Telecommunications and Internet converged Services and Protocols for Advanced Networking (TISPAN) - Charging management

Charging in R2 covers the following issues: �Online charging �Charging of new services �Coordination with RACS, in order to provide RACS support of charging. Note:  Online Charging also comprises a correlation between online charging and AoC, as well as realtime transfer of tariff information through NNI-interfaces (SIP-SIP and SIP-ISUP). Charging of new services needs to be triggered by service-related requirements (e.g. IPTV, FMC) or architecture enhancements  (e.g. IBCF Functionality in interconnection scenarios)

1 Scope

The purpose of the present document is to specify charging applicable to NGN, but not to a PSTN/ISDN Emulation

other than for an IMS contained within that subsystem.
The scope of the present document comprises the following functionalities:
• Offline Charging.
• Online charging.
• AoC (Advice of Charge).
• Realtime transfer of tariff information through interconnection interfaces.
• New interconnection charging capabilities.
General charging requirements for TISPAN are described in TS 181 005 [7].

References are either specific (identified by date of publication and/or edition number or version number) or

non-specific.
• For a specific reference, subsequent revisions do not apply.

• Non-specific reference may be made only to a complete document or a part thereof and only in the following

cases:

- if it is accepted that it will be possible to use all future changes of the referenced document for the

purposes of the referring document;
- for informative references.

Referenced documents which are not found to be publicly available in the expected location might be found at

http://docbox.etsi.org/Reference.

For online referenced documents, information sufficient to identify and locate the source shall be provided. Preferably,

the primary source of the referenced document should be cited, in order to ensure traceability. Furthermore, the

reference should, as far as possible, remain valid for the expected life of the document. The reference shall include the

method of access to the referenced document and the full network address, with the same punctuation and use of upper

case and lower case letters.

Advice of Charge (clause 5.5.4) is included with modifications (see separate description).

The following text needs to be added:
Realtime transfer of tariff information through interconnection interfaces

In addition to offline- and online charging, the realtime transfer of tariff information through interconnection interfaces

is implemented in IMS in order to support value added services that are billed by the caller's operator, so that the caller's

operator can provide AoC (Advice of Charge) to the caller for information purposes. Additionally, this tariff

information may be reflected in an optional CDR parameter at the caller's operator side and/or at the service-hosting

side. The transferred tariff information represents direct tariff or add-on charge, either in non-monetary units (e.g.

meter-pulse) or in monetary-units (e.g. currency).
Requirements can be found in TS 181 005 [16] V2.4.1.
Examples can be found in annex ZB.
Functional enhancements of IMS functional entities

An AS providing AoC must be capable of sending AoC-information to the UE, according to TS 183 047 [13].

AoC-information consists of tariff-related information plus further AoC-related parameters.

When an AS providing AoC needs to send AoC-information to a UE of the same domain, it retrieves tariff information,

adds further AoC-related information, and maps the complete AoC-information onto SIP in order to send AoC

information to the UE.

When tariff information needs to be sent downstream, the AS retrieves tariff information and maps this information into

SIP, which is then transferred according to TS 183 058 [17].

When tariff information is received through an interconnection interface according to ES 201 296 [14], the AS

providing AoC retrieves the tariff information from SIP and transfers it into AoC information.

The MGCF maps tariff information from SIP into ISUP (APM) and vice versa. It can also filter tariff information.

An IBCF can filter tariff information exchanged between two IMS or between a TISPAN IMS and a PES.

Offline Charging modifications

For interconnection scenarios where the caller's network does not have the tariff information of a service which is

located in a different network, the price that the end user has to pay for that service must be available in an appropriate

optional CDR-parameter at the service-hosting side (called network or called service provider). The transferred tariff

information may be also stored at the originating network side.
Therefore, a new

All occurrences to Bearer level charging and flow-based charging (clause 5.3.1) are not included.

Advice of Charge (clause 5.5.4) is included with modifications (see separate description).

The following text needs to be added:
Realtime transfer of tariff information through interconnection interfaces

In addition to offline- and online charging, the realtime transfer of tariff information through interconnection interfaces

is implemented in IMS in order to support value added services that are billed by the caller's operator, so that the caller's

operator can provide AoC (Advice of Charge) to the caller for information purposes. Additionally, this tariff

information may be reflected in an optional CDR parameter at the caller's operator side and/or at the service-hosting

side. The transferred tariff information represents direct tariff or add-on charge, either in non-monetary units (e.g.

meter-pulse) or in monetary-units (e.g. currency).
Requirements can be found in TS 181 005 V2.4.1.
Examples can be found in annex ZB.
Functional enhancements of IMS functional entities

An AS providing AoC must be capable of sending AoC-information to the UE, according to TS 183 047. AoC-

information consists of tariff-related information plus further AoC-related parameters.

When an AS providing AoC needs to send AoC-information to a UE of the same domain, it retrieves tariff information,

adds further AoC-related information, and maps the complete AoC-information onto SIP in order to send AoC

information to the UE.

When tariff information needs to be sent downstream, the AS retrieves tariff information and maps this information into

SIP, which is then transferred according to TS 183 058.

When tariff information is received through an interconnection interface according to ES 201 296, the AS providing

AoC retrieves the tariff information from SIP and transfers it into AoC information.

The MGCF maps tariff information from SIP into ISUP (APM) and vice versa. It can also filter tariff information.

An IBCF can filter tariff information exchanged between two IMS or between a TISPAN IMS and a PES.

Offline Charging modifications

For interconnection scenarios where the caller's network does not have the tariff information of a service which is

located in a different network, the price that the end user has to pay for that service must be available in an appropriate

optional CDR-parameter at the service-hosting side (called network or called service provider). The transferred tariff

information may be also stored at the originating network side.
Therefore, a new parameter which reflects the tariff (

1 Scope

The purpose of the present document is to specify charging applicable to NGN, but not to a PSTN/ISDN Emulation

other than for an IMS contained within that subsystem.
The scope of the present document comprises the following functionalities:
• Offline Charging.
• Online charging.
• AoC (Advice of Charge).
• Realtime transfer of tariff information through interconnection interfaces.
• New interconnection charging capabilities.
General charging requirements for TISPAN are described in TS 181 005 [7].
