6.3.1.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.8.1, and 36.133, clauses 4.2.2.10 and 4.2.2.10.1.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.8.1]

In addition to normal cell reselection, the UE shall use an autonomous search function to detect at least previously visited allowed CSG cells on non-serving frequencies, including inter-RAT frequencies, according to the performance requirements specified in [10], when at least one CSG ID is included in the UE’s CSG whitelist. The UE may also use autonomous search on the serving frequency. The UE shall disable the autonomous search function for CSG cells if the UE’s CSG whitelist is empty.

NOTE: The UE autonomous search function, per UE implementation, determines when and/or where to search for allowed CSG cells.

If the UE detects one or more suitable CSG cells on different frequencies, then the UE shall reselect to one of the detected cells irrespective of the frequency priority of the cell the UE is currently camped on, if the concerned CSG cell is the highest ranked cell on that frequency.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.10]

Reselection from non CSG to CSG cells may be performed using UE autonomous search as defined in [1] when at least one CSG ID is included in the UE’s CSG whitelist. The requirements in this section are valid for reselection to CSG cells previously visited by the UE when the radio configuration parameters, including the carrier frequency and physical cell identity of the CSG cell, non CSG cell and other neighbour cells are unchanged from the most recent previous visit.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.10.1]

The UE shall perform search and reselection to an allowed inter-frequency CSG cell that has met reselection criterion defined in [1] and that is in its whitelist, within 6 minutes in the conditions shown in table 4.2.2.10.1-1. There is no need for statistical testing of this requirement.

6.3.2.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 24.301, clause 5.5.3.2.4, TS 45.008, clause 6.6.7.1, TS 45.008, clause 6.6.7.2 and TS 36.304, clause 10.1.3.4.

[TS 24.301, clause 5.5.3.2.4]

If the UE has initiated the tracking area updating procedure due to manual CSG selection and receives a TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT message, the UE shall check if the CSG ID of the cell where the UE has sent the TRACKING AREA UPDATE REQUEST message is contained in the Allowed CSG list. If not, the UE shall add that CSD ID to the Allowed CSG list.

[TS 45.008, clause 6.6.7.1]

If a mobile station is a member of at least one Closed Subscriber Group, i.e. at least one CSG ID is included in the MS’s "Allowed CSG list", then, in addition to normal cell reselection, the MS shall use an autonomous search function to detect UTRAN and/or E-UTRAN CSG cells. The autonomous search function shall at least detect previously visited allowed CSG cells.

NOTE 1: The autonomous search function is implementation dependent and controls when and/or where to search for allowed CSG cells.

If the strongest cell (see 3GPP TS 25.304 and 3GPP TS 36.304 for the definition of the strongest cell) which the MS has detected on a UTRAN or E-UTRAN frequency during a time interval T_reselection is a suitable CSG cell (see 3GPP TS 25.304 and 3GPP TS 36.304 for suitability criteria for UTRAN and E-UTRAN CSG cells respectively), the MS shall reselect to this cell irrespective of the cell reselection rules applicable for the cell on which the MS is currently camped.

The following requirements are valid for reselection to allowed CSG cells previously visited by the MS when the radio configuration parameters, including the carrier frequency and PSC/PCI (whichever and if it is applicable) of the CSG cell, non CSG cell and other neighbour cells, are unchanged from the most recent previous visit. The autonomous search and cell re-selection to a previously visited allowed CSG cell shall meet the performance requirements defined as follows:

  • the MS shall perform search and re-selection to a previously visited allowed UTRAN FDD CSG cell, that has met the CSG cell re-selection criterion defined above, within 6 minutes in the radio conditions specified for an UTRAN FDD CSG cell in 3GPP TS 36.133 in terms of parameters for CSG inter-RAT UTRAN FDD reselection; UARFCN and PSC shall be unchanged from the most recent previous visit of the UTRAN FDD CSG cell; Serving GSM cell at RXLEV= -70 dBm, with 6 GSM neighbours at RXLEV= -75 dBm;
  • the MS shall perform search and re-selection to a previously visited allowed E-UTRAN CSG cell, that has met the CSG cell re-selection criterion defined above, within 6 minutes in the radio conditions specified for an E-UTRAN CSG cell in 3GPP TS 25.133 in terms of parameters for CSG inter-RAT E-UTRA reselection; E-UARFCN and PCI shall be unchanged from the most recent previous visit of the E-UTRAN CSG cell; Serving GSM cell at RXLEV= -70 dBm, with 6 GSM neighbours at RXLEV= -75 dBm.

