6.2.3.1.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1, 5.2.4.2 and 5.2.4.5.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1]

Absolute priorities of different E-UTRAN frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies may be provided to the UE in the system information, in the RRCConnectionRelease message, or by inheriting from another RAT at inter-RAT cell (re)selection. In the case of system information, an E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency may be listed without providing a priority (i.e. the field cellReselectionPriority is absent for that frequency). If priorities are provided in dedicated signalling, the UE shall ignore all the priorities provided in system information. If UE is in camped on any cell state, UE shall only apply the priorities provided by system information from current cell, and the UE preserves priorities provided by dedicated signalling unless specified otherwise. When the UE in camped normally state, has only dedicated priorities other than for the current frequency, the UE shall consider the current frequency to be the lowest priority frequency (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values). The UE shall delete priorities provided by dedicated signalling when:

  • the UE enters RRC_CONNECTED state; or
  • the optional validity time of dedicated priorities (T320) expires; or
  • a PLMN selection is performed on request by NAS [5].

NOTE: Equal priorities between RATs are not supported.

The UE shall only perform cell reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies that are given in system information and for which the UE has a priority provided.

The UE shall not consider any black listed cells as candidate for cell reselection.

The UE shall inherit the priorities provided by dedicated signalling and the remaining validity time (i.e., T320 in E-UTRA, T322 in UTRA and [T3230, FFS] in GERAN), if configured, at inter-RAT cell (re)selection.

NOTE: The network may assign dedicated cell reselection priorities for frequencies not configured by system information.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.2]

When evaluating for reselection purposes cell selection criterion or SnonServingCell,x, the UE shall use parameters provided by the serving cell.

Following rules are used by the UE to limit needed measurements:

– If Sintrasearch is sent in the serving cell and SServingCell > Sintrasearch, UE may choose to not perform intra-frequency measurements.

– If SServingCell <= Sintrasearch, or Sintrasearch is not sent in the serving cell UE shall perform intra-frequency measurements.

– The UE shall apply the following rules for E-UTRAN inter-frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies which are indicated in system information and for which the UE has priority provided as defined in 5.2.4.1:

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequency with a reselection priority higher than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency the UE shall perform measurements of higher priority E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequencies according to [10].

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency with an equal or lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency and for inter-RAT frequency with lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRAN frequency:

– If Snonintrasearch is sent in the serving cell and SServingCell > Snonintrasearch UE may choose not to perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority.

– If SServingCell <= Snonintrasearch or Snonintrasearch is not sent in the serving cell the UE shall perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority according to [10].

Where SServingCell is the Srxlev-value of the serving cell.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

Criteria 1: the SnonServingCell,x of a cell on evaluated frequency is greater than Threshx, high during a time interval TreselectionRAT;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency fulfils criteria 1; and

  • more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than serving frequency shall be performed if:

– No cell on serving frequency or on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency or on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than serving frequency fulfils the criteria 1; and

– SServingCell < Threshserving, low and the SnonServingCell,x of a cell of a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency is greater than Threshx, low during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

or if:

– there are no candidate cells for reselection on serving frequency according to 5.2.4.4 or 5.3.1.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

For GERAN, UTRAN, and E-UTRAN, SnonServingCell,x is the Srxlev-value of an evaluated cell. For UTRAN FDD, Squal is higher than 0, as defined in [8]. For cdma2000 RATs, SnonServingCell,x is equal to FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured From the evaluated cell.

6.2.3.1a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, HighQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

– A cell of a higher priority UTRAN TDD, GERAN or CDMA2000 RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, LowQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority UTRAN TDD, GERAN or CDMA2000 RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Srxlev < ThreshServing, LowP and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a higher priority RAT/ frequency shall take precedence over a lower priority RAT/ frequency, if multiple cells of different priorities fulfil the cell reselection criteria.

For cdma2000 RATs, Srxlev is equal to -FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured from the evaluated cell.

For cdma2000 RATs, ThreshX, HighP and ThreshX, LowP are equal to -1 times the values signalled for the corresponding parameters in the system information.

In all the above criteria the value of TreselectionRAT is scaled when the UE is in the medium or high mobility state as defined in subclause 5.2.4.3.1. If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect a cell as follows:

– If the highest-priority frequency is an E-UTRAN frequency, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria according to section 5.2.4.6;

– If the highest-priority frequency is from another RAT, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria of that RAT.

6.2.3.3.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a and 5.2.6.1.4a.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a]

If the UE has received absolute priority information for inter-RAT layers, the UE shall follow these rules:

– The UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers with a priority higher than the priority of the current serving cell.

NOTE: The rate of these measurements may vary depending on whether Srxlev and Squal of the serving cell are above or below Sprioritysearch1 and Sprioritysearch2. This is specified in [10].

– For inter-RAT layers with a priority lower than the priority of the current serving cell:

– If SrxlevServingCell > Sprioritysearch1 and SqualServingCell > Sprioritysearch2 the UE may choose not to perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

– If SrxlevServingCell <= Sprioritysearch1 or SqualServingCell <= Sprioritysearch2 the UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.4a]

Absolute priorities of different absolute priority layers may be provided to the UE. The following cell reselection criteria are used for inter-frequency cells if absolute priority information for inter-frequency is available to the UE, and inter-RAT cells if absolute priority information for inter-RAT is available to the UE.

The following definitions apply:

– Criterion 1: the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated higher absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,high during a time interval Treselection;

– Criterion 3: SrxlevServingCell < Threshserving,low or SqualServingCell < 0 and the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated lower absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,low during a time interval Treselection;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 1 is fulfilled.

Cell reselection to a cell on a lower absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 3 is fulfilled.

If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect the cell with the highest SrxlevnonServingCell,x among the cells meeting the criteria on the highest absolute priority layer.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection to cells for which the cell selection criterion S is not fulfilled.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection until more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

6.2.3.3a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a and 5.2.6.1.4a.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a]

If the UE has received absolute priority information for inter-RAT layers, the UE shall follow these rules:

– The UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers with a priority higher than the priority of the current serving cell.

NOTE: The rate of these measurements may vary depending on whether Srxlev and Squal of the serving cell are above or below Sprioritysearch1 and Sprioritysearch2. This is specified in [10].

– For inter-RAT layers with a priority lower than the priority of the current serving cell:

– If SrxlevServingCell > Sprioritysearch1 and SqualServingCell > Sprioritysearch2 the UE may choose not to perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

– If SrxlevServingCell <= Sprioritysearch1 or SqualServingCell <= Sprioritysearch2 the UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.4a]

Absolute priorities of different absolute priority layers may be provided to the UE. The following cell reselection criteria are used for inter-frequency cells if absolute priority inform69ation for inter-frequency is available to the UE, and inter-RAT cells if absolute priority information for inter-RAT is available to the UE.

The following definitions apply for the layers for which Threshx,high2 or Threshx,low2 are not provided:

– Criterion 1: the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated higher absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,high during a time interval Treselection;

– Criterion 3: (SrxlevServingCell < Threshserving,low or SqualServingCell <= 0) and the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated lower absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,low during a time interval Treselection;

The following definitions apply for the layers for which both Threshx,high2 and Threshx,low2 are provided:

– Criterion 4: the SqualnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated higher absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,high2 during a time interval Treselection;

– Criterion 5: (SqualServingCell < Threshserving,low2 or SrxlevServingCell <= 0) and the SqualnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated lower absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,low2 during a time interval Treselection;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 1 or 4 is fulfilled.

Cell reselection to a cell on a lower absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 3 or 5 is fulfilled.

If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect the cell with the highest SrxlevnonServingCell,x among the cells meeting the criteria on the highest absolute priority layer.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection to cells for which the cell selection criterion S is not fulfilled.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection until more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection from UTRAN to E-UTRAN, for which Squal (RSRQ) based cell reselection parameters are broadcast in system information, shall be performed based on the Squal criteria (criterion 4 or 5) if the UE supports Squal based cell reselection from E-UTRAN to UTRAN. Otherwise, cell reselection to E-UTRAN shall be performed based on Srxlev criteria.

6.2.3.4 Inter-RAT Cell reselection / From UTRA_CELL_PCH state to E-UTRA RRC_IDLE

6.2.3.4.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in UTRA_CELL_PCH state }

ensure that {

when { UE detects the cell re-selection criteria are met for the cell which belongs to the higher priority inter-RAT E-UTRA cell}

then { UE reselects the cell which belongs to the higher priority inter-RAT E-UTRA cell }

}

6.2.3.4.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a and 5.2.6.1.4a; TS 25.331, clause 8.3.9.2, 8.3.9.3, Annex E.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a]

The measurement rules below apply in Idle, URA_PCH, CELL_PCH states.

If the UE has received absolute priority information for inter-RAT layers, the UE shall follow these rules:

– The UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers with a priority higher than the priority of the current serving cell.

NOTE: The rate of these measurements may vary depending on whether Srxlev and Squal of the serving cell are above or below Sprioritysearch1 and Sprioritysearch2. This is specified in [10].

– For inter-RAT layers with a priority lower than the priority of the current serving cell:

– If SrxlevServingCell > Sprioritysearch1 and SqualServingCell > Sprioritysearch2 the UE may choose not to perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

– If SrxlevServingCell <= Sprioritysearch1 or SqualServingCell <= Sprioritysearch2 the UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.4a]

Absolute priorities of different absolute priority layers may be provided to the UE. The following cell reselection criteria are used for inter-frequency cells if absolute priority information for inter-frequency is available to the UE, and inter-RAT cells if absolute priority information for inter-RAT is available to the UE.

The following definitions apply:

– Criterion 1: the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated higher absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,high during a time interval Treselection;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 1 is fulfilled.

If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect the cell with the highest SrxlevnonServingCell,x among the cells meeting the criteria on the highest absolute priority layer.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection to cells for which the cell selection criterion S is not fulfilled.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection until more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

For UE in RRC connected mode states CELL_PCH or URA_PCH the interval Treselections,PCH applies, if provided in SIB4 (see [4]), while for UE in RRC connected mode state CELL_FACH the interval Treselections,FACH applies, if provided in SIB4 (see [4]).

In all the above criteria the values of Treselections, Treselections,PCH or Treselections,FACH apply for Treselection and are scaled according to the UE mobility state and target RAT, as specified in 5.2.6.1.1a.

[TS 25.331, 8.3.9.2]

This procedure is applicable in states CELL_FACH, CELL_PCH or URA_PCH. Inter-RAT cell reselection to E-UTRAN in CELL_FACH state is not supported in this version of the specification.

When the UE based on received system information makes a cell reselection to a radio access technology other than UTRAN, e.g. GSM/GPRS or E-UTRA, according to the criteria specified in [4], the UE shall:

[TS 25.331, 8.3.9.3]

When the UE has succeeded in reselecting a cell in the target radio access technology, the UE shall:

1> release all UTRAN specific resources.

UTRAN should:

1> release all UE dedicated resources upon indication that the UE has completed a connection establishment to the other radio access technology.

[TS 25.331, Annex E]

This annex contains the definitions of the bits in EUTRA Feature Group Indicators.

In this release of the specification the UE shall include the optional EUTRA Feature Group Indicators IE in the UE multi-mode/multi RAT capability IE of the RRC message. For a specific indicator, if all functionalities for a feature group listed in Table E.1 have been implemented and tested, the UE shall set the indicator as "true" (as one), else (i.e. if any one of the functionalities in a feature group listed in Table E.1 have not been implemented or tested), the UE shall set the indicator as zero.

The UE shall set all indicators, which do not have a definition in the table E.1, as "false" (as zero).

If the optional EUTRA Feature Group Indicators IE is not included by a UE supporting a future release of the specification, the network may assume the UE supports all features in the feature groups listed in table E.1 and deployed in the network.

Clarification for mobility to EUTRAN

For mobility to E-UTRAN, it is assumed that we have 6 main "functions":

A. Support of measurements and cell reselection procedure in idle mode

B. Support of measurements and cell reselection procedure in CELL/URA_PCH

C. Support of RRC release with redirection procedure

D. Support of RRC reject with redirection procedure

E. Support of EUTRAN measurements and reporting in connected mode

F. Support of handover procedure in connected mode

Of the above, all UEs that indicate support of E-UTRA in UE capability signalling "Support of E-UTRA FDD" or "Support of E-UTRA TDD" support A), C) and D) EUTRA bands.

