SMSC Rejecting Long Notification Messages with Length Greater Than 160 Octets When Sent Over the SMPP Interface (Doc ID 1406254.1)

Last updated on JUNE 06, 2012

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 3.1.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The SMSC (Short Message Service Center) is rejecting long notification messages (length greater than 160 octets) sent via Network Charging and Control's (NCC) Messaging Manager (MMX) application and submitted through the SMPP (Short Message Peer-to-Peer) interface.  If the notification message is short (length less than or equal to 160 octets) then it is successfully submitted to SMSC for subsequent delivery.

Network traces between the SMSC and the SLC (Service Logic Controller server where NCC applications run) show that the long notification messages are being rejected with an error code of 0x00000065, which is a permanent application error code for the submitted short message.
