Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control - Version 4.4.0 to 5.0.0 [Release 4.4 to 5.0]
Oracle Solaris on SPARC (64-bit)

Symptoms

In NCC (Network Charging and Control) 4.4.0+, when a TMRN (Time Remaining) feature node is used in a Control Plan before any announcement node (Play Announcement, Play Variable Announcement, Voice Call Cost etc), the SLC (Service Logic Controller) will instruct the SRF/IP (Specialized Resource Function/Intelligent Peripheral) to play the four most significant digits of the Wallet balance before playing the configured announcement.

The TMRN node is used to query the billing engines based on the CLI (Calling Line Identifier), the DN (Destination Number) and the Call Start time to identify how long the desired call can proceed for.  The TMRN node stores the available Hours, Minutes, Seconds and Total Seconds into four separate Profile Tags for use in the remainder of the Control Plan.

The TMRN node can be found under the "CCS Wallet" Feature Node group and the addition of said node should not cause the Wallet balance to start being played by any announcement node.
