Extended Service Request procedure

The Extended Service Request and Service Request are same procedure just used for different purposes.
To make it simple, the below are color-coded. The cases when the Extended Service Request are triggered are marked light blue, the cases in black trigger Service Request procedure.

 Service Request triggers

a)    the UE in EMM-IDLE mode receives a paging request with CN domain indicator set to "PS" from the network;
b)    the UE, in EMM-IDLE mode, has pending user data to be sent;
c)    the UE, in EMM-IDLE mode, has uplink signalling pending;
d)    the UE in EMM-IDLE or EMM-CONNECTED mode is configured to use CS fallback and has a mobile originating CS fallback request from the upper layer;
e)    the UE in EMM-IDLE mode is configured to use CS fallback and receives a paging request with CN domain indicator set to "CS", or the UE in EMM-CONNECTED mode is configured to use CS fallback and receives a CS SERVICE NOTIFICATION message;
f)    the UE in EMM-IDLE or EMM-CONNECTED mode is configured to use 1xCS fallback and has a mobile originating 1xCS fallback request from the upper layer;
g)    the UE in EMM-CONNECTED mode is configured to use 1xCS fallback and accepts cdma2000® signalling messages containing a 1xCS paging request received over E-UTRAN;
h)    the UE, in EMM-IDLE mode, has uplink cdma2000® signalling pending to be transmitted over E-UTRAN;
i)    the UE, in EMM-IDLE or EMM-CONNECTED mode, is configured to use 1xCS fallback, accepts cdma2000® signalling messages containing a 1xCS paging request received over cdma2000®  1xRTT, and the network supports dual Rx CSFB or provide CS fallback registration parameters; or
j)    the UE, in EMM-IDLE or EMM-CONNECTED mode, has uplink cdma2000® signalling pending to be transmitted over cdma2000® 1xRTT, and the network supports dual Rx CSFB or provide CS fallback registration parameters.




Subscenarios

For case d in above, the UE shall send an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message, start T3417ext and enter the state EMM-SERVICE-REQUEST-INITIATED.

For case e:
  • if the UE is in EMM-IDLE mode, the UE shall send an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message, start T3417ext and enter the state EMM-SERVICE-REQUEST-INITIATED;
  • if the UE is in EMM-CONNECTED mode and if the UE accepts the paging, the UE shall send an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message with the CSFB response IE indicating "CS fallback accepted by the UE", start T3417ext and enter the state EMM-SERVICE-REQUEST-INITIATED; or
  • if the UE is in EMM-CONNECTED mode and if the UE rejects the paging, the UE shall send an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message with the CSFB response IE indicating "CS fallback rejected by the UE" and enter the state EMM-REGISTERED.NORMAL-SERVICE. The network, obviously, shall not initiate CS fallback procedures.
For cases f, g, i and j, the UE shall send an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message, start T3417 and enter the state EMM-SERVICE-REQUEST-INITIATED.

Service Request reception

Upon receipt of the SERVICE REQUEST or EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message, the MME may initiate the EMM common procedures e.g. the authentication procedure and security mode control procedure.

Service Request procedure accepted by the network

On receiving the Service Request for cases a, b, c and h in list above, the UE shall treat the indication from the lower layers that the user plane radio bearer is set up as successful completion of the procedure. The UE shall stop the timer T3417 and enter the state EMM-REGISTERED.

If the service type information element in the EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message indicates "mobile terminating CS fallback or 1xCS fallback" and the CSFB response IE indicates "CS fallback accepted by the UE", or if the service type information element in the EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message indicates "mobile originating CS fallback or 1xCS fallback" or "mobile originating CS fallback emergency call or 1xCS fallback emergency call", the network initiates CS fallback procedures. If the EPS bearer context status IE is included in the EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message, the network shall deactivate all those EPS bearer contexts locally (without peer-to-peer signalling between the network and the UE) which are active on the network side but are indicated by the UE as being inactive.

If the SERVICE REQUEST message was sent in a CSG cell (Closed Subscriber Group cell) and the CSG subscription has expired or was removed for a UE, but the UE has a PDN connection for emergency bearer services established, the network shall accept the SERVICE REQUEST message and deactivate all non-emergency EPS bearers locally. The emergency EPS bearers shall not be deactivated.

For cases d, and for case e when the CSFB response was set to "CS fallback accepted by the UE", the UE shall treat the indication from the lower layers that the inter-system change from S1 mode to A/Gb or Iu mode is completed as successful completion of the procedure.The EMM sublayer in the UE shall indicate to the MM sublayer that the CS fallback procedure has succeeded. The UE shall stop the timer T3417ext and enter the state EMM-REGISTERED.NO-CELL-AVAILABLE.

If the service request procedure was initiated in EMM-IDLE mode and an EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message was sent in a CSG cell and the CSG subscription has expired or was removed for the UE, the network need not perform CSG access control if the service type information element indicates "mobile originating CS fallback emergency call or 1xCS fallback emergency call".

For cases f, and g, the UE shall treat the indication from the lower layers that the signalling connection is released with the redirection indication to cdma2000® 1x access network or the indication from the lower layers that a change to cdma2000® 1x access network for 1xCS fallback has started as successful completion of the procedure. The UE shall stop the timer T3417 and enter the state EMM-REGISTERED.NO-CELL-AVAILABLE. If the UE receives a cdma2000® signalling message indicating 1xCS fallback rejection by cdma2000® 1x access network, the UE shall abort the service request procedure, stop timer T3417 and enter the state EMM-REGISTERED.NORMAL-SERVICE.

For cases i and j, if the UE receives the indication from the lower layers that the signalling connection is 
released, the UE shall consider the service request procedure successfully completed, stop timer T3417 and enter the state EMM-REGISTERED.NO-CELL-AVAILABLE.

If the SERVICE REQUEST message was used, the UE shall locally deactivate the EPS bearer contexts that do not have a user plane radio bearer established upon successful completion of the service request procedure.

If the EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message was used and radio bearer establishment takes place during the procedure, the UE shall locally deactivate the EPS bearer contexts that do not have a user plane radio bearer established upon receiving a lower layer indication of radio bearer establishment. The UE does not perform local deactivation of EPS bearer contexts upon receiving an indication of inter-system change from lower layers.

If the EXTENDED SERVICE REQUEST message was used and radio bearer establishment does not take place during the procedure, the UE does not perform local deactivation of the EPS bearer context. The UE does not perform local deactivation of EPS bearer contexts upon receiving an indication of inter-system change from lower layers.

When the E-UTRAN fails to establish radio bearers for one or more EPS bearer contexts, then the MME shall locally deactivate the EPS bearer contexts corresponding to the failed radio bearers based on the lower layer indication from the E UTRAN, without notifying the UE.
