4  Control of UE/E-UTRAN measurements

In this chapter the general measurement control concept of the higher layers is briefly described to provide an understanding on how L1 measurements are initiated and controlled by higher layers.
With the measurement specifications L1 provides measurement capabilities for the UE and E-UTRAN. These measurements can be classified in different reported measurement types: intra-frequency, inter-frequency, inter-system, traffic volume, quality and UE internal measurements (see the RRC Protocol [7]).
In the L1 measurement definitions, see chapter 5, the measurements are categorised as measurements in the UE (the messages for these will be described in the MAC Protocol [6] or RRC Protocol [7] or LPP Protocol [11]) or measurements in the E-UTRAN (the messages for these will be described in the Frame Protocol or LPPa Protocol [12]).
To initiate a specific measurement, the E-UTRAN transmits a 'RRC connection reconfiguration message' to the UE including a measurement ID and type, a command (setup, modify, release), the measurement objects, the measurement quantity, the reporting quantities and the reporting criteria (periodical/event-triggered), see [7] or E-SMLC transmits an 'LPP Request Location Information message' to UE, see [11].
When the reporting criteria are fulfilled the UE shall answer with a 'measurement report message' to the E-UTRAN including the measurement ID and the results or an 'LPP Provide Location Information message' to the E-SMLC, see [11].
For idle mode, the measurement information elements are broadcast in the System Information.
