  • Publication number: 20230023422
    Abstract: A communications device is configured to receive in a wireless communications systems using discontinuous reception. The communications device is configured to receive by determining a valid number of search spaces from which a wake-up signal, WUS, can be validly received during a power saving monitoring period. The valid number of search spaces is one or more of a plurality of search spaces of a downlink physical control channel of a wireless access interface provided by a wireless communications network for a WUS. The power saving monitoring period can be monitored by a receiver of the communications device in a low power state, the WUS being decodable with more relaxed processing requirements, and the WUS indicating that the receiver of the communications device should be powered up to a higher power state to receive signals in a discontinuous receiving on, DRX_ON, period.
