5.1.1  Generalp. 30

In 5GS, the parameters for 5G ProSe Direct Discovery, 5G ProSe Direct Communication, 5G ProSe UE-to-Network Relay and 5G ProSe UE-to-UE Relay services may be made available to the UE in following ways:
  • provisioned in the ME; or
  • configured in the UICC; or
  • provisioned in the ME and configured in the UICC; or
  • provided or updated by the ProSe Application Server via PCF and/or PC1 reference point; or
  • provided or updated by the PCF to the UE.
If the same parameters described in clauses 5.1.2.1, 5.1.3.1, 5.1.4.1 and 5.1.5.1 are provided by different sources, the UE shall consider them in the following priority order:
  • provided or updated by the PCF (including parameters determined by the PCF itself and parameters provided by the ProSe Application Server to the PCF as specified in clause 6.2.5);
  • provided or updated by the ProSe Application Server via PC1 reference point;
  • configured in the UICC;
  • provisioned in the ME.
The parameters provided or updated by the ProSe Application Server via PC1 reference point may need to be complemented with configuration data from other sources listed above.
The basic principles of service authorization and provisioning for 5G ProSe Direct Discovery, 5G ProSe Direct Communication, 5G ProSe UE-to-Network Relay and 5G ProSe UE-to-UE Relay services are as follows:
  • The PCF in the HPLMN may configure a list of PLMNs where the UE is authorized to use 5G ProSe Direct Discovery.
  • The PCF in the HPLMN may configure a list of PLMNs where the UE is authorised to use 5G ProSe Direct Communication.
  • The PCF in the HPLMN may configure a list of PLMNs where the UE is authorised to act as 5G ProSe UE-to-Network Relay. Authorisation for 5G ProSe Layer-2 UE-to-Network Relay and 5G ProSe Layer-3 UE-to-Network Relay are independent of each other.
  • The PCF in the HPLMN may configure a list of PLMNs where the UE is authorised to access 5GC via 5G ProSe UE-to-Network Relay (i.e. to act as 5G ProSe Remote UE). Authorisation to access via 5G ProSe Layer-2 UE-to-Network Relay and via 5G ProSe Layer-3 UE-to-Network Relay are independent of each other.
  • The PCF in the HPLMN may configure a list of PLMNs where the UE is authorised to act as 5G ProSe UE-to-UE Relay. Authorisation for 5G ProSe Layer-2 UE-to-UE Relay and 5G ProSe Layer-3 UE-to-UE Relay are independent of each other.
  • The PCF in the HPLMN may configure a list of PLMNs where the UE is authorised to access 5G ProSe UE-to-UE Relay (i.e. to act as 5G ProSe End UE). Authorisation to access via 5G ProSe Layer-2 UE-to-UE Relay and via 5G ProSe Layer-3 UE-to-UE Relay are independent of each other.
  • The PCF in the HPLMN merges authorization information from home and other PLMNs and provides the UE with the final authorization information.
  • The PCF in the VPLMN or HPLMN may revoke the authorization (via H-PCF when roaming) at any time by using the UE Configuration Update procedure for transparent UE Policy delivery procedure defined in clause 4.2.4.3 of TS 23.502.
  • The ProSe Policy/parameters provisioning to UE is controlled by the PCF and may be triggered by UE. The PCF provisions one or more of the following ProSe Policy/parameters:
    • ProSe Policy/parameters for 5G ProSe Direct Discovery as specified in clause 5.1.2.1;
    • ProSe Policy/parameters for 5G ProSe Direct Communications as specified in clause 5.1.3.1;
    • ProSe Policy/parameters for 5G ProSe Layer-2 and/or Layer-3 UE-to-Network Relay as specified in clause 5.1.4.1;
    • ProSe Policy/parameters for 5G ProSe Layer-2 and/or Layer-3 Remote UE as specified in clause 5.1.4.1.
    • ProSe Policy/parameters for 5G ProSe Layer-2 and/or Layer-3 UE-to-UE Relay as specified in clause 5.1.5.1.
    • ProSe Policy/parameters for 5G ProSe Layer-2 and/or Layer-3 End UE as specified in clause 5.1.5.1.
  • The PCF includes the 5G ProSe Policy/parameters in a Policy Section identified by a Policy Section Identifier (PSI) as specified in clause 6.1.2.2.2 of TS 23.503.
In addition to the above, ProSe usage reporting configuration and rules for charging can be (pre)configured in the UE or provided by the PCF.
In addition to the above, the path selection policy can be (pre)configured in the UE or provided by the PCF as defined in clause 5.11. A path preference for ProSe Services can be provided by ProSe Application Server to UDR and may be used by PCF for path selection policy generation and update.
When a 5G ProSe Layer-3 Remote UE is using a 5G ProSe Layer-3 UE-to-Network Relay without involving N3IWF, the PCF based provisioning and update of 5G ProSe Policy/parameters to the 5G ProSe Layer-3 Remote UE are not supported.

