02.573GPPMobile Station Application Execution Environment (MExE) Service description Stage 1TS

This draft ETSI Technical Specification has been produced by Special Mobile Group (SMG) of the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI).

In analogy with CCITT Recommendations I.130, the first stage of the following three level structure is used to describe the telecommunications services as provided by European public telecommunications operators:

Stage 1 is an overall service description, from the service subscriber’s and user’s standpoint;

Stage 2 identifies the functional capabilities and information flows needed to support the service described in stage 1; and

Stage 3 defines the signalling system protocols and switching functions needed to implement the service described in stage 1.

This TS details the stage 1 aspects (overall service description) for the support of a Mobile Station Application Execution Environment (MExE).

The contents of this TS are subject to continuing work within SMG and may change following formal SMG approval. Should SMG modify the contents of this TS it will then be re-released by ETSI with an identifying change of release date and an increase in version number as follows:

Version 7.x.y

where:

7 GSM Phase 2+ Release 1998

y the third digit is incremented when editorial only changes have been incorporated in the specification;

x the second digit is incremented for all other types of changes, i.e. technical enhancements, corrections, updates, etc.
