22.4.13.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in RRC_CONNECTED state }

ensure that {

when { UE receives an UECapabilityEnquiry-NB message }

then { UE transmits an UECapabilityInformation-NB message including UE radio access capability parameters }

}

22.4.13.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clause 5.6.3.3. Unless and otherwise stated these are Rel-13 requirements.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.6.3.3]

The UE shall:

1> for NB-IoT, set the contents of UECapabilityInformation message as follows:

2> include the UE Radio Access Capability Parameters within the ue-Capability-Container;

2> include ue-RadioPagingInfo;

2> submit the UECapabilityInformation message to lower layers for transmission, upon which the procedure ends;
