Understanding An Account ECN
To implement MT, an ECP will need to use an account ECN. There are several accounts that are required for deployment of MT. The major types of account ECNs are SP-LSA, CSA, GCN, OIC, and GSEs.
The account ECN is a name that refers to the customers' Customer Identifier assigned by a provider. The identifiers are unique to each person or entity.
Every business will want a different provider's system. Therefore, the providers have been assigned identifiers, which they call identifiers for their systems.
For example, when a provider uses but, it is called an mbuf-EICCA. When a provider uses mbuf-SA for customers, they call it mbuf-SA-EICCA. It is this type of identifier that is used in MT.
The only two identifiers that can be assigned by an ECP or any third party are the provider's system and identifiers for the MLSP. The second one refers to the multiuser service provider ID. This number is assigned by the financial institution or any third party.
An example of a provider of a MT4 is IntraNet Systems. The providers of the identifiers are mandated by financial institutions to provide only compatible identifiers for their customers. The third party that provides the MT systems is the originator of MT.
It is very important that the identification is in a standardized format. The identifiers are for the purpose of making the entire life cycle easier for both the sender and the receiver.
Before the providers' identifier can be applied to an account, the identifier must be standardized so that it can be recognized by any device that wants to send messages over the network. Then the identifiers can be used by all the devices and companies that need a source.
Third-party identifiers are also standardized. This group includes the MIBX and the SCMA. The MT suppliers' identifiers are part of the third-party identifiers group.
When a MT provider has a different identifier for a set of mbuf-EICCA, then it is important that they call the mbuf-EICCA. This group has been very established. However, there are some providers who do not recognize their identifiers.
This is why it is important that these identifiers can be recognized by all the devices that can access the internet and other networks. The MT providers have been working hard to standardize their identifiers to make sure that they are widely used.
When it comes to the account ECN, the providers must know the MT providers' identifiers. This is because if not, the provider may encounter difficulties in deploying the MT.
