If ISR is activated, the UE shall keep both the periodic tracking area update ti

mer (timer T3412) and the periodic routeing area update timer (timer T3312).
The two separate timers run in the UE for updating MME and SGSN independently.
If the periodic tracking area update timer expires and the UE cannot initiate th
e tracking area updating procedure, as it is in state EMM-REGISTERED.NO-CELL-AVA
ILABLE, the UE shall start the E-UTRAN deactivate ISR timer T3423.
The UE shall initiate the tracking area updating procedure and stop the timer T3
423 when it enters state EMM-REGISTERED.NORMAL-SERVICE before timer T3423 expire
s.
After expiry of timer T3423 the UE shall set its TIN to "P-TMSI".
If the E-UTRAN Deactivate ISR timer T3423 expires the UE shall memorize that it
has to initiate a tracking area updating procedure when it returns to state EMM-
REGISTERED.NORMAL-SERVICE.
If the UE is not attached for emergency bearer services, the mobile reachable ti
mer shall be longer than T3412.In this
case, by default, the mobile reachable timer is 4 minutes greater than T3412. If
ISR is not activated, the network
behaviour upon expiry of the mobile reachable timer is network dependent, but ty
pically the network stops sending
paging messages to the UE on the first expiry, and may take other appropriate ac
tions.
Upon expiry of the mobile reachable timer the network shall start the implicit d
etach timer. The value of the implicit
detach timer is network dependent. If ISR is activated, the default value of the
implicit detach timer is 4 minutes greater
than T3423. If the implicit detach timer expires before the UE contacts the netw
ork, the network shall implicitly detach
the UE.The implicit detach timer shall be stopped when a NAS signalling connecti
on is established for the UE.
If due to regional subscription restrictions or access restrictions the UE is no
t allowed to access the TA, but it has a
PDN connection for emergency bearer services established, the MME may accept the
TRACKING AREA UPDATE
REQUEST message and deactivate all non-emergency EPS bearer contexts by initiati
ng an EPS bearer context
deactivation procedure when the TAU is initiated in EMM-CONNECTED mode. When the
TAU is initiated in EMMIDLE
mode, the MME locally deactivates all non-emergency EPS bearer contexts and info
rms the UE via the EPS
bearer context status IE in the TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT message. The MME sha
ll not deactivate the
emergency EPS bearer contexts. The network shall consider the UE to be attached
for emergency bearer services only
and shall indicate in the EPS update result IE in the TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEP
T message that ISR is not
activated.
If the UE had initiated the tracking area updating proceduredue to a change in U
E network capability or change in DRX
parameters or both, the UE shall locally deactivate ISR by setting TIN value to
"GUTI".
The network may also indicate in the EPS update result IE in the TRACKING AREA U
PDATE ACCEPT message that
ISR is active. If the UE is attached for emergency bearer services, the network
shall indicate in the EPS update result IE in the TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT me
ssage that ISR is not activated. If the TRACKING AREA UPDATE ACCEPT message cont
ains:
i) no indication that ISR is activated, the UE shall set the TIN to "GUTI";
ii) an indication that ISR is activated, the UE shall regard a previously assign
ed P-TMSI and RAI as valid and registered with the network. If the TIN currently
indicates "P-TMSI", the UE shall set the TIN to "RAT-related TMSI".
The UE shall deactivate ISR by setting the TIN to "GUTI" if the UE is required t
o perform routing area updating for IMS voice termination as specified in 3GPP T
S 24.008 [13], annex P.5.
6.1.5 Coordination between ESM and EMM for supporting ISR
This subclause applies to a UE with its TIN set as "RAT-related TMSI" for which
ISR is activated.
The UE shall change its TIN to "GUTI" to deactivate ISR:
- upon modification of any EPS bearer context which was activated before the ISR
is activated in the UE;
- at the time when the UE changes from S1 mode to A/Gb mode or Iu mode, if any E
PS bearer context activated
after the ISR was activated in the UE exists; or
- upon deactivation of the last non-emergency EPS bearer context in the UE, if t
he UE has only a PDN connection
for emergency bearer services remaining.
