In the case of conflict between the information in this Annex and other information in the main body of the present document, the information in the main body takes precedence.
The following Tables list the functions and procedures that are:
Supported or not supported over NB-IoT RAT, including whether for CP CIoT EPS Optimisation only, UP CIoT EPS Optimisation only or both.
Optional for the UE and/or network when using NB-IoT RAT.
The Tables M-1 to M-5 are ordered by clause number according to the present specification. The Table M-6 is ordered by clause number according to
. The notation "CP/UP/Both" indicates whether a particular item is supported for CP CIoT EPS Optimisation only, UP CIoT EPS Optimisation only or both.
