If the 5G-S-TMSI is not received by the AMF in the INITIAL UE MESSAGE message whereas expected, the AMF shall consider the procedure as failed.

8.6.2  Downlink NAS Transport

8.6.2.1  General

The Downlink NAS Transport procedure is used when the AMF only needs to send a NAS message transparently via the NG-RAN node to the UE, and a UE-associated logical NG-connection exists for the UE or the AMF has received the RAN UE NGAP ID IE in an INITIAL UE MESSAGE message or if the NG-RAN node has already initiated a UE-associated logical NG-connection by sending an INITIAL UE MESSAGE message via another NG interface instance.

8.6.2.2  Successful OperationWord‑p. 71
Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.413, Figure 8.6.2.2-1: Downlink NAS transport
Up
The AMF initiates the procedure by sending a DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message to the NG-RAN node. If the UE-associated logical NG-connection is not established, the AMF shall allocate a unique AMF UE NGAP ID to be used for the UE and include that in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message; by receiving the AMF UE NGAP ID IE in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message, the NG-RAN node establishes the UE-associated logical NG-connection.
If the RAN Paging Priority IE is included in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message, the NG-RAN node may use it to determine a priority for paging the UE in RRC_INACTIVE state.
The NAS-PDU IE contains an AMF - UE message that is transferred without interpretation in the NG-RAN node.
If the Mobility Restriction List IE is contained in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message, the NG-RAN node shall overwrite any previously stored mobility restriction information in the UE context. The NG-RAN node shall use the information in the Mobility Restriction List IE if present in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message to:
  • determine a target for subsequent mobility action for which the NG-RAN node provides information about the target of the mobility action towards the UE;
  • select a proper SCG during dual connectivity operation;
  • assign proper RNA(s) for the UE when moving the UE to RRC_INACTIVE state.
If the Mobility Restriction List IE is not contained in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message and there is no previously stored mobility restriction information, the NG-RAN node shall consider that no roaming and no access restriction apply to the UE.
If the Index to RAT/Frequency Selection Priority IE is included in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message, the NG-RAN node shall, if supported, use it as defined in TS 23.501.
The UE Aggregate Maximum Bit Rate IE should be sent to the NG-RAN node if the AMF has not sent it previously. If it is included in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message, the NG-RAN node shall store the UE Aggregate Maximum Bit Rate in the UE context, and use the received UE Aggregate Maximum Bit Rate for all Non-GBR QoS flows for the concerned UE as specified in TS 23.501.

If the CE-mode-B Restricted IE is included in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message and the Enhanced Coverage Restriction IE is not set to "restricted" and the Enhanced Coverage Restricted information stored in the UE context is not set to "restricted", the NG-RAN node shall, if supported, store this information in the UE context and use it as defined in TS 23.501.
If the UE Radio Capability IE is included in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message, the NG-RAN node shall store this information in the UE context, and use it as defined in TS 38.300.
If the End Indication IE is included in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message and set to "no further data", the NG-RAN node shall consider that besides the included NAS PDU in this message, there are no further NAS PDUs to be transmitted for this UE.
If the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message contains the UE Radio Capability ID IE, the NG-RAN node shall, if supported, use it as specified in TS 23.501 and TS 23.502.
Interactions with Initial UE Message procedure:
The NG-RAN node shall use the AMF UE NGAP ID IE and RAN UE NGAP ID IE received in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message as identification of the logical connection even if the RAN UE NGAP ID IE had been allocated in an INITIAL UE MESSAGE message sent over a different NG interface instance.
Interaction with the UE Radio Capability Info Indication procedure:
If the UE Capability Info Request IE set to "requested" is included in the DOWNLINK NAS TRANSPORT message, the NG-RAN node shall trigger the UE Radio Capability Info Indication procedure if UE capability related information was successfully retrieved from the UE.
