If the UE finds a “better” cell, UE reselects it and camps on it. After camping on, UE monitors the system information to get the quality threshold and performs measurements for the cell reselection evaluation procedure. The UE evaluates whether or not a better cell exists.
The E-UTRAN controls the quality measurements for LTE cells to be reselected. The UE measurements are triggered according to the serving cell quality level and the threshold indicated in the system information. The measurement must satisfy different requirements for intra frequency, inter frequency or inter RAT (Radio Access Technology) quality estimations.
Cell selection is performed in RRC idle mode. The camping on a cell in idle mode enables the UE to receive information from the LTE network. UE stays in idle mode until it transmits a request to establish an RRC connection. After receiving the RRC connection set up, the mode changes into connected mode.
I hope it helps :)
