Iu Flex Feature Parameter Description

2 Overview

Overview

Iu Flex is an extended function of RAN. The 3GPP TS 23.236 defines Iu Flex as follows: "Intradomain Connection of Radio Access Network (RAN) Nodes to Multiple Core Network Nodes."
The Iu Flex (WRFD-021302 Iu Flex) brings in the concept of "pool area". A pool area contains
one or more MSC/SGSN service areas. In a pool area, the UE roams freely without changing
the serving CN node. The Iu Flex enables a RAN node to route information to different CN
nodes, implementing the load balance among MSCs or SGSNs.

WCDMA RAN
Iu Flex Feature Parameter Description

2 Overview

2.1 Background
In the versions earlier than 3GPP R5, one RAN node is controlled by only one CN node. Such
a network structure, however, has some limitations. From the perspective of 3G traffic
distribution, the traffic volume of urban areas in the daytime constitutes a major proportion of
the total, but the traffic volume of urban areas at night decreases to a low level. The situation
may be reverse in the suburban area. Therefore, the load of CN nodes for urban and suburban
area is imbalanced.
Therefore, Iu Flex is introduced in 3GPP R5. With Iu Flex, one RAN node can be connected to
several CN nodes and these CN nodes can form a pool area. The UEs in the same pool area do
not need to change the serving CN node.
The introduction of Iu Flex avoids the imbalance of resource usage among different CN nodes
in different traffic peak hours and achieves the load balancing among several CN nodes in the
WCDMA network.
In a traditional network structure, a RAN node only needs to know whether the destination is
the CS domain or the PS domain before sending information. It does not need to discriminate
specific CN nodes because a RAN node is connected to only one CN node.
With Iu Flex, however, one RNC can connect to several MSCs/SGSNs physically, where CS
nodes and PS nodes form different pool areas. Therefore, a RAN node can send information to
different CN nodes in the CS or PS domain and achieve load balancing among several CN nodes
in the pool area.
The pool area is described as follows:
l

A pool area is a collection of one or more MSC or SGSN serving areas. One or more CN
nodes can provide services in parallel and these CN nodes share the traffic in the pool area.

Pool areas may overlap. RAN nodes belong to all the overlapping pool areas.

The CS pool area is independent of the PS pool area.

If a UE roams in a certain pool area, it does not need to change the serving CN node.

The Iu Flex feature enhances network reliability, achieves load balancing, and reduces UE
roaming signaling.

2.2 Pool Area


This section describes the pool area, in terms of what it is, and how it is served and configured.
A RAN node service area contains all the cells controlled by the RAN node. A pool area is a
collection of one or more RAN node service areas. It is served, in parallel, by one or more CN
nodes that share the traffic of this area.
A UE is served by one dedicated CN node in a pool area as long as the UE is under the radio
coverage of the pool area. Pool areas can overlap each other. If several overlapping pool areas
cover a same RAN node service area, the RAN node service area belongs to these pool areas.
The pool areas of the CS domain and those of the PS domain are configured independently with
the granularity of RAN node service areas.

Iu Flex Feature Parameter Description

2 Overview

In a pool area, the UE roams freely without changing the serving CN node. The RAN node
service area can belong to the same pool area or several pool areas.
Figure 2-1 shows an example of the pool area configurations.
Figure 2-1 Pool area configuration example

Figure 2-1 shows the following four pool areas:


l

CS pool area 1: includes RAN node areas 1, 2, 5, 6, and MSC servers 1, 2, and 3, which
provide service for the RAN node areas.

CS pool area 2: includes RAN node areas 2, 3, 6, 7, and MSC servers 4, 5, and 6, which
provide service for the RAN node areas.

PS pool area 1: includes RAN node areas 1 and 5, and SGSNs 1 and 2, which provide
service for the RAN node areas.

PS pool area 2: includes RAN node areas 2, 3, 6, 7, and SGSN 3, 4, and 5, which provide
service for the RAN node areas.
NOTE

As shown in Figure 2-1, the pool areas without the Iu Flex, such as RAN node areas 4 and 8, may coexist
with the pool areas with the Iu Flex.

The pool areas of the CS and PS domains can be configured as identical pool areas, such as CS
pool area 2 and PS pool area 2, or different pool areas, such as CS pool area 1 and PS pool area
1.
Each pool area has its unique configuration of the CN node capability or number.

