Claim of US Patent No. 10,925,101

1. A user equipment (UE), comprising:a memory configured to store program instructions; and
a processor, upon executing the program instructions, configured to:
receive a plurality of synchronization signal blocks (SSBs) that are transmitted by a cell, having corresponding new radio (NR) primary synchronization signals (PSSs) and NR secondary synchronization signals (SSSs);
detect, based on the received plurality of SSBs and within an NR-PSS and NR-SSS detection delay, one or more NR-PSS identifications (IDs) and NR-SSS IDs corresponding to the cell;
detect, based on the received plurality of SSBs and within an SSB-time-index detection delay, one or more SSB time indexes corresponding to the received plurality of SSBs;
measure, based on the received plurality of SSBs and within a measurement delay, a synchronization signal (SS) reference signal received power (SS-RSRP); and
identify, based on the detected one or more NR-PSS IDs and NR-SSS IDs, and the detected one or more SSB time indexes, an NR cell ID associated with the measured SS-RSRP.
