Title: Apparatus and method for acquiring synchronization in wireless communication system

Abstract: An apparatus for acquiring synchronization in a multi-channel system includes a signal reception unit for receiving information about repetition patterns of signal streams for each channel and receiving the signal streams and data from the channel, an estimated synchronization point tracking unit for determining a estimated synchronization point for the channel from a point of time where the repetition patterns are ended by tracking a period where the signal streams are repeated based on the repetition patterns, and a synchronization acquisition unit for searching, based on the estimated synchronization point related to the channel, for a point where the repetition of the signal stream is ended or a point where new signal streams are started and acquiring a synchronization point based on the point.
