Subject: Mobile Network Codes (MNCs) – Change from 2digits to 3 digits

Dear Mr. Doisneau,

GSM Europe has recently been following the developments concerning CEPT/ECTRA’s intention to formally adopt a Decision on the expansion of Mobile Network Codes from 2 to 3 digits (draft Decision attached). 

GSM Europe is the European regional interest group of the worldwide GSM Association, the premier global body behind the world’s leading wireless communications standard. GSM Europe represents around 159 mobileoperators in 50 regions in Europe with around 200 million subscribers.

I understand that the adoption of ECTRA’s Decision, which was originally scheduled for the CEPT/ECTRA meeting on 21st June 2000, was postponed further to concerns raised by industry. Further to its preliminary analysis, GSM Europe shares such concerns and believes a change in MNC from 2 to 3 digits is most likely to have severe implications for almost the entire GSM system (See Annex). The main consequences from our point of view would be:

¨ Call back of the released 2-digit SIM card – this could affect all current GSM users (around 200 million in Europe)

¨ The handset display may not be ready for such a change – this could cause severe confusion with all existing GSM handset

¨ Change of all existing roaming agreements with the need to re-run all the performed tests

¨  Enormous efforts in terms of investment and manpower for the changes in the network elements and the billing system, thereby reducing the innovation power of mobile operators

GSM is not convinced of the urgend need to initiate those changes. It does not feel that the costs and risks to be incorporated by the operators only are in any way justified by potential advantages. Especially new operators, operators which a dense infrastructure to provide special home services and operators building up a UMTS network could face more problems for migration than others.

In light of the abovementioned issues, GSM Europe strongly supports the idea of having a workshop open to all parties concerned in order to identify the technical difficulties and assess if and when these problems can be overcome. Such discussions, it is felt, would bring some clarifications to CEPT/ECTRA and other parties concerned on the real implications of an alteration in the MNC digits number. With regards to the timeframe, it would seem appropriate to hold a workshop organized by ETO in September 2000, so that adequate measures can be taken in a timely manner.

You will find attached in annex an analysis paper drafted by our experts expressing the views of GSM operators. The paper seeks to outline the technical issues relating to the introduction of 3-digit Mobile NetworkCodes and the possible consequences associated to this change.

I hope the attached document will be of interest to you.

Yours sincerely,

……..

Technical Issues Relating to the introduction of Three Digit Mobile Network Codes (MNCs).

Introduction / Background

The MNC is a component of the IMSI (International Mobile Subscriber Identity), the other components been the Mobile Country Code (MCC) and the Mobile Station Identification Number (MSIN).

Figure 1 IMSI Structure

The MNC is an inner element in the IMSI with a defined length of 15 digits. The whole IMSI is marked on the SIM-card. To this extend, the IMSI must not be mismatched with the subscriber's number which is e.g. in GSM an E.164 number.

Various GSM entities will interpret the extra MNC digit as part of another field (MSIN), which will consequently lead to inconsistencies within the interaction between various parts of the whole GSM System.

The IMSI is used to:

·       Identify a (roaming) customer, for

·       Network internal purposes used in all signalling in the PLMN, in

·       Interaction with the Mobile Terminal and for

·       BackOffice applications like charging, billing and accounting

As the National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) are responsible for the establishment and publication of conventions for IMSIs (IMSI = MCC + MNC + MSIN), the change of the current MNC allocations (e.g. 03 may become 030 or 003) may lead to severe problems as the length of the IMSI is fixed and the structure / usage of the MSIN is subject to each individual operator.

It should be noted that for the time being, out of a total of 300 MNCs actually in use, 14 are 3 digit MNCs. Furthermore, there are no assignments for 3 digit MNCs outside the US, where 5 US Operators where assigned such MNCs. In terms of operators this corresponds to 1.7 % of the GSM Operators.

It should be noted that this paper does not claim to be exhaustive and further in depth analysis is required.

Technical implications for the introduction of 3-digit MCNs:

SIM Cards:

The IMSI is an inherent part of all SIM cards,. This would hence require a replacement of all existing SIM cards with new ones. Taking into account the number of mobile users and prepaid cards, such exercise is practically not feasible (e.g. in Germany about 35 Millions of SIM Cards are produced, or are submitted to the customers, with a rapidly increasing proportion of prepaid cards). The costs of this procedure are expected to be quite high due to production of new SIM cards, SIM card distribution and logistics, customer service, activation of the new SIM cards, and customer handling. The activation/provisioning part raises questions about the capacity of the IT and networks systems. It would be quite likely that most operators would be forced to build up additional capacity to be able to manage the migration. Some customers would experience problems and would temporarily unable to use their mobile, which means loss of revenue from the operator's point of view. In addition to this it is doubtful, that SIM card chips can be produced to serve all carriers in due time.

