The user equipment (UE) -initiated service request procedure and the network-initiated service request procedure are the two most common procedures that occur in a Fifth Generation (5G) mobile network. Collisions between signaling for each of these procedures is common. With current Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standards, such collisions often lead to the looping of these procedures and, eventually, to call drops. This submission proposes techniques to handle potential collisions involving the procedures and, thus, avoid the call loss that typically accompanies such collisions.
