}

10.5.1.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 24.301, clauses 5.3.3.1, 5.6.1.1, 5.6.1.2, 5.6.1.4, 6.2.2, 6.4.1.3, 6.4.2.3, 6.5.1.2 and Annex D, and TS 25.331 clause 5.3.3.3.

[TS 24.301 clause 5.3.1.1]

When the UE is in EMM-IDLE mode and needs to transmit an initial NAS message, the UE shall request the lower layer to establish a RRC connection. In this request to the lower layer the NAS shall provide to the lower layer the RRC establishment cause and the call type as specified in annex D of this specification.

[TS 24.301 clause 5.6.1.1]

The UE shall invoke the service request procedure when:

c) the UE, in EMM-IDLE mode, has uplink signalling pending;

[TS 24.301 clause 5.6.1.2]

If the UE has pending uplink data or uplink signalling in EMM-IDLE mode to be transmitted or it responds to paging with CN domain indicator set to "PS", the UE initiates the service request procedure by sending a SERVICE REQUEST message to the MME, starts the timer T3417, and enters the state EMM-SERVICE-REQUEST-INITIATED.

[TS 24.301 clause 5.6.1.4]

For cases a, b, c and h in subclause 5.6.1.1, the UE shall treat the indication from the lower layers that the user plane radio bearer is set up as successful completion of the procedure. The UE shall stop the timer T3417 and enter the state EMM-REGISTERED.

Upon successful completion of the procedure, the UE shall stop the timer T3417 and enter the state EMM-REGISTERED.

Service Request

If a SERVICE REQUEST is to request user plane radio resources, the RRC establishment cause shall be set to MO data. (See Note1)

"originating calls"

If a SERVICE REQUEST is to request resources for UL signalling, the RRC establishment cause shall be set to MO data. (See Note 1)

"originating calls"

If a SERVICE REQUEST is a response to paging where the CN domain indicator is set to "PS", the RRC establishment cause shall be set to MT access. (See Note 1)

"terminating calls"

If an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST has service type set to "mobile originating CS fallback or 1xCS fallback", the RRC establishment cause shall be set to MO data. (See Note1).

"originating calls"

If an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST has service type set to "mobile terminating CS fallback or 1xCS fallback", the RRC establishment cause shall be set to MT access. (See Note1).

"terminating calls"

If an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST has service type set to "mobile originating CS fallback emergency call or 1xCS fallback emergency call", the RRC establishment cause shall be set to Emergency call.
(See Note1).

"emergency calls"

Note 1: For these NAS procedures initiated by UEs of access class 12, 13 or 14 in their home country, the RRC establishment cause will be set to "High priority access AC 11 – 15". For this purpose the home country is defined as the country of the MCC part of the IMSI, see 3GPP TS 22.011 [1A].

For these NAS procedures initiated by UE of access class 11 or 15 in their HPLMN (if the EHPLMN list is not present or is empty) or EHPLMN (if the EHPLMN list is present), the RRC establishment cause will be set to "High priority access AC 11 – 15".

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.3.3]

The UE shall set the contents of RRCConnectionRequest message as follows:

1> set the ue-Identity as follows:

2> if upper layers provide an S-TMSI:

3> set the ue-Identity to the value received from upper layers;

2> else:

3> draw a random value in the range 0 .. 240-1 and set the ue-Identity to this value;

NOTE 1: Upper layers provide the S-TMSI if the UE is registered in the TA of the current cell.

1> set the establishmentCause in accordance with the information received from upper layers;

The UE shall submit the RRCConnectionRequest message to lower layers for transmission.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.2.2]

The UE shall set the PDN type IE in the PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message, based on its IP stack configuration as follows:

a) A UE, which is IPv6 and IPv4 capable and

– has not been allocated an IP address for this APN, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv4v6.

– has been allocated an IPv4 address for this APN and received the ESM cause #52 "single address bearers only allowed", and is requesting an IPv6 address, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv6.

