1. A user equipment comprising:
at least one processor; and
at least one memory including program instructions that, when executed by the at least one processor, cause the user equipment at least to perform:
receiving, from a base station, a configuration for a resource space comprising a plurality of time-frequency resources, wherein the resource space comprises a first portion for a first type of signaling and a second portion for a second type of signaling, wherein the first type of signaling comprises persistent acknowledgement signaling and scheduling request signaling, and the second type of signaling comprises dynamic acknowledgement signaling, and the first type of signaling and the second type of signaling share a same channelization structure;
receiving, from the base station, a number of physical resource blocks indicating physical uplink control channel (PUCCH) format 1/1a/1b resources reserved for the persistent acknowledgment signaling and scheduling request signaling based at least in part on the configuration of the resource space, wherein the number of physical resource blocks is signaled explicitly to the user equipment via higher layer signaling or radio resource control signaling; and
determining an allocation of resources for the second portion based at least in part on the number of physical resource blocks.