For B) above, UEs indicate support by the Group 1 indicator bit (if Group 1 is set to "true", it is supported for all EUTRA bands the UE supports).

For E) above, UEs indicate support by the Group 2 indicator bit (if Group 2 is set to "true", it is supported for all EUTRA bands the UE supports). The compressed mode capability for supported E-UTRA frequency bands ("Need for compressed mode") in "Measurement capability extension" is ignored by the network when Group 2 is set to "false".

For F) above, UEs indicate support by the separate UE capability signalling "Support of Inter-RAT PS Handover to E-UTRA FDD/TDD" defined in TS 25.306 (if this bit is set to "true", PS handover is supported for all EUTRA bands the UE supports). This bit can only be set to "true" if the UE has set the Group 2 indicator bit to "true".

6.2.3.4a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a and 5.2.6.1.4a; TS 25.331, clause 8.3.9.2, 8.3.9.3, Annex E.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a]

The measurement rules below apply in Idle, URA_PCH, CELL_PCH states.

If the UE has received absolute priority information for inter-RAT layers, the UE shall follow these rules:

– The UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers with a priority higher than the priority of the current serving cell.

NOTE: The rate of these measurements may vary depending on whether Srxlev and Squal of the serving cell are above or below Sprioritysearch1 and Sprioritysearch2. This is specified in [10].

– For inter-RAT layers with a priority lower than the priority of the current serving cell:

– If SrxlevServingCell > Sprioritysearch1 and SqualServingCell > Sprioritysearch2 the UE may choose not to perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

– If SrxlevServingCell <= Sprioritysearch1 or SqualServingCell <= Sprioritysearch2 the UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.4a]

Absolute priorities of different absolute priority layers may be provided to the UE. The following cell reselection criteria are used for inter-frequency cells if absolute priority information for inter-frequency is available to the UE, and inter-RAT cells if absolute priority information for inter-RAT is available to the UE.

The following definitions apply:

– Criterion 1: the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated higher absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,high during a time interval Treselection;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 1 is fulfilled.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.4a]

Absolute priorities of different absolute priority layers may be provided to the UE. The following cell reselection criteria are used for inter-frequency cells if absolute priority information for inter-frequency is available to the UE, and inter-RAT cells if absolute priority information for inter-RAT is available to the UE.

The following definitions apply for the layers for which Threshx,high2 or Threshx,low2 are not provided:

– Criterion 1: the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated higher absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,high during a time interval Treselection;

– Criterion 3: (SrxlevServingCell < Threshserving,low or SqualServingCell <= 0) and the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated lower absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,low during a time interval Treselection;

The following definitions apply for the layers for which both Threshx,high2 and Threshx,low2 are provided:

– Criterion 4: the SqualnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated higher absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,high2 during a time interval Treselection;

– Criterion 5: (SqualServingCell < Threshserving,low2 or SrxlevServingCell <= 0) and the SqualnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated lower absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,low2 during a time interval Treselection;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 1 or 4 is fulfilled.

Cell reselection to a cell on a lower absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 3 or 5 is fulfilled.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection until more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect the cell with the highest SrxlevnonServingCell,x among the cells meeting the criteria on the highest absolute priority layer.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection to cells for which the cell selection criterion S is not fulfilled.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection until more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

For UE in RRC connected mode states CELL_PCH or URA_PCH the interval Treselections,PCH applies, if provided in SIB4 (see [4]), while for UE in RRC connected mode state CELL_FACH the interval Treselections,FACH applies, if provided in SIB4 (see [4]).

In all the above criteria the values of Treselections, Treselections,PCH or Treselections,FACH apply for Treselection and are scaled according to the UE mobility state and target RAT, as specified in 5.2.6.1.1a.

Cell reselection from UTRAN to E-UTRAN, for which Squal (RSRQ) based cell reselection parameters are broadcast in system information, shall be performed based on the Squal criteria (criterion 4 or 5) if the UE supports Squal based cell reselection from E-UTRAN to UTRAN. Otherwise, cell reselection to E-UTRAN shall be performed based on Srxlev criteria.

[TS 25.331, 8.3.9.2]

This procedure is applicable in states CELL_FACH, CELL_PCH or URA_PCH. Inter-RAT cell reselection to E-UTRAN in CELL_FACH state is not supported in this version of the specification.

When the UE based on received system information makes a cell reselection to a radio access technology other than UTRAN, e.g. GSM/GPRS or E-UTRA, according to the criteria specified in [4], the UE shall:

6.2.3.5a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.2 and 5.2.4.5.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.2]

When evaluating Srxlev and Squal of non-serving cells for reselection purposes, the UE shall use parameters provided by the serving cell.

Following rules are used by the UE to limit needed measurements:

– If the serving cell fulfils Srxlev > SIntraSearchP and Squal > SIntraSearchQ, the UE may choose not to perform intra-frequency measurements.

– Otherwise, the UE shall perform intra-frequency measurements.

– The UE shall apply the following rules for E-UTRAN inter-frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies which are indicated in system information and for which the UE has priority provided as defined in 5.2.4.1:

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequency with a reselection priority higher than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency the UE shall perform measurements of higher priority E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequencies according to [10].

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency with an equal or lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency and for inter-RAT frequency with lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRAN frequency:

– If the serving cell fulfils Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ, the UE may choose not to perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority.

– Otherwise, the UE shall perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority according to [10].

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, HighQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, LowQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Srxlev < ThreshServing, LowP and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a higher priority RAT/ frequency shall take precedence over a lower priority RAT/ frequency, if multiple cells of different priorities fulfil the cell reselection criteria.

Cell reselection to another RAT, for which Squal based cell reselection parameters are broadcast in system information, shall be performed based on the Squal criteria if the UE supports Squal (RSRQ) based cell reselection to E-UTRAN from all the other RATs provided by system information which UE supports. Otherwise, cell reselection to another RAT shall be performed based on Srxlev criteria.

6.2.3.6 Inter-RAT Cell reselection / From E-UTRA RRC_IDLE to UTRA_Idle according to RAT priority provided by dedicated signalling

6.2.3.6.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_IDLE state having received an RRCConnectionRelease message including a cellReselectionPriority }

ensure that {

when { UE detects the cell re-selection criteria are met for the cell which belongs to the higher priority RAT }

then { UE reselects the cell which belongs to the higher priority RAT }

}

(2)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_IDLE state having received an RRCConnectionRelease message including a cellReselectionPriority }

ensure that {

when { UE detects the cell re-selection criteria are met for the cell which belongs to the lower priority RAT }

then { UE reselects the cell which belongs to the lower priority RAT }

}

(3)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_IDLE state having received an RRCConnectionRelease message including a cellReselectionPriority }

ensure that {

when { T320 expires }

then { UE reselects a cell by applying the cellReselectionPriority broadcast in the system information }

}

(4)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_IDLE state, and reselection priorities have been provided in dedicated signalling }

ensure that {

when { T320 has not expired }

then { The UE shall ignore all the priorities provided in system information, and not perform cell reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies for which the UE doesn’t have a priority provided }

}

6.2.3.6.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1 and 5.2.4.5 and TS 36.331, clause 5.3.8.3 and 5.3.8.4.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1]

Absolute priorities of different E-UTRAN frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies may be provided to the UE in the system information, in the RRCConnectionRelease message, or by inheriting from another RAT at inter-RAT cell (re)selection. In the case of system information, an E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency may be listed without providing a priority (i.e. the field cellReselectionPriority is absent for that frequency). If priorities are provided in dedicated signalling, the UE shall ignore all the priorities provided in system information. If UE is in camped on any cell state, UE shall only apply the priorities provided by system information from current cell, and the UE preserves priorities provided by dedicated signalling unless specified otherwise. When the UE in camped normally state, has only dedicated priorities other than for the current frequency, the UE shall consider the current frequency to be the lowest priority frequency (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values). While the UE is camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall always consider the current frequency to be the highest priority frequency (i.e. higher than the eight network configured values), irrespective of any other priority value allocated to this frequency. The UE shall delete priorities provided by dedicated signalling when:

  • the UE enters RRC_CONNECTED state; or
  • the optional validity time of dedicated priorities (T320) expires; or
  • a PLMN selection is performed on request by NAS [5].

NOTE: Equal priorities between RATs are not supported.

The UE shall only perform cell reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies that are given in system information and for which the UE has a priority provided.

The UE shall not consider any black listed cells as candidate for cell reselection.

The UE shall inherit the priorities provided by dedicated signalling and the remaining validity time (i.e., T320 in E-UTRA, T322 in UTRA and T3230 in GERAN), if configured, at inter-RAT cell (re)selection.

NOTE: The network may assign dedicated cell reselection priorities for frequencies not configured by system information.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

Criteria 1: the SnonServingCell,x of a cell on evaluated frequency is greater than Threshx, high during a time interval TreselectionRAT;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency fulfils criteria 1; and

  • more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

Cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than serving frequency shall be performed if:

– No cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than serving frequency fulfills the criteria 1; and

– No cell on serving frequency or on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency fulfils the criteria in 5.2.4.6; and

– SServingCell < Threshserving, low and the SnonServingCell,x of a cell of a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency is greater than Threshx, low during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

For GERAN, UTRAN, and E-UTRAN, SnonServingCell,x is the Srxlev-value of an evaluated cell. For UTRAN FDD, Squal is higher than 0, as defined in [8]. For cdma2000 RATs, SnonServingCell,x is equal to -FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured from the evaluated cell.

For cdma2000 RATs, Threshx, high and Threshx, low are equal to -1 times the values signalled for the corresponding parameters in the system information.

In all the above criteria the value of TreselectionRAT is scaled when the UE is in the medium or high mobility state as defined in subclause 5.2.4.3.1. If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells meeting the criteria on the highest priority frequencies or the highest priority RAT if the highest priority RAT is E-UTRA according to criteria defined in 5.2.4.6.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.8.3]

The UE shall:

1> delay the following actions defined in this sub-clause 60 ms from the moment the RRCConnectionRelease message was received or optionally when lower layers indicate that the receipt of the RRCConnectionRelease message has been successfully acknowledged, whichever is earlier;

1> if the RRCConnectionRelease message includes the idleModeMobilityControlInfo:

2> store the cell reselection priority information provided by the idleModeMobilityControlInfo;

2> if the t320 is included:

3> start timer T320, with the timer value set according to the value of t320;

1> else:

2> apply the cell reselection priority information broadcast in the system information;

1> if the releaseCause received in the RRCConnectionRelease message indicates ‘loadBalancingTAURequired‘:

2> perform the actions upon leaving RRC_CONNECTED as specified in 5.3.12, with release cause ‘load balancing TAU required’;

1> else:

2> perform the actions upon leaving RRC_CONNECTED as specified in 5.3.12, with release cause ‘other’;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.8.4]

The UE shall:

1> if T320 expires:

2> if stored, discard the cell reselection priority information provided by the idleModeMobilityControlInfo or inherited from another RAT;

2> apply the cell reselection priority information broadcast in the system information;

When the UE in camped normally state, has only dedicated priorities other than for the current frequency, the UE shall consider the current frequency to be the lowest priority frequency (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values). While the UE is camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall always consider the current frequency to be the highest priority frequency (i.e. higher than the eight network configured values), irrespective of any other priority value allocated to this frequency. The UE shall delete priorities provided by dedicated signalling when:

– the UE enters RRC_CONNECTED state; or

– the optional validity time of dedicated priorities (T320) expires; or

– a PLMN selection is performed on request by NAS [5].

NOTE: Equal priorities between RATs are not supported.

The UE shall only perform cell reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies that are given in system information and for which the UE has a priority provided.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.2]

Following rules are used by the UE to limit needed measurements:

– If Sintrasearch is sent in the serving cell and SServingCell > Sintrasearch, UE may choose to not perform intra-frequency measurements.

– If SServingCell <= Sintrasearch, or Sintrasearch is not sent in the serving cell UE shall perform intra-frequency measurements.

