Oracle Communications Network Charging and Control (NCC) version 22.214.171.124.0 was released on 29 Apr 2022.
This announcement lists various functional and operational enhancements delivered in this release.
Extended tracing capabilities
NCC now support a more flexible and extended subscriber tracing feature. This provides the capability to selectively trace a call flow for a list of subscriber ids and/or network sessions flowing through the NCC server. Now tracing can be enabled per subscriber or even per subscriber session. CSPs can now analyze their configurations, network mapping, and expected results for specific flows.
The new RESTClient interface for NCC is used for sending REST requests from NCC to REST server endpoints. The interface supports generic request types which can be forwarded towards any REST server endpoints with required design time customizations. It also supports requests to Balance Transfer and Apply Loan endpoints in the BRM REST server.
Improved periodic charge handling in case of VWS failovers
NCC now provides options to hold periodic charge plugin execution, expiry bucket processing, and grovelling for a configured duration, in case of VWS start-ups or VWS failovers from active VWS to non-active VWS. This helps in controlling double periodic charge renewals in case of VWS failovers.
Oracle Linux 8 and Oracle Database 19.13 Certification
NCC is now certified to run on Oracle Linux 8 and Oracle Database 19.13.
Updated documentation and packages are available for download from the Oracle Software Delivery Cloud. See reference provided for detailed instructions on accessing the Documentation Media Pack (includes release notes).
