8.3.4.2  Successful Operation

Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.423, Figure 8.3.4.2-1: S-NG-RAN node initiated S-NG-RAN node Modification, successful operation.
Up
The S-NG-RAN node initiates the procedure by sending the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message to the M-NG-RAN node.
When the S-NG-RAN node sends the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message, it shall start the timer TXnDCoverall.
The S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message may contain
  • the S-NG-RAN node to M-NG-RAN node Container IE.
  • PDU session resources to be modified within the PDU Session Resources To Be Modified Item IE;
  • PDU session resources to be released within the PDU Session Resources To Be Released Item IE;
  • the PDCP Change Indication IE;
  • the Spare DRB IDs IE;
  • the Required Number of DRB IDs IE;
  • the QoS Flow Mapping Indication IE;
  • the MR-DC Resource Coordination Information IE.
If the M-NG-RAN node receives a S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message containing the PDCP Change Indication IE, the M-NG-RAN node shall act as specified in TS 37.340.
If the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message contains the MR-DC Resource Coordination Information IE, the M-NG-RAN node may use it for the purpose of resource coordination with the S-NG-RAN node. The M-NG-RAN node shall consider the value of the received UL Coordination Information IE valid until reception of a new update of the IE for the same UE. The M-NG-RAN node shall consider the value of the received DL Coordination Information IE valid until reception of a new update of the IE for the same UE. If the E-UTRA Coordination Assistance Information IE or the NR Coordination Assistance Information IE is contained in the MR-DC Resource Coordination Information IE, the M-NG-RAN node shall, if supported, use the information to determine further coordination of resource utilisation between the M-NG-RAN node and the S-NG-RAN node.
If the M-NG-RAN node receives an S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message containing the Spare DRB IDs IE, the M-NG-RAN node may take those into consideration to be used for MN-terminated bearers.
If the M-NG-RAN node receives an S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message containing the Required Number of DRB IDs IE, the M-NG-RAN node shall provide new DRB IDs to be used by the S-NG-RAN node for SN-terminated bearers , if such DRB IDs are available, in the Additional DRB IDs IE included in the S-NODE MODIFICATION CONFIRM message.
If the M-NG-RAN node is able to perform the modifications requested by the S-NG-RAN node, the M-NG-RAN node shall send the S-NODE MODIFICATION CONFIRM message to the S-NG-RAN node. The S-NODE MODIFICATION CONFIRM message may contain the M-NG-RAN node to S-NG-RAN node Container IE.
If the PDCP Duplication Configuration IE in the PDU Session Resource Modification Required Info - SN terminated IE is contained in the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message and set to "configured", the M-NG-RAN node shall, if supported, add the RLC entity of secondary path and the RLC entity of all additional path(s) for the indicated DRB. And if the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message contains the Duplication Activation IE, the M-NG-RAN node shall, if supported, store this information and use it for the purpose of PDCP duplication.
If the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message contains the RLC Duplication Information IE, the S-NG-RAN node shall, if supported, store this information and use it for the purpose of PDCP duplication for the indicated DRB with more than two RLC entities.
If the PDCP Duplication Configuration IE in the PDU Session Resource Modification Required Info - SN terminated IE is contained in the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message and set to "de-configured", the M-NG-RAN node shall, if supported, delete the RLC entity of secondary path and the RLC entity of all additional path(s) for the indicated DRB.
The S-NG-RAN node may include for each DRB in the DRBs To Be Modified List IE in the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message the RLC Status IE to indicate that RLC has been reestablished at the S-NG-RAN node and the M-NG-RAN node may trigger PDCP data recovery.
If the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message contains the QoS flows To Be Released List within the PDU Session Resource Modification Info - SN terminated IE, the S-NG-RAN node may also propose to apply forwarding of UL data for which in-order delivery is requested by including the UL Forwarding Proposal IE in the Data Forwarding and Offloading Info from source NG-RAN node IE within the PDU Session Resource Modification Required Info - SN terminated IE of the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message. The M-NG-RAN node may include the PDU Session Level UL Data Forwarding UP TNL Information IE in the Data Forwarding Info from target NG-RAN node IE within the PDU Session Resource Modification Confirm Info - SN terminated IE of the S-NODE MODIFICATION CONFIRM message to indicate that it accepts the proposed forwarding.
Upon reception of the S-NODE MODIFICATION CONFIRM message the S-NG-RAN node shall stop the timer TXnDCoverall.
If the S-NODE MODIFICATION CONFIRM message contains the MR-DC Resource Coordination Information IE, the S-NG-RAN node should forward it to lower layers and it may use it for the purpose of resource coordination with the M-NG-RAN node. The S-NG-RAN node shall consider the value of the received UL Coordination Information IE valid until reception of a new update of the IE for the same UE. The S-NG-RAN node shall consider the value of the received DL Coordination Information IE valid until reception of a new update of the IE for the same UE. If the E-UTRA Coordination Assistance Information IE or the NR Coordination Assistance Information IE is contained in the MR-DC Resource Coordination Information IE, the S-NG-RAN node shall, if supported, use the information to determine further coordination of resource utilisation between the S-NG-RAN node and the M-NG-RAN node.
If the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message contains a PDU session resource to be released which is configured with the SCG bearer option within the PDU sessions to be released List - SN terminated IE, the S-NG-RAN node shall include the RLC Mode IE within the DRBs To Be Released List IE in the PDU Session to be released List - SN terminated IE in the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message. The RLC Mode IE indicates the RLC mode used in the S-NG-RAN node for the DRB.
If the Location Information at S-NODE IE is included in the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED, the M-NG-RAN node shall store the included information so that it may be transferred towards the AMF.
If the QoS Flows Mapped To DRB List IE is included in the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message for a DRB to be modified, the M-NG-RAN node shall replace any existing QoS flow mapping for that DRB with the one received.
If the S-NG-RAN node applied a full configuration or delta configuration, e.g., as part of mobility procedure involving a change of DU, the S-NG-RAN node shall inform the M-NG-RAN node by including the RRC config indication IE in the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUIRED message.
If the S-NODE MODIFICATION CONFIRM message includes the DRB IDs taken into use IE, the S-NG-RAN node shall, if applicable, act as specified in TS 37.340
Interaction with the M-NG-RAN node initiated S-NG-RAN node Modification Preparation procedure:
If applicable, as specified in TS 37.340, the S-NG-RAN node may receive, after having initiated the S-NG-RAN node initiated S-NG-RAN node Modification procedure, the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUEST message including the measGapConfig IE as defined in TS 38.331 within the M-NG-RAN node to S-NG-RAN node Container IE.
If applicable, the S-NG-RAN node may receive, after having initiated the S-NG-RAN node initiated S-NG-RAN node Modification procedure, the S-NODE MODIFICATION REQUEST message including the SN triggered IE.
