1 General

1.1 Introduction
This document gives a general overview of how charging of calls originating from an ISDN-E
access integrated in a mobile exchange can be handled. The document also describes how ISDN-
E supplementary services can be charged in mobile exchanges.

This document does not cover output of call data records. This is described in reference [1.

This document does not replace Function Specifications or any other operation and maintenance
documents.

The command examples in this document are simplified and might exclude necessary non
charging related parameters.

1.2 Revision Information


This document is based on 7/1553-APX 101 01/3 Rev. A. The reason for this revision is addition
of SAE 1097 and 1098 which are originated from wireline, and it has been lifted for Wireless
systems. Besides, the Internal AXE cause code value range described was corrected from 4096
to 255.

1.3 Network
An ISDN-E Access can be integrated in the same physical exchange as MSC/VLR, GMSC, SSF,
SMS-GMSC, SMS-IWMSC and HLR functionality.

1.4 Concepts

1.5 Introduction to ISDN-E Charging


ISDN-E Charging can be performed for:

-
Calls originating from an ISDN-E access
-
Calls diverted by an ISDN-E subscriber
-
Usage of non call related supplementary services
-
Usage of call related supplementary services

ISDN-E charging is performed by collecting required data into call data records. Using the data in
these records, a billing system outside the AXE can process the required data in order to produce
a bill for a subscriber.

1.5.1 Call Data Records

The following types of call data records can be output for ISDN-E charging:

a
A call data record used to charge calls originating from an ISDN-E access.
b
A call data record used to charge calls diverted by an ISDN-E subscriber.
c
A call data record used to charge for the usage of non call related ISDN-E supplementary
services.

1.5.2 Event Module

The following event module can be output as part of a call data record for ISDN-E charging:

a
A call data module to charge for supplementary service invocation or activation related to a
call.

1.5.3 Call Types

A call originating from an ISDN-E subscriber connected to a mobile exchange can be routed
towards the following destinations:

-
ISDN/PSTN/PLMN outside the own exchange
-
ISDN in the own exchange
-
GMSC in the own exchange
-
SSF in the own exchange

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SER... Page 7 of 56

ISDN-E call data records can also be linked to other call data records output in the own exchange
by using a unique Network Call Reference.

In case of calls through SSF composite call data records may be output.

2 ISDN-E Charging Functionalities

2.1 General
The following chapters describe the mechanisms in the AXE to perform charging of ISDN-E calls
and supplementary services. The chapters are divided into the following parts:

-
Subscriber properties influencing charging
-
Basic call charging
-
Call attempt charging
-
Counting of transferred information elements
-
Service charging
-
Advice of charge
-
IN charging
-
Initiation of call data output

Each part contains where relevant a general description of the functionality, a list of important
Operational Documents and examples how exchange data can be specified. The exchange data
examples found in this document are for definition of new data. No examples to change or
remove data are shown. Similarly there are no examples for the usage of print commands.

2.2 Subscriber Properties Influencing Charging of ISDN-E Calls and


Supplementary Services

2.2.1 Description

Subscriber properties influencing charging can be assigned to ISDN-E subscriptions. The


properties listed below can be assigned to the subscriber number types AIN, GN and GIN. The
only exception is CHVALNM which can only be assigned to AIN and GIN subscriptions.

-
Called Subscriber Charging Type (CHT)
-
Charging of validated number (CHVALNM)
-
Origin for Charging (CO)
-
Calling Party Category (CPC)
-
Origin for B-number analysis (OBA)

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SER... Page 8 of 56

-
Tariff Group (TGR)

The properties CHT, CHVALNM, CO, CPC, OBA and TGR are used to influence charging of both
normal and forwarded calls. The properties CHVALNM, CO, CPC and TGR are used to influence
charging of supplementary services.

2.2.1.1 Called Subscriber Charging Type (CHT)

The CHT category assigned to the called subscriber of a call can be used to influence the
charging of the calling subscriber. The CHT can be used as such as input to the ISDN-E basic call
charging analysis in case of local ISDN-E->ISDN-E calls. In case of incoming calls from another
exchange terminating on an ISDN-E subscriber in the own exchange, the CHT is used to set the
charge indicator sent backwards on the ISUP/TUP.

2.2.1.2 Charging of validated number (CHVALNM)

The CHVALNM property is used to specify if an AIN/GIN should be considered the chargeable
subscription, or if the DCN is to be charged for a call/service. An AIN/GIN can only be the
charged subscription if the AIN/GIN was received from the user and successfully validated.

