Software workflow

Basic Conception (1)

RRC (Radio Resource Control)


provides information transfer service to the NAS (Non Access

Stratum).
responsible for controlling the configuration of UMTS radio

interface Layers 1 and 2.

RRC Connection
A point to point bi directional connection between the RRC (Radio

Resource Control) entities on the UE (User Equipment) and

UTRAN (UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network).


The UE requires an RRC connection to access the services of the

UMTS network.

Software workflow

Basic Conception (2)

RAB -Radio Access Bearer


identify the service the AS (Access Stratum) provides to the

NAS (Non Access Stratum) for transfer of user data between the UE (User Equipment) and the CN (Core Network).

RB -Radio Bearer
The service provided by the Layer 2 for the transfer of user

data between UE (User Equipment) and UTRAN (UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network).

Software workflow

Basic Conception (3)

RL (Radio Link)
RL is a logical association between single UE (User

Equipment) and a single UTRAN (UMTS Terrestrial Radio Access Network) access point.
Its physical realization comprises one or more radio bearer

transmissions.
It is possible for a UMTS mobile to have many radio links

established, when this occurs the mobile is said to be in a soft handover.
