Title: Downlink control signalling for downlink MIMO

Abstract: A method of downlink control signalling for downlink multiple input/multiple output (MIMO) operation between a Base Transceiver Station (BTS) and User Equipment (UE) includes the following steps. Maintaining one or more mapping tables at a network location accessible by the UE, the mapping tables including first UE signalling data. Transmitting a message index to the UE to enable relevant first UE signalling data to be read by the UE. Transmitting second UE signalling data to the UE. At the UE, using the first and second UE signalling data to derive UE control data.
