5G NG-RAN and UE identifiers

- RAN UE NGAP ID: A RAN UE NGAP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the NG interface within an gNB. When an AMF receives an RAN UE NGAP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical NG-connection for this UE. Once known to an AMF this is included in all UE associated NGAP signalling. The RAN UE NGAP ID shall be unique within the logical NG-RAN node.

- AMF UE NGAP ID: An AMF UE NGAP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the NG interface within the AMF. When a NG-RAN node receives an AMF UE NGAP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical NG-connection for this UE. Once known to a NG-RAN node this ID is included in all UE associated NGAP signalling. The AMF UE NGAP ID shall be unique within the AMF logical node.

- Old NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID: An Old NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the Xn interface within a source NG-RAN node. When a target NG-RAN node receives an Old NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical Xn-connection for this UE. Once known to a target NG-RAN node this ID is included in all UE associated XnAP signalling. The Old NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID shall be unique within the logical NG-RAN node.

- New NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID: A New NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the Xn interface within a target NG-RAN node. When a source NG-RAN node receives a New NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical Xn-connection for this UE. Once known to a source NG-RAN node this ID is included in all UE associated XnAP signalling. The New NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID shall be unique within the logical NG-RAN node.

- M-NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID: An M-NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the Xn interface within an M-NG-RAN node for dual connectivity. When an S-NG- RAN node receives an M-NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical Xn-connection for this UE. Once known to an S-NG-RAN node this ID is included in all UE associated XnAP signalling. The M-NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID shall be unique within the logical NG-RAN node.

- S-NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID: A S-NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the Xn interface within an S-NG-RAN node for dual connectivity. When an M-NG-RAN node receives a S-NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical Xn-connection for this UE. Once known to an M-NG-RAN node this ID is included in all UE associated XnAP signalling. The S-NG-RAN node UE XnAP ID shall be unique within the logical NG-RAN node.

- gNB-CU UE F1AP ID: A gNB-CU UE F1AP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the F1 interface within a gNB-CU. When a gNB-DU receives a gNB-CU UE F1AP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical F1-connection for this UE. The gNB-CU UE F1AP ID shall be unique within the gNB-CU logical node.

- gNB-DU UE F1AP ID: A gNB-DU UE F1AP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the F1 interface within a gNB-DU. When a gNB-CU receives a gNB-DU UE F1AP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical F1-connection for this UE. The gNB-DU UE F1AP ID shall be unique within the gNB-DU logical node.

-gNB-CU-CP UE E1AP ID: A gNB-CU-CP UE E1AP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the E1 interface within a gNB-CU-CP. When a gNB-CU-UP receives a gNB-CU-CP UE E1AP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical E1-connection for this UE. The gNB-CU-CP UE E1AP ID shall be unique within the gNB-CU-CP logical node.

- gNB-CU-UP UE E1AP ID: A gNB-CU-UP UE E1AP ID shall be allocated so as to uniquely identify the UE over the E1 interface within a gNB-CU-UP. When a gNB-CU-CP receives a gNB-CU-UP UE E1AP ID it shall store it for the duration of the UE-associated logical E1-connection for this UE. The gNB-CU-UP UE E1AP ID shall be unique within the gNB-CU-UP logical node.

- gNB-DU ID: The gNB-DU ID is configured at the gNB-DU and used to uniquely identify the gNB-DU at least within a gNB-CU. The gNB-DU provides its gNB-DU ID to the gNB-CU during the F1 Setup procedure. The gNB-DU ID is used only within F1AP procedures.
