d. Exchange Properties

2 Data

2.1 Traffic Data

2.1.1 Number Series Analysis

The number series analysis is a general purpose analysis function which can be used by
several user functions.

This function provides the means to define analysis characteristics for number series. The
number series are grouped in analysis trees and a pre-analysis is used to select the tree
corresponding to a user function, numbering plan and nature of address.
The user functions can request analysis of a number to the analysis function. The number is
analyzed digit by digit in the tree specified for the associated numbering plan and nature of
address. The characteristic or characteristics obtained as result of the analysis are returned
to the user function. The interpretation of the results depends on the user function.

The valid values for the characteristics, numbering plan and nature of address can be
different for each user function and are described in this document. It is also described the
existing user functions and the meaning of the characteristics.

2.1.1.1 AUC type

The Number Series Analysis function is used to associate the AUC type (before or after
release 99) to the IMSI series. If the AUC type is release 99 the message to send to AUC will
be Send Authentication Vectors, otherwise the message to send will be Send parameters.

An area is defined in HLR by a set of number series. All destination nodes in the network for
which the first digits of the destination nodes address match that number series are
considered to belong to the area.

In order to define specific data (PLMN specific supplementary service codes and private tag
values) in the areas where the services or features associated with this data are supported,
three commands, to initiate, to end and to print the area specific data, are introduced.

The PLMN specific Supplementary Services (SS) and private tags that are possible to initiate,
end and print are described in this document.

2.1.3 Text Strings for USSD Applications

USSD operations are used when structured, functional


signalling is not available for a certain supplementary service.
The protocol provides a container mechanism to transport
unstructured data to a USSD Application that is able to
analyze and act on the unstructured data.

Commands are provided to modify the text strings used by the


USSD Applications. When a text string is longer that what can
be entered in a single change command, commands are
provided to allow the operator to enter the text string in
several parts.

2.2 Mobile Telephony Data

2.2.1 Exchange Properties

In order to make the handling of HLR exchange properties


flexible and to limit the amount of fixed data in the exchange,
two commands, to print and change the exchange properties,
have been introduced.

The HLR exchange properties that are possible to print and


change with commands are described in this document.

The handling of the HLR exchange properties depends on the


type of the parameter which can be mandatory or optional. If
the type is mandatory the application dependent value of the
parameter shall be set with the change command. If the type
is optional the default value given in this document is used as
a preset value. However, a new value in the frame of the
value range can be set with the change command.

The designation of an exchange property can be chosen from


2 up to 15 characters.

To improve the readability, all the HLR exchange properties


have been divided into categories according to their
functionality.

An exchange property designation begins with 2 to 4 letters


describing its main functionality (parameter category).

The remaining characters of the designation are chosen


according to the functionality of the parameter.

The following categories of command changeable HLR


exchange property exist:

In the case that a certain exchange property is associated to an optional function
which is not supported by the system, the corresponding exchange property
designation will not be recognized by the system.