The properties of the charged subscription are used as input to the ISDN-E basic call and service
charging analysis. The charged subscription is also output as the calling party number in call
data records.

2.2.1.3 Origin for Charging (CO)

The CO property can be used to divide subscriptions into classes/categories for which special
charging should be done. The CO property is used as a branching parameter in the ISDN-E basic
call and service charging analysis. The CO value 32 will always lead to a call/service which is free
of charge, i.e. no call data records are possible.

2.2.1.4 Calling Party Category (CPC)

The CPC property specifies the information sent in the forward direction indicating the category
of the calling party. The CPC can influence charging as a branching parameter in the ISDN-E
basic call and service charging analysis. The Type of Calling Subscriber (TCL) available in call
data records is also based on the CPC. An exchange parameter based table in block IUCACH is
used to map the CPC to Type of Calling Subscriber.

2.2.1.5 Origin for B-number analysis (OBA)

The OBA property specifies the analysis tree, where the B-number analysis is to be started. The
OBA can affect charging through the B-number analysis.

2.2.1.6 Tariff Group (TGR)

The TGR property can be used to divide subscriptions into classes/categories for which special
charging should be done. The TGR property is used as a branching parameter in the ISDN-E
basic call and service charging analysis. The prices per charge unit generated for AoC purposes
are specified by TGR.

2.2.2 Commands for Subscriber Property Handling

Default values specified with exchange parameters are used when a subscription is created.
These default values can later be changed with command IUSCC.

2.2.3 Example

The subscriber number 1234567 is given the value 10 to the


property CO.

IUSCC:SNB=1234567,PROP=CO-10;

2.3 Basic Call Charging


Basic Call Charging is performed in the AXE by collecting call related data into call data records.

The basic call charging analysis dedicated to ISDN-E calls decides whether a TT call data record
should be produced for a call. It also provides some charging related data to be output in call
data records.

Basic call charging analysis also determines the tariff class to be used for a call. A tariff class is
needed in order to be able to generate charge units for AoC purposes.

The input parameters for the ISDN-E basic call charging analysis are obtained from the basic
service analysis, the B-number analysis and calling/called party subscription data.

2.3.1 Basic Service Analysis

2.3.1.1 Description

The basic service analysis is used to determine if the requested bearer and/or tele service is
supported by the exchange and allowed for the calling/called party. The analysis is based on the
elements Bearer Capability and High Layer Compatibility received in the DSS1 Setup message
from the user. In case of diverted calls, where Bearer Capability and High Layer Compatibility
elements are not always available, the Basic Service Analysis may also be based on the
Transmission Medium Requirement.

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 10 of 56

The result of the basic service analysis that affects charging is the Basic Service Charging Code
(BSCC). This result reflects the requested bearer/tele service.

2.3.1.3 Example 1 (Telephony Calls)

Basic Service Characteristics are defined for a telephony


call. The BSCC value describing the requested basic service
is 3, ISUP is not required, the transmission medium
requirement is speech, transmission breaks are allowed,
tone sending is allowed and a date and time stamp is not
required. For a subscriber to be allowed to use this basic
service, the basic service type TPHY must be assigned to
the subscription with command IUSCC.

IXBCI:BSCH=1,BSTY=TPHY,BSCC=3,ISPI=1,TMR=0,TBP=NO,TONE=YES,
DTSTAMP=NO;

Basic Service Analysis data for analyzing the received


Bearer Capability and High Layer Compatibility is defined.
In case the required tele service capability is telephony,
transfer capability is speech and transfer mode is circuit
mode, the basic service characteristics for telephony calls
will be used.

IXBAI:TSERV=1,TCAP=0,TMODE=0,BSCH=1;

2.3.1.4 Example 2 (Data Transmission)

Basic Service Characteristics are defined for a tele-Tex


call. The BSCC value describing the requested basic service

USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 11 of 56

is 4, ISUP is preferred, the transmission medium requirement


is 64 kbit/s unrestricted, transmission breaks are not
allowed, tone sending is not allowed and a date and time
stamp is not required. For a subscriber to be allowed to use
this basic service, the basic service type TELETEX must be
assigned to the subscription with command IUSCC.

IXBCI:BSCH=2,BSTY=TELETEX,BSCC=4,ISPI=0,TMR=0,TBP=YES,
TONE=NO,DTSTAMP=NO;

Basic Service Analysis data for analyzing the received


Bearer Capability and High Layer Compatibility is defined.
In case the required tele service capability is tele-Tex,
transfer capability is unrestricted digital information
and transfer mode is circuit mode, the basic service
characteristics for tele-Tex calls will be used.

