9.1 Configuration/provisioning issues

9.1.1 UPSF

Appropriate Initiate Filter Criteria have to be configured in the UPSF for each of the public user identities associated to HES usage. Within a user profile, one of the IFCs shall lead to the AS providing the HES logic for the user.

Shared IFCs may be used to ease provisioning and minimize the amount of signalling information over the Cx reference point.

9.1.2 User Equipment

SIP-based User Equipment can be configured with the following pieces of information:

– Rules the UE must apply to dialled numbers in order to detect the use of private numbering plans and determine which private numbering plan is being used.

NOTE: It is expected that these rules do not require a complete number to be available to derive a private numbering plane.

– Phone-context identifiers or domain names associated to each numbering plan supported inside their HES domain.

9.1.3 AGCF

The AGCF shall be configured with the same pieces of information than a SIP-based User Equipment.

9.1.4 Charging issues

The charging architecture and functions defined in 3GPP TS 32.260 [13] are applicable.

Charging Information on operator-assisted communications shall be collected and recorded for the public user identity of the actual calling user rather than the public user identity of the operator, even though this operator may be connected to the network as a normal user. The collected information shall enable creating a consolidated charging record including the information related to the segment between the user and the operator and between the operator and the destination.

Charging records shall keep track of the services invoked during each communication.

Charging records shall contain sufficient information to enable generating consolidated reports based on:

– the distribution of communications during a day, a week, a month or a year;

– the distribution between internal and external communications;

– the number of incoming/outgoing communications;

– the number of nationals/internationals sessions;

– the number of forwarded communications per forwarding condition;

– the use of voice mail and conferencing services;

– the number of successful/unsuccessful communications.

Annex A (informative):
Processing of dial strings by the UE

Processing of a dial string by a UE depends on whether one or more private numbering plans are supported.
