Title: CELL SWITCHING METHOD AND TERMINAL DEVICE
Abstract:
Provided in an embodiment of the present invention are a cell switching method and a terminal device. The terminal device currently resides in a first cell, and is currently located within a coverage of a second cell. The method comprises: if it is determined that no data service transmission is conducted within a preset duration, a terminal device determining whether an RRC connection is released; and if it is determined that the RRC connection is not released, the terminal device switching from the first cell to the second cell. The cell switching method and the terminal device of the present invention can reduce power consumption of a terminal device, thereby increasing battery run-time of the terminal device.