As a result the co-existence of 2 and 3 digit MNCs can only be the subject of further analysis.

Handsets:

The introduction of a 3 digit MNC will certainly result in a number of compatibility problems between existing mobile equipment and the SIM, and also very likely between MS and the network. With respect to compatibility problems in the interface between SIM and the software of ME, two cases can easily be identified:

1              SIM with a new IMSI structure built up by three digit MNC combined with an ME running old software that isn't prepared for the new IMSI structure. The ME will in this case attempt to read the extra MNC digit as part of another field. This case will be difficult to solve as there are about 250 Million legacy mobiles in operation throughout Europe.

2              SIM with an old IMSI structure build up by two digits MNC combined with a ME running new software, expecting the new IMSI structure. Here it is much easier to find a solution, but the problem has to be addressed in order to find some kind of IMSI type identification on the SIM.

In other words, either a large number of terminals would have to be replaced, a very long lead time (longer than the typical life span of a mobile terminal) would have to be allowed, or the problems in the transition phase would have to be accepted by users and operators.(Further Input is welcome by other GSMA groups !!!!)

Network:

The IMSI analysis would need to be redefined .

All subscriber records would need to be modified to change the MNC from 0X to 0X0 or 00X. In the case of multiple HLRs, as is the case with nearly all operators, the level of planning and coordination would be substantial.

IN the case of redundant HLRs redundancy the data would need to be changed on both the live and backup locations.

In addition to this, many of the operators would have to reconfigure their Base Station Subsystem so that it transmits a LAI which contains the new 3 digit MNC. This causes operational costs. In addition it would demand additional operational capacities, which especially operators, who are still in the phase of 2G network rollout or who have (some additionally) plans to built up a 3G network may not be manage in a sufficient way, so that customers will not be frustrated. 

If FNR was in service it would also need updating.

Billing & Customer Care Systems:

The billing systems of most networks use the IMSI for the generation and gathering of billing information. A change in the MNC would require severe modification to billing systems and protocols. All effected subscriber records would need to be modified TAP-Files (TAP-Incollect/Outcollect) TAP 2 / TAP 2+.

Roaming:

Regarding Roaming, the IMSI analysis for all European operators (e.g. approximately 100 in Eircell’s case) will have to be changed in every MSC.

All roaming testing would have to be redone and would be more complex.

Finally, operators would have to change their roaming contracts with each of their roaming partners. This will have an effect on almost countries using GSM.

Hence, if the roamed-to network cannot scrutinise 3-digit MNCs , roaming would stop overnight

Fraud Prevention / Management:

Historical searches for IMSIs spanning the transition will have to be split into two reports, one before and one after search. Usage variation alarms for all the numbers that change will effectively start from scratch.

The impact from a Fraud & Security point of view would be the cost of modifying Fraud Management Systems and the length of time it would take to run the additional reports required.

(Further Input is welcome by other GSMA groups on specific issues relevant to their groups!!!!)

The GSM Association (GSMA) has recently been following the developments on the expansion of Mobile Network Codes (MNCs) from 2 to 3.

The GSMA, as the premier global body behind the world’s leading wireless communications standard, protects and enhances the interests of 678 GSM mobile operators from 209 countries and territories with more than 1 billion customers throughout the world today.

The GSMA has concerns related to the allocation of MNCs and its change in some cases from 2 digits to 3 digits and would like governments and regulatory authorities to take these concerns into account when allocating numbers to operators.

European operators have been issued 2-digit MNCs by their regulators for many years, therefore they have built their systems/infrastructure to support 2-digit MNCs.

In the past only North America and a few other countries have used 3-digit MNCs.  These 3-digit MNCs always ended in '0' (zero) and therefore could be treated as 2-digit MNCs.  The '0' (zero) is dropped/ignored and operators are able to uniquely identify their roaming partner based on the first two digits of the MNC.

The GSMA is now aware of countries where multiple 3-digit MNCs have been issued by regulators where the first two digits are exactly the same.  Although according to the specifications this is acceptable it is a problem for many operators whose systems are only set up to accept 2-digit MNCs. 

Enlarging the length of the MNC to accommodate 3-digit MNCs (filename length, field and record length) is a major change to the entire systems such as the rating engine, the TAP engine, the billing system and the data warehouse.

