The present document specifies the offline and online charging description for the Proximity-based Services (ProSe),
based on the stage 2 description of ProSe in TS 23.303
. This charging description includes the offline and online
charging architecture and scenarios specific to the ProSe, as well as the mapping of the common 3GPP charging
architecture specified in TS 32.240
onto the ProSe. It further specifies the structure and content of the CDRs for
offline charging, and the charging events for online charging. The present document is related to other 3GPP charging
TSs as follows:
The common 3GPP charging architecture is specified in TS 32.240.
The parameters, abstract syntax and encoding rules for the CDRs are specified in TS 32.298.
A transaction based mechanism for the transfer of CDRs within the network is specified in TS 32.295.
The file based mechanism used to transfer the CDRs from the network to the operator's billing domain (e.g. the
billing system or a mediation device) is specified in TS 32.297.
The 3GPP Diameter application that is used for ProSe offline and online charging is specified in TS 32.299.