NOTE 4: The above performance requirements are minimum requirements defined to ensure the testability of autonomous CSG search.

[TS 45.008, clause 6.6.7.2]

If NAS requests AS to search for available CSG IDs, the MS shall perform the search and report the results to NAS as described in 3GPP TS 25.304 for UTRAN and as described in 3GPP TS 36.304 for E-UTRAN.

If a CSG ID is manually selected by NAS, the MS shall behave as specified in 3GPP TS 25.304 or in 3GPP TS 36.304, depending on the RAT type of the selected CSG cell.

[TS 45.008, clause 10.1.3.4]

If a mobile station is a member of at least one Closed Subscriber Group, i.e. at least one CSG ID is included in the MS’s "Allowed CSG list", then, in addition to normal cell reselection, the MS shall use an autonomous search function to detect UTRAN and/or E-UTRAN CSG cells. The autonomous search function shall at least detect previously visited allowed CSG cells.

6.3.3.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 25.304, clause 5.6.1, 5.2.6.4.1, TS 36.304 clause 5.2.4.8.1, 5.2.4.6, 5.2.4.8.2, 5.2.4.1 and TS 25.133, clause 4.2.2.11.2.

[TS 24.301, clause 5.5.3.2.4]

If the UE has initiated the tracking area updating procedure due to manual CSG selection and receives a TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT message, the UE shall check if the CSG ID of the cell where the UE has sent the TRACKING AREA UPDATE REQUEST message is contained in the Allowed CSG list. If not, the UE shall add that CSD ID to the Allowed CSG list.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.6.1]

In the UE on request of NAS, the AS shall scan all RF channels in the UTRA bands according to its capabilities to find available CSG IDs. On each carrier, the UE shall at least search for the strongest cell, read its system information and report available CSG ID(s) together with their “HNB name” (if broadcast) and PLMN(s) to the NAS. The search for available CSG IDs may be stopped on request of the NAS.

If NAS has selected a CSG ID and provided this selection to AS, the UE shall search for an acceptable or suitable cell belonging to the selected CSG ID to camp on.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.4.1]

In addition to normal cell reselection, the UE shall use an autonomous search function to detect at least previously visited allowed CSG cells on non-serving frequencies, including inter-RAT frequencies, according to the performance requirements specified in [10], when at least one CSG ID is included in the UE’s CSG whitelist. The UE is required to perform autonomous search function in Idle, Cell_PCH and URA_PCH states. The UE shall disable the autonomous search function for CSG cells if the UE’s CSG whitelist is empty. If "Dedicated CSG frequency(ies) " IE is present, the UE may use the autonomous search function only on these dedicated frequencies and on the other frequencies listed in the system information.

NOTE: The UE autonomous search function, per UE implementation, determines when and/or where to search for allowed CSG cells.

When the UE has no or an empty CSG whitelist, the UE may ignore cells with PSC in the stored range "CSG PSC Split Information" [4] reserved for CSG cells for intra-frequency and inter-frequency measurements and cell re-selections.

If the UE detects a suitable CSG cell on a different frequency it shall reselect this cell irrespective of the cell reselection rules applicable for the cell the UE is currently camped on, if the detected suitable CSG cell is the strongest cell on that frequency. If suitable CSG cells are detected on different frequencies and these are the strongest cells on their frequencies, then the UE shall reselect to any one of them.

If the UE detects one or more suitable CSG cell on another RAT, the UE shall reselect to one of them according to [18].

[TS 25.133, clause 4.2.2.11.2]

The UE shall perform search and reselection to an allowed inter-RAT E-UTRA CSG cell that has met CSG reselection criterion defined in [1] and that is in its whitelist, within 6 minutes in the conditions shown in table 4.2.2.11.2-1. There is no need for statistical testing of this requirement.

