8.3  Management ProceduresWord‑p. 22

8.3.1  Error Indication

8.3.1.1  General

The Error Indication procedure is initiated by a node to report detected errors in one incoming message, provided they cannot be reported by an appropriate failure message.

8.3.1.2  Successful Operation

Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.3.1.2-1: Error Indication procedure, LMF originated, successful operation
Up
Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.3.1.2-2: Error Indication procedure, NG-RAN node originated, successful operation
Up
When the conditions defined in clause 10 are fulfilled, the Error Indication procedure is initiated by an ERROR INDICATION message sent from the receiving node.
The ERROR INDICATION message shall contain at least either the Cause IE or the Criticality Diagnostics IE.

8.3.1.3  Abnormal Conditions

Not applicable.

8.4  Assistance Information Transfer Procedures

8.4.1  Assistance Information Control

8.4.1.1  General

The purpose of the Assistance Information Control procedure is to allow the LMF to signal positioning assistance information to the NG-RAN Node for assistance information broadcasting.

8.4.1.2  Successful OperationWord‑p. 23
Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.4.1.2-1: Assistance Information Control procedure
Up
The LMF initiates the procedure by sending an ASSISTANCE INFORMATION CONTROL message.
If the Assistance Information IE is included in the ASSISTANCE INFORMATION CONTROL message, the NG-RAN Node shall replace any previously stored assistance information and use the received information to configure assistance information broadcasting.
If the Broadcast Priority IE is included in the Assistance Information IE, the NG-RAN Node may take it into account when configuring broadcasting for the relevant information. Assistance information having the same Broadcast Priority value should receive the same treatment (i.e. broadcast by the NG-RAN Node or not broadcast).
If the Broadcast IE is included in the ASSISTANCE INFORMATION CONTROL message and set to "start", the NG-RAN Node may start broadcasting the assistance information. If the Broadcast IE is included in the ASSISTANCE INFORMATION CONTROL message and set to "stop", the NG-RAN Node may stop broadcasting the assistance information.
If the Positioning Broadcast Cells IE is included in the ASSISTANCE INFORMATION CONTROL message, the NG-RAN shall, if supported, consider that the received assistance information is applicable to the cells in this IE.
Up

8.4.1.3  Abnormal Conditions

If the Broadcast IE is included in the ASSISTANCE INFORMATION CONTROL message and set to "start", and no assistance information is available, the NG-RAN Node shall consider the procedure as failed.
If neither the Assistance Information IE nor the Broadcast IE are included in the ASSISTANCE INFORMATION CONTROL message, the NG-RAN Node shall consider the procedure as failed.

8.4.2  Assistance Information Feedback

8.4.2.1  General

The purpose of the Assistance Information Feedback procedure is to allow the NG-RAN Node to give feedback to the LMF on assistance information broadcasting.

8.4.2.2  Successful Operation

Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.4.2.2-1: Assistance Information Feedback procedure
Up
If the Assistance Information Failure List IE is included in the ASSISTANCE INFORMATION FEEDBACK message, the LMF shall consider that assistance information broadcasting could not be configured for the relevant information.
If the Positioning Broadcast Cells IE is included in the ASSISTANCE INFORMATION FEEDBACK message, the LMF shall, if supported, consider that the feedback provided is applicable to the cells in this IE.

8.4.2.3  Abnormal ConditionsWord‑p. 24
Void.

8.5  Measurement Information Transfer

8.5.1  Measurement

8.5.1.1  General

The Measurement procedure allows the LMF to request one or more TRPs in the NG-RAN node to perform and report positioning measurements.

