    Configuring Charging

    You can configure the charging function on the MobileNext Broadband Gateway. The broadband gateway supports the configuration of offline charging. Offline charging can be configured to send Charging Data Records (CDRs) to charging gateways.

    To configure the broadband gateway for offline charging:

    • Configure the GPRS tunneling protocol (GTP) Prime properties for transmitting the CDR to the external charging gateway.

      You must perform this task if you are using an external charging gateway. You can also configure the local persistent storage options to store CDRs on the Routing Engine.

    • Configure the local persistent storage options on the Routing Engine for the CDRs.

      You must perform this task if you do not configure the GTP Prime properties for the external charging gateway.

    • Configure the transport profile, which specifies information about the CDRs being transferred to the specified charging gateways, including the CDR format and aggregation limit.
    • (Optional) Configure the trigger profile, which specifies the charging events that trigger the creation of the CDR or the addition or closure of the container.
    • (Optional) Configure the CDR profile, which specifies the attributes in each transmitted CDR.
    • Configure the charging profile, which specifies the charging behavior to apply based on profiles included in the charging profile. The included profiles must be defined.
    • Configure the charging profiles for the access point names (APNs).
    • Configure tracing for charging operations.
