1  ScopeWord‑p. 9
This Technical Specification (TS) describes the Service Principles for PLMNs specified by 3GPP. Principles and requirements for interworking with WLAN are covered in TS 22.234.
3GPP specifications provide integrated personal communications services. The system will support different applications ranging from narrow-band to wide-band communications capability with integrated personal and terminal mobility to meet the user and service requirements of the 21st century.
3GPP specifications allow the realisation of a new generation of mobile communications technology for a world in which personal communications services should allow person-to-person calling, independent of location, the terminal used, the means of transmission (wired or wireless) and the choice of technology. Personal communication services should be based on a combination of fixed and wireless/mobile services to form a seamless end-to-end service for the user.
3GPP specifications should be in compliance with the following objectives:
  1. to provide a single integrated system in which the user can access services in an easy to use and uniform way in all environments;
  2. to allow differentiation between service offerings of various serving networks and home environments;
  3. to provide a wide range of telecommunications services including those provided by fixed networks and requiring user bit rates of up to 100 Mbit/s as well as services special to mobile communications. These services should be supported in residential, public and office environments and in areas of diverse population densities. These services are provided with a quality comparable with that provided by fixed networks such as ISDN and fixed broadband Internet access;
  4. to provide services via hand held, portable, vehicular mounted, movable and fixed terminals (including those which normally operate connected to fixed networks), in all environments (in different service environments - residential, private domestic and different radio environments) provided that the terminal has the necessary capabilities;
  5. to provide support of roaming users by enabling users to access services provided by their home environment in the same way even when roaming.
  6. to provide audio, data, video and particularly multimedia services;
  7. to provide for the flexible introduction of telecommunication services;
  8. to provide within the residential environment the capability to enable a pedestrian user to access all services normally provided by fixed networks;
  9. to provide within the office environment the capability to enable a pedestrian user to access all services normally provided by PBXs and LANs;
  10. to provide a substitute for fixed networks in areas of diverse population densities, under conditions approved by the appropriate national or regional regulatory authority.
  11. to provide support for interfaces which allow the use of terminals normally connected to fixed networks.

Authentication performed between an SSO-capable UE and 3GPP SSO Identity Provider using Operator-controlled credentials and without requiring user involvement.
3GPP SSO Identity Provider:
An entity that maintains Operator-controlled identity and credential information for a user, performs 3GPP SSO Authentication, and asserts the user's identity to a Data Application Provider.
3rd Party SSO Identity Provider:
An entity that maintains identity and credential information (that is not Operator-controlled) for a user, performs authentication, and asserts the user's identity to a Data Application Provider.
Attended Data Traffic:
Data traffic of which the user is aware he/she initiated, e.g. based on the screen/keypad lock being deactivated, length of time since the UE last received any input from the user, known type of application (e.g. an application monitoring a user's health - "mHealth" - which may need its data always treated as Attended Data Traffic.)
A manually or automatically initiated emergency call (TS12 or IMS emergency call), from a vehicle, supplemented with a minimum set of emergency related data (MSD).
Data Application Provider:
An entity that offers data application services to users (e.g., over the public Internet). The data applications can be browser or non-browser based services.
E-UTRAN Sharing:
The sharing of E-UTRAN among a number of operators.
Free-to-air (FTA) TV:
A TV service characterised by no content encryption and being made available at no additional cost to the end user.
Free-to-view (FTV) TV:
A TV service characterised by optional content encryption and being made available at no additional cost to the end user.
Gateway UE:
a UE, which acts as a gateway providing access to and from the 3GPP network for one or more non-3GPP devices that are connected to the gateway UE.
GERAN or UTRAN Sharing:
The sharing of GERAN or UTRAN among a number of operators.
Hosting E-UTRAN/NG-RAN Operator:
The Operator that has operational control of a Shared E-UTRAN and/or NG-RAN.With regard to management of the Shared E-UTRAN the Hosting E-UTRAN/NG-RAN Operator is a Master Operator [64].
Hosting RAN:
The Shared RAN that is owned or controlled by the Hosting RAN Operator.
Hosting RAN Operator:
The Operator that has operational control of a Shared E-UTRAN, UTRAN or GERAN
IMS Centralized Services:
The provision of communication services wherein services and service control are based on IMS mechanisms and enablers, and support is provided for a diversity of access networks (including CS domain and IP based, wireless and wireline), and for service continuity between access networks.
The Minimum Set of Data [46] forming the data component of an eCall sent from a vehicle to a Public Safety Answering Point or other designated emergency call centre. The MSD has a maximum size of 140 bytes and includes, for example, vehicle identity, location information and time-stamp.
