Hereinafter, embodiments of the present invention will be described in detail with reference to the accompanying drawings. In the following description of the present invention, the same reference numerals will be used for the same means regardless of the reference numerals in order to facilitate the overall understanding.

1 is a configuration diagram schematically illustrating a configuration of a mobile communication system providing a roaming service.

Referring to FIG. 1, a mobile communication system is divided into a visited network 100 and a home network 200. In the following description, the visited network 100 may be a communication network of an inbound roaming subscriber using a roaming service, and the home network 200 may be an overseas third party network to which an inbound roaming subscriber subscribes to a communication service.

The visited network 100 includes an inbound roaming terminal 110, a visited network switch (MSC: Mobile service Switching Center (MSC) 120), a gateway location register (hereinafter referred to as a GLR) 130 ) And a visited network service control device (SCP) (hereinafter referred to as SCP) 140.

The inbound roaming terminal 110 is a terminal that is connected to a mobile communication network to perform incoming and outgoing functions of voice calls. For example, the inbound roaming terminal 110 may be a cellular phone, a personal communication service (PCS) phone, a PDA phone, a GSM phone, a WCDMA phone, a CDMA-2000 phone, a DMB phone, or the like.

Also, the inbound roaming terminal 110 is a terminal of a prepaid subscriber who subscribes to a prepaid service in the home network 200.

The visited network MSC 120 performs basic and additional service processing, incoming and outgoing call processing of subscribers, location registration and handoff procedures, and interworking with other networks. Here, the other network may be a PSTN, an intelligent network, or the like.

When the visited network MSC 120 receives a location registration request from the inbound roaming terminal 110, the visited network MSC 120 may transmit a location registration request message including intelligent network message specification information supported by the visited network 100 to the GLR 130. For example, the intelligent network message may be a CAMEL (Customized Applications for Mobile. Network Enhanced Logic (APPEL) Application Part) message, and the intelligent network message specification information may be CAMEL phase specification information. Hereinafter, for convenience and understanding of the description, the description will be made assuming that the intelligent network message is a CAP message and the intelligent network message specification information is CAMEL phase standard information.

When the location registration is requested for the inbound roaming terminal 110 through the visited network MSC 120, the GLR 130 inquires about the HLR 240 of the home network 200 to obtain subscriber information about the inbound roaming terminal 110. Acquire and transmit to the visited network MSC (120).

When the location is registered, the GLR 130 checks the CAMEL Phase specification information of the operator by using the operator information (preset and stored during the roaming agreement) of the network (home network 200) to which the inbound roaming terminal 110 is subscribed. Then, the location registration request message including the CAMEL Phase specification information is transmitted to the HLR 240 of the home network 200. Subsequently, the GLR 130 may obtain subscriber information including service type information from the HLR 240. Here, the service type information may include information indicating that the inbound roaming terminal 110 is subscribed to a prepaid service, CAMEL Phase specification information of the home network 200, address information to the home network SCP 250, and the like.

For example, the GLR 130 may manage service provider information for each roaming network operator and service provider information for IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity). Here, the operator information for each network operator may include a carrier identification ID, whether CAMEL roaming is allowed for the inbound roaming subscriber, and CAMEL Phase specification information supported by the operator. Here, whether to allow CAMEL roaming may be set in advance when the roaming agreement is different as the CAMEL phase between operators is different. IMSI-specific carrier information may include a country code, network code and carrier identification ID. The GLR 130 may extract the operator identification ID by using the subscriber's IMSI included in the location registration request message received from the visited network MSC 120, and check whether the operator permits CAMEL roaming. Subsequently, when CAMEL roaming is allowed, the GLR 130 may transmit a location registration request message including the CAMEL Phase specification information supported by the corresponding operator to the HLR 240.

Thereafter, the GLR 130 temporarily stores the service type information obtained from the HLR 240 and makes an intelligent network subscriber generation request to the visited network SCP 140. At this time, the GLR 130 transmits the service type information to the visited network SCP (140).