Note 1: For this requirement to be applicable, the UARFCN and scrambling code for cell 1 and the EARFCN and physical cell identity for cell 2 shall be unchanged from when the CSG cell was visited previously

Note 2: Chosen to ensure that CSG autonomous search has a high probability of success on every attempt made by UE

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.8.1]

In addition to normal cell reselection, the UE shall use an autonomous search function to detect at least previously visited allowed CSG cells on non-serving frequencies, including inter-RAT frequencies, according to the performance requirements specified in [10], when at least one CSG ID is included in the UE’s CSG whitelist. The UE may also use autonomous search on the serving frequency. The UE shall disable the autonomous search function for CSG cells if the UE’s CSG whitelist is empty.

NOTE: The UE autonomous search function, per UE implementation, determines when and/or where to search for allowed CSG cells.

If the UE detects one or more suitable CSG cells on different frequencies, then the UE shall reselect to one of the detected cells irrespective of the frequency priority of the cell the UE is currently camped on, if the concerned CSG cell is the highest ranked cell on that frequency.

If the UE detects a suitable CSG cell on the same frequency, it shall reselect to this cell as per normal reselection rules (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 reselection to that cell. If this cell is found to be not-suitable, the UE shall behave according to subclause 5.2.4.4.

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 36.304, clause 5.2.4.8.2]

While camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall apply the normal cell reselection rules as defined in subclause 5.2.4.

[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.

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.

6.3.4.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 25.304, 5.2.6.4.1, TS 36.304 clause 5.2.4.8.1, 5.2.4.6, 5.2.4.8.2, 5.2.4.1, TS 25.133 clause 4.2.2.11.2 and TS 25.331, Annex E.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.6.4.1]

In addition to normal cell reselection, the UE shall use an autonomous search function to detect at least previously visited allowed CSG cells on non-serving frequencies, including inter-RAT frequencies, according to the performance requirements specified in [10], when at least one CSG ID is included in the UE’s CSG whitelist. The UE is required to perform autonomous search function in Idle, Cell_PCH and URA_PCH states. The UE shall disable the autonomous search function for CSG cells if the UE’s CSG whitelist is empty. If "Dedicated CSG frequency(ies) " IE is present, the UE may use the autonomous search function only on these dedicated frequencies and on the other frequencies listed in the system information.

NOTE: The UE autonomous search function, per UE implementation, determines when and/or where to search for allowed CSG cells.

When the UE has no or an empty CSG whitelist, the UE may ignore cells with PSC in the stored range "CSG PSC Split Information" [4] reserved for CSG cells for intra-frequency and inter-frequency measurements and cell re-selections.

If the UE detects a suitable CSG cell on a different frequency it shall reselect this cell irrespective of the cell reselection rules applicable for the cell the UE is currently camped on, if the detected suitable CSG cell is the strongest cell on that frequency. If suitable CSG cells are detected on different frequencies and these are the strongest cells on their frequencies, then the UE shall reselect to any one of them.

If the UE detects one or more suitable CSG cell on another RAT, the UE shall reselect to one of them according to [18].

[TS 25.133, clause 4.2.2.11]

Reselection from non CSG to CSG cells may be performed using UE autonomous search as defined in [1] when at least one CSG ID is included in the UE’s CSG whitelist. The requirements in this section are valid for reselection to CSG cells previously visited by the UE when the radio configuration parameters, including the carrier frequency and physical cell identity of the CSG cell, non CSG cell and other neighbour cells are unchanged from the most recent previous visit.

NOTE: According to [1], the UE autonomous search function, per UE implementation, determines when and/or where to search for allowed CSG cells.

[TS 25.133, clause 4.2.2.11.2]

The UE shall perform search and reselection to an allowed inter-RAT E-UTRA CSG cell that has met CSG reselection criterion defined in [1] and that is in its whitelist, within 6 minutes in the conditions shown in table 4.2.2.11.2-1. There is no need for statistical testing of this requirement.

[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.

If a cell is ranked as the best cell the UE shall perform cell reselection to that cell. If this cell is found to be not-suitable, the UE shall behave according to subclause 5.2.4.4.

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 36.304, clause 5.2.4.8.2]

While camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall apply the normal cell reselection rules as defined in subclause 5.2.4.

[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.

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.

[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.

