1.0 Introduction
This document attempts to capture technical information related to CS-1 IN services implementation for easy reference of the user. It serves to provide an overall understanding about the SSP capabilities needed, INAP protocol, and possible ways of implementing the various CS-1 IN services.

1.1 Assumptions
1. The call flows shown in the document assume Fixed service being offered to the subscribers, and not necessarily the Wireless Local Loop service.

2. SRF relay mode is used with IP residing in same SSP.

2.0 Basic Call State Model (BCSM)


The BCSM is used to describe the actions in a SSP (FSC/MSC) during call origination, forwarding or terminating. It identifies the points in basic call processing when the service logic in SCF is allowed to interact with basic call control capabilities in SSP. Components identified to describe a BSCM: Transition Detection Point (DP) Point in call (PIC)

3.0 Trigger and Detection Point 1.4 Detection Point


Certain basic call events maybe visible to the Service Control Function in IN. The Detection Points are the points in call at which these events are detected. Table below lists the detection points available (DP1-DP10 for originating while DP12 DP18 for terminating). DP no. DP1 DP2 DP3 DP4 DP5 DP6 DP7 DP8 DP9 DP10 DP11 DP12 DP13 DP14 DP15 DP16 DP17 DP18 Table Detection Point Name Origination Attempt_Authorized Collected_Information Analysed_Information Route_Select_Failure O_Called_Party_Busy O_No_Answer O_Answer O_Mid_Call O_Disconnect O_Abandon Reserved TerminatingAttemptAuthorized T_Called_Party_Busy T_No_Answer T_Answer T_Mid_Call T_Disconnect T_Abandon

A DP can be armed in order to notify the SCF that the DP was encountered, and potentially to allow the SCF to influence subsequent handling of the call. If the DP is not armed, the processing entity continues the processing without SCF involvement. Table below shows the types of DP identified.

Table BCSM DP types

1.5 Arming Mechanism


The mechanism by which the DP is armed. A DP may be statically armed or dynamically armed. There are two types of trigger mechanism: dynamically armed Triggers are armed by the service logic in SCP on a per call basis. These are called Event Detection Point-Request (EDP-R) & Event Detection Point-Notification(EDP-N). statically armed Triggers that are armed in the provisioning process in SSP. These are called Trigger Detection Point-Request (TDP-R) & Trigger Detection Point-Notification (TDP-N).

1.6 Criteria
Criterias are the conditions that must be met in order for the SSF to request instructions from the SCF. For TDPs, Detection Point Criteria must be met before the SSP can notify SCP that the DP was encountered. Table below shows the various possible DP criteria that can be assigned at the SSP: Legend X Applicable Not applicable

Facility Information (Note 2) Feature Activation (Note 3) Cause Specific abbreviated dialling string (Note 1) Specific Calling Party Number (Note 4) Nature of Address Bearer Capability (Note 5) Trigger Assigned Specific B-channel Identifier

NOTES 1. Same type of trigger requiring analysis of a specific number of received digits. The analysis can be based on the complete number of received digits or can be based on a predefined number of digits starting from the most significant digit of the received information. The inclusion for these criteria for DP 2 is due to the change in the originating BCSM. 2. A match on the Facility Information Element contained in a signalling message as defined in DSS1 and ISUP. 3. In a local exchange only. The BCSM has to analyse (if facility is allowed, stored as Class of Service attribute) the received information and has to initiate an IN trigger if required. A feature activation/indication can be available at DP 1-10 in the originating BCSM for a party served by an ISDN interface and can be available at DP 8 in the originating BCSM for a party served by a non-ISDN line. A feature activation/indication can be available at DP 14-18 in the terminating BCSM for a party served by an ISDN interface and can be available at DP 16 in the terminating BCSM for a party served by a non-ISDN line.

Page 20 of 159

INTELLIGENT NETWORKS CS-1 INAP CALL FLOW


4. 5. The analysis should not be based on the complete calling party number, it shall be based on a predefined number of digits, starting from the most significant digit of the calling party number. Interpretation of Bearer Capability as optional for DP 2-18 needs further clarification (e.g. DP 1 mandatory means DP 12 mandatory). Further, Bchannel selection does not appear as a DP-criteria in the table because specific selection of B-channel by the user is for further study: the network can override user selection of B-channel to be used.

