Claim of US Patent No. 10,772,120

1. A method in an Access Node (AN) for signaling scheduling information to a terminal device, the method comprising:generating one or more scheduling messages for scheduling data transmissions over two or more types of radio resources available on a radio link, wherein at least one of the one or more scheduling messages is generated for scheduling at least one corresponding data transmission on dedicated radio resources for the radio link, on shared radio resources for the radio link, and on unused dedicated radio resources for the radio link's neighboring link; and
transmitting the one or more scheduling messages to the terminal device in a part of radio resources among each of the two or more types of radio resources.
