Service Aware Charging & Control in GPRS network
The Mobile Packet Core evolution is driven by the long-term vision that all current and future services will be based on native IP technology. Currently, the industry focuses on providing service accessibility and pricing transparency to end users, whilst keeping bearer and charging control with the mobile operators. Future activities will be dominated by the integration of new and evolving radio access technologies, support for real-time (multimedia) services and network convergence. Standardization will continue to play a very important role in aligning the industry towards this vision.
