8.3.1.1.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clauses 5.3.5.3, 5.5.4.1, 5.5.4.2 and 5.5.5.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.3]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message does not include the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the measConfig:

2> perform the measurement configuration procedure as specified in 5.5.2;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.1]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> else:

3> if the corresponding measObject concerns EUTRA:

4> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is not included in the blackCellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig, while the VarMeasReportList does not include an entry for this measId (a first cell triggers the event):

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

4> stop the periodical reporting timer for this measId, if running;

2> upon expiry of the periodical reporting timer for this measId:

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 2: The UE does not stop the periodical reporting with triggerType set to ‘event’ or to ‘periodical’ while the corresponding measurement is not performed due to the serving cell RSRP being equal to or better than s-Measure or due to the measurement gap not being setup.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.2]

The UE shall:

1> consider the entering condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A1-1, as specified below, is fulfilled;

1> consider the leaving condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A1-2, as specified below, is fulfilled;

InequalityA1-1 (Entering condition)

InequalityA1-2 (Leaving condition)

The variables in the formula are defined as follows:

Ms is the measurement result of the serving cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Hys is the hysteresis parameter for this event (i.e. hysteresis as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Thresh is the threshold parameter for this event (i.e. a1-Threshold as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Ms is expressed in dBm in case of RSRP, or in dB in case of RSRQ.

Hys is expressed in dB.

Thresh is expressed in the same unit as Ms.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.5]

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> if the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is less than the reportAmount as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId;

2> start the periodical reporting timer with the value of reportInterval as defined within the reportConfig for this measId;

1> submit the MeasurementReport message to lower layers for transmission, upon which the procedure ends.

The UE shall:

1> consider the entering condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-1, as specified below, is fulfilled;

1> consider the leaving condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-2, as specified below, is fulfilled;

Inequality A3-1 (Entering condition)

Inequality A3-2 (Leaving condition)

The variables in the formula are defined as follows:

Mn is the measurement result of the neighbouring cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofn is the frequency specific offset of the frequency of the neighbour cell (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell).

Ocn is the cell specific offset of the neighbour cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell), and set to zero if not configured for the neighbour cell.

Ms is the measurement result of the serving cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofs is the frequency specific offset of the serving frequency (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency).

Ocs is the cell specific offset of the serving cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency), and is set to zero if not configured for the serving cell.

Hys is the hysteresis parameter for this event (i.e. hysteresis as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Off is the offset parameter for this event (i.e. a3-Offset as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Mn, Ms are expressed in dBm in case of RSRP, or in dB in case of RSRQ.

Ofn, Ocn, Ofs, Ocs, Hys, Off are expressed in dB.

The purpose of this procedure is to transfer measurement results from the UE to E-UTRAN.

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> else:

4> include the applicable cells for which the new measurement results became available since the last periodical reporting or since the measurement was initiated or reset;

NOTE: The reliability of the report (i.e. the certainty it contains the strongest cells on the concerned frequency) depends on the measurement configuration i.e. the reportInterval. The related performance requirements are specified in TS 36.133 [16].

4> consider a neighbouring cell on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is included in the cellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId (i.e. the cell is included in the white-list);

NOTE 0: The UE may also consider a neighbouring cell on the associated UTRA frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is included in the csg-allowedReportingCells within the VarMeasConfig for this measId, if configured in the corresponding measObjectUTRA (i.e. the cell is included in the range of physical cell identities for which reporting is allowed).

3> else if the corresponding measObject concerns GERAN:

4> consider a neighbouring cell on the associated set of frequencies to be applicable when the concerned cell matches the ncc-Permitted defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig, while the VarMeasReportList does not include an measurement reporting entry for this measId (a first cell triggers the event):

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> remove the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> if reportOnLeave is set to TRUE for the corresponding reporting configuration:

4> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 1: If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells‘, the UE initiates a first measurement report immediately after the quantity to be reported becomes available for at least either serving cell or one of the applicable cells. If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON‘, the UE initiates a first measurement report when it has determined the strongest cells on the associated frequency.

2> upon expiry of the periodical reporting timer for this measId:

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportCGI‘ and if the UE acquired the information needed to set all fields of cgi-Info for the requested cell:

8.3.1.4 Measurement configuration control and reporting / Intra E-UTRAN measurements / Periodic reporting (intra and inter-frequency measurements)

8.3.1.4.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state and measurement configured for periodic reporting of intra frequency cells and inter frequency cells on specified frequency }

ensure that {

when { The UE receives reference signal power for cells on the serving frequency and cells on the frequency where measurements are configured }

then { UE sends MeasurementReport message at regular intervals for these cells }

}

(2)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state and a MeasurementReport message for a configured periodic measurement reporting of intra and inter frequency cells was sent }

ensure that {

when { A previously reported cell become unavailable or the UE receives reference signal power on a reported frequency for a cell which was previously not reported }

then { UE sends MeasurementReport message at regular intervals for the available intra and inter frequency cells }

}

(3)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state and periodic measurement reporting ongoing}

ensure that {

when { The UE receives a RRCConnectionReconfiguration message removing measIds for periodic reporting }

then { UE stops sending MeasurementReport messages for these measIds }

}

8.3.1.4.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clauses 5.3.5.3, 5.5.2.2, 5.5.4.1 and 5.5.5.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.3]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message does not include the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the measConfig:

2> perform the Measurement configuration procedure as specified in 5.5.2;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.2.2]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId value included in the received measIdToRemoveList that is part of the current UE configuration in varMeasConfig:

2> remove the entry with the matching measId from the measIdList within the VarMeasConfig;

2> remove the measurement reporting entry for this measId from the VarMeasReportList, if included;

2> stop the periodical reporting timer or timer T321, whichever one is running, and reset the associated information (e.g. timeToTrigger) for this measId;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.1]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> else:

3> if the corresponding measObject concerns E-UTRA:

4> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is not included in the blackCellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’ and if a (first) measurement result is available for one or more applicable cells:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 1: If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’, the UE initiates a first measurement report immediately after the quantity to be reported becomes available for at least either serving cell or one of the applicable cells. If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’, the UE initiates a first measurement report when it has determined the strongest cells on the associated frequency.

2> upon expiry of the periodical reporting timer for this measId:

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 2: The UE does not stop the periodical reporting with triggerType set to ‘event’ or to ‘periodical’ while the corresponding measurement is not performed due to the serving cell RSRP being equal to or better than s-Measure or due to the measurement gap not being setup.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.5]

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measuredResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

2> set the measResultsNeighCells to include the best neighbouring cells up to maxReportCells in accordance with the following:

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’:

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> else:

4> include the applicable cells for which the new measurement results became available since the last periodical reporting or since the measurement was initiated or reset;

NOTE: The reliability of the report (i.e. the certainty it contains the strongest cells on the concerned frequency) depends on the measurement configuration i.e. the reportInterval. The related performance requirements are specified in TS 36.133 [16].

3> for each cell that is included in the measResultsNeighCells, include the physCellId;

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’; or the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’:

4> for each included cell, include the layer 3 filtered measured results in accordance with the reportConfig for this measId, ordered as follows:

5> if the measObject associated with this measId concerns E-UTRA:

6> set the measResult to include the quantity(ies) indicated in the reportQuantity within the concerned reportConfig in order of decreasing triggerQuantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> if the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is less than to reportAmount as defined corresponding reportConfig for this measId:

2> start the periodical reporting timer with the value of reportInterval as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId;

1> submit the MEASUREMENT REPORT message to lower layers for transmission, upon which the procedure ends.

