4.1 Introduction

The Communications Diversion (CDIV) services enables diverting user, to divert the communications addressed to diverting user to an other destination.

4.2 Description

4.2.1 General description

The service description of the following Communication Services CFU, CFB, CFNR, CFNRc and CD are based on the PSTN/ISDN Supplementary Services.

Generally the following requirements should be fulfilled:

  • It shall be possible for the user or the network to identify an alternative destination for an IP multimedia session or individual media of an IP multimedia session.
  • It shall be possible for redirection to be initiated at various stages of an IP Multimedia session. For example:
  • Prior to the set up of an IP Multimedia session.
  • During the initial request for an IP Multimedia session (CFU).
  • During the establishment of an IP Multimedia session (CD).
  • Redirection can be applied for all Multimedia sessions unconditionally or it can be caused by any of a set list of events or conditions. Typical causes could be:
  • Identity of the originating user.
  • Presence of the originating or destination party.
  • If the destination party is already in a session (CFB).
  • If the destination party is unreachable or unavailable in some other way (CFNL, CFNR, CFNRc).
  • If the destination party does not respond (CFNR).
  • After a specified alerting interval (CFNR).
  • User’s preference on routing for specific IP Multimedia session based on the capabilities of multiple UEs sharing the same IMS service subscription.
  • The sending party, receiving party or the network on their behalf, may initiate redirection to alternative destinations.

The following services describe applications based on a subset of the above-mentioned requirements to provide user different possibilities to divert a communication.

It should be possible that a user has the option to restrict receiving communications that are forwarded.

Communication Forwarding Unconditional (CFU)

The CFU service enables a served user to have the network redirect to another user communications which are addressed to the served user’s address. The CFU service may operate on all communication, or just those associated with specified services. The served user’s ability to originate communications is unaffected by the CFU supplementary service. After the CFU service has been activated, communications are forwarded independent of the status of the served user.

As a service provider option, a subscription option can be provided to enable the served user to receive an indication that the CFU service has been activated. This indication shall be provided when the served user originates a communication if the CFU service has been activated for the served user’s address and for the service requested for the communication.

The maximum number of diversions permitted for each communication is a service provider option. The service provider shall define the upper limit of diversions. When counting the number of diversions, all types of diversion are included.

Communication Forwarding on Busy user (CFB)

The CFB service enables a served user to have the network redirect to another user communications which are addressed to the served user’s address and meet busy. The CFB service may operate on all communications, or just those associated with specified services. The served user’s ability to originate communications is unaffected by the CFB supplementary service.

As a service provider option, a subscription option can be provided to enable the served user to receive an indication that the CFB service has been activated. This indication shall be provided when the served user originates a communication if the CFB service has been activated for the served user’s address and for the service requested for the communication.

The maximum number of diversions permitted for each communication is a service provider option. The service provider shall define the upper limit of diversions. When counting the number of diversions, all types of diversion are included.

For more information on the procedures for determination of the busy condition see TS 183 028 [11].

Communication Forwarding on No Reply (CFNR)

The CFNR service enables a served user to have the network redirect to another user communications which are addressed to the served user’s address, and for which the connection is not established within a defined period of time. The CFNR service may operate on all communications, or just those associated with specified services. The served user’s ability to originate communications is unaffected by the CFNR supplementary service.

The CFNR service can only be invoked by the network after the communication has been offered to the served user and an indication that the called user is being informed of the communication has been received.

As a service provider option, a subscription option can be provided to enable the served user to receive an indication that the CFNR service has been activated. This indication shall be provided when the served user originates a communication if the CFNR service has been activated for the served user’s address and for the service requested for the communication.

The maximum number of diversions permitted for each communication is a service provider option. The service provider shall define the upper limit of diversions. When counting the number of diversions, all types of diversion are included.

Communication Forwarding on Subscriber Not Reachable (CFNRc)

The CFNRc service enables an user to have the network redirect all incoming communications, when the user is not reachable (e.g. there is no IP connectivity to the user’s terminal), to another user. The CFNRc service may operate on all communications, or just those associated with specified services. The user’s ability to originate communications is unaffected by the CFNRc simulation service.

