Title
(EN) Method and system for making statistics of media flow information in a next generation network
Abstract
(EN)

A method for making statistics of media flow information may include: sending a request for making statistics of media flow information to a BGF; and receiving statistic information of the media flow from the BGF, wherein the statistic information of the media flow is metered by the BGF after receiving the request for making statistics of media flow information A system and a BGF are also disclosed in embodiments of the present invention. In the present invention, the accurate metering ability of the BGF is employed to acquire accurate statistic information of the media flow, thereby accurate service charging may be implemented and service charging based on used network resources amount and QoS may be supported. Furthermore, the statistic information of the media flow, such as start time, end time, flow count information and statistic information of actual QoS, may help operation and maintenance of the network.