IXBAI:TSERV=49,TCAP=8,TMODE=0,BSCH=2;

2.3.2 B-Number Analysis

2.3.2.1 Description

The B-number analysis is used to analyze the called number digits. The B-number analysis result
that affects charging is the Charging Case. The Charging Case reflects the destination of the call.

The B-number analysis consists of a preanalysis and the actual B-number analysis. In the
preanalysis the B-number origin, B-number type and Numbering plan are analyzed. The result is
a new B-number origin for the actual B-number analysis. The actual B-number analysis analyzes
the B-number origin and called party number and results in information how the call should be
routed, charged, etc.

In case several Charging Cases are specified for the analyzed B-number, the last one found is
used as input to the ISDN-E basic call charging analysis.

2.3.2.3 Example

The following example shows a simple example of B-number analysis data. The CC which the B-
number analysis data refers to must be specified and active in the ISDN-E Basic Call Charging
Analysis data.

For numbers with B-number origin 0, numbering plan 1


(ISDN/PSTN E.163/E.164), B-number type 1 (International
number), the analysis is continued with B-number analysis
origin 10.

PNBSI:BO=0,NAPI=1,BNT=1,OBA=10;

For numbers with B-number origin 10 within the number


series 1234, Charging Case 2 and Routing Case 3 are used.

ANBSI:B=10-1234,CC=2,RC=3,L=5-15;

The B-number analysis data is specified in a non operating area which must be activated before
it will be used during traffic.

2.3.3 ISDN-E Basic Call Charging Analysis

2.3.3.1 Description

The ISDN-E Basic Call Charging Analysis is performed when the call has reached the called party.
In case of calls to another exchange using ISUP/TUP signaling this means that ISDN-E basic call
charging analysis is done when ACM/CON is received. In case of local calls within the own
exchange, the ISDN-E basic call charging analysis is done when alerting starts.

The ISDN-E Basic Call Charging Analysis consists of two parts, i.e the branching condition
analysis and the charging program analysis.

Note: The charging program must be set locally in IUSAM for ISDN-E calls. Thus the application
parameter CHARGING_ANALYSIS_LOCATION must be set to "local charging analysis" in IUCCON.

The branching condition analysis analyzes the following input values:

-
Charging Case
-
Basic Service Charging Code
-
Call Indicator

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 13 of 56

-
Charging Origin
-
Tariff Group
-
Calling Party Category
-
Called subscriber Charging Category

The call indicator indicates what type of call is being setup, i.e. a normal call or a diverted call.
The other input parameters have been described in previous chapters.

The branching condition data is structured in branching condition trees. There is a branching
condition tree for every charging case.

The result of the Branching Condition Analysis is a reference to a charging program. The
charging program reference is used as input to the charging program analysis.

The charging program analysis analyzes the charging program pointed out by the branching
condition analysis. The results of the charging program analysis are:

-
The location of the charging determination point and the charging point.
-
The charged party (A-party or no-party)
-
Whether a Toll Ticketing call data record should be produced (TT=FEP-64).
-
Tariff Class.
-
Outgoing Trunk Information

If the charging determination point is not in the own exchange, a tariff message must have been
received at the time when the charging analysis is performed. If this is not the case, the call will
be disconnected or free of charge, depending on the exchange parameter CHFAULTACTION in
block IUCCON. If a charging message is received, a new ISDN-E basic call charging analysis is
initiated. The used CC is in this case obtained from the tariff message.

The ISDN-E Basic Call Charging Analysis data is specified in a not operating area. The not
operating area must be activated in order to be used during traffic.

is used. The third branch specifies that in case of
CI=4 (forwarded call) and CHT=0 (charged call), Charging
Program number 4 is used. The fourth branch specifies
that in case of CI=4 (forwarded call) and CHT=1 (call free
of charge), Charging Program number 1 is used.

2.4 Call Attempt Charging


The function provides the operator with a mechanism to register and charge Call Attempts. Call
Attempt Analysis can be performed when a call is disconnected before reaching active phase. If
the Call Attempt is chargeable Call Attempt Charging can be performed and Call Attempt data
can be output in the CDR.

Depending on a parameter setting it is also possible to charge Call Attempts for calls reaching
active phase.

Call Attempt Analysis is based on analysis and mapping tables. These tables are defined by
application parameters and commands. If the Call Attempt is chargeable, a selected flexible
counter can be stepped.

