S Timer Function when Start/Stop/at expiry

T311

allocation assignment")

T312 >>Timer expires when criteria for physical channel establishment failure is fulfilled

>>Timer Starts when UE detects consecutive N313 "out of sync" indication from Layer-1(PHY
>> Stops when UE detects consecutive N315 "in sync" indication from Layer-1(PHY)
T313 >> Timer expires when the criteria for Radio Link failure is fulfilled

>>Starts after the criteria for radio link failure have been fulfilled, and if radio bearers associat
exists.
>>Stops when the cell update procedure completes
T314 >>REFER 8.3.1.13 in 3GPP TS 25.331 Specification

>>Starts after the criteria for radio link failure have been fulfilled, and if radio bearers associat
exists.
>> Stops when the cell update procedure completes
T315 >> REFER 8.3.1.14 in 3GPP TS 25.331 Specification

>>Starts when UE detects "out of service area" in the URA_PCH or CELL_PCH state
>>Stops when UE detects "in service area"
>>At expiry,initiates cell update procedure if "in service area" is detected, OTHERWISE starts
T316 transit to CELL_FACH state and initiate cell update procedure when the UE detects "in servic

>> Starts when timer T316 expires OR when in CELL_FACH state, UE detects "out of service
>> Stops when UE detects "in service area"
T317 >> At Expiry, transits to IDLE MODE

V300,V302,V304,V308 abd V310 are counters used in UE.


N300,N302,N304,N308,N310,N312,N313 and N315 are constants used in UE.
For information refer 3GPP TS 25.331 Specification .
UE Timers & Constants In RRC Ideal Mode & Connected Mode

UE Timer and Constant:

The following settings can only be changed when call status is Idle .

T300 RRC Conn Req Retransmit Timer


This setting determines how long the UE waits for the RRC Connection Setup after sending an
RRC Connection Setup Request.
T300 can be set to one of the following values: 400, 600, 800, 1000, 1200, 1400, 1600, 1800,
2000, 3000, 4000, 6000, 8000 ms.

N300 RRC Conn Req Max Retransmits


This setting specifies the maximum number of retransmissions of the RRC Connection Request
message.
N300 can be set to any integer value from 0 to 7.

T312 Link Establishment Timer (Idle)


This setting determines how long the UE waits for an N312 "in-sync" indication from layer 1
when establishing a dedicated channel and the connection status is Idle. T312 can be set to any
integer value from 1 to 15.

T312 Link Establishment Timer (Connected)


This setting determines how long the UE waits for an N312 "in-sync" indication from layer 1
when establishing a dedicated channel in connected status. The value 0 is not used.

N312 Link Establishment In-Sync Count (Idle)


This setting specifies the number of " in-syncs" required when establishing a dedicated channel
when the connection status is Idle.
N312 can be set to one of the following values: 1, 2, 4, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 400, 600, 800, 1000.

N312 Link Establishment In-Sync Count (Conn.)


This setting specifies the number of " in-syncs" required when establishing a dedicated channel
in connected status.
N312 can be set to one of the following values: 1, 2, 4, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 400, 600, 800, 1000.

T313 Out-of-Sync Reception Timer


3GPP TS 25.331 8.5.6 states that after receiving N313 consecutive "out of sync" indications from
layer, the UE shall start the T313 timer. Upon receiving N315 successive "in sync" indications
from layer 1, the UE shall stop and reset the T313 timer. If T313 expires, a "Radio Link failure"
has occurred, and the UE shall drop the call.

N313 Successive Out-Of-Sync Reception Max


N313 specifies the maximum number of successive "out of sync" received from L1.
N313 can be set to one of the following integer values: 1, 2, 4, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200.

N315 Successive In-Sync Reception Counter


N315 specifies the maximum number of successive "in sync" received from L1 during T313 is
activated.
N315 can be set to one of the following integer values: 1, 2, 4, 10, 20, 50, 100, 200, 400, 600,
800, 1000.

T308 RRC Conn Release Comp Retransmit Timer


T308 specifies the time between the transmissions of RRC Connection Release
Complete message.

N308 RRC Conn Release Comp Max Retransmits


N308 specifies the maximum number of retransmissions of the RRC CONNECTION RELEASE
COMPLETE message.

T3212 Periodic Location Update Timer


T3212 specifies how often the UE will perform the periodic location update procedure. It is
signaled in SIB1.
When T3212 is set to zero, the UE will regard the timer to be infinite.
