8.7  Interface Management Procedures

8.7.1  NG Setup

8.7.1.1  General

The purpose of the NG Setup procedure is to exchange application level data needed for the NG-RAN node and the AMF to correctly interoperate on the NG-C interface. This procedure shall be the first NGAP procedure triggered after the TNL association has become operational. The procedure uses non-UE associated signalling.
This procedure erases any existing application level configuration data in the two nodes, replaces it by the one received and clears AMF overload state information at the NG-RAN node. If the NG-RAN node and AMF do not agree on retaining the UE contexts this procedure also re-initialises the NGAP UE-related contexts (if any) and erases all related signalling connections in the two nodes like an NG Reset procedure would do.

8.7.1.2  Successful Operation

Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.413, Figure 8.7.1.2-1: NG setup: successful operation
Up
The NG-RAN node initiates the procedure by sending an NG SETUP REQUEST message including the appropriate data to the AMF. The AMF responds with an NG SETUP RESPONSE message including the appropriate data.
If the Configured TAC Indication IE set to "true" is included for a Tracking Area contained in the Supported TA List IE in the NG SETUP REQUEST message, the AMF may take it into account to optimise NG-C signalling towards this NG-RAN node.
If the UE Retention Information IE set to "ues-retained" is included in the NG SETUP REQUEST message, the AMF may accept the proposal to retain the existing UE related contexts and signalling connections by including the UE Retention Information IE set to "ues-retained" in the NG SETUP RESPONSE message.
If the AMF supports IAB, the AMF shall include the IAB Supported IE in the NG SETUP RESPONSE message.
The AMF shall include the Backup AMF Name IE, if available, in the Served GUAMI List IE in the NG SETUP RESPONSE message. The NG-RAN node shall, if supported, consider the AMF as indicated by the Backup AMF Name IE when performing AMF reselection, as specified in TS 23.501.
If the GUAMI Type IE is included in the NG SETUP RESPONSE message, the NG-RAN node shall store the received value and use it for further AMF selection as defined in TS 23.501.
If the RAN Node Name IE is included in the NG SETUP REQUEST message, the AMF may use this IE as a human readable name of the NG-RAN node. If the Extended RAN Node Name IE is included in the NG SETUP REQUEST message, the AMF may use this IE as a human readable name of the NG-RAN node and shall ignore the RAN Node Name IE if also included.
If the AMF Name IE is included in the NG SETUP RESPONSE message, the NG-RAN node may use this IE as a human readable name of the AMF. If the Extended AMF Name IE is included in the NG SETUP RESPONSE message, the NG-RAN node may use this IE as a human readable name of the AMF and shall ignore the AMF Name IE if also included.
If the NB-IoT Default Paging DRX IE is included in the NG SETUP REQUEST message, the AMF shall take it into account for paging.
If the RAT Information IE is included in the NG SETUP REQUEST message, the AMF shall handle this information as specified in TS 23.502.
If the NID IE within the NPN Support IE is included within a Broadcast PLMN Item IE in the NG SETUP REQUEST message, the AMF shall consider that the NG-RAN node supports the indicated S-NSSAI(s) for the corresponding tracking area code for the SNPN identified by the PLMN Identity IE and the NID IE.
If the NID IE within the NPN Support IE is included within a PLMN Support Item IE in the NG SETUP RESPONSE message, the NG-RAN node shall consider that the AMF supports the SNPN identified by the PLMN Identity IE and the NID IE.

If the AMF cannot accept the setup, it should respond with an NG SETUP FAILURE message and appropriate cause value.
If the NG SETUP FAILURE message includes the Time to Wait IE, the NG-RAN node shall wait at least for the indicated time before reinitiating the NG Setup procedure towards the same AMF.

8.7.1.4  Abnormal Conditions

If the NG-RAN node initiates the procedure by sending an NG SETUP REQUEST message including the PLMN Identity IEs and none of the PLMNs provided by the NG-RAN node is identified by the AMF, then the AMF shall reject the NG Setup procedure with an appropriate cause value.

8.7.2  RAN Configuration Update

8.7.2.1  General

The purpose of the RAN Configuration Update procedure is to update application level configuration data needed for the NG-RAN node and the AMF to interoperate correctly on the NG-C interface. This procedure does not affect existing UE-related contexts, if any.

