19.1.6.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 24.334, clauses 5.1.1, 5.1.2, 10.2.1, 10.2.2, 10.2.3, 10.3.2.1.1, 10.3.2.1.2, TS 36.331, clauses 5.2.2.4, 5.2.2.25, 5.10.3, 5.10.4, 5.10.7.1, 5.10.7.2, 5.10.7.3, 5.10.7.4, 5.10.9.1, 5.10.9.2. Unless otherwise stated these are Rel-12 requirements.

[TS 24.334, clause 5.1.1]

The service authorisation for ProSe direct discovery and ProSe direct communication determines whether the UE is authorised to use ProSe direct discovery announcing or ProSe direct discovery monitoring or both, and to use ProSe direct communication, in a particular PLMN or when not served by E-UTRAN. In this release of the specification, ProSe direct communication is supported only for Public Safety ProSe-enabled UE. The service authorisation is either:

1) pre-configured in the UE. The pre-configured service authorisation may be stored in the ME, or in the USIM as specified in 3GPP TS 31.102 [17], or in both the ME and the USIM. If both the ME and the USIM contain the same parameters, the values stored in the USIM shall take precedence. The UE shall not use the pre-configured service authorisation if the contents of the USIM indicate that the UE is not authorised to use them (see 3GPP TS 31.102 [17]); or

[TS 24.334, clause 5.1.2]

The IP address of the ProSe function in the HPLMN may be pre-configured in the UE and in this case, the UE may use the pre-configured IP address. Alternatively, the FQDN of the ProSe Function in the HPLMN may be self-constructed by the UE, i.e. derived from the PLMN ID of the HPLMN. The UE may perform DNS lookup as specified in IETF RFC 1035 [10].

[TS 24.334, clause 10.2.1]

One-to-many ProSe direct communication is applicable only to ProSe-enabled Public Safety UEs. One-to-many ProSe direct communication can only apply when the UE is:

b) not served by E-UTRAN, and authorised for ProSe direct communication for "not served by E-UTRAN"; or

Upon receiving a request from upper layers to send or receive data for ProSe direct communication in a given group, the UE shall initiate the procedure for ProSe direct communication. For case a, the UE shall perform ProSe direct communication procedures specified in subclause 10.2.2. For case b and c, the UE shall perform ProSe direct communication procedures specified in subclause 10.2.3.

The UE shall obtain the ProSe direct communication policy parameters for that group as specified in subclause 5.

If the ProSe direct communication policy parameters indicate that the UE is configured to use IPv6 for that group, the UE shall auto-configures a link local IPv6 Address following procedures defined in RFC 4862 [15]. This address can only be used as the source IP address for one-to-many ProSe direct communication.

If the ProSe Direct communication policy parameters group indicate that the UE is configured to use IPv4 for that group, then the UE shall:

– use the configured IPv4 address for that group as source address; or

– if there is no configured IPv4 address for that group, use Dynamic Configuration of IPv4 Link-Local Addresses as specified in IETF RFC 3927 [16].

[TS 24.334, clause 10.2.2]

When the UE is served by E-UTRAN and intends to use the ProSe radio resources (i.e. carrier frequency) provided by an E-UTRAN cell, the UE requests the parameters from the lower layers for transmitting or receiving ProSe direct communication (see 3GPP TS 36.331 [12]). The UE shall perform direct communication only if the lower layers indicate that ProSe direct communication is supported by the network. If the UE in EMM-IDLE mode has to request resources for ProSe direct communication as specified in 3GPP TS 36.331 [12], the UE shall perform a service request procedure or tracking area update procedure as specified in 3GPP TS 24.301 [11]. Once the radio resources for transmitting or receiving ProSe direct communication are provided by eNodeB as specified in 3GPP TS 36.331 [12], the UE shall start ProSe direct communication.

[TS 24.334, clause 10.2.3]

When the UE is not served by E-UTRAN, the UE shall select the radio parameters to be used for ProSe direct communication as follows:

– if the UE can determine itself located in a geographical area, and the UE is provisioned with radio parameters for the geographical area, the UE shall select the radio parameters associated with that geographical area; or

– in all other cases, the UE shall not initiate ProSe direct communication.

NOTE 1: It is out of scope of the present specification to define how the UE can locate itself in a specific Geographical Area. When the UE is in coverage of a 3GPP RAT it can for example use information derived from the serving PLMN. When the UE is not in coverage of a 3GPP RAT it can use other techniques as determined by local regulations.

If the UE is performing ProSe direct communication using radio parameters associated with a geographical area and moves out of that geographical area, the UE shall stop performing ProSe direct communication and then:

– if the UE is not served by E-UTRAN or the UE intends to use radio resources for ProSe other than those operated by the serving E-UTRAN cell, the UE shall select appropriate radio parameters for the new geographical area as specified above; or

– if the UE is served by E-UTRAN and intends to use radio resources for ProSe operated by the serving E-UTRAN cell, the UE shall proceed with the procedure to initiate ProSe direct communication when served by E-UTRAN.

