Claim of US Patent No. 10,772,146

1. A multi-connectivity communication method, comprising:receiving, by a terminal, via different logical channels of an air interface between a secondary base station and the terminal, radio resource control (RRC) messages from the secondary base station, wherein the RRC messages comprise a first RRC message generated by an RRC entity of a master base station and a second RRC message generated by an RRC entity of the secondary base station; and
identifying, by the terminal, based on the different logical channels, the first RRC message and the second RRC message, the master base station and the secondary base station using different radio access technologies; and further comprising:
receiving, by the terminal, configuration information of a first signaling radio bearer (SRB) from the secondary base station;
receiving, by the terminal, configuration information of a second SRB from the secondary base station, wherein receiving the RRC messages from the secondary base station comprises:
receiving the first RRC message from the secondary base station using the first SRB; and
receiving the second RRC message from the secondary base station using the second SRB.
