Claim of US Patent No. 10,893,570

1. An apparatus comprising:at least one processor and at least one memory including a computer program code, the at least one memory and the computer program code configured to, with the at least one processor, cause the apparatus at least to:
cause transmission of a first uplink transmission for a mobile broadband communication from a first user device, the first uplink transmission having a transmission time interval comprising a plurality of subframes;
receive information from a base station during the transmission time interval, the information comprising an indication to pause during the transmission time interval transmission of the first uplink transmission for N subframes within the transmission time interval;
scheduling a transmission for a mission critical communication during said pause for a transmission time interval duration shorter than said transmission time interval;
based on the information pause, within the transmission time interval transmission of the first uplink transmission, for N subframes; and
cause, after the pause for N subframes, continued transmission of a remainder of the first uplink transmission for the mobile broadband communication.