As a service provider option, a subscription option can be provided to enable the user to receive an indication that the CFNRc service has been activated. This indication may be provided when the user originates a communication if the CFNRc service has been activated for the user and for the service requested for the communication.

The maximum number of diversions permitted for each communication is a service provider option. The service provider shall define the upper limit of diversions. When counting the number of diversions, all types of diversion are included.

Communication Deflection (CD)

The CD service enables the served user to respond to an incoming communication by requesting redirection of that communication to another user. The CD service can only be invoked before the connection is established by the served user, i.e. in response to the offered communication (before ringing), i.e. CD Immediate, or during the period that the served user is being informed of the communication (during ringing). The served user’s ability to originate communications is unaffected by the CD supplementary service.

The maximum number of diversions permitted for each communication is a network provider option. The network provider shall define the upper limit of diversions. When counting the number of diversions, all types of diversion are included.

Communication Forwarding on Not Logged-in (CFNL)

The Communication Forwarding on Not Logged-in (CFNL) service enables a served user to redirect incoming communications which are addressed to the served user’s address, to another user (forwarded-to address) in case the served user is not registered (logged-in). The CFNL service may operate on all communications, or just those associated with specified basic services.

As a service provider option, a subscription option can be provided to enable the served user to receive an indication that the CFNL service has been activated. This indication shall be provided when the served user logs out according to procedures described in RFC 3261 [6].

The maximum number of diversions permitted for each communication is a service provider option. The service provider shall define the upper limit of diversions. When counting the number of diversions, all types of diversion are included.

4.3 Operational requirements

4.3.1 Provision/withdrawal

The CDIV services (Communication forwarding unconditional, Communication forwarding busy, Communication forwarding no reply, Communication forwarding not logged-in and Communication deflection) shall be provided after prior arrangement with the service provider.

The CDIV services shall be withdrawn at the served user’s request or for administrative reasons.

The five simulation services can be offered separately with subscription options. For each subscription option, only one value can be selected. These subscription options are part of the call diversion profile for the served user. The subscription options are shown in table 4.3.1.1.

4.5.2 Invocation and operation

4.5.2.1 Actions at the originating UA

When communication diversion has occurred on the served user side and the network option "Originating" user receives notification that his communication has been diverted (forwarded or deflected)" is set to true, the originating UA may receive a 181 (Call is being forwarded) response according to the procedures described in ES 283 003 [2].

The Information given by the History header could be displayed by the UA if it is a UE.

4.5.2.2 Actions at the originating P-CSCF

Procedures according to ES 283 003 [2] shall apply.

4.5.2.3 Actions at the originating S-CSCF

Procedures according to ES 283 003 [2] shall apply.

Procedures according to ES 283 003 [2] shall apply.

NOTE: An example of the use of IFC is shown in annex B.

4.5.2.5 Actions at the diverted to S-CSCF

Procedures according to ES 283 003 [2] shall apply.

4.5.2.6 Actions at the AS of the diverting User

4.5.2.6.1 Checking of the diversion limits

When receiving an INVITE request and the AS determines that the AS shall divert a communicationthe AS shall check if diverting the communication exceeds the number of diversions allowed within the network. The AS shall calculate the number of diversions by examination of the History-Info header field:

– using the entries including a cause-param URI parameter with cause values specified in subclause 4.5.2.6.2.2; or

– examining the entries in the Index entries parameter

to see if another diversion is allowed due to network provider allowed limit of diversions.

If the number of diversions exceeds the given limit then the following response sent to the originating user shall apply:

a) communication diversion forwarding busy a 486 (Busy here) shall be sent;

b) communication forwarding no reply, 480 (Temporarily unavailable) shall be sent;

c) communication forwarding unconditional 480 (Temporarily unavailable) shall be sent;

d) communication deflection, 480 (Temporarily unavailable) shall be sent.

NOTE: It is based on operator policy that the communication can be delivered to the latest diverting party when it is known.

In all cases a Warning header field indicating that the communication is released due to the extension of diversion hops (e.g. "Too many diversions appeared") shall be sent.

