What Message Types does the MTA Application Support ? (Doc ID 1992059.1)

Last updated on MARCH 23, 2015

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 4.4.1 and later
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)

Goal

In Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control (NCC), one of the modules available is Number Portablity (NP) which has the ability to prefix the Called Party Global Title with special prefixes in order to correctly route certain message types to the network which ported out subscribers now belong to.

Specifically which types of messages are handled are configured per implementation in mta.cfg (found in /IN/service_packages/NP_SERVICE_PACK/etc) by adding triggerRules which take message types (msg) as an argument.  For example:

triggers = [ { name="NP_Service", servicekey=800 } ]
...
triggerRules = [ { msg="MAP_SRI_SM", msisdn="0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9", trigger="NP_Service" } ]

The above example will trigger all MAP (Mobile Application Part) SRI_SM (Send Routing Information for Short Message), for all MSISDN (Mobile Subscriber ISDN (Integrated Services Digital Network) Number) prefixes to the "NP_Service", which is defined to trigger Service Key 800.

It is not clear from the documentation what options can be defined as support "msg" types in the triggerRules configuration.
