Claim of US Patent No. 11,115,983


1. A method for wireless communication, comprising:configuring a synchronization slot associated with a plurality of synchronization blocks;
configuring the plurality of synchronization blocks based at least in part on frequency-division multiplexing (FDM);
configuring a transmission of each synchronization block of the plurality of synchronization blocks based at least in part on the configured synchronization slot;
assigning a synchronization region to a first frequency portion associated with a transmission beam of each synchronization block;
assigning at least one of a data region or a control region to a second frequency portion associated with the transmission beam of each synchronization block;
assigning at least one of the data region or the control region to each synchronization block of the plurality of synchronization blocks based at least in part on configuring the plurality of synchronization blocks, wherein the data region or the control region spans across a duration of the synchronization region;
transmitting, using a first transmission beam during a first portion of the synchronization slot, a synchronization signal using the synchronization region of a first synchronization block associated with the first transmission beam; and
transmitting, using the first transmission beam during the first portion of the synchronization slot, at least one of a data signal using the data region of the first synchronization block associated with the first transmission beam or control information using the control region of the first synchronization block associated with the first transmission beam to a wireless node.
