The RNC checks whether the paged UE is engaged in an ongoing radio resource
control (RRC) connection. If there is no connection, the RNC starts the idle mode
paging procedure.

1. Cell update
Location updates
The UE message contains the cell update cause, which can be:
1. cell reselection
2. periodic cell update
3. uplink data transmission

3. uplink data transmission
4. paging response
5. re-entering service area
6. radio link failure
.
If the cell update was caused by cell reselection, the RNC updates the
UE location information and resets the CELL_FACH or CELL_PCH
state supervision timer.The RNC's confirmation message to the UE
includes a radio network temporary identifier for the cell (C-RNTI) if the
UE remains in CELL_FACH state.
2. URA update
When the UE is in URA_PCH state and has switched to a new URA, it sends an
update message with the U-RNTI (radio network temporary identifier) and URA
update cause to the RNC. The cause is either URA reselection or periodic URA
update.