4.5.2.6.2 Setting of the diversion parameters by the AS

4.5.2.6.2.1 Overview

After checking the limit of diversions the following settings of the INVITE request shall be performed.

4.5.2.6.2.2 Diversion without served user in received History-Info header

If an AS determines that the AS shall divert a communication the AS shall apply the procedures in the present subclause if any of the following conditions apply for the received INVITE request:

– no History-Info header field received; or

– a History-Info header field is received in which no hi-targeted-to-uri element for the served user is contained.

The following information is to be set in the retargeted request:

– the diverting parties address;

– the diverted-to party address;

– diversion information.

The following header fields shall be included or modified with the specified values:

a) The Request URI – shall be set to the public user identity where the communication is to be diverted to. The AS shall add the cause-param as defined by RFC 4458[14] to the request URI. The mapping between the diversion conditions and the coding of the cause-param parameter values as defined by RFC 4458[14] shall be as follows:

– for communication forwarding busy, the cause value "486";

– for communication forwarding no reply, the cause value "408";

– for communication forwarding unconditional, the cause value "302";

– for communication deflection (Immediate Response), the cause value "480":

– for communication forwarding not logged in , the cause value "404";

– for communication deflection during alerting, the cause value "487"; and

– for communication forwarding on subscriber not reachable, the cause value "503".

b) The History-Info Header field – Two hist-info entries that shall be generated in accordance with RFC 4244 [3].

b.1) The first entry includes the hi-targeted-to-uri of the served user.

The privacy header "history" shall be escaped within the hi-targeted-to-uri, if:

– the served user wishes privacy (e.g. the served user is subscribed to the OIR Service); or

– the served user has the subscription option "Served user allows the presentation of his/her URI to diverted‑to user" set to false.

If the diversion is based on a SIP response from the served user, a Reason header as defined in RFC 3326 [17A] shall be included in escaped form in the hi-targeted-to-uriin accordance with RFC 4244 [3].

b.2) The second entry includes the new Request URI as described under bullet a) as hi-targeted-to-uri.

NOTE: In accordance with RFC 4458 [14], hi-targeted-to-uri will contain a cause-param in non-escaped format.

c) The To header field – If the served user does not want to reveal its identity to the diverted-to party, then the To header shall be changed the URI where the communication is diverted to. The served user does not want to reveal its identity when one of the following conditions holds true:

– if the served user wishes privacy (e.g. the served user is subscribed to the OIR Service); or

– if the served used has the subscription option "Served user allows the presentation of his/her URI to diverted‑to user" set to false.

In all other cases the To header shall not be changed.

4.5.2.6.2.3 Diversion with served user in received History-Info header

If an AS determines that the communication shall be diverted the AS shall apply the procedures in the present subclause if the received INVITE request includes a History-Info header field, which includes a hi-targeted-to-uri with an entry for the served user. In this case the AS shall add a new history-info entry to the History-Info header field according to the rules defined in RFC 4244 [3]. The following information has to be added to the retargeted request:

– the diverted-to party address;

– diversion information.

The following header fields shall be included or modified with the specified values:

a) Request URI – shall be set to the public user identity where the communication is to be diverted.

The AS shall add the cause-param as defined by RFC 4458 [14] to the request URI. The mapping between the diversion conditions and the coding of the cause-param parameter shall be as defined under bullet a in Clause 4.5.2.6.2.2.

b) History-Info Header shall be modified in accordance with RFC 4244 [3]. The history entry corresponding to the previous request URI can be modified. One history entry is added.

b.1) The existing history entry corresponding to the previous request URI representing the served user shall be treated as follows.

The privacy header "history" in escaped format within the hi-targeted-to-uri shall be added or modified, if:

– if the served user wishes privacy (e.g. the served user is subscribed to the OIR Service); or

– if the served used has the subscription option "Served user allows the presentation of his/her URI to diverted‑to user" set to false.

If the privacy header "history" is already contained with the correct privacy value no modification is needed.

