9.1.2.1 Mode of the First Channel (Channel Set 1) and Mode of Channel Set "X" (2  X  8)

If this information element is not present the channel mode of the previously allocated channel or channels for Channel Set "X" (1  X  8) shall be assumed.

If Channel Set "X" is not defined for the configuration, the Mode of Channel Set "X" IE shall be considered as an IE unnecessary in the message.

NOTE: Sub-clause 3.4.3.1 defines cases when one or several Mode of Channel Set "X" IEs shall be included in the message.

9.1.2.2 Description of the Second Channel

These information elements appear in the case of an assignment occurring if the mobile station carries two connections (on two dedicated channels, for the TCH/H + TCH/H configuration).

The connection using the channel previously defined in the Description of the First Channel IEs of an ASSIGNMENT COMMAND or HANDOVER COMMAND message shall use the channel defined in the Description of the First Channel IEs of the ASSIGNMENT COMMAND message defining the new configuration.

The channel described in the Description of the First Channel IEs carries the main DCCH. The SACCH used is the one associated with that channel.

9.1.2.3 Mode of the Second Channel

If no Description of the Second Channel IE is present but the information element is present it shall be considered as an IE unnecessary in the message.

This information element appears at least when the channel mode is changed for the channel defined in the second channel description information elements.

9.1.2.4 Mobile Allocation and Frequency List, after the starting time

If at least one of the channel descriptions for the starting time indicates frequency hopping, one and only one of the following information elements shall be present and apply to all assigned channels:

Mobile Allocation, after time;

Frequency List, after time.

If neither of the Channel Description IEs for after time indicate frequency hopping, if decoding of Channel Description IEs for before time does not require a frequency list for after time (see next sub-clause), and one or both of the two information elements are present they shall be considered as IEs unnecessary in the message.

9.1.2.5 Starting Time

The starting time information element is included when the network wants the mobile station to change the frequency parameters of the channels more or less at the moment a change of channel occurs. In this case a number of information elements may be included to give the frequency parameters to be used before the starting time.

If the starting time information element is present and none of the information elements referring to before the starting time are present, the mobile station waits and accesses the channels at the indicated time.

If the starting time information element is present and at least one of the information elements referring to before the starting time is present, the mobile station does not wait for the indicated time and accesses the channel using the frequency parameters for before the starting time.

If the starting time information element is not present and at some of the information elements referring to before the starting time is present, these information elements shall be considered as IEs unnecessary in the message.

If the description of the first channel, before time IE is not present, the channel description to apply for before the time, if needed, is given by the description of the first channel, after time IE.

If the description of the second channel, after time IE is present, the description of the second channel, before time IE not present, and a description of the configuration for before the time needed, the channel configuration before the starting time is nevertheless of two traffic channels, and the channel description to apply to the second channel before the starting time is given by the description of the second channel, after time IE.

If the starting time IE is present and at least one of the channel descriptions for before the starting time indicates frequency hopping, one and only one of the following information elements may be present and applies before the starting time to all assigned channels:

Mobile Allocation, before time IE;

Frequency list, before time IE;

– Frequency channel sequence, before time IE.

If the starting time IE is present and at least one of the channel descriptions for before the starting time indicates frequency hopping, and none of the above mentioned IE is present, a frequency list for after the starting time must be present (see sub-clause 9.1.2.4), and this list applies also for the channels before the starting time.

9.1.2.6 Reference cell frequency list

If any of the mobile allocation information elements is present, then the network must ensure that either the mobile station has received in a previous message the proper reference cell frequency list (CA), or that the cell channel description IE is present.

If the cell channel description IE is present, it is used to decode the mobile allocation IEs in the message, as well as in later messages until reception of a new reference cell frequency list or the cell is left.

9.1.2.7 Cell Channel Description

If present, this information element shall be used to decode the Mobile Allocation IE in the same message and in subsequent messages.

9.1.2.8 Cipher Mode Setting

If this information element is omitted, the mode of ciphering is not changed after the mobile station has switched to the assigned channel.

