GSM Switching, Services and Protocols, Chapter 7, p.125-180
the gsm protocol architecture is explained in detail in chapter 7, covering protocols for transmission user data (speech, transparent data, and non‐transparent data) and for signaling. signaling protocols are explained for all interfaces and layers. in particular, the chapter deals with radio resource management (basic principles, connection setup/release, channel change, handover, activation of ciphering), mobility management (basic principles, common procedures, tmsi allocation, authentication, specific procedures, imsi attach and detach, connection management), and connection management (call control, call setup, dtmf signaling) also covered are physical layer signaling, lapdm (layer 2), message transfer part (mtp), bss application part, bts management, sccp, dtap, bssmap, tcap, and mobile application part (map). furthermore, data transmission over signaling channels (sms), signaling for supplementary services, and signaling at the user interface is explained.
