This is no roaming. This is interworking between GSM and CDMA n/w so that a GSM subscriber can send message to CDMA subscriber and visa versa. This is kind of black box that converts the CDMA SMS messages of IS-41 format into GSM MAP format so that the GSM network entities can send that message to The GSM subscribers.
This is in no way roaming.22nd December 2003 at 14:51 #36810SunilGuest
SMS-Interworking doesnt mean that roaming is possible between CDMA2000 and GSM.
But this can provide a step forward towards MAP-Interworking…
AM I correct ?

let us look at the factors which causes the problem and how to overcome them..
1> difference between MIN and IMSI
Imsi is MCC+MNC+SN=15
MIN=10 that is what i KNOW
SO we have do some Mobile GTT to convert MIN in to the format of MCC+MNC+Min=IMSI
2>the Handset factor ,, as per panjak we know people are working in this direction .. or the product might be out and we are yet to know.. GSM+CDMA handset.
3> any other issue …12th January 2004 at 16:21 #36812PankajGuest
You might be aware that CDMA has already implemented full IMSI. It is just that most of the operators need to yet convert their n/w in to full IMSI networks. This will happen but will take time. In fact in India some networks are not even full MIN complient ( meaning that they are using some bulid up numbers not the MIN ranges managed by some independent agency14th January 2004 at 15:42 #36813wawanGuest

And there are some companies from India who provide soft-converters of IS41d GSM MAP protocols.
About GSM1X, it’s not intended to provide roaming capability. You can read from it’s description, that the GSM1X have been created for GSM operators to be able to use CDMA radio network for enchanced radio frequency source of CDMA standart.
What I am interested very much is CDMA CDMA roaming. Does any bode know any company who are doing(offering/ testing) such a roaming service? Thank you in advance..19th February 2004 at 12:37 #36815PankajGuest

However could somebody please come up with some more details on the Trials being done anywhere for the Roaming between GSM & CDMA.1st May 2004 at 20:27 #36822KSR(3SNMS)Guest
Due to many reasons CDMA intl’ roaming is realised using IIFs (vHLR + vMSC + vSMSC.. Possibly)..
This has invoked, these IIF or clearing houses to incorporate GS< CDMA interworking using addtional modules on IIFs... MAP conversion for CDMA to GSM and GSM to CDMA is fairly simple concept on SS7..5th May 2004 at 15:33 #36823ScotGuest
Possible but in Reality I dont know whether anybody tried it or not.
I have seen a product from Lucent for this MAP Conversion.