– The UE shall apply the following rules for E-UTRAN inter-frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies which are indicated in system information and for which the UE has priority provided as defined in 5.2.4.1:

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequency with a reselection priority higher than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency the UE shall perform measurements of higher priority E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequencies according to [10].

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency with an equal or lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency and for inter-RAT frequency with lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRAN frequency:

– If Snonintrasearch is sent in the serving cell and SServingCell > Snonintrasearch UE may choose not to perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority.

– If SServingCell <= Snonintrasearch or Snonintrasearch is not sent in the serving cell the UE shall perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority according to [10].

Where SServingCell is the Srxlev-value of the serving cell.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

If ThreshX-Q is provided, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, HighQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

If ThreshX-Q is provided, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, LowQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Srxlev < ThreshServing, LowP and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a higher priority RAT/ frequency shall take precedence over a lower priority RAT/ frequency, if multiple cells of different priorities fulfil the cell reselection criteria.

For cdma2000 RATs, Srxlev is equal to -FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured from the evaluated cell.

For cdma2000 RATs, ThreshX, HighP and ThreshX, LowP are equal to -1 times the values signalled for the corresponding parameters in the system information.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5]

If the SServingCellof the E-UTRA serving cell is greater than Snonintrasearch, then the UE shall search for inter-RAT layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is described in section 4.2.2.

If the SServingCellof the E-UTRA serving cell is less than or equal to Snonintrasearchthen the UE shall search for and measure inter-RAT layers of higher, lower priority in preparation for possible reselection. In this scenario, the minimum rate at which the UE is required to search for and measure higher priority inter-RAT layers shall be the same as that defined below for lower priority RATs.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5.4]

In order to perform measurement and cell reselection to HRPD cell, the UE shall acquire the timing of HRPD cells.

When the measurement rules indicate that HRPD cells are to be measured, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 HRPD Pilot Strength of HRPD cells in the neighbour cell list at the minimum measurement rate specified in this section.

The parameter ‘Number of HRPD Neighbour Frequency’, which is transmitted on E-UTRAN BCCH, is the number of carriers used for all HRPD cells in the neighbour cell list.

When the RSRP of the E-UTRA serving cell (or other cells on the same frequency layer) is lower than ‘HRPD Start Measuring E-UTRAN Rx Power Strength Threshold’ and HRPD is of lower priority than the currently selected E-UTRAN frequency layer, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 HRPD Pilot Strength of the HRPD cells at least every (Number of HRPD Neighbour Frequency)*TmeasureHRPD.

The UE shall be capable of evaluating that the HRPD cell has met cell reselection criterion defined in [1] within TevaluateHRPD.

6.2.3.7a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1, 5.2.4.2 and 5.2.4.5 and TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5 and 4.2.2.5.4.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1]

Absolute priorities of different E-UTRAN frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies may be provided to the UE in the system information, in the RRCConnectionRelease message, or by inheriting from another RAT at inter-RAT cell (re)selection. In the case of system information, an E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency may be listed without providing a priority (i.e. the field cellReselectionPriority is absent for that frequency). If priorities are provided in dedicated signalling, the UE shall ignore all the priorities provided in system information. If UE is in camped on any cell state, UE shall only apply the priorities provided by system information from current cell, and the UE preserves priorities provided by dedicated signalling unless specified otherwise. When the UE in camped normally state, has only dedicated priorities other than for the current frequency, the UE shall consider the current frequency to be the lowest priority frequency (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values). While the UE is camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall always consider the current frequency to be the highest priority frequency (i.e. higher than the eight network configured values), irrespective of any other priority value allocated to this frequency. The UE shall delete priorities provided by dedicated signalling when:

  • the UE enters RRC_CONNECTED state; or
  • the optional validity time of dedicated priorities (T320) expires; or
  • a PLMN selection is performed on request by NAS [5].

NOTE: Equal priorities between RATs are not supported.

The UE shall only perform cell reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies that are given in system information and for which the UE has a priority provided.

The UE shall not consider any black listed cells as candidate for cell reselection.

The UE shall inherit the priorities provided by dedicated signalling and the remaining validity time (i.e., T320 in E-UTRA, T322 in UTRA and T3230 in GERAN), if configured, at inter-RAT cell (re)selection.

NOTE: The network may assign dedicated cell reselection priorities for frequencies not configured by system information.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.2]

When evaluating Srxlev and Squal of non-serving cells for reselection purposes, the UE shall use parameters provided by the serving cell.

Following rules are used by the UE to limit needed measurements:

– If the serving cell fulfils Srxlev > SIntraSearchP and Squal > SIntraSearchQ, the UE may choose not to perform intra-frequency measurements.

– Otherwise, the UE shall perform intra-frequency measurements.

– The UE shall apply the following rules for E-UTRAN inter-frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies which are indicated in system information and for which the UE has priority provided as defined in 5.2.4.1:

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequency with a reselection priority higher than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency the UE shall perform measurements of higher priority E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequencies according to [10].

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency with an equal or lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency and for inter-RAT frequency with lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRAN frequency:

– If the serving cell fulfils Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ, the UE may choose not to perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority.

– Otherwise, the UE shall perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority according to [10].

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, HighQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

– A cell of a higher priority UTRAN TDD, GERAN or CDMA2000 RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, LowQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority UTRAN TDD, GERAN or CDMA2000 RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Srxlev < ThreshServing, LowP and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a higher priority RAT/ frequency shall take precedence over a lower priority RAT/ frequency, if multiple cells of different priorities fulfil the cell reselection criteria.

For cdma2000 RATs, Srxlev is equal to -FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured from the evaluated cell.

For cdma2000 RATs, ThreshX, HighP and ThreshX, LowP are equal to -1 times the values signalled for the corresponding parameters in the system information.

In all the above criteria the value of TreselectionRAT is scaled when the UE is in the medium or high mobility state as defined in subclause 5.2.4.3.1. If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect a cell as follows:

– If the highest-priority frequency is an E-UTRAN frequency, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria according to section 5.2.4.6;

– If the highest-priority frequency is from another RAT, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria of that RAT.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5]

If Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for inter-RAT layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is described in section 4.2.2

If Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for and measure inter-RAT layers of higher, lower priority in preparation for possible reselection. In this scenario, the minimum rate at which the UE is required to search for and measure higher priority inter-RAT layers shall be the same as that defined below for lower priority RATs.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5.4]

In order to perform measurement and cell reselection to HRPD cell, the UE shall acquire the timing of HRPD cells.

When the measurement rules indicate that HRPD cells are to be measured, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 HRPD Pilot Strength of HRPD cells in the neighbour cell list at the minimum measurement rate specified in this section.

The parameter ‘Number of HRPD Neighbour Frequency’, which is transmitted on E-UTRAN BCCH, is the number of carriers used for all HRPD cells in the neighbour cell list.

When the E-UTRA serving cell fulfils Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ, the UE shall search for CDMA2000 HRPD layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is defined in section 4.2.2.

For CDMA2000 HRPD cells which have been detected, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 HRPD Pilot Strength at least every (Number of HRPD Neighbour Frequency)*TmeasureHRPD, when the E-UTRA serving cell Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ.

The UE shall be capable of evaluating that the CDMA2000 HRPD cell has met cell reselection criterion defined in [1] within TevaluateHRPD.

Table 4.2.2.5.4-1 gives values of TmeasureHRPD and TevaluateHRPD.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1]

Absolute priorities of different E-UTRAN frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies may be provided to the UE in the system information or in the RRC message releasing the RRC connection. If priorities are assigned via dedicated signalling, the UE shall ignore all the priorities provided in system information. The UE shall delete priorities provided by dedicated signalling when:

NOTE: Equal priorities between RATs are not supported.

UE shall only perform reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies that are given in system information and for which the UE has a priority provided.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.2]

Following rules are used by the UE to limit needed measurements:

– If SServingCell > Sintrasearch, UE may choose to not perform intra-frequency measurements.

– If SServingCell <= Sintrasearch, UE shall perform intra-frequency measurements.

– The UE shall apply the following rules for E-UTRAN inter-frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies which are indicated in system information and for which the UE has priority provided as defined in 5.2.4.1:

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequency with a reselection priority higher than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency the UE shall perform measurements of higher priority E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequencies according to [10].

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency with a equal or lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency and for inter-RAT frequency with lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRAN frequency:

– If SServingCell > Snonintrasearch UE may choose not to perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies of equal or lower priority.

– If SServingCell <= Snonintrasearch the UE shall perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies cells of equal or lower priority according to [10].

Where SServingCell is the Srxlev-value of the serving cell.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

If ThreshX-Q is provided, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, HighQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

If ThreshX-Q is provided, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, LowQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Srxlev < ThreshServing, LowP and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a higher priority RAT/ frequency shall take precedence over a lower priority RAT/ frequency, if multiple cells of different priorities fulfil the cell reselection criteria.

For cdma2000 RATs, Srxlev is equal to -FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured from the evaluated cell.

For cdma2000 RATs, ThreshX, HighP and ThreshX, LowP are equal to -1 times the values signalled for the corresponding parameters in the system information.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5]

If the SServingCellof the E-UTRA serving cell (or other cells on the same frequency layer) is greater than Snonintrasearch, then

– the UE may not search for, or measure inter-RAT layers of equal or lower priority.

– the UE shall search for inter-RAT layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is described in section 4.2.2.

If the SServingCellof the E-UTRA serving cell is less than or equal to Snonintrasearch, then the UE shall search for and measure inter-RAT layers of higher, equal or lower priority in preparation for possible reselection. In this scenario, the minimum rate at which the UE is required to search for and measure such layers is not reduced and shall be the same as that defined below for lower priority RATs.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5.4]

In order to perform measurement and cell reselection to HRPD cell, the UE shall acquire the timing of HRPD cells.

When the measurement rules indicate that HRPD cells are to be measured, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 HRPD Pilot Strength of HRPD cells in the neighbour cell list at the minimum measurement rate specified in this section.

The parameter ‘Number of HRPD Neighbour Frequency’, which is transmitted on E-UTRAN BCCH, is the number of carriers used for all HRPD cells in the neighbour cell list.

When the RSRP of the E-UTRA serving cell (or other cells on the same frequency layer) is lower than ‘HRPD Start Measuring E-UTRAN Rx Power Strength Threshold’ and HRPD is of lower priority than the currently selected E-UTRAN frequency layer, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 HRPD Pilot Strength of the HRPD cells at least every (Number of HRPD Neighbour Frequency)*TmeasureHRPD. In case HRPD is of higher priority than the currently selected E-UTRAN frequency layer the UE shall measure HRPD cells at least every (Number of HRPD Neighbour Frequency)* Thigher_proirty_search. The parameter Thigher_proirty_search is defined in section 4.2.2.

The UE shall be capable of evaluating that the HRPD cell has met cell reselection criterion defined in [1] within TevaluateHRPD.

6.2.3.8a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1, 5.2.4.2 and 5.2.4.5 and TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5 and 4.2.2.5.4.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1]

Absolute priorities of different E-UTRAN frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies may be provided to the UE in the system information, in the RRCConnectionRelease message, or by inheriting from another RAT at inter-RAT cell (re)selection. In the case of system information, an E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency may be listed without providing a priority (i.e. the field cellReselectionPriority is absent for that frequency). If priorities are provided in dedicated signalling, the UE shall ignore all the priorities provided in system information. If UE is in camped on any cell state, UE shall only apply the priorities provided by system information from current cell, and the UE preserves priorities provided by dedicated signalling unless specified otherwise. When the UE in camped normally state, has only dedicated priorities other than for the current frequency, the UE shall consider the current frequency to be the lowest priority frequency (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values). While the UE is camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall always consider the current frequency to be the highest priority frequency (i.e. higher than the eight network configured values), irrespective of any other priority value allocated to this frequency. The UE shall delete priorities provided by dedicated signalling when:

– the UE enters RRC_CONNECTED state; or

– the optional validity time of dedicated priorities (T320) expires; or

– a PLMN selection is performed on request by NAS [5].

NOTE: Equal priorities between RATs are not supported.

The UE shall only perform cell reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies that are given in system information and for which the UE has a priority provided.

The UE shall not consider any black listed cells as candidate for cell reselection.

