel is determined to conflict with requested radio resources of the radio channel for a second data transmission to or from the first communication device,
wherein the interference notification indicate which radio resources of the radio resources indicated in the received information relating to a request for radio resources of the radio channel that are determined to conflict with requested radio resources of the radio channel for the second data transmission to or from the first communication device, wherein the interference notification comprises one or more of a validity time value for the requested radio resources of the radio channel for the second data transmission, an identity of the first communication device, a priority value of the second data transmission to or from the first communication device and a set of radio resources of the radio channel recommended for the first data transmission from the second communication device to the third communication device.
