GSM phone UMTS 3G phone IP Multimedia SAE GSM phase 2 Mandatory SIM No USIM support Optional GPRS (R97 ->) WCDMA or EDGE Mandatory SIM USIM support is: Mandatory for WCDMA Optional for GSM/EDGE IMS Mandatory USIM No SIM specs Optional support of legacy SIM ISIM support mandatory for IMS ME WLAN (Rel-6) SAE USIM mandatory for SAE access 3G AKA security SIM access not allowed any more No need to update legacy USIM IMC as alternative to ISIM for non3GPP access 4

    • System Architecture Evolution (SAE) • LTE = E-UTRAN = evolved radio network – Megabit class data rates – Short delays – Short transition from idle to active • SAE = System Architecture evolution – Evolved IP oriented multi access architecture • • • • • • E-UTRAN integrates only to SAE, A/Gb or Iu not possible Strongly IP based PS only network SAE covers both 3GPP and non-3GPP access technologies Seamless roaming between E-UTRAN, 2G and 3G (tight interworking) Loose interworking with non-3GPP accesses Currently work is progressing on GTP for intra-3GPP mobility and IETF based mobility for non-3GPP mobility – The main Architecture specifications 23.401 and 23.402 frozen in June 2008 – Protocol work is ongoing with the goal to freeze it in December 2008 6
    • SAE/LTE Deployment • Deployments are expected to start with overlapping cellular coverage – E-UTRAN overlapping with legacy 3GPP GERAN / UTRAN coverage – E-UTRAN overlapping with legacy 3GPP2 coverage – Multi-mode networks and terminals • E-UTRAN is a packet-only radio with no CS capacity • Initially E-UTRAN is foreseen as “islands” in the sea of legacy cellular access – – – – Mobility between E-UTRAN and legacy access is required Mobility between PS and CS domains is required Multi-mode terminals expect to use PS coverage where available Desire to keep the connectivity and services 7
    • IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) • • PS domain IP Multimedia service platform Based on open IETF standards – End to end IP (SIP) – Multi access Internet • GPRS, I-WLAN, fixed xDSL, Packet Cable defined • More access technologies to follow... Find & route to destination PSTN IP Multimedi a Core Circuitswitched network ( 2G or 3G ) IP connectivity User data ( GPRS, 3G,...) Any IP connectivity (3G, WLAN,...) End-to-End IP services 8
    • Common IMS • 3GPP members, 3GPP2, WiMAX forum, ETSI TISPAN and CableLabs contribute to 3GPP common IMS specifications – Different requirements are supported in common implementation • All IMS specifications are harmonized to 3GPP specifications – Common parts are defined in 3GPP specifications only • Core IMS entities (CSCFs, AS, UE IMS client,...) + agreed common functions – Other organisations either reference or re-use 3GPP specification as it stands – Any changes or additions in the Common IMS area are made in 3GPP • All 3GPP members can contribute on their favourite work items • Ongoing work initiated by 3GPP members, CableLabs, 3GPP2 and ETSI TISPAN – The scope and coverage of Common IMS have been agreed by the SDOs • Common version of IMS specifications in Rel-8 – Business or architecture specific additions to 3GPP Common IMS are possible outside the agreed Common IMS area 9
    • Multi-mode, Service continuity • Call control protocols – E-UTRAN is a PS only radio, speech and other services are IMS based – PS domain IMS uses SIP protocol for call control (3GPP TS 24.229) – CS domain uses Call Control defined in 3GPP TS 24.008 • Voice Call Continuity – Domain transfer of ongoing call – Typically from E-UTRAN to 2G or 3G access • CS fallback – Paging the mobile in E-UTRAN to start CS service in 2G or 3G access – Not an E-UTRAN service, but fallback to existing service via 2G/3G • IMS service continuity – IMS service between E-UTRAN and other PS only, such as WLAN • IMS Centralized Service Control (ICS) – Common telephony services between CS and PS domain 10
    • Multi-mode, IMS registration in Rel-7 • • When S-CSCF detects that the same UE registers again, it considers this as an update and overwrites existing registration In some cases it may not be possible to de-register when changing from one access technology to another – UE might lose radio coverage before being able to de-register • S-CSCF detects that the registration is from the same UE based on the same privateID, which is practically a device-ID E (privateID-A) S-CSCF REGISTER 1 (privateID-A, IPaddress: registered with UE oss of radio REGISTER 2 (privateID-A, IPaddress: a.b.c.d) UE registered ONLY wit a.b.c.d – REGISTER 1 got overwritten with REGISTE 11
    • Multi-mode, IMS Multiple registration, Rel-8 • • • A UE is able to register the same public user identity with multiple IP addresses at the same time Used e.g. for IMS Service Continuity (e.g. handing over from I-WLAN to GPRS) No gap in reachability of the mobile HSS GPRS IP: P-CSCF 1 S-CSCF I-WLAN IP: a.b.c.d P-CSCF 2 user1 / / UE-A user1 / a.b.c.d / UE- UE-A 12
    • Multi-mode, Single Radio Voice Call Continuity Transfer from E-UTRAN to GERAN with active call (not all entities shown) HO command MME E-UTRAN IMS HO required measurements relocation request relocation response session transfer PLMN serving remote user MSC server prepare HO HO complete 2G or 3G MSC 13
    • Multi-mode, CS fallback Directing the UE from E-UTRAN to 2G/3G for CS service MME E-UTRAN paging SETUP paging PLMN serving remote user call setup SETUP paging resp. 2G or 3G MSC 14
    • Multi-mode, Network selection • Network selection comprises two parts – Network operator selection (the goal, based on commercial agreement) • Home operator determines which visited operators are preferred – Access technology selection (the means, based on technical criteria) • Serving visited operator determines access technology, frequency band and cell • • • • Multi-mode phones supporting many access technologies are a new challenge Network selection within each technology is defined for 3GPP and non-3GPP accesses The combination of multiple technologies is undefined Two approaches are foreseen in Rel-8 – 3GPP network selection procedures are extended to cover any non-3GPP system that supports ITU-T defined concepts of MCC and MNC – For others the ANDSF can (optionally) download network selection policy • Access technology preference, policy for changing access technology, etc. • • • MCC = Mobile Country Code MNC = Mobile Network Code ANDSF = Access Network Discovery and Selection Function 15
    • Multi-mode network selection, Outbound roaming example • • HPLMN is not available Prioritized VPLMNs are listed with no associated RAT in PLMN selector with access technology: – – – • VPLMN5 is not available VPLMN1 is available VPLMN2 is available VPLMN2 is selected via 2G, 3G or E-UTRAN – • HPLMN has not configured RAT priority for this VPLMN – VPLMN1 CDMA VPLMN5 VPLMN2 VPLMN1 VPLMN1 USIM configured RAT preference possible After PLMN selection normal idle mode is resumed – PLMN Selector (USIM): Cell & RAT may change within the selected PLMN Background scan for higher priority network HPLMN VPLMN1 E-UTRAN ? VPLMN2 UTRAN VPLMN2 GERAN VPLMN2 E-UTRAN RAT = Radio Access Technology, PLMN = Public Land Mobile Network VPLMN 2 16