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".

when { an inter-frequency CSG ID cell not in the UE’s Allowed CSG list but in the CSG subscription data for the UE at the network side is manually selected }

then { UE camps on the strongest cell with the selected CSG ID, performs a TAU procedure and updates the UE’s Allowed CSG list by adding this CSG ID into the UE’s Allowed CSG list }

}

6.3.5.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.5.1, clause 5.2.4.8.2, TS 23.122, clause 3.1A and clause 4.4.3.1.3.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.5.1]

In the UE on request of NAS, the AS shall scan all RF channels in the E-UTRA bands according to its capabilities to find available CSG IDs of available CSG cells. On each carrier, the UE shall at least search for the strongest cell, read its system information and report available CSG ID(s) belonging to the registered PLMN together with their “HNB name” (if broadcast) to the NAS. The search for available CSG IDs may be stopped on request of the NAS.

If NAS has selected a CSG ID and provided this selection to AS, the UE shall search for an acceptable or suitable cell belonging to the selected CSG ID to camp on.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.8.2]

While camped on a suitable CSG cell, the UE shall apply the normal cell reselection rules as defined in subclause 5.2.4.

[TS 23.122, clause 3.1A ]

If the MS supports CSG, it is provisioned with a list of allowed CSG identities and associated PLMN identities from the USIM if the list is available in the USIM or as described in 3GPP TS 24.285 [47] if the list is not available in the USIM. This list has zero or more entries. There are two modes of CSG selection:

– Manual mode: In this mode, the MS indicates to the user the list of available CSGs in the currently registered PLMN. The list of CSGs presented to the user is not restricted by the Allowed CSG list stored in the MS. After the user makes a selection, the MS camps on a cell with the selected CSG identity and may attempt to register with the associated PLMN (see 3GPP TS 24.008 [23] and 3GPP TS 24.301 [23A]).

[TS 23.122, clause 4.4.3.1.3 ]

The MS displays to the user the CSGs that are available with the currently registered PLMN using all access technologies which support CSGs and which are supported by the MS. For each entry in the list, an indication is provided whether that CSG identity is in the Allowed CSG list stored in the UE for this PLMN. Additional requirements for the display, including for the display of HNB name, can be found in 3GPP TS 22.011 [9].

The user may select a CSG from the available ones and the MS then camps on a cell with the selected CSG identity. The MS attempts to perform a Location Registration on the currently registered PLMN if the selected CSG Identity is not in the allowed CSG list stored in the MS.

6.3.6.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.3.2, 5.2.4.6 and TS 36.331, clause B.2.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.3.2]

The cell selection criterion S is fulfilled when:

Where:

Where:

the signalled value QrxlevminOffset is only applied when a cell is evaluated for cell selection as a result of a periodic search for a higher priority PLMN while camped normally in a VPLMN [3]. During this periodic search for higher priority PLMN the UE may check the S criteria of a cell using parameter values stored from a different cell of this higher priority PLMN.

Srxlev

Cell Selection RX level value (dB)

Qrxlevmeas

Measured cell RX level value (RSRP).

Qrxlevmin

Minimum required RX level in the cell (dBm)

Qrxlevminoffset

Offset to the signalled Qrxlevmin taken into account in the Srxlev evaluation as a result of a periodic search for a higher priority PLMN while camped normally in a VPLMN [5]

Pcompensation

max(PEMAX – PUMAX, 0) (dB)

PEMAX

Maximum TX power level an UE may use when transmitting on the uplink in the cell (dBm) defined as PEMAX in [TS 36.101]

PUMAX

Maximum RF output power of the UE (dBm) according to the UE power class as defined in [TS 36.101]

[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

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. If this cell is found to be not-suitable, the UE shall behave according to subclause 5.2.4.4.

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 B.2]

In this release of the protocol, it is mandatory for the UE to support a minimum set of CSG functionality consisting of:

– Identifying whether a cell is CSG or not;

– Ignoring CSG cells in cell selection/reselection.

6.3.7 Inter-RAT Cell reselection from E-UTRA idle non-CSG cell to a UTRA CSG cell

6.3.7.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_IDLE state and UE’s Allowed CSG list is not empty }

ensure that {

when { UE detects a suitable UTRA CSG cell previously visited }

then { UE selects the suitable UTRA CSG cell irrespective of its lower priority than EUTRA cells}

}

6.3.7.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.8, 4.3, TS 25.304, clause 5.6.1, 5.2.3.1.2, TS 25.367, clause 6.1, 7.2.3 and TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.10.2.

[TS 36.304, clause 5.2.4.8]

In addition to normal cell reselection, the UE shall use an autonomous search function to detect allowed CSG cells on non-serving frequencies, including inter-RAT frequencies, when at least one CSG ID is included in the UE’s CSG whitelist. The UE may also use autonomous search on the serving frequency. The UE shall disable the autonomous search function for CSG cells if the UE’s CSG whitelist is empty.

