Tariff Configuration on PGW


I am a little bit confused concerning the AOC implementation in PGW. Hope someone can shed some light.

There are 3 different categories: tariff, pri-tariff and Meter Pulse messages. As I understood tariff, pri-tariff are for CDR purposes only. While MPM generates the pulses on the trunk.

I want to configure AOC for a PRI. I want PGW to generate periodic pulses over the trunk and advise the far end PBX of the charge.

Shall I use pri-tariff or MPM?

Also what are the bare essential steps of the configuration. The examples in the docs are not clear for me.

Thanks for any help.

Re: Tariff Configuration on PGW

Here is what is supported:

? Support for AOC messages over ISUP trunks as per AOC99

? Support for AOC supplementary service as charge determination point for AOC-S, AOC-D, and AOC-E over PRI links as per ETSI 300 182

What doc were you looking at - here is the one for this feature:

Let me know if the above doc does not answer your questions.

Re: Tariff Configuration on PGW


I had read that document several times before posting the message. But this is proving a frustrating task.

VSPT is no good for AOC ocnifguration (it complains about any empty field).

I am testing a basic configuration with

AOCDefaultTariffId = 2

AOCEnabled = 1

AOCInvokeType = 2

Pritariff table is configured as such:





tariff 1 usese AOC-S ane AOC-E free of charge.

Tariff 2 uses all AOC types, and tariff 3 uses only AOC-D.

But I get no charging data on the PRI. ISDN debug has the following:

Facility i = 0x91A12F02010102011F302730250A0102A1208103435950A206810101820101830101A40681013C820103A50681010A820102

Protocol Profile = Remote Operations Protocol


Component = Invoke component, Unsupported operation

Re: Tariff Configuration on PGW

Pls ignore my previous message.

I managed to configure AOC-E.

The entry is the followung:


If I configure erecchrg=2 (currency unit), at the end of the call an unreasonable value is being sent (3157552)

IDSN Debug:

Operation = AOCECurrency

Currency = dollars

Currency amount = 3157552, Multiplier = 1

If I configure erecchrg=1 (charge unit) the same charge units are being sent (60) no matter how long the duration of the call.

I might be wrong in the configuration of parameters, but the correlation of the parameters is not clear (page 11 of the mentioned document).

Also the examples on pp 39-40 have many mistakes.

Is there another source for these parameters?

Re: Tariff Configuration on PGW

Looks like there may be a bug here in addition to correcting the docs.

Please open a TAC case and we can address these issues.
