(Doc ID 1501314.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 06, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 5.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Example Scenario :

A subscriber tries to initiate a data session with no funds left. He can be redirected to a particular website proposing a recharge, this redirection is not having a cost associated to it, being free.

This redirection will create a zero cost reservation on the Voucher and Wallet Server (VWS) which can be viewed in the SMS Screens.

In recent Network Charging and Control versions, it is possible to view the ongoing reservations for a particular subscriber by opening his details in the following screens :

Services -> Prepaid Charging -> Subscriber Management -> Subscriber Tab -> Reservations panel

In pre-5.0.0.0 Releases, zero-cost reservations were not being displayed in the Service Management System (SMS) Screens.

From 5.0.0.0 onwards, zero-cost reservations are also being displayed.

Example screen :

As highlighted in the screen capture above, the reservation is displayed with "None" in several fields. This indicates that the this is a free reservation, and doesn't have for instance a "Balance type", being free.

For further details regarding the reservation mechanism, refer to the Network Charging and Control documentation. A link to download it is available in this document's references.

Changes

Recent upgrade to Network Charging and Control 5.0.0.0.
