SBC may insert non-ASCII characters in CDRs when messages are parsed in the initial INVITE.

START

This record indicates that the call has been successfully established/connected and session has successfully started.

STOP

This record indicates that a previously established successful session has now terminated.

ATTEMPT

This record indicates that a call/session failure scenario where a call/session could not be successfully established.

Note

The ATTEMPT record is generated for every INVITE attempt, if the flag attemptRecordGeneration flag is enabled.

INTERMEDIATE

This record captures any changes to signaling/call details during the session. For scenarios where the call duration is long, this record is also generated periodically to indicate session progress.

REBOOT

This record indicates a node reboot occurred.

SWITCHOVER

This record indicates that the node experienced a switchover that is, standby mode went to active due to a switchover initiated from the cli or as a result of a problem on the active node.

SW_CHANGE

This record indicates an LSWU change:

  • An LSWU is successfully completed.
  • An LSWU is reverted.

Gateway Name

Intermediate Time (Date)

Intermediate Date (mm/dd/yyyy) - GMT datestamp when Intermediate Accounting Timer expired, for example 02/06/1999.

This field is combined with the Intermediate Time Field when stream-based CDR logging is used.

Intermediate Time (Time)

Intermediate Time (hh:mm:ss.d) (d=deci-seconds) - GMT timestamp when Intermediate Accounting Timer expired, for example 16:20:38.6.

 This field is combined with the Intermediate Date Field when using stream-based CDR logging.

Disconnect Time (Date)

Disconnect Date (mm/dd/yyyy) - GMT date stamp when Disconnect Request was received.

The Disconnect Date field is not set by reading NTP time. Instead, the disconnect date stamp is calculated by adding the elapsed time between the Setup and Disconnect Messages to the Start date stamp. This indirect method ensures the difference between the Start and Disconnect Dates reflects the true duration of the call, even if the NTP server adjusted time of day during the call. See "Disconnect Time (Time)" below for an explanation and example of this method.

This field is combined with the Disconnect Time Field when using stream-based CDR logging.

Disconnect Time (Time)

Disconnect Time (hh:mm:ss.d) (d=deci-seconds) - GMT time stamp when Disconnect Request was received, for example 16:20:38.6.

The Disconnect Time field is not set by reading NTP time. Instead, the disconnect time stamp is calculated by adding the elapsed time between the Setup and Disconnect Messages to the Start time stamp. This indirect method ensures the difference between the Start and Disconnect Times reflects the true duration of the call, even if the NTP server adjusted time of day during the call.

For example: assume a Setup Message is received at 01:00:00.0 GMT (NTP Time). Then over the next hour the NTP server rolls back NTP time by one minute. Also after exactly one hour (360000 ten-millisecond ticks) a Disconnect message is received, terminating the call. The new NTP time when this disconnect is received is 01:59:00.0 GMT (but would have been 02:00:00.0 GMT if NTP adjustment did not occur). In reality the caller spent 60 minutes on the phone, not 59. Because of the indirect disconnect time calculation described above, the GSX/SBC logs disconnect time as 02:00:00.0 GMT. In summary, the disconnect time is based on the NTP start time plus elapsed time to disconnect, not the NTP disconnect time.

The elapsed time between the Setup and Disconnect Messages can be calculated by adding the "Time Elapsed from Receipt of Setup Message to Service5 Established" and "Call Service Duration" fields. The latter field measures time elapsed from service established to receipt of disconnect message.

This field is combined with the Disconnect Date Field when using stream-based CDR logging.

 

Time Elapsed from Receipt of Disconnect to Completion of Call

Time Elapsed from Disconnect receipt to Call Termination completion in 10 millisecond ticks (Decimal number 0 - 4294967295).

Call Service Duration

Call Service Duration in 10 millisecond ticks. This count is initiated when the answer message is received and continues to increment until one leg of the call is released (Decimal number 0 - 4294967295).

Call Disconnect Reason

Call Disconnect Reason (0 - 255).

The Call Termination Reason Codes are taken from the Q.931 Standard for all codes less than 128.

Codes equal to or greater than 128 are Sonus Reason Codes. The Sonus Reason Codes are never contained in messages sent to the PSTN, but are instead mapped to an appropriate Q.931 Standard code.

The Sonus Reason Codes appear in the system event logs to give specific information about the call failure. These codes may expand in the future.

CAS SSP configuration allows the administrator to specify the disconnect reason codes when errors are encountered during CAS call establishment. Therefore, any of the error codes below could be returned from a CAS call.

If the SBC receives a call release or call disconnect with a cause value that is not listed in the "Call Termination Reason Code" table , then that value is mapped to one of the eight Mapped To cause values listed in the  "Mapping by Cause Code Class" table below. In all cases, the Mapped To value is determined by the Class of the returned cause value as shown in the table. The Class is determined by the three high order bits of the 7-bit representation of the cause value.

For example, cause value 14 (PORTED NUMBER) may be represented as 000 1110, which is Class 000. Cause value 52 (OUTGOING CALLS BARRED) is represented as 011 0100, which is class 011. Hence, from  "Mapping by Cause Code Class" table, cause value 14 is mapped to cause value 31 (NORMAL_UNSPECIFIED) and cause value 52 is mapped to cause value 63 (SERVICE_OR_OPTION_NOT_AVAILABLE_UNSPECIFIED).

When a mapped Disconnect Code is sent to the preceding switch by the GSX/SBC, that Disconnect Code is also placed in either the "Call Disconnect Reason Transmitted to Egress" or the "Call Disconnect Reason Transmitted to Ingress".

ISUP Call Disconnect Code Mapping

The Call Disconnect Reason Code Mapping table provides a "single source" reference that, for each ISUP Disconnect Code received, shows the mapped Disconnect Code that is stored in the CDR that is generated by the ISUP, ISDN, H.323, and SIP services respectively. This table also shows the standard(s) that define a particular ISUP Disconnect Code.

SIP to ISUP Disconnect Code Mappings

When SIP rejection responses must be signaled to the PSTN, the mappings shown in the SIP to ISUP Disconnect Code Mapping table are recommended by RFC 3398 and implemented by Sonus. If the SIP rejection message contains an encapsulated REL message, then the Cause Indicator (CAI) parameter in the generated REL gets set to the value of the CAI parameter received in the encapsulated REL.

Whenever a Reason Header is encountered in any SIP message (such as BYE, CANCEL, 4xx, or 5xx), the GSX/SBC will use the Reason Header cause value for the Disconnect Code.

If the Reason Header is absent from the message, the ISUP Multipurpose Internet Mail Extension (Mime) cause value, if available, is used for the Disconnect Code. Otherwise stated, the GSX/SBC precedence for deriving the Disconnect Code in SIP/ISUP interworking is:

  • Reason Header
  • ISUP Mime (if cause value is available)

This conforms to RFC 3398 recommendations. You may configure the PSX IP PROFILE object to reverse this mapping behavior, thus conforming to the Q.1912.5 recommendation.

Service Delivered

This field identifies the service delivered for VoIP/Circuit Switched Voice (up to 22 characters).

  • For PSTN-to-PSTN calls, such as ISUP-to-ISUP, ISUP-to-ISDN, ISUP-to-CAS calls, this field is "Circuit Switched Voice."
  • For calls involving packetized voice, such as GSX/SBC gateway-to-gateway signaling, H.323, and SIP, this field is "VoIP."
  • When an ATTEMPT record is generated by a blocking script, this field is set to "UNKNOWN" (since the call was not established, the Service Delivered is undefined or UNKNOWN).
  • When an ATTEMPT record is generated after the GSX/SBC routes the call, and then a subsequent switch disconnects the call before the call is established, this field is populated with a valid value.
  • When a START, STOP, or INTERMEDIATE record is generated by a successfully established call, this field is populated with a valid value.

The format of this field is an enumeration when using stream-based CDR logging.

 

Call Direction

This field (up to 12 characters) defines the call direction, such as:

  • PSTN-TO-IP
  • PSTN-TO-PSTN
  • IP-TO-PSTN
  • PSTN-TO-TERM
  • IP-TO-TERM
  • TERM-TO-PSTN
  • TERM-TO-IP
  • IP-TO-IP

The first stage of a two stage call is either PSTN-TO-TERM or IP-TO-TERM. The second stage of a two stage call is either TERM-TO-PSTN or TERM-TO-IP.

This field conveys the signaling scenario for the call, including whether ingress is a PSTN signaling/IP signaling, and whether egress is PSTN signaling/IP signaling. For example, a call that has ingress signaling as ISUP and egress signaling as ISUP, Call Direction = "PSTN-TO-PSTN". For a call that has ingress signaling as H.323, and egress signaling as ISDN, Call Direction = "IP-TO-PSTN". For a call that has ingress signaling as CAS, and egress signaling as GSX/SBC gateway-to-gateway protocol, Call Direction = "PSTN-TO-IP". A call that has ingress signaling as H.323, and egress signaling as GSX/SBC gateway-to-gateway protocol shows Call Direction = "IP-TO-IP".

