11.2.6.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in state EMM-REGISTERED and EMM-IDLE mode, Emergency numbers stored in the USIM and a Local Emergency Numbers List provided during the Attach procedure }

ensure that {

when { UE is requested to initiate a call with a number belonging to the emergency numbers stored in the USIM }

then { UE initiates an emergency call }

}

(2)

with { UE in state EMM-REGISTERED and EMM-IDLE mode, Emergency numbers stored in the USIM and a Local Emergency Numbers List provided during the Attach procedure }

ensure that {

when { UE performs a tracking area update to a new tracking area not included in the TAI list and belonging to a network with the same MCC and the TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT message sent by the network includes a Local Emergency Numbers List with 10 new numbers }

then { UE overwrites the old list with the new one and recognises each of the new numbers as an emergency number }

}

(3)

with { UE in state EMM-REGISTERED and EMM-IDLE mode, Emergency numbers stored in the USIM and a Local Emergency Numbers List provided during a tracking area update }

ensure that {

when { UE performs a tracking area update to a new tracking area not included in the TAI list and not belonging to a network with the same MCC }

then { UE recognises the numbers stored in the USIM as emergency numbers }

}

(4)

with { UE in state EMM-REGISTERED and EMM-IDLE mode, Emergency numbers stored in the USIM and a Local Emergency Numbers List provided during the Attach procedure }

11.2.6.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: 3GPP TS 24.301 clause 5.3.7, TS 22.101 clause 10.1.1.

[TS 24.301 clause 5.3.7]

The Local Emergency Numbers List contains additional emergency numbers used by the serving network. The list can be downloaded by the network to the UE at successful registration and subsequent registration updates. There is only one Local Emergency Numbers List in the UE, and it can be updated with EMM procedures if the UE is in S1 mode and with GMM and MM procedures if the UE is in A/Gb or Iu mode.

The UE shall use the stored Local Emergency Numbers List received from the network in addition to the emergency numbers stored on the USIM or user equipment to detect that the number dialled is an emergency number.

NOTE: The user equipment may use the emergency numbers list to assist the end user in determining whether the dialled number is intended for an emergency service or for another destination, e.g. a local directory service. The possible interactions with the end user are implementation specific.

The network may send a Local Emergency Numbers List in the ATTACH ACCEPT or in the TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT messages, by including the Emergency Number List IE. The user equipment shall store the Local Emergency Numbers List, as provided by the network, except that any emergency number that is already stored in the USIM shall be removed from the Local Emergency Numbers List before it is stored by the user equipment. If there are no emergency numbers stored on the USIM, then before storing the received Local Emergency Numbers List, the user equipment shall remove from the Local Emergency Numbers List any emergency number stored permanently in the user equipment for use in this case (see 3GPP TS 22.101 [8]). The Local Emergency Numbers List stored in the user equipment shall be replaced on each receipt of a new Emergency Number List IE.

The emergency number(s) received in the Emergency Number List IE are valid only in networks with the same MCC as in the cell on which this IE is received. If no Local Emergency Numbers List is contained in the ATTACH ACCEPT or in the TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT message, then the stored Local Emergency Numbers List in the user equipment shall be kept, except if the user equipment has successfully registered to a PLMN with an MCC different from that of the last registered PLMN.

The Local Emergency Numbers List shall be deleted at switch off and removal of the USIM. The user equipment shall be able to store up to ten local emergency numbers received from the network.

[TS 24.301 clause 5.6.1.5A]

If the service request for initiating a PDN connection for emergency bearer services cannot be accepted by the network, the UE shall perform the procedures as described in subclause 5.6.1.5. Then if the UE is in the same selected PLMN where the last service request was attempted, the UE shall:

a) inform the upper layers. This could result in the UE attempting a CS emergency call (if not already attempted in the CS domain) or other implementation specific mechanisms, e.g. procedures specified in 3GPP TS 24.229 [13D] that can result in the emergency call being attempted to another IP-CAN; or

b) detach locally, if not detached already, attempt EPS attach for emergency bearer services.

If the service request for initiating a PDN connection for emergency bearer services fails due to abnormal cases b), c) or e) in subclause 5.6.1.6, the UE shall perform the procedures as described in subclause 5.6.1.6. Then if the UE is in the same selected PLMN where the last service request was attempted, the UE shall:

a) inform the upper layers. This could result in the UE attempting a CS emergency call (if not already attempted in the CS domain) or other implementation specific mechanisms, e.g. procedures specified in 3GPP TS 24.229 [13D] that can result in the emergency call being attempted to another IP-CAN; or

b) detach locally, if not detached already, attempt EPS attach for emergency bearer services.[TS 22.101 clause 10.1.1]

The ME shall identify an emergency number dialled by the end user as a valid emergency number and initiate emergency call establishment if it occurs under one or more of the following conditions. If it occurs outside of the following conditions, the ME should not initiate emergency call establishment but normal call establishment. Emergency number identification takes place before and takes precedence over any other (e.g. supplementary service related) number analysis.

a) 112 and 911 shall always be available. These numbers shall be stored on the ME.

b) Any emergency call number stored on a SIM/USIM when the SIM/USIM is present.

c) 000, 08, 110, 999, 118 and 119 when a SIM/USIM is not present. These numbers shall be stored on the ME.

d) Additional emergency call numbers that may have been downloaded by the serving network when the SIM/USIM is present.

11.2.6.3 Test description

11.2.6.3.1 Pre-test conditions

System Simulator:

– Cell A is set to ”Serving cell”;

– Cell C is set to ”Non-Suitable cell”;

– Cell E is set to ”Non-Suitable cell”.

– System information combination 3 as defined in TS 36.508[18] clause 4.4.3.1 is used in E-UTRA cells

UE:

– USIM contains 2 Emergency Numbers: 117, 144

– The following EN are configured as permanent EN on the UE: 112, 911, 000, 08, 110, 999, 118 and 119 (see TS 22.101 clause 10.1.1).

Preamble:

– the UE is in state Registered, Idle Mode (state 2) on Cell A according to TS 36.508 [18].

– During the attach the ATTACH ACCEPT message provides Local Emergency Numbers List. The local emergency number list is different from all emergency numbers stored in the USIM AND any emergency number stored permanently in the UE.
