Claim of US Patent No. 10,512,060

1. A discontinuous reception communication synchronization method, comprising:receiving, by a terminal, whether a base station supports a capability of an extended discontinuous reception (DRX), which is broadcasted by the base station;
reporting, by the terminal, the extended DRX to a network element of a core network in response to receiving that the base station supports the capability of the extended DRX;
receiving, by the terminal and in response to the reported extended DRX, a response message from the network element of the core network, wherein the response message comprises an extended DRX support indicator that indicates that the network element of the core network supports the capability of the extended DRX;
calculating, by the terminal, a paging time by using the extended DRX when the base station and the network element of the core network both support the capability of the extended DRX; and
receiving, by the terminal, a paging message delivered by the base station at the paging time.
