Claim of US Patent No. 10,772,093

1. An electronic device comprising:circuitry configured to
perform wireless communication via one or more frequency channels in a secondary system, the one or more frequency channels being determined to be utilized in the secondary system by a primary system; and
receive one or more link direction configurations for the secondary system among a plurality of candidates, each of the plurality of candidates indicating a link direction in time domain units, wherein
the link direction configuration is applied to the wireless communication in the secondary system, each of the one or more link direction configurations being applied to each of the one or more frequency channels,
the plurality of candidates includes at least one of a first link direction configuration and a second link direction configuration, the first link direction configuration including more time domain units dedicated to a downlink than time domain units dedicated to an uplink, the second link direction configuration including more time domain units dedicated to an uplink than time domain units dedicated to a downlink, and
in a case that the second link direction is applied to each of the one more frequency channels, which are separated in frequency from one or more frequency channels of the primary system, additional resources for the uplink can be secured resulting in increased throughput of the uplink.
