3GPP Glossaries:  Interfaces / Reference Points
for letter 'G' (3 of 4)

 

Gm   (SIP)

Up       Top

between  UE
and  P-CSCF

see it   here

specified from  Rel-5  in
TS 23.228, clause 4.4 

The Gm reference point supports the SIP-based communication between a UE and a P-CSCF (acting as a SIP Proxy) in an IMS core network. The P-CSCF may be located in a visited IMS core network or in the User's Home IMS core network.


Gmb   (Diameter)

Up       Top

between  GGSN
and  BM-SC

specified from  Rel-6  in
TS 23.246, clause 4.3
TS 29.061, clause 17 

This reference point is used to exchange signalling between GGSN and a Broadcast-Multicast Service Centre (BM-SC). This represents the network side boundary of the MBMS Bearer Service from a control plane perspective. This includes user specific Gmb signalling and MBMS bearer service specific signalling.


Gmc

Up       Top

between  GGSN
and  RNS

specified from  Rel-6  in
TS 23.246, clause 4.2.1
TS 23.002, clause 6a.10.3
TS 29.281 

This reference point is used between GGSN and RNS (or BSS Iu mode) for MBMS data delivery using IP multicast.


Gn   (GTP)

Up       Top

between  SGSN
and  GGSN / SGSN

see it   here

specified from  GSM Rel-97  in
TS 03.60, clause 5.6.2.6
TS 09.60   …   TS 29.060 

These interfaces are used to support mobility between the SGSN and GGSN. The Gn interface is used when GGSN and SGSN are located inside one PLMN. The Gp-interface is used if GGSN and SGSN are located in different PLMNs. The Gn/Gp interface also includes a part which allows SGSNs to communicate subscriber and user data, when changing SGSN.


Go

Up       Top

between  GGSN
and  PDF

specified from  Rel-5  to  Rel-6  in
TS 29.207 

This interface allows the Policy Decision Function (PDF) to apply policy to the bearer usage in the GGSN.


Gp

Up       Top

between  SGSN
and  GGSN

specified from  GSM Rel-97  in
TS 03.60, clause 5.6.2.6
TS 09.60   …   TS 29.060 

The Gp interface provides the functionality of the Gn interface, plus security functionality required for inter-PLMN communication. The security functionality is based on mutual agreements between operators.


Gq

Up       Top

between  AF
and  PDF

specified for  Rel-6  in
TS 29.209 

This interface allows for dynamic QoS-related service information to be exchanged between the Policy Decision Function (PDF) and the Application Function (AF). This information is used by the PDF for service based local policy decisions.


Gr   (MAP)

Up       Top

between  SGSN
and  HLR

see it   here

specified from  GSM Rel-97  in
TS 03.60, clause 5.6.2.2 

This interface is used to exchange the data related to the location of the mobile station and to the management of the subscriber. The main service provided to the mobile subscriber is the capability to transfer packet data within the whole service area. The SGSN informs the HLR of the location of a mobile station managed by the latter. The HLR sends to the SGSN all the data needed to support the service to the mobile subscriber. Exchanges of data may occur when the mobile subscriber requires a particular service, when he wants to change some data attached to his subscription or when some parameters of the subscription are modified by administrative means.


Gs   (SS7 BSSAP+)

Up       Top

between  MSC/VLR
and  SGSN

see it   here

specified from  GSM Rel-97  in
TS 03.60, clause 5.6.2.3
TS 09.16   …   TS 29.016
TS 09.18   …   TS 29.018 

The Gs interface is used to provide co-ordination between the GSM circuit switched services controlled at the Visitor Location Register (VLR) and the GSM packet switched services controlled at the Serving GPRS Support Node (SGSN). The procedures on the Gs interface are intended to optimise the use of the resources when an MS supports both GSM circuit switched services and GSM packet switched services.

Messages on the Gs-interface are defined in TS 23.018, clause 8.7.


Gw

Up       Top

between  PCEF
and  PFDF

see it   here

specified from  Rel-14  in
TS 23.203, clause 5.2.16
TS 29.251, clause 4 

The Gw reference point is used for provisioning and removal of PFDs from the PFDF to the PCEF and reporting the handling result of PFDs from the PCEF to the PFDF.


Gwn

Up       Top

between  TDF
and  PFDF

see it   here

specified from  Rel-14  in
TS 23.203, clause 5.2.17
TS 29.251, clause 5 

The Gwn reference point enables transport of PFDs from the PFDF to the TDF for a particular Application Identifier or for a set of Application Identifiers.
