8.5.2.1 Redirection to E-UTRAN / From UTRAN upon reception of RRC CONNECTION REJECT

8.5.2.1.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in UTRA Idle state }

ensure that {

when { UE is requested to make an outgoing PS call }

then { UE includes in the RRC CONNECTION REQUEST the IE Pre-Redirection info" }

}

(2)

with { UE in UTRA CELL_DCH state }

ensure that {

when { UE receives an RRC CONNECTION REJECT message including an IE Redirection info with E-UTRA target info E-UTRA frequency }

then { UE enters RRC_IDLE state on E-UTRAN Carrier included in IE Redirection info }

}

8.5.2.1.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 25.331, clause 8.1.3.3, 8.1.4.3 and clause 8.5.2.

[TS 25.331, clause 8.1.3.3]

The UE shall, in the transmitted RRC CONNECTION REQUEST message:

1> if the UE supports E-UTRA:

2> if the variable EUTRA_FREQUENCY_INFO_LIST contains no E-UTRA frequencies:

3> include the IE "Pre-Redirection info";

3> if the UE supports E-UTRA FDD:

4> set the IE "Support of E-UTRA FDD" to TRUE.

3> if the UE supports E-UTRA TDD:

4> set the IE "Support of E-UTRA TDD" to TRUE.

2> if the UE supports any of the bands that the E-UTRA frequencies included in the variable EUTRA_FREQUENCY_INFO_LIST belong to:

3> include the IE "Pre-Redirection info";

3> if the UE supports any of the bands that the E-UTRA FDD frequencies included in the variable EUTRA_FREQUENCY_INFO_LIST belong to:

4> set the IE "Support of E-UTRA FDD" to TRUE.

3> if the UE supports any of the bands that the E-UTRA TDD frequencies included in the variable EUTRA_FREQUENCY_INFO_LIST belong to:

4> set the IE "Support of E-UTRA TDD" to TRUE.

[TS 25.331, clause 8.1.3.9]

When the UE receives an RRC CONNECTION REJECT message on the downlink CCCH, it shall compare the value of the IE "Initial UE identity" in the received RRC CONNECTION REJECT message with the value of the variable INITIAL_UE_IDENTITY:

1> if the IE "inter-RAT info" is present:

2> if the IE "wait time" = ‘0’:

3> the UE behaviour is not specified.

2> if V300 is equal to or smaller than N300:

3> if the IE "GSM target cell info" is present:

4> attempt to camp on a suitable cell of the list of cells indicated for that RAT;

4> if the UE selects and camps on one of the cells indicated for that RAT:

5> disable cell reselection to the original RAT until the time stated in the IE "wait time" has elapsed.

4> if the UE cannot find any suitable cell from the indicated ones within 10s, the UE is allowed to camp on any suitable cell on that RAT.

5> after having selected and camped on a suitable cell on the designated RAT:

6> the UE may disable cell reselection to the original RAT until the time stated in the IE "wait time" has elapsed.

3> if the IE "E-UTRA target info" is present:

4> attempt to camp on a suitable cell on one of the frequencies indicated for that RAT, excluding any cell indicated in the list of not allowed cells for that RAT (e.g. the "E-UTRA Target Cell Blacklist" for E-UTRA), if present;

4> if the UE selects and camps on one such cell:

5> disable cell reselection to the original RAT until the time stated in the IE "wait time" has elapsed.

4> if the UE cannot find any suitable cell on the indicated frequencies within 10s, the UE is allowed to camp on any suitable cell on that RAT:

5> after having selected and camped on a suitable cell on the designated RAT:

6> disable cell reselection to the original RAT until the time stated in the IE "wait time" has elapsed.
