TIA issues New cdma2000 Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD)

Arlington, VA (April 24, 2014) – The Telecommunications Industry Association, which develops standards for the information and communications technology industry, has released a new document, TIA-4951-A, cdma2000® Unstructured Supplementary Service Data (USSD).

The TIA-4951-A will enhance USSD to allow for USSD messaging to be sent or received on a common channel. This enhancement will reduce the amount of signaling between the USSD Client (on the MS) and the USSD Gateway for non-transaction oriented applications. This enhancement will improve the utilization of radio network resources when USSD messaging is used for M2M communications.

TIA-4951-A was formulated under the cognizance of the TIA TR-45 Mobile and Point-to-Point Communications Standards, TR-45.8, Core Networks- Mobile and Personal Communications Standards

For more information about TR-45 and how to participate in standards development with TIA, contact Stephanie Montgomery at standards@tiaonline.org.

TIA is actively seeking participation in these projects from the user and general interest communities.

TIA-4951-A and all TIA standards may be purchased at http://global.ihs.com.
