It is necessary to transfer between entities of a Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN) information specific to the PLMN in order to deal with the specific behaviour of roaming Mobile Stations (MS)s. The Signalling System No. 7 specified by CCITT is used to transfer this information.
The present document describes the requirements for the signalling system and the procedures needed at the application level in order to fulfil these signalling needs.
Clauses 1 to 6 are related to general aspects such as terminology, mobile network configuration and other protocols required by MAP.
MAP consists of a set of MAP services that are provided to MAP service-users by a MAP service-provider.
Clauses 7 to 13A of the present document describe the MAP services.
Clauses 14 to 17 define the MAP protocol specification and the behaviour of service provider (protocol elements to be used to provide MAP services, mapping on to TC service primitives, abstract syntaxes, etc.).
Clauses 18 to 25 describe the MAP user procedures that make use of MAP services.
The present document specifies functions, procedures and information which apply to GERAN Iu mode. However, functionality related to GERAN Iu mode is neither maintained nor enhanced.