When an ATTEMPT record is generated by a blocking script, this field is set to UNKNOWN (since the call is not established, Call Direction is undefined or UNKNOWN).

When an ATTEMPT record is generated after the GSX/SBC routes the call, but a subsequent switch disconnected the call before the call is established, this field is populated with a valid value.

When a START, STOP, or INTERMEDIATE record is generated by a successfully established call, this field is populated with a valid value.

The format of this field is an enumeration when using stream-based CDR logging.

Service Provider

This field (up to 23 characters) is populated with the route partition ID the PSX used for routing a call.

Transit Network Selection Code

This ISUP signaling parameter field (string up to four characters, for example 0288) is populated using either the information received in the IAM (if ingress signaling is ISUP) or information returned by the PSX in a policy response. The PSX obtains information from configuration tables. If the ingress signaling group and the PSX do not provide a value for this field, this field is empty.

Calling Number

The Calling Number Address Digits are sent out on the egress signaling side, and is the end result of any digit manipulations and address translation performed by the PSX during the policy request processing on the calling number received from ingress signaling.

Called Number

The Called Number Address Digits are sent out on the egress signaling side, and is the end result of any digit manipulations and address translation performed by the PSX during the policy request processing on the called number received from ingress signaling.

Extra Called Address Digits

This field is a string not used in routing the call, and is received via Overlap Address Messages such as SAM. This field is significant when the ingress signaling protocol supports overlap addressing (for example, SAM messages in ISUP, INFO messages in ISDN), and contains any digits obtained by the GSX/SBC after successfully routing the call based on digits collected before receiving overlap address signaling message.

For example, if GSX/SBC receives "978-321" in the IAM, we route the call using these digits, and subsequently receive a SAM message with 1234, the accounting records contains:

  • Called Number = 978-321
  • Extra Called Address Digits = 1234

Number of Called Num Translations Done by This Node

This field defines the number of called number translations performed on the node (length: decimal 0-2).

This and the following fields carry information about TollFree/LNP translation performed by the PSX.

  • Called Number Before Translation #1
  • Translation Type 1
  • Called Number Before Translation #2
  • Translation Type 2

For example the called number received by the GSX/SBC in the incoming IAM is 1-800-123-1234. The PSX performs toll-free translation, and the result is 617-123-1234. Subsequently, it performs LNP translation, and the result is 781-123-1000.

In this case, the following applies:

Called Number = 781-123-1000
Number of Called Num Translations Done by This Node = 2
Called Number Before Translation #1 = 1-800-123-1234
Translation Type 1 = 2
Called Number Before Translation #2 = 617-123-1234
Translation Type 2 = 1

In another example, if the called number in the incoming IAM was 617-123-1234, and the PSX performs an LNP translation, the result is 781-123-1000. Consequently, the accounting records contains:

Called Number = 781-123-1000
Number of Called Num Translations Done by This Node = 1
Called Number Before Translation #1 = 617-123-1234
Translation Type 1 = 1
Called Number Before Translation #2 – Empty
Translation Type 2 - 0

Although the Called Number Before Translation #1 field is the called number before any address translations are performed., it also represents the called number after any digit manipulations performed by the PSX. To see the called number received from ingress signaling (the called number before any digit manipulation is performed by the PSX), see "Dialed Number" . This field is populated in an ATTEMPT record in the absence of a PSX query response if the preceding switch performs the translation and the call is torn down before the PSX response is received. The presence of the M bit in the received ISUP Initial Address Message (IAM) External Furnish Charging Info (FCI) message indicates the preceding switch performed the translation.

 

Called Number Before Translation #1

This field contains the called number before the first translation is performed, and carries information about TollFree/LNP translation performed by the PSX.

This field is empty ("") if no translations are performed, and occurs when the Translation Type 1 field is "0" (CPC_ADDR_TRANS_NONE) See "Translation Type 1" for details.

This field is also empty ("") when all of the following conditions are true:

  • The dialed number is ported (an LNP query is performed).
  • The SCP response to LNP query did not return an LRN (i.e. translated number).
  • The Translation Type 1 field is "1" (CPC_ADDR_TRANS_LNP); that is, the LNP was the first translation attempted by the PSX.
  • Translation is turned OFF via configuration.

This field is populated in an ATTEMPT record in the absence of a PSX query response if the preceding switch performs the translation and call is torn down before PSX response is received. The presence of the M bit in the received ISUP Initial Address Message (IAM) External Furnish Charging Info (FCI) message indicates that the preceding switch has performed the translation.

Translation Type 1

This field carries information about the first translation performed by the PSX:

  • 0 - CPC_ADDR_TRANS_NONE (no translation performed)
  • 1 - CPC_ADDR_TRANS_LNP (Local Number Portability)
  • 2 - CPC_ADDR_TRANS_TOLLFREE (8xx Numbers)
  • 3 - CPC_ADDR_TRANS_PRIVATE

Called Number Before Translation #2

This field contains the called number before the second translation is performed, and carries information about TollFree/LNP translation performed by the PSX.

This field is empty ("") if less than two translations are performed, and occurs when Translation Type 2 field (see "Translation Type 2") is "0" (CPC_ADDR_TRANS_NONE).

This field is also empty ("") when all of the following conditions are true:

  • The dialed number is ported (an LNP query is performed).
  • The SCP response to the LNP query did not return an LRN; that is, a translated number.
  • The Translation Type 2 field is "1" (CPC_ADDR_TRANS_LNP); that is, the LNP is the second translation attempted by the PSX.
  • Translation is turned OFF via configuration.

Translation Type 2

This field carries information about the second translation performed by the PSX:

  • 0 - CPC_ADDR_TRANS_NONE (no translation performed)
  • 1 - CPC_ADDR_TRANS_LNP (Local Number Portability)
  • 2 - CPC_ADDR_TRANS_TOLLFREE (8xx Numbers)
  • 3 - CPC_ADDR_TRANS_PRIVATE

Billing Number

This field is a string of up to 30 characters. The record is populated using the following precedence:

  • If SCP returns a billing number, it takes precedence over the others.
  • If billing number is present in the incoming signaling message, then it is used.
  • If there is no billing number returned by SCP or in the incoming signaling message, the billing number configured against the ingress trunk on the PSX is used.

Route Label

This record is a string of up to 23 characters. The content of this record depends upon the type of call route that is returned from the PSX:

  • If a normal route is returned, this field contains the ROUTING_LABEL pointed to by the route record. The Overflow and Fallback labels are not present.
  • If an SCP produced route made up of Gateway Name and Trunkgroup ID (as provisioned on the PSX) is returned, this field is empty ("").
  • If an SCP produced route made up of Switch ID and Trunkgroup ID (as provisioned on the PSX) is returned, this field will contain the Route Label (RL) corresponding to the first Switch ID/Trunkgroup.

The PSX supports to send RL for each route of a call in the policy response message to the SBC. The flag Enable Per Route Routing Label is added to the Feature Control Profile (FCP) entity screen. When the flag Enable Per Route Routing Label is enabled on the PSX, the PSX returns the RL for each route. The SBC stores these RLs in the CDR records for each call.

  • When the flag Enable Per Route Routing Label is enabled, the CDR RL field is populated from the per-route data returned from the PSX.
  • When the flag Enable Per Route Routing Label is disabled, the SBC stores the per-call routing label returned from the PSX in the CDR Routing Label field.

Route Attempt Number

The Route Attempt Number (Decimal number 1 - 65535).

Route Selected

The route selected:

  • Gateway Name (up to 27 characters) Example: SBX140
  • TG Name (up to 23 characters) Example: IPTG-NAV2

If Gateway Name is unknown, Gateway IP Address displays according to address type:

  • IPv4 address—dotted decimal format (for example 128.1.22.233 (up to 15 characters))
  • IPv6 address—eight 16-bit hexadecimal values separated by colons (for example 1280:1276:3350:2224:2222:3333:8888:1245).

The Route Selected field is not populated on the egress GW when making GW-GW calls.

 

Egress Local Gateway Signaling IP Address

For packet based egress trunk groups, the IPv4 or the IPv6 address can be used for egress signaling on the local SBC.

  • For IPv4 address type, use the dotted decimal format (for example, 128.1.22.233)
  • For IPv6 address type, use the hexadecimal format (for example, 3ffe:1900:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67cf (up to 39 characters)).

The local SBC generates this accounting record; the device at the far end of the packet network is the remote address.

If the egress trunk group is circuit-based, this field is empty ("").

