This TS describes all procedures that assign, reconfigure and release radio resources. Included are e.g. procedures for transitions between different states and substates, handovers and measurement reports. The emphasis is on showing the combined usage of both peer-to-peer messages and interlayer primitives to illustrate the functional split between the layers, as well as the combination of elementary procedures for selected examples.
The peer-to-peer elementary procedure descriptions and interlayer dependencies are described in the related protocol descriptions TS 25.321
, TS 25.322
, TS 25.331
, and they are thus not within the scope of this TS.
The interlayer procedures and interlayer dependencies in this TS are informative.
