4.0.0.4

  • Update FetchTLDN feature to check the digits fields returned in the LOCREQ response if there is no TerminationList included. (VOLTE-9791)

  • Update FetchTLDN feature to set TransactionCapability parameter in the LOCREQArg. This ensures we receive a TerminationList in the LOCREQResult from the HLR. (VOLTE-9751)

  • Fix a bug in the threshold alarm for sip-sis-inbound and sip-sis-failover. Also disable the ramp-up portion of the respective rate limiters (VOLTE-9782).

  • Increase sip-sis-ra default service timeout from 5 seconds to 10 seconds. (VOLTE-9790)

  • Update SCC GSM Re-Origination features to store correlation data in cassandra (VOLTE-9682, VOLTE-9683).

  • Correct the behaviour of TADS message delivery when TADSEndSessionWhenNoValidRouteFound is true. (VOLTE-9615)

  • Replace 'No subscriber service data' warnings generated by MMTel features with 'FallbackToNetworkDefaultServiceConfig' statistic (VOLTE-5651).

  • Allow disabling reorigination-bypass when users are roaming with the always-term-reoriginate-if-served-user-is-roaming option. (VOLTE-9713)

  • Installs now come with a default rate limiting structure that is connected to the SIP SIS inbound_invites endpoint. The limiters are bypassed=true by default, meaning that they need to be altered (bypass=false) in order to take effect. When they are altered with bypass=false Initial INVITE requests are subject to overload control. Default values include a maximum number of activities, a maximum size for MemDB-Local, and a maximum rate of Initial INVITE requests per second. (VOLTE-9724)

  • Installs also come with threshold alarms, that are not activated. A minor alarm is raised when the MemDB-Local is above 70% full, and cleared when it is less than 70% full for 5 minutes. This is defined in the memdb-size-rejecting-work threshold rule. A minor alarm is raised when the number of active activities is above 70,000, and cleared when it is less than 70,000 for 5 minutes. This is defined in the active-activities-rejecting-work threshold rule. A major alarm is raised when the sip-sis-inbound rate limiter (or parent) rejects work and is cleared after 5 minutes of no work rejection. This corresponds to the sip-sis-inbound-rejecting-work threshold rule. A major alarm is raised when the sip-sis-failover rate limiter (or parent) rejects work and is cleared after 5 minutes of no work rejection. This corresponds to the sip-sis-failover-rejecting-work threshold rule. (VOLTE-9667)

  • Changed the SIS composition on-timeout behaviour when invoking the Registrar from ignore-and-continue to terminate-processing. The SIS will no longer forward the request (based on the Request-URI) and instead send a 504 response to the received REGISTER request. Also changed the status code of the response sent on SIS trigger failure from 503 to 500. (VOLTE-9376)

Dependency Updates

  • Fix a pair of SDP analysis issues in the MMTel hold feature. (VOLTE-9321)

    • The feature will now ignore disabled media streams (where the port is 0).

    • Directionality attributes (e.g. sendrecv) that appear on media streams will now take precedence over directionality attributes defined globally for the session when checking if an individual media stream has been held or resumed.

3.1.0.1

  • Update SentinelVolteAndRegistrarOriginatingTrigger and SentinelSipServiceAndImssfOrigTrigger to explicitly identify the P-Served-User "orig-cdiv" parameter. If present invoke originating processing for the served user. The lack of explicit handling for the P-Served-User "orig-cdiv" parameter resulted in the incorrect invocation of terminating processing. (VOLTE-8722)

  • Fix logic issue in MMTelCW that resulted in the feature raising FeatureFailedToExecute when triggered on a TimerEvent other than the call waiting timer. (VOLTE-8630)

  • Fix imssf-term-composition resetting request URI for T-ADS. (VOLTE-8241)

  • Improved post-execution heap retention behavior of most pojo feature FSMs though use of new registerActionImplementationForNextExecute FSM method. (VOLTE-8690)

  • Improved how FetchMSRN feature determines when it should be run, to rerun when necessary for serial companion situations, but not in non companion PS-CS fallback case. (VOLTE-8560)

  • Add a Feature Group to REM to gather all Companion Device Support configuration. (VOLTE-8672)

Dependency Updates

  • Update the Sentinel Common dependency to 3.1.0.1

3.1.0.0

  • First release in the 3.1.0.x series.