Egress Remote Gateway Signaling IP Address

 For packet-based egress trunk groups, the IPv4 or the IPv6 address can be used for egress signaling on the far end of the packet network.

  • For IPv4 address type, use the dotted decimal format (for example, 128.1.22.233)
  • For IPv6 address type, use the hexadecimal format (for example, 3ffe:1900:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67cf (up to 39 characters)).

The local GSX/SBC generates this accounting record; the device at the far end of the packet network is the remote address. The device at this address may be another GSX/SBC gateway, and H.323 device, or a SIP device.

If the egress trunk group is circuit based, this field is empty ("").

Ingress Trunk Group Name

The origination gateway logs the name of the external trunk group which exists between the ingress network and the origination gateway in this field. The destination gateway logs the name of the internal IP trunk group which exists between the origination gateway and destination gateway in this field.

Ingress PSTN Circuit End Point

Applicable only for PSTN-IP and PSTN-PSTN calls.

 Ingress PSTN Circuit End Point field – Shelf (1-6):Slot (1-16):Port (1-84):DS0 (1-32):CIC (1-65535):Local Point Code (32 bit HEX format): Remote Point Code (32 bit HEX format). 

The Port range of 1-84 applies to calls that are assigned to a CNS60 or CNS71 module. 1-28 are the T1 circuits on the first T3, 29-56 are the T1 circuits on the second T3, and 57-84 are the T1 circuits on the third T3.

Ingress IP Circuit End Point

Ingress IP Circuit End Point field applies to both local and remote IP addresses.

  • Local IP Address: Port (0-65535)
  • Remote IP Address: Port (0-65535)

The IP address can be in IPv4 or IPv6 format. For IPv4 address type, use dotted decimal format. For example, 128.1.22.233 (up to 15 characters).

For IPv6 address type, use hexadecimal format. For example, 3ffe:1900:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67cf (up to 39 characters).

If NAPT or ICE are enabled on the call then the Ingress IP information is set to 127.0.0.0:5004 in the START/ATTEMPT/INTERMEDIATE CDRs. This happens because STUN messages happen after the INVITE processing.

The STOP record contains the correct remote IP address. Field 23 of the SIP/SIP-I protocol variant string Original Peer SDP address for NAPT or ICE contains the peer IP address as received in the SDP but unconfirmed by STUN messaging.

The default IP address 127.0.0.0 is taken as remote IP address and the default port 5004 is taken as remote port when a NAT call is made without sending media from the endpoints.

Egress PSTN Circuit End Point

Applicable only for IP-PSTN and PSTN-PSTN calls.

Egress PSTN Circuit End Point field – Shelf (1-6):Slot (1-16):Port (1-84):DS0 (1-32):CIC (1-65535):Local Point Code (32 bit HEX format): Remote Point Code (32 bit HEX format).

The Port range of 1-84 applies to calls that are assigned to a CNS60 or CNS71 module. 1-28 are the T1 circuits on the first T3, 29-56 are the T1 circuits on the second T3, and 57-84 are the T1 circuits on the third T3.

Egress IP Circuit End Point

Egress IP Circuit End Point field applies to both local and remote IP addresses.

  • Local IP Address: Port (0-65535)
  • Remote IP Address: Port (0-65535)

The IP address can be in IPv4 or IPv6 format. For IPv4 address type, use dotted decimal format. For example, 128.1.22.233 (up to 15 characters).

For IPv6 address type, use hexadecimal format. For example, 3ffe:1900:4545:3:200:f8ff:fe21:67cf (up to 39 characters).

The Remote IP Address and Port number may not be available in certain call attempt situations captured in ATTEMPT records. Examples include when the remote gateway has no available routes, or when address information is not contained in a backwards release message. In these situations the IP Address and Port display as "0.0.0.0:0". The remote data is always available for completed calls (that is, START, INTERMEDIATE and STOP records).

The default IP address 127.0.0.0 is taken as remote IP address and the default port 5004 is taken as remote port when a NAT call is made without sending media from the endpoints.

Jurisdiction Information Parameter

In Local Number Portability (LNP) applications, Jurisdiction Information Parameter (JIP) provides the Local Routing Number (LRN) assigned to the originating number, which is then used to determine proper billing for the call (string up to 15 characters).

Carrier Code

The carrier identification code (up to five characters) of the carrier used for carrying the call on the egress trunk (for example 0288). This code is provided by the ingress signaling group from the appropriate parameters in its signaling protocol. For example, ISUP obtains it from the Carrier Identification Code parameter in an IAM message, or from the PSX in a policy response. If the ingress signaling group and the PSX do not provide a value, this field is empty.

Call Group ID

An internal identifier (up to 32 bits of hexadecimal data) bound to each call used by the GSX/SBC to group calls associated to each other. Multiple calls (with different Global Call IDs) involved in transfer and redirection scenarios have the same Call Group ID.

Example: "0x0000002F" 

Script Log Data

A string that contains data logged by a Sonus CPL script that was executed for the call.

Multiple variables may be logged within this field, with each variable data separated from the next variable by a configurable separator. The default value for the separator is slash (tick). The data for each script variable includes the variable ID and the variable value, with a ":" as the separator. For example, the data string: 

12:9786928999/108:12345
indicates data for two variables, variable ID - 12, and variable ID - 108. The value of variable 12 is 9786928999, and the value of variable 108 is 12345.

This field is applicable only if a Sonus CPL script is executed for the call. The sub-fields within this field are all variables associated with the CPL script, and are a concatenation of the variables requested by the script to be logged. This field is populated only if a CPL script was executed for the call, and the script requested logging of script variables via the LOG SIBB in the script.

Time Elapsed from Receipt of Setup Message to Receipt of Exit Message

The time elapsed from receipt of setup message to receipt of exit message in 10 ms ticks (decimal number 0 - 4294967295).

Time Elapsed from Receipt of Setup Message to Generation of Exit Message

Time Elapsed from Receipt of Setup Message to Generation of Exit Message (EXM) in 10 ms Ticks (Decimal number 0 - 4294967295).

Egress Far End Switch Type

The egress far end switch type (decimal value).

For mor information on far end  switch type, refer to Far End Switch Type Enumeration Values.

Far End Ingress TG Carrier Code

The Field content depends upon whether the PSX is supporting a JAPAN variant.

If the JAPAN variant is being supported, then this field is the "Own Carrier ID" that is provisioned against the ingress trunk group, and is a string of up to five characters, for example "0288".

If a Non-JAPAN variant is being supported, then this field is the Carrier Code of the carrier that owns the Far End of the ingress trunk group. This is a string of up to 5 characters.

The "Trunk Ownership Fields in START/STOP Records" figure illustrates a typical PSTN-to-PSTN network in which the local GSX/SBC is writing accounting records to its NFS (DSI Level 0) file system. This figure depicts the Carrier Identification Codes that are contained in the Carrier Code of the Carrier that Owns the Far End of the Ingress/Egress Trunk Group fields.

This depiction applies to all PSTN-to-PSTN networks except Japan.

 

Figure : Trunk Ownership Fields in START/STOP Records

Field content depends upon whether the PSX is supporting a JAPAN variant.

This field is a string of up to five characters, and is populated using the following precedence:

  • If a Non-JAPAN PSX variant is being supported, and the SCP returns digits within the AMADigitsDialedWC, and if the Context Identifier Digits within the AMADigitsDialedWC are "003", then these (SCP returned) digits are placed in the record.
  • If a Non-JAPAN PSX variant is being supported and the above conditions are not true, then the Carrier Code of the Carrier that owns the Far End of the egress trunk group is placed in the record. See Figure A – 2, "Trunk Ownership Fields in START/STOP Records" for more explanation about this Carrier Code.
  • If a JAPAN PSX variant is being supported, then the "Own Carrier ID" that is provisioned against the egress trunk group is placed in this record.

In all cases, a string of up to five characters is placed in this record (for example "0288").

Calling Party Category

The Calling Party Category (CPC) field is a hexadecimal value between 0x00 and 0xff. All letters are lower case and leading zeros are always displayed. The length is always four characters, two for the "0x" and two more for the CPC value.

The Calling Party Category Enumeration Values table lists the valid CPC hex values.

Dialed Number

On the ingress GSX/SBC, this is the actual dialed number contained in the incoming setup message (IAM) received by the GSX/SBC from the ingress signaling group before any digit manipulation or address translations are performed by the ERE.

On the egress GSX/SBC, this is the called number from the Gateway-to-Gateway signaling message, and contains digit manipulations performed by the ERE.

Carrier Selection Information

The ISUP Carrier Selection Information parameter (decimal value) populated either by the ingress ISUP SG or by the PSX in a policy response. If neither the ingress ISUP SG or PSX supplies this field, it takes a value of "0".

The following table lists the valid decimal values.