3> else if the corresponding measObject concerns UTRA or CDMA2000:

4> consider a neighbouring cell on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is included in the cellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId (i.e. the cell is included in the white-list);

3> else if the corresponding measObject concerns GERAN:

4> consider a neighbouring cell on the associated set of frequencies to be applicable when the concerned cell matches the ncc-Permitted defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig, while the VarMeasReportList does not include an measurement reporting entry for this measId (a first cell triggers the event):

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’ and if the leaving condition applicable for this event is fulfilled for one or more of the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined within the VarMeasConfig for this event:

3> remove the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> if reportOnLeave is set to TRUE for the corresponding reporting configuration:

4> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

3> if the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is empty:

4> remove the measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

4> stop the periodical reporting timer for this measId, if running;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’ and if a (first) measurement result is available for one or more applicable cells:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 1: If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’, the UE initiates a first measurement report immediately after the quantity to be reported becomes available for at least either serving cell or one of the applicable cells. If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’, the UE initiates a first measurement report when it has determined the strongest cells on the associated frequency.

2> upon expiry of the periodical reporting timer for this measId:

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportCGI’ and if the UE acquired the information needed to set all fields of cellGlobalId for the requested cell:

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 2: The UE does not stop the periodical reporting with triggerType set to ‘event’ or to ‘periodical’ while the corresponding measurement is not performed due to the serving cell RSRP being equal to or better than s-Measure or due to the measurement gap not being setup.

NOTE 3: If the UE is configured with DRX, the UE may delay the measurement reporting for event triggered and periodical triggered measurements until the Active Time, which is defined in TS 36.321 [6].

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.4]

The UE shall:

1> consider the entering condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-1, as specified below, is fulfilled;

1> consider the leaving condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-2, as specified below, is fulfilled;

Inequality A3-1 (Entering condition)

Inequality A3-2 (Leaving condition)

The variables in the formula are defined as follows:

Mn is the measurement result of the neighbouring cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofn is the frequency specific offset of the frequency of the neighbour cell (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell).

Ocn is the cell specific offset of the neighbour cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell), and set to zero if not configured for the neighbour cell.

Figure 5.5.5-1: Measurement reporting

The purpose of this procedure is to transfer measurement results from the UE to E-UTRAN.

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

2> set the measResultNeighCells to include the best neighbouring cells up to maxReportCells in accordance with the following:

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’:

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> else:

4> include the applicable cells for which the new measurement results became available since the last periodical reporting or since the measurement was initiated or reset;

NOTE: The reliability of the report (i.e. the certainty it contains the strongest cells on the concerned frequency) depends on the measurement configuration i.e. the reportInterval. The related performance requirements are specified in TS 36.133 [16].

3> for each cell that is included in the measResultNeighCells, include the physCellId;

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’; or the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’:

5> if the measObject associated with this measId concerns E-UTRA:

6> set the measResult to include the quantity(ies) indicated in the reportQuantity within the concerned reportConfig in order of decreasing triggerQuantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

5> else:

6> set the measResult to the quantity as configured for the concerned RAT within the quantityConfig in order of decreasing quantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

3> else if the purpose is set to ‘reportCGI’:

4> if the mandatory present fields of the cellGlobalId for the cell indicated by the cellForWhichToReportCGI in the associated measObject have been obtained:

5> include the cgi-Info containing all the fields that have been successfully acquired;

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> if the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is less than the reportAmount as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId:

2> start the periodical reporting timer with the value of reportInterval as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId;

1> else:

Ocs is the cell specific offset of the serving cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency), and is set to zero if not configured for the serving cell.

Hys is the hysteresis parameter for this event (i.e. hysteresis as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Off is the offset parameter for this event (i.e. a3-Offset as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Mn, Ms are expressed in dBm in case of RSRP, or in dB in case of RSRQ.

Ofn, Ocn, Ofs, Ocs, Hys, Off are expressed in dB.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.5]

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

2> set the measResultNeighCells to include the best neighbouring cells up to maxReportCells in accordance with the following:

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘:

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> else:

4> include the applicable cells for which the new measurement results became available since the last periodical reporting or since the measurement was initiated or reset;

NOTE: The reliability of the report (i.e. the certainty it contains the strongest cells on the concerned frequency) depends on the measurement configuration i.e. the reportInterval. The related performance requirements are specified in TS 36.133 [16].

3> for each cell that is included in the measResultNeighCells, include the physCellId;

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘; or the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells‘ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON‘:

4> for each included cell, include the layer 3 filtered measured results in accordance with the reportConfig for this measId, ordered as follows:

5> if the measObject associated with this measId concerns E-UTRA:

6> set the measResult to include the quantity(ies) indicated in the reportQuantity within the concerned reportConfig in order of decreasing triggerQuantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

5> else:

6> set the measResult to the quantity as configured for the concerned RAT within the quantityConfig in order of either decreasing quantity for UTRA and GERAN or increasing quantity for CDMA2000 pilotStrength, i.e. the best cell is included first;

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> if the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is less than the reportAmount as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId:

2> start the periodical reporting timer with the value of reportInterval as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId;

8.3.1.7 Measurement configuration control and reporting / Intra E-UTRAN measurements / Blacklisting

8.3.1.7.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state and measurement configured for event A3 reporting }

ensure that {

when { Blacklisted neighbour cell satisfies entry condition for event A3 }

then { It is not considered in event evaluation and UE does not send MeasurementReport message }

}

(2)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state and measurement reporting triggered by event A3 is ongoing}

ensure that {

when { Blacklisted neighbour cell satisfies entry condition for event A3 }

then { It is not considered in measurement reporting }

}

8.3.1.7.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clauses 5.5.1, 5.5.4.1, and 5.5.5.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.1]

The UE reports measurement information in accordance with the measurement configuration as provided by E-UTRAN. E-UTRAN provides the measurement configuration applicable for a UE in RRC_CONNECTED state by means of dedicated signalling, i.e. using the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message.

– For intra-frequency and inter-frequency measurements a measurement object is a single E-UTRA carrier frequency. Associated with this carrier frequency, E-UTRAN can configure a list of cell specific offsets and a list of ‘blacklisted’ cells. Blacklisted cells are not considered in event evaluation or measurement reporting.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.1]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> else:

3> if the corresponding measObject concerns EUTRA:

4> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is not included in the blackCellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeaConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig while the VarMeasReportList does not include a measurement reporting entry for this measId (a first cell triggers the event):

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells not included in the cellsTriggeredList for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig (a subsequent cell triggers the event):

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’ and if the leaving condition applicable for this event is fulfilled for one or more of the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined within the VarMeasConfig for this event:

3> remove the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> if reportOnLeave is set to TRUE for the corresponding reporting configuration:

4> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

3> if the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is empty:

4> remove the measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

  1. stop the periodical reporting timer for this measId, if running;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.5]

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the IE measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

2> set the measResultsNeighCells to include the best neighbouring cells up to maxReportCells in accordance with the following:

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’:

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> for each cell that is included in the measResultsNeighCells, include the physCellId;

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’; or the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’:

4> for each included cell include the layer 3 filtered measured results in accordance with the reportConfigList for this measId, ordered as follows:

5> if the measObject associated with this measId concerns E-UTRA:

6> set the measResult to include the quantity(ies) indicated in the reportQuantity within the concerned reportConfig in order of decreasing triggerQuantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> submit the MeasurementReport message to lower layers for transmission, upon which the procedure ends.

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.4, 5.5.2.2, 5.5.2.6 and 5.5.4.4.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.4]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> stop timer T310, if running;

1> start timer T304 with the timer value set to t304, as included in the mobilityControlInfo;

1> if the carrierFreq is included:

2> consider the target cell to be one on the frequency indicated by the carrierFreq with a physical cell identity indicated by the targetPhysCellId;

1> else:

2> consider the target cell to be one on the current frequency with a physical cell identity indicated by the targetPhysCellId;

1> start synchronising to the DL of the target cell;

8.3.1.9a Measurement configuration control and reporting / Intra Frequency measurements / Intra-frequency handover / IE measurement configuration not present / Single Frequency operation

8.3.1.9a.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE having completed the radio bearer establishment, initial security activation procedure and performed the intra frequency measurement }

ensure that {
when { UE receives an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message including a mobilityControlInfo and not including a measConfig }

then { UE performs intra frequency handover and continues the intra frequency measurement }

}

}

8.3.1.9a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.4 and 5.5.6.1.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.4]

The UE shall:

1> consider the entering condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-1, as specified below, is fulfilled;

1> consider the leaving condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-2, as specified below, is fulfilled;

Inequality A3-1 (Entering condition)

Inequality A3-2 (Leaving condition)

The variables in the formula are defined as follows:

Mn is the measurement result of the neighbouring cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofn is the frequency specific offset of the frequency of the neighbour cell (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell).

Ocn is the cell specific offset of the neighbour cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell), and set to zero if not configured for the neighbour cell.

Ms is the measurement result of the serving cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofs is the frequency specific offset of the serving frequency (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency).

Ocs is the cell specific offset of the serving cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency), and is set to zero if not configured for the serving cell.

Hys is the hysteresis parameter for this event (i.e. hysteresis as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Off is the offset parameter for this event (i.e. a3-Offset as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Mn, Ms are expressed in dBm in case of RSRP, or in dB in case of RSRQ.

Ofn, Ocn, Ofs, Ocs, Hys, Off are expressed in dB.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.6.1]

E-UTRAN applies the handover procedure as follows:

– when performing the handover procedure, as specified in 5.3.5.4, ensure that a measObjectId corresponding to the handover target carrier frequency is configured as a result of the procedures described in this sub-clause and in 5.3.5.4;

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘periodical‘:

3> remove this measId from the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

1> if the procedure was triggered due to inter-frequency handover or successful re-establishment to an inter-frequency cell, update the measId values in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig as follows:

2> if a measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency exists in the measObjectList within VarMeasConfig:

3> for each measId value in the measIdList:

4> if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency;

4> else if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

2> else:

3> remove all measId values that are linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

1> remove all measurement reporting entries within VarMeasReportList;

1> reset the periodical reporting timer or timer T321, whichever one is running, as well as associated information (e.g. timeToTrigger) for all measId;

1> release the measurement gaps, if activated;

NOTE: If the UE requires measurement gaps to perform inter-frequency or inter-RAT measurements, the UE resumes the inter-frequency and inter-RAT measurements after the E-UTRAN has setup the measurement gaps.

8.3.1.11 Measurement configuration control and reporting / Intra E-UTRAN measurements / Continuation of the measurements after RRC connection re-establishment

8.3.1.11.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE having completed the radio bearer establishment, initial security activation procedure and performed the intra frequency measurement and after receiving an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message including a mobilityControlInfo indicating a different E-UTRA cell having attempted intra frequency handover}

ensure that {
when { UE detects handover failure and the intra frequency cell is selectable }

then {UE performs RRC Connection Re-establishment, continues the intra frequency measurement }

}

(2)

with { UE having completed the radio bearer establishment, initial security activation procedure and performed the inter frequency measurement and after receiving an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message including a mobilityControlInfo indicating a different E-UTRA cell having attempted intra frequency handover}

ensure that {
when { UE detects handover failure and the intra frequency cell is selectable }

then {UE performs RRC Connection Re-establishment, continues the inter frequency measurement after the activation of the measurement gaps }

}

8.3.1.11.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.4, 5.3.5.6, 5.3.7.2 and 5.5.6.1.

[TS 36.331,clause 5.3.5.4]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> stop timer T310, if running;

1> start timer T304 with the timer value set to t304, as included in the mobilityControlInfo;

1> if the carrierFreq is included:

2> consider the target cell to be one on the frequency indicated by the carrierFreq with a physical cell identity indicated by the targetPhysCellId;

1> else:

2> consider the target cell to be one on the current frequency with a physical cell identity indicated by the targetPhysCellId;

1> start synchronising to the DL of the target cell;

NOTE 1: The UE should perform the handover as soon as possible following the reception of the RRC message triggering the handover, which could be before confirming successful reception (HARQ and ARQ) of this message.

1> reset MAC;

1> re-establish PDCP for all RBs that are established;

NOTE 2: The handling of the radio bearers after the successful completion of the PDCP re-establishment, e.g. the re-transmission of unacknowledged PDCP SDUs (as well as the associated status reporting), the handling of the SN and the HFN, is specified in TS 36.323 [8].

1> re-establish RLC for all RBs that are established;

1> apply the value of the newUE-Identity as the C-RNTI;

1> configure lower layers in accordance with the received radioResourceConfigCommon;

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the radioResourceConfigDedicated:

2> perform the radio resource configuration procedure as specified in 5.3.10;

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the measConfig:

2> perform the measurement configuration procedure as specified in 5.5.2;

1> submit the RRCConnectionReconfigurationComplete message to lower layers for transmission;

1> if MAC successfully completes the random access procedure:

2> stop timer T304;

2> apply the parts of the configuration that do not require the UE to know the SFN of the target cell;

2> apply the parts of the measurement and the radio resource configuration that require the UE to know the SFN of the target cell (e.g. measurement gaps, periodic CQI reporting, scheduling request configuration, sounding RS configuration), if any, upon acquiring the SFN of the target cell;

2> the procedure ends;

NOTE 3: The UE is not required to determine the SFN of the target cell by acquiring system information from that cell before performing RACH access in the target cell.

[TS 36.331,clause 5.3.5.6]

The UE shall:

1> if T304 expires (handover failure):

NOTE: Following T304 expiry any dedicated preamble, if provided within the rach-ConfigDedicated, is not available for use by the UE anymore.