[TS 24.334, clause 10.3.2.1.1]

The purpose of the usage information report list sending procedure is to enable a ProSe-enabled Public Safety UE to provide information necessary for composing of charging events related to the ProSe direct communication as defined in 3GPP TS 32.277 [27].

The UE shall perform the usage information report list sending procedure with the Accounting Data Forwarding (ADF) function block of the Charging Trigger Function (CTF) in the ProSe Function (ProSe Function CTF (ADF)) residing in the HPLMN.

The UE shall construct the usage information report based on the policy described in subclause 5.1.3.

2) if a usage information report list sending procedure was not performed yet after beginning of ProSe direct communication, the configured collection period has elapsed since beginning of ProSe direct communication;

3) the configured reporting window has not elapsed after the configured collection period elapsed;

4) the UE is in the RRC CONNECTED mode; and

5) the UE has usage information for at least one collection period; or

2) if a usage information report list sending procedure was not performed yet after beginning of ProSe direct communication, the configured collection period has elapsed since beginning of ProSe direct communication;

3) the configured reporting window has elapsed after the configured collection period elapsed; and

4) the UE has usage information for at least one collection period.

The UE shall initiate the usage information report list sending procedure by sending a USAGE_INFORMATION_REPORT_LIST message to the ProSe Function CTF (ADF).

If the UE is configured with the IP address of the ProSe Function CTF (ADF), the UE shall send the USAGE_INFORMATION_REPORT_LIST message to the configured IP address of the ProSe Function CTF (ADF).

[TS 36.331, clause 5.2.2.4]

1> if the UE is capable of sidelink communication and is configured by upper layers to receive or transmit sidelink communication:

2> if the cell used for sidelink communication meets the S-criteria as defined in TS 36.304 [4]; and

2> if schedulingInfoList indicates that SystemInformationBlockType18 is present and the UE does not have stored a valid version of this system information block:

3> acquire SystemInformationBlockType18;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.2.2.25]

Upon receiving SystemInformationBlockType18, the UE shall:

1> if SystemInformationBlockType18 message includes the commConfig:

2> if configured to receive sidelink communication:

3> from the next SC period, as defined by sc-Period, use the resource pool indicated by commRxPool for sidelink communication monitoring, as specified in 5.10.3;

2> if configured to transmit sidelink communication:

3> from the next SC period, as defined by sc-Period, use the resource pool indicated by commTxPoolNormalCommon or by commTxPoolExceptional for sidelink communication transmission, as specified in 5.10.4;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.10.3]

A UE capable of sidelink communication that is configured by upper layers to receive sidelink communication shall:

2> else (i.e. out of coverage on the sidelink carrier):

3> configure lower layers to monitor sidelink control information and the corresponding data using the pool of resources that were preconfigured (i.e. preconfigComm in SL-Preconfiguration defined in 9.3);

[TS 36.331, clause 5.10.7.1]

Figure 5.10.7.1-2: Synchronisation information transmission for sidelink communication, out of coverage

The purpose of this procedure is to provide synchronisation information to a UE. The synchronisation information concerns a Sidelink Synchronisation Signal (SLSS) for sidelink discovery, while it concerns an SLSS, timing information and some additional configuration parameters (i.e. the MasterInformationBlock-SL message) for sidelink communication. A UE transmits synchronisation information either when E-UTRAN configures it to do so by dedicated signalling (i.e. network based), or when not configured by dedicated signalling (i.e. UE based) and E-UTRAN broadcasts (in coverage) or pre-configures a threshold (out of coverage).

The synchronisation information transmitted by the UE may be derived from information/ signals received from E-UTRAN (in coverage) or received from a UE acting as synchronisation reference for the transmitting UE. In the remainder, the UE acting as synchronisation reference is referred to as SyncRef UE.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.10.7.2]

A UE shall, when transmitting sidelink communication in accordance with 5.10.4 and when the following conditions are met:

..

1> else (i.e. out of coverage):

2> if syncTxThreshOoC is included in the preconfigured sidelink parameters (i.e. SL-Preconfiguration defined in 9.3); and the UE has no selected SyncRef UE or the S-RSRP measurement result of the selected SyncRef UE is below the value of syncTxThreshOoC:

3> transmit SLSS in accordance with 5.10.7.3 and TS 36.211 [21];

3> transmit the MasterInformationBlock-SL message, in the same subframe as SLSS, and in accordance with 5.10.7.4;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.10.7.3]

The UE shall select the SLSSID and the subframe in which to transmit SLSS as follows:

1> if triggered by sidelink communication:

2> else (i.e. out of coverage on sidelink carrier):

3> select the synchronisation reference UE (i.e. SyncRef UE) as defined in 5.10.8;

3> if the UE has a selected SyncRef UE and inCoverage in the MasterInformationBlock-SL message received from this UE is set to TRUE; or

