2. Certain claims were found unsearchable
3. Unity of invention is lacking
This International Searching Authority found multiple inventions in this international application, as follows:
1. claims: 1, 2, 10, 11, 19, 20, 25, 26
- Independent claim 1 refers to a method for wireless communications by a network entity, comprising:    - receiving an uplink transmission from a user equipment (UE) with a Cell Radio Network Temporary Identifier (C-RNTI);    - determining the C-RNTI lacks context at the network entity; and    - signaling, in response to the determination, an indication of an immediate C-RNTI release to the UE. - Dependent claim 2 further refers that the determining comprises   determining the network entity has previously released the C-RNTI.
2. claims: 3-7, 12-16, 21-23, 27-29
Dependent claim 3 further refers to receiving signaling, from the UE, indicating the UE is capable of processing the indication of the immediate C-RNTI release.
3. claims: 8, 9, 17, 18, 24, 30
Dependent claim 8 further refers that the signaling comprises: sending a physical downlink control channel (PDCCH), encoded with the C-RNTI that lacks context in the network entity, to schedule a physical downlink shared channel (PDSCH) transmission; andsending the PDSCH transmission with a media access control (MAC) control element (CE) to indicate the immediate C-RNTI release to the UE.
1.
As all required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant, this international search report covers all searchable claims.
2.
As all searchable claims could be searched without effort justifying additional fees, this Authority did not invite payment of additional fees.
3.

4.
No required additional search fees were timely paid by the applicant. Consequently, this international search report is restricted to the invention first mentioned in the claims; it is covered by claims Nos.:
