RE: RADEXT charter, Take 8
Regarding external SDO requirements:
(Note this is not an official view of 3GPP2)
The current version of the prepaid document lines up with what 3GPP2 *has*
done. Ideally we want to maintain compatibility with 3GPP2 while allowing
other people to add their requirements thus continuing interoperability with
3GPP on the other hand will use Diameter CC. There is requirement for
Diameter CC support for 3GPP2. And we would probably want interop between a
RADIUS Prepaid solution and the Diameter prepaid solution in 3GPP2. Note
that integration can happen many ways. One method would be at the prepaid
server itself. In this case you would have Diameter CC for IMS and RADIUS
prepaid for Packet Data both feeding off the same prepaid account.
WLAN Needs a prepaid solution. We are pushing for this to be this method
(for reason stated in the current draft).
One thing to note is the I hope that we can do this a lot faster then the
current schedule. The reason is that prepaid is happening now big time.
Folks are starting to adopt this draft. Dragging our feet will just make
the final work insignificant.
The current words in the charter reflect Diameter CC (specifically one time
event charging). There is no need for that in 3GPP2 hence we currently
don't address that in the draft. One time event charging maybe needed later
in 3GPP2. Frankly I would like to know how that requirement got onto the
Hope that helps....