WCDMA RAN
Iu Flex Feature Parameter Description

2 Overview

2.3 NRI
The Network Resource Identifier (NRI) identifies the CN node that serves a pool area. The NRI
has a flexible length from 0 bit to 10 bits. 0 bit means no Iu flex. The NRI lengths are the same
for all the CN nodes in one pool area.
In areas where pool areas overlap, the NRI identifies the CN node that serves these overlapping
pool areas. For overlapping pool areas, the NRI lengths must be configured the same for all the
nodes serving specific pool areas.
The CN nodes in the CS domain and those in the PS domain are addressed separately, so the
NRIs of the CS and PS domains are independent of each other.
The NRI is a part of the Temporary Mobile Station Identity (TMSI) for the CS domain, or of
the Packet TMSI (P-TMSI) for the PS domain. The TMSI or P-TMSI is assigned to the UE by
the serving CN node. The TMSI or P-TMSI allocation mechanism of the CN node generates
TMSIs or P-TMSIs with NRIs determined by certain bits.
The association between the NRIs and the CN nodes in the CN pool area is configured on the
RAN nodes.
In the WCDMA system, the UE provides an intra domain NAS node selector (IDNNS) in the
access stratum (AS) part of the Initial Direct Transfer message to the RAN node. The IDNNS
contains a routing parameter with a fixed length of 10 bits. This routing parameter contains the
NRI information. In addition, the IDNNS contains the identity that indicates the source of the
routing parameters. The identity can be TMSI/P-TMSI, international mobile subscriber identity
(IMSI), international mobile equipment identity (IMEI), and so on. The RAN node masks the
significant bits out of the routing parameter part of the IDNNS to determine the NRI that is used
to identify the relevant CN node. The most significant bit of the NRI corresponds to the most
significant bit of the routing parameter in the IDNNS. A routing parameter containing the identity
of IMSI is in range of 0 to 999 (calculated by (IMSI div 10) mod 1000) and is called IMSIROUTE
in this document. The association between IMSIROUTE and the CN nodes in the CN pool area
is configured on the RNC.

2.4 NullNRI
NullNRI is a special value of the NRI, which indicates that the CN node identified by the NRI
is to be offloaded. On receiving a message carrying NullNRI, the RNC starts the IDNNS function
to select an appropriate CN node. NullNRI can be unique in a Public Land Mobile Network
(PLMN) or set separately in the CS domain and PS domain.

2.5 Non-broadcast LAI/RAI


Non-broadcast Location Area Identity (LAI) or Routing Area Identity (RAI) is different from
the normal LAI/RAI in the network. It is used in the scenario that the CN node is to be offloaded.
The UE will immediately initiate Location Update or Route Area Update after receiving the
Non-broadcast LAI/RAI.

WCDMA RAN
Iu Flex Feature Parameter Description

3 NAS Node Selection Function

3.1 Overview
The NNSF performs the selection of a CN node and the processing of the IMSI Paging Message
in both the CS and PS domain.
In the RAN node, the NNSF selects a specific CN node (MSC server or SGSN) and routes the
initial NAS signaling message to the selected CN node.
If a CN node address configured for the NRI can be derived from the initial NAS signaling
message, the NNSF routes the message to the CN node. If no CN node address is configured for
the derived NRI or no NRI can be derived (for example, the UE indicates an identity that contains
no NRI), or the configured CN node cannot be reached, the NNSF selects an available CN node
based on load balancing and routes the message to the selected CN node.
The procedure for NNSF is as follows:
1.

CN Node allocates route information to the UE.


If CN supports the Iu Flex, the CN indicate the NRI in the TMSI or P-TMSI when allocating
the TMSI or P-TMSI to the UE.

2.

UE indicates the route information and sends it to the RNC in the Initial Direct Transfer
message.

3.

RNC selects the CN Node based on the routing information in the Initial Direct Transfer
message.

3.2 UE Indicating Routing


UE indicates the routing information to help RNC select an appropriate CN node. The routing
information is contained in the IDNNS IE in the Initial Direct Transfer message from the UE to
the RNC.
IDNNS IE consists of two parts of routing information:
l

The first part indicates the ID type (TMSI/P-TMSI, IMSI, IMEI) used for calculating the
routing parameter.

The second part indicates the routing parameter with a fixed length of 10 bits.

The routing parameter is encoded by UE according to the following priorities:


1.

The coding is performed based on the TMSI/P-TMSI.Tthe routing parameter is derived


from TMSI or P-TMSI. It is a 10-bit field from the fourteenth bit to the twenty-third bit in
TMSI or P-TMSI. The most significant bit of the NRI shall correspond with the most
significant bit of the routing parameter.

