40 GPRS default conditions, message contents and macros

3GPP51.010-1Mobile Station (MS) conformance specificationPart 1: Conformance specificationTS

Editor’s note: From Rel-9 the PBCCH and PCCCH are removed from chapter 40.x but temporary test cases may still exist in 51.010 referencing to the macros using PBCCH and PCCCH.

40.1 Default test conditions

The following default test conditions shall apply if not otherwise stated within an individual test description.

The testcases for higher layers shall use the second set of default test conditions for channel combination v), xi) and xiii) as specified in subclause 40.3.

In the tables following, decimal values will normally be used. Where a hexadecimal value is used, it indicated with an "H". A binary value will be indicated with a "B".

For MSs that cannot be configured to send an exact number of octets in RLC data blocks of uplink data transfer, test cases specifying ‘uplink transfer of n octets data’ shall be interpreted as ‘ uplink transfer of at least n octets data’, unless otherwise stated in the test case.

Rel-6 network simulation shall apply unless otherwise stated in the test case.

NOTE 1: In case when NC mode is different from NC2 and PBCCH is not present in the cell and where neighbour cells are indicated in the testcase and are indeed activated, the MS shall read system information on the target cell (e.g. SI3, SI4 ) for cell reselection calculations . In these cases, the MS may temporarily suspend ongoing TBF (see 3GPP TS 04.60/3GPP TS 44.060 sub-clause 5.5.1.4.2). Test case implementation should take this into account i.e. that blocks or control messages sent by SS are missed during these SI refreshes.

NOTE 2: In addition:

– When the MS is performing autonomous cell reselection or

– when a PACKET CELL CHANGE ORDER is received by MS and the IMMEDIATE_REL bit is set to "0" or

– when PACKET CELL CHANGE CONTINUE is received by MS and relevant PACKET NEIGHBOUR CELL DATA messages are not received

the MS may continue operation in the old cell and acquire certain system information for the target cell (as per 04.60/44.060). In cases listed above ongoing TBF might be suspended temporarily as well. Test case implementation should take this into account i.e. that blocks or control messages sent by SS are missed during these SI refreshes.

List of affected testcases (by NOTE 2):

42.4.2.3.4, 42.4.4.1, 42.4.4.2, 42.4.4.5, 42.4.5.1, 42.4.5.2, 42.4.5.4, 42.4.5.5, 42.4.5.6, 42.4.5.7, 42.4.5.9, 42.4.6.1, 42.4.8.1.4, 42.4.8.1.6, , 44.2.1.1.7, 44.2.2.1.8, , 44.2.3.1.1a, 44.2.3.1.6, 44.2.3.1.7, 44.2.3.2.8, 44.2.3.2.9, 44.2.7.3.5, 46.2.2.1.5, 47.3.1.1, 47.3.1.2, 47.3.1.3, 47.3.2.1, 47.3.2.2, 47.3.3.1.1, 47.3.3.1.2, 47.3.4.2, 47.4.1.

NOTE 3: ‘One phase access’ test cases may not be fully executed for MS requesting ‘Two phases access’.

The resulting step “If the MS requests two phase access the Test Case is terminated” should be interpreted as “Test case is not applicable for the MS”.

List of affected testcases (by NOTE 3):

41.2.3.4, 41.2.3.5, 41.2.3.6, 41.2.3.7, 41.2.3.8, 41.2.3.9, 41.2.3.10, 41.2.3.11.

40.3 Default GPRS Conditions and Message Contents for the Higher Layer Test Cases

This clause details default conditions and messages that shall be used for the higher layer test cases (GPRS Mobility Management, Session Management and SNDCP).

These alternate conditions and messages are derived from the standard defaults via the changes listed in the following sub-clause. They aim to produce default conditions with permitted channel combinations of:

– FCCH+SCH+BCCH+CCCH+SDCCH/4+SACCH/4 (v. from 3GPP TS 05.02 ‘Permitted Channel Combinations onto a Basic Physical Channel’).

– PDTCH+PACCH+PTCCH (xiii. From 3GPP TS 05.02 ‘Permitted Channel Combinations onto a Basic Physical Channel’).

Where values have not been specified the equivalent overall default values should be used. If values need to be removed from the overall defaults then these should be specified as ‘OMITTED’.

