This chapter describes the Network Location Register (NLR) interfaces, and includes the following sections:
•NLR Web Interface Overview
•RNC to NLR Interface
•Network Interface Function (NIF)
NLR Web Interface Overview
The Network Location Register (NLR) presents a web interface which enables operators to add, delete, and modify subscriber and group information. This allows easy viewing for local or remote NLR operators to verify and modify NLR details. This interface also provides for the creation of NLR operator roles and users which allows fine-grained control to restrict particular operators from sensitive NLR informations.
RNC to NLR Interface
The RFSS Network Controller (RNC) uses this interface to access information and profiles for subscribers and groups homed at that RFSS. This interface is also used to update and retrieve visiting subscriber information for mobiles that are temporarily roaming within this RFSS. The interface between the RNC and NLR is an IP-based interface which allows physical separation of the RNC and NLR if required.
Network Interface Function (NIF)
The Network Interface Function (NIF) is used to enable communication between the NLR and the RNC.