Called Number Numbering Plan

A decimal value indicating the numbering plan type used for the called number representation. It could be one of ISDN/DATA/TELEX/PRIVATE. The numbering plan for the called number is provided by the ingress signaling group (based on parameters obtained in its signaling messages, or using defaults appropriate to the protocol type), or provided by the PSX in the PSX in the policy response (if it provides a called number in the policy response).

The Numbering Plan Indicator (NPI) range includes ISUP Reserve/Spare values. The block of ISUP NPI enumerations (0 to 7) is appended to the existing Sonus enumerations of 0-7. The combined NPI valid decimal value range is shown in the below table.

NPI values less than "8" are interpreted as Sonus NPIs. Values greater than "7" are ISUP (Spare/Reserve) NPIs, to be derived by subtracting "8" from the record value. For example, a record value of "10" is an ISUP 2 NPI (10-8).

ISUP NPIs which map to a Sonus NPI are generated without any offset.

Generic Address Parameter

This field is the original called number if LNP is performed by a switch preceding the GSX/SBC. This field is applicable only if the ingress signaling group is ISUP, and if the IAM indicates that LNP translation was performed by a switch preceding the GSX/ SBC. In this case, the field contains the contents of the ISUP Generic Address Parameter (GAP) digits which contain the called number before the LNP translation is done by the prior switch, as per ISUP protocol.

Disconnect Initiator

This field (decimal in range 0-4) identifies how the initiator session is closed:

  • 0 - INTERNAL

Released internally by the call control entity in the GSXSBC, due either to some error in the processing of the call or to a release initiated by a party on the peer call in a multiparty feature such as ISDN Two B-Channel Transfer or SS7 Release Link Trunking.

  • 1 - CALLING PARTY

Released by the ingress signaling group.

  • 2 - CALLED PARTY

Released by the egress signaling group.

  • 3 - INTERNAL EARLY

Released internally by GSX/SBC at early call attempt stage. Applies only to the ATTEMPT record.

  • 4 - CALLING PARTY EARLY

Released by the calling party at an early call attempt stage. Applies only to the ATTEMPT record.

EARLY disconnects may occur before a PSX Policy Request is sent or a PSX Policy Response is received due to an incomplete setup message or a setup message immediately followed by a disconnect from the calling party.

Ingress RTP Packetization Time

Decimal value indicating the duration of RTP packets in milliseconds, as recorded by the DSP in the resource chain on the ingress leg of the call. If no DSP resources are allocated on the ingress leg of the call, then this field is empty ("").

SBC Call ID

This field, assigned by the GSX/SBC, uniquely identifies a call within a single SBC and hence is equivalent to the SBC's internally assigned Global Call ID (GCID). This value is unique for this call within a SBC, but will vary from SBC to SBC. Use the Gateway-to-Gateway Handle to uniquely identify a call across multiple SBCs. (32-bit hexadecimal value, prefixed by "0x", such as 0x89ABCDEF.)

Terminated with Script Execution

This field (decimal, 0-1) identifies whether or not a script was executed before terminating the call. Possible values:

  • 0 – the call was terminated without executing a script.
  • 1 – the PSX returned a script executed by the GSX/SBC before terminating the call; the call was not routed.

Originator Echo Cancellation

This field (decimal, 0-1) identifies whether or not the GSX/SBC performed echo cancellation on the ingress leg of this call. Possible values:

  • 0 – GSX/SBC did not perform echo cancellation on ingress leg of call.
  • 1 – GSX/SBC performed echo cancellation on ingress leg of call.

This applies only to PSTN to IP and PSTN to PSTN calls. If the call is IP to PSTN, this field is empty ("").

Terminator Echo Cancellation

This field indicates if GSX/SBC performed echo cancellation on the egress leg of this call as follows:

  • 0 – GSX/SBC did not perform echo cancellation on egress leg of call.
  • 1 – GSX/SBC performed echo cancellation on egress leg of call.

This field applies only to IP to PSTN and PSTN to PSTN calls. If the call is PSTN to IP, this field is empty ("").

AMA Service Logic Identification

This field (AMAslpID) is used in an Advanced Intelligent Network (AIN) environment to record the identification of the service logic in the Service Control Point (SCP). (fixed 9-digit decimal number, with any leading zeroes present).

The table below describes the AMAslpID values. The PSX provides this data in Binary Coded Decimal (BCD) format, and the GSX/SBC software converts these strings to the fixed 9-character fields described below. If the BCD string contains more than 9 digits, the converted string is truncated. The terminating sign nibble in the BCD string (typically 0xC) is not present in the AMAslpID field.

If this data is unavailable, this field is empty ("").

See GR-1100-CORE, Section 2 for more detail about this native data.

AMA BAF Module

The Billing Automatic Message Accounting Format (BAF) module is used to record a variety of billing information. The first three characters represent the Module Code Identification that, in turn, specifies how to interpret the remaining characters. See the below table for these codes.

The remaining characters are defined in Section 1.4 "Data Fields" of the Telcordia Technologies Generic Requirements (GR-1100-CORE) Issue 4. Refer to that document for all definitions.

A string of 4-256 hexadecimal characters. If the BAF Module is unavailable, this field is empty ("").

The BAF Module Names table lists each valid BAF Module code and name as published in Telcordia Technologies Generic Requirements (GR-1100-CORE) Issue 4. The Telcordia document defines BAF Module names.

AMA Set Hex AB Indication

AMA Set Hex AB Indicator:

  • "1" - AMA BAF Module contains a known or suspected error.
  • "0" - AMA BAF Module contains no known errors.
  • "" - (empty) AMA BAF Module is not present.

Service Feature ID

This field is a BAF parameter indicating a customer's originating or terminating line characteristics. This indication may be used by an accounting application to assess applicable tariffs to determine the price for services rendered.

This ID, if available, is provided by PSX/ERE as a fixed 3-digit decimal number. If no data is available, this field is left empty ("").

The GSX/SBC passes this data to the accounting record unchanged. The terminating sign nibble (typically hexadecimal C) is not propagated to the accounting record.

The Service Feature IDs table lists valid Service Feature IDs.

FE Parameter

An optional parameter in backwards call control messages (ACM, CPG, ANM, and Gateway-to-Gateway signaling).

If the egress GSX/SBC is the terminating switch, then the GSX/SBC generates this parameter. Otherwise, the downstream legacy switch generates this parameter, and then the GSX/SBC logs and forwards it to the accounting record.

If the FE Parameter is not present, this field is left empty ("").

The record is generated in one of two formats:

  • Short Form—16 hexadecimal characters representing 8 bytes of binary data.
  • Long Form—20 hexadecimal characters representing 10 bytes of binary data.

The Parameter Length field of the record designates whether the record is the Short Form or the Long Form.

Satellite Indicator

Satellite Indicator (SAT):

  • "1" - A satellite trunk was used.
  • "0" - No satellite trunk was used, or a non-ISUP signaling variant such as ISDN or CAS was used.

This value is extracted from the Nature of Connection Indicator.

PSX Billing Information

The following figure displays a high level view of the PSX Billing Information field within an accounting record. This field contains billing data generated by the PSX that is encoded in bytes represented as hexadecimal characters (00 to FF). This variable length field may contain up to 128 bytes of binary data (represented by 256 hexadecimal characters).
Every subfield in the PSX Billing Info field is provisioned on the PSX and placed into the SBC accounting record. Therefore, the results reflect particular PSX provisioning of the PSX Billing Info entity. Take this into consideration when viewing the example representations at the end of this section. Do not expect similar results in your records unless you provision each PSX Billing Info subfield in the same manner.

 


 The PSX Billing Info field is divided into four portions:

  • Header
  • Common
  • Route Specific Tag
  • Route Specific Data

Figure : PSX Billing Info Field Diagram

Each portion is a series of one or more subfields.

The Billing File Info Header contains a unique 16 bit value.

The Common and Route Specific Tag portions are comprised of subfields that consist of a unique Tag, a Tag Data Length Indicator, and Data for that Tag (or value). In any of these subfields, the one byte Tag Data Length Indicator could be zero, resulting in a zero length value.

The Route Specific Data portion is comprised of subfields of Tag Data Length Indicator and Data for that Tag (or value), for each Tag, for each route. In this portion, the Tags themselves were defined in the Route Specific Tag portion and hence are not present in the subfields.

This subfield detail is depicted below:

Tag, Length, and Tag Data

The Billing information Variant Data table lists the Tags, Tag Data lengths, and Tag Data descriptions that apply to the Billing Information Variants. In this table, the Max Length is the value provisioned in the PSX Billing Info entity. The Max Length value is always less than or equal to the Max Length Limit value, which is hard coded into the entity.