5.1.1a  General principles for applying policy/parameters |R18|p. 32

For services (i.e. 5G ProSe Direct Discovery, 5G ProSe Direct Communication, 5G ProSe UE-to-Network Relay discovery, 5G ProSe UE-to-Network Relay communication, 5G ProSe UE-to-UE Relay discovery and 5G ProSe UE-to-UE Relay communication) over PC5 reference point, the operator may pre-configure the UEs with the required provisioning parameters for the service, without the need for the UEs to connect to the 5GC to get this initial configuration. The following apply:
  • The provisioning parameters for the service could be from different sources and their priorities are described in clause 5.1.1.
  • The ME provisioning parameters shall not be erased when a USIM is deselected or replaced.
  • The UE shall use radio resources for the service as follows:
    • While a UE has a serving cell and is camped on a cell and the UE intends to use for 5G ProSe the radio resources (i.e. carrier frequency) operated by this cell, then the UE shall use the radio resource description indicated by this cell the UE is camped on and ignore any radio resource description of the same radio resource provisioned in the ME or the UICC. If the cell does not provide radio resources for ProSe, the UE shall not perform ProSe message transmission and reception on radio resources operated by this cell. The UE is allowed to perform the service with another UE not served by the same PLMN;
    • If the UE intends to use "operator-managed" radio resources (i.e. carrier frequency) for 5G ProSe that are not operated by the UE's serving cell, as specified in the related Policy/Parameter provisioning, or if the UE is out of coverage, the UE shall search for a cell in any PLMN that is operating the provisioned radio resources (i.e. carrier frequency) as defined in TS 38.300 and TS 38.304; and:
      • If the UE finds such a cell in the registered PLMN or a PLMN equivalent to the registered PLMN and authorization for the service to this PLMN is confirmed, the UE shall use the radio resource description indicated by that cell. If that cell does not provide radio resources for ProSe, the UE shall not perform ProSe message transmission and reception on those radio resources;
      • If the UE finds such a cell but not in the registered PLMN or a PLMN equivalent to the registered PLMN and that cell belongs to a PLMN authorized for the service and provides radio resources for ProSe then the UE shall perform PLMN selection triggered by the service as defined in TS 23.122;
      • If the UE finds such cell but not in a PLMN authorized for the service the UE shall not use the service;
      • If the UE does not find any such cell in any PLMN, then the UE shall consider itself "not served by NG-RAN" and use radio resources provisioned in the ME or the UICC. If no such provision exists in the ME or the UICC or the provision does not authorize the service, then the UE is not authorized to transmit;
      • The UE is allowed to use "operator-managed" radio resources (i.e. carrier frequency) provisioned in the ME or the UICC for the service if the UICC indicates it is authorized;
    • If the UE intends to use "non-operator-managed" radio resources (i.e. carrier frequency) for 5G ProSe, according to TS 36.331 or TS 38.331 and as specified in clause 5.1.2.1, then the UE shall perform the service using resource provisioned in the ME or the UICC. If no such provision exists in the ME or the UICC or the provision does not authorize the service, then the UE is not authorized to transmit;
  • The UE provisioning shall support setting Geographical Areas;
  • The service is only specified for NR.