If the diversion is based on a SIP response from the served user, a Reason header in escaped form shall be included in accordance with RFC 4244 [3].

b.2) A history entry shall be added containg new Request URI as described under bullet a) as hi-targeted-to-uri

NOTE: In accordance with RFC 4458 [14], hi-targeted-to-uri will contain a cause-param in non-escaped format.

c) To header– If the served user does not want to reveal its identity to the diverted-to party, then the To header shall be changed the URI where the communication is diverted to. The served user does not want to reveal its identity when one of the following conditions holds true:

  • if the served user wishes privacy (e.g. the served user is subscribed to the OIR Service); or
  • if the served used has the subscription option "Served user allows the presentation of his/her URI to diverted‑to user" set to false.

In all other cases the To header shall not be changed.

4.5.2.6.3 Diversion procedures at the diverting AS

The diverting AS shall continue the communication depending on the service that is causing the diversion:

1) Communication Forwarding Unconditional (CFU) or Communication Forwarding Busy (CFB) network determined user busy or Communication Forwarding on Not Logged in (CFNL)

The AS shall continue in the following manner:

  • If the notification procedure of the originating user is supported then the originating user shall be notified as described in clause 4.5.2.6.4.
  • An INVITE request containing the diverted-to URI shall sent to the (outgoing) S-CSCF. The INVITE request shall includes the parameter information as shown in table 4.5.2.6.2.4.1 and described in clause 4.5.2.6.2.

2) Communication Forwarding No Reply (CFNR)

After receiving the first 180 (Ringing) response the no reply timer (definition see clause 4.8) shall be started. If forking is provided by the S-CSCF a further received 180 (Ringing) response does not refresh the timer.

With receiving a 200 (OK) response the no reply timer shall be terminated and the call follows the Basic call procedure as described within ES 283 003 [2]. Other open early dialogs shall be terminated as described within ES 283 003 [2], clause 9.2.3.

When the no reply timer defined in clause 4.8 expires:

  • The dialog(s) to the diverting user shall be terminated e.g. by sending a CANCEL request or BYE request according to the rules and procedures in RFC 3261 [6].
  • If the notification procedure of the originating user is supported then the originating user shall be notified as described in clause 4.5.2.6.4.
  • An INVITE request is sent to the (outgoing) S-CSCF towards the diverted-to user. The INVITE request includes the parameter information as shown in table 4.5.2.6.2.4.1.

3) Communication Forwarding No Reply (CFNR) (ringing continues)

After receiving the first 180 (Ringing) response the no reply timer (definition see clause 4.8) shall be started. If forking is provided by the S-CSCF a further received 180 (Ringing) response does not refresh the timer.

When the diverted-to-user has accepted the communication request (with 200 OK) and if the notification procedures of the originating user is supported then the originating user shall be notified as described in clause 4.5.2.6.4.

An INVITE is sent to the outgoing S-CSCF towards the diverted to user. The INVITE address message includes the parameter information as shown in table 4.5.2.6.2.4.1.

If diverting user accepts the communication after sending the INVITE request the communication path towards the diverted to user shall be released according to the rules and procedures in RFC 3261 [6].

4) Communication Forwarding user determined Busy (CFB)

The Communication Forwarding User Determined Busy is offered to the served user when the AS:

  • The received 486 Busy shall be acknowledged with a ACK.
  • If the notification procedures of the originating user are supported then the originating user shall be notified as described in clause 4.5.2.6.4.
  • An INVITE message containing the diverted-to URI is sent to the outgoing S-CSCF. The INVITE address message includes the parameter information as shown in table 4.5.2.6.2.4.1.

5) Communication Deflection (CD) immediate response

The Communication Deflection immediate response is offered to the served user.

A 302 (Moved Temporarily) response is received.

If the notification procedures of the originating user are supported then the originating user shall be notified as described in clause 4.5.2.6.4.

An INVITE message containing the diverted-to URI is sent to the outgoing S-CSCF. The INVITE address message includes the parameter information as shown in table 4.5.2.6.2.4.1.

6) Communication Forwarding on subscriber Not Reachable (CFNRc)

When the AS receives a not reachable indication (see clause 4.5.2.6.6) on the INVITE forwarded to the served user, then the following criteria shall apply before the Communication Forwarding on Subscriber Not Reachable procedure is executed:

  • the served user has an active forwarding rule containing not-reachable condition (see clause 4.9); and
  • the served user is registered.

