[Conditional] SMF to AMF: Nsmf_PDUSession_UpdateSMContext Response (N2 SM information (PDU Session ID, QFI(s), QoS profile(s), CN N3 Tunnel Info, S-NSSAI, User Plane Security Enforcement, UE Integrity Protection Maximum Data Rate), N1 SM Container, Cause) to the AMF. If the UPF that connects to RAN is the UPF (PSA), the CN N3 Tunnel Info is the UL Tunnel Info of the UPF (PSA). If the UPF that connects to RAN is the new intermediate UPF, the CN N3 Tunnel Info is the UL Tunnel Info of the intermediate UPF.
The SMF shall send N1 SM Container and/or N2 SM Information to the AMF when applicable. (e.g. when the SMF was notified from the AMF that the access type of the PDU Session can be changed in step 4).
For a PDU Session that the SMF has determined to accept the activation of UP connection in step 5a or 5b, the SMF generates only N2 SM information and sends Nsmf_PDUSession_UpdateSMContext Response to the AMF to establish the User Plane(s). The N2 SM information contains information that the AMF shall provide to the NG-RAN. If the SMF decided to change the PSA UPF for the SSC mode 3 PDU Session, the SMF triggers the change of SSC mode 3 PDU Session anchor as an independent procedure described in clause 126.96.36.199 or clause 188.8.131.52 after accepting the activation of UP of the PDU Session.
The SMF can reject the activation of UP of the PDU Session by including a cause in the Nsmf_PDUSession_UpdateSMContext Response. Following are some of the cases:
If the PDU Session corresponds to a LADN and the UE is outside the area of availability of the LADN as described in step 5b;
If the AMF notified the SMF that the UE is reachable only for regulatory prioritized service, and the PDU Session to be activated is not for a regulatory prioritized service; or
If the SMF decided to change the PSA UPF for the requested PDU Session as described in step 5b. In this case, after sending Nsmf_PDUSession_UpdateSMContext Response, the SMF triggers another procedure to instruct UE to re-establish the PDU Session as described in clause 184.108.40.206 for SSC mode 2.
If the SMF received negative response in Step 6b due to UPF resource unavailability.
If the PDU Session has been assigned any EPS bearer ID, the SMF also includes the mapping between EPS bearer ID(s) and QFI(s) into the N2 SM information to be sent to the NG-RAN.
The User Plane Security Enforcement information is determined by the SMF upon PDU session establishment as described in clause 5.10.3 of TS 23.501 . If the User Plane Security Enforcement information indicates that Integrity Protection is "Preferred" or "Required", the SMF also includes the UE Integrity Protection Maximum Data Rate.
