Claim of US Patent No. 11,032,830

24. An apparatus for wireless communication, comprising:a processor;
memory in electronic communication with the processor; and
instructions stored in the memory and operable, when executed by the processor, to cause the apparatus to:
identify, at a user equipment (UE), that the UE has data in a buffer to be transmitted to a base station;
determine a priority level for the data in the buffer to be transmitted to the base station based at least in part on a logical channel for the data, or a data type associated with the data, or a combination thereof, wherein the logical channel for the data or the determined priority level, or both, correspond to a numerology or a set of numerologies, wherein the numerology or the set of numerologies are associated with a subcarrier spacing in a frequency domain, or a symbol or a transmission time interval duration in a time domain;
determine that the priority level exceeds a threshold;
transmit, to the base station, a scheduling request (SR) that indicates the priority level for the data, wherein transmitting the SR is based at least in part on determining that the priority level exceeds a threshold; and
selecting, based at least in part on the determined priority level, a first set of radio resources of a plurality of sets of radio resources to be used to transmit the SR, wherein transmitting the SR comprises transmitting the SR using the identified first set of radio resources.
