Radio link monitoring for link-budget-limited devices

A link-budget-limited wireless communication device (ue) may implement improved radio link monitoring procedures for enhancing the link-budget of the ue. The ue may monitor the radio link and may determine whether the radio link can support a lowest acceptable link quality according to a hysteresis-based comparison that uses threshold values to determine error rates associated with a physical control channel.
