What is the use of si-RequestForHO-r9 with autonomous gaps when Reporting config is set as periodical->reportCGI?

+5 votes

If UE is able to detect the ECGI of neighbor using the DRX, what is the purpose of "si-RequestForHO-r9" with autonomous gaps. In which scenario this IE is useful.

The main reason for adding this parameter in release 9 was to avoid/neglect the signalling of the serving cell.

I mean to say, before it was a headache of serving cell to configure the time periods in which a UE can decode the CGI or system information of the target cell.

Autonomous gaps: These are GAP periods where UE will stop the Tx/Rx of the serving cell for a moment to perform measurements or to read MIB/SIB of the target cell.

if UE supports this autonomous gaps and network is also aware of that so it has to just set it to true or false.. si-RequestForHO is set to FALSE/true otherwise UE will use IDLE periods.

Please note that the maximum length of autonomous gap is:

0.15 seconds for an E-UTRA CSG cell
2 seconds for an UTRAN FDD CSG cell

The cell for which the UE is being requested to obtain the CGI will be indicated by cellForWhichToReportCGI in the measurement object of the concerned target RAT.

Now the last query in which scenario it would be useful:
The reports given before was not sufficient for the Scell to make the handover decision so it can ask from the UE for the additional information. No need to configure the DRX time duration again. Just make this si-RequestForHO true and UE will give you the report.

IE si-RequestForHO-r9 was introduced in Rel-9 to provide autonomous gap, I am facing the problem at the time of ASN decoding of this particular IE but ASN encoding is success.

Please anyone suggest me where I am failing....

I read the answer given by Hiteshwar on si-RequestForHO-r9 with autonomous gaps

One question arose in my mind. You said additional information. May i know which is that info for which you are directing to?

In TS 23.221 7.2a, there is a note describe that "Whether to perform combined EPS/IMSI attach/combined TA/LA Update or EPS attach/TAU for the case of "IMS PS Voice preferred" is to be evaluated in each release of the specifications.", but I can not find any information about that.
