Claim of US Patent No. 10,512,039

1. A method, comprising:negotiating, by a processor of a communication apparatus with time-varying peak processing capability during active operations, with a wireless network to which the communication apparatus is communicatively connected to select one of a plurality of temporary capability states ranging between zero and peak performance of the communication apparatus; and
initiating, by the processor, a capability state change such that the communication apparatus enters the selected temporary capability state of the plurality of temporary capability states from a current temporary capability state of the plurality of temporary capability states,
wherein the selected temporary capability state determines a peak processing capability of the communication apparatus,
wherein a lifetime of the selected temporary capability state exceeds a control information period used by the wireless network to dynamically schedule data transmissions with the communication apparatus, and
wherein the data transmissions between the communication apparatus and the wireless network are constrained according to the selected temporary capability state.