The following steps shall be followed to perform Communication Forwarding on Subscriber Not Reachable:

1) If the notification procedures of the originating user are supported then the originating user shall be notified as described in clause 4.5.2.6.4.

2) An INVITE message containing the diverted-to URI is sent to the outgoing S-CSCF. The INVITE address message includes the parameter information as shown in table 4.5.2.6.2.4.1.

4.5.2.6.4 Notification procedures of the originating user (Subscription Option)

When Communication Diversion occurs and if served user has the subscription option "Originating user receives notification that his communication has been diverted (forwarded or deflected)." set to true then a 181 (Call Is Being Forwarded) response shall be sent towards the originating user.

The following header fields shall be included or modified with the specified values:

a) The P-Asserted-Identity includes the URI of the diverting user.

b) The Privacy header with the value "id" shall be included, if:

  • the served user wishes privacy (e.g. the served user is subscribed to the TIR Service); or
  • the served used has the subscription option "Served user allows the presentation of his/her URI to originating user in diversion notification." set to false.

c) The following entries shall be added to the History-Info header field:

c.1) If this is the first diversion then the first entry shall be populated with the hi-targeted-to-uri of the served user. The Index is set to index = 1 according to the rules specified in RFC 4244 [3].

c.2) On the history entry that represents the served user, the privacy header with value "history" shall be escaped within the hi-targeted-to-uri, if:

  • the served user wishes privacy (e.g. the served user is subscribed to the TIR Service); or
  • the served used has the subscription option "Served user allows the presentation of his/her URI to originating user in diversion notification." set to false;
  • if the history is already escaped with the correct privacy value no modification is needed;
  • in all other cases the history entry representing the served user shall not be changed.

c.3) A history entry shall be added according to the rules of clause 4.5.6.2.3 item b.2. For this entry the privacy header with value "history" shall be escaped within the hi-targeted-to-uri.

Additional the AS may initiate an announcement to be included towards the calling user in order to inform about the about the diversion. Announcements may be played according to procedures as are described in TS 183 028 [11].

4.5.2.6.5 Indication of communication diversion to the diverting user (Subscription Option)

If the subscription option "Served user receives notification that a communication has been forwarded" has been set to "yes", one or a combination of the following procedures are possible:

1) When the diverting user is registering the AS send a MESSAGE request including the information where the call is diverted too. As an Option the MESSAGE request that is be sent due to a timer value that can be provided by the user.

2) A diverting user will be informed periodically with a MESSAGE request the information where the call is diverted too.

NOTE 1: A diverting user could be informed via a Voicemail or Message mail system in the communication states described above.

If the subscription option "Served user receives reminder notification on outgoing communication that CDIV is currently activated" has been set to "yes", then a diverting user will be informed with a MESSAGE request after the diverting user has initiated a new outgoing communication. the information where the call is diverted too.

NOTE 2: A diverting user could be informed via a Voicemail or Message mail system in the communication states described above.

The description of information text contained in the MESSAGE request is out of scope of the present document.

4.5.2.6.6 Not reachable indication

It is recommended that the AS interprets the reception of one of the following response events as not reachable indication:

  • 408 Request timeout response;

4.5.2.7 Actions at the AS of the diverted to User

The AS shall store the History Header of an incoming Request.

If a 180, 181 or 200 response does not contain a History header field, the AS shall include the stored History header field and if diverted to user is subscribed to the TIR service the Privacy header field of all responses the priv-value of the last entry in the History header field shall be set to "history".

NOTE: A response including no History header Field is coming from an untrusted entity or the History header field is not included due to the privacy status within the SIP request.

4.6 Interaction with other services

4.6.1 Communication Hold (HOLD)

No impact, i.e. neither service shall affect the operation of the other service.

4.6.2 Terminating Identification Presentation (TIP)

A P-Asserted-Identity and History header field received in the diverting AS is passed unmodified to the originating entity. The originating S-CSCF is responsible of the interpretation of the privacy header field.

