D-interface   (MAP)

Up       Top

between  HLR
and  VLR

see it   here

specified from  GSM Phase 2  in
TS 09.02, clause 4.4.1 

This interface is used to exchange the data related to the location of the MS and to the management of the subscriber. The main service provided to the mobile subscriber is the capability to set up or to receive calls within the whole service area. To support that purpose the location registers have to exchange data. The VLR informs the HLR on the registration of a MS managed by the latter and provides it with the relevant location information. The HLR sends to the VLR all the data needed to support the service to the MS. The HLR then calls the previous VLR to inform it that it can cancel the location registration of this station because of the roaming of the mobile.

Exchanges of data may also occur when the mobile subscriber requires a particular service, when he wants to change some data attached to his subscription or when some parameters of the subscription are modified by administrative means.


Up       Top

between  3GPP AAA Server
and  pre-Rel-6 HLR / HSS

specified from  Rel-6  in
TS 23.234, clause 6.3.3 

The functions provided on the D'/Gr' reference points are a subset of the functions provided on the D/Gr reference points. If a 3GPP AAA Server supports the D' reference point, it will appear to the HLR/HSS as a VLR and shall behave according to the description of the behaviour of a VLR supporting the D reference point. If a 3GPP AAA Server supports the Gr' reference point, it will appear to the HLR/HSS as an SGSN and shall behave according to the description of the behaviour of an SGSN supporting the Gr reference point.


Dh

Up       Top

between  AS
and  SLF

specified from  Rel-6  in
TS 23.218, clause 9.2.3
TS 29.328 

The Dh interface is between the SLF and the SIP Application Servers, the OSA SCS, and the IM-SSF and may be used for retrieving the address of the HSS which holds the User Profile information for a given user.


Dw

Up       Top

between  3GPP AAA Server
and  SLF

specified from  Rel-6  in
TS 23.234, clause 6.3.14 

The prime purpose of the protocol(s) crossing this reference point is to enable the 3GPP AAA Server to find the address of the HSS which holds the subscriber data for a given user identity in a configuration with multiple separately addressable HSSs.


Dx

Up       Top

between  S-CSCF / I-CSCF
and  SLF

specified from  Rel-5  in
TS 29.228
TS 29.229 

This interface is used to retrieve the address of the HSS which holds the subscription for a given user or information related to a service.


Dz

Up       Top

between  BSF
and  SLF

see it   here

specified from  Rel-6  in
TS 33.220, clause 4.3 

This reference point allows the BSF to get the name of the HSS containing the required subscriber specific data.
