Universal Mobile Telecommunications System (UMTS); Application of Q.1900 series to bearer-independent Circuit Switched (CS) core network architecture; Stage 3
|Publication Date:||1 April 2011|
The present document describes the protocols to be used when ITU-T Q.1902 "Bearer Independent Call Control" is used as call control protocol in a 3GPP Bearer Independent CS core network 3GPP TS 23.205  The Q.1902 operates between (G)MSC servers .The BICC architecture as described in ITU-T Q.1902 - consists of a number of protocols. The following types of protocols are described: call control protocol, bearer control protocols and a resource control protocol for this architecture. The architecture complies with the requirements imposed by 3GPP TS 23.205  and TS 23.153 .
The present document is valid for a 3rd generation PLMN (UMTS) complying with Release 4 and later.
Note: Q.1902 can be used in other network architectures than the one defined in 3GPP TS 23.205