New Functionality - Companion Devices

Add support for companion devices using PS or CS networks. Companion devices are VoLTE UEs that are linked to a primary device such as a smart phone. Smart watches are a common type of companion device. Architecture documentation for this capability is described in Companion Devices.

  • Add DetermineSharedAndUndisclosedIdentities feature, which determines if a call is made to a companion device undisclosed identity. If true, a flag is set to bar the call by the MMTelICB feature. (VOLTE-7978)

  • Add HideUndisclosedIdentity feature, which is used to hide the identity of calls made from a companion device. (VOLTE-8064)

  • Add SCCTADSDetermineCircuitRoutes feature, which is used to determine any CS routes for companion device calls. (VOLTE-7985)

  • Update Metaswitch-TAS-Services schema to support multiple companion devices including additional device attributes. (VOLTE-7940)

  • Add extensions column to Cassandra Third Party Registration assocuris table table to support PATH headers. (VOLTE-8358)

  • Update MMTelICB feature to support general incoming barring. This is used as part of barring undisclosed companion identities. (VOLTE-7995)

  • Update SetCompanionDeviceHeader feature to support new companion device attributes. (VOLTE-8014)

  • Add new stats to SCCTADSDataLookup feature

  • Add new stat to SCCTADSParallelRouting feature

  • Add new stats to SCCTADSRouting feature

    • Remove stat RouteToPreferredCSFailed

New Functionality - IM-SSF Active Call Failover

Add support for active call failover in Sentinel VoLTE SIP flows that use the IM-SSF for CAP charging. Note that the CAP dialog will not failover so charging will stop on failover. (VOLTE-7780)

  • Update the CapLocationHeaders feature to add a new OC-Replication-Information custom header. The header contains information about session replication behaviour in Sentinel which the IM-SSF uses to configure its own replication and session tracking behaviour. SIS compositions strip this header automatically after the IM-SSF service has run. (VOLTE-8203)

New Functionality - Dial Plan Enforcement

Add support to reject calls with announcements if dialed digits are not in required format.

  • Add DialPlanEnforcement feature which provides improved validation of dialed digit strings. (VOLTE-8251)

  • Add experimental LocalDialingNormalization feature which provides support for automatically adding an area code when a subscriber dials a local number. (VOLTE-8270)

Other Changes

  • Updated the default number of CDRs per CDR file for the IM-SSF to make it consistent with MMTel. The new default is 1000 CDRs per CDR file before triggering CDR file roll-over. (VOLTE-8284)

  • Improve sending CANCEL request error handling in the IM-SSF. (VOLTE-8330)

  • Set isLoggedIn in IMSIDLookup and IMSIDLookupFromCassandraSIP features based on P-Served-User, even if query fails. (VOLTE-7778)

  • Update MMTelCDIV to use legManager.releaseLeg() rather than legManager.detachFromLeg() when re-targeting. Using detachFromLeg() affects leg state immediately and can cause subsequent features to error if the detached leg is also the triggering leg. (VOLTE-5113)

  • Rename XcapDataUpdateActionConfigProfileTable attribute XLMNS to XMLNS (XML NameSpace) as originally intended. (VOLTE-7714)

  • Fix a bug in the flexible alerting features where information about the cause of a retarget would be not be included in re-targeted requests. (VOLTE-7747)

  • Populate access network information using the HLR response in the DetermineRoamingFromHlr. (VOLTE-7614)

  • Remove I-CSCF URI from Conference and ECT feature config. Features will now get the value from the SipSentinelConfigurationTable profile. (VOLTE-8036)

  • Rename SBB feature artifacts from -du.jar to .du.jar. (VOLTE-8239)

