Application Layaer

The functions associated with the Application layer protocols enable our human network to interface with the underlying data network. When we open a web browser or an instant message window, an application is started, and the program is put into the device's memory where it is executed. Each executing program loaded on a device is referred to as a process. Within the Application layer, there are two forms of software programs or processes that provide access to the network: applications and services.

I have a query related to CAP3 GPRS Charging. Basically CAP3 GPRS works on GSM network, that means it uses SS7 Network topology but for Charging it uses Diameter.My doubt is since Diameter is an application layer protocol in OSI model , how both the models work synchronously for CAP3 GPRS Charging. Any reference would be highly appreciable
