In addition, when involved in administrative management operations, a 3GPP application interfaces with appropriate equipment. These operations are outside the scope of the present document.
When involved in network operations a 3GPP application interfaces with a terminal with which messages are exchanged. A message can be a command or a response.
A 3GPP Application command/response pair is a sequence consisting of a command and the associated response.
A 3GPP Application procedure consists of one or more 3GPP Application command/response pairs which are used to perform all or part of an application oriented task. A procedure shall be considered as a whole, that is to say that the corresponding task is achieved if and only if the procedure is completed. The terminal shall ensure that, when operated according to the manufacturer's manual, any unspecified interruption of the sequence of command/response pairs which realise the procedure, leads to the abortion of the procedure itself.
A 3GPP application session is the interval of time starting at the completion of the 3GPP application initialisation procedure and ending either with the start of the 3GPP session termination procedure, or at the first instant the link between the UICC and the terminal is interrupted.
During the 3GPP network operation phase, the terminal plays the role of the master and the 3GPP application plays the role of the slave.
A 3GPP application specification may specify some commands defined in ETSI TS 102 221  as optional or define additional commands. The 3GPP application shall execute all applicable commands in such a way as not to jeopardise, or cause suspension, of service provisioning to the user. This could occur if, for example, execution of the AUTHENTICATE is delayed in such a way which would result in the network denying or suspending service to the user.
