Claim of US Patent No. 10,433,326

1. A method for configuring a discontinuous receive (DRX) mode in wireless communications, comprising:detecting, at a user equipment (UE), a listen-before-talk (LBT) frame received from an access point;
receiving, at the UE, a transmission burst over the LBT frame from the access point, wherein the transmission burst includes a scheduling indication in a broadcast communication portion of the transmission burst, wherein at least the broadcast communication portion of the transmission burst is masked with a group radio network temporary identifier (RNTI);
entering, at the UE and based at least in part on the scheduling indication, a DRX OFF mode to suspend communication resources during at least an off period corresponding to a portion of a time period for the transmission burst, wherein entering the DRX OFF mode is based at least in part on detecting masking of the broadcast communication portion is with a radio network temporary identifier (RNTI) for a different group; and
entering, at the UE and based at least in part on the scheduling indication, a DRX ON mode to activate the communication resources during an on period corresponding to another portion of the time period subsequent to the off period defined for the transmission burst.