If a criteria is marked with an X for a Detection Point, then this means that a conditional TDP which is armed at the Detection Point may require the criteria as listed in the table to be satisfied before informing the SCF that the TDP was encountered, e.g. a conditional TDP at DP 1 may require the class of service criteria to be satisfied before the SCF is informed that the TDP was encountered. If a criteria is marked with an O for a Detection Point, then this means that it is implementation dependent if the criteria specific information is still present at that DP because not all suppliers may retain this information for the duration of the call/attempt. If the information is still present, the treatment is the same as a criteria marked with a X.

1.7 Trigger
The trigger item is defined as a single set of DP criteria and the associated information that an SSF/CCF uses to determine if the criteria is met and how to process the trigger. The trigger item consists of trigger type, DP criteria, and the SCF routing information. The trigger items are assigned to users by management process. An SSF should use the SCF routing information to format and route the messages to the appropriate SCF application. The SCF may use existing MTP/SCCP capabilities to route to the SCF.

1.8 DP Processing
With reference to ITU-T Q1214 Section 4.2.2.7, DP processing should be performed according to the following rules: Rule 1: At any DP, a specific trigger condition can only trigger one service logic program instance (SLPI) at a time. Rule 2: At any DP, processing of notifications EDP-N and TDP-N has higher priority than processing of requests EDP-R and TDP-R. If several notifications exist, EDP-R and TDP-R are processed when all notifications have been processed. Rule 3: If a DP is both armed as EDP and TDP, then the EDP processing has higher priority than the TDP processing since the EDP has been armed in an already existing SSF-SCF relationship.

Page 21 of 159

INTELLIGENT NETWORKS CS-1 INAP CALL FLOW


Rule 4: If a DP is both armed as EDP-R and TDP-R, The EDP-R is first processed and, if the control relationship is terminated as a result of the EDP-R processing, processing of the TDP-R is allowed.

6.0 Freephone or TollFree Service 1.9 Service Description


Freephone service allows a service customer to offer a Local Toll-Free number to their service users. The service users who are the general public (subscribers or subscriber of other network operator) can make toll free calls using the freephone service number, the charges for which are picked-up by the called party, who is the service customer. Freephone uses 7 digits number with 1600 dialing prefix. The service is offered by the operator to its service customers who are corporate organizations. Each corporate customer has a unique freephone service number for the public to access. This service customer/ subscriber can choose to be reached with a single number, based on the service call flow he defined. The service provider according to the customer requirements performs Freephone service parameterization/customization. Basic features of the call flow includes: Time of Day routing. A-number routing. (define Grade of Service based on the calling subscriber identity and membership to certain organization) User selection routing. Hunt option (top of the list, most idle, next after previous answer) Playing of announcements (to keep the caller informed and advised of the option within a call flow.) Since IVR prompts are service customers specific, IVR functionality should be supported by the Customers PABX or Call Centre functionality. The operator should provide only one level of announcement functionality and does not support deep tree IVR functionality. Calls can be accessed from all parts of the country (payphone, fixed line phone and mobile phone) with the system having the intelligence to route the call to its nearest destination based on the calling party number. Mobile service user will probably be responsible for the airtime charges whilst the service customer will be responsible for fixed line charges. International access is possible and it depends on operators implementation. Freephone Service applies to speech calls only.

Page 27 of 159

INTELLIGENT NETWORKS CS-1 INAP CALL FLOW

1.10 Service Function


When the toll free service is invoked, the FSC/SSP analyzes the called party number and determines that it is a Freephone call and routes it to the Freephone service logic in the SCP for further call processing. In SCP, the called party, calling party information together with service key is analysed and if the criterias are met, the call is completed and all the charges are applied to the called party. Freephone service employs specific dialed digit pattern (1-600-XXX-XXXX being a common plan). Statically Armed Freephone Trigger Triggers for Freephone service are not armed on a per subscriber basis, but are switch (or office) based. Following criterias maybe used to provision in the SSP : Specific digit string (DP2 or DP3) Prefix (DP2 or DP3) Either way, the number defined in these criterias are usually the first few digits of the actual freephone number (eg. 1600) but not the complete digit string of the freephone number.

