Configuring Policy and Charging Control Action Profiles for Subscriber Management

 

A PCC action profile defines the treatment to be applied to a subscriber’s packets associated with specific applications or with specific service data flows. A PCC action profile is specified in the then clause of a PCC rule.

Note

You cannot change a PCC action profile while it is being used by a subscriber. To modify the PCC action profile, you must log off the subscribers that are using the PCC rule that includes the profile.

To configure PCC action profiles:

  1. Specify a name for the PCC action profile.
  2. Configure the maximum bit rate for uplink and downlink subscriber traffic.

    The range is 0 through 6144000 Kbps.

  3. Configure HTTP redirection to a URL.
    Note

    A PCC action profile that includes HTTP redirection can only be used in PCC rules that match only HTTP-based applications and all flows.

  4. Configure the steering of traffic to a third-party server for applying services or to a service chain with one of the following methods:
    • Specify the IP address of the third-party server for HTTP traffic.

      Note

      A PCC action profile that includes a steering path can only be used in PCC rules that match only HTTP-based applications and all flows.

    • Specify the routing instance to use to reach the third-party server or service chain.

      The downlink routing instance is applied to traffic going to the access side, and the uplink routing instance is applied to traffic being sent from the access side.

  5. Specify that the PCC action profile steering attributes that a PCC rule applies at the start of a data flow will continue to be applied to that data flow when the PCC rule match conditions are modified, deleted, or added to.
  6. Specify the forwarding class to assign to packets.
  7. Configure the gating status by enabling or disabling the forwarding of packets.