2.

If the TMSI/P-TMSI information is unavailable, but the MS has the USIM/SIM card, the
coding is performed based on the IMSI. The routing parameter is derived from IMSI and
calculated as (IMSI div 10) mod 1000, where "div" means divided by and "mod" means
modulus.

3.

If the MS is not inserted with the USIM/SIM card, the coding is performed based on the
IMEI. The routing parameter is derived from IMEI and calculated as (IMEI div 10) mod
1000.

3 NAS Node Selection Function

3.3 RNC Selecting CN Node


After the RNC received the Initial Direct Transfer message from the UE, the RNC selects a CN
node based on the IDNNS IE in the message.

Selecting CN Node Based on TMSI/P-TMSI


If IDNNS indicates that the route information is from the TMSI or P-TMSI, the RNC selects the
route based on the NRI. The RNC derives the NRI from the routing parameter and then selects
a CN node based on the mapping between the NRI(BSC6900,BSC6910) and the CN nodes. The
mapping is configured by running the ADD UNRIGLBCNIDMAP command.
The mapping must be configured on both the CN and RNC sides. The NRI configured on the
RNC side must be negotiated with the CN so that it is the same as the NRI configured on the
CN side.
In following cases, the RNC selects a CN node based on the load balancing.
l

The CN node corresponding to an NRI is inhibited or cannot be reached.

The value of the NRI is NullNRI.

The NRI is not configured at the RNC.

Calling and called parties follow the same way of selecting the CN node based on TMSI/PTMSI.

Selecting CN Node Based on IMSI


If IDNNS indicates that the route information is from the IMSI, the RNC selects the route based
on the mapping between the IMSI and the CN nodes.
l

If the Initial Direct Transfer message indicates that this message is initiated by a mobile
originated call,
If the IMSI route of a UE is within the configured IMSI range of a CN node, the RNC
routes the UE to the CN node.
The mapping is configured on RNC by running the ADD UIMSIIDNNSCNIDMAP
command.
If the IMSI route of a UE is not configured, the RNC selects a CN node based on the
load balancing.

If the Initial Direct Transfer message indicates that this message is initiated by a mobile
terminated call (paging response), the RNC routes the UE based on the mapping between
IMSI and global CN ID received from CN. If fails, the terminated call is processed as an
originated call.

For details, see 3.4 IMSI Paging.

Selecting CN Node Based on IMEI


If IDNNS indicates that the route information is from the IMEI, the RNC selects the CN node
based on the load balancing.
Calling and called parties follow the same way of selecting the CN node based on IMEI.

3 NAS Node Selection Function

3.4 IMSI Paging


Processing of the IMSI Paging Message (CS Domain)
To increase the success rate of routing the paging response message to the CN node that issues
the paging request, the RNC capable of the Iu Flex needs to process the IMSI paging message
as follows:
l

In R5 protocols or later releases, the Global-CN-ID is contained in the RANAP PAGING


message. If the RNC enables the Iu Flex and the paging message contains only the IMSI
rather than the TMSI, the paging message must contain the Global-CN-ID.

The NNSF in the RNC temporarily stores the map between the IMSI and the Global-CNID upon reception of the paging message. When the NNSF receives the Initial Direct
Transfer message (a paging response with an IMSI), it directly forwards the paging response
to the CN node identified by this Global-CN-ID.

If a CS paging message with mobile identity type IMSI is received over the Gs interface from
the MSC, the SGSN has to contain the MSC/VLR-ID in the paging message or paging-request
message to the RNC.

Processing of the IMSI Paging Message (PS Domain)


Based on 3GPP TS 23.236 (For details, see Reference Documents), a UE returns an Attach
Request message containing the IMSI parameter as a response to the PS IMSI paging. Because
any SGSN can process the Attach Request message, the NNSF for the RNC does not need to
store the SGSN ID when it receives the paging request. The NNSF ensures that the RAN node
selects an available SGSN (for example, based on load balancing) when it receives an Attach
Request containing the IMSI parameter.

Iu-Flex Service Process

The Iu Flex service process is as follows (taking the PS domain as an example).


Figure 4-1 Iu Flex service process

1.

The MS accesses the network through the RAN1, and provides the IDNNS to the RAN1.

2.

The RAN1 obtains the corresponding SGSN based on the IDNNS, and then connects the
MS to the SGSN1.

3.

