Claim of US Patent No. 10,716,106

1. A method of a base station comprising:transmitting, to a user equipment, a first downlink control signal including first information and first resource allocation information if one or more contiguously allocated resource blocks are allocated to the user equipment, the first information indicating a first uplink resource allocation type, the first resource allocation information indicating the one or more contiguously allocated resource blocks;
transmitting, to the user equipment, a second downlink control signal including second information and second resource allocation information if a plurality of resource block sets are allocated to the user equipment, the second information indicating a second uplink resource allocation type, the second resource allocation information indicating the plurality of resource block sets, each one of the plurality of resource block sets including consecutive resource blocks;
receiving, from the user equipment, first uplink data using the one or more contiguously allocated resource blocks if the first information indicates the first uplink resource allocation type; and
receiving, from the user equipment, second uplink data using the plurality of resource block sets if the second information indicates the second uplink resource allocation type,
wherein a first allocation unit of the one or more contiguously allocated resource blocks is smaller than a second allocation unit of each one of the plurality of resource block sets,
wherein at least one resource block is located between each two of the plurality of resource block sets, the at least one resource block being not included in the plurality of resource block sets.
