Recommendation For the information of IFAST members. IFAST SID Administrator’s Report We have had inquiries from both India and Thailand regarding national SID assignment. In both cases we have (so far) avoided becoming involved, as we believe that this is the responsibility of the national regulator. In September, 2003 the SID codes 15904 and 15905 were assigned to the CDMA industry for use in PRL (Preferred Roaming List) databases to indicate IMSI-based records (rather than SID or NID based). These are adjacent to a previous assignment to the CDMA industry. In October, 2003, the Kyrgyz Republic was assigned 17 codes in the range 21550-21566. In March 2004, we tentatively assigned SID codes 10784-10785 to Latvia, at the request of Telekom Baltija, with the understanding that the government regulator would contact us with a more complete request later. If possible we will extend this range at that time. We have been monitoring the privatization of US SID administration, and have written to all 6 administrators describing the role of IFAST. A new conflict between SETAR (Aruba) and Japan was reported. It appears that the Japanese CDMA carrier (KDDI) is not using this SID code. The SID records for the two Yemen republics have been merged (the republics merged in, um, 1990). Country names have been changed from the formal ITU name (e.g. “Uzbekistan (Republic of)”) to the common usage name (e.g. Uzbekistan). This simplified the consolidation of contact information into the IRM Billing Contact Database (which contains billing, roamer, regulatory and other contacts).