As mentioned previously, every Tag/Length/Value subfield and Route Specific Length/Value must be provisioned in the Billing Info entity on the PSX in order to be present in any accounting record. Furthermore, the Billing Info Profile ID that is provisioned on PSX must be associated with the (ingress) trunk group entity, also on the PSX. See the "PSX Policy Server Provisioning Guide" for these procedures.

When the length of the data that contains integer or hex digits is an odd number, the most significant byte will have a leading "0".

When the length of the data that contains BCD digits is an odd number, the most significant byte will have a leading "F".

The SCP may return certain values more than once. If this is the case, the corresponding subfield is populated in the PSX Billing Info field once per SCP reply. Data from each reply is appended to the end of Common Portion field, so the first occurrence of a subfield corresponds with the first SCP reply, the next occurrence with the second reply, and so on. The following SCP subfields may be populated more than once in PSX Billing Info field:

  • 0002 – SCP Pin Digits
  • 0006 – SCP returned Supp Dig
  • 0007 – SCP Call Info
  • 0008 – SCP Bill

The following PSX Billing Info field is defined in the following table.

Outgoing Route Identification

The outgoing trunk group number for calls that overflow from one gateway to another via a Singapore Inter-Gateway Circuit (IGC) trunk. The GSX/SBC extracts this decimal value (0-65536) from the optional "Outgoing Route Identification (ORI)" parameter in the ISUP Address Complete Message (ACM).

If GSX/SBC is not deployed in a Singapore network, the field is left empty ("").

Outgoing Message Identification

The type of route that was selected from a GSX/SBC deployed in a Singapore network. The GSX/SBC will extract this value from the optional "Outgoing Route Identification (ORI)" parameter in the ISUP Address Complete Message (ACM).

The following table lists these routes types.

If the ORI is not present, the GSX/ SBC will generate and populate the Outgoing Message Identification according to the Network Indicator as follows:

  • If the Network Indicator is set to "2" (National 1), then the Outgoing Message Identification is set to "0" (National Route).
  • If the Network Indicator is set to "0" (International) and the GSX/SBC is a transit exchange, then the Outgoing Message Identification is set to "1" (Transit Route).
  • If the Network Indicator is set to "0" (International) and the GSX/SBC is not a transit exchange, then the Outgoing Message Identification is set to "2" (Terminating Route).

If GSX/SBC is not deployed in a Singapore network, the field is left empty ("").

Incoming Route Identification

The incoming trunk group number on a GSX/SBC deployed in a Singapore network. The GSX/SBC will extract this value from the optional "Incoming Route Identification (IRI)" parameter in the ISUP Initial Address Message (IAM).

If the IRI is not present or if GSX/SBC is not deployed in a Singapore network, then this field contains the ingress trunk ID/Number that is configured on the PSX.

Calling Name

The calling party's name in text.

The ANSI SS7 specification defines this field as up to 15 acharacters of name information coded in IA5 format. The GSX/SBC passes this 15-character string to the PSX in Policy Request message. The PSX returns a Calling Name in the Policy Response that is either the same or a new Calling Name. New Calling Names provided by the PSX may be up to 24 characters. Hence the maximum length of this string is 26 characters (24-character string plus delimiting double quotes "").
The following transformations may be applied to this string:

  • Non-printable IA5 characters (1..31 and 127) are displayed as white space (blanks).
  • Commas are displayed as is (because the delimiters are the double quotes).
  • Double quotes are displayed as single quotes.

Outgoing Calling Party Numbering Plan

The GSX/SBC sends the "Incoming Calling Party Numbering Plan" to the PSX in the Policy Request message. As part of the routing process the PSX may manipulate the Calling Party Numbering Plan. This possibly modified value is then sent back to the GSX/SBC where it is used in outgoing signaling messages. This value is logged as the "Outgoing Calling Party Numbering Plan".

The value logged to the CDR does not comply to the standard ISUP enumeration. This decimal value (range 0-15) must be interpreted according to Table 43.

If the PSX does not manipulate this field, then the Incoming and Outgoing Calling Party Numbering Plans is the same.

Calling Party Business Group ID

START-91, STOP-110, ATTEMPT-101, INTERMEDIATE-91

This value represents the Business Group ID of the calling party. The GSX/SBC receives this value in the SIP INCOMING INVITE message.

This decimal value is in the range 0 to 4294967295. If this data is not present or unknown, then a one "1" (Public Business Group) is logged.

SIP is the only protocol which supports Business Group IDs. For all other protocols (ISUP, H323, etc.) this field is logged as "1".

Called Party Business Group ID

This value represents the Business Group ID of the called party. The GSX/SBC receives this value in the SIP INCOMING INVITE message. This value is then sent to the PSX in the Policy Request message. As part of the routing process the PSX may modify this value and return it in the Policy Response. The GSX/SBC logs the value supplied by the PSX, not the value received in the SIP INCOMING INVITE message.

This decimal value is in the range 0 to 4294967295. If this data is not present or unknown, then a one "1" (Public Business Group) is logged.

SIP is the only protocol which supports Business Group IDs. For all other protocols (ISUP, H323, etc.) this field is logged as "1".

Calling Party Public Presence Directory Number

The Calling Party Public Presence Directory Number (PPDN) is an optional SIP parameter which is propagated as the calling number when a call goes into the Public PSTN. If the SIP INCOMING INVITE message's Remote Party ID header contains id-context=ppdn, then the Remote Party ID is interpreted and logged as the Calling PPDN.

This string is up to 30 characters.

If the id-context is not PPDN or if the ingress protocol is not SIP, then this field is empty ("").

Elapsed Time from Receipt of Setup Message to Last Call Routing Attempt

Carriers bill each other based on Carrier Elapsed Time (as opposed to Customer Elapsed Time). Carrier Elapsed time is defined as the Carrier Connect Time to call disconnect time. Telcordia GR-508-CORE defines Carrier Connect Time as:

 "The time when first wink is received from a carrier for Feature Group D (FGD) calls. For Feature Group B (FGB) calls, carrier connect time is the time when carrier off-hook is detected."

The closest the GSX/SBC can get to recording the actual carrier connect time is to capture when the IAM for the selected route was sent. The selected route is always the final route attempted. The GSX/SBC will capture and log the "Time Elapsed from Receipt of Setup Message to Last Call Routing Attempt".

This field contains that elapsed time in 10 millisecond ticks. If no routing attempts were made, then this field is left empty ("").

Billing Number NOA

The incoming ISUP IAM message may contain an optional "Charge Number" parameter. This parameter contains a nature of address (NOA) indicator for the charge number. The GSX/SBC logs this value. See Incoming ISUP Charge Number NOA.

The GSX/SBC also sends this incoming value to the PSX in the Policy Request message. As part of the routing process the PSX may override this value with the Billing Number NOA provisioned for the ingress trunk group. The PSX returns this possibly modified NOA to the GSX/SBC in the Policy Response message. The GSX/SBC uses this returned value in outgoing signaling messages and logs it to this field, the "Billing Number NOA".

This field takes a decimal value in the range 1 to 255. If Billing Number NOA is unknown, then this field is left empty ("").

Incoming Calling Number NOA

START-96 STOP-115 ATTEMPT-107 INTERMEDIATE-98

The incoming ISUP IAM message may contain an optional "Calling Number" parameter. This parameter contains a nature of address (NOA) indicator for the calling number. The GSX/SBC logs this NOA in this field.

The outgoing calling number NOA is determined by the PSX and is logged in the "Calling Party Nature of Address" field. See Calling Party Nature of Address.

This field takes a decimal value in the range 1 to 255. If an Incoming Calling Number NOA is not received, then this field is left empty ("").

Egress Trunk Member Number

The Trunk Member used by the egress trunk group for this call. This number uniquely identifies the channel used for this call. The Trunk Member object can be configured for ISDN, ISUP and CAS service groups.

This field takes a decimal value in the range 0 to 65535. If the Trunk Member for the ISDN, ISUP, or CAS egress trunk group is not configured, then this field is left empty ("").

If the egress trunk group is an IP trunk group, this value is always set to "1".

Selected Route Type

This field identifies the destination gateway's type, such as GSX/SBC Gateway, SIP Proxy Server, ASX Gateway, etc. See the table for a the definition of each valid type. See "Route Selected" for additional destination gateway information that is logged.

This field takes a decimal value in the range 0-8. For terminating records, this field is left empty ("").

Telcordia Long Duration Record Type

A decimal value indicating what type of Telcordia record is being represented:

Table : Telcordia Long Duration Record Type Field

CDR Value

Telcordia Record Type

0

Not a Telcordia Long Duration call or Telcordia Long Duration accounting is not enabled. This value can occur in both INTERMEDIATE and STOP records.

1

Telcordia Long Duration First record. This value means that the call met the Telcordia Long Duration requirements (call has been active for a time which is more than the configured threshold value at the time of daily Telcordia audit). This value only occurs in the first INTERMEDIATE record for a given call, never in the STOP record or in subsequent INTERMEDIATE records.