Up
The NG-RAN node initiates the procedure by sending a RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message to the AMF including an appropriate set of updated configuration data that it has just taken into operational use. The AMF responds with a RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE ACKNOWLEDGE message to acknowledge that it successfully updated the configuration data. If an information element is not included in the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the AMF shall interpret that the corresponding configuration data is not changed and shall continue to operate the NG-C interface with the existing related configuration data.
If the Supported TA List IE is included in the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the AMF shall overwrite the whole list of supported TAs and the corresponding list of supported slices for each TA, and use them for subsequent registration area management of the UE.
If the Configured TAC Indication IE set to "true" is included for a Tracking Area contained in the Supported TA List IE in the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the AMF may take it into account to optimise NG-C signalling towards this NG-RAN node.
If the Global RAN Node ID IE is included in the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the AMF shall associate the TNLA to the NG-C interface instance using the Global RAN Node ID.
If the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message includes NG-RAN TNL Association to Remove List IE, and the Endpoint IP Address IE and the Port Number IE for both TNL endpoints of the TNL association(s) are included in the NG-RAN TNL Association to Remove List IE, the AMF shall, if supported, consider that the TNL association(s) indicated by both received TNL endpoints will be removed by the NG-RAN node. If the Endpoint IP Address IE, or the Endpoint IP Address IE and the Port Number IE for one or both of the TNL endpoints is included in the NG-RAN TNL Association to Remove List IE in RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the AMF shall, if supported, consider that the TNL association(s) indicated by the received endpoint IP address(es) will be removed by the NG-RAN node.
If the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message includes the RAN Node Name IE, the AMF may store it or update this IE value if already stored, and use it as a human readable name of the NG-RAN node. If the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message includes the Extended RAN Node Name IE, the AMF may store it or update this IE value if already stored, and use it as a human readable name of the NG-RAN node and shall ignore the RAN Node Name IE if also included.
If the NB-IoT Default Paging DRX IE is included in the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the AMF shall overwrite any previously stored NB-IoT default paging DRX value for the NG-RAN node.
If the RAT Information IE is included in the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the AMF shall handle this information as specified in TS 23.502.
If the NID IE within the NPN Support IE is included within a Broadcast PLMN Item IE in the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the AMF shall consider that the NG-RAN node supports the indicated S-NSSAI(s) for the corresponding tracking area code for the SNPN identified by the PLMN Identity IE and the NID IE.

If the AMF cannot accept the update, it shall respond with a RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE FAILURE message and appropriate cause value.
If the Time to Wait IE is included in the RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE FAILURE message, the NG-RAN node shall wait at least for the indicated time before reinitiating the RAN Configuration Update procedure towards the same AMF.

8.7.2.4  Abnormal Conditions

If the NG-RAN node, after initiating the RAN Configuration Update procedure, receives neither a RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE ACKOWLEDGE nor a RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE FAILURE message, the NG-RAN node may reinitiate a further RAN Configuration Update procedure towards the same AMF, provided that the content of the new RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message is identical to the content of the previously unacknowledged RAN CONFIGURATION UPDATE message.

8.7.3  AMF Configuration Update

8.7.3.1  General

The purpose of the AMF Configuration Update procedure is to update application level configuration data needed for the NG-RAN node and AMF to interoperate correctly on the NG-C interface. This procedure does not affect existing UE-related contexts, if any.