The UE shall inherit the priorities provided by dedicated signalling and the remaining validity time (i.e., T320 in E-UTRA, T322 in UTRA and T3230 in GERAN), if configured, at inter-RAT cell (re)selection.

NOTE: The network may assign dedicated cell reselection priorities for frequencies not configured by system information.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.2]

When evaluating Srxlev and Squal of non-serving cells for reselection purposes, the UE shall use parameters provided by the serving cell.

Following rules are used by the UE to limit needed measurements:

– If the serving cell fulfils Srxlev > SIntraSearchP and Squal > SIntraSearchQ, the UE may choose not to perform intra-frequency measurements.

– Otherwise, the UE shall perform intra-frequency measurements.

– The UE shall apply the following rules for E-UTRAN inter-frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies which are indicated in system information and for which the UE has priority provided as defined in 5.2.4.1:

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequency with a reselection priority higher than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency the UE shall perform measurements of higher priority E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequencies according to [10].

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency with an equal or lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency and for inter-RAT frequency with lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRAN frequency:

– If the serving cell fulfils Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ, the UE may choose not to perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority.

– Otherwise, the UE shall perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority according to [10].

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, HighQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

– A cell of a higher priority UTRAN TDD, GERAN or CDMA2000 RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, LowQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority UTRAN TDD, GERAN or CDMA2000 RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Srxlev < ThreshServing, LowP and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a higher priority RAT/ frequency shall take precedence over a lower priority RAT/ frequency, if multiple cells of different priorities fulfil the cell reselection criteria.

For cdma2000 RATs, Srxlev is equal to -FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured from the evaluated cell.

For cdma2000 RATs, ThreshX, HighP and ThreshX, LowP are equal to -1 times the values signalled for the corresponding parameters in the system information.

In all the above criteria the value of TreselectionRAT is scaled when the UE is in the medium or high mobility state as defined in subclause 5.2.4.3.1. If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect a cell as follows:

– If the highest-priority frequency is an E-UTRAN frequency, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria according to section 5.2.4.6;

– If the highest-priority frequency is from another RAT, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria of that RAT.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5]

If Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for inter-RAT layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is described in section 4.2.2

If Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for and measure inter-RAT layers of higher, lower priority in preparation for possible reselection. In this scenario, the minimum rate at which the UE is required to search for and measure higher priority inter-RAT layers shall be the same as that defined below for lower priority RATs.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5.4]

In order to perform measurement and cell reselection to HRPD cell, the UE shall acquire the timing of HRPD cells.

When the measurement rules indicate that HRPD cells are to be measured, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 HRPD Pilot Strength of HRPD cells in the neighbour cell list at the minimum measurement rate specified in this section.

The parameter ‘Number of HRPD Neighbour Frequency’, which is transmitted on E-UTRAN BCCH, is the number of carriers used for all HRPD cells in the neighbour cell list.

When the E-UTRA serving cell fulfils Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ, the UE shall search for CDMA2000 HRPD layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is defined in section 4.2.2.

For CDMA2000 HRPD cells which have been detected, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 HRPD Pilot Strength at least every (Number of HRPD Neighbour Frequency)*TmeasureHRPD, when the E-UTRA serving cell Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ.

The UE shall be capable of evaluating that the CDMA2000 HRPD cell has met cell reselection criterion defined in [1] within TevaluateHRPD.

Table 4.2.2.5.4-1 gives values of TmeasureHRPD and TevaluateHRPD.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1]

Absolute priorities of different E-UTRAN frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies may be provided to the UE in the system information, in the RRCConnectionRelease message, or by inheriting from another RAT at inter-RAT cell (re)selection. In the case of system information, an E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency may be listed without providing a priority (i.e. the field cellReselectionPriority is absent for that frequency). If priorities are provided in dedicated signalling, the UE shall ignore all the priorities provided in system information. If UE is in camped on any cell state, UE shall only apply the priorities provided by system information from current cell, and the UE preserves priorities provided by dedicated signalling unless specified otherwise. When the UE in camped normally state, has only dedicated priorities other than for the current frequency, the UE shall consider the current frequency to be the lowest priority frequency (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values). While the UE is camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall always consider the current frequency to be the highest priority frequency (i.e. higher than the eight network configured values), irrespective of any other priority value allocated to this frequency. The UE shall delete priorities provided by dedicated signalling when:

– the UE enters RRC_CONNECTED state; or

– the optional validity time of dedicated priorities (T320) expires; or

– a PLMN selection is performed on request by NAS [5].

NOTE: Equal priorities between RATs are not supported.

The UE shall only perform cell reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies that are given in system information and for which the UE has a priority provided.

The UE shall not consider any black listed cells as candidate for cell reselection.

The UE shall inherit the priorities provided by dedicated signalling and the remaining validity time (i.e., T320 in E-UTRA, T322 in UTRA and T3230 in GERAN), if configured, at inter-RAT cell (re)selection.

NOTE: The network may assign dedicated cell reselection priorities for frequencies not configured by system information.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

If ThreshX-Q is provided, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, HighQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

If ThreshX-Q is provided, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, LowQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Srxlev < ThreshServing, LowP and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a higher priority RAT/ frequency shall take precedence over a lower priority RAT/ frequency, if multiple cells of different priorities fulfil the cell reselection criteria.

For cdma2000 RATs, Srxlev is equal to -FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured from the evaluated cell.

For cdma2000 RATs, ThreshX, HighP and ThreshX, LowP are equal to -1 times the values signalled for the corresponding parameters in the system information.

In all the above criteria the value of TreselectionRAT is scaled when the UE is in the medium or high mobility state as defined in subclause 5.2.4.3.1. If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect a cell as follows:

– If the highest-priority frequency is an E-UTRAN frequency, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria according to section 5.2.4.6;

– If the highest-priority frequency is from another RAT, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria of that RAT.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5]

If Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for inter-RAT layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is described in section 4.2.2

If Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for and measure inter-RAT layers of higher, lower priority in preparation for possible reselection. In this scenario, the minimum rate at which the UE is required to search for and measure higher priority inter-RAT layers shall be the same as that defined below for lower priority RATs.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5.5]

In order to perform measurement and cell reselection to cdma2000 1X cell, the UE shall acquire the timing of cdma2000 1X cells.

When the measurement rules indicate that cdma2000 1X cells are to be measured, the UE shall measure cdma2000 1x RTT Pilot Strength of cdma2000 1X cells in the neighbour cell list at the minimum measurement rate specified in this section.

The parameter ‘Number of CDMA2000 1X Neighbour Frequency’, which is transmitted on E-UTRAN BCCH, is the number of carriers used for all cdma2000 1X cells in the neighbour cell list.

If SServingCell of the E-UTRA serving cell is greater than Snonintrasearch, the UE shall search for cdma2000 1X layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is defined in section 4.2.2.

For CDMA2000 1X cells which have been detected, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 1xRTT Pilot Strength at least every (Number of CDMA2000 1X Neighbour Frequency)*TmeasureCDMA2000_1X, when the SServingCell of the E-UTRA serving cell is less than or equal to Snonintrasearch.

The UE shall be capable of evaluating that the cdma2000 1X cell has met cell reselection criterion defined in [1] within TevaluateCDMA2000_1X.

Table 4.2.2.5.5-1 gives values of TmeasureCDMA2000_1X and TevaluateCDMA2000_1X.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1]

Absolute priorities of different E-UTRAN frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies may be provided to the UE in the system information, in the RRCConnectionRelease message, or by inheriting from another RAT at inter-RAT cell (re)selection. In the case of system information, an E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency may be listed without providing a priority (i.e. the field cellReselectionPriority is absent for that frequency). If priorities are provided in dedicated signalling, the UE shall ignore all the priorities provided in system information.

If UE is in camped on any cell state, UE shall only apply the priorities provided by system information from current cell, and the UE preserves priorities provided by dedicated signalling unless specified otherwise. When the UE in camped normally state, has only dedicated priorities other than for the current frequency, the UE shall consider the current frequency to be the lowest priority frequency (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values). While the UE is camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall always consider the current frequency to be the highest priority frequency (i.e. higher than the eight network configured values), irrespective of any other priority value allocated to this frequency. The UE shall delete priorities provided by dedicated signalling when:

– the UE enters RRC_CONNECTED state; or

– the optional validity time of dedicated priorities (T320) expires; or

– a PLMN selection is performed on request by NAS [5].

NOTE: Equal priorities between RATs are not supported.

The UE shall only perform cell reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies that are given in system information and for which the UE has a priority provided.

The UE shall not consider any black listed cells as candidate for cell reselection.

The UE shall inherit the priorities provided by dedicated signalling and the remaining validity time (i.e., T320 in E-UTRA, T322 in UTRA and T3230 in GERAN), if configured, at inter-RAT cell (re)selection.

NOTE: The network may assign dedicated cell reselection priorities for frequencies not configured by system information.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

If ThreshX-Q is provided, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, HighQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

If ThreshX-Q is provided, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, LowQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Srxlev < ThreshServing, LowP and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a higher priority RAT/ frequency shall take precedence over a lower priority RAT/ frequency, if multiple cells of different priorities fulfil the cell reselection criteria.

For cdma2000 RATs, Srxlev is equal to -FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured from the evaluated cell.

For cdma2000 RATs, ThreshX, HighP and ThreshX, LowP are equal to -1 times the values signalled for the corresponding parameters in the system information.

In all the above criteria the value of TreselectionRAT is scaled when the UE is in the medium or high mobility state as defined in subclause 5.2.4.3.1. If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect a cell as follows:

– If the highest-priority frequency is an E-UTRAN frequency, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria according to section 5.2.4.6;

– If the highest-priority frequency is from another RAT, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria of that RAT.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5]

If the SServingCellof the E-UTRA serving cell (or other cells on the same frequency layer) is greater than Snonintrasearch, then

– the UE may not search for, or measure inter-RAT layers of equal or lower priority.

– the UE shall search for inter-RAT layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is described in section 4.2.2.

If the SServingCellof the E-UTRA serving cell is less than or equal to Snonintrasearch, then the UE shall search for and measure inter-RAT layers of higher, equal or lower priority in preparation for possible reselection. In this scenario, the minimum rate at which the UE is required to search for and measure such layers is not reduced and shall be the same as that defined below for lower priority RATs.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5]

If Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for inter-RAT layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is described in section 4.2.2

If Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for and measure inter-RAT layers of higher, lower priority in preparation for possible reselection. In this scenario, the minimum rate at which the UE is required to search for and measure higher priority inter-RAT layers shall be the same as that defined below for lower priority RATs.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5.5]

In order to perform measurement and cell reselection to cdma2000 1X cell, the UE shall acquire the timing of cdma2000 1X cells.

When the measurement rules indicate that cdma2000 1X cells are to be measured, the UE shall measure cdma2000 1x RTT Pilot Strength of cdma2000 1X cells in the neighbour cell list at the minimum measurement rate specified in this section.

The parameter ‘Number of CDMA2000 1X Neighbour Frequency’, which is transmitted on E-UTRAN BCCH, is the number of carriers used for all cdma2000 1X cells in the neighbour cell list.

If SServingCell of the E-UTRA serving cell is greater than Snonintrasearch, the UE shall search for cdma2000 1X layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is defined in section 4.2.2.

For CDMA2000 1X cells which have been detected, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 1xRTT Pilot Strength at least every (Number of CDMA2000 1X Neighbour Frequency)*TmeasureCDMA2000_1X, when the SServingCell of the E-UTRA serving cell is less than or equal to Snonintrasearch.

The UE shall be capable of evaluating that the cdma2000 1X cell has met cell reselection criterion defined in [1] within TevaluateCDMA2000_1X.

Table 4.2.2.5.5-1 gives values of TmeasureCDMA2000_1X and TevaluateCDMA2000_1X.