4.6.3 Terminating Identification Restriction (TIR)

A P-Asserted-Identity and History header field received in the diverting AS is passed unmodified to the originating entity. The originating CSCF is responsible of the interpretation of the privacy header field.

If the served (diverting) user selects the option that the originating user is notified, but without the diverted-to number, then the AS shall not send the connected user’s identity when the communication is answered, unless the originating user has an override capability.

4.6.4 Originating Identification Presentation (OIP)

When a communication has been diverted and the diverted-to user has been provided with the originating identification presentation simulation service, the S-CSCF of the diverted-to user shall sent the number of the original originating user, if this originating user has not subscribed to or invoked the originating identification restriction simulation service.

4.6.5 Originating Identification Restriction (OIR)

When the originating identification restriction simulation service has been invoked, the originating user’s address shall not be presented to the diverted-to user unless the diverted-to user has an override capability.

4.6.6 Conference calling (CONF)

No impact, i.e. neither service shall affect the operation of the other service.

4.6.7 Communication Diversion Services (CDIV)

No impact, i.e. neither service shall affect the operation of the other service.

For the indication of communication diversion to the diverting user service, the provision and activation of at least one redirection service is a pre-requirement to provision and activate the indication of communication diversion to the diverting user service.

4.6.8 Malicious Communication Identification (MCID)

No impact, i.e. neither service shall affect the operation of the other service.

4.6.9 Anonymous Communication Rejection and Communication Barring (ACR/CB)

If the user where the communication is forwarded to has subscribed to a call barring service "inhibition of incoming forwarded communication" the procedures described in TS 183 011 [9] shall take precedence.

If the user is subscribed to an Outgoing Communication Barring (OCB) service that includes the forwarded communication the OCB shall take precedence. The CDIV service has to check if the forwarded to number is restricted and release the communication in such a case.

4.6.10 Explicit Communication Transfer (ECT)

4.6.10.1 Actions at the diverting AS

4.6.10.1.1 Determine whether ECT is applied to the diverted communication

See TS 183 029 [15], clause 4.5.2.4.1 on the criteria that determine that a REFER request is to be treated as a request for transfer of an existing communication.

4.6.10.1.2 Handling of transfer requests

When a REFER request is received in the context of a call transfer scenario (see clause 4.6.10.1.1), it shall perform the following steps:

  1. Create a new CDIV Session Identifier URI addressed to this AS. The URI shall be created in such a way that a new dialog set up towards this URI can be easily correlated with the current REFER dialog.
  2. The AS stores the value of the Refer-To header field (transfer target) from the REFER request and links it to the CDIV Session Identifier URI.
  3. The AS Replaces the Refer-To header field with the CDIV Session Identifier URI. (This ensures that the diverting AS remains in the loop when the transferee sets up the communication with the transfer target.).
  4. The AS forwards the REFER request to the transferee using basic communication procedures ES 283 003 [2].
4.6.10.1.3 Actions when CDIV is invoked again by the transferred communication

When an INVITE is received targeted at the CDIV Session Identifier URI created earlier when transfer of the diverted ongoing communication was requested, the AS shall perform the following actions:

  1. The AS replaces the request URI with the stored Refer-To header field value linked to the specific CDIV Session Identifier URI.

NOTE: If needed the AS may generate charging events to charge for the extra leg.

  1. The AS sets the diversion parameters (History-Info and To header fields) as specified in clause 4.5.2.6.2, in step 4.5.2.6.2.2 b.2) or 4.5.2.6.2.3 b.2) the cause-param value 302 shall be used.
  2. The AS forwards the INVITE request towards the transfer target using basic communication procedures ES 283 003 [2].

4.7 Interactions with other networks

4.7.1 Interaction with PSTN/ISDN

In case of interaction with networks which do not provide any notification of the communication diversion or communication redirection information (e.g. redirection counter) in the signalling system, the communication continues according to the basic call procedures.

4.7.1.1 Interworking at the O-MGCF

For the mapping of IAM to the INVITE Message no additional procedures beyond the basic call and interworking procedures are needed unless Call Forwarding within the ISUP network appeared.