2> revert back to the configuration used in the source cell, excluding the configuration configured by the physicalConfigDedicated, the mac-MainConfig and the sps-Config;

2> initiate the connection re-establishment procedure as specified in 5.3.7, upon which the RRC connection reconfiguration procedure ends;

[TS 36.331,clause 5.3.7.2]

The UE shall only initiate the procedure when AS security has been activated. The UE initiates the procedure when one of the following conditions is met:

1> upon detecting radio link failure, in accordance with 5.3.11; or

1> upon handover failure, in accordance with 5.3.5.6; or

1> upon mobility from E-UTRA failure, in accordance with 5.4.3.5; or

1> upon integrity check failure indication from lower layers; or

1> upon an RRC connection reconfiguration failure, in accordance with 5.3.5.5;

Upon initiation of the procedure, the UE shall:

1> stop timer T310, if running;

1> start timer T311;

1> suspend all RBs except SRB0;

1> reset MAC;

1> apply the default physical channel configuration as specified in 9.2.4;

1> apply the default semi-persistent scheduling configuration as specified in 9.2.3;

1> apply the default MAC main configuration as specified in 9.2.2;

1> perform cell selection in accordance with the cell selection process as specified in TS 36.304 [4];

[TS 36.331,clause 5.5.6.1]

E-UTRAN applies the re-establishment procedure as follows:

– when performing the connection re-establishment procedure, as specified in 5.3.7, ensure that a measObjectId corresponding to the target carrier frequency is configured as a result of the procedure described in this sub-clause and the subsequent connection reconfiguration procedure immediately following the re-establishment procedure;

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘periodical’:

3> remove this measId from the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

1> if the procedure was triggered due to inter-frequency handover or successful re-establishment to an inter-frequency cell, update the measId values in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig as follows:

2> if a measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency exists in the measObjectList within VarMeasConfig:

3> for each measId value in the measIdList:

4> if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency;

4> else if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

2> else:

3> remove all measId values that are linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

1> remove all measurement reporting entries within VarMeasReportList;

1> reset the periodical reporting timer or timer T321, whichever one is running, as well as associated information (e.g. timeToTrigger) for all measId;

1> release the measurement gaps, if activated;

NOTE: If the UE requires measurement gaps to perform inter-frequency or inter-RAT measurements, the UE resumes the inter-frequency and inter-RAT measurements after the E-UTRAN has setup the measurement gaps.

8.3.1.11a Measurement configuration control and reporting / Intra Frequency measurements / Continuation of the measurements after RRC connection re-establishment / Single Frequency operation

8.3.1.11a.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE having completed the radio bearer establishment, initial security activation procedure and performed the intra frequency measurement and after receiving an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message including a mobilityControlInfo indicating a different E-UTRA cell having attempted intra frequency handover}

ensure that {
when { UE detects handover failure and the intra frequency cell is selectable }

then {UE performs RRC Connection Re-establishment, continues the intra frequency measurement }

}

8.3.1.11a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.4, 5.3.5.6, 5.3.7.2 and 5.5.6.1.

[TS 36.331,clause 5.3.5.4]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> stop timer T310, if running;

1> start timer T304 with the timer value set to t304, as included in the mobilityControlInfo;

1> if the carrierFreq is included:

2> consider the target cell to be one on the frequency indicated by the carrierFreq with a physical cell identity indicated by the targetPhysCellId;

1> else:

2> consider the target cell to be one on the current frequency with a physical cell identity indicated by the targetPhysCellId;

1> start synchronising to the DL of the target cell;

NOTE 1: The UE should perform the handover as soon as possible following the reception of the RRC message triggering the handover, which could be before confirming successful reception (HARQ and ARQ) of this message.

1> reset MAC;

1> re-establish PDCP for all RBs that are established;

NOTE 2: The handling of the radio bearers after the successful completion of the PDCP re-establishment, e.g. the re-transmission of unacknowledged PDCP SDUs (as well as the associated status reporting), the handling of the SN and the HFN, is specified in TS 36.323 [8].

1> re-establish RLC for all RBs that are established;

1> apply the value of the newUE-Identity as the C-RNTI;

1> configure lower layers in accordance with the received radioResourceConfigCommon;

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the radioResourceConfigDedicated:

2> perform the radio resource configuration procedure as specified in 5.3.10;

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the measConfig:

2> perform the measurement configuration procedure as specified in 5.5.2;

1> submit the RRCConnectionReconfigurationComplete message to lower layers for transmission;

1> if MAC successfully completes the random access procedure:

2> stop timer T304;

2> apply the parts of the configuration that do not require the UE to know the SFN of the target cell;

2> apply the parts of the measurement and the radio resource configuration that require the UE to know the SFN of the target cell (e.g. measurement gaps, periodic CQI reporting, scheduling request configuration, sounding RS configuration), if any, upon acquiring the SFN of the target cell;

2> the procedure ends;

NOTE 3: The UE is not required to determine the SFN of the target cell by acquiring system information from that cell before performing RACH access in the target cell.

[TS 36.331,clause 5.3.5.6]

The UE shall:

1> if T304 expires (handover failure):

NOTE: Following T304 expiry any dedicated preamble, if provided within the rach-ConfigDedicated, is not available for use by the UE anymore.

2> revert back to the configuration used in the source cell, excluding the configuration configured by the physicalConfigDedicated, the mac-MainConfig and the sps-Config;

2> initiate the connection re-establishment procedure as specified in 5.3.7, upon which the RRC connection reconfiguration procedure ends;

[TS 36.331,clause 5.3.7.2]

The UE shall only initiate the procedure when AS security has been activated. The UE initiates the procedure when one of the following conditions is met:

1> upon detecting radio link failure, in accordance with 5.3.11; or

1> upon handover failure, in accordance with 5.3.5.6; or

1> upon mobility from E-UTRA failure, in accordance with 5.4.3.5; or

1> upon integrity check failure indication from lower layers; or

1> upon an RRC connection reconfiguration failure, in accordance with 5.3.5.5;

Upon initiation of the procedure, the UE shall:

1> stop timer T310, if running;

1> start timer T311;

1> suspend all RBs except SRB0;

1> reset MAC;

1> apply the default physical channel configuration as specified in 9.2.4;

1> apply the default semi-persistent scheduling configuration as specified in 9.2.3;

1> apply the default MAC main configuration as specified in 9.2.2;

1> perform cell selection in accordance with the cell selection process as specified in TS 36.304 [4];

[TS 36.331,clause 5.5.6.1]

E-UTRAN applies the re-establishment procedure as follows:

– when performing the connection re-establishment procedure, as specified in 5.3.7, ensure that a measObjectId corresponding to the target carrier frequency is configured as a result of the procedure described in this sub-clause and the subsequent connection reconfiguration procedure immediately following the re-establishment procedure;

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘periodical’:

3> remove this measId from the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

1> if the procedure was triggered due to inter-frequency handover or successful re-establishment to an inter-frequency cell, update the measId values in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig as follows:

2> if a measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency exists in the measObjectList within VarMeasConfig:

3> for each measId value in the measIdList:

4> if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency;

4> else if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

2> else:

3> remove all measId values that are linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

1> remove all measurement reporting entries within VarMeasReportList;

1> reset the periodical reporting timer or timer T321, whichever one is running, as well as associated information (e.g. timeToTrigger) for all measId;

1> release the measurement gaps, if activated;

NOTE: If the UE requires measurement gaps to perform inter-frequency or inter-RAT measurements, the UE resumes the inter-frequency and inter-RAT measurements after the E-UTRAN has setup the measurement gaps.

3> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency to be applicable;

2> else if the corresponding reportConfig includes a purpose set to ‘reportCGI’:

3> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency/ set of frequencies (GERAN) which has a physical cell identity matching the value of the cellForWhichToReportCGI included in the corresponding measObject within the VarMeasConfig to be applicable;

2> else:

3> if the corresponding measObject concerns E-UTRA:

4> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is not included in the blackCellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

3> else if the corresponding measObject concerns UTRA or CDMA2000:

4> consider a neighbouring cell on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is included in the cellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId (i.e. the cell is included in the white-list);

3> else if the corresponding measObject concerns GERAN:

4> consider a neighbouring cell on the associated set of frequencies to be applicable when the concerned cell matches the ncc-Permitted defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig, while the VarMeasReportList does not include an measurement reporting entry for this measId (a first cell triggers the event):

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells not included in the cellsTriggeredList for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig (a subsequent cell triggers the event):

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’ and if the leaving condition applicable for this event is fulfilled for one or more of the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined within the VarMeasConfig for this event:

3> remove the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> if reportOnLeave is set to TRUE for the corresponding reporting configuration:

4> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

3> if the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is empty:

4> remove the measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

4> stop the periodical reporting timer for this measId, if running;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’ and if a (first) measurement result is available for one or more applicable cells:

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> upon expiry of the T321 for this measId:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 2: The UE does not stop the periodical reporting with triggerType set to ‘event’ or to ‘periodical’ while the corresponding measurement is not performed due to the serving cell RSRP being equal to or better than s-Measure or due to the measurement gap not being setup.

