3> exclude the IE "Predefined configuration status information".

2> include the IE "UE capability container", containing the IE "UE radio access capability" and the IE "UE radio access capability extension", in accordance with the following:

3> if the UE supports multiple UTRA FDD Frequency Bands; or

3> if the UE supports a single UTRA FDD Frequency Band different from Band I [21]; or

3> if the UE supports E-UTRA:

4> include the IE "UE radio access capability", excluding IEs "RF capability FDD" and "Measurement capability" for FDD and including the IE "Measurement capability TDD" for TDD;

4> include the IE "UE radio access capability extension", including the IEs "RF capability FDD extension", the "Measurement capability extension", the "Additional Secondary Cells" and the "Non-contiguous multi-cell" associated with each supported UTRA FDD frequency band indicated in the IE "Frequency band", but may omit all or part of these IEs for supported inter-RAT bands.

3> else:

4> include the IE "UE radio access capability", including the IEs "RF capability FDD" and "Measurement capability" associated with the Band I [21] for FDD and excluding the IE "Measurement capability TDD" for TDD;

4> include the IE "UE radio access capability extension", including the IEs "RF capability FDD extension", the "Measurement capability extension", the "Additional Secondary Cells" and the "Non-contiguous multi-cell" associated with each supported UTRA FDD frequency band indicated in the IE "Frequency band".

1> For FDD, include the IE "UE radio access capability comp 2";

1> For 1.28 Mcps TDD, include the IE "UE radio access capability comp for 1.28 Mcps TDD";

1> initiate the transfer of the INTER RAT HANDOVER INFO message via the other radio access technology, using radio access technology-specific procedures;

1> store the following in the variable INTER_RAT_HANDOVER_INFO_TRANSFERRED if they were included in the INTER RAT HANDOVER INFO message:

2> the IE "Predefined configuration status information";

2> the IE "Predefined configuration status information compressed";

2> the IE "UE security information";

2> the IE "UE security information2";

2> the IE "UE radio access capability";

2> the IE "UE radio access capability extension"; and

2> the IE "UE radio access capability compressed";

2> if the IE "UE radio access capability compressed" were included in the INTER RAT HANDOVER INFO message:

3> set the IE "Security Capability" to the mandatory R99 algorithms.

1> and the procedure ends.

Explanation

Rel-8

Only for Rel-8

>Rel-8

For Rel-9 or later Releases

>Rel-10

For Rel-11 or later Releases

FDD = TDD

UE is not allowed to signal different values for FDD and TDD

Note 1: For Rel-9 UEs:
If FDD resp. TDD specific FGI values are reported
then
the FDD resp. TDD specific FGI PICS are checked against the reported FDD resp. TDD
specific FGI values,
else
the FDD resp. TDD specifc FGI PICS are both checked against the reported common FGI values.

For Rel-8 UEs the FDD resp. TDD specific FGI PICS are both checked against the reported common FGI values.

For Rel-10 and higher release versions the same holds as stated above for Rel-9, except that the common values may be assumed if not reported. See 36.331 Annex B.1.

Note 2: The present table shows the checking which is performed if a UE of the highest defined access stratum release indicator is tested. For UEs of lower release versions information related to higher release versions may be present if a UE has selective higher release features implemented. Such information is tolerated but not used for checking against any PICS items.

Note 3: Only checked against pc_ue_CategoryDL_M1 and pc_ue_CategoryUL_M1.

Note 4: Depending on UE implementation/configuration, the UE may not report certain RAT support based on information received from the network.

