1. An apparatus, comprising:a processor that:
determines a first carrier from a plurality of carriers; and
determines a set of physical resource blocks within the first carrier for a first device to transmit first hybrid automatic repeat request acknowledgement feedback information;
a transmitter that:
transmits, to the first device, first signaling indicating a first control channel for the first device to transmit the first hybrid automatic repeat request acknowledgement feedback information; and
transmits, to a second device, second signaling indicating a second control channel for the second device to transmit second hybrid automatic repeat request acknowledgement feedback information, wherein the first control channel and the second control channel are determined based at least in part on the set of physical resource blocks and the first carrier; and
a receiver that:
receives the first hybrid automatic repeat request acknowledgement feedback information from the first device on the first control channel; and
receives the second hybrid automatic repeat request acknowledgement feedback information from the second device on the second control channel, wherein the first control channel and the second control channel are received concurrently on the first carrier.