NOTE 3: If the UE is configured with DRX, the UE may delay the measurement reporting for event triggered and periodical triggered measurements until the Active Time, which is defined in TS 36.321 [6].

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.4]

The UE shall:

1> consider the entering condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-1, as specified below, is fulfilled;

1> consider the leaving condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-2, as specified below, is fulfilled;

Inequality A3-1 (Entering condition)

Inequality A3-2 (Leaving condition)

The variables in the formula are defined as follows:

Mn is the measurement result of the neighbouring cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofn is the frequency specific offset of the frequency of the neighbour cell (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell).

Ocn is the cell specific offset of the neighbour cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell), and set to zero if not configured for the neighbour cell.

Ms is the measurement result of the serving cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofs is the frequency specific offset of the serving frequency (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency).

Ocs is the cell specific offset of the serving cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency), and is set to zero if not configured for the serving cell.

Hys is the hysteresis parameter for this event (i.e. hysteresis as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Off is the offset parameter for this event (i.e. a3-Offset as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Mn, Ms are expressed in dBm in case of RSRP, or in dB in case of RSRQ.

Ofn, Ocn, Ofs, Ocs, Hys, Off are expressed in dB.

The purpose of this procedure is to transfer measurement results from the UE to E-UTRAN.

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

2> set the measResultNeighCells to include the best neighbouring cells up to maxReportCells in accordance with the following:

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’:

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> else:

4> include the applicable cells for which the new measurement results became available since the last periodical reporting or since the measurement was initiated or reset;

NOTE 4: The reliability of the report (i.e. the certainty it contains the strongest cells on the concerned frequency) depends on the measurement configuration i.e. the reportInterval. The related performance requirements are specified in TS 36.133 [16].

3> for each cell that is included in the measResultNeighCells, include the physCellId;

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’; or the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’:

4> for each included cell, include the layer 3 filtered measured results in accordance with the reportConfig for this measId, ordered as follows:

5> if the measObject associated with this measId concerns E-UTRA:

6> set the measResult to include the quantity(ies) indicated in the reportQuantity within the concerned reportConfig in order of decreasing triggerQuantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

5> else:

6> set the measResult to the quantity as configured for the concerned RAT within the quantityConfig in order of decreasing quantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

3> else if the purpose is set to ‘reportCGI’:

4> if the mandatory present fields of the cellGlobalId for the cell indicated by the cellForWhichToReportCGI in the associated measObject have been obtained:

5> include the cgi-Info containing all the fields that have been successfully acquired;

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> if the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is less than the reportAmount as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId:

2> start the periodical reporting timer with the value of reportInterval as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId;

1> else:

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘periodical’:

3> remove the entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> remove this measId from the measIdList within VarMeasConfig;

1> if the measured results are for CDMA2000 HRPD:

8.3.1.13 Measurement configuration control and reporting / Intra E-UTRAN measurements / Periodic reporting (intra-frequency and inter-band measurements)

8.3.1.13.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state and measurement configured for periodic reporting of intra-frequency cells and inter-band cells }

ensure that {

when { The UE receives reference signal power for cells on the serving frequency and cells on the frequency where measurements are configured }

then { UE sends MeasurementReport message at regular intervals for these cells }

}

(2)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state and a MeasurementReport message for a configured periodic measurement reporting of intra-frequency and inter-band cells was sent }

ensure that {

when { A previously reported cell become unavailable or the UE receives reference signal power on a reported frequency for a cell which was previously not reported }

then { UE sends MeasurementReport message at regular intervals for the available intra-frequency and inter-band cells }

}

(3)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state and periodic measurement reporting ongoing}

ensure that {

when { The UE receives a RRCConnectionReconfiguration message removing measIds for periodic reporting }

then { UE stops sending MeasurementReport messages for these measIds }

}

8.3.1.13.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clauses 5.3.5.3, 5.5.2.2, 5.5.4.1 and 5.5.5.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.3]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message does not include the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the measConfig:

2> perform the Measurement configuration procedure as specified in 5.5.2;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.2.2]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId value included in the received measIdToRemoveList that is part of the current UE configuration in varMeasConfig:

2> remove the entry with the matching measId from the measIdList within the VarMeasConfig;

2> remove the measurement reporting entry for this measId from the VarMeasReportList, if included;

2> stop the periodical reporting timer or timer T321, whichever one is running, and reset the associated information (e.g. timeToTrigger) for this measId;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.1]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> else:

3> if the corresponding measObject concerns E-UTRA:

4> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is not included in the blackCellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’ and if a (first) measurement result is available for one or more applicable cells:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 1: If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’, the UE initiates a first measurement report immediately after the quantity to be reported becomes available for at least either serving cell or one of the applicable cells. If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’, the UE initiates a first measurement report when it has determined the strongest cells on the associated frequency.

2> upon expiry of the periodical reporting timer for this measId:

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 2: The UE does not stop the periodical reporting with triggerType set to ‘event’ or to ‘periodical’ while the corresponding measurement is not performed due to the serving cell RSRP being equal to or better than s-Measure or due to the measurement gap not being setup.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.5]

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measuredResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

2> set the measResultsNeighCells to include the best neighbouring cells up to maxReportCells in accordance with the following:

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’:

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> else:

4> include the applicable cells for which the new measurement results became available since the last periodical reporting or since the measurement was initiated or reset;

NOTE 3: The reliability of the report (i.e. the certainty it contains the strongest cells on the concerned frequency) depends on the measurement configuration i.e. the reportInterval. The related performance requirements are specified in TS 36.133 [16].

3> for each cell that is included in the measResultsNeighCells, include the physCellId;

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’; or the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’:

4> for each included cell, include the layer 3 filtered measured results in accordance with the reportConfig for this measId, ordered as follows:

5> if the measObject associated with this measId concerns E-UTRA:

6> set the measResult to include the quantity(ies) indicated in the reportQuantity within the concerned reportConfig in order of decreasing triggerQuantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> if the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is less than to reportAmount as defined corresponding reportConfig for this measId:

2> start the periodical reporting timer with the value of reportInterval as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId;

1> submit the MEASUREMENT REPORT message to lower layers for transmission, upon which the procedure ends.

8.3.1.13a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clauses 5.3.5.3, 5.5.2.2, 5.5.4.1 and 5.5.5.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.3]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message does not include the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the measConfig:

2> perform the Measurement configuration procedure as specified in 5.5.2;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.2.2]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId value included in the received measIdToRemoveList that is part of the current UE configuration in varMeasConfig:

2> remove the entry with the matching measId from the measIdList within the VarMeasConfig;

2> remove the measurement reporting entry for this measId from the VarMeasReportList, if included;

2> stop the periodical reporting timer or timer T321, whichever one is running, and reset the associated information (e.g. timeToTrigger) for this measId;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.1]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> else:

3> if the corresponding measObject concerns E-UTRA:

4> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is not included in the blackCellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’ and if a (first) measurement result is available for one or more applicable cells:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 1: If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’, the UE initiates a first measurement report immediately after the quantity to be reported becomes available for at least either serving cell or one of the applicable cells. If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’, the UE initiates a first measurement report when it has determined the strongest cells on the associated frequency.

