The following list of mobile service enablers was ratified by the OMA Board of Directors in June 2012.

Service Access Interface

OMA Next Generation Services Interface V 1.0 AER

OMA Next Generation Service Interfaces (NGSI) focuses on new requirements and API extensions for server-to-server based third party services. Evolving from the integration of the Parlay work into OMA, NGSI will expand next generation networking and services for seamless integration of fixed and mobile networks. By creating a uniform and accepted standard of open APIs, third parties will use application interfaces to access network capabilities as well as further enhance existing capabilities. The scope of NGSI includes the standardization of new functional APIs for: Data Configuration and Management, Call Control and Configuration, Multimedia List Handling extensions, Context Management, Identity Control and Registration and Discovery functions.


OMA Next Generation Service Interfaces-SOAP V1.0 AER

OMA SOAP Bindings for NGSI (OMA NGSI_S) aims to specify a first protocol binding choice for selected abstract NGSI interfaces. SOAP binding will comprehend with the style/design as given for the existing PSA v1.0. OMA NGSI SOAP comprehend Parlay-X with extensions for call control, conferencing and multimedia list handling.


Service Customization

OMA Service User Profile Management V1.0 AER

OMA Service User Profile Management (SUPM) enabler provides a standardized interface to access and manage the data related to Service User Profile, that allow applications and/or enablers to create, read, update and delete specific data in order to support contextualization and personalization of the user’s services.


OMA Mobile Location Service V1.3 CER

OMA Mobile Location Service V1.3 (MLS V1.3) consists of a set of location specifications complying with 3GPP Release 7 LCS Specification. OMA MLP describes the protocol between an MLS client and the LS. In the 3GPP context, MLP was chosen to be an instantiation of the stage 3 specification for the Le reference point.


OMA Secure User Plane Location V2.1 CER

OMA SUPL employs user plane data bearers for transferring location assistance information such as GPS assistance data, and for carrying positioning technology-related protocols between mobile terminal and the network. This version adds new functionality, and based on experience with SUPL 1.0, enhances the existing functionality while maintaining the SUPL 1.0 requirements. The new functionality includes triggered services (e.g., periodic and change of area), and network environments (e.g., I-WLAN). In addition, SUPL 2.0 addresses emergency services.
