3> clear the information included in VarConnEstFailReport, if any;

3> set the plmn-Identity to the PLMN selected by upper layers (see TS 23.122 [11], TS 24.301 [35]) from the PLMN(s) included in the plmn-IdentityList in SystemInformationBlockType1;

3> set the failedCellId to the global cell identity of the cell where connection establishment failure is detected;

3> set the measResultFailedCell to include the RSRP and RSRQ, if available, of the cell where connection establishment failure is detected and based on measurements collected up to the moment the UE detected the failure;

3> if available, set the measResultNeighCells, in order of decreasing ranking-criterion as used for cell re-selection, to include neighbouring cell measurements for at most the following number of neighbouring cells: 6 intra-frequency and 3 inter-frequency neighbours per frequency as well as 3 inter-RAT neighbours, per frequency/ set of frequencies (GERAN) per RAT and according to the following:

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clause 5.3.3.4, 5.3.3.6 and 5.6.5.3. Unless otherwise stated these are Rel-11 requirements.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.3.4]

The UE shall:

1> set the content of RRCConnectionSetupComplete message as follows:

2> if the UE has connection establishment failure information available in VarConnEstFailReport and if the RPLMN is equal to plmn-Identity stored in VarConnEstFailReport:

3> include connEstFailInfoAvailable;

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

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.3.6]

The UE shall:

1> if timer T300 expires:

2> reset MAC, release the MAC configuration and re-establish RLC for all RBs that are established;

2> store the following connection establishment failure information in the VarConnEstFailReport by setting its fields as follows:

3> clear the information included in VarConnEstFailReport, if any;

3> set the plmn-Identity to the PLMN selected by upper layers (see TS 23.122 [11], TS 24.301 [35]) from the PLMN(s) included in the plmn-IdentityList in SystemInformationBlockType1;

3> set the failedCellId to the global cell identity of the cell where connection establishment failure is detected;

3> set the measResultFailedCell to include the RSRP and RSRQ, if available, of the cell where connection establishment failure is detected and based on measurements collected up to the moment the UE detected the failure;

3> if available, set the measResultNeighCells, in order of decreasing ranking-criterion as used for cell re-selection, to include neighbouring cell measurements for at most the following number of neighbouring cells: 6 intra-frequency and 3 inter-frequency neighbours per frequency as well as 3 inter-RAT neighbours, per frequency/ set of frequencies (GERAN) per RAT and according to the following:

4> for each neighbour cell included, include the optional fields that are available;

NOTE: The UE includes the latest results of the available measurements as used for cell reselection evaluation, which are performed in accordance with the performance requirements as specified in TS 36.133 [16].

3> if detailed location information is available, set the content of the locationInfo as follows:

4> include the locationCoordinates;

4> include the horizontalVelocity, if available;

3> set the numberOfPreamblesSent to indicate the number of preambles sent by MAC for the failed random access procedure;

3> set contentionDetected to indicate whether contention resolution was not successful as specified in TS 36.321 [6] for at least one of the transmitted preambles for the failed random access procedure;

3> set maxTxPowerReached to indicate whether or not the maximum power level was used for the last transmitted preamble, see TS 36.321 [6];

2> inform upper layers about the failure to establish the RRC connection, upon which the procedure ends;

The UE may discard the connection establishment failure information, i.e. release the UE variable VarConnEstFailReport, 48 hours after the failure is detected, upon power off or upon detach.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.6.5.3]

Upon receiving the UEInformationRequest message, the UE shall:

1> if connEstFailReportReq is set to true and the UE has connection establishment failure information in VarConnEstFailReport and if the RPLMN is equal to plmn-Identity stored in VarConnEstFailReport:

2> set timeSinceFailure in VarConnEstFailReport to the time that elapsed since the last connection establishment failure in E-UTRA;

2> set the connEstFailReport in the UEInformationResponse message to the value of connEstFailReport in VarConnEstFailReport;

2> discard the connEstFailReport from VarConnEstFailReport upon successful delivery of the UEInformationResponse message confirmed by lower layers;

1> else:

2> submit the UEInformationResponse message to lower layers for transmission via SRB1;

1> set the content of RRCConnectionSetupComplete message as follows:

2> if the UE is connected to EPC:

3> except for NB-IoT:

4> if the UE has WLAN logged measurements available and if the RPLMN is included in plmn-IdentityList stored in VarLogMeasReport:

5> include logMeasAvailableWLAN;

4> if the UE has connection establishment failure information available in VarConnEstFailReport and if the RPLMN is equal to plmn-Identity stored in VarConnEstFailReport:

5> include connEstFailInfoAvailable;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.6.5.3]

Upon receiving the UEInformationRequest message, the UE shall, only after successful security activation:

1> if connEstFailReportReq is set to true and the UE has connection establishment failure information in VarConnEstFailReport and if the RPLMN is equal to plmn-Identity stored in VarConnEstFailReport:

2> set timeSinceFailure in VarConnEstFailReport to the time that elapsed since the last connection establishment failure in E-UTRA;

2> set the connEstFailReport in the UEInformationResponse message to the value of connEstFailReport in VarConnEstFailReport;

2> discard the connEstFailReport from VarConnEstFailReport upon successful delivery of the UEInformationResponse message confirmed by lower layers;

8.6.9.6.3 Test description

  • Cell 27 and Cell 27b are configured as per 36.508 cl 4.4.8 with the OFFLOAD condition
  • System information combination 22 as defined in TS 36.508 [18] clause 4.4.3.1 is used in E-UTRA cell.

UE:

None

Preamble:

– The UE is in state Generic RB Established (state 3) on Cell 1 according to [18].

Message

1

The SS transmits an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message on Cell 1.

<–

RRCConnectionReconfiguration

2

The UE transmits an RRCConnectionReconfigurationComplete message on Cell 1.

–>

RRCConnectionReconfigurationComplete

3

The SS transmits an RRCConnectionRelease message to release RRC connection and move to RRC_IDLE (State 2).

<–

RRCConnectionRelease

4

The SS transmits a Paging message.

<–

Paging

4A

The SS is configured to not transmit contention resolution in step 5 RACH procedure.

5

The UE transmits an RRCConnectionRequest message.

–>

RRCConnectionRequest

6

The SS waits for 2sec (T300 expiry) and ignores further received Random Access Preamble.

7

The SS transmits a Paging message.

<–

Paging

8

The UE transmits an RRCConnectionRequest message.

–>

RRCConnectionRequest

9

The SS transmits an RRCConnectionSetup message.

<–

RRCConnectionSetup

10

Check: Does the UE transmits an RRCConnectionSetupComplete message including connEstFailInfoAvailable with logMeasAvailableWLAN.

UE initiates the session management procedure by including the SERVICE REQUEST message. (State3)

RRC : RRCConnectionSetupComplete

NAS : SERVICE REQUEST

P

11-14

Steps 5 to 8 of the generic radio bearer establishment procedure in TS 36.508 subclause 4.5.3.3 are executed to successfully complete the service request procedure.

15

The SS sends a UEInformationRequest message to get connEstFailReportReq.

<–

UEInformationRequest

16

Check: Does the UE send a UEInformationResponse message with connEstFailReport with logMeasResultListWLAN including one entry (WLAN AP 1) measurement result?

Check: Does the UE send a UEInformationResponse message with connEstFailReport without measurement result of WLAN AP not including in wlan-NameListConfig (WLAN AP 2)?
