Claim of US Patent No. 10,602,506

1. An apparatus for a user equipment (UE) communication device to communicate in a wireless network capable of carrier aggregation (CA), the apparatus comprising:one or more memories; and
a baseband processing circuit including one or more processors accessing the one or more memories and configured to select an active secondary serving cell (SCell) for CA, and an active bandwidth part (BWP) for communications with the selected active SCell, the active SCell and active BWP selected based, at least in part, on an initialization signaling received from a remote network access station, wherein after initialization signaling the one or more processors are configured to subsequently select the same active SCell or a different active SCell from a subsequent reconfiguration message received from the remote network access station, and use an active BWP for communications with the subsequently selected active SCell from information present in the initialization signaling originally received.
