The RRC CONNECTION RELEASE procedure can be used for MME load balancing. If an MME feels overloaded, it can simply move the calls to other MME in the MME pool. The source MME releases the S1 connections of the UE towards the eNodeB asking the UE to perform a “load balancing TAU”. Then the eNodeB sends RRC CONNECTION RELEASE message to the UE with cause ‘load balancing TAU required'. After receiving this message, the UE initiates Tracking Area Updating procedure which is redirected to another MME

During attach procedure, UE sends "Attach Request" along with "RRC Connection Setup Complete", eNodeB sends "Attach Accept" along with "RRC Connection Reconfiguration then why UE does not send "Attach Complete" along with "RRC Connection Reconfiguration Complete" message ? What could be the reason for defining the messages so ?
