CCR-U loop in Gx interface

1) Assume that susbcriber is having lower specifications handset which can support of 300kbps in 2G radio, when susbcriber creates a session/starts browsing then GGSN will send QOS in CCR-I as 300kbps & PCRF will reply CCA-I as 400kbps (Assume that at PCRF end 400kbps plan is configured), subscriber can browse successfully & no extra messages in network

2) Assume that susbcriber is having lower specifications handset which can support of 300kbps in 2G radio, when susbcriber creates a session/starts browsing then GGSN will send QOS in CCR-I as 300kbps, PCRF will reply CCA-I as 400kbps (Assume that at PCRF end 400kbps plan is configured), subscriber can browse successfully, after sometime GGSN send CCR-U1 messages with event trigger revalidation timer expired & qos as 300kbps, PCRF will again execute policy function & allocate 400kbps in CCA-U1. Now GGSN again sends an CCR-U2 with 300kbps QOS-CHANGE as event trigger & again PCRF send 400kbps in CCA-U2, like this it go on loop.

/IPCANTYPE=3GPP-EPS mode/
Concern is why same qos send in case-1 is no loop messages, where as loop in case-2

Would you like to share trace or pcap?

Hi could you please share some kind of trace..that would really help to understand what exactly is happening. Maybe it is the GGSN who is getting the request again and again from UE that is actually being forwarded by it towards PCRF.

Is it possible to use Credit-Control-Failure-Handling AVP in Gx interface. If so, how?

My query is when PCEF sends a CCRequest to PCRF and PCRF does not reply anything, so in that case will that be possible to use Credit-Control-Failure-Handling(CCFH) avp.

Does this behavior allowed as per 3GPP Standards or its upto the customization of the product. Any reference are highly appreciable.

How PCEF decide which QCI_X(where X = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,65,66,67,68,69,70) value need to be send to PCRF.
What is the significance of so many QOS-Class-Identifiers?
Even 3GPP 29.212 doesn't define any reason for classification between different QOS-Class-Identifiers.

I am trying to handle all the error scenarios seen while testing the Gx with the third party. As of now I had coded for just the successful scenarios.

I am looking for some of inputs on these error scenarios and how to proceed and exit gracefully (rather than crashing the code)

  • Dynamic rule config with wrong parameters., PGW sends CCR with the CCR type=TERMINATION_REQUEST. How can PCRF respond (just log error and comeout ?)

  • Static rule config with the "wrong rule name". When the PCRF sends CCA-I with the wrong rule name, PGW sends CCR-U with the Charging Rule Report with the "Rule-Failure-Code" as "Unknown Rule Name". In this case remove those rules and continue OR just comeout with just logging error)

Could you help me figure out CCRequest basic message contents sent from the PGW to PCRF. I am in a process of replacing our Gx interface from the static calls to the Diameter interface.

I am interested in any discussion about this interface.

I am also trying to understand , how the APN info is passed from the PGW(PCEF) to PGW. I think the Called-Party-AVP is used. It is bit contradicting info in the net than the one given in spec, (which says it is used to indicate Emergency APN)

Looking for the information related to PCRF.

Another specific question. When the PCRF decides on a QOS and sends across to P-GW. P-GW might not have got any info related to Dedicated bearer to be established earlier. So how does it map this newly sent QOS for the new dedicated bearer to the one it requested by P-CSCF.

I am trying to understand, how to map the QOS info sent by PCRF to the "dedicated bearer request by the P-CSCF. Can PCRF on sending the QOS, also create the new dedicated bearer id, which is sent back to P-CSCF ?

Any info regarding with is very helpful.
