Claim of US Patent No. 9,332,533

1. An acknowledgement (ACK)/negative acknowledgement (NACK)/scheduling request (SR) resource mapping method, comprising:
allocating, by a base station in a system comprising a terminal utilizing a first type protocol and a terminal utilizing a
second type protocol, ACK/NACK/SR resources corresponding to the terminal utilizing the second type protocol in an area outside
of an ACK/NACK/SR resource area reserved for the terminal utilizing the first type protocol; and

receiving, by the base station, feedback information of the terminal utilizing the second type protocol on the ACK/NACK/SR
resources corresponding to the terminal utilizing the second type protocol;

wherein the allocating the ACK/NACK/ISR resources corresponding to the terminal utilizing the second type protocol in the
area outside of the ACK/NACK/SR resource area reserved for the terminal utilizing the first type protocol comprises:

determining by the base station the ACK/NACK/SR resources corresponding to the terminal utilizing he second type protocol
by itself; or

determining, by the base station, the ACK/NACK/SR resources corresponding to the terminal utilizing the second type protocol
according to a predefined rule.
