The present document provides an overview and overall description of the minimization of drive tests functionality.

The document describes functions and procedures to support collection of UE-specific measurements for MDT using Control Plane architecture, for UTRAN, E-UTRAN and NR.

Details of the signalling procedures for single-RAT operation are specified in the appropriate radio interface protocol specification. Network operation and overall control of MDT is described in OAM specifications.