Further to its preliminary analysis, the GSMA shares such concerns and believes a change in MNC from 2 to 3 digits is most likely to have severe implications for almost the entire GSM system (please see Annex). The main consequences from our point of view would be:

Ø       Call back of the released 2-digit SIM card – this could affect all current GSM users (around 500 million in Europe).

Ø       The handset display may not be ready for such a change – this could cause severe confusion with all existing GSM handsets.

Ø       Change of all existing roaming agreements with the need to re-run all the performed tests.

Ø       Enormous efforts in terms of investment and manpower in order to change network elements and billing systems, thereby reducing the innovation power of mobile operators.

Ø       Inability for many operators to roam with the second operator where 3-digit MNCs have been issued in a country with no ability to identify an operator by the first 2 digits.

Therefore we strongly encourage governments and regulators to undertake a cost/benefit analysis when allocating MNCs.  We would suggest allocating either 2-digit MNCs or alternatively 3-digit MNCs where the operator can be uniquely identified by the first 2 digits.

You will find attached an analysis paper expressing the views of the GSMA operators. The paper seeks to outline the technical issues relating to the introduction of 3-digit MNCs and the possible consequences associated to this change.

I hope the attached document will be of interest to you.

Annex

Technical Issues Relating to the Introduction of

Three Digit Mobile Network Codes (MNCs).

1              Introduction / Background

According to IMSI structure defined in ITU E.212 an MNC can have two or three digits.

The IMSI structure and format are as shown in Figure 1.

(Figure 1              IMSI Structure)

The MNC is an inner element in the IMSI with a defined length of 15 digits. The whole IMSI is marked on the SIM-card. To this extend, the IMSI must not be mismatched with the subscriber's number which is e.g. in GSM an E.164 number.

Various GSM entities will interpret the extra MNC digit as part of another field (MSIN), which will consequently lead to inconsistencies within the interaction between various parts of the whole GSM System.

The IMSI is used to identify a (roaming) customer, for network internal purposes used in all signalling in the PLMN, in interaction with the Mobile Terminal and for BackOffice applications like charging, billing and accounting.

As the National Regulatory Authorities (NRAs) are responsible for the establishment and publication of conventions for IMSIs (IMSI = MCC + MNC + MSIN), the change of the current MNC allocations (e.g. 03 may become 030 or 003) may lead to severe problems given that the length of the IMSI is fixed and the structure / usage of the MSIN is subject to each individual operator.

It should be noted that for the time being, out of a total of 300 MNCs actually in use, 14 are 3-digit MNCs. Furthermore, there are no assignments for 3-digit MNCs outside the US, where 5 US Operators where assigned such MNCs. In terms of operators this corresponds to 1.7 % of the GSM Operators.

2              Technical implications derived from the introduction of 3-digit MCNs

Below we find some of the technical applications derived from the introduction of 3-digit MCNs. However this paper does not in any case try to be exhaustive and further in depth analysis is required. 

2.1              SIM Cards

The IMSI is an inherent part of all SIM cards. This would hence require a replacement of all existing SIM cards with new ones. Taking into account the number of mobile users and prepaid cards, such exercise is practically not feasible (e.g. in Germany about 35 million of SIM Cards are produced, or submitted to the customers, with a rapidly increasing proportion of prepaid cards). The costs of this procedure are expected to be quite high due to necessary production of new SIM cards, SIM card distribution and logistics, customer service, activation of the new SIM cards, and customer handling. The activation/provisioning part raises questions about the capacity of the IT and networks systems. It would be quite likely that most operators would be forced to build up additional capacity to be able to manage the migration. Some customers would experience problems and would temporarily be unable to use their mobile, which means loss of revenue from the operator's point of view. In addition to this, it is doubtful that SIM card chips, which are already due to the strong demand in short supply, can be produced to serve all carriers in due time.

As a result of this, the co-existence of 2 and 3-digit MNCs can only be the subject of further analysis.

2.2              Handsets

The introduction of a 3-digit MNC will certainly result in a number of compatibility problems between existing mobile equipment and the SIM, and also very likely between the mobile station (MS) and the network. With respect to compatibility problems in the interface between SIM and the software of mobile equipment (ME), two cases can easily be identified:

1)   SIM with a new IMSI structure built up by three digits MNC combined with an ME running old software that isn't prepared for the new IMSI structure. The ME will in this case attempt to read the extra MNC digit as part of another field. This case will be difficult to solve, as there are about 250 Million legacy mobiles in operation throughout Europe.

