Gx Rule Activation and Deactivation using Charging-Rule-Base AVP ?

+3 votes

If PCRF sends Charging-Rule-Base AVP for activation/deactivation of all rules inside the given rulebase in CCA , then is it possible that PCEF was able to activate/deactivate some rules in the rulebase and other rules activation/deactivation failed ?

If PCRF is sending Charing-Rule-Base-Name then all the rules in the base name are part of one big subset.
If PGW is not able to install any of them, then it should not install any rule and should report to PCRF in Charging-Rule-Report that Charging-Rule-Base-Name is inactive.

In the CCA message sent by the PCRF to PGW during the Initial Attach, may have "Charging-Rule-Base-Name" Or "Charging-rule-Name". I think "Charging-rule-Name" is sent as part of the Charging-Rule-Install , where the Rule is sent from the PCRF to PGW. "Charging-Rule-Base-Name" is sent as part of the preinstalled rules in the PGW.

Now the question is if the PCRF is getting integrated to thirdparty PGW. In this case how PCRF knows about the names installed in the PGW ?

thanks a lot for the responses and hints

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.
