3.1 Definitions

Push Data: data sent by the push initiator to the push recipient, of a format known to the receiver (push recipient), and not otherwise defined by the push service.

PLMN: the 3GPP network that receives the push data from the push initiator and ensures the delivery of push data to the push recipient. The delivery of the push data may involve other networks.

Push function: the function in the PLMN that receives the Push Data from the Push initiator. The push function is responsible for delivering the push data to the Push recipient.

Push initiator: the entity that originates push data and submits it to the push function for delivery to a Push recipient. A Push initiator may be e.g. an application providing value added services.

Push recipient: the entity that receives the push data from the Push function and processes or uses it. This may include the UE with which the PLMN communicates with, the user agent with the application level address, and the device, machine or person which uses the push data. A Push recipient is controlled by an individual user .

Push service: a service capability offered by the PLMN. The Push Service is initiated by a Push Initiator in order to transfer push data (e.g. data, multimedia content) from the Push Initiator to the Push Recipient without a previous user action. The Push Service could be used as a basic capability or as component of a value added service.

Push User agent: is any software or device associated with a Push recipient that interprets Push Data to the user. This may include textual browsers, voice browsers, search engines, machine or device interface software, etc.

Push Subscription Profile: a set of parameters indicating the Push recipient’s settings and preferences for the Push Service.
