Note that, after each TSG Plenary Meeting, the 3GPP Word documents are produced first, and later on – excepted for the releases not frozen yet, and 8xx-Technical-Reports – the PDF documents are published by the ETSI.
This TS specifies a mechanism, which can be used as a platform for providing special tariffs and/or special set of service features for certain subscribers within a regionally restricted area or areas.
The motivation for this concept is to create means for network operators to build new service and tariff packages, which take into account subscriber groups and their needs.
The localised service area is both an optional network feature and an optional UE feature. Usage and implementation of the different SoLSA service features may vary according to operator's service packages.
This feature is not intended to replace the existing method of cell selection, cell indication and handover.
