Abstract:For service providers online charging of composite services is necessary
in order to manage financial risks of service delivery in multi-domain environments.
At service level, inter-domain composite services consist of one or
more service components, e.g. access service, IMS communication service or
content service, delivered by different service providers. The 3rd Generation
Partnership Project (3GPP) has developed a framework for off-line and online
charging of IMS-based services. However, the current Online Charging System
(OCS) specified by 3GPPP does not support an online charging function for
composite services. The contribution of this work lies in the design of an online
charging system that addresses the required charging functionalities based on
the IMS online charging architecture. The design consists of a service composition
information model guided by the NGOSS and SID concepts of the Tele-
Management Forum, a set of functional charging system components and their
interactions at their interfaces.
