MCC Task Forces

MCC Task Forces (TFs) are teams of highly skilled experts, brought together to perform specific technical work under the direction of the Partnership.

Similar to STFs, ETSI hosts TFs on behalf of the Partners, at present there is one active 3GPP MCC Task Force - MCC TF160.

MCC TF160 - 3GPP TTCN specifications for UE

Terms of Reference

Latest TF160 Terms of Reference is RP-161985, approved at RAN#74, Vienna, Austria, Spain, December 5 – 8, 2016.

The technical areas of TF160 cover the conformance test specifications for UE signalling, protocols and radio access bearer interoperability in FDD and TDD radio technologies in UTRA and E-UTRA. The UE handover and interoperability between E-UTRA and UTRA, GERAN or non-3GPP technologies also belongs to the area.

TF160 is responsible for the development, maintenance and deliveries of NAS, SMS, RRC, MAC, RLC, RAB, PDCP, A-GPS, AGNSS, HSPA /HSPA+, IMS-CC, MTSI, interRAT HO, as well as LTE/SAE and LTE positioning test suites in the different Releases according to the relevant 3GPP prose test specifications. For the purposes of enabling GCF/PTCRB certification of handsets, priority is given to the completion and maintenance of the high priority test cases.

This Task Force is also responsible to implement the prose and TTCN CRs in TTCN, to integrate the verified TTCN test cases into the existing ATS and to deliver the 3GPP formally approved ATS releases and interim working ATS releases.

MCC TF160 consists of five teams; a UTRA FDD team, a LCR TDD team, an LTE/EPC team, an IMS team and a positioning team. The UTRA FDD team concentrates on the FDD test suites (R99 to Rel-9) in TTCN-2 & the test suites (Rel-10 onwards) in TTCN-3. The LCR TDD team concentrates on the LCR TDD test suites for Rel-4 and the later releases in TTCN-2. The LTE/EPC team contributes to the LTE/EPC test suites in Rel-8 and the later Releases in TTCN-3. The IMS team progresses all IMS related test cases in TTCN-3. The positioning team focuses on the positioning test suite in TTCN-3. The test split according to the access technologies of FDD and TDD has been maintained for UTRA HSPA test. The LTE/EPC test suites are shared by the technologies of FDD and TDD.

TF160 will provide assistance to those parties interested in developing HCR/VHCR TDD on the condition that there are no resource implications to that approved by PCG.