2

Telcordia Long Duration Continuation record. This value means that at least one Telcordia Long Duration INTERMEDIATE record is generated for this call prior to this record. This value can occur in both INTERMEDIATE and STOP records.

Time Elapsed from Previous Record

Specifies the elapsed time, in 10 millisecond ticks, from the previous record for this call to this record. The previous record is either a START record, or an INTERMEDIATE record. This record is either an INTERMEDIATE record or a STOP record.

If intermediate record mode is interval, this value is approximately 100 times the configured intermediate interval. The interval range of 5 seconds to 24 hours results in a field range of 500 - 8,640,000 milliseconds.

If intermediate record mode is Telcordia, the first Telcordia record range is from 8,640,000 milliseconds (24 hours) to 17,279,999 milliseconds (48 hours minus 10 milliseconds). The continuation Telcordia record range for STOP records is 0 milliseconds (call disconnected immediately following a long duration record generation) to 4,294,967,295 milliseconds. INTERMEDIATE Telcordia continuation records will always show 4,294,967,295 milliseconds in this field.

Cumulative Route Index

This decimal value reflects the overall route index used to route this call, counting all prior policy responses. This index can be combined with the Routing Label (see Route Label) to determine the chosen route.

A related field, "Route Index Used", is an index into the most recent policy response.

For example, assume the RL contains 28 routes, and the 25th route succeeds. The first policy response contains 10 routes, none of which succeed. The second policy response also contain 10 routes, again none succeed. The final policy response contains 8 routes, of which the 5th one succeeds. In this case "Route Index Used" is 5 and "Cumulative Route Index Used" is 25.

The range of this value is 1-65535. This field is empty ("") if no routes are chosen to route this call.

Call Disconnect Reason Transmitted to Ingress

This value represents the disconnect reason (or cause code) sent by the local GSX/ SBC to the ingress network (that is, toward the calling party). If the ingress network is another GSX/SBC, then this field will contain the disconnect reason sent by this local GSX/SBC to that remote GSX/SBC. This disconnect reason is not necessarily the same value the remote GSX/SBC sends to its ingress network. The transmitted reason is derived from the Release Message (REL) and not from other messages, such as ACM. If the release was initiated by the calling party, this field is empty ("").

If the actual disconnect reason (received from egress or internally generated) is not defined by the ingress signaling protocol, then the reason is mapped to a reason which is defined before being sent.

Call Disconnect Reason Transmitted to Egress

This value represents the disconnect reason (or cause code) sent by the local GSX/SBC to the egress network (i.e., toward the called party). If the egress network is another GSX/SBC, then this field contains the disconnect reason sent by this local GSX/SBC to the remote GSX/SBC. This disconnect reason is not necessarily the same value the remote GSX/SBC sends to its egress network. The transmitted reason is derived from the Release Message (REL) and not from other messages, such as ACM. If the release was initiated by the called party, then this field is empty ("").

If the actual disconnect reason (received from ingress or internally generated) is not defined by the egress signaling protocol, then the reason is mapped to a reason which is defined before being sent.

ISDN PRI Calling Party Subaddress

This string identifies the calling party subaddress associated with a call's origin. Although ISDN document Q.931E specifies that Calling Party Subaddress may contain up to 40 characters, this field is limited to 30 characters on GSX/SBC.

Outgoing Trunk Group Number in EXM

The Outgoing Trunk Group Number (OTGN) is an optional parameter in the Exit Message (EXM), and is a string of up to six digits. If an EXM is received containing an OTGN, then this field is populated with that value. If an EXM is generated by the GSX/SBC, then the OTGN in the EXM is taken from the Service Group Profile and that value is also written to this field. Otherwise, this field is empty ("").

Ingress Local Gateway Signaling IP Address

For packet based ingress trunk groups, the IPv4 or IPv6 address used for ingress signaling on the local GSX/SBC. The IPv4 address is in dotted decimal format, for example 128.1.22.233 and IPv6 address in hexadecimal/colon format, for example fd00:21:445:128::7880. (the local GSX/SBC generates this accounting record; the device at the far end of the packet network is the remote address).

If the ingress trunk group is circuit based, this field is empty ("").

Ingress Remote Gateway Signaling IP Address

For packet based ingress trunk groups, the IPv4 or IPv6 address is used for ingress signaling on the far end of the packet network. The IPv4 address is in dotted decimal format, for example 128.1.22.233 and IPv6 address in hexadecimal/colon format, for example fd00:21:445:128::7880. (the local GSX/SBC generates this accounting record; the device at the far end of the packet network is the remote address.) The device at this address may be another GSX/SBC gateway, an H.323 device, or a SIP device.

If the ingress trunk group is circuit based, this field is empty ("").

Record Sequence Number


 The sequence number of this record relative to other records in the file. Depending upon how the parameter is configured, this is either:

  • a 16-bit sequence number from 0 to 65535 (5 characters maximum), or
  • a 32-bit sequence number from 0 to 4294967295 (10 characters maximum).

This number starts at zero and increments by one each time a new record is written. The software maintains only one sequence regardless of the record type. When the sequence number reaches its maximum configured value, either 65535 or 4294967295, it wraps to zero and begins incrementing again (for example 65534, 65535, 0, 1, 2...). The incrementing continues through file roll-overs.

A sequence number of zero occurs only on a reboot (switchover), or a natural wraparound. (A natural wraparound sequence is 65534, 65535, 0, 1, 2 and so on.)

This field is intended to help reconcile billing records after events which may result in lost accounting records.

Transmission Medium Requirement (TMR)

This field is a fixed parameter in the ITU ISUP Initial Address Message (IAM).

For ISUP calls, this information is populated from the TMR parameter, if it is present. If the TMR parameter is absent, this information is populated from the USI parameter. The TMR parameter is mandatory in ITU and the USI parameter is mandatory in ANSI. Because the TMR parameter or the USI parameter is always present, this field is always populated.

 For CAS ingress calls, this field is populated from the capabilities set in the circuit service profile as follows:

  • If value = circuitModeData, then T1 channels are set to CPC_TG_TRANSFER_CAP_RESTRICTED. E1 channels are set to CPC_TG_TRANSFER_CAP_RESTRICTED if type is restricted, or to CPC_TG_TRANSFER_CAP_UNRESTRICTED if type is unrestricted.
  • If value = voiceOnly, then T1 and E1 channels are set to CPC_TG_TRANSFER_CAP_SPEECH.
  • If value = voiceorCircuitModeData, then T1 and E1 channels are set to CPC_TG_TRANSFER_CAP_3_1KHZ_AUDIO.

For incoming SIP calls, if the incoming INVITE has PSTN parameters, then the value of this field is taken from those PSTN headers. If an incoming SIP call is received without PSTN parameters, the default value CPC_TG_TRANSFER_CAP_3_1KHZ_AUDIO is placed into this field. For outgoing SIP calls, if Include PSTN Parameters is enabled in the PSX IP Signaling Profile, then these parameters are included in the SIP headers. Otherwise they are not included in outgoing INVITE.

The decimal value in range 0-255 must be interpreted according to the following table:

Information Transfer Rate (ITR)

For ISUP calls, the User Service Information (USI) parameter is mandatory for ANSI, and optional for ITU. The five least significant bits of the second octet in this parameter contain the Information Transfer Rate. If the USI is present, this field is populated according to the ISUP values in the table below. If the USI is absent, then this field is always populated with the value CPC_TG_TRANSFER_RATE_64KBITS.

For CAS ingress calls, this field is always CPC_TG_TRANSFER_RATE_64KBITS.

For SIP ingress calls, if the incoming INVITE has PSTN parameters, then the value of this field is taken from those PSTN headers. If an incoming SIP call is received without PSTN parameters, the default value CPC_TG_TRANSFER_RATE_64KBITS is placed into this field. For outgoing SIP calls, if includePstnParameters is enabled in the PSX IP Signaling Profile, then these parameters are included in the SIP headers. Otherwise they are not included in outgoing INVITE.
This decimal value in the range 0-31 must be interpreted according to the table below . Note that these values do not correspond to the ISUP Q.931 definitions.

Unrecognized Raw ISUP Calling Party Category

This field contains the actual (raw) value of the calling party category if this value is not recognized by this GSX/ SBC, otherwise this field is empty ("").

If present, the decimal value of this field is in the range 0-255.

Egress RLT Feature Specific Data

The Egress Release Link Trunking (RLT) Feature Specific Data field is populated only when SS7 Release Link Trunking occurs on the egress leg of the call, otherwise this field is empty ("").

A Facility Request Message (FAR) is sent backward from the Redirecting Node to the call-originating node (Pivot Node) to request activation of an RLT service.