The GLR 130 receives a response including the address information to the visited network SCP 140 from the visited network SCP 140 and modifies the service type information. For example, the GLR 130 transmits the CAMEL Phase specification information of the home network 200 and the address information of the home network SCP 250 from the service type information, respectively, to the CAMEL Phase specification information and the visited network SCP 140 of the visited network 100. Can be modified with the address information of the.

Subsequently, the GLR 130 transmits subscriber information including the modified service type information to the visited network MSC 120. Accordingly, the visited network MSC 120 may transmit the intelligent network call to the visited network SCP 140 in response to the call request from the inbound roaming terminal 110.

Visiting network SCP (140) is a SCP located in the visited network 100, a device for managing the intelligent network service subscribers, and performs the service logic. For this purpose, the visited network SCP 140 manages the profile of the intelligent network service subscriber or a related database.

When the visiting network SCP 140 registers a location with respect to the inbound roaming terminal 110, it receives an intelligent network subscriber generation request from the GLR 130 for the inbound roaming terminal 110 and generates an intelligent network subscriber. At this time, the visited network SCP 140 receives the service type information obtained by the GLR 130 from the HLR 240, and generates and stores intelligent network subscriber information using the service type information. For example, the visited network SCP 140 may generate and store intelligent network subscriber information including IMSI, CAMEL roaming permission, CAMEL Phase specification information of the home network 200, and address information to the home network SCP 250. Here, whether to allow CAMEL roaming may be set to allow CAMEL roaming as the CAMEL Phase between operators is different.

In addition, the visited network SCP 140 transmits its address information to the GLR 130 in response to the intelligent network subscriber creation request. Through this, when an intelligent network call is transmitted, the intelligent network call may be transmitted to the home network SCP 250 via the visiting network SCP 140.

When the visiting network SCP 140 receives a call from the inbound roaming terminal 110 and requests the intelligent network service from the visiting network MSC 120, the visiting network MSC 120 and the home network according to the CAMEL roaming permission set due to the different CAMEL phase Intelligent network call processing is relayed between SCPs (250). Here, the visited network SCP 140 modifies and relays the CAP message transmitted and received between the MSC 120 and the home network SCP 250 to a format according to the CAMEL Phase standard of the visited network 100 or the home network 200.

For example, when the visited network SCP 140 receives an intelligent network service request message from the visited network MSC 120 in response to a request from the inbound roaming terminal 110, the visited network SCP 140 sends the intelligent network service request message to the CAMEL phase of the home network 200. It can be modified to the format corresponding to the home network SCP (250). Here, the intelligent network service request message may be an initial detection point (IDP) message.

In addition, the visiting network SCP 140 converts a BCSM Report Request Basic Message (RRB) or BCSM Event Report BCSM (ERB) into a format corresponding to the CAMEL Phase specification of the network. It can be modified and relayed.

As described above, the CAP message relayed by the visited network SCP 140 is described as an IDP message, a BCSM report request message, and a BCSM event report message by way of example, but is not limited thereto. That is, the CAP messages applied vary as shown in Table 1 below. Visiting network SCP 140 may play a role in matching different CAP message formats according to CAMEL Phase specification for various CAP messages.

When the inbound roaming terminal 110 requesting an outgoing call is allowed for CAMEL roaming, the visiting network SCP 140 determines whether there is a specialized service contracted with an operator of the home network 200 and processes the specialized service if present.

For example, the visited network SCP 140 may manage the specialized service information previously agreed with the operator of the home network 200.

For example, the specialized service may be a customer center access service to the customer center of the home network 200 operator. The inbound roaming terminal 110 may try to access the customer center of the home network 200 operator by receiving the customer center access number. The customer center access number is a number through which the subscriber can access the customer center through the home network 200 before roaming, and does not include an identification number such as a country code. Visiting network SCP (140) checks the customer center access service through the customer center access number when the home network 200 operator and the customer center access service is agreed, and relays the intelligent network service request message to the home network SCP (250) The specialized service can be processed.

