Symptoms

Unix time (also known as POSIX time or UNIX Epoch time) is a system for describing a point in time. It is the number of seconds that have elapsed since 00:00:00 Thursday, 1 January 1970, Coordinated Universal Time (UTC)

Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control (NCC) and Oracle Communications Convergent Charging Controller (OC3C) use epoch time storage in the database.

Considering this, the last date that can be represented in Unix's signed 32-bit integer time format is 03:14:07 UTC on Tuesday, 19 January 2038 (231-1 = 2,147,483,647 seconds after 1 January 1970).