9.1.2.9 VGCS target mode Indication

This information element is identified as "comprehension required". Only mobile stations supporting "VGCS talking" are required to accept the presence of the element. The presence of the element shall trigger an exception handling if received by a mobile station not supporting "VGCS talking".

This IE indicates which mode is to be used on the new channel (i.e. dedicated mode or group transmit mode). If this information element is not present, the mode shall be the same as on the previous channel.

The IE also indicates the group cipher key number for the group cipher key to be used on the new channel or if the new channel is non ciphered. If the information element is not present, the ciphering mode shall be the same as on the previous channel.

NOTE: A mobile station supporting VGCS talking shall not consider a syntactical error when this IE is present and the channel mode is not speech.

9.1.2.10 Description of the multislot allocation

This information element is included if so indicated by the channel type and TDMA offset field in the Channel Description information element and is used to assign channels that do not carry a main signalling link in a multislot configuration. It indicates how the used timeslots are divided into separate channel sets.

If the Channel Description IE does not require the presence of the information element the Description of the multislot allocation IE shall be considered as an IE unnecessary in the message.

If multislot configuration is indicated by the Channel Description IE but the Multislot Allocation IE is not present, all channels in the configuration belong to one channel set, "Channel Set 1".

NOTE: As a change of timeslot number cannot occur for the channel described after the starting time, the Multislot Allocation IE does not have to be included more than once.

9.1.2.11 Multi Rate configuration

This information element appears if the Mode of the First Channel indicates a multi-rate speech codec, and if the assigned configuration is new, i.e. it is different from the MultiRateconfiguration of a previously allocated channel in the cell.

9.1.3 Assignment complete

This message is sent on the main DCCH from the mobile station to the network to indicate that the mobile station has established the main signalling link successfully. See table 9.1.3.1.

NOTE 3: The Paging Indication is provided by the Channel Needed IE (or the Channel Needed field) associated with the page which triggered the sending of the CHANNEL REQUEST message.

NOTE 4: In some cases the established connection will be used only to allow a default rejection mechanism to take place (typically the mobile station will send a RELEASE COMPLETE message with cause #88 "incompatible destination" as an answer to the incoming SETUP message).

NOTE 5: In this sub-clause, "dual rate capability" means that the MS supports both full rate and half-rate channels at least for the signalling channel mode. In addition, it may support either speech channel mode, or data channel modes, or both on half-rate channels.

9.1.13a.1 Mobile Allocation and Frequency List, after the starting time

If the channel description for after the starting time indicates frequency hopping, one and only one of the following information elements shall be present:

Mobile Allocation, after time;

Frequency List, after time.

If the Channel Description IE for after time does not indicate frequency hopping, if decoding of Channel Description IE for before time does not require a frequency list for after time (see next sub-clause), and one or both of the two information elements are present they shall be considered as IEs unnecessary in the message.

9.1.13a.2 Starting Time

The starting time information element is included when the network wants the mobile station to change the frequency parameters of the channels more or less at the moment the change to a TBF occurs. In this case a number of information elements may be included to give the frequency parameters to be used before the starting time.

If the starting time information element is present and none of the information elements referring to before the starting time are present, the mobile station waits and uses the TBFfrom the indicated time.

If the starting time information element is present and at least one of the information elements referring to before the starting time is present, the mobile station does not wait for the indicated time and uses the TBF using the frequency parameters for before the starting time.

If the starting time information element is not present and some of the information elements referring to before the starting time is present, these information elements shall be considered as IEs unnecessary in the message.

If the description of the channel, before time IE is not present, the channel description to apply for before the time, if needed, is given by the description of the channel, after time IE.

If the starting time IE is present and the channel description for before the starting time indicates frequency hopping, one and only one of the following information elements may be present and applies before the starting time:

Mobile Allocation, before time IE;

Frequency list, before time IE;

– Frequency channel sequence, before time IE.

If the starting time IE is present and the channel description for before the starting time indicates frequency hopping, and none of the above mentioned IE is present, a frequency list for after the starting time must be present (see sub-clause 9.1.2.4), and this list applies also for the TBF before the starting time.