The home network 200 is called terminal 210, home network MSC 220, gateway switch (GMSC: gateway mobile switching center, GMSC) 230, Home Location Register (hereinafter referred to as HLR) (240) and home network SCP (250).

The called terminal 210 is a terminal that is connected to a mobile communication network to perform incoming and outgoing functions of voice calls. For example, the destination terminal 210 may be a cellular phone, a personal communication service (PCS) phone, a PDA phone, a GSM phone, a WCDMA phone, a CDMA-2000 phone, a DMB phone, or the like.

The called terminal 210 is a terminal to which the inbound roaming terminal 110 requests a communication call.

The home network MSC 220 performs basic and additional service processing, incoming and outgoing call processing of subscribers, location registration procedure and handoff procedure processing, and interworking with other networks. Here, the other network may be a PSTN, an intelligent network, or the like.

The home network MSC 220 may perform a call connection with the called terminal 210 according to the communication call request of the inbound roaming terminal 110.

GMSC 230 is another form of exchange (MSC), and performs a gateway function between two networks. The inbound roaming terminal 110 of the visited network 100 may be connected to a communication call with the destination terminal 210 through the visited network MSC 120, the GMSC 230, and the home network MSC 220.

The HLR 240 generally stores a variety of information (eg, subscriber information) about a subscriber as a master database of a subscriber and performs location management for the inbound roaming terminal 110 or the called terminal 210. . For example, when the HLR 40 of the home network receives a location registration request message transmitted from the inbound roaming terminal 10 located in the visited network 100, the subscriber including the subscriber information of the inbound roaming terminal 10. An Insert Subscriber Data request message may be transmitted to the visited network MSC 120 through the GLR 130.

The HLR 240 stores service type information for each subscriber. The HLR 240 may deliver the subscriber information including the service type information to the GLR 130. That is, the HLR 240 stores subscriber information including service type information (CSI: CAMEL subscription information, CSI) for the corresponding service according to the service subscribed to the intelligent network subscriber.

For example, if the service subscribed to the intelligent network subscriber is an outgoing service, O-CSI may be used, if the incoming service is T-CSI, and if the service is a short message, SMS-CSI may be used. The HLR 240 may support the inbound roaming terminal 110 to receive the subscribed intelligent network service by transmitting subscriber information including the corresponding CSI according to the request of the GLR 130.

For example, the GLR 130 may determine that the corresponding subscriber is a prepaid service subscriber using O-CSI included in the subscriber information received from the HLR 240. Here, the O-CSI includes information indicating that the service subscribed to by the subscriber is a prepaid service.

The home network SCP 250 is an SCP located in the home network 200 and is a device for managing an intelligent network service subscriber and performing service logic. For this purpose, the home network SCP 250 manages the profile of the intelligent network service subscriber or a related database.

The home network SCP 250 receives the intelligent network service request message transmitted from the visited network MSC 120 through the visited network SCP 140 to process the prepaid service of the inbound roaming terminal 110.

For example, the home network SCP 250 may process the prepaid service by sending and receiving a BCSM report request message or BCSM event report message with the visited network MSC 120 through the visited network SCP (140).

2 is a flowchart illustrating a location registration method of an inbound roaming terminal. In FIG. 2, when the visited network 100 and the home network 200 have different CAMEL Phase specifications, a location registration method for providing a prepaid service to the inbound roaming terminal 110 will be described. In the following description, it is assumed that the visited network 100 uses CAMEL Phase 3 and the home network 200 uses CAMEL Phase 1 for convenience of understanding and explanation.

In step S205, the inbound roaming terminal 110 makes a location registration request to the visited network MSC (120).

