B  Deployment option to support of BSF and DRA coexistence due to network migrationWord‑p. 108
During the network migration, DRA and BSF may coexist in operator's network. The DRA can be a consumer of Nbsf services and the BSF can provide binding functionality for different subscribers. When the AF using Rx, such as P-CSCF, sends Rx request to the DRA, if the DRA has no binding information for the subscriber, based on configuration or via NRF, it selects the BSF. Then the DRA can query the BSF by invoking Nbsf_Management discovery service operation, to get the relevant PCF address, based on which the DRA routes the Rx request to the selected PCF.

C (Normative)  Support for Application Functions supporting Rx interface |R16|Word‑p. 109
To allow the 5G system to interwork with AFs related to existing services, e.g. IMS based services as described in TS 23.228, Mission Critical Push To Talk services as described in TS 23.179, the PCF shall support the corresponding IMS procedures defined in the main body of this TS via Rx interface. This facilitates the migration from EPC to 5GC without requiring these AFs to upgrade to support the Npcf_PolicyAuthorization services in Rel-16.
Reproduction of 3GPP TS 23.503, Figure C-1: Interworking between 5G Policy framework and AFs supporting Rx interface
Up
Session Binding applies for PDU Sessions of IP type only
The functionality described for Multimedia Priority Services (clause 6.11) and Mission Critical service (clause 6.19) applies via Rx interface.
In order to support IMS Emergency services over Rx interface, in addition to the functional description in clause 6.10, the following applies: The PCF shall provide the IMEI and the subscriber identifiers (IMSI, MSISDN) (if available), received from the SMF at PDU Session establishment, if so requested by the P-CSCF. The PCF derives the IMEI from the PEI, the IMSI from the SUPI and the MSISDN from the GPSI.
Any AF using Rx, such as P-CSCF, the BSF determines the selected PCF address according to the information included in the incoming Rx requests and the information stored at the BSF. The BSF is able to proxy or redirect Rx requests targeting an IP address of a UE to the selected PCF.
The following event reporting is supported over Rx interface:

D  PCC usage for sponsored data connectivity |R16|Word‑p. 111

D.1  General

With sponsored data connectivity, the Sponsor has a business relationship with the operator and the Sponsor reimburses the operator for the user's data connectivity in order to allow the user access to an associated Application Service Provider's (ASP) services. Alternatively, the user pays for the connectivity with a transaction which is separate from the subscriber's charging. It is assumed the user already has a subscription with the operator.
A possible deployment configuration for sponsored data connectivity in the non-roaming case is illustrated in Figure D.1-1.
Reproduction of 3GPP TS 23.503, Figure D.1-1: Deployment for sponsored data connectivity
Up
The relationship between the AF and Sponsor and between the Sponsor and ASP is out of scope of this specification. A single AF can serve multiple ASPs and multiple sponsors.
The sponsor may choose to supply the PCF (via the AF) with the usage thresholds that it expects the SMF to enforce. Alternatively, the Sponsor can allow the ASP to enforce such control over the sponsored data connectivity.
The information required for the detection of sponsored HTTP traffic (i.e. server host name) can be verified with the corresponding server IP address/prefix of the IP packets by the SMF. The SMF uses implementation specific logic to perform this verification.
Up

D.2  Reporting for sponsored data connectivityWord‑p. 112
There are two deployment scenarios for usage reporting for sponsored data connectivity. The Sponsor Identifier and Application Service Provider Identifier are provided for sponsored services to the PCF from the AF over the Rx/N5 interface.
In the first scenario the PCF assigns a service specific Charging Key for a sponsored IP flow. The Charging key is used by the SMF to generate separate accounting records for offline charging and and/or usage data records for online charging for the sponsored flows. Correlation of accounting records and usage data records from multiple users per sponsor and/or application service provider is then performed using the charging key.
In a second scenario the Sponsor Identifier and Application Service Provider Identity is included in PCC rules from the PCF to the SMF as defined in clause 6.3.1. For this scenario the same Charging Key may be used both for IP flows that are sponsored and for flows that are not sponsored. Accounting records generated by the SMF for offline charging include the Sponsor Identity and the Application Service Provider Identity. Correlation of accounting records from multiple users per sponsor and/or application service provider can then be based on Sponsor Identity and Application Service Provider Identity instead of the Charging Key. Usage reporting for online charging including Sponsor Identity and Application Service Provider Identity has not been specified in this release of the specification. PCC rules that include a Sponsor Identity and an Application Service Provider Identity should include a Charging Method that indicates offline charging.
