22.2403GPPRelease 17Service requirements for 3GPP Generic User Profile (GUP)Stage 1TS
For the purposes of the present document, the following terms and definitions apply:
3GPP Generic User Profile (GUP): The 3GPP Generic User Profile is the collection of user related data which affects the way in which an individual user experiences services and which may be accessed in a standardised manner as described in this specification. The Generic User Profile is defined using the W3C XML recommendation .
GUP Component (logical): A GUP component is logically an individual part of the Generic User Profile.
GUP Component instance (physical): a GUP component instance is a physical representation of a GUP component. To one GUP component (logical) correspond one or more component instances, i.e. physical copies. Component instances may be located in the Home Network, in the Value Added Service Provider Environment and/or the User Equipment.
GUP Data Element: the indivisible unit of Generic User Profile information.
GUP Data Model: The data model describing the data structure, the way the data elements are defined and the relationship to each other.
Data Description Method: A method describing how to define the data contained in the Generic User Profile. The description is defined using the W3C XML Schemas recommendations , .
Master component instance (aka master instance): Among the component instances (physical) associated with a GUP component (logical), one of them is tagged with the role of "master instance". The master component instance is responsible for the correct value of the corresponding GUP component.
Public User Identity: Identity which is used to communicate with other users.
User: for definition see 3GPP TR 21.905 . In addition the present document assumes, that the user has a unique identity in the 3GPP system (IMSI or IMS Private ID) and is associated with one 3GPP subscriber. (Note, that a user may have many addresses though! E.g. the user can have several Public User IDs). The user is not necessarily identical to the 3GPP subscriber.
Further 3GPP system related definitions are given in 3GPP TR 21.905 .