– has been allocated an IPv6 address for this APN and received the ESM cause #52 "single address bearers only allowed", and is requesting an IPv4 address, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv4.

b) A UE, which is only IPv4 capable, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv4.

c) A UE, which is only IPv6 capable, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv6.

d) When the IP version capability of the UE is unknown in the UE (as in the case when the MT and TE are separated and the capability of the TE is not known in the MT), the UE shall set the PDN type IE to IPv4v6.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.4.1.3]

Upon receipt of the ACTIVATE DEFAULT EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message, the UE shall send an ACTIVATE DEFAULT EPS BEARER CONTEXT ACCEPT message and enter the state BEARER CONTEXT ACTIVE. When the default bearer is activated as part of the attach procedure, the UE shall send the ACTIVATE DEFAULT EPS BEARER CONTEXT ACCEPT message together with ATTACH COMPLETE message. When the default bearer is activated as the response to the stand-alone PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message, the UE shall send the ACTIVATE DEFAULT EPS BEARER CONTEXT ACCEPT message alone.

The UE checks the PTI in the ACTIVATE DEFAULT EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message to identify the UE requested PDN connectivity procedure to which the default bearer context activation is related (see subclause 6.5.1).

[TS 24.301, clause 6.4.2.3]

Upon receipt of the ACTIVATE DEDICATED EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message, the UE shall first check the received TFT before taking it into use. Then the UE shall send an ACTIVATE DEDICATED EPS BEARER CONTEXT ACCEPT message and enter the state BEARER CONTEXT ACTIVE. The ACTIVATE DEDICATED EPS BEARER CONTEXT ACCEPT message shall include the EPS bearer identity.

The linked EPS bearer identity included in the ACTIVATE DEDICATED EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message indicates to the UE to which default bearer, IP address and PDN the dedicated bearer is linked.

If the PTI is included in the ACTIVATE DEDICATED EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message, the UE uses the PTI to identify the UE requested bearer resource allocation procedure or the UE requested bearer resource modification procedure to which the dedicated bearer context activation is related.

If the PTI is included in the ACTIVATE DEDICATED EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message and the PTI is associated to a UE requested bearer resource allocation procedure or a UE requested bearer resource modification procedure, the UE shall release the traffic flow aggregate description associated to the PTI value provided.

The UE shall use the received TFT to apply mapping of uplink traffic flows to the radio bearer if the TFT contains packet filters for the uplink direction.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.5.1.2]

In order to request connectivity to a PDN using the default APN, the UE includes the access point name IE in the PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message or, when applicable, in the ESM INFORMATION RESPONSE message, according to the following conditions:

– if use of a PDN using the default APN requires PAP/CHAP, then the UE should include the access point name IE; and

– in all other conditions, the UE need not include the access point name IE.

In order to request connectivity to an additional PDN, the UE shall send a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message including a requested APN to the MME, start timer T3482 and enter the state PROCEDURE TRANSACTION PENDING (see example in figure 6.5.1.2.1). In the PDN type information element the UE shall indicate the IP version capability of the IP stack associated with the UE as specified in subclause 6.4.1

The UE shall set the request type to "initial request" when the UE is establishing connectivity to a PDN for the first time, i.e. when it is an initial attach to that PDN. The UE shall set the request type to "handover" when the connectivity to a PDN is established upon handover from a non-3GPP access network and the UE was connected to that PDN before the handover to the 3GPP access network.

10.5.1a UE requested PDN connectivity accepted / Dual priority / T3396 override

10.5.1a.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { the UE configured for low priority NAS signalling and low priority NAS signalling override and the UE has sent a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message indicating low NAS signalling priority }

ensure that {

when { the UE receives PDN CONNECTIVITY REJECT message with timer T3396 and ESM cause value #26 "insufficient resources" }

then { if higher layers in the UE request the activation of such a connection/context, the UE sends a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message with the low priority indicator set to "MS is not configured for NAS signalling low priority" }

}

10.5.1a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 24.301, clauses 4.2A and 6.5.5.

[TS 24.301, clause 4.2A]

A UE configured for NAS signalling low priority indicates this by including the Device properties IE in the appropriate NAS message and setting the low priority indicator to "MS is configured for NAS signalling low priority", except for the following cases in which the UE shall set the low priority indicator to "MS is not configured for NAS signalling low priority":

– the UE is performing an attach for emergency bearer services;

– the UE has a PDN connection for emergency bearer services established and is performing EPS mobility management procedures, or is establishing a PDN connection for emergency bearer services;

– the UE is accessing the network with access class 11 – 15; or

– the UE is responding to paging.

The network may use the NAS signalling low priority indication for NAS level mobility management congestion control and APN based congestion control.

