Five Types of RNTI exist:

1.Serving RNC RNTI (S-RNTI)
3.Cell RNTI (C-RNTI)

C-RNTI (Cell RNTI) is valid/unique in a cell and is used on DTCH and DCCH in uplink, and may be used on DCCH in downlink (when mapped onto common transport channels like FACH). C-RNTI is given to UE by controlling RNC upon accessing (new) cell.
U-RNTI is used only by network i.e. in downlink direction only. U-RNTI may be used in DCCH mapped over common transport channel (like FACH).

RA-RNTI -- Random access response-- Value: 0001 - 003C
Temporary C-RNTI R8 Random access contention resolution -- Value: 003D - FFF3
C-RNTI--One UL or DL transmission
SPS C-RNTI--Several UL or DL transmissions
TPC-PUCCH-RNTI--Embedded PUCCH TPC command
TPC-PUSCH-RNTI--Embedded PUSCH TPC command
M-RNTI--MBMS change notification -- Value: FFFD
P-RNTI--Paging message -- Value: FFFE

Considering a local customer and a roaming customer in cellular network-GSM/UMTS/LTE, how does the throughput vary between the two SIMs when they are on same network? Is there a priority for local SIM vs. Roaming SIM? If yes, how is priority determined/decided?

I formula/ equations that will enable me calculate the capacity/throughput of GSM base station, UMTS base station and LTE eNodeB.
If there are simulation software, can someone please kindly tell me how to get them and use them.

Can someone explain the Interworking of VoLTE with UMTS/GSM? Say UE is Attached to LTE and IMS Registered to Use VoLTE Services. And Now It wants to Initiate a Voice Call to the User who is in 3G/2G Network. How the Call will be established from signalling point of view?
