04.883GPPCall Barring (CB) supplementary servicesStage 3TS

The present document specifies the procedures used at the radio interface (reference point Um as defined in GSM 04.02) for normal operation, registration, erasure, activation, deactivation, invocation and interrogation of call barring supplementary services. Provision and withdrawal of supplementary services is an administrative matter between the mobile subscriber and the service provider and cause no signalling on the radio interface.

In GSM 04.10 the general aspects of the specification of supplementary services at the layer 3 radio interface are given.

GSM 04.80 specifies the formats and coding for the supplementary services.

Definitions and descriptions of supplementary services are given in GSM 02.04, GSM 02.8x and GSM 02.9x‑series.

Technical realization of supplementary services is described in GSM 03.11, GSM 03.8x and GSM 03.9x‑series.

The procedures for Call Control, Mobility Management and Radio Resource management at the layer 3 radio interface are defined in GSM 04.07 and GSM 04.08.

The following supplementary services belong to the call restriction supplementary services and are described in this specification:

– Barring of outgoing calls (clause 1):
– Barring of all outgoing calls (BAOC) (Barring program 1);
– Barring of outgoing international calls (BOIC) (Barring program 2);
– Barring of outgoing international calls EXCEPT those directed to the home PLMN country
(BOIC-exHC) (Barring program 3).

– Barring of incoming calls (clause 2):
– Barring of all incoming calls (BAIC) (Barring program 1);
– Barring of incoming calls when roaming outside the home PLMN country
(BIC-Roam) (Barring program 2).

0.3 Cross phase compatibility

For the following supplementary services, a number of changes exist between this specification and the protocol version 1 specification:

– Barring of outgoing calls;

– Barring of incoming calls.

The main body of this specification assumes that all network entities comply with this version of the service. In each case an additional subclauses 1.7 and 2.7 defines the additional requirements for when one or more network entities or the MS complies with the protocol version 1 specifications for the supplementary service procedures.