1.11 Charging
Offline-charging method is used whereby the CDRs generated at the SSP will be processed to bill both the service users and service customers in the manner below: 1. Service users free of charge. This can be done based on the called party number (1600 XXXX XXX) in the CDR. 2. Service customer monthly charge and service usage charge. Service usage charge can be done based on the called party number (1600 XXXX XXX), cause value and the duration of the call.

1.12 Scenarios
6.1.1 Scenario 1: Unsuccessful TollFree Call (Barring based on Service Providers predefined incoming Blacklist number at the service level)
Description:
Usually, the freephone number is accessible from all types of phones from any operator. However, sometimes there might be a need to block access to freephone service from a certain type of phones, eg. payphone or operator assisted calls. These kind of calls can be differentiated because they have specific value in calling party category field of the ISUP IAM message. The service logic should have the functionality to allow the network operator to defined a certain list of calling party number or calling party category that is barred from accessing the operators freephone service. When the caller makes the call, he hears an invalid tone played by the switch indicating that it is not a valid call. This is achieved by the SCP by sending a INAP ReleaseCall message to the SSP with certain cause value. The default value of the cause code is Normal Unspecified (31) which corresponds to a 3 beep tone. There is no charge incurred for the call, both for the service user and the service customer.

Call Flow:
The following diagram shows the IN call flow for this scenario.

6.1.2 Scenario 2: Unsuccessful TollFree Call (Barring based on Service Customers predefined incoming blacklist number)
Description:
Each service customer has its own group of desired/privilege customers and undesired customers. The service customer may wish to have different call routing treatment for different kinds of caller. For the undesired callers, they may want to play an announcement to block the actual routing of the call to its destination. Therefore, the service logic should have the functionality to allow each of the service customer to define its own list of incoming blacklist numbers. When the caller makes the call, the service logic recognizes the calling partys number and plays an announcement to the caller, eg. Sorry, you are not allowed to call this number There is no charge incurred for the caller (or service user), but the service customer needs to pay for the duration of the announcement call as the call is considered successful call with normal call completion (based on cause code).

Call Flow:
The following diagram shows the IN call flow for this scenario.

Establish bearer connection to IP Start announcement A disconnects the call

DP: oDisconnect TT: oDisconnect ContinueMessage {ReportBCSMEvent(oDisconnec t)} ContinueMessage { SpecialisedResourceReport (} ENDMessage { DisconnectForwardConnection (),ReleaseCall}
At the end of announcement, the SCP instructs the SSP to end the call and disconnect the connection with the SRF. If the caller hangs up before the end of announcement, the SCP instruct s SSP to disconnect the connection with the SRF.

Description:
Dependant on the individual service customer who owns the particular freephone number, the routing of the calls, when to play announcement or route to which destination number varies. Usually, a service customer will need to play different Welcome announcement depending on the time of the call. When it is non-office hour, the service customer will select a pre-recorded Out of office hour announcement to request the caller to call on the next day. Therefore, the service logic should have the functionality to allow each of the service customer to define its own non-office hour and announcement. When the caller makes the call, the service logic recognizes that it is during the non-office hour of that particular freephone service customer and plays an announcement to the caller, eg. Thank you for calling. Our office is closed. Please call again on the next working day. There is no charge incurred for the caller (or service user), but the service customer needs to pay for the duration of the call announcement as the call is considered successful call with normal call completion (based on cause code).

