Claim of US Patent No. 11,071,073


1. A method for wireless communications by a wireless node comprising:determining, at the wireless node, an operation mode of a second wireless node, the operation mode being one of a plurality of operation modes comprising one or more of an initial acquisition in standalone mode, an initial acquisition in non-standalone mode, an idle mode, or a connected mode;
determining, at the wireless node, a transmission configuration of a plurality of transmission configurations of at least one of one or more synchronization channels or one or more synchronization signals based on the determined operation mode, the transmission configuration including a configuration of time and frequency resources used for the transmission of the one or more synchronization channels or the one or more synchronization signals, wherein different transmission configurations of the plurality of transmission configurations are determined for different operations modes of the plurality of operation modes, and wherein the different transmission configurations correspond to different time and frequency resources for communicating with the second wireless node: and
transmitting, from the wireless node to the second wireless node, the one or more synchronization channels or the one or more synchronization signals based on the determined transmission configuration;
wherein a third wireless node in communication with the wireless node at a same time as the second wireless node is in a second operation mode different than the operation mode of the second wireless node.