Any call that is bridged or redirected creates two accounting records: one for the initial call (AR) and one for the bridged or redirected call (BR). The table below presents the CDR logging scenarios for original, bridged, and redirected calls.

If more than one RLT (redirecting or bridging) occurs on the egress leg of the call, then only the data for the last RLT is present. When bridging occurs, the redirect Sub-Fields are empty (""). Similarly, when redirect occurs, the bridging Sub-Fields are empty (""). This field is a maximum of 598 characters, including all comma separators and the double quotation mark delimiters ("").

The Release Link Trunking Sub-Fields page provide additional explanation about certain Sub-Fields.

Example RLTs:

This field captures the redirection information that happens to a call before it is processed by the GSX/SBC. This information is supplied by the originating network in the call setup message (the ISUP IAM message or the SIP INVITE message). This field does not refer to redirects performed internally by the GSX/SBC or PSX.

This field format is similar to the "Egress RLT Feature Specific Data" and the "Two B-Channel Transfer Feature Specific Data".

Field format is described in the below table.

When the ingress protocol is SIP, all diversion headers present in the incoming SIP INVITE message are used to populate Redirection Feature Specific Data. The GSX/SBC maps the SIP diversion headers into ISUP parameters. The name-addr of the top-most Diversion header is used to set the ISUP Redirecting Number. The diversion-reason of the top-most Diversion header is used to set the ISUP Redirecting Reason.

When multiple Diversion headers are present, the name-addr of the bottom-most Diversion header is used to set the ISUP Original Redirecting Number, and the diversion-reason of the bottom-most Diversion header is used to set the ISUP Original Redirecting Reason. The ISUP Redirect counter is set equal to the sum of the counters of all Diversion headers in the SIP message.

A diversion header that does not explicitly specify a diversion-counter tag counts as "1". If no redirect occurs, then the entire "Redirection Feature Specific Data" field is empty ("").

Example Redirection Feature Specific Data Field:

"REDI,11,3971912318,3971912315,1,2,10,0,10,6,01793601618,2,19"

Ingress RLT Feature Specific Data

The Ingress RLT (Release Link Trunking) Feature Specific Data field is populated only when SS7 Release Link Trunking occurs on the ingress leg of the call, otherwise this field is empty ("").

A Facility Request Message (FAR) is sent backward from the Redirecting Node to the call-originating node (Pivot Node) to request activation of an RLT service.

Any call bridged or redirected creates two accounting records: one for initial call (AR) and one for bridged or redirected call (BR). Table Encoding Data Detail presents the CDR logging scenarios for original, bridged, and redirected calls.

If more than one RLT (redirecting or bridging) occurs on ingress leg of the call, only the data for the last RLT is present. When bridging occurs, the redirect Sub-Fields are empty (""). Similarly, when redirect occurs, bridging Sub-Fields are empty ("").

This field is a maximum of 598 characters, including all comma separators and the double quotation mark delimiters (""). Table USI User Information Layer 1 describes the field format. Table Release Link Trunking Failure provides additional explanation about certain SubFields.

PSX Index

This field, which is configured on the GSX/SBC, contains the index of the PSX that routed the call. The decimal value of this field is 0-10, as shown below:

The names and indexes of the configured PSXs are recorded in the system event log at PSX creation time. An example of such an entry is:

119 06112004 194858.00001:1.01.MAJOR .DS : PSX created, name: boston, index: 2

PSX Congestion Level

This field contains the enumerated congestion level value sent to the GSX/SBC by the PSX in the Policy Response. These enumeration are listed below. If no PSX was involved in routing the call or if congestion control was disabled, then this field is empty ("").

PSX Processing Time

This field contains the time in milliseconds that used by PSX to process a Policy Request. This value contributes to the policy response time. If no PSX is involved in routing the call or if no PSX transaction took place, then this field is empty ("").

If present, the decimal value of this field is in the range 0-65535.

Script Name

This field contains the file name (string of up to 23 characters) of a script executed on behalf of a call. If more than one script is executed, this field contains the name of the last script that executed.

If no script was executed on behalf of this call, this field is empty ("").

Ingress External Accounting Data

This field, consisting of an ASCII string with the delimiters "", contains external accounting data from the ingress leg of the call, similar to the "Ingress Protocol Variant Specific Data". This string takes the form:
"<protocol identifier>,<external accounting data>"

The maximum length of the field, including the delimiters, is 128.

Because accounting strings from external entities can contain characters to corrupt a CDR record, the GSX/SBC software performs the following character substitutions:

  • all control characters, such as <CR>, <DEL>, <ESC>, and so on, are converted to space (" ")
  • double quote (") is converted to single quote (')

 

Currently, SIP is the only protocol that logs external accounting data with the string generated when a SIP external signaling peer supplies <external accounting data>:
"SIP-PCDR,<external accounting data>"

Egress External Accounting Data

This field, consisting of an ASCII string with the delimiters "", contains external accounting data from the egress leg of the call, similar to the "Egress Protocol Variant Specific Data". This string takes the form:
"<protocol identifier>,<external accounting data>"

The maximum length of the field, including the delimiters, is 128.

See "Ingress External Accounting Data"  for explanation field.

Currently, SIP is the only protocol that logs external accounting data with the string generated when a SIP external signaling peer supplies <external accounting data>:

Egress Interarrival Packet Jitter

The maximum interarrival packet jitter time (in millisecond) recorded by the egress DSP/NP. This field is a decimal representation of a 16-bit number, hence must be in the range 0-65535 (This is applicable to RTCP statistics for VoIP calls only).

Egress Last Measurement for Latency

The last measurement for latency (in milliseconds) as recorded by the egress DSP. This field is a decimal representation of a 16-bit number, hence must be in the range 0-65535 (applicable to RTCP statistics for VoIP calls only).

Ingress Maximum Packet Outage

This field contains a decimal value up to 10 digits, and logs the maximum duration between received packets, in milliseconds, on ingress side of the call.

Egress Maximum Packet Outage

This field contains a decimal value up to 10 digits, and logs the maximum duration between received packets, in milliseconds, on egress side of the call.

Ingress Packet Playout Buffer Quality

This field summarizes the DSP media quality for the most recent 31 time intervals of the ingress leg of the call. The default time interval is 20,000 milliseconds or 20 seconds. Customize this time interval via the CLI:

The playout buffer quality is averaged over this interval and then quantized into one of four discrete levels characterized by the bit patterns:

  • 00 = GOOD
  • 01 = ACCEPTABLE
  • 10 = POOR
  • 11 = UNACCEPTABLE

Data for the most recent 31 time intervals is recorded. These 62 bits of data (31 intervals x 2 bits/interval) are represented in CDR as a 16-character hexadecimal value. An end of data token (bit pattern 11) is used to indicate start of valid data. All data to the left of the token is invalid, while all data to the right is valid.

This field contains 16 hexadecimal characters without the "0x" prefix. Hex characters "A" through "F" are capitalized. If a DSP resource was not used for the ingress leg of the call, this field is empty ("").

The table below presents several example field values and the explanation of each.

The end of data bit pattern occurs in the 21st most recent position. This means the 20 intervals to the right are valid and the 11 intervals to the left are invalid. Of the valid intervals, all were bit pattern 00 (GOOD), except for the 3rd most recent bit pattern 01 (ACCEPTABLE), the 9th most recent bit pattern 11 (UNACCEPTABLE), and the 10th most recent bit pattern 10 (POOR)

The end of data bit pattern in left most position means the call duration was at least 31 intervals and the most recent 31 intervals were bit pattern 00 (GOOD).

The length of the first measurement interval can range between 0 milliseconds and the configured interval length.

Egress Packet Playout Buffer Quality

This field summarizes the DSP media quality for the most recent 31 time intervals of the egress leg of the call.

This field contains 16 hexadecimal characters without the "0x" prefix. Hex characters "A" through "F" are capitalized. If a DSP resource was not used for the egress leg of the call, this field is empty ("").

See Ingress Packet Playout Buffer Quality   for a full explanation of this field.

Answer Supervision Type

This field indicates the type of answer that was detected when ANSWER SUPERVISION was in effect for the call.

Answer Supervision mechanism ensures calls are correctly cut through and accounted for when answer signaling is absent from the call flow. When enabled, a timer starts when the egress call setup occurs, and then clears when the call is answered. If the timer expires an action is initiated to either clear the call or declare the call answered and cut through the forward voice path.

