Title
(EN) A NETWORK GATEWAY-BASED BILLING METHOD
(FR) PROCEDE ET SYSTEME DE FACTURATION ORGANISES AUTOUR D'UN RESEAU
Abstract
(EN)
A gateway (1) routes signals between a WAP mobile phone (3) and an application on a Web server (2). The application generates a message for each of a number of events recognised according to the service being provided. These messages are transmitted to the gateway (1). A billing manager in the gateway (1) directs the messages in real time to a real time mediation device (7) if they relate to a pre-pay service, or alternatively to a billing log (5) for off-line processing. The network operator operating the gateway can thus charge in a manner relating to services provided instead of simply call duration.
(FR)
Selon l'invention, une passerelle (1) achemine les signaux entre un téléphone mobile (3) WAP et une application s'exécutant sur un serveur Web (2). Ladite application génère un message pour chacun des événements reconnus en fonction du service fourni. Ces messages sont transmis par la passerelle (1). Un gestionnaire de facturation se trouvant au niveau de la passerelle (1) dirige les messages en temps réel soit vers un dispositif (7) de médiation en temps réel si lesdits messages concernent un service de prépaiement, soit vers un journal (5) de facturation en vue d'un traitement hors ligne. L'opérateur réseau exploitant la passerelle peut ainsi procéder à une facturation basée sur les services fournis plutôt que sur la simple durée de l'appel.