9.1.13a.3 Reference cell frequency list

If any of the mobile allocation information elements are present, then the network shall ensure that either the mobile station has received in a previous message the proper reference cell frequency list (CA), or that the cell channel description IE is present.

If the cell channel description IE is present, it is used to decode the mobile allocation IEs in the message, as well as in later dedicated mode messages until reception of a new reference cell frequency list or the cell is left.

9.1.13a.4 Cell Channel Description

If present, this information element shall be used to decode the Mobile Allocation IE in the same message and in subsequent messages.

9.1.13a.5 Packet Assignment

One and only one of the following information elements shall be present:

RR Packet Uplink Assignment;

RR Packet Downlink Assignment.

9.1.15.1 Synchronization Indication

If this information element does not appear, the assumed value is "non-synchronized".

9.1.15.2 Mode of the First Channel (Channel Set 1) and Mode of Channel Set "X" (2  X  8)

If this information element is not present the channel mode of the previously allocated channel or channels for Channel Set "X" (1  X  8) shall be assumed.

If Channel Set "X" is not defined for the configuration, the Mode of Channel Set "X" IE shall be considered as an IE unnecessary in the message.

NOTE: Sub-clause 3.4.4.1 defines cases when one or several Mode of Channel Set "X" IEs shall be included in the message.

9.1.15.3 Description of the Second Channel

These information element appear if the mobile station carries two connections (on two dedicated channels, for the TCH/H+TCH/H configuration).

The connection using the channel previously defined in the Description of the First Channel IE of an ASSIGNMENT COMMAND or HANDOVER COMMAND message shall use the channel defined in the first channel description IE of the HANDOVER COMMAND message defining the new configuration.

The channel described in the Description of the First Channel IE carries the main DCCH. The SACCH used is the one associated with that channel.

9.1.15.4 Mode of the Second Channel

If the Description of the Second Channel IE is not present and the information element is present it shall be considered as an IE unnecessary in the message.

This element appears at least when the channel mode is changed for the channel defined in the Description of the Second Channel information element.

9.1.15.5 Frequency Channel Sequence, Frequency List, Frequency short list and Mobile Allocation, after time.

If at least one of the channel descriptions for after time indicates frequency hopping, one and only one of the following information elements shall be present:

Frequency Channel Sequence, after time;

Frequency list, after time;

Frequency Short List, after time;

Mobile Allocation, after time.

If neither of the Channel Description IEs indicate frequency hopping, if they are not required for the decoding of Channel Description IEs for before time, and if any of the four information elements are present they shall be considered as IEs unnecessary in the message.

The Frequency Channel Sequence information element shall not be used unless all the ARFCNs that it indicates are in the P-GSM band.

9.1.15.6 Starting Time

The starting time information element is included when the network wants the mobile station to change the frequency parameters of the channels more or less at the moment a change of channel occurs. In this case a number of information elements may be included to give the frequency parameters to be used before the starting time.

The starting time information element refers to the new cell time.

If the starting time information element is present and none of the information elements referring to before the starting time are present, the mobile station waits and accesses the channels at the indicated time.

If the starting time information element is present and at least one of the information elements referring to before the starting time is present, the mobile station does not wait for the indicated time and accesses the channel using the frequency parameters for before the starting time.

If the starting time information element is not present and some of the information elements referring to before the starting time is present, these information elements shall be considered as IEs unnecessary in the message.

If the description of the first channel, before time IE is not present, the channel description to apply for before the time, if needed, is given by the description of the first channel, after time IE.

If the description of the second channel, after time IE is present, the description of the second channel, before time IE not present, and a description of the configuration for before the time needed, the channel configuration before the starting time is nevertheless of two traffic channels, and the channel description to apply to the second channel before the starting time is given by the description of the second channel, after time IE.

If the starting time IE is present and at least one of the channel descriptions for before the starting time indicates frequency hopping, one and only one of the following information elements may be present and applies before the starting time to all assigned channels:

Mobile Allocation, before time IE;

Frequency Short list, before time IE;

Frequency list, before time IE;

– Frequency channel sequence, before time IE.

