Entering the above command sequence results in the following prompt:
plmn id mcc mcc_num mnc mnc_num [ network-sharing common-plmn mcc mcc_num mnc mnc_num [ plmn-list mcc mcc_num mnc mnc_num [ mcc mcc_num mnc mnc_num+ ] ] ]
no plmn id
Removes the PLMN ID from the configuration.
Creates a PLMN configuration instance based on the PLMN ID (comprised
of the MCC and MNC). In accordance with TS 25.413, the SGSN supports up to 32
PLMN configurations for shared networks.
Specifies the mobile country code (MCC) portion of the PLMN's
The PLMN MCC identifier and can be configured to any
integer value between 100 and 999.
Specifies the mobile network code (MNC) portion of the PLMN's
The PLMN MNC identifier and can be configured to any
2-digit or 3-digit value between 00 and 999.

When network sharing is employed, this set of keywords is required to
define the PLMN Id of the common PLMN. The common PLMN is usually not the same
as the local PLMN.
With the release of 15.0, both 2G and 3G MOCN functionality is now
license controlled and the license is required to use all previously available
network sharing SGSN configuration commands. For additional information,
contact your Cisco Account Representative.
When network sharing is employed and more than two PLMNs are
available, then use the
plmn-list keyword to begin a list of all
Use this command to configure the PLMN associated with the SGSN. There
can only be one PLMN associated with an SGSN unless one of the following
features is enabled and configured: network sharing or multiple PLMN.
For network sharing, use of the
network-sharing keywords make it possible to
identify more than one PLMN. Including the PLMN identified initially. None have
precedence. They are all treated equally but they must each be unique. In a
MOCN configuration, the PLMN list will not be used as there would only be one
For multiple PLMN support, the SGSN can support up to 8 Iu-PS
configurations for PLMNs. These Iu-PS service configurations must be associated
with the SGSN via the
ran-protocol command in the SGSN Service
Use the following command to identify a PLMN by the MCC
