CLAIMS

What is claimed is:

1. A method for wireless communication at a base station, comprising: identifying that data is available to be transmitted to a user equipment (UE) that is operating in a discontinuous reception (DRX) mode;

transmitting, based at least in part on identifying that the data is available to be transmitted to the UE, a wakeup message to the UE using a first transmit beam; and

initiating a beam management procedure based at least in part on identifying that the data is available to be transmitted to the UE, to identify a second transmit beam for the base station to use to transmit the available data to the UE.

2. The method of claim 1, wherein the first transmit beam comprises a pseudo-omni transmit beam and the second transmit beam comprises a narrower beam width than the first transmit beam.

3. The method of claim 1, wherein the first transmit beam and the second transmit beam are different transmit beams.

4. The method of claim 1, wherein the wakeup message comprises an indication that the data is available to be transmitted to the UE, and the beam management procedure is initiated based on the data being available.

5. The method of claim 1, wherein the beam management procedure comprises transmitting a set of beam management transmissions to the UE using a set of transmit beams, each transmit beam of the set of transmit beams being transmitted in a different direction and having a narrower beam width than the first transmit beam.

6. The method of claim 1, wherein the wakeup message comprises a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) message having a lower code rate than a different UE-specific PDCCH message.

7. The method of claim 1, wherein transmitting the wakeup message using the first transmit beam comprises:

8. The method of claim 7, further comprising:

transmitting, based at least in part on the beam recovery message, the identified data to the UE using a transmit beam identified in the beam recovery message, the transmit beam comprising at least one transmit beam from a set of transmit beams transmitted to the UE in different directions during the beam management procedure, the transmit beam having a narrower beam width than the first transmit beam.

9. The method of claim 1, further comprising:

configuring the wakeup message to be received by the UE at an interference level higher than a different UE-specific control message received at the UE.

10. The method of claim 1, further comprising:

receiving, based at least in part on the beam management procedure, a beam recovery message from the UE.

11. The method of claim 1, further comprising:

identifying that a response to the transmitted wakeup message has not been received from the UE; and

retransmitting, based at least in part on the identification, the wakeup message to the UE using the first transmit beam.

12. The method of claim 1, further comprising:

identifying that a response to the transmitted wakeup message has not been received from the UE; and

transmitting, based at least in part on the identification, a command to the UE to terminate an active state.

13. The method of claim 1, further comprising:

encoding the wakeup message using a UE identifier.

14. The method of claim 13, wherein the UE identifier comprises at least a portion of a cell radio network temporary identifier (C-RNTI).

15. The method of claim 1, wherein the wakeup message is configured with a predetermined downlink control information (DCI) format, the predetermined DCI format indicating that the data is available to be transmitted to the UE.

16. The method of claim 15, wherein the predetermined DCI format indicates a configuration for a plurality of beam management transmissions to the UE using a set of transmit beams during the beam management procedure, each transmit beam of the set of transmit beams being transmitted in a different direction and having a narrower beam width than the first transmit beam.

17. The method of claim 16, wherein the configuration for the set of beam management transmissions comprises an indication of resources to be used for the set of beam management transmissions.

18. The method of claim 15, wherein the DCI format comprises at least one bit indicating that the data is available to be transmitted to the UE and at least one bit indicating a configuration for a beam management procedure.

19. The method of claim 1, wherein the first transmit beam comprises a beamformed waveform having a predetermined beam width.

20. The method of claim 1, wherein the beam management transmission comprises a channel state information reference signal (CSI-RS), or a synchronization signal (SS), or a combination thereof.

21. The method of claim 1, wherein the wakeup message is transmitted in a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) message using cyclic redundancy check (CRC) bits scrambled using an identifier of the UE.

22. A method for wireless communication at a user equipment (UE), comprising:

receiving, while operating in a discontinuous reception (DRX) mode, a wakeup message from a base station, the wakeup message transmitted using a first transmit beam and indicating that data is available to be transmitted to the UE;

receiving, based at least in part on the indication that data is available to be transmitted to the UE, a second set of signals during a beam management procedure, wherein the second set of signals are transmitted using a second set of transmit beams; and

transmitting, based at least in part on the beam management procedure, a signal to the base station.

23. The method of claim 22, wherein the first transmit beam comprises a pseudo-omni transmit beam and the second set of transmit beams comprise transmit beams having a narrower beam width than the first transmit beam.

24. The method of claim 22, wherein the wakeup message is received in a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) message using cyclic redundancy check (CRC) bits scrambled using an identifier of the UE .

25. The method of claim 22, wherein the signal transmitted to the base station comprises a beam recovery signal.

26. The method of claim 22, wherein the signal transmitted to the base station comprises an indication of a beam index, the beam index based at least in part on the beam management procedure.

27. The method of claim 22, further comprising:

receiving, while operating in the DRX mode, a subsequent wakeup message from the base station;

maintaining an on duration of the DRX mode when the subsequent wakeup message indicates that data is available to be transmitted to the UE; and

transitioning to a sleep state of the DRX mode when the subsequent wakeup message does not indicate that data is available to be transmitted to the UE.

28. The method of claim 22, wherein the wakeup message comprises a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH) message.

29. An apparatus for wireless communication at a base station, comprising: means for identifying that data is available to be transmitted to a user equipment (UE) that is operating in a discontinuous reception (DRX) mode;

means for transmitting, based at least in part on identifying that the data is available to be transmitted to the UE, a wakeup message to the UE using a first transmit beam; and
