What's New

Applies to: NAS/C LTE/EPC r16.7.0 v8.2.0-8.2.2

What's New in NAS/C LTE/EPC v8.2.2


The OSS NAS Tools for C now allows the gprsEncryptionAlgorithmGEA1Available field in IE MSNetworkCapability (that is, MSNetworkCapability.gea1Bits.gprsEncryptionAlgorithmGEA1Available) to take a value of 1 or 0. This enables the current version of eNodeB to serve a phone that is compliant with 3GPP release 10 or earlier.

What's New in NAS/C LTE/EPC v8.2.1.2


The UE can now set Quality of Service Class Identifier (QCI) to zero. Previously, this was not allowed.

QCI is a component of the EPS Quality Of Service information element. It is present in the following LTE ESM messages:

  • Activate Default EPS Bearer Context Request
  • Activate Dedicated EPS Bearer Context Request
  • Modify EPS Bearer Context Request
  • Bearer Resource Allocation Request
  • Bearer Resource Modification Request

The EPS bearer identity now accepts values within the range of 0 to 15. In previous versions of TS 24.301, the EPS bearer identity did not accept values within the range of 1 to 4.

What's New in NAS/C LTE/EPC v8.2.1


  • The NAS LTE and NAS 5GS libraries can now be used at the same time in an application. Previously, this was not possible due to name conflicts.


  • Hexadecimal digits are now allowed in a UERadioCapabilityID information element. Previously, only decimal digits were allowed.
