WWAN_PACKET_SERVICE structure

The WWAN_PACKET_SERVICE structure represents the packet service attachment state of the MB device.

Syntax


typedef struct _WWAN_PACKET_SERVICE {
  ULONG                     uNwError;
  WWAN_PACKET_SERVICE_STATE PacketServiceState;
  ULONG                     AvailableDataClass;
  ULONG                     CurrentDataClass;
} WWAN_PACKET_SERVICE, *PWWAN_PACKET_SERVICE;

Members

uNwError

A network specific error, in the event of a packet-attach or packet-detach failure. For more information about this member, see the following "Remarks" section.

PacketServiceState

The packet service state of the device.

AvailableDataClass

A bitmap that represents which data-classes are available to the device in the current network. For a detailed list of values, see the WwanDataClass member of WWAN_DEVICE_CAPS.

Miniport drivers must set this member to WWAN_DATA_CLASS_NONE when the device is not registered to a network, or when there is no data-class, or when the supported data-class is not available. Miniport drivers must set this member with a valid value when the device is registered to a network.

CurrentDataClass

A single value from the WwanDataClass member in WWAN_DEVICE_CAPS that represents which data-class is currently being used by the device.

For all data services, except HSPA, miniport drivers should set this member to a single WWAN_DATA_CLASS_XXX value. For HSPA data services, miniport drivers should specify a bit-wise OR of WWAN_DATA_CLASS_HSDPA and WWAN_DATA_CLASS_HSUPA.

Miniport drivers must set this member with a valid value and send the appropriate notification when the device changes services, for example, from 1xRTT to 1xEV-DO.

Miniport drivers should set this member to WWAN_DATA_CLASS_CUSTOM if the data-class is not one of the predefined values in the WwanDataClass member of WWAN_DEVICE_CAPS.

Remarks

The current packet-attach service state is typically reflected in the device's user interface.

The MB Service combines the data-classes that are represented in AvailableDataClass with the supported data-classes that are reported with the device's capabilities to display the intersection of the available choices to the user.

If a device also supports a data-class that is anything other than the predefined values in the WwanDataClass member of WWAN_DEVICE_CAPS, the miniport driver should set the WWAN_DATA_CLASS_CUSTOM flag along with the appropriate bitmask defined for the data-class in this member.

Query and set OID requests as well as unsolicited status events use the uNwError member. If there is no network specific error or the network specific error is not known, miniport drivers should set this member to zero. The "Status Indication Structure" section in MB Operational Semantics shows the packet-attach or packet-detach cause code failure values that are defined in the 3GPP TS 24.008 Specification.

The following points provide guidelines on returning network specific error in different scenarios:

  • If the packet-attach operation fails because of network specific error, miniport drivers should return the network specific error in response to query requests. In this case, miniport drivers should set the uStatus member of the NDIS_WWAN_PACKET_SERVICE_STATE structure to WWAN_STATUS_SUCCESS and set the uNwError member to the network specific error code.

  • If a set request fails, miniport drivers should return the network specific error code. In this case, miniport drivers should set the uStatus member of the NDIS_WWAN_PACKET_SERVICE_STATE structure to WWAN_STATUS_FAILURE and set the uNwError member to the network specific error code.

  • Whenever the device registration state changes because the network packet-detaches the device then unsolicited status events should include the network specific error. In this case, the miniport driver should set the uStatus member of the NDIS_WWAN_PACKET_SERVICE_STATE structure to WWAN_STATUS_SUCCESS and set the uNwError member to the network specific error code.

Miniport drivers can provide additional error codes as defined by the GSM standards specification of packet-attach error codes returned by the network. For example, miniport drivers can communicate the 3GPP specification TS 24.008 packet-attach error codes, such as error code 12 (Location area not allowed), to the MB Service through the uNwError member.

Miniport drivers must report the cause code at the earliest possible instance. For example, if the MB device encounters one of these codes when attempting to register the device on with a network provider, the miniport driver should report it at that time.
