Claim of US Patent No. 11,071,162


1. A method for wireless communication, comprising:receiving an indication of a set of resources allocated for downlink transmissions;
identifying a first portion of a system bandwidth allocated for broadcast or multicast data transmissions on the set of resources from one or more base stations in a single frequency network (SFN), the first portion of the system bandwidth being frequency division multiplexed with a second portion of the system bandwidth allocated for mobile broadband (MBB) transmissions on the set of resources, the first portion of the system bandwidth and the second portion of the system bandwidth having different and incompatible numerologies with subcarrier spacing of the first portion of the system bandwidth and subcarrier spacing of the second portion of the system bandwidth being non-integer multiples of one another;
receiving broadcast or multicast data on the first portion of the system bandwidth on the set of resources based at least in part on the identifying;
identifying a reassignment of a portion of the set of resources during a time interval for an other type of communications; and
receiving data associated with a portion of the broadcast or multicast data punctured by the other type of communications in at least one of a subsequent portion of the time interval or a subsequent time interval based at least in part on the reassignment.
