10.6.1 UE requested PDN disconnect procedure accepted by the network

10.6.1.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE is in BEARER CONTEXT ACTIVE STATE state }

ensure that {

when { UE is triggered to disconnect from a PDN }

then { UE sends a PDN DISCONNECT REQUEST message including the default EPS bearer identity associated with this PDN }

}

(2)

with { UE is in PROCEDURE TRANSACTION PENDING state }

ensure that {

when { UE receives a DEACTIVATE EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message with any valid ESM cause }

then { UE deactivates the default EPS bearer context for this PDN connection between the UE and the SS }

}

10.6.1.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 24.301, clauses 6.5.2.2, and 6.5.2.4.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.5.2.2]

In order to request PDN disconnection from a PDN, the UE shall send a PDN DISCONNECT REQUEST message to the MME, start the timer T3492 and enter the state PROCEDURE TRANSACTION PENDING (see example in figure 6.5.2.2.1). The PDN DISCONNECT REQUEST message shall include the EPS bearer identity of the default bearer associated with the PDN to disconnect from as the linked EPS bearer identity in the PDN DISCONNECT REQUEST message.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.5.2.3]

Upon receipt of the DEACTIVATE EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message, the UE shall stop the timer T3492 and enter the state PROCEDURE TRANSACTION INACTIVE. The behaviour of the UE is described in subclause 6.4.4.

[TS 24.301, clause 6.4.4.2]

If a NAS signalling connection exists when the MME initiates the EPS bearer context deactivation procedure, the MME shall initiate the EPS bearer context deactivation procedure by sending a DEACTIVATE EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message to the UE, start the timer T3495, and enter the state BEARER CONTEXT INACTIVE PENDING (see example in figure 6.4.4.2.1). The DEACTIVATE EPS BEARER CONTEXT REQUEST message contains an ESM cause typically indicating one of the following:

#8: operator determined barring;

#36: regular deactivation;

#38: network failure; or

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

The procedure transaction identity (PTI) shall also be included if the deactivation is triggered by a UE initiated bearer resource modification procedure or UE requested PDN disconnect procedure.

10.6.1.3 Test description

10.6.1.3.1 Pre-test conditions

System Simulator:

– Cell A is configured according to Table 6.3.2.2-1 in [18].

UE:

None.

Preamble:

– The UE is in state Registered, Idle mode (state 2) according to [18] on Cell A.

– Two default EPS bearer context are activated and present on UE side (a first PDN obtained during the attach procedure and an additional PDN).