  • Changed default encoding of SDP media fields created by javax.sdp.SdpFactory to omit the number of ports suffix, if the number of ports is 1. Encoding of SDP received from other systems, with or without the number of ports, is preserved. See Number of ports in media lines for details. (STLSIP-1294)

  • Stop mapper classes overwriting existing Extension AVPs when writing a new one. (VOLTE-8335)

  • Fix a bug in MMTelDeterminePSAPCallback feature where the planid was not correctly set in SessionState. (VOLTE-8415)

  • Updated SIS composition SentinelSipServiceAndImssfTermComposition to fix an issue with CSRN handling where terminating calls would routed to the original called number instead of the roaming number. This occurred when the IM-SSF received a Connect request with the original called number as DestinationRoutingAddress. (VOLTE-8200)

  • Fix issue in InternationalAndRoamingConfigurer in the installer where duplicate MCCs could be added. (VOLTE-8066)

  • Update SCCTADSDataLookup feature to filter out duplicate Contacts using +sip.instance id (VOLTE-8132)

Dependency Updates

  • Update the Sentinel Common dependency to 3.1.0.0

  • Update the Sentinel SIP dependency to 3.1.0.0

  • Update the Sentinel SS7 dependency to 3.1.0.0

  • Update the IMSSF dependency to 2.7.0.0

3.0.0.2

  • Fix a regression in the FetchMSRN feature, correctly calculate the encoding type of the HLR’s SCCP Address when using the subscriber’s MSISDN to address the HLR (VOLTE-8198)

  • Populate access network information using the HLR response in the DetermineRoamingFromHLRFeature (VOLTE-7614)

  • Fix issue where SCCProcessHandoverInsideAnchor would fail when trying to use the PlmnIdAnalyser for conference PSI comparisions using the MCC and MNC. (VOLTE-7991)

  • Remove a restriction for Re-INVITE based conference calls. (VOLTE-7877) The originating attempt from the moderator towards the conference factory is now able to traverse originating Application Servers. This means that once a conference is established, the conference moderator may access transfer, and the conference continue. Additionally the iFC is simplified as conferencing may be invoked using regular Terminating AS iFC. Each conference factory identity must still remain as a Public Service Identity in order to trigger the terminating MMTel AS for the call towards the conference factory (terminating unregistered). When the originating attempt towards the conference factory occurs - there will now be charging (e.g. Ro / Rf / CDRs) for that session as for any other originating attempt. The IM-SSF proxies Initial Requests without contacting the Service Control Point if the Request-URI (i.e. Conference Factory PSI) is not a phone number. Note: Moderator control of the conference is not transferred to the CS domain as this requires the so called "MSC Server Enhanced for IMS Centralised Services" that is mutually exclusive with the MSC Server invoking CAP triggers for non-roaming subscribers. Additionally the SCC-AS requires several additional capabilities to support the "MSC Server Enhanced for IMS Centralised Services".

  • Fix RemovePreconditionsFields counter of StripPreconditions feature in error call cases. (VOLTE-7833)

  • Update MMTelCDIV to use legManager.releaseLeg() rather than legManager.detachFromLeg() when re-targeting. Using detachFromLeg() affects leg state immediately and can cause subsequent features to error if the detached leg is also the triggering leg. (VOLTE-5113)

Dependency Updates

  • Update the IMSSF dependency to 2.6.2.5

    • Disarm noAnswer event is cleared after Answer (PRX-284)

  • Add experimental support for Companion Devices on PS networks. (VOLTE-7402)

    • Update Metaswitch-TAS-Services schema to support operator provisioning of companion device information in user data.

    • Update SubscriberDataLookupFromHSS feature to retrieve companion device information if available.

    • Update SCC T-ADS features to ensure that primary and companion devices are alerted in parallel, including when the primary device is attached to the CS network.