4> select the same SLSSID as the SLSSID of the selected SyncRef UE;

4> select the subframe in which to transmit the SLSS according to the syncOffsetIndicator1 or syncOffsetIndicator2 included in the preconfigured sidelink parameters (i.e. preconfigSync in SL-Preconfiguration defined in 9.3), such that the subframe timing is different from the SLSS of the selected SyncRef UE;

3> else if the UE has a selected SyncRef UE:

4> select the SLSSID from the set defined for out of coverage having an index that is 168 more than the index of the SLSSID of the selected SyncRef UE, see TS 36.211 [21];

4> select the subframe in which to transmit the SLSS according to syncOffsetIndicator1 or syncOffsetIndicator2 included in the preconfigured sidelink parameters (i.e. preconfigSync in SL-Preconfiguration defined in 9.3), such that the subframe timing is different from the SLSS of the selected SyncRef UE;

3> else (i.e. no SyncRef UE selected):

4> randomly select, using a uniform distribution, an SLSSID from the set of sequences defined for out of coverage, see TS 36.211 [21];

4> select the subframe in which to transmit the SLSS according to the syncOffsetIndicator1 or syncOffsetIndicator2 (arbitrary selection between these) included in the preconfigured sidelink parameters (i.e. preconfigSync in SL-Preconfiguration defined in 9.3);

[TS 36.331, clause 5.10.7.4]

The UE shall set the contents of the MasterInformationBlock-SL message as follows:

1> else if the UE has a selected SyncRef UE (as defined in 5.10.8):

2> set inCoverage to FALSE;

2> set sl-Bandwidth, subframeAssignmentSL and reserved to the value of the corresponding field included in the received MasterInformationBlock-SL;

1> else (i.e. no SyncRef UE selected):

2> set inCoverage to FALSE;

2> set sl-Bandwidth, subframeAssignmentSL and reserved to the value of the corresponding field included in the preconfigured sidelink parameters (i.e. preconfigGeneral in SL-Preconfiguration defined in 9.3);

1> set directFrameNumber and directSubframeNumber according to the subframe used to transmit the SLSS, as specified in 5.10.7.3;

1> submit the MasterInformationBlock-SL message to lower layers for transmission upon which the procedure ends;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.10.9.1]

The sidelink common control information is carried by a single message, the MasterInformationBlock-SL (MIB-SL) message. The MIB-SL includes timing information as well as some configuration parameters and is transmitted via SL-BCH.

The MIB-SL uses a fixed schedule with a periodicity of 40 ms without repetitions. In particular, the MIB-SL is scheduled in subframes indicated by syncOffsetIndicator i.e. for which (10*DFN + subframe number) mod 40 = syncOffsetIndicator.

The sidelink common control information may change at any transmission i.e. neither a modification period nor a change notification mechanism is used.

A UE configured to receive or transmit sidelink communication shall:

1> if the UE has a selected SyncRef UE, as specified in 5.10.8.2:

2> ensure having a valid version of the MasterInformationBlock-SL message of that SyncRefUE:

[TS 36.331, clause 5.10.9.2]

Upon receiving MasterInformationBlock-SL, the UE shall:

1> apply the values of sl-Bandwidth, subframeAssignmentSL, directFrameNumber and directSubframeNumber included in the received MasterInformationBlock-SL message;

– As defined in TS 36.508 [18], configured for and operating as ProSe Direct Communication transmitting and receiving device, as well as, transmitting Synchronisation information on the resources which the UE is expected to use for transmission and reception (as specified in the relevant procedure steps in Table 19.1.6.3.2-1).

UE:

– ProSe related configuration

– The UE is authorised to perform ProSe Direct Communication; The UE is equipped with a USIM containing values shown in Table 19.1.6.3.1-1, and, relevant to each of the supported services values as specified in TS 36.508 [18], section 4.9.3.1 (e.g. 2 PLMNs are authorised for ProSe Direct Communication when served by E-UTRAN, Direct Communication Radio Parameters and geographical area when UE is "not served by E-UTRAN", ProSe Layer-2 Group ID, ProSe Group IP multicast address, relevant information requesting/allowing the submission of Usage Information Reports, etc.).

Service n°9 (UICC ProSe Direct Communication usage information reporting) supported.

EFAD

b3=1: the ME is authorized to use the parameters stored in the USIM or in the ME for ProSe services for Public Safety usage.

– For each PLMN a timer T4005 is assigned long enough not to expire before the TC is completed, e.g. 9 min (for Rel-12 this timer cannot be set in the USIM, it is expected that the UE shall provide means for setting the timer e.g. via MMI).

NOTE: The requirement for authorisation of a second PLMN is not essential for the present TC. It is included simply to allow the same pre-configured SIM to be used for most, if not all, of the ProSe TCs).

Preamble:

– The UE is in state Generic RB Established, UE Test Mode E Activated (State 3A) according to [18] on Cell 1.
