OMNA Mobile Codes Registry-IDs
Network architectural components of the OMA MC Enabler involved in resolution of Indirect Codes and related addressing rules for such components are as follows:
a) Code Management Platform (CMP) and its variants where applicable (i.e., CMP-Split-Parent and CMP-Split-Child). Each CMP capable of resolving Indirect Codes is assigned with a globally unique Routing Prefix.
b) A CMP is typically associated with either a Mobile Code Registry (MCR) or Multi-lateral Arrangement (MLA). A CMP can also operate on its own without any association with other CMPs.
c) Within a community of CMPs associated with a MCR, the entity that operates the MCR shall apply for a ‘Registry-ID' from the appropriate OMNA Registry. Within a MLA (i.e., a community of CMPs without any MCR), the designated lead CMP in the MLA shall apply for a ‘Registry-ID' from the appropriate OMNA Registry.
d) If associated with either a MCR or MLA, a CMP shall obtain its Routing Prefix assignment from the holder of a Registry-ID (i.e., either the MCR entity or the designated lead CMP in the MLA).
e) If not associated with any MCR or MLA, a CMP shall obtain its Routing Prefix directly from the appropriate OMNA Registry.
Definitions and normative functional responsibilities of the above-mentioned network components of the MC Enabler, as well as the relationship between a Registry-ID and Routing Prefixes that stem from it, are specified in the OMA Mobile Codes V1.0 Enabler (Technical Specification Sections 3.2, 8.1 and 8.2). See http://www.openmobilealliance.org/Technical/release_program/MobileCodes_v1_0.aspx.
Applications of the Mobile Codes Registry-ID
An entity who is responsible for the Mobile Code Registry (MCR) role within a community of CMPs or is the lead CMP in a multi-lateral arrangement (MLA), as specified in the OMA Mobile Codes V1.0 Enabler, can apply for a Registry-ID. An applicant will receive a fixed length 3-hexadecimal-digit Registry-ID value when approved.
