Sheet 7: A HLR implementing the Mobile Terminating Roaming Retry feature (see sub-clause 5.2.1) shall delay the sending of the PRN message till completion of any on-going Location Update procedure.

7.2.2.2 Procedure Check_Parameters

If any parameters required by the rules in clause 8 are missing from the message, the procedure sets the negative response to "Data missing". If any parameter has a value which is not in the set of values expected for the parameter, the procedure sets the negative response to "Unexpected data value".

7.2.2.3 Procedure Subscription_Check_HLR

The HLR derives the possible PLMN bearer capability to populate the parameter in the Provide Roaming Number request according to the rules defined in 3GPP TS 29.007 [30].

If the HLR is able to determine the PLMN bearer capability or equivalent ISDN compatibility information to be sent to the VLR in the Provide Roaming Number request, it applies the corresponding PLMN bearer service or teleservice for handling the call. If the HLR is not able to determine any compatibility information to be sent to the VLR in the Provide Roaming Number request, it applies a default basic service according to the requirements of the operator.

If the HLR receives Send Routeing Information from the gsmSCF and the HLR is not able to determine any compatibility information to be sent to the VLR in the Provide Roaming Number request, then the HLR shall apply basic service TS11.

NOTE The information element "gsmSCF Initiated Call" in Send Routeing Information serves as an indication to the HLR that this Send Routeing Information is sent by the gsmSCF. Refer to 3GPP TS 23.078 [12].

It is an implementation option to carry out the check for operator determined barring of incoming calls before the check on provisioning of the requested basic service.

The test "gsmSCF Initiated Call?" is specific to CAMEL phase 4 or later. If the HLR does not support CAMEL phase 4 or later, processing continues from the "No" exit.

The test "Suppress CUG Handling?" is specific to CAMEL phase 4 or later. If the HLR does not support CAMEL phase 4 or later, processing continues from the "No" exit.

The negative response "Call barred" indicates whether the reason is operator determined barring or supplementary service barring, according to the result returned by the procedure Check_IC_Barring.

The negative response "CUG reject" indicates whether the reason is:

– Incoming calls barred within CUG;

– Requested basic service violates CUG constraints;

– Subscriber not member of CUG;

according to the cause returned by the procedure IC_CUG_Check.

7.2.2.4 Procedure First_Forwarding_HLR

– The subscriber is marked as deregistered because of subscription restrictions on roaming.

7.2.2.5 Procedure PRN_Error_HLR

The procedure CCBS_Report_PRN_Failure is specific to CCBS; it is specified in 3GPP TS 23.093 [23]. The procedure does not return a value; the following tests are on the value of the Provide Roaming Number negative response.

The procedure Super_Charged_SRI_Error_HLR is specific to Super-Charger; it is specified in 3GPP TS 23.116 [24]. If the HLR does not support Super-Charger, processing continues from the "No" exit of the test "Result=Purged?".
