1. A method for wireless communication, the method comprising:
operating, at a user equipment (UE), in a discontinuous reception (DRX) mode of operation; and
evaluating, by the UE, a link quality between the UE and a base station (BS) at least once every time period, wherein the time period is determined based on (i) a length of a DRX cycle of the UE operating in the DRX mode of operation and (ii) a reference signal (RS) period that indicates a periodicity of an RS transmission.
