scope:

This guideline document addresses the basic principles of accounting management, describing the management aspects of PCS accounting including a framework architecture for accounting management, data element definitions and relevance to downstream applications, and provides the association between logical PCS network resources and data elements. This Technical Report (TR) also identifies data requirements for PCS accounting management. Use of these data elements to describe usage within a network may place additional requirements on the accounting information signaled or obtained from network elements. This implies that PCS accounting management may place requirements on interfaces such as defined in EIA/TIA Interim Standard IS-41, Cellular Radio Telecommunications Intersystem Operations, or in documents such as Bellcore's GR-1504-CORE, LSSGR: Generic Requirements for Wireless Service Provider AMA (A Module of LSSGR, FR-64). This document does not address requirements specifically for billing or clearing applications.

Purpose

The purpose of this document is to address guidelines for accounting management (one of the TMN management functional areas) to support Personal Communications Services (PCS). PCS requires the seamless operation of wireless and wireline networks. Many of the technical issues surrounding the interworking of these two types of networks have been addressed in national and international standards bodies. Currently, PCS is in the early stages of deployment. The Telecommunications Management Network (TMN) concepts should be used to manage the PCS Network Elements (NEs). Accounting management involves the real-time generation and collection of usage data at network elements and the processing and distribution of usage data to downstream applications such as billing. Accounting management for PCS is expected to be more complex than accounting management for other technologies because usage data that pertains to the same call may be generated and/or collected in several networks.