6.1.4 Scenario 4: Successful TollFree Call from Privilege Callers


Description:
Each service customer has its own group of desired/privilege customers and undesired customers. The service customer may wish to have different call routing treatment for different kinds of caller. For the privilege callers, service customer may want to get the Customer Service Representative to attend to their needs immediately. Also, these CSR could be the selected group who has special language fluency or has more skills. Therefore, the service logic should have the functionality to allow each of the service customer to define its own list of origin dependent routing and time dependant routing. When the caller makes the call, the service logic recognizes they are the privilege callers and immediately route the call to the serving CSR, without even playing the Welcome announcement. Calls are distributed to a number of different destination numbers according to two distribution methods. In the first method (percentage distribution) the service subscriber specifies a percentage of total calls for each destination and the calls are distributed evenly according to this plan on a call-by-call basis. In the second method, (distribution every n-th call) the service subscriber can specify distribution of calls every n-th call to different destination number. Also, when one number is busy/no answer, the service logic will route call to the next available destination number defined in Line hunting. Possible Line Hunting mechanisms are top of the list, most idle, next after previous answer. There is no charge incurred for the caller (or service user), but the service customer needs to pay for the duration of the call as the call is considered successful call with normal call completion (based on cause code).

7.0 8.0 Premium Rate Service 1.13 Service Description


Premium Rate service allows a service customer/provider to offer a Local Premium Rate number with different kinds of service at an extra charge to their service users. The operator calculates the service provider's share of the call charges. Premium Rate uses 7 digits number with 1900 dialing prefix. The service is offered by the operator to its service customers who are corporate organizations. Each corporate customer has a unique Premium Rate service number for the public to access. This service customer can choose to be reached with a single number, based on the service call flow he defined. Basic features of the call flow includes: Time of Day routing. A-number routing. (define Grade of Service based on the calling subscriber identity and membership to certain organization) User selection routing. Hunt option (top of the list, most idle, next after previous answer) Playing of announcements (to keep the caller informed and advised of the option within a call flow.) Since IVR prompts are service customers specific depending on the service offered by the service provider (Audiotext), IVR functionality should be supported by the Customers PABX or Call Centre functionality. The operator should provide only one level of announcement functionality and does not support deep tree IVR functionality. Calls can be accessed from all parts of the country (payphone, fixed line phone and mobile phone) with the system having the intelligence to route the call to its nearest destination based on the calling party number. Mobile service user will probably be responsible for the airtime charges in addition to the premium rate charge of the call. International access is possible and it depends on operators implementation. Premium Rate Service apply to speech calls only.

1.14 Service Function

Page 40 of 159

INTELLIGENT NETWORKS CS-1 INAP CALL FLOW


When the toll free service is invoked, the FSC/SSP (or ILT) analyzes the called party number and determines that it is a Premium Rate call and routes it to the Premium Rate service logic in the SCP for further call processing. In SCP, the called party, calling party information together with service key is analysed and if the criterias are met, the call is completed and all the charges are applied to the called party. Premium Rate service employs specific dialed digit pattern (1-900-XXX-XXXX being a common plan). Statically Armed Premium Rate Trigger Triggers for Premium Rate service are not armed on a per subscriber basis, but are office based. Following criterias maybe used to provision in the SSP : Specific digit string (DP2 or DP3) Prefix (DP2 or DP3) Either way, the number defined in these criterias are usually the first few digits of the actual Premium Rate number (eg. 1900) but not the complete digit string of the premium rate number.

1.15 Scenarios
8.1.1 Scenario 1 : Unsuccessful Premium Rate Call (Barring based on Service Providers predefined incoming Blacklist number at the service level)
Description:
Usually, the freephone number is accessible from all types of phones from any operator. However, sometimes there might be a need to block access to freephone service from a certain type of phones, eg. payphone or operator assisted calls. These kind of calls can be differentiated because they have specific value in calling party category field of the ISUP IAM message. The service logic should have the functionality to allow the network operator to defined a certain list of calling party number or calling party category that is barred from accessing the operators freephone service. When the caller makes the call, he hears an invalid tone played by the switch indicating that it is not a valid call. This is achieved by the SCP by sending a INAP ReleaseCall message to the SSP with certain cause value. The default value of the cause code is Normal Unspecified (31) which corresponds to a 3 beep tone. There is no charge incurred for the call, both for the service user and the service customer.

