Regarding your part of the question: "what will happen in case UE moved

out LTE coverage and switched to 3G/2G is it called redirection." There are
3 concepts.
1) Redirection: This decision is entirely left to the network and happens
when the UE is in connected mode. The network generally sends the UE
an "RRC Connection Release" with some redirection information. So, now
the UE moves to Idle mode and based on the redirection information
received, it tries to camp on that frequency (maybe of the same RAT or a
different RAT).
2) Handover: This is again triggered by the network. The UE has to be in
connected mode. The network requests UE to send measurement reports
of serving cell/neighbour cell etc. And based on the measurements, it
initiates handover.
3) On the other hand, if UE is in idle mode and is gradually moving out of
LTE coverage area, then UE decides to reselect to the most preferred RAT
based on the coverage around.
Cell Reselection:
When UE is camping on a cell, it attempts to reselect a better cell. The
UE perform the following steps:
Step 1: Measurements of neighbouring cells
Step 2: Evaluation of the measured results of neighbouring cells
Step 3: Cell reselection and access verification Cell Redirection:
The redirection procedure can be performed by the eNodeB by sending an
RRCConnectionRelease message including redirection information in
redirectedCarrierInfo. This applies also to CSFB. Use with cell reselection
priority other way, is that the eNodeB can optionally include
idleModeMobilityControlInfo in the RRCConnectionRelease message in
order to provide information about cell reselection priority dedicated to the

Cell reselection happens in IDLE mode to camp on better cell whereas Cell
redirection happens in Connected Mode, generally when directed to 2G or
3G system.

In fact I have a TAU Reject whenever coming from the 3G I have a Activate
PDP context reject, so I believe that the MME didn't open a default EPS
Bearer on 4G technology and UE once failed the TAU must again make the
attach.A strange thing that I noticed from the log, is that after the attach,
the UE make often a TAU request with repeated TAU accept.

Most of the existing LTE Networks, up to recently, in the USA did not have
the EPC configured for UMTS>>LTE PDP context continuity. So I think it
might be the case for you. For the TAU request with TAU accept, my
thinking is that was a detach (from 3G) and a new attach in LTE.