With regard to the backward messages the following mapping is valid.

The mapping described within table 4.7.1.1.1 can only appear if the communication has already undergone a Call Forwarding in the ISDN/PSTN and the 180 is the first provisional response sent in backward direction.

The IWU can indicate the call diversion in the mapping of 180 (Ringing) to CPG in fact if the response before was a 181 (Call Is Being Forwarded).

4.7.1.1.2 Call forwarding within the ISUP Network appeared

The following Scenario shows if a Call Forwarding appears in the ISUP/PSTN Network and the redirected Number is within the SIP Network. Table 4.7.1.1.2.1 should be seen as example.

For the mapping of 180 (Ringing) and 200 (OK) response OK to the regarding ISUP messages and parameters no additional procedures beyond the basic call procedures are needed.

To interwork the redirection number at the O-MGCF it can be needed to create placeholder History entries. Such a History entry has to provide a hi-target-to-uri with a placeholder value "unknown@unknown.invalid" a cause-param and an index as described within table 4.7.1.1.2.1.

4.9 Service Configuration

4.9.1 Structure of the XML Document

Communication Diversion documents are subtrees of the simservs document specified in TS 183 023 [4]. As such, Communication Diversion documents use the XCAP application usage in TS 183 023 [4].

In addition to the considerations and constraints defined by the simservs document TS 183 023 [4], we define the additional constraints and considerations for the Communication Diversion subtree:

XML schema: Implementations in compliance with the present document shall implement the XML schema that minimally includes the XML Schema defined in clause 4.9.2 and the simservs XML schema specified in clause 6.3 of TS 183 023 [4].

Data semantics: The semantics of the communication diversion XML configuration document is specified in clause 4.9.1.

An instance of the simulation services configuration containing a communication diversion configuration document.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

<simservs

xmlns="http://uri.etsi.org/ngn/params/xml/simservs/xcap"

xmlns:cp="urn:ietf:params:xml:ns:common-policy"

xmlns:ocp="urn:oma:xml:xdm:common-policy">

<communication-diversion active="true">

rule set

</communication-diversion>

</simservs>

The communication diversion service contains a rule set that specifies how the communication diversion service shall react to external stimuli.

4.9.1.1 Communication Diversion Element

The communication diversion configuration is contains a rule set. The rule set reuses the syntax as specified by the common policy draft (see RFC 4745 [17]).

<communication-diversion active="true">

<cp:ruleset>

rule1

rule2

</cp:ruleset>

</communication-diversion>

In general the following procedure applies:

When the service processes a set of rules it shall start with the first rule and test if its conditions are all true, if this is the case the rule matches and the specified action shall be executed.

When the rule does not match the following rule shall be selected and the same procedure repeated, until a matching rule is found or the set of remaining rules is empty.

However not all rules can be matched at the same moment in the call. Some conditions imply that rules that carry them are checked at specific events in the call, for example the no-answer condition only holds when the called party does not answer after a while. In this case the same procedure shall apply as above with the modification that the set of rules to process contains only the rules applicable for that specific network event.

In clause 4.9.1.3 all allowed conditions are specified, normally rules are evaluated at communication setup time, for conditions where this is not the case this is explicitly indicated.

The shown "active" attribute is inherited from the simservType from TS 183 023 [4], its meaning is also specified in TS 183 023 [4].

4.9.1.2 Communication Diversion Rules

The Communication Diversion service is configured with an ordered set of forwarding rules. The XML Schema reuses the rule syntax as specified by the common policy draft (see RFC 4745 [17]). The rules take the following form:

<cp:rule id="rule66">

<cp:conditions>

condition1

condition2

</cp:conditions>

<cp:actions>

<forward-to>

<target>

targetAddress1

</target>

<notify-caller>true</notify-caller>

</forward-to>

</cp:actions>

</cp:rule>

When the service processes a set of rules it shall start with the first rule and test if its conditions are all true, if this is the case the rule matches and the specified action is executed. When a rule matches remaining rules in the rule set shall be discarded. Applied to the fragment above this means that only if the expression (condition1 AND condition2) evaluates to true that then the rule66 matches and the forward-to action is executed.

