8.18  Overall procedure for Small Data Transmission during RRC Inactive |R17|p. 102

8.18.1  RACH based SDTp. 102

The procedure for RACH based small data transmission in RRC Inactive is shown in Figure 8.18.1-1.

Up
Step 1.
The UE in RRC Inactive sends the RRCResumeRequest message together with UL SDT data and/or UL SDT signalling.
Step 2.
The gNB-DU buffers the UL SDT data and/or UL SDT signalling.
Step 3.
The step 3 is as defined in step 4 in clause 8.6.2, including an indication of SDT access. The gNB-DU may also provide SDT assistance information.
Step 4-5.
The steps 4-5 are as defined in steps 6-7 in clause 8.9.6.2. The UL SDT data, if any, is forwarded to the gNB-CU-UP, and the UL signalling, if any, is forwarded to the gNB-CU-CP via the UL RRC MESSAGE TRANSFER message, in which any UL NAS PDU is delivered to AMF.
Step 6.
The gNB-CU-CP sends the BEARER CONTEXT MODIFICATION REQUEST message including an resume indication for SDT DRBs. The gNB-CU-CP also includes the F1-U DL TEIDs received from the gNB-DU in step 5.
Step 7.
The gNB-CU-CP responds with the BEARER CONTEXT MODIFICATION RESPONSE message.

8.18.2  CG based SDTp. 103

The procedure for CG based small data transmission in RRC Inactive is shown in Figure 8.18.2-1.

Up
Step 1.
The gNB-CU decides to move UE into RRC_INACTIVE state.
Step 2.
The gNB-CU-CP decides to configure CG-SDT, it sends UE CONTEXT MODIFICATION REQUEST message including a query indication for CG-SDT related resource configuration associated with the information of SDT Radio Bearer(s).
Step 3.
The gNB-DU sends the UE CONTEXT MODIFICATION RESPONSE message including the CG-SDT related resource configurations for the requested SDT Radio Bearer(s) within the DU to CU RRC Information IE.
Step 4.
The gNB-CU-CP sends the BEARER CONTEXT MODIFICATION REQUEST towards the gNB-CU-UP, with the suspend indication.
Step 5.
The gNB-CU-UP sends the BEARER CONTEXT MODIFICATION RESPONSE towards the gNB-CU-CP.
Step 6.
The gNB-CU-CP sends the UE CONTEXT RELEASE COMMAND message to the gNB-DU including an RRCRelease message to the UE with the CG-SDT information within suspend configuration. The gNB-CU notifies the gNB-DU to keep the SDT RLC config, F1-U tunnels, F1AP UE association, and store the CG resource for SDT when the UE is entering RRC_INACTIVE state with an explicit CG-SDT kept indicator.
Step 7.
The gNB-DU sends the RRCRelease message to UE.
Step 8.
The gNB-DU sends UE CONTEXT RELEASE COMPLETE message. The gNB-DU keeps the SDT RLC config, F1-U tunnels, F1AP UE association, and stores the CG resource for SDT when the UE entering RRC_INACTIVE. The gNB-DU also stores the C-RNTI, CS-RNTI, and which bearers are CG-SDT bearers.
After a period of time of the UE being in RRC_INACTIVE state.
Step 9.
The UE decides to perform CG based SDT procedure, it sends the RRCResumeRequest message together with UL SDT data/UL NAS PDU.
Step 10.
The gNB-DU sends the UL RRC MESSAGE TRANSFER message including the RRCResumeRequest message to indicate the access due to CG-SDT.
Step 11/12.
The gNB-CU-CP initiates the BEARER CONTEXT MODIFICATION procedure to resume SDT DRBs.
Step 13 - 13a.
The gNB-DU sends the UL SDT data, if any, to the gNB-CU-UP, and/or sends the UL signalling, if any, to the gNB-CU-CP via the UL RRC MESSAGE TRANSFER message, in which any UL NAS PDU is delivered to AMF.

8.18.3  RA-SDT or non-SDT with CG-SDT configurationp. 104

The procedure for the case where the UE has CG-SDT resource configurations but decides to perform RACH based small data transmission in RRC Inactive or to perform RACH procedure to transit to RRC Connected (see TS 38.321, clause 5.27) is shown in Figure 8.18.3-1.

Up
Step 1.
The UE in RRC Inactive sends RRCResumeRequest message. If the UE decides to perform RACH based SDT procedure, it also sends UL SDT data and/or UL SDT signalling.
Step 2.
The gNB-DU buffers the UL SDT data and/or UL SDT signalling.
Step 3.
The gNB-DU sends the INITIAL UL RRC MESSAGE TRANSFER message to the gNB-CU-CP, including a new gNB-DU UE F1AP ID, and in case of RACH based SDT access, the gNB-DU provides an indication of SDT access and may also the SDT assistance information.
Step 4.
The gNB-CU-CP sends the UE CONTEXT SETUP REQUEST message with the stored F1 UL TEIDs and the new gNB-DU UE F1AP ID received in step 3.
In case that the gNB-DU is the one that sent the RRCRelease message with CG-SDT resource configurations to the UE, the gNB-CU-CP also includes the old gNB-DU UE F1AP ID and the old gNB-CU F1AP UE ID within the Old CG-SDT Session Info IE of the UE CONTEXT SETUP REQUEST message.
In case that the gNB-CU-CP is the one that generated the RRCRelease message with CG-SDT resource configurations but the gNB-DU is not the old gNB-DU that sent the RRCRelease message to the UE, the gNB-CU-CP initiates the UE Context Release procedure by sending the UE CONTEXT RELEASE COMMAND message to the old gNB-DU.
In case that the UE accesses a gNB other than the last serving gNB, upon receiving the RETRIEVE UE CONTEXT REQUEST message from the receiving gNB-CU-CP, the last serving gNB-CU-CP initiates the UE Context Release procedure by sending the UE CONTEXT RELEASE COMMAND message to the last serving gNB-DU.
Step 5.
The gNB-DU sends the UE CONTEXT SETUP RESPONSE message with the new gNB-DU UE F1AP ID. In case the old gNB-DU UE F1AP ID is received within the Old CG-SDT Session Info IE in step 4, the gNB-DU retrieves the stored CG-SDT resource configurations and UE context based on the old gNB-DU F1AP UE ID in the Old CG-SDT Session Info IE, if any, and associates them with the new gNB-DU F1AP UE ID.