6.2.3.10a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1, 5.2.4.2 and 5.2.4.5 and TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5 and 4.2.2.5.4.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.1]

Absolute priorities of different E-UTRAN frequencies or inter-RAT frequencies may be provided to the UE in the system information, in the RRCConnectionRelease message, or by inheriting from another RAT at inter-RAT cell (re)selection. In the case of system information, an E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency may be listed without providing a priority (i.e. the field cellReselectionPriority is absent for that frequency). If priorities are provided in dedicated signalling, the UE shall ignore all the priorities provided in system information. If UE is in camped on any cell state, UE shall only apply the priorities provided by system information from current cell, and the UE preserves priorities provided by dedicated signalling unless specified otherwise. When the UE in camped normally state, has only dedicated priorities other than for the current frequency, the UE shall consider the current frequency to be the lowest priority frequency (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values). While the UE is camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall always consider the current frequency to be the highest priority frequency (i.e. higher than the eight network configured values), irrespective of any other priority value allocated to this frequency. The UE shall delete priorities provided by dedicated signalling when:

– the UE enters RRC_CONNECTED state; or

– the optional validity time of dedicated priorities (T320) expires; or

– a PLMN selection is performed on request by NAS [5].

NOTE: Equal priorities between RATs are not supported.

The UE shall only perform cell reselection evaluation for E-UTRAN frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies that are given in system information and for which the UE has a priority provided.

The UE shall not consider any black listed cells as candidate for cell reselection.

The UE shall inherit the priorities provided by dedicated signalling and the remaining validity time (i.e., T320 in E-UTRA, T322 in UTRA and T3230 in GERAN), if configured, at inter-RAT cell (re)selection.

NOTE: The network may assign dedicated cell reselection priorities for frequencies not configured by system information.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, HighQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

– A cell of a higher priority UTRAN TDD, GERAN or CDMA2000 RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, HighP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

  • More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a cell on an equal priority E-UTRAN frequency shall be based on ranking for Intra-frequency cell reselection as defined in sub-clause 5.2.4.6.

If threshServingLowQ is provided in SystemInformationBlockType3, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority EUTRAN or UTRAN FDD RAT/ frequency fulfils Squal > ThreshX, LowQ during a time interval TreselectionRAT; or

– The serving cell fulfils Squal < ThreshServing, LowQ and a cell of a lower priority UTRAN TDD, GERAN or CDMA2000 RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Otherwise, cell reselection to a cell on a lower priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than the serving frequency shall be performed if:

– The serving cell fulfils Srxlev < ThreshServing, LowP and a cell of a lower priority RAT/ frequency fulfils Srxlev > ThreshX, LowP during a time interval TreselectionRAT; and

– More than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

Cell reselection to a higher priority RAT/ frequency shall take precedence over a lower priority RAT/ frequency, if multiple cells of different priorities fulfil the cell reselection criteria.

For cdma2000 RATs, Srxlev is equal to -FLOOR(-2 x 10 x log10 Ec/Io) in units of 0.5 dB, as defined in [18], with Ec/Io referring to the value measured from the evaluated cell.

For cdma2000 RATs, ThreshX, HighP and ThreshX, LowP are equal to -1 times the values signalled for the corresponding parameters in the system information.

In all the above criteria the value of TreselectionRAT is scaled when the UE is in the medium or high mobility state as defined in subclause 5.2.4.3.1. If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect a cell as follows:

– If the highest-priority frequency is an E-UTRAN frequency, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria according to section 5.2.4.6;

– If the highest-priority frequency is from another RAT, a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells on the highest priority frequency(ies) meeting the criteria of that RAT.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5]

If Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for inter-RAT layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is described in section 4.2.2

If Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ then the UE shall search for and measure inter-RAT layers of higher, lower priority in preparation for possible reselection. In this scenario, the minimum rate at which the UE is required to search for and measure higher priority inter-RAT layers shall be the same as that defined below for lower priority RATs.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5.5]

In order to perform measurement and cell reselection to cdma2000 1X cell, the UE shall acquire the timing of cdma2000 1X cells.

When the measurement rules indicate that cdma2000 1X cells are to be measured, the UE shall measure cdma2000 1x RTT Pilot Strength of cdma2000 1X cells in the neighbour cell list at the minimum measurement rate specified in this section.

The parameter ‘Number of CDMA2000 1X Neighbour Frequency’, which is transmitted on E-UTRAN BCCH, is the number of carriers used for all cdma2000 1X cells in the neighbour cell list.

When the E-UTRA serving cell fulfils Srxlev > SnonIntraSearchP and Squal > SnonIntraSearchQ, the UE shall search for cdma2000 1X layers of higher priority at least every Thigher_priority_search where Thigher_priority_search is defined in section 4.2.2.

For CDMA2000 1X cells which have been detected, the UE shall measure CDMA2000 1xRTT Pilot Strength at least every (Number of CDMA2000 1X Neighbour Frequency)*TmeasureCDMA2000_1X, when the E-UTRA serving cell Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ. The UE shall be capable of evaluating that the cdma2000 1X cell has met cell reselection criterion defined in [1] within TevaluateCDMA2000_1X.

6.2.3.13.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a and 5.2.6.1.4a; TS 25.331, clause 8.3.3.3 and 8.6.7.23; TS 36.331, clause 5.3.3.4; TS 25.133, clause 4.2.2.5a

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a]

If the UE has received absolute priority information for inter-RAT layers, the UE shall follow these rules:

– The UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers with a priority higher than the priority of the current serving cell.

NOTE: The rate of these measurements may vary depending on whether Srxlev and Squal of the serving cell are above or below Sprioritysearch1 and Sprioritysearch2. This is specified in [10].

– For inter-RAT layers with a priority lower than the priority of the current serving cell:

– If SrxlevServingCell > Sprioritysearch1 and SqualServingCell > Sprioritysearch2 the UE may choose not to perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

– If SrxlevServingCell <= Sprioritysearch1 or SqualServingCell <= Sprioritysearch2 the UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.4a]

Absolute priorities of different absolute priority layers may be provided to the UE. The following cell reselection criteria are used for inter-frequency cells if absolute priority information for inter-frequency is available to the UE, and inter-RAT cells if absolute priority information for inter-RAT is available to the UE.

The UE shall inherit the priorities provided by dedicated signalling and the remaining validity time (i.e., T320 in E-UTRA, T322 in UTRA and [T3230, FFS] in GERAN), if configured, at inter-RAT cell (re)selection.

The following definitions apply:

– Criterion 1: the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated higher absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,high during a time interval Treselection;

– Criterion 3: SrxlevServingCell < Threshserving,low or SqualServingCell < 0 and the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated lower absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,low during a time interval Treselection;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 1 is fulfilled.

Cell reselection to a cell on a lower absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 3 is fulfilled.

If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect the cell with the highest SrxlevnonServingCell,x among the cells meeting the criteria on the highest absolute priority layer.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection to cells for which the cell selection criterion S is not fulfilled.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection until more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

[TS 25.331, clause 8.3.3.3]

When the UE receives a UTRAN MOBILITY INFORMATION message, it shall:

1> act on received information elements as specified in subclause 8.6;

1> if the IE "Dedicated Priority Information" is present:

2> act upon the received IE as described in subclause 8.6.7.23.

[TS 25.331, clause 8.6.7.23]

If the CHOICE "Action" has the value "Configure dedicated priorities", the UE shall:

1> clear the variable PRIORITY_INFO_LIST;

1> stop timer T322, if it is running;

1> set the value of IE "Priority status" in the variable PRIORITY_INFO_LIST to "dedicated_priority";

1> for each occurrence of the IE "Priority Level List":

2> create a new entry in the IE "Priority Info List" in the variable PRIORITY_INFO_LIST, and in that new entry:

3> set the CHOICE "Radio Access Technology" to the value received in the IE "Priority Level List";

3> set the IE "priority" to the value received in the IE "Priority Level List";

3> set the values in IE "Frequency List" or "BCCH ARFCN List" to the values received in the IE "Priority Level List".

1> set the IE "E-UTRA detection" to the value received in the IE "Priority Level List".

1> if the IE "T322" is present:

2> start timer T322 using the value signalled in this IE.

1> if the UE is not in CELL_DCH state:

2> take the actions as described in subclause 8.1.1.6.19 using stored System information Block type 19.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.3.4]

The UE shall:

1> perform the radio resource configuration procedure in accordance with the received radioResourceConfigDedicated and as specified in 5.3.10;

1> if stored, discard the cell reselection priority information provided by the idleModeMobilityControlInfo or inherited from another RAT;

1> stop timer T300;

1> stop timer T302, if running;

1> stop timer T303, if running;

1> stop timer T305, if running;

1> perform the actions as specified in 5.3.3.7;

1> stop timer T320, if running;

1> enter RRC_CONNECTED;

1> stop the cell re-selection procedure;

1> set the content of RRCConnectionSetupComplete message as follows:

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

[TS 25.133, clause 4.2.2.5a]

The UE shall be able to evaluate whether a new detectable lower priority inter-RAT E-UTRA cell meets the reselection criteria defined in [1] within Kcarrier * TdetectE-UTRA, where TdetectE-UTRA is given in Table 4.2, if E-UTRA carrier frequency information is provided in the inter-RAT measurement control system information when Treselection=0 provided that the reselection criteria is met by at least 6dB. The parameter Kcarrier is the number of E-UTRA carrier frequencies indicated in the inter-RAT measurement control system information. An inter RAT E-UTRAN cell is considered to be detectable if:

– RSRP|dBm according to Annex B.1.1 for a corresponding Band

For an inter-RAT E-UTRA cell that has been already detected, but that has not been reselected to, the filtering shall be such that the UE shall be capable of evaluating that the E-UTRA cell has met reselection criterion defined TS 36.304 within Kcarrier * TevaluateEUTRA as specified in table 4.2 provided that the reselection criteria is met by at least 6dB and the Treselection timer is set to zero.

6.2.3.14.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 45.008, clause 10.1.3.3 & TS 44.018, clause 3.4.1.2.1.1a.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.3.3]

Cell reselection to a cell of another inter-RAT frequency shall be performed if any of the conditions below (to be evaluated in the order shown) is satisfied:

– The S_non-serving_XXX of one or more cells of a higher priority inter-RAT frequency is greater than THRESH_XXX_high (or, in case of an E-UTRAN target, THRESH_E-UTRAN_high_Q, if provided) during a time interval T_reselection; in that case, the mobile station shall consider the cells for reselection in decreasing order of priority and, for cells of the same inter-RAT frequency or of inter-RAT frequencies of equal priority, in decreasing order of S_non-serving_XXX, and reselect the first cell that satisfies the conditions above;

If the mobile station applies either common priorities or individual priorities received through dedicated signalling and priorities are available only for some inter-RAT frequencies, cells belonging to frequencies for which no priority is available or no threshold is provided by the serving cell shall not be considered for measurement and for cell re-selection.

If a mobile station in camped normally state (see 3GPP TS 43.022) applies individual priorities received through dedicated signalling and no priority is available for the serving cell, the mobile station shall consider any GSM cell (including the serving cell) to have lowest priority (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values).

[TS 44.018, clause 3.4.1.2.1.1a]

This applies only to a multi-RAT MS supporting E-UTRAN. One or more instances of the Measurement Information message or SI2quater message may provide E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell Description information in one or more instances of the Repeated E-UTRAN Neighbour Cells IE. This is used to build the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list. The E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list may contain up to 8 E-UTRAN frequencies. For each E-UTRAN frequency, zero or more E-UTRAN neighbour cells may be specified that are not allowed for cell reselection. The list of not allowed cells is defined in the Not Allowed Cells IEs.

Each EARFCN in each instance of the Repeated E-UTRAN Neighbour Cells IE is added to the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list in the order in which it is received.

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 45.008, clause 10.1.3.3 & TS 44.018, clause 3.4.1.2.1.1a.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.3.3]

Cell reselection to a cell of another inter-RAT frequency shall be performed if any of the conditions below (to be evaluated in the order shown) is satisfied:

– The value of S_serving is lower than THRESH_serving_low for the serving cell and all measured GSM cells; in this case, the mobile station shall consider for reselection the inter-RAT cells in the following order, and reselect the first one that satisfies the following criteria:

– cells of a lower priority inter-RAT frequency whose S_non-serving_XXX is greater than THRESH_XXX_low during a time interval T_reselection; these cells shall be considered in decreasing order of priority and, for cells of the same RAT, in decreasing order of S_non-serving_XXX;

[TS 44.018, clause 3.4.1.2.1.1a]

This applies only to a multi-RAT MS supporting E-UTRAN. One or more instances of the Measurement Information message or SI2quater message may provide E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell Description information in one or more instances of the Repeated E-UTRAN Neighbour Cells IE. This is used to build the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list. The E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list may contain up to 8 E-UTRAN frequencies. For each E-UTRAN frequency, zero or more E-UTRAN neighbour cells may be specified that are not allowed for cell reselection. The list of not allowed cells is defined in the Not Allowed Cells IEs.

Each EARFCN in each instance of the Repeated E-UTRAN Neighbour Cells IE is added to the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list in the order in which it is received.

The CHANNEL RELEASE message may include Individual priorities IE to convey individual priorities information to the MS (see subclause 3.2.4). When the MS receives an Individual priorities IE it shall start an instance of timer T3230 with the value supplied in the Individual priorities IE.

If the network redirects a mobile station towards E-UTRAN, it proceeds as follows:

– The network shall use the information element “Cell selection indicator after release of all TCH and SDCCH” in the channel release message for redirection towards an EARFCN in the E-UTRAN band numbered less than 65.

– The network shall use the information element “individual priorities” in the channel release message for redirection towards an EARFCN in the E-UTRAN band numbered greater than 64.

[TS 45.008, clause 6.7.1]

In A/Gb mode, when the MS releases all TCHs or SDCCH and returns to idle mode, packet idle mode or MAC-Idle state, it shall, as quickly as possible, camp on the cell whose channel has just been released. Similarly in Iu mode, when the MS releases all DBPSCHs and returns to MAC-Idle state, it shall, as quickly as possible, camp on the cell whose channel has just been released. However, in both modes (A/Gb mode or Iu mode), if the CHANNEL RELEASE message contains a “cell selection indicator after release of all TCH and SDCCH” or “Individual priorities” (see TS 44.018), the MS shall as quickly as possible camp on an indicated GSM, UTRAN or E-UTRAN cell that has been identified by the CHANNEL RELEASE message. If UTRAN or E-UTRAN frequency only is indicated the MS shall as quickly as possible camp on a suitable cell of this frequency.

In case the “cell selection indicator after release of all TCHs and SDCCH” or “Individual priorities” is not present, then if the full (P)BCCH data for that cell was not decoded in the preceding 30s, the MS shall attempt to decode the full (P)BCCH data. Until the MS has decoded the (P)BCCH data required for determining the paging group, it shall also monitor all paging blocks on timeslot 0 of the BCCH carrier or, for GPRS if PCCCH exists and for Iu mode, on the PDCH indicated on BCCH for possible paging messages that might address it. If the MS receives a page before having decoded the full (P)BCCH data for the cell, the MS shall store the page and respond once the relevant (P)BCCH data has been decoded, provided that the cell is not barred and the MS’s access class is allowed. Reception of full BCCH(BA) information is not required before responding to the page.

If the CHANNEL RELEASE does not contain a “cell selection indicator after release of all TCH and SDCCH” or “Individual priorities”, and the MS has the knowledge that the cell whose channel is being released is not suitable (see 3GPP TS 43.022 [11]), the MS is allowed to camp on any suitable cell.

If the CHANNEL RELEASE contains a “cell selection indicator after release of all TCH and SDCCH” or “Individual priorities” and

– the MS cannot find a suitable cell from the indicated ones within 10 s, or

– none of the indicated cells are suitable,

the MS is allowed to camp on any suitable cell.

NOTE: The received signal level measurements on surrounding cells made during the last 5 seconds on the TCH or SDCCH in A/Gb mode, or on the DBPSCH in Iu mode, may be averaged and used, where possible, to speed up the process. However, it should be noted that the received signal level monitoring while on the TCH or SDCCH in A/Gb mode, or on the DBPSCH in Iu mode, is on carriers in BA (SACCH), while the carriers to be monitored for cell reselection are in BA (BCCH) or BA (GPRS).

After decoding the relevant (P)BCCH data the MS shall perform cell reselection as specified in 3GPP TS 43.022 [11].

with { UE in GPRS Registered state with active packet data transfer in NC0 mode }

ensure that {

when { UE detects the cell re-selection criteria are met for the cell which belongs to the higher priority inter-RAT E-UTRA cell}

then { UE reselects the cell which belongs to the higher priority inter-RAT E-UTRA cell }

}

6.2.3.21.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 45.008, clause 10.1.3.3 & TS 44.018, clause 3.4.1.2.1.1a.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.3.3]

The algorithm in this subclause shall be used for inter-RAT cell reselection if priority information is available to the MS and threshold information is provided by the network. The network shall provide priority information if E-UTRAN frequencies are included in the neighbour cell list. The mobile station may apply either priorities broadcast in system information or individual priorities received through dedicated signalling. The rules regarding which set of priorities shall apply are defined in 3GPP TS 44.018 and 3GPP TS 44.060.

NOTE: Throughout the specification, the phrase “neighbour cell list” will include also the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list and/or the GPRS E-UTRANNeighbour Cell list where appropriate.

If the GPRS 3G Cell Reselection list or the GPRS E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list include frequencies of other radio access technologies, the MS shall, at least every 5 seconds update the value RLA_P for the serving cell and each of the at least 6 strongest non serving GSM cells.

The MS shall then reselect a suitable (see 3GPP TS 25.304 for UTRAN and 3GPP TS 36.304 for E-UTRAN) cell of another radio access technology if the criteria below are satisfied. S_non-serving_XXX is the measurement quantity of a non-serving inter-RAT cell and XXX indicates the other radio access technology/mode. S_non-serving_XXX is defined in subclause 6.6.6.

Cell reselection to a cell of another inter-RAT frequency shall be performed if any of the conditions below (to be evaluated in the order shown) is satisfied:

– The S_non-serving_XXX of one or more cells of a higher priority inter-RAT frequency is greater than THRESH_XXX_high during a time interval T_reselection; in that case, the mobile station shall consider the cells for reselection in decreasing order of priority and, for cells of the same inter-RAT frequency, in decreasing order of S_non-serving_XXX, and reselect the first cell that satisfies the conditions above;

– The value of S_serving is lower than THRESH_serving_low for the serving cell and all measured GSM cells; in this case, the mobile station shall consider for reselection the inter-RAT cells in the following order, and reselect the first one that satisfies the following criteria:

– cells of a lower priority inter-RAT frequency whose S_non-serving_XXX is greater than THRESH_XXX_low during a time interval T_reselection; these cells shall be considered in decreasing order of priority and, for cells of the same RAT, in decreasing order of S_non-serving_XXX;

– if no cells satisfy the criterion above, inter-RAT cells for which, during a time interval T_reselection, S_non-serving_XXX is higher than S_serving by at least a specific hysteresis H_PRIO; these cells shall be considered in decreasing order of S_non-serving_XXX.

A UTRAN FDD cell shall only be reselected if, in addition to the criteria above, its measured Ec/No value is equal to or greater than FDD_Qmin – FDD_Qmin_Offset..

Cell reselection to a cell of another radio access technology (e.g. UTRAN or E-UTRAN) shall not occur within [5] seconds after the MS has reselected a GSM cell from an inter-RAT cell if a suitable GSM cell can be found.

If the mobile station applies individual priorities received through dedicated signalling and priority information is available only for some inter-RAT frequencies, cells belonging to frequencies for which no individual priority is available or no threshold is broadcast in system information shall not be considered for measurement and for cell re-selection.

If a mobile station in camped normally state (see 3GPP TS 43.022) applies individual priorities received through dedicated signalling and no priority is available for the serving cell, the mobile station shall consider any GSM cell (including the serving cell) to have lowest priority (i.e. lower than the eight network configured values).

A mobile station in camped on any cell state (see 3GPP TS 43.022) shall ignore individual priorities received through dedicated signalling and shall apply priorities received from the system information of the serving cell while attempting to find a suitable cell. If the mobile station supports CS voice services, the MS shall avoid reselecting acceptable (but not suitable) E-UTRA cells regardless of the priorities provided in system information.

NOTE: If the MS is camping on an acceptable cell, individual priorities are not discarded until an event leading to their deletion occurs.

In case of a reselection attempt towards a barred UTRAN cell, the MS shall abandon further reselection attempts towards this UTRAN cell as defined by the Tbarred value on the barred UTRAN cell (see 3GPP TS 25.331).

NOTE: It is FFS whether a similar requirement should be added in case of a reselection attempt towards a barred E-UTRAN cell.

NOTE: Requirements for cells belonging to “forbidden LAs for roaming” should be included here.

[TS 44.018, clause 3.4.1.2.1.1a]

This applies only to a multi-RAT MS supporting E-UTRAN. One or more instances of the Measurement Information message or SI2quater message may provide E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell Description information in one or more instances of the Repeated E-UTRAN Neighbour Cells IE. This is used to build the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list. The E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list may contain up to 8 E-UTRAN frequencies. For each E-UTRAN frequency, zero or more E-UTRAN neighbour cells may be specified that are not allowed for cell reselection. The list of not allowed cells is defined in the Not Allowed Cells IEs.

Each EARFCN in each instance of the Repeated E-UTRAN Neighbour Cells IE is added to the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list in the order in which it is received.

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 45.008 section 6.6.6, 10.1.3.3,10.1.4 and TS 44.060 section 5.5.1.1a.2 and 5.5.2.3

[TS 44.060, section 5.5.1.1a.2]

A mobile station, which has CCN Enabled, can enter CCN Mode.

The mobile station shall enable CCN when the following criteria are fulfilled:

– the mobile station is camping on a cell (see 3GPP TS 45.008); and

– the network indicates CCN ACTIVE/3G CCN ACTIVE/E-UTRAN CCN ACTIVE either in system information to all mobile stations in the cell or in an individual order to a certain mobile station; and

– the mobile station is neither in dedicated mode nor Dual Transfer Mode; and

– the mobile station is in NC0 or in NC1 mode; and

– the mobile station is in Packet Transfer mode.

The CCN procedures and the criteria for entering and leaving CCN mode are specified in sub-clauses 8.8.2 and 8.8.3.

[TS 45.008, section 6.6.6 and 10.1.3.3]

The algorithm in this subclause shall be used for inter-RAT cell reselection if priorities are available to the MS and thresholds are provided by the network, and if the mobile station supports priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection and priority information for the serving cell is provided by the network. A mobile station supporting E-UTRAN shall support priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection towards all the supported RATs. A mobile station not supporting E-UTRAN and supporting UTRAN and supporting priority based reselection from UTRAN to GERAN shall support priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection towards UTRAN

The network shall provide priority information if E-UTRAN frequencies are included in the neighbour cell list. If priority information is available to the mobile station and the mobile station supports priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection, the algorithm in this subclause shall be used for inter-RAT reselection towards all RATs.

If the 3G Cell Reselection list or the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list include frequencies of other radio access technologies, the MS shall, at least every 5 s update the value RLA_C for the serving cell and each of the at least 6 strongest non serving GSM cells.

The MS shall then reselect a suitable (see 3GPP TS 25.304 for UTRAN and 3GPP TS 36.304 for E-UTRAN) cell of another radio access technology if the criteria below are satisfied. S_non-serving_XXX is the measurement quantity of a non-serving inter-RAT cell and XXX indicates the other radio access technology/mode and is defined as follows:

– for a E-UTRAN cell, is the measured RSRP value for the cell minus E-UTRAN_QRXLEVMIN for the cell’s frequency if THRESH_E-UTRAN_high_Q is not provided; otherwise, if THRESH_E-UTRAN_high_Q is provided, is the measured RSRQ value for the cell minus E-UTRAN_QQUALMIN for the cell’s frequency.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4]

The network may request measurement reports from the MS and control its cell re‑selection. This is indicated by the parameter NETWORK_CONTROL_ORDER. The meaning of the different parameter values is specified as follows:

NC0 Normal MS control The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC1 MS control with measurement reports The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.
The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC2 Network control The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.

6.2.3.26.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 45.008 section 6.6.6, 10.1.3.3 and 10.1.4:

[TS 45.008, section 6.6.6 and 10.1.3.3]

The algorithm in this subclause shall be used for inter-RAT cell reselection if priorities are available to the MS and thresholds are provided by the network, and if the mobile station supports priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection and priority information for the serving cell is provided by the network. A mobile station supporting E-UTRAN shall support priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection towards all the supported RATs. A mobile station not supporting E-UTRAN and supporting UTRAN and supporting priority based reselection from UTRAN to GERAN shall support priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection towards UTRAN

The network shall provide priority information if E-UTRAN frequencies are included in the neighbour cell list. If priority information is available to the mobile station and the mobile station supports priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection, the algorithm in this subclause shall be used for inter-RAT reselection towards all RATs.