  • Add StripPreconditions feature, which optionally removes SDP preconditions from the initial INVITE before it is forked, to work around other network elements that may not support handling preconditions on multiple forked early dialogs. (VOLTE-7579)

  • Add padding 0 to 2 digit MNCs within generated P-Visited-Network-Id during reorigination. (VOLTE-7880)

Other Changes

  • Fix a bug in the flexible alerting features where information about the cause of a retarget would be not be included in retargeted requests. (VOLTE-7747)

  • Fix a bug in OCB feature which threw NPE when a prefix barring address list entry was deleted without refreshing the addresslist cache. (VOLTE-7834)

  • Fix a bug in SCCTADSParallelRouting feature where downstream forked response does not get forwarded. (VOLTE-7463)

  • Add Request-Disposition: no-fork header in the outgoing INVITEs initiated by SCC TADS parallel routing feature. (VOLTE-7459, VOLTE-7775)

    • The header will be added to all CS legs

    • The header will be added to PS legs if +sip.instance routing is enabled

2.9.0.0

  • First release in the 2.9.0.x series.

New Functionality

  • Add support for Ro and Rf charging failover (VOLTE-6070). See Changes in Major Release for details.

  • The Sh Cache RA has been removed, and replaced by the Sh Cache Microservice. See Changes in Major Release for details.

  • Added Support for Vertical Service Codes. (VOLTE-6729) See Vertical Service Code Features for details.

  • Added support for PSAP call backs. (VOLTE-6899) See Changes in Major Release for details.

    • PSAP call backs may be identified in two ways. Firstly using a SIP priority header in the incoming INVITE of the call back. Or alternatively, using a SIP MESSAGE received from the E-CSCF when the original PSAP call was placed, which sets a time limited flag to treat all terminating calls to that subscriber within a configured period as PSAP callbacks.

    • Once PSAP call back is identified a different session plan is applied and several MMTel services are disabled.

    • This function is disabled by default.

  • Add capability to redirect a call instead of barring it when evaluating operator-specific barring rules in the Outgoing Call Barring feature. (VOLTE-6448) See SDK Changes in Major Release for more details.

  • Add FetchIMCSI feature to query the HLR in order to retrieve CSI data for the served user, which is passed on to the IMSSF for charging purposes. (VOLTE-6542)

  • Add DetermineLocationFromMSRN feature, which determines the two-letter ISO country code for a subscriber’s location from their MSRN if the ExtractNetworkInformation feature is unable to find the country code by other means. The feature only runs in the GSM T-ADS only session plan. (VOLTE-6788)

Other Changes

  • Add option to use a different format for the P-V-NI header when performing SCC reorigination (VOLTE-6579)

  • Add configuration to allow non international format destination numbers to always be considered national (VOLTE-6424)

  • Fix a bug in MMTel Call Barring features that meant a SIP URI with digits would not match a proisioned Tel URI. (VOLTE-7027)

  • Updated the installer to configure the ISOCode for the home network. (VOLTE-7001)

  • Update the SentinelVolteAndRegistrarTerminating and SentinelSipServiceAndImssfTerm SIS compositions to not invoke SCC after MMTelCDIV has retargeted. (VOLTE-6973)

  • The SIS now raises an alarm during activation if it is unable to resolve it’s own DNS domain name. Previously installation would fail if the domain name was not resolvable. (SIS-1406)

  • Add session state support to MMTelOIR feature for overriding PRESENTATION_RESTRICTION behavior specified in the subscribers MMTelServices data. (VOLTE-6845)

  • Updated the installer to configure SIP virtual addresses with DNS names and always enable RFC-3263 failover Session Replication installation checklist (VOLTE-6561)

  • Remove the MaxCallDuration feature from default feature execution scripts as its functionality has been folded into the SessionRefresh feature. (VOLTE-6056)

  • Add support for triggering charging announcements using the Announcement-Information AVP to the SetOcsAnnouncementId feature. (VOLTE-6057)

  • Update MMTelCommonSessionState to extend SipAnnouncementSessionState and update MMTelCDIV, MMTelHold, MMTelCW, MMTelICB, and MMTelOCB features to use new announcement session state fields. (VOLTE-6233)

  • Update DetermineInternationalAndRoamingStatus feature to consider the ISO country code for the served user if it is available and an MCC/MNC is not. (VOLTE-6786)

