22.2403GPPRelease 17Service requirements for 3GPP Generic User Profile (GUP)Stage 1TS
The present document introduces the requirements and features of a 3GPP Generic User Profile (GUP). The GUP will help overcome some of the challenges associated with the introduction of sophisticated user terminals with widely varying capabilities, hybrid combinations of mobile network domains, the advent of downloadable applications, and the desire of users to customise potentially complex services to individual preferences and needs.
The present document for a Generic User Profile will capture requirements that will allow:
1. A way to express user preferences in a consistent manner.
2. Effective management, control ownership and protection of GUP data.
3. Extensibility to cater for future needs and the simple addition of new features.
