Accounting Management on a DTM Network
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Large investments are currently being made for the infrastructure of voice and data services. The network providers revenues consist of fees from the users of the network. Until today it has been difficult to charge for the actual usage, instead so-called flat rate charging has been applied.
Dynamic synchronous Transfer Mode (DTM) is a circuit switched technique that is designed to meet the requirements of future multimedia services. This includes support for real time applications and high throughput. Physically separated channels, whose capacity can easily be adjusted to the users demands, provide the service. The channels and their guaranteed service make DTM a very interesting technique when it comes to charging for network usage, as the characteristics of the channel can be easily described by relatively few parameters.
This thesis describes how accounting management can be applied on a DTM network. It identifies the parameters that need to be collected and describes how to gather these parameters into call data records (CDRs). Furthermore, it outlines how the transportation of the CDRs to the network providers billing system can be performed.