2.4.1 Call Attempt Analysis

2.4.1.1 Description

Upon call disconnection the Call Attempt data is analysed to determine if the Call Attempt is
chargeable. Before Call Attempt Analysis is initiated, it is checked whether the capabilities
regarding the called subscriber and signaling type indicate that Call Attempt Analysis should be
performed.

Type of Called Subscriber


Type of called subscriber can be:
- ISDN
- PSTN
- Unknown
For each type of called subscriber it can be specified whether Call Attempt Analysis should be
performed or not.

Type of Signaling
Type of signaling can be:
- ISUP all the way
- Not ISUP all the way
- Local
- Unknown
For each type of signaling it can be specified whether Call Attempt Analysis should be performed
or not.

If the above mentioned checks indicate that Call Attempt Analysis can be initiated, the analysis
will be performed with the following inputs:
- Call Attempt State
- Cause and Location for call disconnection
- Type of release

Call Attempt State


The progress of the call setup is derived from the signaling of the route of the call setup and the
Call Attempt State is set accordingly. The Call Attempt States are:

Initial Start of call setup, ie. the call request


is not sent yet.

Call Sent The call request has been sent, but no


acknowledgment has been received yet.

Call Rejected The call is rejected and is not offered to

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 18 of 56

the called subscriber, e.g. due to congestion


in the public network.

Call Offered The call is offered to the called subscriber


but no response is received yet, ie. an ACM
is received without backward information.

No Response A call has been offered but the call is


rejected or no response has been received and
a time out has occurred. In case of a PABX
supporting DDI the state is reached when a
call was sent but no ACM is received.

Alerting The call has been accepted by the called


subscriber and alerting has started.

Unknown Call The progress of the call setup can't be


determined since the information received is
insufficient.

Active The call has reached active phase.

For each state it can be specified whether Call Attempt Charging should be performed, whether
the result should depend on the type of release or if the result should depend on Cause and
Location.

The Call Attempt State output in the CDR is an external operator defined state which is mapped
from the internal state using exchange parameters.

Cause and Location


The Cause value indicates the reason for the call disconnection, e.g. 'No Circuit/Channel
Available' or 'No Route to Destination'. The cause value used in the Call Attempt Analysis is an
external (operator defined) value which is mapped from an internal cause code (Cause Code
Mapping Table):

/---------\
1 | |
+---------+
2 | |
+---------+
-------->| |----------->
Internal | | External
AXE Cause| | User Defined
Code | | Cause Code
| |
+---------+
255 | |
\---------/

FIGURE 2: Cause Code mapping table

The Cause Code mapping table is specified with commands. For call attempt charging only a
subset of the mapping between information case code (i.e. 1..255 -> internal cause codes) and
external cause is applicable. The values to be used in the mapping table are described in AI
'Information Cause Code Analysis'.

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 19 of 56

The Location value indicates in which parts of the network the release occurred, e.g. 'Public
Network Serving the Local User' or 'Public Network Serving the Remote User'. Location values
are described in AI 'Route Analysis'.

Two tables are provided to perform analysis of the call attempt criteria depending on the
external cause and the location for the call clearing.

The first table (External Cause/Location Release Analysis Table) determines if a Release Analysis
shall be performed or a second table shall be consulted. The second table (External
Cause/Location Call Attempt Criteria) specifies if charging is to be performed for the given
combination of cause and location values.

Type of Release
Type of release can be:
- A-party
- B-party
- Network (other)
For each type of release it can be specified (in Release Analysis Table) whether Call Attempt
Charging should be performed or whether the result should depend on cause and location.

2.4.1.3 Example

The signaling capabilities must be 'ISUP all the way' and the type of the called subscriber must
be 'ISDN' before Call Attempt Analysis is initiated. If we have a local call, the signaling
capabilities are also on the same level as ISUP:

SIGNALLINGTYPEISUP = 1 (Perform Call Attempt Analysis)

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 20 of 56

SIGNALLINGTYPELOCAL = 1 ( " )

CALLEDSUBSCRIBERISDN = 1 ( " )

For all calls ending up in state 'Call Offered' (Internal AXE Call State 3), the External
Cause/Location Release Analysis Table should be checked. If the Call Attempt state is
'Alerting' (Internal AXE Call State 5) the Call Attempt is always chargeable:

RESULTSTATEANALYSIS3 = 3 (Call Offered -> External Cause/


Location Release
Analysis
required)

RESULTSTATEANALYSIS5 = 1 (Alerting -> Call Attempt


chargeable)

If the call is disconnected with Information Cause Code 6 (Call Rejected), it should be checked
from where the disconnection was initiated (Release Analysis Table). If the call is disconnected
with Information Cause Code 61 (No answer from User), Call Attempt Charging should always be
performed.

