Claim of US Patent No. 9,591,500

1. A method for measurement reporting in a Carrier Aggregation (CA) system, comprising steps of:
receiving, by a User Equipment (UE), a message from a network side device;
determining, by the UE, whether one or more of a plurality of component carriers and/or one or more of a plurality of measurement
objects meet a condition of triggering measurement reporting based on the message; and

reporting, by the UE, measurement information of at least one of the plurality of component carriers and/or measurement information
of at least one of the plurality of the measurement object to the network side device by one measurement reporting message
if determining that the condition is met,

wherein the step of reporting, by the UE, measurement information of at least one of the plurality of component carriers and/or
measurement information of at least one of the plurality of the measurement objects to the network side device by one measurement
reporting message comprises steps of:

reporting, by the UE, statistical measurement quantity or instantaneous measurement quantity of component carriers in the
plurality of component carriers and/or statistical measurement quantity or instantaneous measurement quantity of frequencies
indicated by the measurement objects in the plurality of measurement objects to the network side device; and reporting, by
the UE, statistical measurement quantity or instantaneous measurement quantity of the other component carriers in the plurality
of component carriers and/or statistical measurement quantity or instantaneous measurement quantity of frequencies indicated
by the other measurement objects in the plurality of measurement objects to the network side device, wherein the component
carriers and the measurement objects meet the condition of triggering the measurement reporting; or

reporting, by the UE, measurement information of component carriers in the plurality of component carriers and/or measurement
information of frequencies indicated by the measurement objects in the plurality of measurement objects to the network side
device; and reporting, by the UE, measurement information of one or more of the other component carriers in the plurality
of component carriers and/or measurement information of frequencies indicated by one or more of other measurement objects
in the plurality of measurement objects to the network side device, wherein the components carriers and the measurement objects
meet the condition of triggering the measurement reporting, and the one or more of the other component carriers and/or the
one or more of the other measurement objects satisfy a pre-defined strategy.
