About patterns

When adding a rule, use the following formats:

  • Prefix, for example, range 31* for MCC matches MCC from 310 to 319.
  • Range, for example, range 310-319 for MCC matches MCC from 310 to 319.
  • Mobile Country Code (MCC) consists of three digits. The MCC identifies the country of domicile of the mobile subscriber.
  • Mobile Network Code (MNC) consists of two or three digits for GSM/UMTS applications. The MNC identifies the home PLMN of the mobile subscriber. The length of the MNC (two or three digits) depends on the value of the MCC. Best practices dictate not to mix two and three digit MNC codes within a single MCC area.
  • Location Area Code (LAC) is a fixed length code (of 2 octets) identifying a location area within a PLMN. This part of the location area identification can be coded using a full hexadecimal representation except for the following reserved hexadecimal values: 0000 and FFFE. These reserved values are used in some special cases when no valid LAI exists in the MS (see 3GPP TS 24.008, 3GPP TS 31.102 and 3GPP TS 51.011).
  • Routing Area Code (RAC) of a fixed length code (of 1 octet) identifies a routing area within a location.
  • CI or SAC of a fixed length of 2 octets can be coded using a full hexadecimal expression.
  • Type Allocation Code (TAC) has a length of 8 digits.
  • Serial Number (SNR) is an individual serial number identifying each equipment within each TAC. SNR has a length of 6 digits.
  • Software Version Number (SVN) identifies the software version number of the mobile equipment. SVN has a length of 2 digits.
