1. An apparatus, comprising:
a memory to store program code;
a processor in communication with the memory; and
wherein the program code, when executed by the processor, causes the apparatus to:
obtain configuration information for determining a transmit power used for transmitting a signal at each coverage enhancement level,
determine, according to the configuration information, a transmit power used for transmitting the signal at a coverage enhancement level currently used by the apparatus,
when the configuration information comprises a maximum quantity of signal transmitting attempts corresponding to each coverage enhancement level, determine, from the configuration information, a maximum quantity of signal transmitting attempts at the coverage enhancement level currently used by the apparatus, and
transmit the signal using the determined transmit power.
