LTE: MAC TB1 is of length more than 56-bits for contention resolution?

Mostly, the MAC control header for contention resolution is of 56-bits(1-byte for DL contention resolution ID+6-bytes for subPdu len of UE-contention resolution id). Please find the below details for your reference.


Source = \Protocol\3GPP\LTE\MAC\Entity Id 17
Destination = \Protocol\3GPP\LTE\PHY\Entity Id 2
Transport Blocks
Transport Block 1 (Codeword 0) Len = 7 =
MAC subheader 1, type: MCE (DL CONTENTION RESOLUTION ID), sub-header length: 1 =
LCID = 28 (DL CONTENTION RESOLUTION ID)
E = 0
R = 0
SubPdu Len = 6
UE Contention Resolution ID = 5E,0E,95,0C,02,C6


Secondly, when does this header if of more than 56-bits as below. 56-bits for contention resolution and 16-bits for padding. Why does the TB1 size is changed?


Source = \Protocol\3GPP\LTE\MAC\Entity Id 17
Destination = \Protocol\3GPP\LTE\PHY\Entity Id 2
Transport Blocks
Transport Block 1 (Codeword 0) Len = 15 =
MAC subheader 1, type: MCE (DL CONTENTION RESOLUTION ID), sub-header length: 1 =
LCID = 28 (DL CONTENTION RESOLUTION ID)
E = 1
R = 0
SubPdu Len = 6
UE Contention Resolution ID = 40,10,00,00,00,16
MAC subheader 2, type: Padding, sub-header length: 1 =
LCID = 31
E = 0
R = 0

Is There any cases that RLC posts the buffer more than grant given by MAC layer? If so, how Mac treats that buffer? And what are futher steps to process that buffer?

In case of UE specific data transmission MAC layer allocates radio resources on dynamic basis. When we say dynamic resource allocation it means in each TTI (subframe) different amount of data is sent over the over considering various factor QCI, amount of data buffered at RLC and available radio resource.
What about the MBMS data transmission. MBSFN subrames are fixed in radio frame for the MBMS data transmission. Is there really need of any dynamic resources allocation for the MBMS data comes from RLC layer or it is persistent since required modulation and coding other parameters are already known at the time of bearer establishment and these parameters does not change throughout the data transmission of MBMS data.