8.1.2 Scenario 2: Unsuccessful Premium Rate Call (Barring based on Service Customers predefined incoming blacklist number)
Description:
Each service customer has its own group of desired/privilege customers and undesired customers. The service customer may wish to have different call routing treatment for different kinds of caller. For the undesired callers, they may want to play an announcement to block the actual routing of the call to its destination. Therefore, the service logic should have the functionality to allow each of the service customer to define its own list of incoming blacklist numbers. When the caller makes the call, the service logic recognizes the calling partys number and plays an announcement to the caller, eg. Sorry, you are not allowed to call this number There is no charge incurred for the caller (or service user), but the service customer needs to pay for the duration of the announcement call as the call is considered successful call with normal call completion (based on cause code).

9.0 Virtual Card Calling (VCC) 1.16 Service Description


The Virtual Calling Card is a prepaid card that provides personal mobility. Subscribers (users) can use any access network and calling unit, fixed and mobile. The VCC cards are of fixed denomination and no subscriber profile is linked to the card. The backoffice systems (billing etc) do not have any information about the subscriber, but only have the card details and current balance. The VCC cards are not rechargeable. The call flow shown below, considers the VCC call initiated from a fixed line phone on the BSNL/MTNL network. The dialled number (example: "31-822") indicates to the BSNL network that the call has to be routed to the local exchange, from where the call is further handled. This call would not be redirected to mobile network, but would rather be handled on the NLD network and service control point. The subscriber would call a service access number (for example: "31-VCC" [31-822]) to initiate the call. Unless voice recognition is available, all dial option is through DTMF using IVR. Some of the features for VCC are: On line / real time debiting Multiple simultaneous calls per card / account One call at a time / card Calls having duration below certain threshold Service calls like language selection etc. Support multiple currencies simultaneously Provision to give bonus call credit based on usage etc. Follow on Calls Card Merging Auto-dialing

Description:
Sometimes, for promotional purposes, the corporate customers will want to issue to the general public or their customers calling cards with predefined denominations with predefined destination number (eg. the corporate customers own hotline or CSR). When the caller dials the VCC service access number, and enters card number / PIN (if CLI is not recognized), the service logic in SCP automatically pulls out the destination number predefined by the corporate customer and connect the call to this number. The caller will not be prompt to enter his/her desired destination. In fact, the caller will not be able to make calls to other destination besides the predefined number.

9.1.5 Scenario 2 : Successful Virtual Card Call (for the first time)
Description:
Because the ACC card can be purchased from the counter and there is no subscription needed, the service provider does not have the details or profile of the user. In order for the user to specify his/her preferred language for the announcement, the user will be prompt a language selection menu upon successful verification of the card number. Afterwhich, the user can proceed to make outgoing calls if the card balance is sufficient.

10.0 Account Card Calling (ACC) 1.19 Service Description


The ACC service enables a user to make a call from any telephone and for the call charge to be billed to the users account which is specific to this service, and which does not refer either to the calling line or to the called line. An account code and PIN are allocated to a service user by service management procedure. To invoke the service, the user dials an access code as a free call. The user then receives announcements asking for him to dial his account code and PIN. The account code and PIN are validated, and a check could be made for expired credit limits. Unless voice recognition is available, all dial option is through DTMF using IVR. Some of the features for VCC are: On line / real time debiting Multiple simultaneous calls per card / account One call at a time / card Service calls like language selection etc. Support multiple currencies simultaneously Provision to give bonus call credit based on usage etc. Follow on Calls Multi-party conferencing (possible only if mid call triggers supported) Auto-dialing Speed Dialing Calling Group - Max. types possible, such as 'friends & family', 'public utility numbers', 'discussion group'. Max. tel. number per group shall be operator definable Priority Routing based on classes of service / account Intelligent Login (by CLI)

1.20 Service Function


When the ACC service is invoked, the FSC/SSP (or ILT) analyzes the called party number and determines that it is a ACC call and routes it to the ACC service logic in the SCP for further call processing. In SCP, the called party, calling party information together with service key is analysed and if the criterias are met, the call is completed and all the charges are applied to the called party. ACC service employs a 4 digit service access code (eg. 31-122) for callers to dial in to IN for further call connection request. Statically Armed ACC Trigger Triggers for ACC service are not armed on a per subscriber basis, but are office or switch based. Following criterias maybe used to provision in the SSP : Specific digit string (DP2 or DP3) CalledPartyNumber (DP2 or DP3) Either way, the number defined in these criterias should be the complete the complete digit string of the service access code.

