Title: METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR OFFLOAD OPERATION OF THE IDLE MODE IN A CELLULAR DEVICE
Abstract:
A dormant/idle mode operation of a plurality of cellular device(s) is offloaded using proximity radio interface to a second device having cellular capability so that a plurality of cellular devices can turn off the radio and baseband circuitry associated with the cellular capability, and save battery power. The second device to which the dormant/idle mode operation is offloaded acts like a proxy device for a plurality of cellular devices to perform at least one of the following functions on behalf of plurality of cellular devices: monitor network page, perform cell re-selection, perform tracking area update, or perform D2D transmission and reception, wherein the second device and the plurality of cellular devices are connected each other through a proximity radio interface.