The AMF initiates the procedure by sending an AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message including the appropriate updated configuration data to the NG-RAN node. The NG-RAN node responds with an AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE ACKNOWLEDGE message to acknowledge that it successfully updated the configuration data. If an information element is not included in the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the NG-RAN node shall interpret that the corresponding configuration data is not changed and shall continue to operate the NG-C interface with the existing related configuration data.
If the PLMN Support List IE is included in the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the NG-RAN node shall overwrite the whole list of supported PLMN Identities and the corresponding list of AMF slices for each PLMN Identity and use the received values for further network slice selection and AMF selection.
If the AMF TNL Association to Add List IE is included in the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the NG-RAN node shall, if supported, use it to establish the TNL association(s) with the AMF. The NG-RAN node shall report to the AMF, in the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE ACKNOWLEDGE message, the successful establishment of the TNL association(s) with the AMF as follows:
  • A list of successfully established TNL associations shall be included in the AMF TNL Association Setup List IE;
  • A list of TNL associations that failed to be established shall be included in the AMF TNL Association Failed to Setup List IE.
If the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message includes AMF TNL Association to Remove List IE, and the Endpoint IP Address and the Port Number IE for both TNL endpoints of the TNL association(s) is included in the AMF TNL Association to Remove List IE, the NG-RAN node shall, if supported, initiate removal of the TNL association(s) indicated by both received TNL endpoints towards the AMF. If the Endpoint IP Address IE, or the Endpoint IP Address IE and the Port Number IE for one or both of the TNL endpoints is included in the AMF TNL Association to Remove List IE, the NG-RAN node shall, if supported, initiate removal of the TNL association(s) indicated by the received endpoint IP address(es).If the AMF Name IE is included in the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the NG-RAN node shall overwrite the previously stored AMF name and use it to identify the AMF.
If the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message includes the AMF Name IE, the NG-RAN node may store it or update this IE value if already stored, and use it as a human readable name of the AMF. If the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message includes the Extended AMF Name IE, the NG-RAN node may store it or update this IE value if already stored, and use it as a human readable name of the AMF and shall ignore the AMF Name IE if also included.
If the Served GUAMI List IE is included in the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the NG-RAN node shall overwrite the whole list of GUAMIs served by the AMF by the new list and use the received values for further AMF management and AMF selection as defined in TS 23.501.
If the Relative AMF Capacity IE is included in the AMF CONFIGURATION UPDATE message, the NG-RAN node may use it as defined in TS 23.501.

8.7.4  NG Reset

8.7.4.1  General

The purpose of the NG Reset procedure is to initialise or re-initialise the RAN, or part of RAN NGAP UE-related contexts, in the event of a failure in the 5GC or vice versa. This procedure does not affect the application level configuration data exchanged during, e.g., the NG Setup procedure. The procedure uses non-UE associated signalling.

In the event of a failure at the AMF which has resulted in the loss of some or all transaction reference information, an NG RESET message shall be sent to the NG-RAN node.
At reception of the NG RESET message the NG-RAN node shall release all allocated resources on NG and Uu related to the UE association(s) indicated explicitly or implicitly in the NG RESET message and remove the indicated UE contexts including NGAP ID.
After the NG-RAN node has released all assigned NG resources and the UE NGAP IDs for all indicated UE associations which can be used for new UE-associated logical NG-connections over the NG interface, the NG-RAN node shall respond with the NG RESET ACKNOWLEDGE message. The NG-RAN node does not need to wait for the release of radio resources to be completed before returning the NG RESET ACKNOWLEDGE message.
If the NG RESET message contains the UE-associated Logical NG-connection List IE, then:
  • The NG-RAN node shall use the AMF UE NGAP ID IE and/or the RAN UE NGAP ID IE to explicitly identify the UE association(s) to be reset.
  • The NG-RAN node shall include in the NG RESET ACKNOWLEDGE message, for each UE association to be reset, the UE-associated Logical NG-connection Item IE in the UE-associated Logical NG-connection List IE. The UE-associated Logical NG-connection Item IEs shall be in the same order as received in the NG RESET message and shall include also unknown UE-associated logical NG-connections. Empty UE-associated Logical NG-connection Item IEs, received in the NG RESET message, may be omitted in the NG RESET ACKNOWLEDGE message.
  • If the AMF UE NGAP ID IE is included in the UE-associated Logical NG-connection Item IE for a UE association, the NG-RAN node shall include the AMF UE NGAP ID IE in the corresponding UE-associated Logical NG-connection Item IE in the NG RESET ACKNOWLEDGE message.
  • If the RAN UE NGAP ID IE is included in the UE-associated Logical NG-connection Item IE for a UE association, the NG-RAN node shall include the RAN UE NGAP ID IE in the corresponding UE-associated Logical NG-connection Item IE in the NG RESET ACKNOWLEDGE message.
