The 4G standard Long Term Evolution (LTE) utilizes discontinuous reception (DRX) to extend the user equipments battery lifetime. DRX permits an idle UE to power off the radio receiver for two predefined sleep period and then wake up to receive the next paging message. Two major basic power saving models proposed to data are the 3GPP ETSI model and industrial DRX model proposed by Nokia. While previous studies have investigated power saving with the 3GPP ETSI models, the industrial DRX model has not been considered for analytical studies to date. Thus, there is a need to optimize the DRX parameters in the industrial model so as to maximize power saving without incurring network reentry and packet delays. In this paper, we take an overview of various static DRX cycles of the LTE/LTE-Advanced power saving mechanisms by modelling the system with bursty packet data traffic using a semi-Markov process. Using this analytical model, we will show the tradeoff relationship between the power saving and wake-up delay performance in the industrial model.
