The present document specifies the Offline Charging description for Monitoring Events, based on the functional stage 2
description in TS 23.682
. This charging description includes the offline charging architecture and scenarios
specific to Monitoring Events, as well as the mapping of the common 3GPP charging architecture specified in
onto the 3GPP Architecture for Service Capability Exposure. It further specifies the structure and content of
the CDRs for offline charging. The present document is related to other 3GPP charging TSs as follows:
The common 3GPP charging architecture is specified in TS 32.240.
The parameters, abstract syntax and encoding rules for the CDRs are specified in TS 32.298.
A transaction based mechanism for the transfer of CDRs within the network is specified in TS 32.295.
The file based mechanism used to transfer the CDRs from the network to the operator's billing domain (e.g. the
billing system or a mediation device) is specified in TS 32.297.
The 3GPP Diameter application that is used for Monitoring Event offline charging is specified in TS 32.299.
The online charging functionality for Monitoring Events is outside the scope of 3GPP standardisation