If the starting time IE is present and at least one of the channel descriptions for before the starting time indicates frequency hopping, and none of the above mentioned IE is present, a frequency list for after the starting time must be present (see sub-clause 9.1.2.4), and this list applies also for the channels before the starting time.

9.1.15.7 Reference cell frequency list

If any of the mobile allocation information elements is present, then the cell channel description IE must be present. It is used to decode the mobile allocation IEs in the message.

In addition, if no information elements pertaining to before the starting time is present in the message, the frequency list defined by the cell channel description IE is used to decode the mobile allocation IEs in later messages received in the new cell until reception of a new reference cell frequency list or the new cell is left.

9.1.15.8 Real Time Difference

This information element shall appear if the Synchronization Indication information element indicates a pseudo-synchronous handover otherwise it shall be considered as an unnecessary information element.

9.1.15.9 Timing Advance

This information element shall appear if the "synchronization indication" element indicates a presynchronized handover. If not included for a presynchronized handover, then the default value as defined in 3GPP TS 05.10 shall be used. For other types of handover it shall be considered as an unnecessary information element.

9.1.15.10 Cipher Mode Setting

If this information element is omitted, the mode of ciphering is not changed after the mobile station has switched to the assigned channel.

Only applicable for mobile stations supporting VGCS talking:

The cipher mode setting IE shall not be included if a HANDOVER COMMAND message is sent on a VGCS channel or in a HANDOVER COMMAND message on a dedicated channel for a handover to a VGCS channel.

9.1.15.11 VGCS target mode indication

This information element is identified as "comprehension required". Only mobile stations supporting "VGCS talking" are required to accept the presence of the element. The presence of the element shall trigger an exception handling if received by a mobile station not supporting "VGCS talking".

This IE indicates which mode is to be used on the new channel (i.e. dedicated mode or group transmit mode). If this information element is not present, the mode shall be the same as on the previous channel.

The IE also indicates the group cipher key number for the group cipher key to be used on the new channel or if the new channel is non ciphered. If the information element is not present, the ciphering mode shall be the same as on the previous channel.

NOTE: A mobile station supporting VGCS Talking shall not consider a syntactical error if this IE is present and the channel mode is not speech.

9.1.15.12 Description of the multislot allocation

This information element is included if so indicated by the channel type and TDMA offset field in the Channel Description information element and is used to assign channels that do not carry a main signalling link in a multislot configuration. It indicates how the used timeslots are divided into separate channel sets.

If the Channel Description IE does not require the presence the information element it shall be considered as an IE unnecessary in the message.

If multislot configuration is indicated by the Channel Description IE but the Multislot Allocation IE is not present, all channels in the configuration belong to one channel set, "Channel Set 1".

NOTE: As a change of timeslot number cannot occur for the channel described for after the starting time, the Multislot Allocation IE does not have to be included more than once.

9.1.15.13 MultiRateconfiguration

This information element appears if the Mode of the First Channel indicates a multi-rate speech codec, and if the assigned configuration is new, i.e. it is different from the MultiRateconfiguration used in the serving cell. If the Mode of the First Channel indicates a multi-rate speech codec, and this IE is not included, then the mobile station shall assume that the MultiRateconfiguration has not changed.

9.1.50 System information type 10 $(ASCI)$

The understanding of messages of this message type is only required for mobile stations supporting VGCS listening and VBS listening. A mobile station not understanding the message shall treat it as unknown message.

Messages of this message type are optionally sent by the network in unacknowledged mode on the SACCH. SYSTEM INFORMATION TYPE 10 messages contain information about neighbour cells. When sent on the SACCH of a VGCS or VBS downlink, SYSTEM INFORMATION TYPE 10 messages address all mobile stations receiving that downlink within the cell. There may be different SYSTEM INFORMATION TYPE 10 messages sent on the same SACCH.

They are not standard layer 3 messages. They shall be transferred using the short header format for SACCH messages sent in unacknowledged mode specified in 3GPP TS 24.007.

Each SYSTEM INFORMATION TYPE 10 message defines a list of cells and may contain further information for cells of that list, a cell being identified by the pair of ARFCN and BSIC of the BCCH. Newer information about a cell received in SYSTEM INFORMATION TYPE 10 messages shall replace older information.

