Claim of US Patent No. 10,716,079

1. A method comprising:receiving a plurality of synchronization signal blocks on a first wideband carrier, wherein each synchronization signal block of the plurality of synchronization signal blocks comprises at least one synchronization signal and a physical broadcast channel;
detecting at least one synchronization signal block of the plurality of synchronization signal blocks;
determining at least one synchronization signal frequency associated with the at least one detected synchronization signal block;
selecting a first synchronization signal block of the at least one detected synchronization signal block and a first synchronization signal frequency of the at least one synchronization signal frequency, wherein the first synchronization signal block is associated with the first synchronization signal frequency;
decoding a first physical broadcast channel of the first synchronization signal block;
determining whether to reselect the first synchronization signal block based on first system information obtained from decoding the first physical broadcast channel; and
in response to determining to reselect the first synchronization signal block, reselecting a second synchronization signal block of the at least one detected synchronization signal block and a second synchronization signal frequency of the at least one synchronization signal frequency, wherein the second synchronization signal block is associated with the second synchronization signal frequency and is different from the first synchronization signal block.
