3.1 Definitions

For the purposes of the present document the following definitions apply. Additional applicable definitions can be found in 3GPP TS 22.060 [3] and 3GPP TS 25.401 [14].

GPRS: Packet Services for GSM and UMTS systems.

(GSM only): indicates that this clause or paragraph applies only to a GSM system. For multi-system cases this is determined by the current serving radio access network.

(UMTS only): indicates that this clause or paragraph applies only to a UMTS system. For multi-system cases this is determined by the current serving radio access network.

In GSM,…: indicates that this paragraph applies only to GSM System. For multi system cases this is determined by the current serving radio access network.

In UMTS,…: indicates that this paragraph applies only to UMTS System. For multi system cases this is determined by the current serving radio access network.

inter-system change: a change of radio access between different radio access technologies such as GSM and UMTS.

MS: the present document makes no distinction between MS and UE.

2G‑ / 3G : The prefixes 2G‑ and 3G‑ refer to functionality that supports only GSM or UMTS, respectively, e.g. 2G‑SGSN refers only to the GSM functionality of an SGSN. When the prefix is omitted, reference is made independently from the GSM or UMTS functionality.

3.3 Symbols

For the purposes of the present document the following symbols apply:

A Interface between an MSC and a BSC.

Ga Charging data collection interface between a CDR transmitting unit (e.g. GGSN or SGSN) and a CDR receiving functionality (CGF).

Gb Interface between an SGSN and a BSC.

Gc Interface between an GGSN and an HLR.

Gd Interface between an SMS-GMSC and an SGSN, and between a SMS-IWMSC and an SGSN.

Gf Interface between an SGSN and an EIR.

Gi Reference point between GPRS and an external packet data network.

Gn Interface between two GSNs within the same PLMN.

Gp Interface between two GSNs in different PLMNs. The Gp interface allows support of GPRS network services across areas served by the co-operating GPRS PLMNs.

Gr Interface between an SGSN and an HLR.

Gs Interface between an SGSN and an MSC/VLR.

Iu Interface between the RNS and the core network. It is also considered as a reference point.

kbit/s Kilobits per second.

Mbit/s Megabits per second. 1 Mbit/s = 1 million bits per second.

R Reference point between a non-ISDN compatible TE and MT. Typically this reference point supports a standard serial interface.

Reporting Area The service area for which an MS’s location shall be reported.

Service Area The location accuracy level needed for service management purposes in the 3G‑SGSN, e.g. a routing area or a cell. The 3G‑SGSN can request the SRNC to report: i) the MS’s current service area; ii) when the MS moves into a given service area; or iii) when the MS moves out of a given service area.

Um Interface between the Mobile Station (MS) and the GSM fixed network part. The Um interface is the GSM network interface for providing GPRS services over the radio to the MS. The MT part of the MS is used to access the GPRS services in GSM through this interface.

Uu Interface between the Mobile Station (MS) and the UMTS fixed network part. The Uu interface is the UMTS network interface for providing GPRS services over the radio to the MS. The MT part of the MS is used to access the GPRS services in UMTS through this interface.
