[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.7.4]

If the procedure was initiated due to radio link failure or handover failure, the UE shall:

1> set the reestablishmentCellId in the VarRLF-Report to the global cell identity of the selected cell;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.7.5]

The UE shall:

1> set the content of RRCConnectionReestablishmentComplete message as follows:

2> if the UE has radio link failure or handover failure information available in VarRLF-Report and plmn-Identity stored in VarRLF-Report is equal to the RPLMN:

3> include the rlf-InfoAvailable;

1> submit the RRCConnectionReestablishmentComplete message to lower layers for transmission, upon which the procedure ends;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.11.3]

The UE shall:

1> upon T310 expiry; or

1> upon random access problem indication from MAC while neither T300, T301, T304 nor T311 is running; or

1> upon indication from RLC that the maximum number of retransmissions has been reached:

2> consider radio link failure to be detected;

8.6.4.5.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clause 5.3.7.4, 5.3.7.5, 5.3.11.3 and 5.6.5.3.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.7.4]

If the procedure was initiated due to radio link failure or handover failure, the UE shall:

1> set the reestablishmentCellId in the VarRLF-Report to the global cell identity of the selected cell;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.7.5]

The UE shall:

1> set the content of RRCConnectionReestablishmentComplete message as follows:

2> if the UE has radio link failure or handover failure information available in VarRLF-Report and plmn-Identity stored in VarRLF-Report is equal to the RPLMN:

3> include the rlf-InfoAvailable;

1> submit the RRCConnectionReestablishmentComplete message to lower layers for transmission, upon which the procedure ends;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.11.3]

The UE shall:

1> upon T310 expiry; or

1> upon random access problem indication from MAC while neither T300, T301, T304 nor T311 is running; or

1> upon indication from RLC that the maximum number of retransmissions has been reached:

2> consider radio link failure to be detected;

2> store the following radio link failure information in the VarRLF-Report by setting its fields as follows:

3> clear the information included in VarRLF-Report, if any;

3> set the plmn-Identity to the RPLMN;

3> set the measResultLastServCell to include the RSRP and RSRQ, if available, of the PCell based on measurements collected up to the moment the UE detected radio link failure;

3> set the measResultNeighCells to include the best measured cells, other than the PCell, ordered such that the best cell is listed first, and based on measurements collected up to the moment the UE detected radio link failure, and set its fields as follows;