ICC value 6 should be mapped to external cause 21 and ICC value 61 to external cause 19.
Value 0 will be used as Origin for Analysis:

IXICI:ORIG=0,ICC=6,CAUSE=21;

IXICI:ORIG=0,ICC=61,CAUSE=19;

For cause code 21, the following locations will indicate that Release Analysis Table should be
checked:

0 =
User
1 =
Local network (Private network serving the local user)
2 =
Local network (Public network serving the local user)
3 =
Transit network
4 =
Remote local network (Public network serving the
remote user)
5 = Remote private network (Private network serving the
remote user)

All other location values will indicate that no Call Attempt Charging should be performed. This
must, however, be indicated in the External Cause/Location Call Attempt Criteria Table.

This gives us the following bit string for cause code 21:

Location: 15 14 13 12 11 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2 1 0
Bit: 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 1 1 1

CAUSELOCATIONRAR021 = H'003F

For locations 6 - 15 it is indicated in the 2nd matrix that no Call Attempt Charging should be
performed. Locations 0 - 5 are also set to 0, meaning that if the release is caused by the
network no Call Attempt Charging will be performed. In case the release is caused by the A or B
party, the analysis ends up in the Release Analysis Table.

CAUSELOCATIONCAC021 = H'0000 (No Call Attempt Charging)

For cause code 19 Call Attempt Charging will always be performed:

Criteria Table)

CAUSELOCATIONCAC019 = H'FFFF (For all locations, perform


Call Attempt Charging).

If the call is disconnected by the A or B subscriber, the Call Attempt is chargeable. If the call is
disconnected by the network, the result will depend on Cause and Location:

APARTYRELEASE = 1 (Call Attempt chargeable)

BPARTYRELEASE = 1 ( " )

2.5 Counting of Transfered Information Elements


Information elements exchanged between two subscribers with ISDN capabilities are transfered
in call control messages. These call control messages can consist of various information elements
which can be counted for charging purposes.

The information transfered in the User to User (UUI) element in call control messages is carried
transparently to the remote user. These elements are used in relation with the supplementary
service User-To-User Service Type 1.

Information sent in other elements is often referred to as End-To-End elements.

It is also possible to use the Call Attempt function to decide if transfered information elements
should be counted, e.g. for calls disconnected before reaching active phase. The elements can be
counted if the Call Attempt is chargeable and the call and subscriber capabilities indicate:
- the type of the called subscriber is ISDN
- ISUP signaling is supported all the way

If the capabilities of the called subscriber are unknown at call disconnection, counting of
elements is still performed if the Call Attempt is chargeable.

2.5.1 Counting of Information Elements on flexible counters

2.5.1.1 Description

The transfered information elements are counted on selected flexible counters during the call.
The selection is done with exchange parameters. This mapping between information elements
and flexible counters is called Layer 1 mapping.

At call termination/partial output the flexible counters are output in a detailed call data record if
required.

2.5.1.2 Information Elements that can be Counted/Charged

The following Information elements can be independently counted and charged in the forward
and backward direction:

-
Calling Party Sub address.
-

The following UUI elements consists of messages transfered transparently between the
subscribers terminal. These messages consist of information elements that can be counted.

-
User to User service type 1, forward direction.
-
User to User service type 1, backward direction.

There is also a parameter that indicates if a flexible counter should be stepped in case a call
attempt is chargeable.

2.5.1.3 Individual or collective counting of information elements

It is possible to select how the information elements are to be counted. Two possible options
exist (set with exchange parameters):

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 25 of 56

-
Transfered information elements can be counted collectively.
The selected flexible counter is incremented by one when one or more information
elements are transferred. The flexible counter chosen for this purpose is selected with an
exchange parameter (ALLACCESSDATA).
-
Transfered information elements can be counted individually.
The selected flexible counter is incremented by one for the transfer of each information
element that is to be counted.

Note:
When counting information sent in UUI elements, the selected flexible counter is stepped once
for each message unit provided that it is not an Empty Message. The minimum size of an not
Empty Message is defined by exchange parameter CHARGING_LENGTH in IUUUS.

2.5.2 Example

The figure below is an example of a Layer 1 mapping. Under each information element the
setting of the corresponding exchange parameter is indicated.

The mapping below means that User-to-User 1 elements (both directions) will be counted on
flexible counter 2, Calling Party Sub address will be counted on flexible counter 6 and Called
Party Sub address will be counted on flexible counter 7.