  • Add support for only charging terminating calls when the served user is roaming outside their home country when using CAP charging. (VOLTE-6786)

  • Change the default for the SuppressForCSTerminatingDomain MMTelCDIV feature option to false. (VOLTE-6710)

  • Change SCCCamelToIMSReOriginationSIPFeature to use a local tel: URL when dialled digits cannot be converted to a global tel: URL. The local tel: URL will contain a phone-context=+<country_code> parameter. (VOLTE-6950)

  • Changed T-ADS sequential routing to no longer consider whether a PS attempt was using blind routing when deciding if an error response should trigger CS fallback. (VOLTE-5073)

    • The configuration field for setting the fallback response codes has been renamed from BlindRoutingCSFallbackResponseCodes to PSToCSFallbackResponseCodes.

    • The feature statistic incremented when this behaviour is triggered has been renamed from ReceivedBlindPSRoutingResponse to ReceivedPSToCSFallbackResponseCode.

  • The History-Info header manipulation utility classes have been moved from com.opencloud.volte.sentinel.mmtel.feature.common.sip to com.opencloud.sentinel.sip.header.historyinfo. Use of HistoryInfo and related classes in com.opencloud.volte.sentinel.mmtel.feature.common.sip must be updated to use the moved classes. HistoryInfoUtil remains to provide MMTel specific behaviour relating to communication diversion but has been renamed to MMTelHistoryInfoUtil.

  • Add enhancements for feature execution script handling. (VOLTE-6930)

    • Add VolTE service config profile and feature which controls various feature execution alternatives.

    • Use of the DetermineRoamingFromHlr feature is now determined from VolTE service config instead of the alternative MMTel_HLR_* feature scripts.

    • Use of the FetchMSRN feature in GSM deployments is now determined from VolTE service config instead of the alternative SCC*HLR* feature scripts.

    • Use of the Cassandra or the HSS for registration data retrieval is now determined from VolTE service config instead of the various alternative feature scripts.

    • Use of the FetchTLDN feature in CDMA deployments is now determined from VolTE service config instead of the alternative SCC*HLR* feature scripts.

    • Changed the DetermineVoltePlanId feature to proxy an incoming request if it cannot determine an appropriate plan ID for it, instead of running bare-bones B2BUA execution scripts.

    • Changed the DetermineVoltePlanId feature so that it will not change the plan ID of the session if it has already been set by an earlier feature.

    • Charging B2BUA scripts used by VoLTE basic development deployment have been modernised and are now only deployed and used in the basic dev package.

  • A new VoLTE_Proxy_Sip_Request feature script is introduced that results in a SIP request being proxied. (VOLTE-7158)

    • This is now the default script for SubscriptionStart, SipTransaction_Start, and SipAccess_SessionStart execution scripts.

    • Proxy is no longer instructed within the SCCDetermineSessionType feature when a session ID cannot be determined for a SIP Message request and the proxySessionAndDoNotRecordRoute statistic is removed.

  • Police IMRN during reorigination to make sure calls do not get hijacked. (VOLTE-7014)

  • Add SAS logging to SetOcsAnnouncementId feature. (VOLTE-6021)

  • Add SAS logging to IMSIDLookup feature. (VOLTE-6020)

  • Update DetermineRoamingFromHLR feature to perform an ATI if a SIP response indicates the terminating user is in a CS network. A new feature script MMTelTerm_HLR_SipAccess_PartyResponse has been created to run DetermineRoamingFromHLR on initial SIP responses. On installation, if GSM is enabled this feature script will be configured to run at the SipAccess_PartyResponse:sipcall:mmtel-term: execution point. (VOLTE-6429)

  • Update SCCCamelToIMSReOriginationSIPFeature to set OC-VLR-Number value to be in a parsable format. (VOLTE-6155)

  • If the MMTelCDIV NoReplyTimer is set outside the allowed range (5-180), set it to the minimum or maximum allowed value. (VOLTE-6205)

  • Add missing SAS event for SendRoutingInfo-v3Request in FetchMSRN feature. (VOLTE-6328)

