11  Commands for VGCS and VBSp. 365

11.0  General |R8|p. 365

This clause defines commands that a TE may use to control a VGCS or VBS supporting MT. The requirements for the VGCS and VBS are included in the following specifications:
It is anticipated that VGCS or VBS supporting MTs will vary widely in functionality.
A comprehensive set of VGCS and VBS-specific commands is defined in clause 11.1 to provide the flexibility needed by the more complex MT. The commands use the extended information and error message capabilities described in this specification.
For the simplest MTs, and for backwards compatibility with existing communications software, it is possible to control access to the VGCS and VBS using existing modem-compatible commands. A special dial-string syntax is defined for use with the D command. This "modem compatible" mode of operation is described in clause 11.2.

11.2  Modem compatibility commandsp. 373

11.2.0  General |R8|p. 373

This clause describes how existing AT commands, designed for use with a modem, may be used to control a VGCS or VBS supporting MT. This is to provide backwards compatibility with existing communications software.

11.2.1  Request VGCS or VBS service 'D'p. 373

Command Possible response(s)
D*<SC1>[*<SC2>[*<SC3>]]#<GId>; +CME ERROR: <err>
Description
This Dial command extension is a service request application according to TS 22.030. No further commands may follow on the AT command line.
Responses
When the call has terminated, either as a result of an orderly termination or an error, the MT shall return the NO CARRIER final result code.
Possible error responses include +CME ERROR: <err> when error is related to MT functionality. The requested service, GId and priority level are checked against the subscriptions of the user and the status of the GId stored on the SIM. In case if no subscription is available for this service, GId or priority level or the GId is deactivated an ERROR or +CME ERROR result code is returned. The requested Group Id prefix is not checked against susbscription. The Group Id prefixes are not stored in the SIM/USIM card. If Service Code for Group Id prefix is used, but is not managed by MT, an ERROR or +CME ERROR result code is returned. See +CME ERROR extensions for VGCS, VBS and eMLPP in clause 9.2.3.
Detailed error report of an unsuccessful originated call can be obtained with command Extended Error Report +CEER (if implemented).
