  • Publication number: 20200336935
    Abstract: A notification is made of information in one PDU session establishment procedure to a terminal apparatus, the information being associated with information for identifying one NW slice that is a target of congestion control and the information for identifying another NW slice associated, to prevent a PDU session establishment procedure using information for identifying multiple NW slices at a time. As a method for interpreting the information for identifying the other NW slice associated, two implementation schemes are defined that use explicit notifications from a network and rules configured for the terminal apparatus. In a case that NW slice based congestion control is applied, information for identifying the NW slice to which establishment of a PDU session is allowed is notified as an exception.
