4  Overview of IP Multimedia (IM) Core Network (CN) subsystem inter-UE transfer

4.1  General

Inter-UE transfer provides the capability of transferring the communication sessions with multiple media across different UEs and is part of Service Continuity (SC) as described in TS 23.237.
Inter-UE transfer does not apply to emergency calls as described in TS 24.229.
Inter-UE transfer is an optional part of SC.
The following procedures are provided within this document:
  • procedures for UE discovery for inter-UE transfer are specified in clause 9;
  • procedures for inter-UE transfer without establishment of collaborative session are specified in clause 10;
  • procedures for collaborative session establishment for inter-UE transfer are specified in clause 11;
  • procedures for media transfer within collaborative session for inter-UE transfer are specified in clause 12;
  • procedures for release of collaborative session for inter-UE transfer in clause 13;
  • procedures for addition and deletion of media with collaborative session for inter-UE transfer in clause 14;
  • procedures for session discovery in clause 15;
  • procedures for collaborative sessions of participants of different subscriptions are specified in clause 16;
  • procedures for establishment of collaborative sessions during session setup are specified in clause 17;
  • procedures for assignment and transfer of control of a collaborative session are specified in clause 18;
  • procedures for media flow transfer within a collaborative session are specified in clause 19;
  • procedures for session replication / media replication performed by the SCC AS are specified in clause 20;
  • procedures for session replication / media replication performed by the remote UE are specified in clause 21;
  • procedures for collaborative session handling upon loss of collaborative session are specified in clause 22;
  • procedures for collaborative session media modification are specified in clause 23; and
  • procedures for service continuity and MMTEL interactions are specified in clause 24.
    Inter-UE transfer procedures are not limited by amount of established sessions.

4.2  Underlying network capabilitiesWord‑p. 14

Inter-UE transfer assumes the use of a number of underlying network capabilities:
  1. provision by the home network operator of SCC AS on the IM CN subsystem, as specified in TS 24.229.

4.3  URI and address assignments

In order to support SC to a subscriber, the following URI and address assignments are assumed:
  1. in this version of the document, the SC UE for inter-UE transfer will be configured with an Inter UE Transfer SCC AS URI. The Inter UE Transfer SCC AS URI is used in the inter UE transfer procedures.

5  Functional entitiesWord‑p. 15

5.1  Introduction

This clause associates the functional entities with the inter-UE transfer roles described in the stage 2 architecture document (see TS 23.237).

5.2  User Equipment (UE)

If the SC UE supports the Controller UE procedures for IUT transfer then the SC UE may include the g.3gpp.iut-controller media feature tag as described in annex B in the Contact header of SIP requests and SIP responses.
To be compliant with inter-UE transfer in this document, a UE shall implement the role of an SC UE:
