Patent Number: 8,818,428

Title: Apparatus and method for employing a page cycle learning mode

Abstract: Apparatus and methods are disclosed to provide for a multi-SIM wireless user equipment configured for discontinuous reception (DRX) utilizing two or more subscriptions, which may be in different radio access technologies. The user equipment is configured to originate a call using one subscription, to the same user equipment over another subscription. During the duration of a blanking window, statistics corresponding to repetitions of incoming page messages are recorded and analyzed to determine repetition behavior by the network of page messages. In this way, monitoring of the paging channel can be done during fewer than all DRX cycles, combating possible collisions between DRX cycles on different radio access technologies, and enabling reduced power consumption. Other aspects, embodiments, and features are also claimed and described.
