2 Outline Evolution of IN GPRS overview CAMEL in GPRS Discussion
3 Plain Old Telephone Service Service logic were hardwired in switching systems. Network operators discuss services customers required with switch vendors. (no standard) Once services were implemented, they were not easily modified. service logic hardwired
4 Stored Program Control In the mid-1960s, stored program control (SPC) switching systems were introduced. As a result, it was easier to introduce new services. Service logic was not modular. service logic programmable
5 Common Channel Signaling In the mid-1970s, common channel signaling network (CCSN) was introduced. Signaling system number 7 (SS7) is the protocol that runs over the CCSN. SS7 network separates the call setup information and talk path from the common trunk that runs between switching systems.
6 SS7 network components signal switching points (SSPs) — SSPs are telephone switches equipped with SS7-capable software and terminating signaling links. They generally originate, terminate, or switch calls. signal transfer points (STPs) — STPs are the packet switches of the SS7 network. They receive and route incoming signaling messages to destination. signal control points (SCPs) — SCPs are databases providing information necessary for advanced call- processing capabilities

8 The Introduction of IN During the mid-1980s, Telcordia Technologies responded to RBOCs ’ s request and developed the concept of Intelligent Network 1 (IN/1). Service logic splits from switching system, now resides in service control points (SCP). service logic now here
9 Call Model PICs represent switching system states that a call goes through from origination to termination. SSPs check TDPs to see if there are any active triggers. If an active trigger is detected, normal switching system call processing is suspended until the SSP and SCP complete communications. SSP suspended,and ask SCP what to do in next step

17 MAP/CAP protocol stack CAP has the same underlying protocol stack as MAP. Ge interface is first defined in 3G, but didn ’ t appear in 2.5G.
18 Overall CAMEL Architecture
19 Detection Points (DPs) GPRS events maybe made visible to gsmSCF. DPs are points at which these events are detected. DPs can be armed to notify gsmSCF GPRS event was encountered, and to allow gsmSCF to influence subsequent handling of GPRS session/PDP Context. If DP isn ’ t armed, processing entity continues processing without gsmSCF involvement at the DP.
21 Detection Points (DPs) TDP-R Statically armed, initiate a CAMEL control relationship When GPRS event is encountered, processing is suspended EDP-R Dynamically armed within CAMEL control relationship When GPRS event is encountered, processing is suspended and gprsSSF waits for inst from gsmSCF EDP-N Dynamically armed within CAMEL control relationship When GPRS event is encountered, processing is not suspended.
22 GPRS Attach/Detach State Model 3 DPs are defined: DP Attach DP Change of Position GPRS session DP Detach
23 GPRS PDP Context State Model 4 DPs are defined: DP PDP Context Establishment DP PDP Context Establishment Ack DP PDP Context Disconnection DP Change of Position Context
24 GPRS CAMEL Scenarios 2 scenarios for CAMEL control of GPRS Scenario 1 Allows CAMEL control of GPRS session and of multiple PDP contexts within 1 GPRS dialogue Scenario 2 Allows CAMEL control of a single PDP contexts Multiple PDP contexts are controlled via multiple GPRS dialogues. Scenario 1 and scenario 2 are mutually exclusive.
25 GPRS CAMEL Scenario 1 Involves Attach/Detach state model Uses less resource (tcap dialogue) More complicated when implementation
26 GPRS CAMEL Scenario 2 Doesn ’ t involves Attach/Detach state model Uses more resource (tcap dialogue) Simpler when implementation
27 GPRS Attach The message sequence chart is too large to fit in this slide. Please see the supplementary document from 3GPP 23060 spec. Notice the “Insert subscriber data” procedure, GPRS- CSI (CAMEL Subscription Information) is sent from HLR to SGSN. 2.5G HLR does not keep GPRS-CSI, nor does it send GPRS-CSI to SGSN. 3G HLR could keep GPRS-CSI, also it sends GPRS-CSI when doing “Insert subscriber data” procedure.
28 GPRS-CSI GPRS-CSI contains following information gsmSCF Address Service Key Default GPRS Handling TDP List CAMEL Capability Handling CSI state Notification flag gsmSCF address list for CSI