Note 5: List of Conditions:
pc_DL_intraBand_contCaBWclassB,
pc_DL_intraBand_contCaBWclassC,
pc_UL_intraBand_contCaBWclassB,
pc_UL_intraBand_contCaBWclassC,
pc_DL_intraBand_nonContCaBwClassComb_AA, pc_UL_intraBand_nonContCaBwClassComb_AA,
pc_DL_interBand_CaBwClassComb_AA,
pc_UL_SupportedInAllBandsInCAComb,
pc_UL_interBand_CaBwClassComb_AA

Checkpoints:
pc_DL_intraBand_contCaBWclassB shall be set to true if at least one DL Intra-band contiguous CA BW Class B CA configuration is reported;
pc_DL_intraBand_contCaBWclassC shall be set to true if at least one DL Intra-band contiguous CA BW ClassC CA configuration is reported;
pc_UL_intraBand_contCaBWclassB shall be set to true if at least one UL Intra-band contiguous CA BW Class B CA configuration is reported;
pc_UL_intraBand_contCaBWclassC shall be set to true if at least one UL Intra-band contiguous CA BW Class C CA configuration is reported;
pc_DL_intraBand_nonContCaBwClassComb_AA shall be set to true if at least one DL_intraBand_nonContCaBwClassComb_AA configuration is reported;
pc_UL_intraBand_nonContCaBwClassComb_AA shall be set to true if at least one UL_intraBand_nonContCaBwClassComb_AA configuration is reported;
pc_DL_interBand_CaBwClassComb_AA shall be set to true if at least one DL_DL_interBand_CaBwClassComb_AA configuration is reported;
pc_UL_SupportedInAllBandsInCAComb shall be set to true if UL_SupportedInAllBandsInCAComb configuration is reported for the CA band combination identified by px_EUTRA_CA_BandCombination;
pc_UL_interBand_CaBwClassComb_AA shall be set to true if at least one UL_interBand_CaBwClassComb_AA configuration is reported.

The UE shall include in supportedBandCombination-r10 as many as possible of the band combinations the UE supports. For each checkpoint listed above, in case none of the listed configuration is reported, the associated PICS item is assumed to be set correctly.

Note 6: If the UE is Single Mode (FDD or TDD) support of ss-CCH-InterfHandl-r11 will be signaled in the common IE.
If the UE is Dual Mode (FDD & TDD) and the support of ss-CCH-InterfHandl-r11 is different in both modes then it will be signaled under X-Add-UE-EUTRA-Capabilities-v1130 IE (X – fdd and/or tdd respectively), and it will not be present in the common IE. It will be signalled in the common IE if the value is the same on both modes (i.e. “supported” on both FDD and TDD). The IE may be signaled independently for either FDD or TDD or both.

Note 7: Only check against pc_ue_CategoryDL_1bis and pc_ue_CategoryUL_1bis.

Note 8: Not checked as no PICS are defined yet.

Note 9: Checked as far as PICS are defined.

Note 10: If the UE is Single Mode (FDD or TDD) support of crs-InterfHandl-r11 will be signaled in the common IE.
If the UE is Dual Mode (FDD & TDD) and the support of crs-InterfHandl -r11 is different in both modes then it will be signaled under X-Add-UE-EUTRA-Capabilities-v1130 IE (X – fdd and/or tdd respectively), and it will not be present in the common IE. It will be signalled in the common IE if the value is the same on both modes (i.e. “supported” on both FDD and TDD). The IE may be signaled independently for either FDD or TDD or both.

Note 11: Depending on UE implementation, the UE may not report both UTRA RATs supported.

Note 12: The applicable categories for FGI 103/104 checking are (UE category = 8 OR UE category >=11 OR UE DL Category = 11 OR UE DL Category = 12 OR UE DL Category >= 14) according to TS 36.331. The UE DL Categories higher than 14 are not explicitly listed in the condition because in this version of core specification UE DL Category > 14 requires supporting of UE Category 11 or 12.

Note 13: Void.

Note 14: The extended bands represented by their placeholders need to be related to the bands reported in supportedBandListEUTRA-v9e0.

4> create a set of band combinations supported by the UE, including non-CA combinations, target for being included in supportedBandCombination while observing the following order (i.e. listed in order of decreasing priority):

– include all non-CA bands, regardless of whether UE supports carrier aggregation, only:

– if the UE includes ue-Category-v1020 (i.e. indicating category 6 to 8); or

– if for at least one of the non-CA bands, the UE supports more MIMO layers with TM9 and TM10 than implied by the UE category; or

– the UE supports TM10 with one or more CSI processes;

– include all 2DL+1UL CA band combinations, only consisting of bands included in requestedFrequencyBands;