40.4 Macros

40.4.1 Overview

The present document presents macros for GPRS test cases. It is intended to be a working document forming part of the GPRS Test Specifications.

40.4.1.1 Definition

A macro is a name or sentence, possibly followed by an argument list, that is equated to a text to which it is to be expanded, possibly with the substitution of actual arguments.

Macros may be used to simplify the writing and reading of the test cases or to avoid the repetition of common sentences, message contents or message sequences. The macros defined in this subclause can be used throughout the test cases.

The definition if the macros is done in alphabetical order.

40.4.1.2 Syntax

40.4.1.2.1 Message contents

Any macro referencing message contents shall use the following table:

Macro reference (arguments)

SI

Information Element

Value/Remarks

The table must contain:

Macro reference: word or sentence that gives the name to the macro. It may include a list of arguments with actual values for some IE’s.

SI: the System Information messages whose content is referenced. Several SIs can be referenced in this column. The defined IE value(s) refers to the SI(s) in the same row.

Information Element: IE which value is specified.

Value/Remarks: value and any other comment specific to the IE’s. In particular, the mapping between an argument value and its coding shall be specified in this column (see note).

NOTE: If possible, only the meaning of the value will be shown and not the value itself; this avoids updating when the core specifications are modified.

40.4.1.2.2 Message sequence

Any macro referencing message contents shall use the following table:

Step

Direction

Message

Comments

{ Macro reference }

Macro (arguments)

The table must contain:

Macro reference: word or sentence that gives the name to the macro. It may include a list of arguments with actual values for some parameters used within the macro.

Step: Number of the message. Letters may be used for general values: the same rules as in 3GPP TS 11.10 apply.

Direction: it must be either:

– "MS  SS": for an uplink message or a macro containing only uplink message(s);

– "SS  MS": for a downlink message or a macro containing only downlink message(s);

– "SS  MS": for a macro containing both uplink and downlink message(s);

– "MS": for an action performed on the mobile side; or

– "SS": for an action performed on the system simulator side.

Message: Message name or macro reference.

Comments: any other comment specific to the message. In particular, value of certain bits/fields of the correspondent message.

The symbol ‘’ can be used to indicate that the previous and following message or sequence of messages (both previous and following must appear) is sent an unknown number of times, probably referenced with a letter on the ‘step’ column.

In the uplink block specified by the RRBP field

NOTE 1: SI bit set to ‘0’ in all data blocks.

NOTE 2: The SS sends a PACKET UPLINK ACK/NACK message at least every k-1 RLC UPLINK DATA messages, being k the window size with a value of 64 blocks.

NOTE 3: The field CV in the RLC UPLINK DATA messages verifies:

where:

– TBC: total number of RLC data blocks that will be transmitted in the TBF;

– BSN’: absolute block sequence number of the RLC data block, from 0 to (TBC – 1);

– NTS: number of timeslots assigned to the uplink TBF, with range 1 to 8;

– the function round() rounds upwards to the nearest integer;

– BS_CV_MAX is a parameter broadcast in the system information;

– the division operation is non-integer and results in zero only for (TBC – BSN’ – 1) = 0.

NOTE 4: In the case of Dynamic MAC mode, the macro reference in the corresponding test case may contain a certain frequency (in seconds-1 or frames-1) for the SS to indicate the USF allocated to the mobile so that the MS is allowed to transmit. Otherwise, mobile’s USF is indicated in every available block.

40.5 Test PDP contexts

The following table defines Test PDP contexts required for test cases using packet services (e.g. GPRS, EGPRS, DTM). Test PDP context3 is the default Test PDP context which is used in the test cases where no particular Test PDP contexts are specified. Compression is always turned off if nothing else is stated explicitly in the test case.

If the MS does not include any PDP address, dynamic PDP address shall be assigned by the SS. The MS with Rel-8 behaviour shall not include the PDP address and the PDP address allocation is dynamic always.

NOTE 1: For compatibility purposes when performing R98 tests or earlier it is still allowed for the MS to reqeust Precedence Class 2 (normal) and Mean Throughput Class 16 (10 000 000 octets/h).

NOTE 2: From Rel-8 onwards MS is not expected to support QoS parameter Reliability Class=2. therefore Test PDP contexts 11, 12 and 13 are not required for test cases using packet services.