2> upon expiry of the periodical reporting timer for this measId:

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 2: The UE does not stop the periodical reporting with triggerType set to ‘event’ or to ‘periodical’ while the corresponding measurement is not performed due to the serving cell RSRP being equal to or better than s-Measure or due to the measurement gap not being setup.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.5]

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measuredResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

2> set the measResultsNeighCells to include the best neighbouring cells up to maxReportCells in accordance with the following:

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’:

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> else:

4> include the applicable cells for which the new measurement results became available since the last periodical reporting or since the measurement was initiated or reset;

NOTE 3: The reliability of the report (i.e. the certainty it contains the strongest cells on the concerned frequency) depends on the measurement configuration i.e. the reportInterval. The related performance requirements are specified in TS 36.133 [16].

3> for each cell that is included in the measResultsNeighCells, include the physCellId;

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event’; or the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells’ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON’:

4> for each included cell, include the layer 3 filtered measured results in accordance with the reportConfig for this measId, ordered as follows:

5> if the measObject associated with this measId concerns E-UTRA:

6> set the measResult to include the quantity(ies) indicated in the reportQuantity within the concerned reportConfig in order of decreasing triggerQuantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> if the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is less than to reportAmount as defined corresponding reportConfig for this measId:

2> start the periodical reporting timer with the value of reportInterval as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId;

1> submit the MEASUREMENT REPORT message to lower layers for transmission, upon which the procedure ends.

ensure that {

when { Serving becomes worse than threshold }

then { UE sends MeasurementReport for event A2 }

}

(2)

with { UE in E-UTRA RRC_CONNECTED state and measurements configured for event A2 and event A3 }

ensure that {

when { Neighbour becomes offset better than serving }

then { UE sends MeasurementReport for event A3 }

}

8.3.1.14.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clauses 5.3.5.3, 5.5.4.1, 5.5.4.3, 5.5.4.4 and 5.5.5.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.3]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message does not include the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the measConfig:

2> perform the measurement configuration procedure as specified in 5.5.2;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.1]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> else:

3> if the corresponding measObject concerns E-UTRA:

4> if the ue-RxTxTimeDiffPeriodical, eventA1 or eventA2 is configured in the corresponding reportConfig:

5> consider only the serving cell to be applicable;

4> else:

5> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is not included in the blackCellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig, while the VarMeasReportList does not include an measurement reporting entry for this measId (a first cell triggers the event):

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells not included in the cellsTriggeredList for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig (a subsequent cell triggers the event):

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘ and if the leaving condition applicable for this event is fulfilled for one or more of the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined within the VarMeasConfig for this event:

3> remove the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> if reportOnLeave is set to TRUE for the corresponding reporting configuration:

4> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

3> if the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is empty:

4> remove the measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

4> stop the periodical reporting timer for this measId, if running;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportStrongestCells‘ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON‘ and if a (first) measurement result is available for one or more applicable cells:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 1: If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells‘, the UE initiates a first measurement report immediately after the quantity to be reported becomes available for at least either serving cell or one of the applicable cells. If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON‘, the UE initiates a first measurement report when it has determined the strongest cells on the associated frequency.

2> upon expiry of the periodical reporting timer for this measId:

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportCGI‘ and if the UE acquired the information needed to set all fields of cgi-Info for the requested cell:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> stop timer T321;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> upon expiry of the T321 for this measId:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 2: The UE does not stop the periodical reporting with triggerType set to ‘event‘ or to ‘periodical‘ while the corresponding measurement is not performed due to the serving cell RSRP being equal to or better than s-Measure or due to the measurement gap not being setup.

NOTE 3: If the UE is configured with DRX, the UE may delay the measurement reporting for event triggered and periodical triggered measurements until the Active Time, which is defined in TS 36.321 [6].

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.3]

The UE shall:

1> consider the entering condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A2-1, as specified below, is fulfilled;

1> consider the leaving condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A2-2, as specified below, is fulfilled;

Inequality A2-1 (Entering condition)

Inequality A2-2 (Leaving condition)

The variables in the formula are defined as follows:

Ms is the measurement result of the serving cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Hys is the hysteresis parameter for this event (i.e. hysteresis as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Thresh is the threshold parameter for this event (i.e. a2-Threshold as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Ms is expressed in dBm in case of RSRP, or in dB in case of RSRQ.

Hys is expressed in dB.

Thresh is expressed in the same unit as Ms.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.4]

The UE shall:

1> consider the entering condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-1, as specified below, is fulfilled;

1> consider the leaving condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-2, as specified below, is fulfilled;

Inequality A3-1 (Entering condition)

Inequality A3-2 (Leaving condition)

The variables in the formula are defined as follows:

Mn is the measurement result of the neighbouring cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofn is the frequency specific offset of the frequency of the neighbour cell (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell).

Ocn is the cell specific offset of the neighbour cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell), and set to zero if not configured for the neighbour cell.

Ms is the measurement result of the serving cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofs is the frequency specific offset of the serving frequency (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency).

Ocs is the cell specific offset of the serving cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency), and is set to zero if not configured for the serving cell.

Hys is the hysteresis parameter for this event (i.e. hysteresis as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Off is the offset parameter for this event (i.e. a3-Offset as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Mn, Ms are expressed in dBm in case of RSRP, or in dB in case of RSRQ.

Ofn, Ocn, Ofs, Ocs, Hys, Off are expressed in dB.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.5]

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

2> set the measResultNeighCells to include the best neighbouring cells up to maxReportCells in accordance with the following:

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘:

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> else:

4> include the applicable cells for which the new measurement results became available since the last periodical reporting or since the measurement was initiated or reset;

NOTE 4: The reliability of the report (i.e. the certainty it contains the strongest cells on the concerned frequency) depends on the measurement configuration i.e. the reportInterval. The related performance requirements are specified in TS 36.133 [16].

3> for each cell that is included in the measResultNeighCells, include the physCellId;

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘; or the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells‘ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON‘:

4> for each included cell, include the layer 3 filtered measured results in accordance with the reportConfig for this measId, ordered as follows:

5> if the measObject associated with this measId concerns E-UTRA:

6> set the measResult to include the quantity(ies) indicated in the reportQuantity within the concerned reportConfig in order of decreasing triggerQuantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

5> else:

6> set the measResult to the quantity as configured for the concerned RAT within the quantityConfig in order of either decreasing quantity for UTRA and GERAN or increasing quantity for CDMA2000 pilotStrength, i.e. the best cell is included first;

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> if the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is less than the reportAmount as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId:

2> start the periodical reporting timer with the value of reportInterval as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId;

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

8.3.1.14a.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the current TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clauses 5.3.5.3, 5.5.4.1, 5.5.4.3, 5.5.4.4 and 5.5.5.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.3]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message does not include the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the measConfig:

2> perform the measurement configuration procedure as specified in 5.5.2;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.1]

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> else:

3> if the corresponding measObject concerns E-UTRA:

4> if the ue-RxTxTimeDiffPeriodical, eventA1 or eventA2 is configured in the corresponding reportConfig:

5> consider only the serving cell to be applicable;

4> else:

5> consider any neighbouring cell detected on the associated frequency to be applicable when the concerned cell is not included in the blackCellsToAddModList defined within the VarMeasConfig for this measId;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig, while the VarMeasReportList does not include an measurement reporting entry for this measId (a first cell triggers the event):

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘ and if the entry condition applicable for this event, i.e. the event corresponding with the eventId of the corresponding reportConfig within VarMeasConfig, is fulfilled for one or more applicable cells not included in the cellsTriggeredList for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined for this event within the VarMeasConfig (a subsequent cell triggers the event):

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> include the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘ and if the leaving condition applicable for this event is fulfilled for one or more of the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId for all measurements after layer 3 filtering taken during timeToTrigger defined within the VarMeasConfig for this event:

3> remove the concerned cell(s) in the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> if reportOnLeave is set to TRUE for the corresponding reporting configuration:

4> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

3> if the cellsTriggeredList defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is empty:

4> remove the measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

4> stop the periodical reporting timer for this measId, if running;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportStrongestCells‘ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON‘ and if a (first) measurement result is available for one or more applicable cells:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 1: If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells‘, the UE initiates a first measurement report immediately after the quantity to be reported becomes available for at least either serving cell or one of the applicable cells. If the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON‘, the UE initiates a first measurement report when it has determined the strongest cells on the associated frequency.

2> upon expiry of the periodical reporting timer for this measId:

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> if the purpose is included and set to ‘reportCGI‘ and if the UE acquired the information needed to set all fields of cgi-Info for the requested cell:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> stop timer T321;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

2> upon expiry of the T321 for this measId:

3> include a measurement reporting entry within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> set the numberOfReportsSent defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId to 0;

3> initiate the measurement reporting procedure, as specified in 5.5.5;

NOTE 2: The UE does not stop the periodical reporting with triggerType set to ‘event‘ or to ‘periodical‘ while the corresponding measurement is not performed due to the serving cell RSRP being equal to or better than s-Measure or due to the measurement gap not being setup.

NOTE 3: If the UE is configured with DRX, the UE may delay the measurement reporting for event triggered and periodical triggered measurements until the Active Time, which is defined in TS 36.321 [6].

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.3]

The UE shall:

1> consider the entering condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A2-1, as specified below, is fulfilled;

1> consider the leaving condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A2-2, as specified below, is fulfilled;

Inequality A2-1 (Entering condition):

Inequality A2-2 (Leaving condition):

The variables in the formula are defined as follows:

Ms is the measurement result of the serving cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Hys is the hysteresis parameter for this event (i.e. hysteresis as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Thresh is the threshold parameter for this event (i.e. a2-Threshold as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Ms is expressed in dBm in case of RSRP, or in dB in case of RSRQ.

Hys is expressed in dB.

Thresh is expressed in the same unit as Ms.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.4.4]

The UE shall:

1> consider the entering condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-1, as specified below, is fulfilled;

1> consider the leaving condition for this event to be satisfied when condition A3-2, as specified below, is fulfilled;

Inequality A3-1 (Entering condition):

Inequality A3-2 (Leaving condition):

The variables in the formula are defined as follows:

Mn is the measurement result of the neighbouring cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofn is the frequency specific offset of the frequency of the neighbour cell (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell).

Ocn is the cell specific offset of the neighbour cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the frequency of the neighbour cell), and set to zero if not configured for the neighbour cell.

Ms is the measurement result of the serving cell, not taking into account any offsets.

Ofs is the frequency specific offset of the serving frequency (i.e. offsetFreq as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency).

Ocs is the cell specific offset of the serving cell (i.e. cellIndividualOffset as defined within measObjectEUTRA corresponding to the serving frequency), and is set to zero if not configured for the serving cell.

Hys is the hysteresis parameter for this event (i.e. hysteresis as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Off is the offset parameter for this event (i.e. a3-Offset as defined within reportConfigEUTRA for this event).

Mn, Ms are expressed in dBm in case of RSRP, or in dB in case of RSRQ.

Ofn, Ocn, Ofs, Ocs, Hys, Off are expressed in dB.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.5]

For the measId for which the measurement reporting procedure was triggered, the UE shall set the measResults within the MeasurementReport message as follows:

1> set the measId to the measurement identity that triggered the measurement reporting;

1> set the measResultServCell to include the quantities of serving cell;

1> if there is at least one applicable neighbouring cell to report:

2> set the measResultNeighCells to include the best neighbouring cells up to maxReportCells in accordance with the following:

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘:

4> include the cells included in the cellsTriggeredList as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId;

3> else:

4> include the applicable cells for which the new measurement results became available since the last periodical reporting or since the measurement was initiated or reset;

NOTE: The reliability of the report (i.e. the certainty it contains the strongest cells on the concerned frequency) depends on the measurement configuration i.e. the reportInterval. The related performance requirements are specified in TS 36.133 [16].

3> for each cell that is included in the measResultNeighCells, include the physCellId;

3> if the triggerType is set to ‘event‘; or the purpose is set to ‘reportStrongestCells‘ or to ‘reportStrongestCellsForSON‘:

4> for each included cell, include the layer 3 filtered measured results in accordance with the reportConfig for this measId, ordered as follows:

5> if the measObject associated with this measId concerns E-UTRA:

6> set the measResult to include the quantity(ies) indicated in the reportQuantity within the concerned reportConfig in order of decreasing triggerQuantity, i.e. the best cell is included first;

5> else:

6> set the measResult to the quantity as configured for the concerned RAT within the quantityConfig in order of either decreasing quantity for UTRA and GERAN or increasing quantity for CDMA2000 pilotStrength, i.e. the best cell is included first;

1> increment the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId by 1;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer, if running;

1> if the numberOfReportsSent as defined within the VarMeasReportList for this measId is less than the reportAmount as defined within the corresponding reportConfig for this measId:

8.3.1.15 Measurement configuration control and reporting / Intra E-UTRAN measurements / Inter-band handover / IE measurement configuration not present

8.3.1.15.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE having completed the radio bearer establishment, initial security activation procedure and performed the intra-frequency and inter-band measurements }

ensure that {
when { UE receives an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message including a mobilityControlInfo indicating a different E-UTRA frequency band and not including a measConfig }

then { UE performs inter-band handover, continues the intra-frequency measurement and continues inter-band measurement after the activation of the measurement gaps }

}

8.3.1.15.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clause 5.5.6.1.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.6.1]

E-UTRAN applies the handover procedure as follows:

– when performing the handover procedure, as specified in 5.3.5.4, ensure that a measObjectId corresponding to the handover target carrier frequency is configured as a result of the procedures described in this sub-clause and in 5.3.5.4;

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘periodical‘:

3> remove this measId from the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

1> if the procedure was triggered due to inter-frequency handover or successful re-establishment to an inter-frequency cell, update the measId values in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig as follows:

2> if a measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency exists in the measObjectList within VarMeasConfig:

3> for each measId value in the measIdList:

4> if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency;

4> else if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

2> else:

3> remove all measId values that are linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

1> remove all measurement reporting entries within VarMeasReportList;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer or timer T321, whichever one is running, as well as associated information (e.g. timeToTrigger) for all measId;

1> release the measurement gaps, if activated;

NOTE: If the UE requires measurement gaps to perform inter-frequency or inter-RAT measurements, the UE resumes the inter-frequency and inter-RAT measurements after the E-UTRAN has setup the measurement gaps.

