1  ScopeWord‑p. 5

This specification gives the stage 2 description of the subscriber data management handling between:
  • the Home Location Register (HLR) and the Visitor Location Register (VLR);
  • the Home Location Register (HLR/HSS) and the Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN).
A number of procedures require updating of subscriber information:
  • location updating;
  • restoration;
  • modification of data by the operator;
  • modification of data by the subscriber via the Mobile Station (MS).
Updating of subscriber information from HLR/HSS to SGSN is required in the following situations:
  • GPRS location updating;
  • EPS location updat ing;
  • modification of data by the operator.
Only the rules for the updating of subscriber data from the HLR to the VLR and from the HLR/HSS to the SGSN are described in this specification; these rules only apply when the MAP protocol is used for subscriber data updating (see TS 29.002). Public Land Mobile Network (PLMN) specific and Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD) subscriber data are out of scope of this specification. The GPRS context update from the SGSN to the GGSN and the EPC bearer context update from the SGSN to the P-GW via S-GW are out of scope of this specification.

3.1  AbbreviationsWord‑p. 6

For the purposes of the present document, the abbreviations given in TS 21.905 apply.

3.2  DefinitionsWord‑p. 7

Subscriber data to be stored in the HLR, VLR and SGSN are defined in TS 23.008, TS 23.271, TS 23.135 and in 3GPP TS 23.06x, 3GPP TS 23.08x and 3GPP TS 23.09x-series of technical specifications.
Voice Broadcast Service (VBS), Voice Group Call Service (VGCS) and enhanced Multi Level Precedence and Pre-emption Service (eMLPP) Data related to group call area, cell or dispatcher attributes is only stored in the Group Call Register (GCR) which is linked to each MSC/VLR.
The GCR and its stored data is out of scope of this specification.
Subscriber related VBS, VGCS and eMLPP Data only concerns entitlement data for these-services and is seen as shared non-GPRS subscriber data.
GPRS and non-GPRS subscriber data:
The HLR has to download data to the VLR and to the SGSN. In this specification those data sent to the VLR are called non-GPRS subscriber data and those data sent to the SGSN are called GPRS subscriber data.
Whenever the refining identifier non-GPRS or GPRS is missing a common rule is addressed which hold for both kinds of subscriber data.
Subscriber data specific to non-GPRS shall only be sent from the HLR to the VLR. Subscriber data specific to GPRS shall only be sent from the HLR to the SGSN.
Subscriber data common to both non-GPRS and GPRS (regional subscription information) are downloaded from the HLR to both entities.
Shared non-GPRS subscriber data:
Common subset of subscriber data defined to be stored in both the HLR and VLR. Subscriber data only stored in the HLR is not part of shared subscriber data. Shared subscriber data includes:
BS:
Bearer Service (see TS 22.002);
TS:
Teleservice (see TS 22.003);
BSG:
Basic Service Group (see TS 22.001, TS 22.004 and TS 23.011);
EBSG:
Elementary Basic Service Group (see TS 23.011);
CBSG:
Collective Basic Service Group (see TS 23.011);
LSA Information:
Localized Service Area Information (see 3GPP TS 23.073);
SC Information:
Super-Charger Information (see TS 23.116);
IST Information:
Immediate Service Termination Information (see 3GPP TS 43.035).
Shared GPRS subscriber data:
Common subset of subscriber data defined to be stored in both the HLR and SGSN. Subscriber data only stored in the HLR is not part of shared subscriber data. Shared GPRS subscriber data includes:
TS:
Teleservice (see TS 22.003);
PDP Context
(see TS 23.060);
LSA Information:
Localized Service Area Information (see 3GPP TS 23.073);
SC Information:
Super-Charger Information (see TS 23.116);
Charging Information
(see TS 23.060).
Mandatory data:
Data required to form a self-consistent set of subscriber data. The context governs whether a specific parameter is mandatory, e.g. the data set for a specific service may be optional, however if data for this service is present, then parameters within this data set may be mandatory.
Mandatory data is defined by the service description (see e.g. 3GPP TS 23.06x, 3GPP TS 23.08x and 3GPP TS 23.09x-series of technical specifications, TS 23.015, 3GPP TS 23.071 and TS 23.135) and by PLMN defined requirements.
Optional data:
Data which is defined as subscriber data, but which is not required to form a self-consistent set of subscriber data; the context governs whether a specific parameter is optional.
Optional data is data which is defined by the service description (see e.g. 3GPP TS 23.06x, 3GPP TS 23.08x and 3GPP TS 23.09x-series of technical specifications, TS 23.015, TS 23.271 and TS 23.135) or by PLMN defined requirements but is not defined as mandatory data.
Missing data:
Data which is mandatory in a given context but is not received nor is valid data available locally.
Unexpected data:
Data which is received and cannot be further processed. This may be either:
  • optional data not required in a given context; or
  • optional or mandatory data, required in this context but received with an unexpected value.
Overlapping data:
Two different cases of overlapping within subscriber data are possible:
  • two or more parameters are to be stored at the same address in the data structure (see subclause 4.4);
  • two or more BSGs within a BSG list include or are identical with one and the same EBSG.
