ABSTRACT: Issue 6 of GR-2838, Generic Requirements for GetData, replaces Issue 5.
This document identifies generic requirements for Line Information Database (LIDB), LIDB Administrative System (LIDB AS), and Query
Originator (QO) functionality needed to support processing of GetData. GetData provides flexible query and data element definition
capabilities that allow LIDB owners to rapidly develop the query and data element definition capabilities needed to support new
The GetData query is a service-independent LIDB query (and associated responses) that can be used to request specific data elements
from a record in LIDB. To support the GetData query, QOs access the LIDB associated with a service key to obtain data element
information for the line record identified by the service key. Also included as part of GetData is a mechanism that allows LIDB owners
to define customized LIDB data elements over the LIDB AS-LIDB Interface. Information contained in these customer LIDB elements can then
be retrieved by the GetData query.
Issue 6 incorporates the following:
- Support descriptions, format, and encoding rules for two (2) newly defined standard elements, which are retrievable from LIDB
The two (2) new line elements are:
- The Extended Name (EN) String which can store up to 60 characters of name information associated with a telephone number

The Extended Name String and Extended Name Presentation Indicator may be retrieved for the CLASS Calling Name Delivery feature, where
longer names could be supported in signaling and CPE, as well as for various GetData and IP-based applications.