The SGSN1 sends its NRI to the MS when the MS access is completed.

4.

The MS moves to the area served by the RAN2.

4 Iu-Flex Service Process

5.

When the MS requests to access the network though the RAN2, the MS provides the IDNNS
to the RAN2, containing the SGSN1 NRI.

6.

The RAN2 finds the SGSN1 that serves the MS originally, and then connects the MS to
the SGSN1 that serves the MS at the first time of network access.

When a UE is moving within a Pool area, the UE can be continuously served by a certain CN
node. Therefore, the location update process between the SGSNs is avoided, and the network
load is reduced.

5 Load Balancing

Load Balancing

Load Balancing (WRFD-021306 Iu Flex Load Distribution Management) describes how the
NNSF balances the load between the available CN nodes.
The RNC selects a CN node from the available CN nodes based on the load balancing principle.
Load balancing occurs in one of the following situations:
l

There is no CN node configured for the NRI or IMSIROUTE indicated by the UE.

The CN node corresponding to an NRI or IMSIROUTE cannot be reached.

The CN node corresponding to an NRI or IMSIROUTE is inhibited.

No NRI or IMSIROUTE can be derived.

The value of the NRI is NullNRI.

Based on the load balancing principle, the RNC records the capability of each CN node which
is configured to the NORMAL state and is not in overloaded, and then selects a CN node based
on randomization function for the UE.
Assume that the RNC is connected to three MSCs in NORMAL state (identified as MSC A, B,
and C) and their available capabilities are 10, 20, and 10, respectively. Among the UEs accessing
in load balancing condition, 25% of UEs are routed to MSC A, 50% of UEs are routed to MSC
B, and 25% of UEs are routed to MSC C, according to the rules of load balancing. Other UEs
are routed to the specific CN nodes identified by the NRI.
NOTE

If a CN node whose available capacity is 0 is identified by a valid NRI and the route parameters of a UE
include the NRI, the UE will still be routed to the CN node.

The capability of the CN node is acquired in the following two ways:


l

Static capability
The static capability of the CN node is specified by the AvailCap(BSC6900,BSC6910) of
the ADD UCNNODE command in the RNC.

Dynamic capability

The dynamic capability reflects the real-time state of the CN node capability.
If the parameters CsInfoUpdFlag(BSC6900,BSC6910) or PsInfoUpdFlag
(BSC6900,BSC6910) in the RNC is set to ON, the CN informs the RNC of the dynamic
capability and state through the private IEs of the INFORMATION TRANSFER INDICATION

message. Therefore, the data between the CN and the RNC is synchronized to realize load
balancing.
If the RNC does not receive the message about updating the dynamic capability before the CS
Information Update Protection Timer or PS Information Update Protection Timer expires, the
static capability is preferred.
NOTE

The Iu interface standard messages INFORMATION TRANSFER INDICATION and INFORMATION


TRANSFER CONFIRM contain the extended private IEs. The CN node has to support the extension of
the private IEs to inform the RNC of the dynamic capability.

6 Flow Control

Flow Control

The RNC considers a CN code to be congested when either of the following occurs:
l

The RNC detects Signaling Connection Control Part (SCCP) congestion.

The RNC receives an overload message from the CN node.

In non-Iu Flex networking, if a CN node is congested, the RNC reduces the load on the CN node.
For details, see Flow Control Feature Parameter Description.
In Iu Flex networking, when receiving an Initial Direct Transfer message from a UE, the RNC
forwards the message to the correct CN node based on the routing information carried in the
message. If the CN node is congested, the RNC determines whether to send the message to the
CN code based on the severity of the congestion and randomization function. If the RNC
determines not to send the message to the CN code, the RNC processes the message based on
the setting of RESERVED_SWITCH_3_BIT32 in the RsvSwitch3(BSC6900,BSC6910)
parameter in the RNC command SET UALGORSVPARA.
l

If RESERVED_SWITCH_3_BIT32 is set to 1, the RNC discards the Initial Direct


Transfer message.

If RESERVED_SWITCH_3_BIT32 is set to 0 and if the RNC considers the CN node to


be congested after receiving an overload message from the CN node, the RNC sends the
Initial Direct Transfer message to a normal CN node. If the RNC considers the CN node
to be congested after detecting SCCP congestion, the RNC performs the following
processing:
If RESERVED_SWITCH_3_BIT16 in the RsvSwitch3(BSC6900,BSC6910)
parameter in the SET UALGORSVPARA command is set to 1, the RNC sends the
message to a normal CN node.
If RESERVED_SWITCH_3_BIT16 in the RsvSwitch3(BSC6900,BSC6910)
parameter in the SET UALGORSVPARA command is set to 0, the RNC sends the
message to another CN node, regardless of whether the CN node is congested or not.
NOTE

The RNC selects the CN node for the UE based on the proportion of the available capability of each CN
node in the NORMAL state.

