  • Inactivity Timer

The timeout before a UE returns from connected mode to idle mode is configured by
setting tInactivityTimer. This RBS level parameter influences the amount of time a UE spends in idle mode and hence whether the idle mode or connected mode mobility configuration is dominant. A low setting (typically 10 seconds) allows devices to return to idle mode more often, reducing the demand on system resources and increasing the influence of the idle mode mobility configuration.

There are also these:

  • QciProfileOperatorDefined.inactivityTimerOffset
  • QciProfilePredefined.inactivityTimerOffset

KPI can be improved but actually user experience will decrease, then later traffic reduce, lose money.

For NR SA what is reason to have separete inactivity timer for SRB, DRB?
In LTE only 1 inactivity timer seen.

In LTE also we have 2 inactivity timers: One for DRB and other for NAS signalling.

If I am not wrong, there is one more inactivity timer at PDU session level in 5G as per 3gpp.

Seen only 1 at DRB i.e. inactivity timer once expired UE move to RRC idle.
Please tell other one for NAS?

Yes agree I seen 2 types 1 for DRB and other for SRB once expired UE move to rrc idle
Then 3 types inactivity timer used to bring UE to RRC inactive state.

Yes other is for NAS.

I mean parameter name for NAS and its value.

Generally inactivity timer mean once UE have no data in buffer/rx for defined value and timer expired then UE move to idle.

Name is vendor specific (Samsung → SIGNALING_INACTIVITY_TIMER).

If there is no NAS activity till this timer, and DRB timer also expire, UE will be released.