In step S210, the visited network MSC 120 transmits a location registration request message to the GLR 130 according to the location registration request of the inbound roaming terminal 110. Here, the location registration request message may be a MAP message and may be a MAP_Update Location message.

The location registration request message may include CAMEL Phase specification information. Here, the CAMEL Phase specification information may be CAMEL Phase 3 used by the visited network 100.

In step S215, the GLR 130 checks the CAMEL Phase specification information of the home network 200 operator to which the inbound roaming terminal 110 is subscribed. For example, the GLR 130 is a CAMEL roaming permission and the CAMEL Phase 1 used by the home network 200 as the CAMEL phase between the visited network 100 and the home network 200 is different from each other in the roaming contract operator information. can confirm.

In step S220, the GLR 130 transmits a location registration request message to the HLR 240. Here, the location registration request message may include CAMEL Phase specification information set to CAMEL Phase 1.

In step S225, the HLR 240 transmits a subscriber information insertion request message including subscriber information of the inbound roaming terminal 110 to the GLR 130. The subscriber information includes service type information. Here, the service type information may include information indicating that the inbound roaming terminal 110 is subscribed to a prepaid service, CAMEL Phase specification information (CAMEL Phase 1) of the home network 200, address information to the home network SCP 250, and the like. Can be.

In step S230, the GLR 130 checks whether the CAMEL Phase specification information included in the service type information and the CAMEL Phase specification information included in the location registration request message transmitted in step S220 match, and inserts the subscriber information insertion response message into an HLR ( 240).

In step S235, the HLR 240 transmits the location registration response message to the GLR 130 according to the reception of the subscriber information insertion response message.

In step S240, the GLR 130 stores service type information.

In step S240, the GLR 130 transmits the intelligent network subscriber generation request message including the service type information to the visited network SCP (140).

In step S250, the visited network SCP 140 generates an intelligent network subscriber in response to the intelligent network subscriber creation request message. The visited network SCP 140 generates the intelligent network subscriber information using the service type information.

In step S255, the visited network SCP 140 transmits the intelligent network subscriber generation response message to the GLR 130 according to the intelligent network subscriber generation. The intelligent network subscriber generated response message includes the address information of the visited network SCP 140. For example, the visited network SCP 140 may generate and store intelligent network subscriber information including IMSI, CAMEL roaming permission, CAMEL Phase specification information of the home network 200, and address information to the home network SCP 250. Here, whether to allow CAMEL roaming may be set to allow CAMEL roaming as the CAMEL Phase between operators is different.

In step S260, the GLR 130 modifies the stored service type information according to the reception of the intelligent network subscriber generation response message. For example, the GLR 130 uses the CAMEL Phase specification information (CAMEL Phase 1) of the home network 200 and the address information of the home network SCP 250 from the service type information, respectively, and the CAMEL Phase specification information (CAMEL) of the visited network 100. Phase 3) and visit network SCP (140) can be modified with address information.

In step S265, the GLR 130 transmits a subscriber information insertion request message including the modified service type information to the visited network MSC 120.

In step S270, the visited network MSC 120 sets up intelligent network call processing to the visited network SCP 140 according to the service type information included in the subscriber information insertion request message, and transmits the subscriber information insertion response message to the GLR 130. do.

In step S275, the GLR 130 transmits the location registration response message to the visited network MSC 120 according to the reception of the subscriber information insertion response message from the visited network MSC 120, and in step S275, the visited network MSC 120 ) Transmits a response message to the inbound roaming terminal 110 to the completion of the location registration.

3 is a flowchart illustrating a call processing method of an inbound roaming terminal. In FIG. 3, when the visited network 100 and the home network 200 have different CAMEL Phase specifications, a call signal processing method of the inbound roaming terminal 110 for providing a prepaid service to the inbound roaming terminal 110 will be described. Let's do it.

In step S305, the inbound roaming terminal 110 requests an outgoing call to the visited network MSC 120 to connect the communication call to the destination terminal 210.

