This document specifies the interface between the Service Control Point (SCP) with SMS/800 Toll-Free Number (TFN) Registry. This document, in conjunction with the lower level protocols (see references section) defines the SMS/800-SCP interface. Section 2 reviews the CMSDB and SMS/800 information, and Section 3 contains the interface requirements. Throughout this document, the term Call Management Services Data Base (CMSDB) refers to the application in the SCP that interfaces with SMS/800.
NOTE SMS/800 only supports the most recent (latest) issue number of specification TM-STS-000798.
NOTE This document was originally titled the Call Management Services Data Base / Service Management System Interface Specification Manual. The document title was changed to reflect the expanded scope of this document to include all supported SCP - SMS/800 interface messages.
NOTE For further information about the SMS/800-SCP TCP/IP protocol, refer to “SCP-SMS/800 TCP/IP Interface Specification” (document ID SR-4959).
1.2.1 CMSDB Functions
The CMSDB is an SCP application that provides call control information required for centralized call management capabilities in response to network queries for such information. Basic call control functions are specified by Call Processing Records (CPRs), which contain call-handling information for individual customers. General call-control information are specified by other common data and by network management controls.
1.2.2 SMS/800 Functions
SMS/800 serves as the primary operations support system for administering a customer's service information. The SMS/800 interacts with a customer to define the customer's service and then generates the call process routing tree (CPR) for loading into SCP CMSDBs. SMS/800 also generates data needed by other operations processes. For the CMSDB, SMS/800 is the sole source for data updates.
1.2.3 Interface Definition
SCPs and SMS/800 use TCP/IP protocol for network/transport communications between SMS/800-SCP, using 4 sockets (2 Node sockets and 2 Application sockets).
1.2.4 Issue Support
All SCPs need to conform to the latest version of this specification.
