    Service Session Profiles Overview

    Service session profiles provide additional flexibility to the Service Manager application by enabling you to assign one or more supported attributes to a particular activation of a service.

    For example, you might assign the same video service to two subscribers, but use different service session profiles to set different time limits for each subscriber’s service. One subscriber uses the video service for 5 hours (18000 seconds) while the other subscriber’s video service is for 10 hours (36000 seconds). Or, you might enable statistics on a subscriber’s voice service and disable statistics on the same subscriber’s video service.

    You can create multiple service session profiles independent of the service activation process. Then, when you activate a service session, you specify the profile that you want to use with that particular service session—you can apply one profile to a service session.

    You can configure the following attributes in service session profiles:

    • statistics—Enables statistics and specifies the type of statistics you want to capture for the service. See Configuring Service Manager Statistics for additional information about capturing Service Manager statistics. You can specify the following types of statistics:
      • time—The service’s duration
      • volume-time—The service’s duration and traffic volume
    • volume—Specifies that the service is automatically deactivated when the indicated traffic volume is exceeded.
    • time—Specifies that the service is automatically deactivated when the indicated time period is exceeded.

      Note: The volume and time attributes use values captured by the Service Manager statistics feature to determine when the threshold is exceeded. Service Manager collects time statistics by default—you must configure and enable volume statistics collection. See Configuring Service Manager Statistics.