In step S310, the visited network MSC 120 transmits the intelligent network service request message to the visited network SCP 140 according to the intelligent network call processing set in correspondence with the originating signal of the inbound roaming terminal 110. The intelligent network service request message is a CAP message and may be an IDP message. For example, the intelligent network service request message may be generated in the format of CAMEL Phase 3, which is a CAMEL Phase standard of the visited network 100.

In step S315, the visited network SCP 140 determines whether to allow CAMEL roaming using the intelligent network subscriber information generated when registering the location of the inbound roaming terminal 110.

If the CAMEL roaming is not allowed because the CAMEL Phase specifications of the visited network 100 and the home network 200 match, the visited network SCP 140 processes the intelligent network service as a general intelligent network subscriber.

In step S325, when the visited network SCP 140 is different from the CAMEL Phase specifications of the visited network 100 and the home network 200 and CAMEL roaming is allowed, the specialized service contracted with the operators of the home network 200 in the stored provider information. Judge whether or not.

In step S330, the visited network SCP 140 processes the specialized service, if the specialized service exists. For example, the specialized service may be a customer center access service to the customer center of the home network 200 operator. The inbound roaming terminal 110 may try to access the customer center of the home network 200 operator by receiving the customer center access number. The customer center access number is a number through which the subscriber can access the customer center through the home network 200 before roaming, and does not include an identification number such as a country code. Visiting network SCP (140) checks the customer center access service through the customer center access number when the home network 200 operator and the customer center access service is agreed, and relays the intelligent network service request message to the home network SCP (250) The specialized service can be processed.

In step S335, the visited network SCP 140 modifies the intelligent network service request message corresponding to the CAMEL Phase standard of the home network 200 as the CAMEL Phase specifications of the visited network 100 and the home network 200 are different. For example, the visited network SCP 140 may modify the intelligent network service request message from the format of CAMEL Phase 3 (standard of the visited network 100) to the format of CAMEL Phase 1 (standard of the home network 200).

In step S340, the visited network SCP 140 transmits the modified intelligent network service request message to the home network SCP (250).

In step S345, the home network SCP 250 processes the prepaid service of the inbound roaming terminal 110 according to the receipt of the intelligent network service request message.

In step S350, the home network SCP 250 transmits a BCSM report request message (RRB) to the visited network SCP 140 in accordance with the prepaid service processing. BSCM report request message is the visited network MSC (120) call state to the destination terminal 210, where the call state (Busy), Answer (No Answer), No Answer (Disconnect), etc. It is a control message that requires the event information generated according to the basic call status of to be reported to the home network SCP 250.

In step S355, the visited network SCP 140 modifies the BCSM report request message to the CAMEL Phase 3 format, and in step S360, transmits the modified BCSM report request message to the visited network MSC 120.

Thereafter, in step S365, the visited network MSC 120 requests an incoming call to the GMSC 230 of the home network 200.

In step S370, the GMSC 230, the HLR 240, the home network MSC 220, and the called terminal 210 perform an answer procedure according to the incoming call request.

In step S375, the GMSC 230 transmits an ISUP address complete message (ACM) and an ISUP response message (ANM) to the visited network MSC 120 according to the response procedure.

In operation S380, the visited network MSC 120 transmits a BSCM event report message (ERB) including time information of the completion of the response procedure according to the reception of the ISUP response message to the visited network SCP 140.

In step S385, the visited network SCP 140 modifies the BCSM event report message to the CAMEL Phase 1 format, and in step S390, sends the modified BCSM event report message to the home network SCP 250.

Then, in step S395, the inbound roaming terminal 110, the visited network MSC 120, GMSC 230, home network MSC 220 and the destination terminal 210 performs a call termination procedure.

In step S400, the visited network MSC 120 transmits a BSCM event report message (ERB) including time information when the call termination procedure is completed according to the call termination to the visited network SCP 140.
