3.1  Definitions

For the purposes of the present document, the terms and definitions given in TR 21.905, TS 32.240 and the following apply:
accounting:
process of apportioning charges between the Home Environment, Serving Network and User
advice of charge:
real-time display of the network utilization charges incurred by the Mobile Station
The charges are displayed in the form of charging units. If a unit price is stored by the MS then the display may also include the equivalent charge in the home currency.
Advice of Charge (AoC) service:
combination of one or more services, both basic and supplementary, together with a number of other charging relevant parameters to define a customized service for the purpose of Advice of Charge
billing:
function whereby CDRs generated by the charging function are transformed into bills requiring payment
Billing Domain:
part of the operator network, which is outside the core network, that receives and processes charging information from the core network charging functions
It includes functions that can provide billing mediation and billing end applications.
CAMEL:
network feature that provides the mechanisms to support operator specific services even when roaming outside HPLMN
CAMEL subscription information:
identifies a subscriber as having CAMEL services
Charging Data Record (CDR):
record generated by a network element for the purpose of billing a subscriber for the provided service
It includes fields identifying the user, the session and the network elements as well as information on the network resources and services used to support a subscriber session. In the traditional circuit domain, CDR has been used to denote "Call Detail Record", which is subsumed by "Charging Data Record" hereafter.
charged party:
user involved in a chargeable event who has to pay parts or the whole charges of the chargeable event, or a third party paying the charges caused by one or all users involved in the chargeable event, or a network operator
charging:
function whereby information related to a chargeable event is formatted and transferred in order to make it possible to determine usage for which the charged party may be billed
charging destination:
also referred to as a destination for charging, this is a nominal reference defining the point of termination of a connection for charging purposes
charging origin:
nominal reference defining the point of origin of a connection for charging purposes
circuit switched domain:
domain within UMTS in which information is transferred in circuit mode
GSM only:
indicates that this clause or paragraph applies only to a GSM system
For multi-system cases this is determined by the current serving radio access network.
I2 reference point:
specified for use of call control protocol between MSC Server enhanced for ICS toward CSCF/ACTF, based on Mw reference point as defined in TS 23.002 and the 3GPP profile of SIP as defined in accordance with TS 24.229 and TS 23.292.
inter-system change:
change of radio access between different radio access technologies such as GSM and UMTS
in GSM,...:
qualifier indicating that this paragraph applies only to GSM System
in UMTS,...:
qualifier indicating that this paragraph applies only to UMTS System
near real time:
near real time charging and billing information is to be generated, processed, and transported to a desired conclusion in less than 1 minute
observed IMEI ticket:
record used to describe an EIR relevant event e.g. a blacklisted IMEI
offline charging:
charging mechanism where charging information does not affect, in real-time, the service rendered
online charging:
charging mechanism where charging information can affect, in real-time, the service rendered and therefore a direct interaction of the charging mechanism with session/service control is required
real time:
real time charging and billing information is to be generated, processed, and transported to a desired conclusion in less than 1 s
successful call:
connection that reaches the communication or data transfer phase e.g. the "answered" state for speech connections
All other connection attempts are regarded as unsuccessful.
tariff period:
part of one (calendar) day during which a particular tariff is applied
Defined by the time at which the period commences (the switch-over time) and the tariff to be applied after switch-over.
tariff:
set of parameters defining the network utilization charges for the use of a particular service
UMTS only:
indicates that this clause or paragraph applies only to a UMTS system
For multi-system cases this is determined by the current serving radio access network.
