MCC  —  Mobile  Country  Code


The MCC consists of 3 digits (12 bits). The allocation of MCCs is administered by the ITU-T and the current allocation is given in the COMPLEMENT TO ITU-T RECOMMENDATION E.212.

Some examples: 208 (France), 214 (Spain), 228 (Switzerland)

MMEC  —  Mobility  Management  Entity  Code


The length of the MME Code is 8 bits.

The operator shall need to ensure that the MMEC is unique within the MME pool area and, if overlapping pool areas are in use, unique within the area of overlapping MME pools.

MMEGI  —  Mobility  Management  Entity  Group  ID


The MMEGI identifies a Pool of MMEs and its length is 16 bits.

The MME Pool FQDN shall be constructed as:

mmegi<MMEGI>.mme.epc.mnc<MNC>.mcc<MCC>.3gppnetwork.org

<MMEGI> is the hexadecimal string of the MMEGI. If there are less than 4 significant digits, "0" digit(s) shall be inserted at the left side to fill the 4 digit coding.

MMEI  —  Mobility  Management  Entity  Identifier


An MME within an operator's network is identified using an MMEGI identifying the MME Pool, and an MMEC identifying the MME node within this Pool.

A subdomain name shall be derived from the MNC and MCC by adding the label "mme" to the beginning of the Home Network Realm/Domain.

The MME node FQDN shall be constructed as:

mmec<MMEC>.mmegi<MMEGI>.mme.epc.mnc<MNC>.mcc<MCC>.3gppnetwork.org

<MMEC> and <MMEGI> are the hexadecimal strings of the MMEC and MMEGI. If there are less than 2 significant digits in <MMEC>, "0" digit(s) shall be inserted at the left side to fill the 2 digit coding. If there are less than 4 significant digits in <MMEGI>, "0" digit(s) shall be inserted at the left side to fill the 4 digit coding.

MNC  —  Mobile  Network  Code


The length of the MNC is two or three digits (8 bits or 12 bits) and depends on the value of the MCC.

MSIN  —  Mobile  Subscriber  Identification  Number


The MSIN is part of the IMSI. It identifies the mobile subscriber within a PLMN.

MSISDN  —  Mobile  Station international PSTN/  ISDN number


MS international ISDN numbers are allocated from the ITU-T Recommendation E.164 numbering plan; see also ITU-T Recommendation E.213. The number consists of:
  • Country Code (CC) of the country in which the MS is registered, followed by:
  • National (significant) mobile number, which consists of:
    • National Destination Code (NDC) and
    • Subscriber Number (SN).
For GSM/UMTS applications, a National Destination Code is allocated to each PLMN. In some countries more than one NDC may be required for each PLMN.

MSRN  —  Mobile  Station  Roaming  Number


The Mobile Station Roaming Number (MSRN) is used to route calls directed to an MS. On request from the Gateway MSC via the HLR it is temporarily allocated to an MS by the VLR with which the MS is registered; it addresses the Visited MSC collocated with the assigning VLR. More than one MSRN may be assigned simultaneously to an MS. The MSRN is passed by the HLR to the Gateway MSC to route calls to the MS.

The Mobile Station Roaming Number for PSTN/ISDN routing shall have the same structure as international ISDN numbers (MSISDN) in the area in which the roaming number is allocated, i.e.:
  • the country code of the country in which the visitor location register is located;
  • the national destination code of the visited PLMN or numbering area;
  • a subscriber number with the appropriate structure for that numbering area.

M-TMSI  —  MME    Temporary  Mobile  Subscriber  Identity


The M-TMSI is part of the GUTI, and the S-TMSI.

Its length is 32 bits.