When the rule does not match the following rule shall be selected and the same procedure repeated, until a matching rule is found or the set of remaining rules is empty.

The "id" attribute value of a rule shall uniquely identify the rule within a rule set. This can be used in XCAP usage to address one specific rule.

4.9.1.3 Communication Diversion Rule Conditions

The following conditions are allowed by the XML Schema for the communication diversion service:

busy: This condition evaluates to true when the called user is busy. In all other cases the condition evaluates to false. Rules with this condition are evaluated when a busy indication is received from the called party.

not-registered: This condition evaluates to true when the called user is not registered. In all other cases the condition evaluates to false.

presence-status: This condition evaluates to true when the called user’s current presence activity status is equal to the value set for this condition. In all other cases the condition evaluates to false.

cp:identity: This condition evaluates to true when the calling user’s identity matches with the value of the identity element. The interpretation of all the elements of this condition is described in OMA-TS-XDM-Core-V1_1 [18]. In all other cases the condition evaluates to false.

anonymous: This condition evaluates to true when the P-Asserted-Identity of the calling user is not provided or privacy restricted.

cp:sphere: Not applicable in the context of the Communication Diversion service.

cp:validity: Specifies a period. The condition evaluates to true when the current time is within the validity period expressed by the value of this condition. In all other cases the condition evaluates to false.

media: When the incoming call request for certain media, the forwarding rule can decide to forward the call for this specific media. This condition evaluates to true when the value of this condition matches the media field in one of the "m=" lines in the SDP (RFC 4566 [5]) offered in an INVITE (RFC 3261 [6]).

no-answer: This condition evaluates to true when the called user does not answer. In all other cases the condition evaluates to false. Rules with this condition are evaluated when a no-answer timeout is detected.

rule-deactivated: This condition always evaluates to false. This can be used to deactivate a rule, without loosing information. By removing this condition the rule can be activated again.

ocp:external-list: This condition evaluates to true when the calling users identity is contained in an external resource list to which the value of external-list refers. The exact interpretation of this element is specified in
OMA-TS-XDM-Core-V1 _1 [18].

ocp:other-identity: Not applicable in the context of communication diversion service.

not-reachable: this condition evaluates to true when there is a signalling channel outage during session setup to the served user’s UE and the served user is registered. In all other cases this condition evaluates to false.

The condition elements that are not taken from the common policy schema (RFC 4745 [17]) or OMA common policy schema (see OMA-TS-XDM-Core-V1_1 [18]) are defined in the simservs document schema specified in 
TS 183 023 [4].

4.9.1.4 Communication Diversion Rule Actions

The action supported by the communication service is forwarding of calls. For this the forward-to action has been defined. The forward-to action takes the following elements:

target: Specifies the address of the forwarding rule. It should be a SIP URI (RFC 3261 [6]) or TEL URL
(RFC 3966 [7]).

notify-caller: An optional element that can be used to disable the default behaviour that the caller is notified that the call is being forwarded (see subscription option "Originating user receives notification that his communication has been diverted (forwarded or deflected)" in table 4.3.1.1).

reveal-identity-to-caller: An optional element that can be used to disable the default behaviour that the caller is notified that the call is being forwarded receives the diverted-to party’s identity information (see subscription option "Served user allows the presentation of forwarded to URI to originating user in diversion notification" in table 4.3.1.1).

notify-served-user: An optional element that can be used to enable that the served user is notified that calls are being forwarded. Default this is switched off (see subscription option "Served user receives notification that a communication has been forwarded" in table 4.3.1.1).

notify-served-user-on-outbound-call: An optional element that can be used to enable that the served user is notified that calls are being forwarded when he makes a call attempt. Default this is switched off (see subscription option "Served user receives reminder notification on outgoing communication that forwarding is currently activated" in table 4.3.1.1).

reveal-identity-to-target: An optional element that can be used to disable the default behaviour that the diverted-to party receives identity information of the diverting party (see subscription option "Served user allows the presentation of his/her URI to diverted‑to user" in table 4.3.1.1).
