MCC Task Forces

MCC Task Forces (TFs) are teams of highly skilled experts, brought together to perform specific technical work under the direction of the Partnership.

Similar to STFs, ETSI hosts TFs on behalf of the Partners, at present there is one active 3GPP MCC Task Force - MCC TF160.

MCC TF160 - 3GPP TTCN Test Suites for UE conformance testing

Terms of Reference

Latest TF160 Terms of Reference are in RP-213474, approved at TSG RAN#94-e, December 2021.


The MCC TF160 was setup in June 2000 and is under the responsibility of 3GPP TSG RAN WG 5 (RAN5) for the development, maintenance and deliveries of TTCN Test Suites. MCC TF160 is the 3GPP TTCN expertise pool for TSG RAN, as well as for TSG CT and TSG SA for some features (e.g. NAS, IMS, MCX). The task force (TF) consists of skilled protocol / TTCN experts coming from various companies of the 3GPP partners.

To date, the following conformance test cases have been developed in TTCN and are being maintained:

  • 1700 UTRA FDD & LCR TDD tests (Radio Access & NAS),
  • 2200 LTE FDD & TDD tests (E-UTRA & EPC),
  • 820 5G FR1 & FR2 tests (EN-DC & NR/5GC).
  • 190 Positioning tests,
  • 280 IMS tests,
  • 60 Mission Critical tests,

The majority of those tests have been verified/approved and made available to the industry for User Equipment (UE) conformance testing and certification purposes.