  • Reject XCAP provisioning requests that contain non-normalizable numbers, and normalize CDIV targets and ICB/OCB conditions. The XCAP server pulls in the configuration from Rhino, with a configurable caching duration. (VOLTE-6211 - VOLTE-6216)

  • Make MMTel features no-op if subscriber data indicates feature is not authorized. The default behaviour when operator data is not present is configurable (true/false). When provisioning a subscriber through REM or the REST server, all authorized flags are now mandatory. To make this new functionality work for MMTelCONF in existing installations, add the relevant SubscriberDataLookup feature to the MMTelConf_SipAcess_SubscriberCheck feature script. (VOLTE-6232, VOLTE-6254 - VOLTE-6257, VOLTE-6312)

  • Make MMTelCDIV and MMTelICB/MMTelOCB support raw numbers. If the subscriber provisions a raw number (i.e. not a sip or tel URI), interpret this as a tel URI. (VOLTE-6288)

  • Add a list of non-provisionable retarget URIs to the MMTelCDIV feature and XCAP provisioning service. If a subscriber tries to provision a retargeting rule with a target on the non-provisionable retargeting list, the request is denied. Before MMTelCDIV retargets a request, it checks if the new target is on the non-provisionable retargeting list. If so, the retargeting rule is ignored. (VOLTE-6217 - VOLTE-6221)

  • Update default Post_SipAccess_SubscriberCheck execution scripts to run RecordTimestamps feature. (VOLTE-6412)

  • Fix a bug in the DetermineRoamingFromHLR feature. If the feature was unable to send a MAP AnytimeInterrogation Request it would pause execution for five seconds. (VOLTE-6317)

  • Update DetermineRoamingFromHLRFeature to extract phone number from the SIP URI regardless of whether user=phone parameter is present. (VOLTE-6317)

New Session Replication Capabilities

  • Add support for session replication and failover for MMTel and SCC sessions. This support is optional, the product can be used without the capabililty. Architecture documentation for this capability is described in Session Replication. DNS configuration to support session replication and failover is described in Non-sharded DNS configuration and SRV configuration for fail-over of sticky sessions.

  • In order to support session replication and failover, the External Session Tracking features have been replaced and a new Facility has been added to Rhino, the Session Ownership Facility. The External Session Tracking features have been replaced with a single feature called External Session Tracking.

  • A new feature, named Access Leg Tracking is responsible for SR-VCC specific tracking logic within the SCC-AS.

  • Features gain support for session replication in a near transparent manner through the new Rhino 2.6.1 Key/Value Store. Software changes to enable session replication have been performed underneath existing APIs. For standard or "out of the box" features, this meant migrating API calls from SipSession.get/setAttribute to Sentinel Session state CMP fields. SipSession.get/setAttribute API still exist and function as they did previously, i.e. do not replicate. Custom features should use Session State, i.e. CMP APIs for their state variables.

  • Additional semantics and annotations for CMP fields have been added to Rhino. For details please refer to CMP Field Enhancements within Rhino 2.6.1 documentation.

  • Support for replicated SIP Dialogs has been added to the SIP-SIS. For details please refer to SIP Session Replication

Support for CDMA VCC-AS functionality

  • Add support for CDMA traffic in O-SDS and T-SDS (Reorigination) scenarios and in T-ADS delivery to CS. See CDMA and SIP support for SCC for a description of the architecture, CDMAFetchTLDN for a description of the T-ADS functionality, and CDMA Reorigination Service for a description of the reorigination service.

  • Support for deploying SIS without CGIN for GSM has been added to the SIS, see xref:<sis-documentation/2.6.1>whats-new-in-this-version/what-s-new-in-this-version#split-sis-packages[Split SIS packages]

Miscellaneous Updates

  • The Diameter Ro Resource Adaptor has been updated to the 3.1.0.x release series, enabling AVP version downgrade/upgrade between Rel 12 and older versions. The Ro Resource Adaptor can now be configured with a SLEE API version that is different to the "wire" protocol version for the OCS. Downgrading from Rel 12 is supported as far back as Rel 8.13.0. For further information refer to Diameter Resource Adaptors Changelog.

