P906 QUASIMODO - Quality of Service MethODOlogies and solutions

D3

Methodologies and policies for QoS charging

Issue date: February 2001
Confidentiality: For full publication
Format: 1 volume (25 pages)
Overview:

Internet QoS is the challenge, and QoS charging contributes many complications.

The project has undertaken the evaluation of QoS charging approaches independently developed by BT Labs in collaboration with UCL and by DT T-Nova in collaboration with GMD FOKUS. The objective of both efforts was to design, specify, prototype and evaluate QoS charging solutions.

Despite the fact that some vendors are already offering QoS charging products on a commercial basis, it becomes clear from this document that these products cover only parts of the system a provider would need to be able to charge for QoS enabled IP services efficiently.

The major results of this work are:

  • A complete and systematic QoS charging system design, specification
    and experimental evaluation;
  • Identification of system components which have standardisation potential.
Applicability:

Managers, QoS experts, specialists in billing, charging and accounting for IP services, service designers, specialists in customer care solutions are the target audience of this project report.
