MSISDN (Mobile Subscriber Integrated Services Digital Network number) is the term used to describe a mobile number in an international format. However, the MSISDN is not a direct mapping to a mobile handset, or even to the SIM card. An MSISDN allows an SMSC to determine the country and mobile operator a subscriber number belongs to; and from there the SMSC can query the mobile operator’s HLR (Home Location Register) for information used to route the SMS to the handset.
