Source:   TS 23.003, clause 13.5

The public service identity shall take the form of either a SIP URI or a Tel URI. A public service identity identifies a service, or a specific resource created for a service on an application server. The domain part is pre-defined by the IMS operators and the IMS system provides the flexibility to dynamically create the user part of the PSIs.

The PSIs are stored in the HSS either as a distinct PSI or as a wildcarded PSI.
