The scope of this TR is a Release 5 feasibility study that evaluate aspects of User Equipment Management (UEM) which would be beneficial to standardise post-Release-5. For Release 5 this TR does not have a factual impact on other 3GPP Work Items (WIs).
User Equipment (UE) includes both the USIM and Mobile Equipment (ME) domains and so it is emphasised that the scope of UEM includes both the USIM and ME domains.
This TR is focussed on the UEM interface to the UE Over-The-Air (OTA). There is a potential direct interface between the UE Managers and the UE; for example, a user may be able to upgrade the operating system in its UE by taking it to the UE manufacturer's service centre. This direct interface is outside the scope of this TR.
The user interface will be important in delivering UEM. However, the user interface is both outside the scope of this TR and outside the scope of the standardisation of UEM.