1.21 Scenarios
10.1.1Scenario 1 : Successful Account Card Call (Point to point card)
Description:
The example of the application of this card is a parent giving the point to point card to the child who is studying overseas. This way, the child can use the card to call home while the parents will bear the call charges as according to the VCC monthly bill statement. By indicating a predefined destination number (which is the home number), the parent is able to prevent the child from abusing the cards to make calls to other destinations unnecessarily. When the caller dials the ACC service access number, and enters card number / PIN (if CLI is not recognized), the service logic in SCP automatically pulls out the destination number predefined by the customer and connect the call to this number. The caller will not be prompt to enter his/her desired destination. In fact, the caller will not be able to make calls to other destination besides the predefined number.

11.0 Virtual Private Network 1.22 Service Description


This service permits to build a private network by using the public network resources. The subscribers lines (POTS, ISDN2, ISDN30 or even mobile subscribers), connected on different network switches, constitute a virtual PABX, including a number of PABX capabilities, such as dialling restrictions, private numbering plan (PNP), call transfer, call hold, and so on. VPN groups can exist at company, location or individual level. With VPN service, short code dialing is made possible between members of the same group. Subscriber in a VPN group can be of member type actual or virtual. A VPN group can have many subgroups or class of service. Prepaid and postpaid subscribers can both subscribe to VPN service. The service offers the possibility to apply special tariffs for VPN calls and to grant members of a VPN group different access rights to make calls. Also, a private user may access his private network from any point in the network by dialing a special server number and interacting with an IVR, keeping, after authentication, his class of service or his specific rights and privileges. This provides subscribers with physical interface independence. VPN services apply to speech, telefax and data services, not to SMS or emergency calls. A VPN call can be classified as OnNet, Forced-OnNet, OffNet or Virtual-OnNet. OnNet: A call made from a VPN group member to another member in the same group by dialing short digit is classified as an OnNet call. OnNet calls can be either inter-OnNet VPN, where the two subscribers belong to two different VPN subgroups; or the call could be an intra-OnNet VPN call, where both the subscribers belong to the same VPN subgroup. A different tariff rate(usually lower that the normal rate) can be used for OnNet calls. Forced OnNet: A call made from a VPN group member to another member in the same group using the normal dialing pattern of the Public Land Mobile Network, that is without dialing the VPN short digit is classified as a Forced OnNet call. The same tariff rate for On-Net call will be applied. OffNet: A call made from a VPN subscriber to a non-VPN-subscriber is considered as an OffNet call. Tariff rate same as the normal call applies.

Page 80 of 159

INTELLIGENT NETWORKS CS-1 INAP CALL FLOW


Virtual On-Net: Frequently called non-VPN-subscribers can be added to a VPN group by having member type called the Virtual member. VPN group actual members will be able to dial-out to this Virtual member as though making short digit dialing of an OnNet call. However, the Virtual-members will not be able to access the VPN services, like dialing directly into subscribers of the VPN group using short digit. A different tariff rate can be applied. Other features of VPN include: Auto call back Call Forwarding (SCP based) Call Transfer (TRA) Follow Me (FMD) Call Waiting (CW) Call Hold (CHA) Call Queueing (QUE) Consultation Call (COC) Priority assignment to VPN terminals Multi-party conferencing PIN change facility Follow on On-Net calls Voice Dialling Customised ringing (CRG)

1.23 Service Function


When the toll free service is invoked, the FSC/SSP (or ILT) analyzes the called party number and determines that it is a VPN call and routes it to the VPN service logic in the SCP for further call processing. In SCP, the called party, calling party information together with service key is analysed and if the criterias are met, the call is completed and all the charges are applied to the called party. VPN service employs specific dialed digit pattern using short codes for each VPN group member. Statically Armed Virtual Private Network Trigger Triggers for VPN Service are armed on a per subscriber basis. For normal VPN calls within VPN premise, many implementations exist (criterias like calling party number, access code, class of service) but the approach based on class of service (subscriber, trunk or private facility class of service) at Detection Point 1 is preferred.