If the UE detects one or more suitable CSG cells on another RAT, the UE shall reselect to one of them, if allowed according to [19].

[TS 36.304, clause 4.3]

suitable cell:

A "suitable cell" is a cell on which the UE may camp on to obtain normal service. Such a cell shall fulfil all the following requirements.

  • The cell is part of either:

– the selected PLMN, or:

– the registered PLMN, or:

– a PLMN of the Equivalent PLMN list

according to the latest information provided by NAS:

– The cell is not barred, see subclause 5.3.1;

– The cell is part of at least one TA that is not part of the list of "forbidden tracking areas for roaming" [4], which belongs to a PLMN that fulfils the first bullet above;

– The cell selection criteria are fulfilled, see subclause 5.2.3.2;

– For a CSG cell, the CSG ID is part of the allowed CSG list of the UE.

If more than one PLMN identity is broadcast in the cell, the cell is considered to be part of all TAs with TAIs constructed from the PLMN identities and the TAC broadcast in the cell.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.6.1]

In the UE on request of NAS, the AS shall scan all RF channels in the UTRA bands according to its capabilities to find available CSG IDs. On each carrier, the UE shall at least search for the strongest cell, read its system information and report available CSG ID(s) belonging to the registered PLMN together with their “HNB name” (if broadcast) to the NAS. The search for available CSG IDs may be stopped on request of the NAS.

If NAS has selected a CSG ID and provided this selection to AS, the UE shall search for an acceptable or suitable cell belonging to the selected CSG ID to camp on.

[TS 25.304, clause 5.2.3.1.2]

The cell selection criterion S is fulfilled when:

Where:

Where:

the signalled values QqualminOffset and QrxlevminOffset are only applied when a cell is evaluated for cell selection as a result of a periodic search for a higher priority PLMN while camped normally in a VPLMN [5]. During this periodic search for higher priority PLMN the UE may check the S criteria of a cell using parameter values stored from a different cell of this higher priority PLMN.

Squal

Cell Selection quality value (dB)

Applicable only for FDD cells.

Srxlev

Cell Selection RX level value (dB)

Qqualmeas

Measured cell quality value. The quality of the received signal expressed in CPICH Ec/N0 (dB) for FDD cells. CPICH Ec/N0 shall be averaged as specified in [10]. Applicable only for FDD cells.

Qrxlevmeas

Measured cell RX level value. This is received signal, CPICH RSCP for FDD cells (dBm) and P-CCPCH RSCP for TDD cells (dBm).

Qqualmin

Minimum required quality level in the cell (dB). Applicable only for FDD cells.

QqualminOffset

Offset to the signalled Qqualmin taken into account in the Squal evaluation as a result of a periodic search for a higher priority PLMN while camped normally in a VPLMN [5]

Qrxlevmin

Minimum required RX level in the cell (dBm)

QrxlevminOffset

Offset to the signalled Qrxlevmin taken into account in the Srxlev evaluation as a result of a periodic search for a higher priority PLMN while camped normally in a VPLMN [5]

Pcompensation

max(UE_TXPWR_MAX_RACH – P_MAX, 0) (dB)

UE_TXPWR_MAX_RACH

Maximum TX power level an UE may use when accessing the cell on RACH (read in system information) (dBm)

P_MAX

Maximum RF output power of the UE (dBm)

[TS 25.367, clause 6.1]

During manual CSG ID selection a UE is allowed to perform Location Registration procedure on a CSG cell whose CSD ID is not in the CSG whitelist.

Based on the outcome of a Location Registration procedure initiated on a CSG cell, the UE’s CSG whitelist is updated.

[TS 25.367, clause 7.2.3]

Inter-RAT reselection to an allowed CSG cell is supported when the UE is camped on another RAT. The UE requirements are defined in the specifications of the concerned RAT.

[TS 36.133, clause 4.2.2.10.2]

The UE shall perform search and reselection to an allowed inter-RAT UTRAN FDD CSG cell that has met CSG reselection criterion defined in [1] and that is in its whitelist, within 6 minutes in the conditions shown in table 4.2.2.10.2-1. There is no need for statistical testing of this requirement.