If the NAS signalling low priority indication is provided in a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message, the MME stores the NAS signalling low priority indication within the default EPS bearer context activated due to the PDN connectivity request procedure.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.5.5]

If timer T3396 is running for a specific APN, because a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST, BEARER RESOURCE MODIFICATION REQUEST or BEARER RESOURCE ALLOCATION REQUEST message containing the low priority indicator set to "MS is configured for NAS signalling low priority" was rejected with timer T3396 and ESM cause value #26 "insufficient resources", upon request of the upper layers the UE can:

– send a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message to the same APN, with low priority indicator set to "MS is not configured for NAS signalling low priority"; or,

– send a BEARER RESOURCE MODIFICATION REQUEST or BEARER RESOURCE ALLOCATION REQUEST message, with low priority indicator set to "MS is not configured for NAS signalling low priority", for a PDN connection established with low priority indicator set to "MS is not configured for NAS signalling low priority" exists.

If timer T3396 is running, because a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST without APN sent together an ATTACH REQUEST message containing the low priority indicator set to "MS is configured for NAS signalling low priority" was rejected with timer T3396 and ESM cause value #26 "insufficient resources", upon request of the upper layers the UE can initiate a new attach procedure with low priority indicator set to "MS is not configured for NAS signalling low priority".

For requests with low priority indicator set to "MS is configured for NAS signalling low priority", the UE shall follow the procedures specified in subclause 6.5.1.4.

with { the UE has sent a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message to an additional PDN }

ensure that {

when { the UE receives an PDN CONNECTIVITY REJECT message with PTI matching the PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message and including a ESM cause value }

then { the UE enters the state PROCEDURE TRANSACTION INACTIVE }

}

10.5.3.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 24.301, clauses 6.2.2, 6.4.1.3, 6.4.2.3 and 6.5.1.2.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.2.2]

The UE shall set the PDN type IE in the PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message, based on its IP stack configuration as follows:

a) A UE, which is IPv6 and IPv4 capable and

– has not been allocated an IP address for this APN, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv4v6.

– has been allocated an IPv4 address for this APN and received the ESM cause #52 "single address bearers only allowed", and is requesting an IPv6 address, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv6.

– has been allocated an IPv6 address for this APN and received the ESM cause #52 "single address bearers only allowed", and is requesting an IPv4 address, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv4.

b) A UE, which is only IPv4 capable, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv4.

c) A UE, which is only IPv6 capable, shall set the PDN type IE to IPv6.

d) When the IP version capability of the UE is unknown in the UE (as in the case when the MT and TE are separated and the capability of the TE is not known in the MT), the UE shall set the PDN type IE to IPv4v6.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.5.1.2]

In order to request connectivity to an additional PDN, the UE shall send a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message including a requested APN to the MME, start timer T3482 and enter the state PROCEDURE TRANSACTION PENDING (see example in figure 6.5.1.2.1). In the PDN type information element the UE shall indicate the IP version capability of the IP stack associated with the UE as specified in subclause 6.4.1

The UE shall set the request type to "initial request" when the UE is establishing connectivity to a PDN for the first time, i.e. when it is an initial attach to that PDN. The UE shall set the request type to "handover" when the connectivity to a PDN is established upon handover from a non-3GPP access network and the UE was connected to that PDN before the handover to the 3GPP access network.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.5.1.4]

Upon receipt of the PDN CONNECTIVITY REJECT message, the UE shall stop timer T3482 and enter the state PROCEDURE TRANSACTION INACTIVE.

The PDN CONNECTIVITY REJECT message contains an ESM cause IE that typically indicates one of the following ESM cause values:

#8: operator determined barring;

#26: insufficient resources;

#27: missing or unknown APN;

#28: unknown PDN type;

#29: user authentication failed;

#30: request rejected by Serving GW or PDN GW;

#31: request rejected, unspecified;

#32: service option not supported;

#33: requested service option not subscribed;

#34: service option temporarily out of order;

#35: PTI already in use;

#38: network failure;

#50: PDN type IPv4 only allowed;

#51: PDN type IPv6 only allowed;

#53: ESM information not received;

#54: PDN connection does not exist;

#55: multiple PDN connections for a given APN not allowed;

#95 – 111: protocol errors;

#112: APN restriction value incompatible with active EPS bearer context.

