Inter-UE Transfer enhancements

Rapporteur:  Mr. Zhang, Heng liang

This TR intends to develop enhancements to Rel-9 IMS Service Continuity in TS 23.237, specifically in the functional area of Inter-UE Transfer. The main objective is to provide enhancements to mobility of media flows of a session between different UEs (Inter-UE Transfer) with respect to the following aspects:
  • Extension of Inter-UE Transfer and Collaborative Session capabilities specified in Rel-09 to multiple UEs belonging to different IMS subscriptions under the same operator.
  • Establishment of a Collaborative Session at session setup.
  • Support for control of media components of a Collaborative Session by more than one UE simultaneously.
  • Transfer of control of a Collaborative Session.
  • Controller initiated media modification on a Controllee UE (e.g. video resolution).
  • Discovery of ongoing IMS multimedia sessions on different UEs.
  • Inter-UE Transfer initiated by the target UE when:
    • the target UE belongs to the Collaborative Session but it is not a Controller UE;
    • the target UE does not belong to the Collaborative Session and wants to join;
    • Inter-UE Transfer is performed without establishing a Collaborative Session.
  • Replication of an ongoing multimedia session from one UE on another UE.
  • Inter-UE Transfer between UEs connected to the IMS via an IP-CAN and ICS entities that provide interworking with UEs in the CS Domain.
  • Execution of MMTEL services for Collaborative Sessions.
This document contains the results of an assessment of alternative architectures to support Inter-UE Transfer enhancements.