Figure 9.1.54.1: Measurement Information message content

Table 9.1.54.1: Measurement Information information element details.

BA_IND (1 bit), BCCH allocation sequence number indication.
The BA_IND is needed to allow the network to discriminate measurements results related to different GSM Neighbour Cell lists sent to the MS, as described in sub-clause 3.4.1.2.1 ‘The Use of parameters from the Measurement Information/SI2quater messages’. The value of this parameter is reflected in the ENHANCED MEASUREMENT REPORT message and in the MEASUREMENT REPORT message.

3G_BA_IND (1 bit), 3G Sequence Number.
The 3G_BA_IND parameter is needed to allow the network to discriminate measurement results related to different 3G Neighbour Cell lists sent to the MS, as described in sub-clause 3.4.1.2.1, ‘The Use of parameters from the Measurement Information/Si2quater messages’. The value of this parameter is reflected in the ENHANCED MEASUREMENT REPORT and MEASUREMENT REPORT messages.

MP_CHANGE_MARK (1 bit), measurement parameters change mark.
This parameter is used to indicate the MS a change of information concerning REPORT PRIORITY, MEASUREMENT INFORMATION and 3G MEASUREMENT INFORMATION, as described in sub-clause 3.4.1.2.1, ‘The Use of parameters from the Measurement Information/SI2 quater messages’.

MI_INDEX (4 bits) and MI_COUNT (4 bits)
The purpose of the MI_INDEX and MI_COUNT fields is to indicate the number of individual messages within the sequence of MEASUREMENT INFORMATION messages and to assign an index to identify each of them. The MI_INDEX field is binary coded, range 0 to 15, and provides an index to identify the individual MEASUREMENT INFORMATION message. The MI_COUNT field is binary coded, range 0 to 15, and provides the MI_INDEX value for the last (highest indexed) message in the sequence of MEASUREMENT INFORMATION messages.

PWRC, Power control indicator (1 bit field)
The use of this parameter is defined in 3GPP TS 05.08.

Bit
0 PWRC is not set
1 PWRC is set.

REPORT_TYPE (1bit)
This parameter is used to indicate to the mobile to use the Enhanced Measurement report or Measurement report messages for reporting:

Bit
0 The MS shall use the Enhanced Measurement Report message for reporting if at least one BSIC is allocated to each BA (list) frequency. Otherwise, the Measurement Report message shall be used.
1 The MS shall use the Measurement Report message for reporting.

REPORTING_RATE (1 bit)
This parameter is used for measurements, see 3GPP TS 05.08.

Bit
0 SACCH rate reporting
1 Reduced reporting rate allowed.

INVALID_BSIC_REPORTING (1 bit)
This field specifies if cells with invalid BSIC and allowed NCC part of BSIC are allowed to be reported or not, see 3GPP TS 05.08.

Bit
0 Report on cells with invalid BSIC and allowed NCC part of BSIC is not allowed.
1 Report on cells with invalid BSIC and allowed NCC part of BSIC is allowed.

3G Neighbour Cell Description:

The building of the 3G Neighbour Cell list and the ordering of indices within each Radio Access Technology is described in sub-clause 3.4.1.2.1.1, ‘Deriving the 3G Neighbour Cell list from the 3G Neighbour Cell Description’.

3G-WAIT (3 bits)
When 3G_BA_IND is received in a changed state, this parameter indicates the number of instances of MEASUREMENT INFORMATION messages that contain 3G Neighbour Cell Description which shall be received before the MS reports on the new 3G Neighbour Cell list. Two different instances of MEASUREMENT INFORMATION messages are two MEASUREMENT INFORMATION messages with different MI_INDEX. See sub-clause 3.4.1.2.1.

bit
3 2 1
0 0 0 1 instance that contain 3G Neighbour Cell Description shall be received
0 0 1 2 instances that contain Neighbour Cell Description shall be received
1 1 1 8 instances that contain Neighbour Cell description shall be received

Index_Start_3G (7 bit)
This optional information element indicates the binary value of the first index to use to build this instance of the 3G Neighbour Cell list. When missing, the value 0 is assumed. See sub-clause 3.4.1.2.1.1.

