17.4.3a.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_Connected state AND on a cell broadcasting SIB15 and interested to receive a MBMS service }

ensure that {

when { SIB15 indicates that the MBMS service is available on a frequency of a neighbour cell on a different frequency band }

then { UE transmits a MBMSInterestIndication message indicating interest in MBMS reception on the frequency }

}

(2)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_Connected state AND having transmitted a MBMSInterestIndication message indicating interest in MBMS reception on a frequency of a neighbour cell on a different frequency band }

ensure that {

when { UE receives RRCConnectionReconfiguration message including a mobilityControlInfo indicating a the E-UTRA frequency of the inter-frequency neighbour cell }

then { UE performs inter-band handover and starts MBMS reception }

}
