Attach Type

 

The Attach Type indicates the purpose of the attach and as in most of other procedure, the attach type is also determined by a kind of mutual agreement between UE and Network. It means that UE indicates the attatch type I want to get and Network finaly determines available attach type and informs it to UE as in following procedure.

There are three different types of attach as listed below.

  • EPS attach : indicate the attach for EPS services only)
  • Combined EPS/IMSI attach  : indicate the attach for both EPS and non-EPS services
  • EPS emergency attach : indicate the attach for emergency bearer services
