Claim of US Patent No. 10,716,127

1. A method, comprising:receiving, by a processor of a user equipment (UE), a first control signal from a network node of a wireless network;
determining, by the processor based on the first control signal, a plurality of sets of timing offsets of a transmission schedule for a plurality of types of uplink (UL) transmissions;
receiving, by the processor, a second control signal from the network node;
identifying, by the processor, one of the plurality of types of UL transmissions to perform with respect to the network node based on the second control signal;
determining, by the processor based on the first and second control signals, a set of timing offsets from the plurality of sets of timing offsets of the transmission schedule for the identified type of the UL transmissions; and
performing, by the processor, a UL transmission to the network node according to the transmission schedule such that:
a first type of the UL transmission is performed with a value from a first set of timing offsets of the plurality of sets of timing offsets, and
a second type of the UL transmission is performed with a value from a second set of timing offsets of the plurality of sets of timing offsets different than the first set of timing offsets.
