Claim of US Patent No. 9,839,012

1. A method for Uplink Control Information (UCI) transmission, comprising:
selecting, by a user equipment, an uplink component carrier out of its own uplink component carrier set according to a predefined
selection rule(s) or received carrier selection indication information sent by an evolved Node B (eNB); and

transmitting, by the user equipment, the UCI to the eNB through a Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) or PUSCHs on the
selected uplink component carrier,

wherein the user equipment selects the uplink primary component carrier out of its own uplink component carrier set according
to the pre-defined selection rule(s) when at least one PUSCH is available for the user equipment on its uplink primary component
carrier, and the user equipment selects one uplink secondary component carrier having the smallest number out of uplink component
carrier having PUSCH transmission when no PUSCH is available for the user equipment on its uplink primary component carrier.