– when performing the handover procedure, as specified in 5.3.5.4, ensure that a measObjectId corresponding to the handover target carrier frequency is configured as a result of the procedures described in this subclause and in 5.3.5.4;

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘periodical‘:

3> remove this measId from the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

1> if the procedure was triggered due to inter-frequency handover or successful re-establishment to an inter-frequency cell, update the measId values in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig as follows:

2> if a measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency exists in the measObjectList within VarMeasConfig

3> for each measId value in the measIdList:

4> if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency;

4> else if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

2> else:

3> remove all measId values that are linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

1> remove all measurement reporting entries within VarMeasReportList;

1> reset the periodical reporting timer or timer T321, whichever one is running, as well as associated information (e.g. timeToTrigger) for all measId;

1> release the measurement gaps, if activated;

NOTE: If the UE requires measurement gaps to perform inter-frequency or inter-RAT measurements, the UE resumes the inter-frequency and inter-RAT measurements after the E-UTRAN has setup the measurement gaps.

8.3.1.16 Measurement configuration control and reporting / Intra E-UTRAN measurements / Continuation of the measurements after RRC connection re-establishment / Inter-band

8.3.1.16.1 Test Purpose (TP)

(1)

with { UE having completed the radio bearer establishment, initial security activation procedure and performed the inter-band measurement and after receiving an RRCConnectionReconfiguration message including a mobilityControlInfo indicating a different E-UTRA cell having attempted intra-frequency handover }

ensure that {
when { UE detects handover failure and the intra-frequency cell is selectable }

then { UE performs RRC Connection Re-establishment and continues the inter-band measurement after the activation of the measurement gaps }

}

8.3.1.16.2 Conformance requirements

References: The conformance requirements covered in the present TC are specified in: TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.4, 5.3.5.6, 5.3.7.2 and 5.5.6.1.

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.4]

If the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the mobilityControlInfo and the UE is able to comply with the configuration included in this message, the UE shall:

1> stop timer T310, if running;

1> start timer T304 with the timer value set to t304, as included in the mobilityControlInfo;

1> if the carrierFreq is included:

2> consider the target cell to be one on the frequency indicated by the carrierFreq with a physical cell identity indicated by the targetPhysCellId;

1> else:

2> consider the target cell to be one on the current frequency with a physical cell identity indicated by the targetPhysCellId;

1> start synchronising to the DL of the target cell;

NOTE 1: The UE should perform the handover as soon as possible following the reception of the RRC message triggering the handover, which could be before confirming successful reception (HARQ and ARQ) of this message.

1> reset MAC;

1> re-establish PDCP for all RBs that are established;

NOTE 2: The handling of the radio bearers after the successful completion of the PDCP re-establishment, e.g. the re-transmission of unacknowledged PDCP SDUs (as well as the associated status reporting), the handling of the SN and the HFN, is specified in TS 36.323 [8].

1> re-establish RLC for all RBs that are established;

1> apply the value of the newUE-Identity as the C-RNTI;

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the fullConfig:

2> perform the radio configuration procedure as specified in section 5.3.5.8;

1> configure lower layers in accordance with the received radioResourceConfigCommon;

1> configure lower layers in accordance with any additional fields, not covered in the previous, if included in the received mobilityControlInfo;

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the radioResourceConfigDedicated:

2> perform the radio resource configuration procedure as specified in 5.3.10;

1> perform the measurement related actions as specified in 5.5.6.1;

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the measConfig:

2> perform the measurement configuration procedure as specified in 5.5.2;

1> release reportProximityConfig and clear any associated proximity status reporting timer;

1> if the RRCConnectionReconfiguration message includes the reportProximityConfig:

2> perform the proximity indication in accordance with the received reportProximityConfig;

1> submit the RRCConnectionReconfigurationComplete message to lower layers for transmission;

1> if MAC successfully completes the random access procedure:

2> stop timer T304;

2> apply the parts of the CQI reporting configuration, the scheduling request configuration and the sounding RS configuration that do not require the UE to know the SFN of the target cell, if any;

2> apply the parts of the measurement and the radio resource configuration that require the UE to know the SFN of the target cell (e.g. measurement gaps, periodic CQI reporting, scheduling request configuration, sounding RS configuration), if any, upon acquiring the SFN of the target cell;

NOTE 3: Whenever the UE shall setup or reconfigure a configuration in accordance with a field that is received it applies the new configuration, except for the cases addressed by the above statements.

2> the procedure ends;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.5.6]

The UE shall:

1> if T304 expires (handover failure):

NOTE: Following T304 expiry any dedicated preamble, if provided within the rach-ConfigDedicated, is not available for use by the UE anymore.

2> revert back to the configuration used in the source cell, excluding the configuration configured by the physicalConfigDedicated, the mac-MainConfig and the sps-Config;

2> initiate the connection re-establishment procedure as specified in 5.3.7, upon which the RRC connection reconfiguration procedure ends;

[TS 36.331, clause 5.3.7.2]

The UE shall only initiate the procedure when AS security has been activated. The UE initiates the procedure when one of the following conditions is met:

1> upon detecting radio link failure, in accordance with 5.3.11; or

1> upon handover failure, in accordance with 5.3.5.6; or

1> upon mobility from E-UTRA failure, in accordance with 5.4.3.5; or

1> upon integrity check failure indication from lower layers; or

1> upon an RRC connection reconfiguration failure, in accordance with 5.3.5.5;

Upon initiation of the procedure, the UE shall:

1> stop timer T310, if running;

1> start timer T311;

1> suspend all RBs except SRB0;

1> reset MAC;

1> apply the default physical channel configuration as specified in 9.2.4;

1> apply the default semi-persistent scheduling configuration as specified in 9.2.3;

1> apply the default MAC main configuration as specified in 9.2.2;

1> release reportProximityConfig and clear any associated proximity status reporting timer;

1> perform cell selection in accordance with the cell selection process as specified in TS 36.304 [4];

[TS 36.331, clause 5.5.6.1]

E-UTRAN applies the re-establishment procedure as follows:

– when performing the connection re-establishment procedure, as specified in 5.3.7, ensure that a measObjectId corresponding to the target carrier frequency is configured as a result of the procedure described in this sub-clause and the subsequent connection reconfiguration procedure immediately following the re-establishment procedure;

The UE shall:

1> for each measId included in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

2> if the triggerType is set to ‘periodical‘:

3> remove this measId from the measIdList within VarMeasConfig:

1> if the procedure was triggered due to inter-frequency handover or successful re-establishment to an inter-frequency cell, update the measId values in the measIdList within VarMeasConfig as follows:

2> if a measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency exists in the measObjectList within VarMeasConfig:

3> for each measId value in the measIdList:

4> if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency;

4> else if the measId value is linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the target carrier frequency:

5> link this measId value to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

2> else:

3> remove all measId values that are linked to the measObjectId value corresponding to the source carrier frequency;

1> remove all measurement reporting entries within VarMeasReportList;

1> stop the periodical reporting timer or timer T321, whichever one is running, as well as associated information (e.g. timeToTrigger) for all measId;

1> release the measurement gaps, if activated;

NOTE: If the UE requires measurement gaps to perform inter-frequency or inter-RAT measurements, the UE resumes the inter-frequency and inter-RAT measurements after the E-UTRAN has setup the measurement gaps.
