(Doc ID 2111670.1)

Last updated on APRIL 05, 2018

Applies to:

Oracle Communications BRM - Elastic Charging Engine - Version to [Release 11.2.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Scenario :

*  There is a basic offer with a bucket of 1 GB of data for 10Euros.
*  The bucket is assigned to a balance PCRF_STD_BYTES which is credited.
*  After full usage, the data is throttled, the amount used in that fair-used mode is saved in a counter named FU_COUNTER.
*  The initial charge is on euro, but it is fully discounted in a discount.

Use case :

* Step 0 : Initiate Diameter Sy Session between PCRF and ECE.
* Step 1 : Initiate Diameter Gy Session between Network and ECE: Session Id: Gy-23411
CCR-Initial : RSU : 100 Mb
CCR-Update : RSU : 100 Mb USU : 100 Mb
* Step 2a : Gy Session : Session Id: Gy-23734
CCR-Initial : RSU : 500 Mb
CCR-Update 1 : RSU : 500 Mb USU : 500 Mb
* Step 2b : Gy Session : Session Id: Gy-23734 (same as step 2a)
CCR-Update 2 : RSU : 500 Mb
* After step 2b, the balance amount is not coherent, it looks like an USU of 500 Mb was done in step 2b whereas it is only a RSU of 500MB.