2)              SIM with an old IMSI structure build up by two digits MNC combined with a ME running new software, expecting the new IMSI structure. Here it is much easier to find a solution, but the problem has to be addressed in order to find some kind of IMSI type identification on the SIM.

In any case a large number of terminals would have to be replaced and very long lead time (longer than the typical life span of a mobile terminal) would have to be allowed.

2.3              Network

The IMSI analysis would need to be redefined. All subscriber records would need to be modified to change the MNC from 0X to 0X0 or 00X. In the case of multiple Home Location Registers (HLRs), as is the case with nearly all operators, the level of planning and coordination would be substantial.

In the case of redundant HLRs, the data would need to be changed on both the live and backup locations.

In addition to this, many of the operators would have to reconfigure their base station subsystem so that it transmits a Location Area Identity (LAI) which contains the new 3-digit MNC.

2.4              Billing & Customer Care Systems

The billing systems of most networks use the IMSI for the generation and gathering of billing information. A change in the MNC would require severe modifications to billing systems and protocols. All effected subscriber records would need to be modified TAP-Files (TAP-Incollect/Outcollect) TAP 2 / TAP 2+/TAP3.

2.5              Roaming

Regarding roaming, the IMSI analysis for all European operators will have to be changed in every MSC. All roaming testing would have to be redone and would be more complex.

Finally, operators would have to change their roaming contracts with each of their roaming partners. This will have an effect on nearly every country using GSM. Hence, if the roamed-to network cannot scrutinise 3-digit MNCs, roaming would stop overnight.

2.6              Fraud Prevention / Management

The IMSI is a data element commonly used by the operator community to detect fraud. To change the format of the IMSI would render most detection and prevention useless thereby exposing networks to increased financial loss.   

Historical searches for IMSIs spanning the transition will have to be split into two reports, one before and one after search. Usage variation alarms for all the numbers that change will effectively start from scratch. Similarly, any IMSIs that had previously been hot-listed for the purposes of fraud monitoring would need to be replaced. 

One impact, from a fraud and security point of view, would be the cost of modifying fraud management systems that are currently used by home networks to monitor for fraudulent calling patterns based on individual IMSIs. It also likely that the length of time it would take to run the additional reports required would increase.

GSM operators currently have mechanisms in place that allow for the exchange of IMSIs, and other data, which may identify fraud. Such exchanges can be transacted electronically through the use of near real time data exchange systems across the SS7 signalling network. Such systems would need to be upgraded to accommodate changed MNCs.

The ITU-T Recommendation E.212 defines mobile country codes as well as mobile network codes. The mobile country code consists of 3 decimal digits and the mobile network code consists of 2 or 3 decimal digits (for example: MNC of 001 is not the same as MNC of 01). The first digit of the mobile country code identifies the geographic region as follows (the digits 1 and 8 are not used):

A mobile country code (MCC) is used in combination with a mobile network code (MNC) (a combination known as an "MCC/MNC tuple") to uniquely identify a mobile network operator (carrier) using the GSM (including GSM-R), UMTS, and LTEpublic land mobile networks. Some but not all CDMA, iDEN, and satellite mobile networks are identified with an MCC/MNC tuple as well. For WiMAX networks, a globally unique Broadband Operator ID can be derived from the MCC/MNC tuple.[1]TETRA networks use the mobile country code from ITU-T Recommendation E.212 together with a 10-bit binary mobile network code. However, a TETRA network may be assigned an E.212 network code as well. Some network operators do not have their own radio access network at all. These are called mobile virtual network operators (MVNO) and are marked in the tables as such. Note that MVNOs without their own MCC/MNC (that is, they share the MCC/MNC of their host network) are not listed here.

The following tables attempt to provide a complete list of mobile network operators. Country information, including ISO 3166-1 country codes is provided for completeness. Mostly for historical reasons, one E.212 MCC may correspond to multiple ISO country codes (e.g. MCC 362 corresponds to BQ, CW, and SX). Some operators also choose to use an MCC outside the geographic area that it was assigned to (e.g. Digicel uses the Jamaica MCC throughout the Caribbean). ITU-T publishes an official list of mobile network codes from time to time in the Operational Bulletin.[2] Unfortunately, the official list is often incomplete as national MNC Authorities do not forward changes to the ITU in a timely manner. The official list does not provide additional details such as bands and technologies and may not list disputed territories such as Abkhazia or Kosovo.