2.6 Service Charging


The usage of Supplementary Services can be recorded in call data records or event modules
based on the result of the ISDN-E service charging analysis.

2.6.1 ISDN-E Service Charging Analysis

2.6.1.1 Description

The ISDN-E Service Charging Analysis is used to decide whether ISDN-E supplementary services
should be recorded in the form of TT outputs.

The Service Charging Analysis uses some input parameters which are specific for supplementary
service charging:

-
Supplementary Service Indicator (SSI)
SSI indicates which supplementary service has been used, e.g. Closed User Group.
-
Supplementary Service Procedure (SSP)
SSP indicates the action that has been performed for the supplementary service, e.g.
activation.
-
Result of Supplementary Service Procedure (RSSP)
RSSP indicates the result of the action performed for the service, e.g. double ordered
procedure.

The possible values for these parameters are described in Application Information 'Traffic Activity
Code, ISDN-E Subscribers'.

The ISDN-E Service Charging Analysis consists of two parts, i.e the branching condition analysis
and the charging program analysis. The branching condition analysis analyses the following input
values:

-
Supplementary Service Indicator
-
Supplementary Service Procedure
-
Result of Supplementary Service Procedure
-
Charging Origin
-
Tariff Group
-
Calling Party Category
-
Basic Service Charging Code

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 28 of 56

The result of the Branching Condition Analysis is a reference to a charging program. The
charging program reference is used as input to the charging program analysis.

The charging program analysis analyzes the charging program pointed out by the branching
condition analysis. The results of the charging program analysis are:

-
Whether Toll Ticketing applies to the service (TT=FEP-64).
-
Tariff Class.
-
Charged Party

The ISDN-E Service Charging Analysis data is specified in a not operating area. The not
operating area must be activated in order to be used during traffic.

2.7 Advice of Charge

2.7.1 Description

The supplementary service Advice of Charge (AoC) enables the served user to receive charging
rate information at call set-up and to receive recorded charging information during the active
phase and at end of the call.

AoC for ISDN-E Mobile System Calls is divided into three services:

USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 30 of 56

-
AoC at call set-up time (AOC-S)
-
AoC during the call (AOC-D)
-
AoC at the end of the call (AOC-E)

2.7.2 Advice of Charge at Call Set-Up Time

The AOC-S supplementary service is a call-related service which makes it possible to send
charging information to the served user's premises at call set-up. It can be activated only during
call setup, either on all calls (in which case activation is automatic) or on a per call basis (in
which case the served user activates the service when originating the call). The service is
automatically invoked at the same time as it is activated.

When the AOC-S service is invoked the information about the charging rates that will apply to
the call will be assembled by the network and sent to the served user during the call set-up
period. The information is provided at the latest when the calling user is informed that the called
user has accepted the call. The charging information relates to the charges incurred on the
network to which the served user is attached.

If the charging rate changes during the call (for example due to a tariff switch or change in user
tariff) then AOC-S is automatically invoked again and the served user will be informed of the new
charging rates.

2.7.3 Advice of Charge During the Call

The AOC-D service is a call related supplementary service which allows the served user to
receive call related charging information both during the active phase of an ISDN call and when
the call is terminated. This means that AOC-D also automatically includes AOC-E.

The service can be either activated automatically at the start of the call, requested during call
setup or requested during the call.

Charging information will then be sent to the served user's terminal equipment at periodic
intervals until and also at the end of the call. The supplied information will be the cumulative
charge incurred from the start of the call until the moment when the charging information is sent
to the served user.

2.7.4 Advice of Charge at the End of the Call

The AOC-E service is a call related supplementary service which allows the served user to
receive call related charging information at the end of an ISDN call.

The service can be either activated automatically at the start of the call, requested during call
setup, or requested during the call.

Charging information will then be sent to the served users terminal equipment at termination of
the call. This information relates to the charges incurred by the served user on the network for
the call.

2.7.6 Examples

2.7.6.1 Prerequisites

In order to enable a subscriber to use the supplementary service Advice of Charge the charging
analysis data must be specified so that it is possible to determine a valid tariff class and tariff for
the call. For more information see chapter 'ISDN-E Basic Call Charging Analysis' above.

First the tariffs are specified like tariff 1 below:

CHTSI:T=1,NSP=15,TDS=10,NPP=5;
CHRAI:T=ALL;

Tariff 1 generates 15 charge units at the beginning of charging and subsequently 5 charge units
every 10 seconds. The tariff is activated immediately. For more options see ADI TRAFFIC DATA:
TARIFF DATA.

