Introduction
This document provides the specification of the Acision Diameter Input Interface, its AVPs and messages.

1.1 Overview
Online charging for both events and sessions between a 3rd Party Application and the AFG/ACE should be performed using the Acision Diameter Input Interface which is based on the Ro reference point. The Ro reference point as described in the 3GPP TS 32.299 [1] is used with additional AVPs as defined in the present document.

The format of Diameter messages defined in this document is based directly on the 3GPP TS 32.299 [1] document. The following symbols are used in the message format definitions: <AVP> indicates a mandatory AVP with a fixed position in the message. {AVP} indicates a mandatory AVP in the message. [AVP] indicates an optional AVP in the message. *AVP indicates that multiple occurrences of an AVP are possible.

2.3 Credit Control Messages


This section describes credit control messages for Data, Content, SMS and MMS online charging. Three cases for control of user credit are distinguished by the 3GPP TS 32.299 [1] specification: IEC (Immediate Event Charging), ECUR (Event Charging with Unit Reservation), SCUR (Session Charging with Unit Reservation). For now only IEC and SCUR are supported for the following services: SMS, MMS and Content services IEC; Data service SCUR. Both IEC and SCUR call flow scenarios are described in more detail in the Figure 6.3.3 and Figure 6.3.5 of the 3GPP TS 32.299 [1] document. 2.3.1 Data Request The CCR message, indicated by the Command-Code field set to 272 is sent by the Client to the AFG/ACE in order to request credits for a data service.

The CCR message format is based on the 3GPP TS 32.299 [1] Ro reference point request message. <Credit-Control-Request> ::= < Diameter Header: 272, REQ, PXY > < { { { { { { { [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ *[ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ [ *[ *[ *[ Session-Id > Origin-Host } Origin-Realm } Destination-Realm } Auth-Application-Id } Service-Context-Id } CC-Request-Type } CC-Request-Number } Destination-Host ] User-Name ] Origin-State-Id ] Event-Timestamp ] Service-Identifier ] Requested-Service-Unit ] Requested-Action ] Termination-Cause ] Used-Service-Unit ] 3GPP-MS-TimeZone ] Charged-Address ] Charged-IMSI ] Originator-Address ] QoS ] Traffic-Type ] APN ] Target-Address ] GGSN-Address ] SGSN-Address ] SGSN-MCC-MNC ] Location-Area-Code ] Cell-Id ] Rating-Group ] Operator-Id ] Zone-Name ] Zone-Status ] CC-Flags ] CC-Correlation-Id ] Proxy-Info ] Route-Record ] AVP ]

This field identifies uniquely a session.

OctetString 263 CC-Request-Number

This must remain same for INITIAL, UPDATE and TERMINATE requests within a session. This field uniquely identifies each request within a session.

Unsigned32 415

As Session-Id AVPs are globally unique, the combination of Session-Id and CCRequest-Number AVPs is also globally unique and can be used in matching messages with confirmations.

The value for this field must be set to 1 for INITIAL_REQUEST and incremented sequentially for each UPDATE_REQUEST within the session. TERMINATE_REQUEST will have the last number in the sequence. Service-Identifier Service Identifier. Set to DATA. See A.1

Unsigned32 439 CC-Request-Type Contains the reason for sending the credit-control request message.

Enumerated 416 Requested-Action

Possible values are INITIAL_REQUEST, UPDATE_REQUEST, TERMINATE_REQUEST or EVENT_REQUEST. See A.2 Contains the requested action when the CC-Request-Type is set to EVENT_REQUEST. See A.3

Enumerated 436 CC-Flags Set to HOT_BILLING if the message is a HotBilling (offline) request.

Enumerated 3028 Acision

Set to FORCE if the message is a force charge request. ACE will charge the request locally if no billing system balance is available.

Concatenated Messages

There are two approaches for rating and charging of concatenated MO messages which are supported. The system can rate only the first segment of a message and ignore all the remaining segments (Figure 1) or rate all the segments separately (Figure 2). The MT concatenated messages are processed in the following way. Only the first segment is rated and sent to the charging system. The stored result of first segment is then sent to all subsequent segments (

Figure 3). The refund request is always applied to all segments. So, all money is refunded in case a single segment is not delivered.