7 Load Re-Distribution

Load Re-Distribution

There are situations where a network operator needs to remove load from one CN node (for
example, to perform scheduled maintenance, upgrade or load re-distribution to avoid overload),
with minimal impact on end users, or additional load on other entities, or both.
Load Re-Distribution helps to re-distribute UEs to other CN nodes. There are two ways to
implement load re-distribution:
l

Load re-distribution based on NullNRI

Load re-distribution based on blocking CN node

Iu Flex Feature Parameter Description

7 Load Re-Distribution

7.1 Load Re-distribution based on NullNRI


Two IDs are added to implement the load re-distribution: NullNRI and Non-broadcast LAI/RAI.
The re-distribution of UE is initiated by the CN node that is to be offloaded. The procedure for
load re-distribution is described as follows:
1.

In the first phase (a couple of Periodic LU or RAU periods long), the UEs doing Location
Update (LU), Routing Area Update (RAU), or Attach are moved to the other CN nodes in
the pool.
When the CN node receives the LU, RAU, or Attach request, it returns a new TMSI or PTMSI with a NullNRI, and a Non-broadcast LAI/RAI in the accept message.
l In the CS domain, the non-broadcast LAI will cause the UE to immediately send a new
LU request, which the RNC node will perform load balancing to route the UE to a new
MSC server due to the NullNRI.
l In the PS domain, the non-broadcast RAI will cause the UE to send a new RAU request.
The periodic routing area update timer is set to a sufficiently low value in the accept
message to reduce the time to trigger the RAU. Shortly after that, the UE sends a new
RAU request, which the RNC node will perform load balancing to route the UE to a
new SGSN due to the NullNRI.

2.

In the second phase (PS domain specific), the SGSN requests all UEs trying to set up PDP
Contexts to detach and reattach. When they reattach, the SGSN moves them as described
in the first phase.

3.

The third phase includes scanning the remaining UEs and initiating the movement of them
to other CN nodes.

In the PS domain, the UEs are requested to detach and reattach, which will cause them to
be moved.

In the CS domain, a new TMSI is allocated to the UEs performing the TMSI re-allocation
procedure (with NullNRI and non-broadcast LAI) so that an LU is triggered, which will
cause them to be moved.

The RNC selects CN node based on the CN state for load re-distribution. The CN state is
negotiated between CN and RAN. The state of CN should be specified in the RNC by the
parameterCNLoadStatus(BSC6900,BSC6910). The state for a CN node can be NORMAL,
OFFLOAD, INHIBITED or BLOCKED.
The principle for selecting a CN node for load re-distribution is as follows:
l

If the CN supports NullNRI:


If the NRI is NullNRI, the RNC can select the CN nodes only in the Normal state.
If the NRI is not NullNRI, the RNC can select the CN nodes only in the Normal or
OFFLOAD state.

The RNC cannot select a CN node in INHIBITED state for a UE.

The UEs being moved from one CN node are prevented from registering in the same CN
node again or in a CN node that is overloaded.

The RNC ensures that the movements do not overload the network and the RNC can handle
the situations where several CN nodes are overloaded simultaneously.

Iu Flex Feature Parameter Description

7 Load Re-Distribution

For multi-operator core network (MOCN) network sharing, re-distribution is always done within
the same CN operator. This is ensured by each CN operator using its own unique NullNRI. The
RNC is pre-configured with the NullNRIs for different CN operators, and it uses the NullNRI
to select a CN node within the same CN operator.

7.2 Load Re-distribution based on Blocking CN Node


If the CN does not support NullNRI, the RNC can block the CN node to help redistribute the
load of the CN node to other CN nodes.
BLOCKED state is a sub-state of NORMAL state. The BLOCKED state can be set in the RNC
by run the following command.
MOD UCNNODE: CnOpIndex=1, CNId=2, CNDomainId=CS_DOMAIN,
CNLoadStatus=NORMAL, TnlBearerType=ATM_TRANS,
Switch3GPP25415CR0125=OFF,
PROCESSSWITCH=IUFLEX_NOT_SEL_BLOCK_SWITCH-1;
When a CN node is in the BLOCKED state, the UE in the CN node is redistributed by the RNC
to other CN nodes.
A UE can still access a CN node in the BLOCKED state in the following two situations:
l

When the CN is in BLOCKED state and other CNs are in NORMAL state, the UEs that
are routed to this CN node cannot access the CN and will be routed to other CNs. However,
the UE can still access the CN node if the UE is responding to the paging message from
this CN node.