Absolute_Index_Start_EMR (7 bit)
This parameter indicates in binary the value to be added to the indexes of the 3G Neighbour Cell list for reporting 3G Cells with the ENHANCED MEASUREMENT REPORT message (see sub-clause 3.4.1.2.1.1). If different values are received for this parameter in different instances of this message, the instance with the highest index shall be used. If this parameter is absent in all instances of the message, the value "0" shall be used.

NOTE: This parameter is not used for reporting 3G Cells with the MEASUREMENT REPORT message, see sub-clause 10.5.2.20, ‘Measurement Results’.

UTRAN FDD Description:

Bandwidth_FDD (3bit field)
This optional information element will be used for future releases of the protocol. When missing, this indicates the present FDD bandwidth. When present, this shall not be considered as an error; indices of the 3G Neighbour Cell list shall be incremented accordingly.

FDD_ARFCN (14 bit field)
This optional information element is defined as the UARFCN in 3GPP TS 25.101. Any non-supported frequency shall not be considered as an error; indices of the 3G Neighbour Cell list shall be incremented accordingly.

FDD_Indic0, information 0 indicator (1 bit):
This field indicates if the FDD_CELL_INFORMATION parameter value ‘0000000000’ is a member of the set.

Bit
0 parameter value ‘0000000000’ is not a member of the set
1 parameter value ‘0000000000’ is a member of the set

NOTE: This bit FDD_Indic0 is equivalent to the bit F0 bit in the frequency list information element (see sub-clause 10.5.2.13.3).

NR_OF_FDD_CELLS (5 bit field)
This field defines the number of FDD_CELL_INFORMATION parameters.

FDD_CELL_INFORMATION Field (p bit field)
This field allows to compute a set of 10-bit-long FDD_CELL_INFORMATION parameters, re-using the Range 1024 format compression algorithm, see annex J: ‘Algorithm to encode frequency list information’. The formulas for decoding are given in the ‘Range 1024 format’ sub-clause 10.5.2.13.3. The consecutive parameters of this field are concatenated, starting with w1, and then w2, w3…

The total number of bits p of this field depends on the value of the parameter NR_OF_FDD_CELLS = n, as follows:

n p n p n p n p
0 0 5 44 10 81 15 116
1 10 6 52 11 88 16 122
2 19 7 60 12 95 17-31 0
3 28 8 67 13 102 4 36 9 74 14 109

Table 9.1.54.1a.

If n=0 and FDD_Indic0=0, this indicates the 3G Neighbour Cell list index for report on RSSI, see 3GPP TS 05.08.

If n is equal or greater than 17, this shall not be considered as an error; the corresponding index in the 3G Neighbour Cell list shall be incremented by one.

For each (10-bit-long) decoded Parameter, bits 1-9 are the Scrambling Code and bit 10 is the corresponding Diversity Parameter.

Scrambling Code (9 bit field)
This parameter indicates the Primary Scrambling Code as defined in 3GPP TS 25.213.

Diversity (1 bit field)
This parameter indicates if diversity is applied for the cell:

BSIC Description
BSIC parameters are used to create the GSM Neighbour Cell list, see sub-clause 3.4.1.2.1.2 ‘Deriving the GSM Neighbour Cell list from the BSICs and the BA (list)’.

The first BSIC parameter received in the structure relates to the index in the BA(list) frequency referenced by the parameter BA_Index_Start_BSIC (index 0 if BA_Index_Start_BSIC is missing). Then the FREQUENCY_SCROLLING bit indicates whether the next BSIC in the structure relates to the same frequency in the BA(list), with ‘0’, or if the next BSIC in the structure relates to the subsequent frequency in the BA (list), with ‘1’. Each next BSIC received within the structure creates a subsequent GSM Cell list index.

When BSIC information is received in different instances, the first BSIC referring to a BA (list) index in one instance shall be allocated the subsequent GSM Cell list index than the last BSIC referring to a BA (list) index in the previously numbered message instance.

GSM Cell list index = 0 is defined by the first BSIC parameter received in the lowest numbered message instance.
