24.1.20.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE supporting V2X sidelink communication is authorized to use V2X communication over PC5 reference point }

ensure that {

when { UE in limited service state because of receiving a "PLMN not allowed" response to a registration request, and is triggered by an upper layer application to transmit V2X sidelink communication }

then { UE shall only use the radio resources and procedure available in IDLE mode for V2X communication }

}

(2)

with { UE supporting V2X sidelink communication is authorized to use V2X communication over PC5 reference point }

ensure that {

when { UE in limited service state because of receiving a "EPS services not allowed" response to a registration request, and is triggered by an upper layer application to transmit V2X sidelink communication }

then { UE shall only use the radio resources and procedure available in IDLE mode for V2X communication }

}

24.1.20.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 23.285, clauses 4.4.8.

[TS 23.285, clause 4.4.8]

For UE in limited service state, only V2X communication over PC5 is allowed.

UEs that are authorized to use V2X communication over PC5 reference point shall be able to use V2X communication over PC5 reference point when in limited service state following the principles defined in clause 4.4.1.1.3 for V2X communication over PC5 reference point when the UE enters in limited service state:

– because it cannot find a suitable cell of the selected PLMN as described in TS 23.122 [23] or

– as the result of receiving one of the following reject reasons defined in TS 23.122 [23]:

– a "PLMN not allowed" response to a registration request or;

– a "GPRS not allowed" response to a registration request

A UE in limited service state shall only use the radio resources and procedure available in ECM-IDLE mode for V2X communication over PC5 reference point, for details see TS 36.300 [10].

UEs shall not use V2X communication over PC5 reference point using the "operator-managed" radio resources, as specified in clause 4.4.1.1.2, if the UE has entered in limited service state due to all other situations (e.g. no SIM in the MS, an "illegal MS" or "illegal ME" response to a registration request, or an "IMSI unknown in HLR" response to a registration request) defined in TS 23.122 [23], where the UE is unable to obtain normal service from a PLMN. The UEs may use V2X communication over PC5 reference point using the "non-operator-managed" radio resources, as specified in clause 4.4.1.1.2, according to the principles defined in clause 4.4.1.1.3.