If the 3G Cell Reselection list or the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list include frequencies of other radio access technologies, the MS shall, at least every 5 s update the value RLA_C for the serving cell and each of the at least 6 strongest non serving GSM cells.

The MS shall then reselect a suitable (see 3GPP TS 25.304 for UTRAN and 3GPP TS 36.304 for E-UTRAN) cell of another radio access technology if the criteria below are satisfied. S_non-serving_XXX is the measurement quantity of a non-serving inter-RAT cell and XXX indicates the other radio access technology/mode and is defined as follows:

– for a E-UTRAN cell, is the measured RSRP value for the cell minus E-UTRAN_QRXLEVMIN for the cell’s frequency if THRESH_E-UTRAN_high_Q is not provided; otherwise, if THRESH_E-UTRAN_high_Q is provided, is the measured RSRQ value for the cell minus E-UTRAN_QQUALMIN for the cell’s frequency.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4]

The network may request measurement reports from the MS and control its cell re‑selection. This is indicated by the parameter NETWORK_CONTROL_ORDER. The meaning of the different parameter values is specified as follows:

NC0 Normal MS control The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC1 MS control with measurement reports The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.
The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC2 Network control The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.
The MS shall only perform autonomous cell re-selection when the reselection is triggered by a downlink signalling failure as defined in subclause 6.5 or a random access failure as defined in 3GPP TS 44.018 and 3GPP TS 44.060 or if the cell is barred or the C1 criterion falls below zero. The MS shall only determine whether the cell is barred once camped on the cell.

RESET The MS shall return to the broadcast parameters. Only sent on PCCCH or PACCH.

All signalling for support of network controlled cell re-selection and measurement reports are defined in 3GPP TS 44.060 section 5.5.1.1a.2 and 5.5.2.3.

6.2.3.27.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 45.008, clause 6.4, 10.1.4, 10.1.4.1 and 10.1.4.2, TS 44.018, clause 3.4.1.2.1.1a:

[TS 45.008, clause 6.4]

The path loss criterion parameter C1 used for cell selection and reselection is defined by:

C1 = (A ‑ Max(B,0))

where

A = RLA_C ‑ RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN
B = MS_TXPWR_MAX_CCH ‑ P

except for the class 3 DCS 1 800 MS where:

B = MS_TXPWR_MAX_CCH + POWER OFFSET ‑ P
RXLEV_ACCESS_MIN = Minimum received signal level at the MS required for access to the system.
MS_TXPWR_MAX_CCH = Maximum TX power level an MS may use when accessing the system until otherwise commanded.

POWER OFFSET = The power offset to be used in conjunction with the MS TXPWR
MAX CCH parameter by the class 3 DCS 1 800 MS.
P = Maximum RF output power of the MS.

All values are expressed in dBm.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4]

The network may request measurement reports from the MS and control its cell re‑selection. This is indicated by the parameter NETWORK_CONTROL_ORDER. The meaning of the different parameter values is specified as follows:

NC0 Normal MS control The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC1 MS control with measurement reports The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.
The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC2 Network control The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.
The MS shall only perform autonomous cell re-selection when the reselection is triggered by a downlink signalling failure as defined in subclause 6.5 or a random access failure as defined in 3GPP TS 44.018 and 3GPP TS 44.060 or if the cell is barred or the C1 criterion falls below zero. The MS shall only determine whether the cell is barred once camped on the cell.

RESET The MS shall return to the broadcast parameters. Only sent on PCCCH or PACCH.

A list given by Packet Cell Change Order applies in the new cell. This list may also include cells with other radio access technologies.

All signalling for support of network controlled cell re-selection and measurement reports are defined in 3GPP TS 44.060.

If the MS operates in NC2 mode, the following rules shall be applied:

– The network controls the measurements of UTRAN cells by the parameter Qsearch_P. The network controls the measurements of E-UTRAN cells by the parameter Qsearch_P_E-UTRAN.

– The network may control UTRAN measurements per individual UTRAN frequency by the parameters Measurement_Control_UTRAN and E-UTRAN measurements per individual E-UTRAN frequency by the parameters Measurement_Control_E-UTRAN.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4.1]

When ordered to send measurement reports, the MS shall continuously monitor all carriers in BA(GPRS) or as indicated by the parameter NC_FREQUENCY_LIST and the BCCH carrier of the serving cell. The measurement requirements are defined in subclause 10.1.1 for the actual packet mode

[TS 44.018, clause 3.4.1.2.1.1a]

This applies only to a multi-RAT MS supporting E-UTRAN. One or more instances of the Measurement Information message or SI2quater message may provide E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell Description information in one or more instances of the Repeated E-UTRAN Neighbour Cells IE. This is used to build the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list. The fast acquisition of system information procedure, as defined in subclause 3.4.1.2.1.11, shall be used to acquire E-UTRAN measurement parameters and neighbour cell information from SI2quater and MEASUREMENT INFORMATION.

– The network may control UTRAN measurements per individual UTRAN frequency by the parameters Measurement_Control_UTRAN and E-UTRAN measurements per individual E-UTRAN frequency by the parameters Measurement_Control_E-UTRAN.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4.1]

When ordered to send measurement reports, the MS shall continuously monitor all carriers in BA(GPRS) or as indicated by the parameter NC_FREQUENCY_LIST and the BCCH carrier of the serving cell. The measurement requirements are defined in subclause 10.1.1 for the actual packet mode

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4.2]

A cell re-selection command may be sent from the network to an MS. When the MS receives the command, it shall re-select the cell according to the included cell description and change the network control mode according to the command (see 3GPP TS 44.060). The command may include re-selection of another radio access technology/mode.

[TS 44.018, clause 3.4.1.2.1.1a]

This applies only to a multi-RAT MS supporting E-UTRAN. One or more instances of the Measurement Information message or SI2quater message may provide E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell Description information in one or more instances of the Repeated E-UTRAN Neighbour Cells IE. This is used to build the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list. The fast acquisition of system information procedure, as defined in subclause 3.4.1.2.1.11, shall be used to acquire E-UTRAN measurement parameters and neighbour cell information from SI2quater and MEASUREMENT INFORMATION.

6.2.3.29 Inter-RAT Cell reselection from GPRS packet_transfer to E-UTRA in CCN mode (PACKET MEASUREMENT ORDER)

6.2.3.29.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in GPRS packet_transfer state with active data transfer in NC1 mode }

ensure that {

when { UE with CCN enable detects E-UTRA cell, enters CCN mode, receives PACKET MEASUREMENT ORDER to enter NC2 and subsequently receives PACKET CELL CHANGE ORDER }

then { UE does not perform autonomous reselection, but performs cell change to E-UTRA cell only on receipt of PACKET CELL CHANGE ORDER }

}

6.2.3.29.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 45.008, clause 6.6.6, 10.1.4, 10.1.4.1, 10.1.4.2, TS 44.060 clause 5.5.1.1a.2, and TS 36.331 clause 5.4.6.2:

[TS 45.008, clause 6.6.6]

The algorithm in this subclause shall be used for inter-RAT cell reselection if priorities are available to the MS and thresholds are provided by the network, and if the mobile station supports priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection and priority information for the serving cell is provided by the network. A mobile station supporting E-UTRAN shall support priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection towards all the supported RATs. A mobile station not supporting E-UTRAN and supporting UTRAN and supporting priority based reselection from UTRAN to GERAN shall support priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection towards UTRAN.

The network shall provide priority information if E-UTRAN frequencies are included in the neighbour cell list; the network may provide priority information if only UTRAN frequencies are included in the neighbour cell list. If priority information is available to the mobile station and the mobile station supports priority based inter-RAT cell re-selection, the algorithm in this subclause shall be used for inter-RAT reselection towards all RATs. The rules regarding which set of priorities is valid at any given time are defined in 3GPP TS 44.018.

NOTE 1: “Priority information” includes priorities and thresholds which are related to each UTRAN or E-UTRAN frequency (e.g. UTRAN_PRIORITY, E-UTRAN_PRIORITY, THRESH_UTRAN_high, THRESH_E-UTRAN_high) and information related to the serving cell (e.g. GERAN_PRIORITY, THRESH_GSM_low).

NOTE 2: Throughout the specification, the phrase “neighbour cell list” will include also the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list where appropriate.

NOTE 3: Priorities need to be provided also for frequencies of networks that do not support priority-based cell reselection.

If the 3G Cell Reselection list or the E-UTRAN Neighbour Cell list include frequencies of other radio access technologies, the MS shall, at least every 5 s update the value RLA_C for the serving cell and each of the at least 6 strongest non serving GSM cells.

The MS shall then reselect a suitable (see 3GPP TS 25.304 for UTRAN and 3GPP TS 36.304 for E-UTRAN) cell of another radio access technology if the criteria below are satisfied. S_non-serving_XXX is the measurement quantity of a non-serving inter-RAT cell and XXX indicates the other radio access technology/mode and is defined as follows:

– for a UTRAN cell, is the measured RSCP value for the cell minus UTRAN_QRXLEVMIN for the cell’s frequency;

– for a E-UTRAN cell, is the measured RSRP value for the cell minus E-UTRAN_QRXLEVMIN for the cell’s frequency if THRESH_E-UTRAN_high_Q is not provided; otherwise, if THRESH_E-UTRAN_high_Q is provided, is the measured RSRQ value for the cell minus E-UTRAN_QQUALMIN for the cell’s frequency.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4]

The network may request measurement reports from the MS and control its cell re‑selection. This is indicated by the parameter NETWORK_CONTROL_ORDER. The meaning of the different parameter values is specified as follows:

NC0 Normal MS control
The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC1 MS control with measurement reports
The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.
The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC2 Network control
The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.
The MS shall only perform autonomous cell re-selection when the reselection is triggered by a downlink signalling failure as defined in subclause 6.5 or a random access failure as defined in 3GPP TS 44.018 and 3GPP TS 44.060 or if the cell is barred or the C1 criterion falls below zero. The MS shall only determine whether the cell is barred once camped on the cell.

RESET The MS shall return to the broadcast parameters. Only sent on PCCCH or PACCH.

A list given by Packet Cell Change Order applies in the new cell. This list may also include cells with other radio access technologies.

All signalling for support of network controlled cell re-selection and measurement reports are defined in 3GPP TS 44.060.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4.1]

When ordered to send measurement reports, the MS shall continuously monitor all carriers in BA(GPRS) or as indicated by the parameter NC_FREQUENCY_LIST and the BCCH carrier of the serving cell. The measurement requirements are defined in subclause 10.1.1 for the actual packet mode

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4.2]

A cell re-selection command may be sent from the network to an MS. When the MS receives the command, it shall re-select the cell according to the included cell description and change the network control mode according to the command (see 3GPP TS 44.060). The command may include re-selection of another radio access technology/mode.

[TS 44.060, clause 5.5.1.1a.2]

A mobile station, which has CCN Enabled, can enter CCN Mode.

The mobile station shall enable CCN when the following criteria are fulfilled:

– the mobile station is camping on a cell (see 3GPP TS 45.008); and

– the network indicates CCN ACTIVE/3G CCN ACTIVE/E-UTRAN CCN ACTIVE either in system information to all mobile stations in the cell or in an individual order to a certain mobile station; and

– the mobile station is neither in dedicated mode nor Dual Transfer Mode; and

– the mobile station is in NC0 or in NC1 mode; and

– the mobile station is in Packet Transfer mode.

The CCN procedures and the criteria for entering and leaving CCN mode are specified in sub-clauses 8.8.2 and 8.8.3.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.4.6.2]

The procedure is initiated when a radio access technology other than E-UTRAN, e.g. GSM/GPRS, using procedures specific for that RAT, orders the UE to change to an E-UTRAN cell. In response, upper layers request the establishment of an RRC connection as specified in subclause 5.3.3.

NOTE: Within the message used to order the UE to change to an E-UTRAN cell, the source RAT should specify the identity of the target E-UTRAN cell as specified in the specifications for that RAT.