  • The Sentinel Registrar service has been re-written in terms of Sentinel SIP. This means 3rd Party Registration features are programmed the same way as other SIP features, simplifying development. Further information on this updated Third Party Registration architecture is available in Sentinel Registrar Overview and Concepts.

  • Sentinel VoLTE extends Third Party Registration storage to add support for Third Party Registration inside Transparent Data in the HSS. This means that Sentinel VoLTE can store Third Party Registration state inside either Cassandra, or HSS transparent data.

  • All Sentinel VoLTE specific third party registration features have been re-worked in terms of the updated Third Party Registration support. For further information refer to Third Party Registration features.

  • The Sh Cache RA has been updated to support cluster wide cache invalidation, and better handling for the Sh Subscribe Notifications Request/Push Notifications Request. Sh Cache Resource Adaptor documentation is now included in its own book.

    • Allow CAP IDP triggers that contain a VLR number, where the VLR number is not mapped to Visited Network ID configuration in the SCC-AS to be routed into the IMS

    • When the SCC-AS is triggered due to IMRN (i.e. from the I-CSCF after a CAP triggered call has been re-routed into the IMS), add the OC-VLR-Number and P-Visited-Network-ID / OC-Term-P-Visited-Network-ID headers conditionally based on the content of the original IDP and configuration and restore the B number. Previous behaviour was that if either the VLR number was missing, or configuration could not find an appropriate Visited Network ID the INVITE due to IMRN was rejected through a SIP error response.

    • Add the following statistics to both the SccReoriginationIN and SccReoriginationSIP features:

      • IdpVlrNumberPresent, IdpVlrNumberNotPresent

      • VisitedNetworkIdFound, VisitedNetworkIdNotFound

  • Change the MAP operation used by the FetchMSRN feature to SRI (VOLTE-3876).

  • Add support for T-ADS to route via the I-CSCF such that no other SIP-AS may be invoked via iFC after T-ADS has executed (VOLTE-3785).

  • Add support for PS routing based on public-GRUU to the T-ADS features. This allows specific registered targets to be selected by T-ADS in cases of simultaneous registration, rather than allow the IMS to fork (VOLTE-3520).

  • Extend defensive timer support in T-ADS when PS-then-CS routing, such that no SIP response triggers an attempt to route via CS (VOLTE-3406).

2.6.0.2

  • Re-formatted feature execution scripts in VoLTE so that they are multi-line, improving readability. (VOLTE-3420)

  • Fix a bug in the module pack for the IMSIDLookup feature. The bug was due to an incorrect dependency. (VOLTE-3476)

  • Fix a bug in SCC where SCC would track sessions if it received a media feature tag of +g.3gpp.srvcc in the Initial transaction, i.e. the Initial request for originating sessions and the dialog creating response for terminating sessions. However as per TS 24.237 UE’s do not use such a media feature tag to indicate support for PS to CS SRVCC transfer of a single active call. It is indicated during UE attach and updating procedures (see TS 24.301 and TS 24.008). (VOLTE-3295)

  • Updates to the SCCTADSDataLookup feature to use an allowed "list" for Radio Access Technology and Access Network Information. Values on the allowed "list" determine if session setup can proceed on the PS domain (VOLTE-1320)

  • SCC-AS populates a new OC-Terminating-Domain custom SIP header, in order to communicate information about the terminating domain to upstream nodes in the network (VOLTE-1322)

  • A new feature MMTelWifiChargingFinalisation ends online charging via Diameter Ro for terminating attempts when the Terminating Domain access network is WiFi (VOLTE-1322)

  • The IM-SSF has been updated to terminate the dialog towards the Prepaid Charging SCP for terminating attempts when the Terminating Domain access network is WiFi (VOLTE-1321)

  • Charging and Calls Terminating in WiFi Networks provides a summary of the default behaviour, made possible through the OC-Terminating-Domain header

  • The installer and configuration have been updated according to these new capabilities (VOLTE-1569)
