Claim of US Patent No. 11,032,822

1. An apparatus for wireless communication, comprising:a memory; and
at least one processor coupled to the memory and configured to:
determine a set of active beam pairs including at least a first beam pair and a second beam pair, the set of active beam pairs being based on a beamforming configuration by a base station;
select the first beam pair;
predict that the first beam pair is blocked, the prediction based on an expiration of a timer; and
sweep through the set of active beam pairs based on predicting that the first beam pair is blocked, the sweep through the set of active beam pairs being based on information received from the base station that indicates at least one of a timing period or an offset associated with time-domain separation between respective beams included in the set of active beam pairs.
