DRX – Discontinuous Reception

Discontinuous reception is employed in cellular systems to prolong the mobile’s battery life. The mobile station listens only to the paging channels within its DRX group. Moreover the network will only page the mobile in that group of paging channels. Thus the mobile does not have to continuously monitor the paging channels.
