WWAN_REGISTRATION_STATE structure

The WWAN_REGISTRATION_STATE structure represents the registration state of the MB device.

Syntax


typedef struct _WWAN_REGISTRATION_STATE {
  ULONG               uNwError;
  WWAN_REGISTER_STATE RegisterState;
  WWAN_REGISTER_MODE  RegisterMode;
  WCHAR               ProviderId[WWAN_PROVIDERID_LEN];
  WCHAR               ProviderName[WWAN_PROVIDERNAME_LEN];
  WCHAR               RoamingText[WWAN_ROAMTEXT_LEN];
  DWORD               WwanRegFlags;
  WWAN_CELLULAR_CLASS CurrentCellularClass;
} WWAN_REGISTRATION_STATE, *PWWAN_REGISTRATION_STATE;

Members

uNwError

A network specific error, in the event of a registration failure. For more information about this member, see the following "Remarks" section.

RegisterState

The registration state of the device. For a list of defined values, see WWAN_REGISTER_STATE.

The WwanRegisterStatePartner value indicates the device is roaming on a preferred partner network provider, whereas WwanRegisterStateRoaming value indicates the device is just roaming. If the partner characterization of the roaming state is not available, the miniport driver should report WwanRegisterStateRoaming.

RegisterMode

The registration mode of the device. For a list of defined values, see WWAN_REGISTER_MODE.

ProviderId

A NULL-terminated numeric (0-9) string that represents the network provider identity.

For GSM-based networks, this string is a concatenation of a three-digit Mobile Country Code (MCC) and a two or three-digit Mobile Network Code (MNC). GSM-based carriers may have more than one MNC, and hence more than one ProviderId .

For CDMA-based networks, this string is a five-digit System ID (SID). Generally, a CDMA-based carrier has more than one SID. Typically, a carrier has one SID for each market, which is usually divided geographically within a nation by regulations, such as Metropolitan Statistical Areas (MSA) in the United States of America. Miniport drivers of CDMA-based devices must specify WWAN_CDMA_DEFAULT_PROVIDER_ID if this information is not available.

When processing a query request, and the registration state is in automatic register mode, this member contains the provider ID that the device is currently associated with (if applicable). When the registration state is in manual register mode, this member contains the provider ID that the device is requested to register with (even if the provider is unavailable).

When processing a set request and the registration state is in manual mode, this contains the provider ID selected by the MB Service for the device to register with. When the registration state is in automatic register mode, this parameter is ignored.

CDMA 1xRTT providers must be set to WWAN_CDMA_DEFAULT_PROVIDER_ID if the provider ID is not available.

ProviderName

A NULL-terminated string that represents the network provider's name. This member is limited to, at most, WWAN_PROVIDERNAME_LEN characters.

For GSM-based networks, if the Preferred Presentation of Country Initials and Mobile Network Name (PPCI&N) is longer than twenty characters, the miniport driver should abbreviate the network name.

This member is ignored when the MB Service sets the preferred provider list.

Miniport drivers should specify a NULL string for devices that do not have this information.

RoamingText

A NULL-terminated string to inform the user that the device is roaming. This member is limited to at most WWAN_ROAMTEXT_LEN characters.

This text should provide additional information to the user when the registration state is either WwanRegisterStatePartner or WwanRegisterStateRoaming. This member is optional.

WwanRegFlags

Registration flags.

ValueMeaning

WWAN_REG_FLAGS_NONE

No registration flags.

WWAN_REG_FLAGS_NO_MANUAL_REG

No manual attach.

WWAN_REG_FLAGS_PS_AUTO_ATTACH

Iindicates that the MB device manages its own packet context. The MB Service will not send a packet detach to the miniport driver, but may send a packet attach.

 

CurrentCellularClass

The current cellular class of the registered network. For networks that only support a single cellular class this member should be set to that cellular class. For multi-mode capable networks the miniport driver sends NDIS_STATUS_WWAN_REGISTER_STATE notifications to the MB service when the network changes its cellular class.

Remarks

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 registration 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 network registration 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_REGISTRATION_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_REGISTRATION_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 de-registers the device (for example, the network de-registered the device because the device's subscription expired) 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_REGISTRATION_STATE structure to WWAN_STATUS_SUCCESS and set the uNwError member to the network specific error code.

To return a network specific error when processing OID_WWAN_REGISTER_STATE requests, miniport drivers should set the uStatus member of the NDIS_WWAN_REGISTRATION_STATE structure to WWAN_STATUS_FAILURE 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.

Miniport drivers connected to a multi-mode network should indicate the cellular class change through a NDIS_STATUS_WWAN_REGISTER_STATE notification.
