1 Scope

The present document specifies the Access Stratum (AS) part of the Idle Mode procedures applicable to a UE. The non-

access stratum (NAS) part of Idle mode procedures and processes is specified in TS 23.122 [5].

The present document specifies the model for the functional division between the NAS and AS in a UE.

The present document applies to all UEs that support at least E-UTRA, including multi-RAT UEs as described in 3GPP

specifications, in the following cases:
- When the UE is camped on an E-UTRA cell;
- When the UE is searching for a cell to camp on;

NOTE: When the UE is camped on or searching for a cell to camp on belonging to other RATs, the UE behaviour

is described in the specifications of the other RAT.

The Idle Mode procedures defined in this specification are also applicable for a UE in RRC_INACTIVE state unless

specified otherwise.

3 Definitions and abbreviations
3.1 Definitions

For the purposes of the present document, the following terms and definitions apply:

Acceptable Cell: A cell that satisfies certain conditions as specified in 4.3. A UE can always attempt emergency calls

on an acceptable cell, but restriction as in 5.3.3 apply.

CSG Whitelist: A list provided by NAS containing all the CSG identities and their associated PLMN IDs of the CSGs

to which the subscriber belongs.

NOTE: This list is known as Allowed CSG List in Rel-8 Access Stratum specifications.

Available PLMN(s): One or more PLMN(s) for which the UE has found at least one cell and read its PLMN

identity(ies).
Barred Cell: A cell a UE is not allowed to camp on.

Camped on a cell: UE has completed the cell selection/reselection process and has chosen a cell. The UE monitors

system information and (in most cases) paging information.

Camped on any cell: UE is in idle mode and has completed the cell selection/reselection process and has chosen a cell

irrespective of PLMN identity.

Closed Subscriber Group (CSG): A Closed Subscriber Group identifies subscribers of an operator who are permitted

to access one or more cells of the PLMN but which have restricted access (CSG cells).

CN type: The type of core network connectivity supported by an E-UTRA cell, either EPC or 5GC.

Commercial Mobile Alert System: Public Warning System that delivers Warning Notifications provided by Warning

Notification Providers to CMAS capable UEs.

CSG cell: A cell broadcasting a CSG indication that is set to TRUE and a specific CSG identity.

CSG identity: An identifier broadcast by a CSG or hybrid cell/cells and used by the UE to facilitate access for

authorised members of the associated Closed Subscriber Group.

CSG member cell: a cell broadcasting the identity of the selected PLMN, registered PLMN or equivalent PLMN and

for which the CSG whitelist of the UE includes an entry comprising cell's CSG ID and the respective PLMN identity.

DRX cycle: Individual time interval between monitoring Paging Occasion for a specific UE.

eDRX cycle: Time interval between the first Paging Occasions occurring after successive extended DRX periods.

eCall Only Mode: A UE configuration option that allows the UE to attach at EPS and register in IMS to perform only

eCall Over IMS, and a non-emergency IMS call for test and/or terminal reconfiguration services.

EHPLMN: Any of the PLMN entries contained in the Equivalent HPLMN list TS 23.122 [5].

Equivalent PLMN list: List of PLMNs considered as equivalent by the UE for cell selection, cell reselection, and

handover according to the information provided by the NAS.

EU-Alert: Public Warning System that delivers Warning Notifications provided by Warning Notification Providers

using the same AS mechanisms as defined for CMAS.

Home PLMN: A PLMN where the Mobile Country Code (MCC) and Mobile Network Code (MNC) of the PLMN

identity are the same as the MCC and MNC of the IMSI.

HNB Name: The Home eNodeB Name is a broadcast string in free text format that provides a human readable name for

the Home eNodeB CSG identity and any broadcasted PLMN identity.

HSDN cell: A cell that has higher priority than other cells for cell reselection for HSDN capable UE in a High-mobility

state.