10.5.4 UE requested PDN connectivity not accepted / Network reject with Extended Wait Timer

10.5.4.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { the UE has sent a EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message indicating low NAS signalling priority }

ensure that {

when { the UE receives RRC reject with Extended wait timer }

then { the UE activates timer T3346 with the value of the Extended wait time and, if higher layers in the UE request the activation of such a connection/context afterwards, the UE does not initiate any signalling before the timer has expired }

}

(2)

with { UE is in EMM-REGISTERED mode }

ensure that {

when { UE is triggered to request connectivity to an additional PDN after timer T3346 has elapsed }

then { the UE transmits a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message with the request type set to "initial request" and including the name of the additional APN }

}

10.5.4.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 24.301, clauses 4.2A, 5.6.1.2, 5.6.1.6 and 6.5.1.2.

[TS 24.301, clause 4.2A]

A UE configured for NAS signalling low priority indicates this by including the Device properties IE in the appropriate NAS message and setting the low priority indicator to "MS is configured for NAS signalling low priority", except for the following cases in which the UE shall set the low priority indicator to "MS is not configured for NAS signalling low priority":

– the UE is performing an attach for emergency bearer services;

– the UE has a PDN connection for emergency bearer services established and is performing EPS mobility management procedures, or is establishing a PDN connection for emergency bearer services;

– the UE is accessing the network with access class 11 – 15; or

– the UE is responding to paging.

The network may use the NAS signalling low priority indication for NAS level mobility management congestion control and APN based congestion control.

If the NAS signalling low priority indication is provided in a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message, the MME stores the NAS signalling low priority indication within the default EPS bearer context activated due to the PDN connectivity request procedure.

[TS 24.301, clause 5.6.1.2]

For cases a, b, c, h and k, if the UE is configured for NAS signalling low priority, and the last received ATTACH ACCEPT message or TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT message from the network indicated that the network supports use of EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST for packet services, the UE shall send an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message with service type set to "packet services via S1". If the last received ATTACH ACCEPT message or TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT message from the network did not indicate that the network supports use of EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST for packet services, the UE shall instead send a SERVICE REQUEST message. After sending the SERVICE REQUEST message or EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message with service type set to "packet services via S1", the UE shall start T3417 and enter the state EMM-SERVICE-REQUEST-INITIATED.

[TS 24.301, clause 5.6.1.6]

l) "Extended wait time" from the lower layers

The UE shall abort the service request procedure, enter state EMM-REGISTERED, and stop timer T3417 or T3417ext if still running.

If the EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message contained the NAS signalling low priority indicator set to "MS is configured for NAS signalling low priority", the UE shall start timer T3346 with the "Extended wait time" value.

In other cases the UE shall ignore the "Extended wait time".

The service request procedure is started, if still necessary, when timer T3346 expires or is stopped.

If the service request was initiated for CS fallback and timer T3246 is not running, the UE in CS/PS mode 1 of operation shall select GERAN or UTRAN radio access technology and disable E-UTRA capability (see subclause 4.5). It then proceeds with appropriate MM and CC specific procedures. The EMM sublayer shall not indicate the abort of the service request procedure to the MM sublayer.

If the service request was initiated for 1xCS fallback, the UE shall select cdma2000® 1x radio access technology. The UE then proceeds with appropriate cdma2000® 1x CS call processing.

If the service request was initiated due to a request from the SMS entity to send an SMS and timer T3246 is not running, the UE, if operating in CS/PS mode 1 of operation, may select GERAN or UTRAN radio access technology and disable E-UTRA capability (see subclause 4.5). It then proceeds with the appropriate MM procedure.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.5.1.2]

In order to request connectivity to an additional PDN, the UE shall send a PDN CONNECTIVITY REQUEST message including a requested APN to the MME, start timer T3482 and enter the state PROCEDURE TRANSACTION PENDING (see example in figure 6.5.1.2.1). In the PDN type information element the UE shall indicate the IP version capability of the IP stack associated with the UE as specified in subclause 6.4.1

The UE shall set the request type to "initial request" when the UE is establishing connectivity to a PDN for the first time, i.e. when it is an initial attach to that PDN. The UE shall set the request type to "handover" when the connectivity to a PDN is established upon handover from a non-3GPP access network and the UE was connected to that PDN before the handover to the 3GPP access network.
