Summary on LTE Identifiers

Description on LTE Identifiers
IMSI International Mobile Subscriber Identity  Unique identification of mobile (LTE)   subscriber
 Network (MME) gets the PLMN of the   subscriber
IMSI (not more than 15 digits) = PLMN ID + MSIN = MCC + MNC + MSIN P
PLMN ID Public Land Mobile Network IdentifierPublic Land Mobile Network Identifier  Unique identification of PLMN PLMN ID (not more than 6 digits) = MCC + MNC P
MCC Mobile Country Code  assigned by ITU 3 digits P
MNC Mobile Network Code  assigned by National Authority 2~3 digits P
MSIN Mobile Subscriber Identification Number  assigned by operator 9~10 digits P
GUTI Globally Unique Temporary UE Identity  To identify a UE between the UE and the   MME on behalf of IMSI for security reason GUTI (not more than 80 bits) = GUMMEI + M-TMSI T
TIN Temporary Identity used in Next Update  GUTI is stored in TIN parameter of UEs MM   context. TIN indicates which temporary ID   will be used in the next update TIN = GUTI T
S-TMSI SAE Temporary Mobile Subscriber Identity  To locally identify a UE in short within a   MME group (Unique within a MME Pool) S-TMSI (40 bits) = MMEC + M-TMSI T
M-TMSI MME Mobile Subscriber Identity  Unique within a MME 32 bits T
GUMMEI Globally Unique MME Identity  To identify a MME uniquely in global
 GUTI contains GUMMEI
GUMMEI (not more than 48 bits)= PLMN ID + MMEI P
MMEI MME Identifier  To identify a MME uniquely within a PLMN
 Operator commissions at eNB
MMEI (24 bits) = MMEGI + MMEC P
MMEGI MME Group Identifier  Unique within a PLMN 16 bits P
MMEC MME Code  To identify a MME uniquely within a MME   Group.
 S-TMSI contains MMEC
8 bits P
C-RNTI Cell- Radio Network Temporary Identifier  To identify an UE uniquely in a cell 0x0001 ~ 0xFFF3 (16 bits) T
eNB S1AP UE ID eNB S1 Application Protocol UE ID  To uniquely identify UE on S1- MME   Interface in eNB 32-bit Integer (0 .. 232 - 1) T
MME S1AP UE ID MME S1 Application Protocol UE ID  To uniquely identify UE on S1- MME   Interface in MME 32-bit Integer (0 .. 232 - 1) T
IMEI International Mobile Equipment Identity  To identify a ME (Mobile Equipment)   uniquely IMEI (15 digits) = TAC + SNR + CD P
IMEI/SV IMEI/Software Version  To identify a ME (Mobile Equipment)   uniquely IMEI/SV (16 digits) = TAC + SNR + SVN P
ECGI E-UTRAN Cell Global Identifier  To identify a Cell in global (Globally   Unique)
 EPC can know UE location based of ECGI
ECGI (not more than 52 bits) = PLMN I D+ ECI P
ECI E-UTRAN Cell Identifier  To identify a Cell within a PLMN ECI (28 Bits) = eNB ID + Cell ID P
Global eNB ID Global eNodeB Identifier  To identify an eNB in global (Globally   Unique) Global eNB ID (not more than 44 bits) = PLMN ID + eNB ID P
eNB ID eNodeB Identifier  To identify an eNB within a PLMN 20 bits P
P-GW ID PDN GW Identity  To identify a specific PDN GW (P-GW)
 HSS assigns P-GW for PDN (IP network)   connection of each UE
IP address (4 bytes) or FQDN (variable length) P
TAI Tracking Area Identity  To identify Tracking Area
 Globally unique
TAI (not more than 32 bits) = PLMN ID + TAC P
TAC Tracking Area Code  To indicate eNB to which Tracking Area the   eNB belongs (per Cell)
 Unique within a PLMN
16 bits P
TAI List Tracking Area Identity List  UE can move into the cells included in TAL   list without location update (TA update)
 Globally unique
{TAI} (variable length) P
PDN ID Packet Data Network Identity  To identify an PDN (IP network), that   mobile data user wants to communicate   with
 PDN Identity (APN) is used to determine   the P-GW and point of interconnection with   a PDN
 With APN as query parameter to the DNS   procedures, the MME will receive a list of   candidate P-GWs, and then a P-GW is   selected by MME with policy
PDN Identify = APN = APN.NI + APN.OI (variable length) P
EPS Bearer ID Evolved Packet System Bearer Identifier  To identify an EPS bearer (Default or   Dedicated) per an UE 4 bits T
E-RAB ID E-UTRAN Radio Access Bearer Identifier  To identify an E-RAB per an UE 4 bits T
DRB ID Data Radio Bearer Identifier  To identify a DRB per an UE 4 bits T
LBI Linked EPS Bearer ID  To identify the default bearer associated   with a dedicated EPS bearer 4 bits T
TEID Tunnel End Point identifier  To identify the end point of a GTP tunnel   when the tunnel is established 32 bits T
P: Permanent    T: Temporary
