Last updated on MARCH 30, 2014

Applies to:

Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management - Version 7.5.0.0.0 to 7.5.0.0.0 [Release 7.5.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

On : 7.5.0.0.0 version, AAA framework

OCMC(Oracle Communications Online Mediation Controller) is using the rating_status value returned by BRM in the STOP_ACCOUNTING response to determine whether the end-of-call announcement needs to be played before disconnecting the call. If it is set to 26 (CREDIT_LIMIT_EXCEEDED) then OCMC indicates to the network to play the end-of-call announcement before disconnecting the call, otherwise the call is disconnected without the end-of-call announcement being played.

In case the subscriber's remaining credit is entirely consumed, BRM returns a rating_status value of 0 and the end-of-call announcement is not played. It works fine when "Requested quantity of 360 seconds (6 minutes) while the subscriber has only $0.50 [300 seconds] available credit" [voice usage with a rate of $0.10/min.]

ACTUAL BEHAVIOR
---------------
BRM returns the rating_status value as 0.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
BRM should return the rating_status value as 26.
