QuantityItemPrice Each
     (Limit: 100)MFA Neutral Host Network Identifier (MFA NHN-ID)$ 400.00 USD
This 39-bit identifier uniquely identifies a specific network implementing the MFA's NHN architecture. If using this identifier, other managed identifiers are typically not needed for the network. See MF.202 §5.7.1 for additional information.
     (Limit: 10)Private Network Identifier Package$ 400.00 USD
This package includes 1x MFA PN-ID, 1x MMEGI, 10x eNB-IDs, 2x TACs, and 1x IBN, and includes all the managed identifiers needed to deploy an MFA Private Network with up to 10 eNBs. You may purchase multiple identifier packages, or add additional identifiers a la carte if more identifiers are needed.
     (Limit: 100)MFA Private Network Identifier (MFA PN-ID)$ 100.00 USD
This identifier uniquely identifies an MFA network that is using the MFA s PLMN-ID. It is broadcast as the CSG-ID in an LTE system, or as the NID in a 5G NR SNPN system.

Note: You must have purchased a Private Network Identifier Package before purchasing additional MFA PN-IDs.
     (Limit: 5)Mobility Management Entity Group Identifier (MMEGI)$ 200.00 USD
This identifier is used as a component of the Globally Unique Mobility Management Entity Identifier (GUMMEI) and in the Globally Unique Temporary Identifier (GUTI). The GUMMEI uniquely identifies a given Mobility Management Entity (MME), with multiple MMEs using the same MMEGI. Most networks will only need one MMEGI. If a network is large enough to need multiple MMEGIs, the operator should consider obtaining their own PLMN-ID.

Note: You must have purchased a Private Network Identifier Package before purchasing additional MMEGIs.
     (Limit: 10000)eNode-B Identifier (eNB-ID)$ 2.00 USD
This identifier is used as a component of the E-UTRAN Cell Global Identifier (ECGI, see 3GPP 23.003 19.6), which uniquely identifies a specific cell. Each eNB in the network needs a managed eNB-ID.

Note: You must have purchased a Private Network Identifier Package before purchasing additional eNB-IDs.
     (Limit: 1000)Tracking Area Code (TAC)$ 10.00 USD
This is combined with the PLMN-ID to create the Tracking Area Identifier (TAI, see 3GPP 23.0003 §19.4.2.3). The TAI is used to divide a network into multiple tracking areas - - the UEs monitor the TAI broadcast by the eNBs, and notifies the network if it has moved to a different Tracking Area. For smaller networks, only 1 or 2 TACs are typically needed. For networks covering a large physical coverage area, or consisting of multiple isolated areas of coverage, additional TACs may be desired, depending on the architecture of the system.

Note: You must have purchased a Private Network Identifier Package before purchasing additional TACs.
     (Limit: 100)IMSI Block Number (IBN)$ 200.00 USD
This 6-digit number is used to generate the International Mobile Subscriber Identity (IMSI) that is stored on the USIM. LTE uses the IMSI to uniquely identify subscribers to a network (see 3GPP 23.003 §2). The IMSI is what is stored on the USIM. The IMSI consists of the PLMN-ID of the subscriber s network (the HNI), and a Mobile Subscriber Identification Number (MSIN, see 3GPP 23.003 §2.2). When MFA's Shared PLMN-ID is used the MSIN consists of 10 digits, allowing up to 10 billion IMSIs. Rather than having the MFA manage the entire pool of MSINs for the MFA s Shared PLMN-D, the MFA has divided the MSIN into a 6-digit IMSI Block Number (IBN) and a 4-digit User Identification Number (UIN). This allows the issuing of up to 10,000 IMSIs per IBN. Management of the UINs is up to the network operator.
