Chapter 7 Ring Back Tone Service


7.1 Service Description
7.1.1 Service Functions
The color ring back tone (CRBT) service is a type of intelligent service for the called. When the subscriber registered with the CRBT service is called by other subscribers, they will hear the customer-defined characteristic ring back tone, not the traditional tone sent by the exchanges. The CRBT supported by the MSOFTX3000 includes voice and video. The former can be songs, music and record; the latter can be video record. Subscribers can customize the CRBT in specific time segment for specific callers or subscriber group through WWW, special service telephone and WAP.

7.1.2 Service Environment


According to the implementation of the CRBT service, the CRBT service falls into two types: CRBT service with alternative route, CRBT service without alternative route. The CRBT service without alternative route falls also into two types: the calling exchange solution and the called exchange solution. The MSFTX3000 supports the following six CRBT service triggering modes:
z

Calling exchange NPI: the calling MSC triggers the CRBT service by the roaming number identifier (obtained from the HLR). Calling exchange SS_CODE: the calling MSC triggers the CRBT service by the supplementary service code. Called exchange SS_CODE: the called MSC triggers the CRBT service by the supplementary service code. AIP prefix triggering-GMSC: to avoid the alternative route restricting the AIP, the CRBT service is triggered by the GMSC. This mode is seldom used. WIN ALERTING PATTERN: for Thailand. WIN CONNECT: Use the intelligent network to trigger the CRBT service.

I. CRBT Service with Alternative Route


During the initial stage of the CRBT application, usually the CRBT platform is used to forward the CRBT call. The network element broadcasting the color ring back tone is called the ring back tone server. Figure 7-1 shows the networking.

Figure 7-1 Networking of the CRBT service with alternative route In this networking, the MSOFTX3000 works as the (G)MSC Server, the UMG8900 works as the MGW. Both of them work as the calling (G)MSC. The CRBT is implemented as follows.
z z

The HLR sets the special subscription information for CRBT subscribers. After the (G)MSC obtains the route information, it will judge whether the called subscriber is the CRBT subscriber based on the called subscription information sent from the HLR. If yes, the (G)MSC will route the call to the CRBT service platform of the called.

The CRBT service platform bridges the call to the called MSC/VLR, and replaces the traditional ring back tone sent by the called MSC/VLR with the customer-defined ring back tone.

During the call, the CRBT service platform keeps the call in the bridged status.

The advantage of this solution is: there is little change to the existing network. The disadvantage is: the route shall be forwarded to the CBRT service platform, which shall occupy a great number of trunk circuits. Moreover, there shall be the voice circuit bottle net at the CBRT service platform. This solution is suitable for the initial stage of the CBRT service when there are not so many subscribers.

II. CRBT Service without Alternative Route


With the more and more widely application of the CBRT service, the CBRT service without alternative route is developed. The CRBT service without alternative route falls also into two types: the calling exchange solution and the called exchange solution. 1) Calling exchange solution In this solution, the CBRT service is triggered at the calling (G)MSC side, as shown in Figure 7-2.

Figure 7-2 Calling exchange solution In this networking, the CBRT is implemented as follows:
z z

The HLR sets the special subscription information for CRBT subscribers. After the (G)MSC obtains the route information, it will judge whether the called subscriber is the CRBT subscriber based on the called subscription information sent from the HLR.

If the called is the CBRT subscriber, create the connection between the call and the called MSC. The called MSC returns the ring signaling, and broadcasts the common ring back tone. After the calling (G)MSC receives the ring signaling, it will screen the common ring back tone broadcasted by the called MSC. The (G)MSC originates a call to the CRBT service platform, and bypasses the call to the platform.

z z

The CRBT service platform broadcasts the customer-defined CRBT. After the called answers the call, the calling (G)MSC disconnects the circuit to the CRBT service platform, and connects to the circuit to the called MSC. The calling and called communicate by the normal procedure. Called exchange solution

In this solution, the CBRT service is triggered at the called MSC side, as shown in Figure 7-3.

Figure 7-3 Called exchange solution In this networking, the CBRT service is implemented also in the same way as the calling exchange solution. The difference is that the CBRT subscriber is identified by the subscription information stored in the VLR of the called MSC. The subscription information is sent to the called MSC from the HLR during the position update procedure.

7.2 Signaling Procedure


7.2.1 Alternative Route Solution
The signaling procedure of the MSC in the CBRT service with the alternative route is the same as that in the common call procedure. The only difference is: the MSC routes the calls of CBRT subscribers to the CBRT service platform.

7.2.2 Calling Exchange Solution


Figure 7-4 shows the signaling procedure of the calling exchange solution for the CBRT service without alternative route.

Figure 7-4 Signaling procedure of the calling exchange solution The following describes the signaling procedure: 1) 2) 3) 4) 5) The calling MSC receives the Setup message of the calling subscriber; or the GMSC receives the IAM signaling coming from another network. The calling (G)MSC originates the SRI operation to the called HLR after the calling (G)MSC determines the called number is the MSISDN. The HLR originates the PRN operation to the called MSC. After the called MSC allocates the MSRN for the called, it will return the PRN ack (containing the MSRN) to the HLR. The HLR returns the SRI ack to the MSC. The SRI ack contains the MSRN and special subscription information of the CRBT service. At present, there are two types of subscription information. One is to set the supplementary service code to 254, the other is to set the MSRN coding plan to 2.

The calling MSC adds the CBRT tag to the call according to the special subscription information of the CBRT service, and sends the IAM to the called MSC through the MSRN.

7) 8) 9)

After the called MSC receives the call response from the called subscriber, the called MSC will sends the Setup message to the called subscriber. After the called is connected successfully, it will ring, and return the Alerting message. The called MSC returns the ACM to the calling (G)MSC. The subscriber is idle. The called MSC begins broadcasting the common ring back tone.

10) The calling MSC sends the Altering message to the calling mobile subscriber, or the GMSC sends the ACM to exchanges in other networks. 11) The calling (G)MSC bypasses the circuit connected to the called MSC according to the CBRT tag set in Step 6. At the same time, the calling (G)MSC sends the IAM to the CBRT platform. The called number is route prefix + called MSISDN. 12) The CBRT service platform returns the ACM to the calling (G)MSC according to the CBRT voice code. 13) The CBRT service platform returns the ANM to the calling (G)MSC, and begins broadcasting the CBRT. In some carriers, the CBRT service platform does not returns the ANM, but broadcasts the CBRT directly. At this time, the calling subscriber can hear the customer-defined CBRT. 14) After the called answers, it will send the Connect message to the called MSC. 15) The called MSC returns the ANM to the calling (G)MSC. 16) The calling MSC sends the Connect message to the calling subscriber, or the GMSC sends the ANM to exchanges in other networks. At the same time, the calling (G)MSC bypasses the CBRT circuit, and connects to the circuit of the called MSC so that the calling and called can communicate with each other. 17) The calling (G)MSC sends the REL to the CBRT service platform to disconnect the circuit. The release cause value is Normal. 18) The CBRT service platform returns the release acknowledgement message RLC.

7.2.3 Called Exchange Solution


The signaling procedure of the called exchange solution for the CBRT service without alternative route is almost the same as that of the calling exchange solution. The mainly difference is: the CBRT service is triggered at the called MSC, and the called MSC obtains the called subscriber data from the VLR. The CBRT service is identified by the specific supplementary service code.
