Step 3: The SMSC sends the short message to the MSC using the ‘forward short message’ operation.
Step 4: The MSC retrieves the subscriber information from the VLR. This operation may include an authentication procedure.
Step 5: The MSC transfers the short message to the Mobile Station
Step 6: The MSC returns to the SMSC the outcome of the ‘forward short message’ operation.
Step 7: If requested by the ESME, the SMSC returns a status report indicating delivery of the short message.
