ETSI - ETS 300 974
Digital Cellular Telecommunications System (Phase 2+); Mobile Application Part (MAP) Specification
|Publication Date:||1 March 1999|
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.
This European Telecommunication Standard (ETS) 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 4 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 which are provided to MAP service-users by a MAP serviceprovider.
Clauses 5 to 10 of this ETS describe the MAP services.
Clauses 11 to 14 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...).
Clauses 15 to 21 describe the MAP user procedures which make use of MAP services.