After this the day categories are specified as below:

CACAS:DAY=MON,DCAT=0;
CACAS:DAY=TUE,DCAT=0;
CACAS:DAY=WED,DCAT=0;
CACAS:DAY=THU,DCAT=0;
CACAS:DAY=FRI,DCAT=0;
CACAS:DAY=SAT,DCAT=3;
CACAS:DAY=SUN,DCAT=6;

Midweek days are given day category 0, Saturdays day category 1 and Sundays day category 3.

Switching classes also have to be defined:

CHSZI:SWC=1;
CHSPI:SWC=1
CHSSI:DCAT=0, TIME=0700&1200&2000&2200;
CHSSI:DCAT=3, TIME=1200&2200&0000;
CHSSI:DCAT=6;
CHSPE;

Switching class 1 above is given four switching times for day category 1 and three switching
times for day category 3. For day category 6 tariff 1 is applicable all day since no switching time
is given. For more options about specifying of switching classes see ADI TRAFFIC DATA:
SWITCHING CLASSES.

The tariff classes are specified like tariff class below:

CHCPI:TC=1, SWC=1;
CHCSI:DCAT=0, T=5&2&3&4;
CHCSI:DCAT=3, T=1&3&6;
CHCSI:DCAT=6 T=1;
CHCPE;
CHCAI:TC=1;

The tariff class 1 above is given 3 day categories and 6 tariffs including tariff 1 specified aerlier.
The tariff class is connected to switching class 1 also specified earlier. For more detailed
information see ADI TRAFFIC DATA: TARIFF CLASSES.

This finally gives the following situation:

/-------------------------------------\

USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 33 of 56

| DCAT | Switching times and tariffs |


/----------------------------------------------------+
| Time | | 0700 1200 2000 2200 |
+--------------- 0 ------------------------------+
| Valid tariff | | 5 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 |
+----------------------------+-----+-----+-----+-----+
| Time | 0000 1200 2200 2400
+--------------- 3 ------------------------------+

+----------------------------------+-----------+-----+
| Time | 0000 2400
+--------------- 6 ------------------------------+
| Valid tariff | | 1 |
\--------------+-------+-----------------------------/

After this, the calling subscriber is provided a tariff group:

IUSCC:SNB=1234567, PROP=TGR-63;

In this example the subscriber with number 1234567 is connected to tariff group 63.

2.7.6.2 Definition of AoC data for a Subscriber

The charging analysis described above finally results in a applicable tariff which in the end
generates charge units for the AoC functionality. Now a price for each charge unit and for
stepping of flexible counters is to be defined:

ICPSC:TGR=63, PRICEBC=20, PRICE1=10, PRICE8=15;

In this example the prices for tariff group 63 is defined. The price for one charge unit is 20. The
price for stepping of flexible counter 1 is 10 and for counter 8 it is 15.

Changing the prices for a tariff group does not affect ongoing calls.

NOTE: Output of User-To-User 1 supplementary service information and End-To-End information


on flexible counters and inclusion of the flexible counters into charging information for AoC is
defined by exchange parameters. The flexible counters are included into charging information by
default by IUAOCD parameter INCLUDE_FLEXIBLE_COUNTER1..8. However, the User-To-User 1
information is not put on the flexible counters by default so if required the IUCITM parameter
UUS1SERVICEFW is to be set.

2.7.6.3 Provisioning of Supplementary Service AoC for a Subscriber

The AoC information or price for a tariff group is now defined. A subscriber is also connected to
the new tariff group (above). However, no AoC information will still be generated since the
subscriber is not provided with any AoC service yet:

IUSCC:SNB=1234567, SS=AOCD-1;

The subscriber is now provided with the supplementary service AOC-D for all calls. AOC-S and
AOC-E is handled in a similar way.

2.7.6.4 Defining of activation and presentation mode for AoC

In order to get a proper outcome an activation and presentation mode has to be set for the
subscriber:

IUSOC:SNB=1234567, SSTY=AOCD, OPT=ACTMODE-1&PREKEYP-4;

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 34 of 56

The AOC-D service is now activated automatically on all calls and the information is sent using
Keypad protocol. Furthermore, the information is presented in currency units and sent in Display
information elements. For more options see AI ISDN-E User Advice of Charge, During the Call.

For more options regarding defining of activation and presentation mode for AOC-E or AOC-S see
AI ISDN-E User, Advice of Charge, at the End of the Call or AI ISDN-E User, Advice of Charge at
Call Set-up.

2.7.6.5 Definition of AoC Data for a Call Related Supplementary Service

See note in chapter 'Definition of AoC data for a Subscriber' above.