12.0 Televoting 1.25 Service Description


This service allows the subscriber to propose a phone voting, the user being asked either to ring a specific number according to his choice, or to ring a unique number and, after prompting, to give his choice by keyboard or by voice dialogue. Televoting enables subscribers to survey public opinion using the telephone network. Persons wishing to respond to an opinion poll can call advertised Televoting numbers to register their votes. The charging is to the discretion of the service subscriber. Using this service, the network operator can temporarily allocate directory numbers to the served user. Each time a call is made to one of the numbers by an end user, the user will be played an announcement acknowledging the call, and a count of calls made to this number will be incremented. When Televoting has ceased, the network operator will supply details of the total numbers of calls made to each number to the served user and the special numbers will be reallocated. Calls made to these special numbers may be charged at varying rates.

This parameter indicates a text string to be sent to the end-user. This information cannot be received by a PSTN end-user. This parameter provides number of counters to be allocated as well as number of destinations included in the service filtering, i.e. maximumNumberOfCounters subsequent destination addresses beginning with the destination address provided in filtering criteria are used for service filtering. One counter is assigned to each of these destination addresses. The number of counters may only be >1 if the 'filteringCriteria' are of the type 'addressAndService'. This parameter provides the cause value used for call release after the 'informationToSend' (for example announcement) has been sent to the calling party. This parameter indicates the severity of the filtering and the point in time when the 'ServiceFilteringResponse' shall be sent. It determines whether the 'interval' or the 'numberOfCalls' are used. After expiration of the interval timer, the next call to arrive causes following actions. 1. sending of an 'InitialDP' or a DP-specific operation 2. sending of a 'ServiceFilteringResponse' 3. starting again the interval timer. When filtering is started the first interval is started An interval of 0 indicates that all calls matching the filtering criteria will result in sending of an 'InitialDP' or a DP-specific operation and no filtering will be applied (i.e. no 'ServiceFilteringResponse'

CollectInformation

The CollectInformation is a class 2 operation which is used by the SCF to request the call to return to the Collect_Information PIC, and then perform the basic originating call processing actions associated with this PIC (e.g. the checking of information in the CalledPartyNumber parameter with the supported dialling plan). This operation uses only the resources of the SSF-CCF to collect the information. The use of this operation is only appropriate for a call which had not yet left the set-up phase. When the user provides calledPartyNumber, Collect_Information PIC processing includes collecting of destination information from a calling party. When the calledPartyNumber is included (as dialledDigits) in the Collect_Information operation, further collection is not performed (e.g. SSF-CCF checks the provided calledPartyNumber against the supported dialling plan).

Connect

This operation is used to request the SSF to perform the call processing actions to route a call to a specific destination. To do so, the SSF may use destination information from the calling party (e.g. dialled digits) and existing call set-up information (e.g. route index to a list of trunk groups) depending on the information provided by the SCF. In general, all parameters which are provided in a Connect operation to the SSF shall replace the corresponding signalling parameter in the CCF, if the relevant parameter has already been received in the CCF, and shall be used for subsequent call processing.

A specific pattern used to alert a subscriber (e.g. distinctive ringing, tones, etc.). Recommendation Q.931 refers. It only applies if the network signalling support this parameter or if SSF is the terminating local exchange for the subscriber. This parameter is used by the SCF to associate the 'AssistRequestInstructions' operation from the assisting SSF with the Request from the initiating SSF. The 'correlationID' is used in the context of a hand-off procedure and only if the correlation id is not embedded in the 'destinationRoutingAddress'. The network operator has to decide about the actual mapping of this parameter on the used signalling system. This parameter is used by the SCF to instruct the SSF to delete (cut) a specified number of leading digits that it has received from the calling party and to paste the remaining dialled digits on to the end of the digits supplied by the SCF in the 'destinationRoutingAddress'

