Subsystem number -> Subsystem Number

Per WP:CAPS and WP:TITLE: this is a proper noun referring to the single and specific information element of the international Signalling Connection Control Part standard. It does not refer to general numbers for subsystems. — Dgtsyb (talk) 22:58, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

  • Oppose. As the article itself shows, this is not a proper name. There is not one single number called "Subsystem Number", but several. The very first sentence of the article:

Signalling Connection Control Part (SCCP) subsystem numbers are used to identify applications within network entities which use SCCP signalling.

This is supported by material from the first of the two external sources that are cited:

The following globally standardised subsystem numbers have been allocated for use by GSM: ...

Neither WP:CAPS nor WP:TITLE gives support to this RM.

  • Oppose Not a proper name, subsystem number is just a concept. Stick with the MoS - no need for an exception here. Jojalozzo 02:08, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose: "SCPP", I suppose, can remain upcased, since it's a protocol. But certainly not "subsystem number". Why would you upcase that? Tony (talk) 04:32, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose. There is no unique subsystem number that may be referred to as the Subsystem Number. Nageh (talk) 23:32, 21 September 2011 (UTC)
  • I can't support this move. "SCCP subsystem number" seems to be the same as "IP address". --Enric Naval (talk) 21:53, 26 September 2011 (UTC)