2.7.7 Output of the AoC Data

2.7.7.1 AoC for Calls

The AOC-D and AOC-E information sent to the subscriber at call release can be output in the call
data record used to charge the originating ISDN call component or call forwarding ISDN call
component. The information is output only for informative purposes and not for charging
invocation of the Supplementary Service AoC.

For charging purposes the AoC data can be output as an Event Module "ISDN SS Invocation
Event Module" in the call data record used to charge the originating ISDN call component or call
forwarding ISDN call component. There will be one module of AoC data for each time the AoC
supplementary service is activated by the subscriber or automatically by configuration.

2.8 ISDN-E IN Calls


In case of ISDN-E originating call and triggering of IN by dialling an IN number it is possible to
output IN charging data in a composite call data record together with the ISDN Originating Call
component.

If an ISDN-E subscriber has Call Forwarding to an IN number, IN charging data can be output in
a composite call data record together with the ISDN Call Forwarding Call component.

Administration and charging of ISDN-E IN is similar to administration and charging of mobile IN.
See the 'User Guide for Charging of Mobile IN and CAMEL Calls' reference [2, for more
information related to this topic.

2.9 Initiation of Call Data Output


Data related to ISDN-E calls and supplementary services can be collected within the exchange
and output by the function Toll Ticketing.

Initiation of output of collected call data is initiated when a chargeable traffic activity is ended
(for instance, call is disconnected) or when a limit for partial output is reached.

For long duration calls, output of data for the call can be split into several registrations. The time
interval between these partial outputs can be chosen by means of exchange parameters.

The time interval between partial outputs is measured from the time when the previous output
was made:

-
the minimum time interval between partial outputs is 2 hours.

http://localhost:9032/alexserv?AC=LINK&ID=9526&FN=7_1553-APX10101_4Uen.C.ht... 5/29/2015
USER GUIDE FOR CHARGING OF ISDN-E CALLS AND SUPPLEMENTARY SE... Page 35 of 56

-
the maximum time interval between partial outputs is 10 hours.
-
the accuracy for first partial output is 0-10 minutes.

Partial output can also be triggered by thresholds specified for each flexible counters. The
thresholds are specified with exchange parameters.

It is also possible to trigger partial output when a predefined limit of call related supplementary
services is reached.

Partial output can not be triggered before the active phase.

When a call is disconnected, or at partial output, the charging data is sent to FOAM for output.
For output of the call data record, please refer to the 'User Guide for Output of Call Data'
reference [1.

3 Congestion Handling

3.1 Size Alterations


Charging data is collected during the call in logs in the block CHVIEW.

For each call module, one call individual (SAE 1097) in block IUCCON is reserved. This call
individual coordinates the charging data collection for the duration of the call. At the same time
when the call individual is seized, a view individual (SAE 446) is reserved in block CHVIEW. This
individual coordinates the storing of charging data in the logs. The view consists of logs. A log is
divided into two components, log header individual (SAE 601) and log part individual (SAE 600).
The charging data is stored in the log parts. The log header is needed to coordinate the data
structure for the log parts.

When one log part is full a new log part is reserved.

At partial output the data structure in CHVIEW is copied to a new data structure, and the copied
data structure is sent to output.

When performing charging for supplementary services, an individual (SAE 500) in block IUCSIC
is reserved. This individual coordinates and collects data related to the usage of a supplementary
service. View and log data is handled in the same way as when performing charging for a call.

FIGURE 6: Size alteration

3.2 Congestion Handling


When the connection to the output device is down the call data is first buffered in FOAM. In case
of congestion in FOAM see 'User Guide for Output of Call Data' reference [1.

When there is full congestion in FOAM call data can be buffered in CHVIEW data structure
depending on exchange parameters in FOAM. See 'User Guide for Output of Call Data' reference
[1 for more information.

When there is full congestion in FOAM the charging coordinator can take certain actions at the
setup phase of the call, taking into account that there might still be congestion in the output
when the call data for this call is to be output. This is called early congestion check. The
exchange parameter ACTPREDCONGTTFEP decides whether to continue the call without charging,
disconnect the call or continue as normal.

When there is full congestion in the CHVIEW data structure it is not possible to store charging
data for the call. Then the exchange parameter CHCONGACTION in the block IUCCON decides
whether to disconnect the call or proceed without charging. In case of full congestion in the call
individuals the alarm 'SOFTWARE FILE CONGESTION' is generated.

In case of full congestion in CHVIEW when performing charging for a supplementary service, it is
up to the supplementary service to decide whether the procedure should be performed or not.
