1. A method for wireless communications performed by a user equipment (UE), comprising:receiving a configuration indicating one or more triggers for transmitting on an uplink access channel, wherein the one or more triggers comprise a first indication of mobility of the UE;
determining, based at least in part on detection of one of the one or more triggers, to transmit on the uplink access channel;
transmitting a first signal on the uplink access channel;
receiving, in response to the transmission of the first signal on the uplink access channel, a paging notification;
receiving a cell identifier (ID) subsequent to receiving the paging notification to enable the UE to connect to a cell identified by the cell ID in response to the paging notification; and
exchanging signaling with the cell identified by the cell ID.
