ip-can-type (PCRF Partition)


Hierarchy Level


Configure an IP connectivity access network (IP-CAN) value according to what best fits your operating environment and access network. The Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF) partition requires that you configure this statement. The Policy Control and Charging (PCC) enables a centralized control to ensure that the service sessions (IP-CAN sessions) are provided with appropriate bandwidth and QoS.

An IP-CAN bearer is the IP transmission path of defined capacity, delay, and bit error rate. An IP-CAN session incorporates one or more IP-CAN bearers. Support for multiple IP-CAN bearers per IP-CAN session is IP-CAN specific. An IP-CAN session exists as long as the related IPv4 address or IPv6 prefix is assigned and announced to the IP network.

If an IP-CAN session is modified, the Policy and Charging Enforcement Function (PCEF) first uses the event trigger to determine whether to request the PCC rules for the modified IP-CAN session from the PCRF. Then upon reception of updated PCC rules from the PCRF, the PCEF activates, modifies, or removes the PCC rules as indicated by the PCRF.