DisconnectForwardConnection

This operation is used in the following two cases: 1. To clear a connection to a SRF This operation is used to explicitly disconnect a connection to a resource (SRF) established previously with a 'ConnectToResource' or an 'EstablishTemporaryConnection' operation. It is used for a forward disconnection from the SSF. An alternative solution is the backward disconnect from the SRF, controlled by the 'DisconnectFromIPForbidden' parameter in the 'PlayAnnouncement' and 'PromptAndCollectUserInformation' operations. 2. To clear a connection to an assisting SSF This operation is sent to the non-assisting SSF of a pair of SSFs involved in an assist procedure. It is used to disconnect the temporary connection between the initiating SSF and the assisting SSF, and the assisting SSF and its associated SRF.

FurnishChargingInformation

This operation is used to request the SSF to generate, register a call record or to include some information in the default call record. The registered call record is intended for off-line charging of the call. A possibility exists for the FurnishChargingInformation (FCI) operation to be invoked on multiple occasions. FCI could be applied at the beginning of the call in order to request to start call record generation. In addition FCI can also be applied at the end of the call or connection configuration (e.g. for follow-on calls). In this case FCI is used to include charge related information into the call record which was started at the beginning of the call. When additional FCIs are used it is recommended to arm an EDP-R (indicating the end of call or connection configuration) to be able to apply FCI before the termination of the call record generation. The charging scenarios supported by this operation are: 2.2, 2.3 and 2.4 (refer to Appendix II/Q.1214, "Charging scenarios").

when the inter-digit timer expire when the end of reply digit is received when the number of valid digits received equals the "maximumNbOfDigits" When the end of input is attained, the collected digits are send from SRF to the SCF, including the "endOfReplyDigit" if received by the SRF In the case the number of valid digits received is less than the "minimumNbOfDigits" when the inter-digit timer expires or when the end of reply digit is received, the input is specified as being erroneous If this parameter is present, the cancel digit can be entered by the user to request a possible retry. All digits already received by the SRF are discarded and the same "PromptAndCollectInformation" procedure is performed again, thus, e.g. the same announcement to request user information is given to the user and information is collected. This parameter can be one or two digits If this parameter is not present, the user is not able to request a possible retry If this parameter is present, the start digit indicates the start of the valid digits to be collected. The digits that are received by the SRF before this start digit is received, are discarded and are not considered to be valid. This parameter can be one or two digits. If this parameter is not present, all received digits are considered to be valid If this parameter is present, the first digit should be received by the SRF before the first-digit timer expiration. In case the first digit is not received before first-digit timer expiration, the input is regarded to be erroneous. After receipt of the first valid or nonvalid input digit, the corresponding first-digit timer is stopped If this parameter is not present, then the SRF uses a default value (network operator specific) for the first-digit timer in which the first valid or non-valid input digit is received If "startDigit" is present, the first-digit timer is stopped after the start digit is received If this parameter is present any subsequent valid or non-valid digit should be received by the SRF before the inter-digit timer expires.

In case a subsequent valid or non-valid digit is not received before the inter-digit timer expires and the number of received valid digits is less than the "minimumNbOfDigits", the input is regarded to be unsuccessful In case a subsequent valid or non-valid digit is not received before the inter-digit timer expires and the number of received valid digits is greater than the "minimumNbOfDigits", and less than or equal to the "maximumNbOfDigits", the input is regarded to be successful. If the "interDigitTimeOut" is not present, then the SRF uses a default value for the inter-digit time This optional parameter defines what specific action should be taken by the SRF in the event of error conditions occurring. The default value is reportErrorToSCF This parameter is optional, where the default value is specified being TRUE If this parameter is TRUE, the announcement is interrupted after the first valid or non-valid digit is received by the SRF. If the announcement is interrupted, a possible start-digit timer will not apply anymore. However, if the announcement has not been interrupted, a possible start-digit timer is started after the announcement has been finished If this parameter is present and explicitly set to FALSE, the announcement will not be interrupted after the first digit is received by the SRF. The received digits during the announcement are discarded and considered to be non-valid. All other specified parameters ("minimumNbOfDigits", "maximumNbOfDigits", "endOfReplyDigit", etc.) do not apply before the announcement has been finished.
