This page is an attempt to specify User Provisionning parameters for data bearer services ("Point-To-Point Connection Orientated Network Service" as specified in GSM 02.60). It is more a proposal, a way to share thoughts about it than a final formal specification. These parameters are used by the phone stacks to establish and setup a packet switched communication with the network. They are mainly grouped in two categories:
- Connection profile: the parameters used for activating the PDP context.
- Extra parameters: the parameters used for customizing the usage of the connection by the application, browser, J2ME MIDlet or any other
The proposed parameters are grouped in the following table. Each row is a parameter and is introduced with its name, type and description. The first set of parameters are used for CSD (Circuit Switched Data) service.
|Dial Number||String||Phone number to dial for connecting data service|
The second set of parameters is used for GPRS connections
|APN||String||Access Point Name (as specified in 3GPP TS 07.60)|
The third set of parameters is common to both:
|Profile Name||String||A name for identifying this connection profile object|
|User Identity||String||User you'll authenticate as|
|Password||String||Password to authenticate as User specified by User Identity|
|Authentication Type||enum(None, Secured,Unsecured)||Kind of authentication used, None, PAP, CHAP|
|Linger Time||Number||Number of seconds after last request before releasing connection|
|IP Addr||IpAddr||Requested Internet Address|
|DNS||IpAddr||Internet Address for the DNS server|
