Description

In the CC Setup / CC Call Confirmed messages, there is a Supported Codec List IE besides the Bearer Capabilities.
So far we only decode and handle the information from the Bearer Capabilities,
but instead or in addition we may want to also look at this Supported Codec List IE.

History

#1 Updated by neels about 1 month ago

An example dissection of a CC Setup:

Note that further above, there is a Bearer Capabilities listing of codecs, while further below there also is the Supported Codec List, with separate information for UMTS and GSM.

3GPP TS 24.008 says that "This information element shall be included for speech calls, if the mobile station supports UMTS radio access." (I interpret this so that UMTS doesn't imply 3G, but means R99 and is also used on 2G).
The Supported Codecs are only present in the MO CC Setup (not in MT, where the CN sends the CC Setup), but is also contained in the CC Call Confirmed message (which in MT the MS sends to the CN).

24.008 5.2.1 Mobile originating call establishment:
For speech calls the mobile station shall indicate all codecs that it supports for UTRAN in the Supported Codec List
information element. Codecs for GERAN shall be indicated in the Bearer Capability information element, if this
information element is included. Additionally, if the mobile station supports codecs for GERAN and UTRAN, it shall
indicate the codecs for GERAN also in the Supported Codec List information element.

24.008 5.2.2.3.2 Receipt of CALL CONFIRMED and ALERTING by the network:
For speech calls, if the CALL CONFIRMED message contains a Supported Codec List information element, the
network shall use this list to select the codec for UTRAN. If no Supported Codec List information element is received,
then for UTRAN the network shall select the default UMTS speech codec according to subclause 5.2.1.11.
Codecs for GERAN shall be selected from the codecs indicated in the Supported Codec List information element or in
the Bearer Capability information element. If neither a Supported Codec List information element nor a Bearer
Capability information element is received, then for GERAN the network shall select GSM full rate speech version 1.