8.5.1.2  Successful Operation

Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.5.1.2-1: Measurement procedure. Successful operation.
Up
The LMF initiates the procedure by sending a MEASUREMENT REQUEST message to the NG-RAN node, indicating in the TRP Measurement Request List IE the TRP(s) from which measurements are requested. The NG-RAN node shall use the included information to configure positioning measurements by the indicated TRP(s). If at least one of the requested measurements has been successful for at least one of the TRPs, the NG-RAN node shall reply with a MEASUREMENT RESPONSE message.
If the Report Characteristics IE is set to "OnDemand", the NG-RAN node shall return the corresponding measurement results in the MEASUREMENT RESPONSE message, and the LMF shall consider that this reporting has been terminated by the NG-RAN node. If the Report Characteristics IE is set to "Periodic", the NG-RAN node shall initiate the corresponding measurements, and it shall reply with the MEASUREMENT RESPONSE message without including any measurement results in the message. The NG-RAN node shall then periodically initiate the Measurement Report procedure for the corresponding measurements, with the requested reporting periodicity.
If the Measurement Beam Information Request IE is included in the MEASUREMENT REQUEST message, the NG-RAN node shall include the Measurement Beam Information IE in the Measurement Result IE of the MEASUREMENT RESPONSE message.
Up

8.5.1.3  Unsuccessful OperationWord‑p. 25
Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.5.1.3-1: Measurement procedure. Unsuccessful operation.
Up
If the NG-RAN node cannot configure any of the requested measurements for any of the TRPs in the TRP Measurement Request List IE of the MEASUREMENT REQUEST message, it shall respond with a MEASUREMENT FAILURE message with an appropriate cause value.

8.5.1.4  Abnormal Conditions

Not applicable.

8.5.2  Measurement Report

8.5.2.1  General

The Measurement Report procedure allows the NG-RAN node to report positioning measurements to the LMF.

8.5.2.2  Successful Operation

Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.5.2.2-1: Measurement Report procedure. Successful operation.
Up
The NG-RAN node initiates the procedure by sending a MEASUREMENT REPORT message to the LMF. The MEASUREMENT REPORT message contains the measurement results according to the associated measurement configuration.

8.5.3  Measurement Update

8.5.3.1  General

The Measurement Update Procedure allows the LMF to notify the NG-RAN node of a change in a previously configured measurement.

8.5.3.2  Successful OperationWord‑p. 26
Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.5.3.2-1: Measurement Update: Successful Operation.
Up
The LMF initiates the procedure by sending a MEASUREMENT UPDATE message. Upon receiving the message, the NG-RAN node shall overwrite the previously received measurement configuration.

8.5.3.3  Unsuccessful Operation

Not applicable.

8.5.3.4  Abnormal Conditions

If the NG-RAN node cannot identify the previously requested measurement to be modified, it shall consider the procedure as failed and initiate local error handling.

8.5.4  Measurement Abort

8.5.4.1  General

The purpose of the Measurement Abort Procedure is to enable the LMF to abort an on-going measurement.

8.5.4.2  Successful Operation

Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.5.4.2-1: Measurement Abort Procedure: Successful Operation.
Up
The LMF initiates the procedure by sending a MEASUREMENT ABORT message.
Upon receiving this message, the NG-RAN node shall terminate the on-going measurement identified by the LMF Measurement ID IE and may release any resources previously allocated for the same measurement.

8.5.4.3  Unsuccessful Operation

Not applicable.

8.5.4.4  Abnormal Conditions

If the NG-RAN node cannot identify the previously requested measurement to be aborted, it shall ignore the MEASUREMENT ABORT message.

8.5.5  Measurement Failure IndicationWord‑p. 27

8.5.5.1  General

The Measurement Failure Indication procedure allows the NG-RAN node to notify the LMF that the measurements previously requested with the Measurement procedure can no longer be reported.

8.5.5.2  Successful Operation

Reproduction of 3GPP TS 38.455, Figure 8.5.5.2-1: Measurement Report procedure. Successful operation.
Up
Upon reception of the MEASUREMENT FAILURE INDICATION message, the LMF shall consider that the indicated measurements have been terminated by the NG-RAN node.