When the CN is in BLOCKED state and other CNs are in INHIBITED state or in
OFFLOAD state or are disconnected or are overloaded, the UEs can still access the CN
node.

NOTE

The CNId of the same PLMN cannot be the same,even the different CN domain. The setting of
CNId must be consistent between the RNC and CN. If CNId on the CN is set to 5, CNId on the
RNC must also be set to 5.

4.

Run the RNC MML command ADD UNRIGLBCNIDMAP. In this step, set Cn Operator
Index, CN node ID, and Network resource identity to configure the mapping
relationships between NRI and CN nodes.

5.

Optional: Run the RNC MML command ADD UIMSIIDNNSCNIDMAP to configure


the mapping relationships between international mobile subscriber identity (IMSI) ranges
and CN nodes.

After configuring the mapping relationships, the RNC routes the UE whose IMSI is within the
IMSI range to the specified CN. To ensure load balance among CN nodes, the IMSI range
mapped to each CN node must match the capacity of the CN node.

Verifying load balancing in static capacity mode

1.

Run the RNC MML command DSP UCNNODE to query the capacity ratio of CN nodes.

2.

Check the following performance counters on the M2000 to verify that the RNC performs
load balancing based on the preconfigured CN capacity:

Performance counters for CS service setup:


VS.IU.LdBalRtCS.IMSI
VS.IU.LdBalRtCS.InValidNRI
VS.IU.LdBalRtCS.IMEI

Performance counters for PS service setup:


VS.IU.Load.RoutePS.IMSI
VS.IU.Load.RoutePS.NRI
VS.IU.Load.RoutePS.IMEI

Verifying load balancing in dynamic capacity mode

1.

Run the RNC MML command DSP UCNNODE to query the capacity ratio of CN nodes.

2.

On the RNC LMT, choose Trace > UMTS Services to initiate Uu and Iu interface message
tracing.

3.

Check the traced messages. If the CN sends the RNC an INFORMATION TRANSFER
INDICATION message, the dynamic CN capacity ratio is updated and used. If the CN
does not send any INFORMATION TRANSFER INDICATION message to the RNC,
the static CN capacity ratio is used.

4.

Check the following performance counters on the M2000 to verify that the RNC performs
load balancing based on the dynamic CN capacity ratio:

Verifying load redistribution based on NullNRI

1.

On the RNC LMT, choose Trace > UMTS Services to initiate Uu and Iu interface message
tracing.

2.

Power off the UE. The PTMSI of the UE is assigned by SGSN1.

3.

Set SGSN1 to the OFFLOAD state and SGSN2 to the NORMAL state on the RNC.

4.

Set SGSN1 to the OFFLOAD state on SGSN1.

5.

Power on the UE and the UE makes an attach request. Check the traced Iu interface
messages. The expected result is as follows:
l The RNC routes the RRC_INIT_DIRECT_TRANSFER message to SGSN1 based
on NULL NRI. The attach reception message from SGSN1 contains NULL NRI and
non-broadcasting location areas.
l After receiving the non-broadcasting location areas, the UE sends a new routing area
update (RAU) request and contains NULL NRI in the
RRC_INIT_DIRECT_TRANSFER message. The RNC routes the
RRC_INIT_DIRECT_TRANSFER message to SGSN2, of which the state is not
OFFLOAD, based on NULL NRI.

Verifying load redistribution based on Block CN Node

1.

On the RNC LMT, choose Trace > UMTS Services to initiate Uu and Iu interface message
tracing.

2.

Power off the UE. The PTMSI of the UE is assigned by SGSN1.

3.

Set SGSN1 to the BLOCK state and SGSN2 to the NORMAL state on the RNC.

4.

Power on the UE and the UE makes an attach request. Check the


RRC_INIT_DIRECT_TRANSFER message traced on the Iu interface.

Expected result: The RRC_INIT_DIRECT_TRANSFER message contains NRI of SGSN1.


The RNC routes the RRC_INIT_DIRECT_TRANSFER message to SGSN2 because SGSN1
is in the BLOCK state.