– include all other 2DL+1UL CA band combinations;

– include all other CA band combinations, only consisting of bands included in requestedFrequencyBands, and prioritized in the order of requestedFrequencyBands, (i.e. first include remaining band combinations containing the first-listed band, then include remaining band combinations containing the second-listed band, and so on);

4> include in supportedBandCombination as many of the target band combinations as possible, determined according to the above, while observing the priority order;

4> include in supportedBandCombinationAdd as many of the remaining target band combinations as possible, i.e. the target band combinations the UE was not able to include in supportedBandCombination, and limited to those consisting of bands included in requestedFrequencyBands, while observing the priority order;

4> indicate in requestedBands the same bands and in the same order as included in the received requestedFrequencyBands;

3> else

4> create a set of band combinations supported by the UE, including non-CA combinations, target for being included in supportedBandCombination:

– if for at least one of the non-CA bands, the UE supports more MIMO layers with TM9 and TM10 than implied by the UE category; or

– the UE supports TM10 with one or more CSI processes;

– include all 2DL+1UL CA band combinations;

– include all other CA band combinations;

4> include in supportedBandCombination as many of the target band combinations as possible, determined according to the above;

4> if the number of non-CA and CA band combinations supported by UE exceeds the maximum number of band combinations of supportedBandCombination, the selection of subset of band combinations is up to UE implementation;

U – S

Message

1

The SS transmits a UECapabilityEnquiry message to request UE radio access capability information for E UTRA only. The IE requestedFrequencyBands is not included

<–

UECapabilityEnquiry

2

UE transmits a UECapabilityInformation message.

–>

UECapabilityInformation

The reference to supportedBandCombinations and supportedBandListEUTRA below refers to the IEs received by the SS in the UECapabilityInformation message in step 2.

The SS locates the first 2DL+1UL CA band combination in the supportedBandCombination-r10 sequence. If the first CA band combination is an intra-band combination the SS stores the value of the IE bandEUTRA-r10 in the test variables B1 and B2. If the first CA band combination is an inter-band combination the SS stores the value of the IE bandEUTRA-r10 for each of the bands in the test variables B1 and B2 respectively.

The SS searches in the supportedBandCombination-r10 sequence for a 2DL+1UL CA band combination where the band or bands are different from the bands stored in the test variables B1 and B2. The SS stores the value of the IE bandEUTRA-r10 of the band (intra-band case) or of one of the bands (inter-band case) in the test variable B3.

3

The SS transmits a UECapabilityEnquiry message including the IE requestedFrequencyBands-r11 with the first requested frequency band entry set to the value of the test variable B3, the second entry to the value of the test variable B1 and the successive entries 3 to n set to frequency bands different from B1 and B3 derived from the UE indicated supported bands in IE supportedBandListEUTRA received by the SS in the UECapabilityInformation message in step 2 and where n is MIN(16, number of UE supported bands)

<–

UECapabilityEnquiry

4

Check: Does the UE transmit a UECapabilityInformation message with IE supportedBandCombination-r10 where the first listed 2DL+1UL CA band combination contains a band equal to the band stored in test variable B3; and where IE requestedBands have the same content as the IE requestedFrequencyBands-r11 sent by the SS in step 3? (Note 1)

–>

UECapabilityInformation

1

P

Note 1: Acc. to TS 36.331 (ASN.1), each CA band combination listed in IE supportedBandCombination-r10 is denominated with the contained bandEUTRA-r10 element (in case of Intra-band) resp. bandEUTRA-r10 elements (in case of inter-band). Extended bands (i.e. band > 64) were defined from TS 36.331 v1090 (ASN.1) onwards and the respective IE bandEUTRA-r10 is always encoded as ’64’. Which means that it is not possible to distinguish among multiple reported extended band candidates in IE supportedBandCombination-r10.
As a consequence, the Check procedure in step 4 cannot distinguish between extended bands in case that the UE supports mulitple CA band combinations containing different extended bands or a CA band combination involving more than one extended band. In such case, the test procedure shall issue an INCONC (= inconclusive) verdict with the following error message:
Ambiguity due to more than one extended band reported in the supported CA band combinations.