The UE shall:

1> upon receiving an RRCConnectionSetup message:

2> consider the inter-RAT cell change order procedure to have completed successfully;

6.2.3.30.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4, and 10.1.4.2:

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4]

The network may request measurement reports from the MS and control its cell re‑selection. This is indicated by the parameter NETWORK_CONTROL_ORDER. The meaning of the different parameter values is specified as follows:

NC0 Normal MS control The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC1 MS control with measurement reports The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.
The MS shall perform autonomous cell re-selection.

NC2 Network control The MS shall send measurement reports to the network as defined in subclause 10.1.4.1.
The MS shall only perform autonomous cell re-selection when the reselection is triggered by a downlink signalling failure as defined in subclause 6.5 or a random access failure as defined in 3GPP TS 44.018 and 3GPP TS 44.060 or if the cell is barred or the C1 criterion falls below zero. The MS shall only determine whether the cell is barred once camped on the cell.

RESET The MS shall return to the broadcast parameters. Only sent on PCCCH or PACCH.

A list given by Packet Cell Change Order applies in the new cell. This list may also include cells with other radio access technologies.

All signalling for support of network controlled cell re-selection and measurement reports are defined in 3GPP TS 44.060.

If the MS operates in NC2 mode, the following rules shall be applied:

– The network controls the measurements of UTRAN cells by the parameter Qsearch_P. The network controls the measurements of E-UTRAN cells by the parameter Qsearch_P_E-UTRAN.

– The network may control UTRAN measurements per individual UTRAN frequency by the parameters Measurement_Control_UTRAN and E-UTRAN measurements per individual E-UTRAN frequency by the parameters Measurement_Control_E-UTRAN.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.4.2]

A cell re-selection command may be sent from the network to an MS. When the MS receives the command, it shall re-select the cell according to the included cell description and change the network control mode according to the command (see 3GPP TS 44.060). The command may include re-selection of another radio access technology/mode.

If a UTRAN capable MS receives a cell re-selection command towards a not known UTRAN cell (see 3GPP TS 25.133 and 3GPP TS 25.123), or if a E-UTRAN capable MS receives a cell re-selection command towards a not known E-UTRAN cell (see 3GPP TS 36.133), then the MS shall search for synchronisation information up to 800 ms. In case of failure, the MS shall return to the old cell and indicate a packet cell change failure (see 3GPP TS 44.060).

6.2.3.31 Inter-RAT Cell reselection / From UTRA_Idle (low priority) to E-UTRA RRC_IDLE (high priority) according to RAT priority provided by dedicated signalling

6.2.3.31.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in UTRA_Idle state }

ensure that {

when { UE detects the cell re-selection criteria are met for the cell which belongs to the high priority inter-RAT E-UTRA cell based on the configured RAT priority provided by dedicated signaling }

then { UE reselects the cell which belongs to the higher priority inter-RAT E-UTRA cell }

}

6.2.3.31.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a and 5.2.6.1.4a; TS 25.331, clause 8.3.3.3 and 8.6.7.23; TS 36.331, clause 5.3.3.4.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.2a]

If the UE has received absolute priority information for inter-RAT layers, the UE shall follow these rules:

– The UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers with a priority higher than the priority of the current serving cell.

NOTE: The rate of these measurements may vary depending on whether Srxlev and Squal of the serving cell are above or below Sprioritysearch1 and Sprioritysearch2. This is specified in [10].

– For inter-RAT layers with a priority lower than the priority of the current serving cell:

– If SrxlevServingCell > Sprioritysearch1 and SqualServingCell > Sprioritysearch2 the UE may choose not to perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

– If SrxlevServingCell <= Sprioritysearch1 or SqualServingCell <= Sprioritysearch2 the UE shall perform measurements of inter-RAT layers of lower priority.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.1.4a]

Absolute priorities of different absolute priority layers may be provided to the UE. The following cell reselection criteria are used for inter-frequency cells if absolute priority information for inter-frequency is available to the UE, and inter-RAT cells if absolute priority information for inter-RAT is available to the UE.

The UE shall inherit the priorities provided by dedicated signalling and the remaining validity time (i.e., T320 in E-UTRA, T322 in UTRA and T3230 in GERAN), if configured, at inter-RAT cell (re)selection.

The following definitions apply:

– Criterion 1: the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated higher absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,high during a time interval Treselection;

– Criterion 3: SrxlevServingCell < Threshserving,low or SqualServingCell < 0 and the SrxlevnonServingCell,x of a cell on an evaluated lower absolute priority layer is greater than Threshx,low during a time interval Treselection;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 1 is fulfilled.

Cell reselection to a cell on a lower absolute priority layer than the camped frequency shall be performed if criterion 3 is fulfilled.

If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect the cell with the highest SrxlevnonServingCell,x among the cells meeting the criteria on the highest absolute priority layer.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection to cells for which the cell selection criterion S is not fulfilled.

The UE shall not perform cell reselection until more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

[TS 25.331, clause 8.3.3.3]

When the UE receives a UTRAN MOBILITY INFORMATION message, it shall:

1> act on received information elements as specified in subclause 8.6;

1> if the IE "Dedicated Priority Information" is present:

2> act upon the received IE as described in subclause 8.6.7.23.

[TS 25.331, clause 8.6.7.23]

If the CHOICE "Action" has the value "Configure dedicated priorities", the UE shall:

1> clear the variable PRIORITY_INFO_LIST;

1> stop timer T322, if it is running;

1> set the value of IE "Priority status" in the variable PRIORITY_INFO_LIST to "dedicated_priority";

1> for each occurrence of the IE "Priority Level List":

2> create a new entry in the IE "Priority Info List" in the variable PRIORITY_INFO_LIST, and in that new entry:

3> set the CHOICE "Radio Access Technology" to the value received in the IE "Priority Level List";

3> set the IE "priority" to the value received in the IE "Priority Level List";

3> set the values in IE "Frequency List" or "BCCH ARFCN List" to the values received in the IE "Priority Level List".

1> set the IE "E-UTRA detection" to the value received in the IE "Priority Level List".

1> if the IE "T322" is present:

2> start timer T322 using the value signalled in this IE.

1> if the UE is not in CELL_DCH state:

2> take the actions as described in subclause 8.1.1.6.19 using stored System information Block type 19.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.3.4]

The UE shall:

1> perform the radio resource configuration procedure in accordance with the received radioResourceConfigDedicated and as specified in 5.3.10;

1> if stored, discard the cell reselection priority information provided by the idleModeMobilityControlInfo or inherited from another RAT;

1> stop timer T300;

1> stop timer T302, if running;

1> stop timer T303, if running;

1> stop timer T305, if running;

1> perform the actions as specified in 5.3.3.7;

1> stop timer T320, if running;

1> enter RRC_CONNECTED;

1> stop the cell re-selection procedure;

1> set the content of RRCConnectionSetupComplete message as follows:

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

6.2.3.32 Inter-RAT Cell reselection / From E-UTRA RRC_IDLE to UTRA_Idle, Snonintrasearch

6.2.3.32.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_IDLE state, and the UE is not in high mobility state }

ensure that {

when { Snonintrasearch is non-zero in system information }

then { UE perform measurement and reselects the cell which belong to the high priority UTRA cell upon Srxlev > Snonintrasearch }

}

6.2.3.32.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clauses 5.2.4.2, 5.2.4.5 and 5.2.4.6; TS 36.331, clause 6.3.1.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.2]

When evaluating for reselection purposes cell selection criterion or SnonServingCell,x, the UE shall use parameters provided by the serving cell.

Following rules are used by the UE to limit needed measurements:

– If Sintrasearch is sent in the serving cell and SServingCell > Sintrasearch, UE may choose to not perform intra-frequency measurements.

– If SServingCell <= Sintrasearch, or Sintrasearch is not sent in the serving cell UE shall perform intra-frequency measurements.

– The UE shall apply the following rules for E-UTRAN inter-frequencies and inter-RAT frequencies which are indicated in system information and for which the UE has priority provided as defined in 5.2.4.1:

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequency with a reselection priority higher than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency the UE shall perform measurements of higher priority E-UTRAN inter-frequency or inter-RAT frequencies according to [10].

– For an E-UTRAN inter-frequency with an equal or lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRA frequency and for inter-RAT frequency with lower reselection priority than the reselection priority of the current E-UTRAN frequency:

– If Snonintrasearch is sent in the serving cell and SServingCell > Snonintrasearch UE may choose not to perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority.

– If SServingCell <= Snonintrasearch or Snonintrasearch is not sent in the serving cell the UE shall perform measurements of E-UTRAN inter-frequencies or inter-RAT frequency cells of equal or lower priority according to [10].

Where SServingCell is the Srxlev-value of the serving cell.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.5]

Criteria 1: the SnonServingCell,x of a cell on evaluated frequency is greater than Threshx, high during a time interval TreselectionRAT;

Cell reselection to a cell on a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency than serving frequency shall be performed if:

– A cell of a higher priority E-UTRAN frequency or inter-RAT frequency fulfils criteria 1; and

  • more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

…..

In all the above criteria the value of TreselectionRAT is scaled when the UE is in the medium or high mobility state as defined in subclause 5.2.4.3.1. If more than one cell meets the above criteria, the UE shall reselect a cell ranked as the best cell among the cells meeting the criteria on the highest priority frequencies or the highest priority RAT if the highest priority RAT is E-UTRA according to criteria defined in 5.2.4.6.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.6]

The cell-ranking criterion Rs for serving cell and Rn for neighbouring cells is defined by:

where:

Qmeas

RSRP measurement quantity used in cell reselections.

Qoffset

For intra-frequency: Equals to Qoffsets,n, if Qoffsets,n is valid, otherwise this equals to zero.

For inter-frequency: Equals to Qoffsets,n plus Qoffsetfrequency, if Qoffsets,n is valid, otherwise this equals to Qoffsetfrequency.

The UE shall perform ranking of all cells that fulfil the cell selection criterion S, which is defined in 5.2.3.2, but may exclude all CSG cells that are known by the UE to be not allowed.

The cells shall be ranked according to the R criteria specified above, deriving Qmeas,n and Qmeas,s and calculating the R values using averaged RSRP results.

If a cell is ranked as the best cell the UE shall perform cell re-selection to that cell.

In all cases, the UE shall reselect the new cell, only if the following conditions are met:

– the new cell is better ranked than the serving cell during a time interval TreselectionRAT,

– more than 1 second has elapsed since the UE camped on the current serving cell.

[TS 36.331, clause 6.3.1]

The IE SystemInformationBlockType3 contains cell re-selection information common for intra-frequency, inter-frequency and/ or inter-RAT cell re-selection (i.e. applicable for more than one type of cell re-selection but not necessarily all) as well as intra-frequency cell re-selection information other than neighbouring cell related.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5.1]

The UE shall evaluate whether newly detectable UTRA FDD cells have met the reselection criteria in TS 36.304 within time (NUTRA_carrier) * TdetectUTRA_FDD when Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ when TreselectionRAT = 0 provided that the reselection criteria is met by a margin of at least 6dB for reselections based on RSCP, or a margin of at least 3dB for reselections based on Ec/Io.

For a cell that has been already detected, but that has not been reselected to, the filtering shall be such that the UE shall be capable of evaluating that an already identified UTRA FDD cell has met reselection criterion defined in 3GPP TS 36.304 [1] within (NUTRA_carrier) * TevaluateUTRA_FDD when Treselection = 0 as speficied in table 4.2.2.5.1-1 provided that the reselection criteria is met by a margin of at least 6dB for reselections based on RSCP, or a margin of at least 3dB for reselections based on Ec/Io.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.5.2]

The UE shall evaluate whether newly detectable UTRA TDD cells have met the reselection criteria in TS 36.304 within time (NUTRA_carrier_TDD) * TdetectUTRA_TDD when Srxlev ≤ SnonIntraSearchP or Squal ≤ SnonIntraSearchQ when Treselection = 0 provided that the reselection criteria is met by a margin of at least 6dB.

For a cell that has been already detected, but that has not been reselected to, the filtering shall be such that the UE shall be capable of evaluating that an already identified UTRA TDD cell has met reselection criterion defined in [1] within NUTRA_carrier_TDD *TevaluateUTRA_TDD when Treselection = 0 as specified in table 4.2.2.5.2-1 provided that the reselection criteria is met by a margin of at least 6dB.
