C  I-RNTI Reference Profilesp. 252

The I-RNTI provides the new NG-RAN node a reference to the UE context in the old NG-RAN node. How the new NG-RAN node is able to resolve the old NG-RAN ID from the I-RNTI is a matter of proper configuration in the old and new NG-RAN node.
Table C-1 below provides some typical partitioning of a 40bit I-RNTI, assuming the following content:
  • UE specific reference: reference to the UE context within a logical NG-RAN node;
  • NG-RAN node address index: information to identify the NG-RAN node that has allocated the UE specific part;
  • PLMN-specific information: information supporting network sharing deployments, providing an index to the PLMN ID part of the Global NG-RAN node identifier.
Profile ID UE specific reference NG-RAN node address index (e.g., gNB ID, eNB ID) RAT-specific information PLMN-specific information Comment
120 bits (~1 million values)20 bits (~1 million values)N/AN/ANG-RAN node address index may be very well represented by the LSBs of the gNB ID.
This profile may be applicable for any NG-RAN RAT.
220 bits (~1 million values)16 bits (65.000 nodes)N/A4 bits (Max 16 PLMNs)Max number of PLMN IDs broadcast in NR is 12.
This profile may be applicable for any NG-RAN RAT.
324 bits (16 million values)16 bits (65.000 nodes)N/AN/AReduced node address to maximise addressable UE contexts.
This profile may be applicable for any NG-RAN RAT.

D  SPID ranges and mapping of SPID values to cell reselection and inter-RAT/inter frequency handover prioritiesp. 253

The Subscriber Profile ID for RAT/Frequency Priority (SPID) values are defined in Annex I of TS 36.300.
From these SPID reference values, the SPID=253 also applies for 5GC.
In addition, the SPID values defined below applies for 5GC.
SPID = 252
Configuration parameter Value Meaning
2Rx XR device subscribertrueThe selection provides information that subscriber is an XR device and is permitted to utilise a minimum of two Rx antenna ports for the NR bands where four Rx antenna ports are baseline as given in TS 38.101-1.

E  NG-RAN Architecture for Radio Access Network Sharing with multiple cell ID broadcastp. 254

Each NG-RAN node serving a cell identified by a Cell Identity associated with either a subset of PLMNs, or a subset of SNPNs, or a subset of PNI-NPNs is connected to another NG-RAN node via a single Xn-C interface instance.
Each Xn-C interface instance is setup and removed individually.
Xn-C interface instances terminating at NG-RAN nodes which share the same physical radio resources may share the same signalling transport resources. If this option is applied:
  • Non-UE associated signalling is associated to an Xn-C interface instance by including an Interface Instance Indication in the XnAP message;
  • Node related, non-UE associated Xn-C interface signalling may provide information destined for multiple logical nodes in a single XnAP procedure instance once the Xn-C interface instance is setup;
  • A UE associated signalling connection is associated to an Xn-C interface instance by allocating values for the corresponding NG-RAN node UE XnAP IDs so that they can be mapped to that Xn-C interface instance.

F (Normative)  Use and structure of the I-RNTI |R17|p. 255

The I-RNTI provides an NG-RAN node with a reference to the UE context and a reference to the NG-RAN node that allocated the UE context.
To support an NG-RAN node in resolving the Local NG-RAN ID of the NG-RAN node that allocated the UE context, the I-RNTI structure is as follows:
  • the first part (starting from the MSB of the I-RNTI) identifies the I-RNTI profile. It is 2 bits long for a Full I-RNTI or 1 bit long for a short I-RNTI, and it indicates the length of a Local NG-RAN Node Identifier of the NG-RAN Node that allocated the I-RNTI;
  • the second part, immediately following the first part, is a Local NG-RAN Node Identifier;
  • the third part, immediately following the second part, identifies the UE context stored in the NG-RAN node that allocated the I-RNTI.
In case a NG-RAN node takes an additional Local NG-RAN Node identifier into use or removes a Local NG-RAN Node identifier currently in use it informs its neighbour NG-RAN nodes about this change.
The I-RNTI profiles for Full I-RNTI are described in Table F-1.