ANSWER SUPERVISION may be configured for all signaling prototypes except GSX/SBC Gateway to Gateway signaling. When ANSWER SUPERVISION is enabled, one of the four scenarios below establishes the answer type:

  • Called party answers the call (causing a return of the ANM message), before the answer supervision timer expires. An answer type of HARDWARE is presented in the START, INTERMEDIATE, and STOP records.
  • Calling or called party disconnects the call (causing a return of the REL message), before the answer supervision timer expires. An answer type of HARDWARE is presented in the ATTEMPT record.
  • The answer supervision timer expires and the call is disconnected before the called party answers the call (causing a return of the REL message). An answer type of SOFTWARE is presented in the ATTEMPT record.
  • The answer supervision timer expires, after which the call is answered (causing a return of the ANM message). An answer type of SOFTWARE is presented in the START, INTERMEDIATE, and STOP records.

If ANSWER SUPERVISION is disabled, an answer type of empty (""), is presented in all records.

This field takes a decimal value in the range 1-2, or remains empty (""), as summarized in the following table:

CAP Specific Data. Must be the length in bytes that specified in FCI Data Length. Each byte is represented by two hexadecimal characters (00 to FF).

 FCI data is divided into three portions:

  • FCI Variant ID
  • FCI Leg Count
  • FCI Variant Specific Data

The FCI Variant ID contains a single byte FCI Variant ID value. This value is used to determine the format of the rest of the data. Value 1 is defined for CAP (this is the only value currently defined for this GSX/SBC software release). In the future this FCI Variant ID may be extended to include the Intelligent Networking Application Part (INAP) and others.

The Leg Count contains a single byte count indicating how many sets of data are present. For FCI data of CAP, there is one set of data per Leg ID. For example, if FCI data is only present for leg 1, then the Leg Count is set to 1. If FCI data is present for leg 1 and leg 2, then the Leg Count is set to "2".

For CAP variant specific data, each set of FCI data contains three sub-fields, Leg ID, Data Length, and Data. The Leg ID field determines the call leg. For CAP this is either 1 or 2. The Data Length field determines the variable length of the FCI data. The FCI data can be up to 160 bytes per leg. The actual FCI Data field contains the binary data as received by PSX from the external sources.

MTA Information

SBC Call Data Record (CDRs) support storing Major Trading Area (MTA) information in CDRs. MTA is a boundary that segments a country for telecommunication licensing and consists of several Basic Trading Areas (BTAs). PSX can route the call based on MTA of calling and called parties. This record is a string, which may contain up to 49 characters. The content of this record depends upon the feature control profile and NPA NXX configuration in PSX.

If PSX determines MTA for calling and called parties, then PSX returns this information to SBC. Otherwise, the CDR field MTA Information is empty (“”).

This field is formatted as a quoted string of four comma-separated values. The values include; Origination Primary MTA, Origination Secondary MTA, Destination Primary MTA, and Destination Secondary MTA. For example,  ...,"18,11,08,11"....

The following table provides the MTA stream accounting information:

Table : MTA Stream Accounting Information

VBR Billing Data

SBC Call Data Record (CDRs) support storing Value Based Routing (VBR) information in CDRs.

The following fields are used to populate VBR details in SBC CDRs:

  • VBR Common Billing Data
  • VBR Route Billing Data

The following table provides the VBR stream accounting information:

Table : VBR Stream Accounting Information

Field NamesIDType
VBR Common Billing Data242String
VBR Route Billing Data243String

VBR Common Billing Data

This record is a string of 256 characters. SBC receives the VBR Billing Information in the policy response and writes it to CDR. 

This field is optional and is populated when the PSX returns the VBR Route.

The PSX captures the following common or global VBR information and sends it in the policy response:

  • Destination
  • Country Code
  • Customer Id
  • Offer Id
  • Sell/Offer Price

The Sell/Offer price is present, if an Offer rate sheet is configured on the selected offer. SBC includes this data in the VBR Common Billing Data.

VBR Route Billing Data

This record is a string of 256 characters. For every route that is part of VBR routing label, the billing information is captured as per route data in the policy/trigger response by PSX and is sent to SBC. SBC treats it as opaque data and writes it to CDR. This field is optional. This is populated when the PSX returns a VBR Route.

For every route (routing label route) within a policy response, the following information is captured:

  • Vendor ID
  • Cost
  • Jurisdiction

The Vendor Id represents the vendor who owns the Trunk Group. The cost is derived from active vendor rate sheet. The jurisdiction represents the jurisdiction associated with the selected rate sheet entry of the vendor. This may vary from vendor to vendor. For non VBR routes, this AVP will be empty. A maximum of 10 routes is considered for VBR Billing data purposes.

Access Network Charging Information

SBC includes the access-network-charging-info parameter received through PCRF over the Rx or Gx interfaces in the P-charging-vector header field in the first request or response originated by UE. When the charging information is available in SBC after the local resource reservation is complete, UE traverses the SBC. If P-CSCF receives Access Network Charging Information from PCRF server, P-CSCF sends Access Network Charging Information in the CAM records.

The format for Access Network Charging Information is "Character string, Max length 130".

Example: ggsn=10.10.0.1; auth-token=0;pdp-info=pdp-item=uniqueNum;pdp-dig=no;gcid=gcIdValue;flow-id=({0,0})

Access Transfer Specific Data

The location records for Access Transfer Specific Data are START, STOP, ATTEMPT, and INTERMEDIATE.

The following table details each of the sub-fields of Access Transfer Specific Data:

5Original Calling NumberSTRING3012345678
6Original Called NumberSTRING3032654879

Both the Original and Target Call (Handover call) are considered as individual calls and have separate CDR that is generated for each call. In case of a PS-to-PS handover call, the field "Access Transfer Specific Data" of the Target call contains the following information:

  • Transfer Type as "PS2PS"
  • Source access GCID - Contains the GCID of the Orignal call which is handed over
  • Target access GCID - Contains the GCID of the Target call

All PS-to-PS Handover call can be identified by the "Transfer Type" indicated above and the source call which is handed over can be identified from the Source access GCID. The CDR of the original call does not have any indication that it is handed over to a new Target call. Any correlation of CDR must come backward by identifying the Target call and then tracing back the Original Call.

Emergency Indicator

The "Emergency Indicator" indicates the IMS session as an IMS emergency session or IMS registration. This covers both INVITE and REGISTER messages.

The format for Emergency Indicator is "Boolean of max length 1".

Ingress Dtls-Srtp: Dtls-Srtp status info

The "Ingress Dtls-Srtp: Dtls-Srtp status info" indicates if the DTLS negotiation in the corresponding stream is successfully completed, the value is enabled or disabled for an ingress call.

The supported values are:

  • Empty (dtls disabled)
  • 1 (dtls termination)
  • 2 (dtls relay)

Egress Dtls-Srtp: Dtls-Srtp status info

The "Egress Dtls-Srtp: Dtls-Srtp status info" indicates if the DTLS negotiation in the corresponding stream is successfully completed, the value is enabled or disabled for an egress call.

The supported values are:

  • Empty (dtls disabled)
  • 1 (dtls termination)
  • 2 (dtls relay)

This field provides the ID of the Ingress zone.

Egress Zone Id

This field provides the ID of the Egress zone.

Video Cac

The media type (Video) and CAC level (TG/zone/Shared...) of  a video stream that pruned because the configured video threshold limit is reached is included as a new CAM field called "Video Cac". This field includes the media type (video) and the CAC level  (TG, ZN, SH, EP....). This CAM field includes the following values, as applicable, when the video threshold level is reached:

  • ZN-Video
  • SH-Video
  • TG-Video
  • EP-Video

Ingress IP Prefix Found TG Name

The CDR includes "Ingress Trunk Group Name" field for both the ingress IPTG found with prefix match and the IPTG determined based on the SIP Message Manipulation (SMM). If SMM is not used to determine the ingress IPTG, the relevant CDR field is empty.

  • If the ingress Trunk Group is configured using SMM and applied for a call:
    Ingress Trunk Group Name: TG Name configured using SMM
    Ingress IP Prefix Found TG Name: IPTG found with prefix match
  • If the ingress Trunk Group is not configured using SMM or not applied for a call:
    Ingress Trunk Group Name: IPTG found with prefix match
    Ingress IP Prefix Found TG Name: empty

Transcode Resource Type

This field indicates the type of transcoder (Media Resource Function (MRF) or a TSBC) used for the call.

MRF Information

This field Stores MRF related information.

This field contains two sub-fields:

  • Signaling IP
  • Signaling PORT

Note

 The fields corresponding to Call Recorder 2 and Call Recorder 3 are supported in future release.

SO-SBC

This field is added to the CAM records to indicate that the call was in a SO-SBC mode.

The SO-SBC field is a string field indicating the used signaling mode (global, onAnswer, onPolicyRsp....). The default is signaling only not set and this field will be empty.

Note

 Currently, only the global mode is supported.

The following are the proposed string values:

  • SO-g - indicates signaling only on global mode.
  • SO-p  - indicates signaling only on policy response.
  • SO-a - indicates signaling only on answer.
