The decision to move a mobile device to dormant radio resource state is typically driven by the mobile network. For example, after a period of observed inactivity, the network may move the mobile device to dormancy. However, mobile applications may send data shortly after the mobile device is moved to dormancy which results in sub-optimal power and bandwidth use. This disclosure provides techniques that enable the mobile device to predict immediate data transmission requirements. The predictions are used by the mobile device to drive active-dormant transitions at the radio resource control (RRC) layer.
