Generic Requirements for Common Channel Signaling (CCS) Network Usage Measurement Functionality

Issue Number 02

Replaces TR-NWT-001087 Issue02
ABSTRACT: Issue 2 of GR-1087, Generic Requirements for Common Channel Signaling (CCS) Network Usage Measurement Functionality, replaces Issue 1.
This Generic Requirements document (GR) provides proposed requirements for network capabilities that support the collection of
measurements for CCS network usage. To support the collection of CCS usage measurements, new network functionality is needed since the
current network usage measurement capabilities do not capture CCS network usage.
The usage measurement functionality defined in this GR is mainly intended for collecting measurements for CCS messages that are sent
to or received from other CCS network providers. This document refers to these measurements as internetwork CCS usage measurements. CCS
usage measurements can be used by a company to produce and support invoices sent to interconnecting CCS network providers for use of
its CCS network facilities. In addition, these measurements can be used for intracompany purposes (e.g., for cost allocation within a
network or for network engineering) or to verify an invoice that it receives from another CCS network provider (i.e., bill
The generic requirements contained in this document support only CCS usage measurements (e.g., measurements of the CCS messages
passed between the two switching systems). They do not support measurements for circuit usage or measurements for application
processing at switching systems or SCPs. Usage measurement requirements for circuit usage are contained in other requirements
documents. For example, the usage measurements for CCS-based call detail records can be found in Issue 2 of GR-3012-CORE. The areas
of this document that have undergone significant changes since GR-1087-CORE, Issue 1, are as follows:
- Sections 1, 2, 3, and 4 have been updated to remove all references to implementation (at a STP or a stand alone adjunct) of the
CCS network usage measurement functionality.
- Sections 1, 2, 3, and 4 have been updated to remove all references and requirements for detailed (single message) recording.
- Sections 1, 2, 3, and 4 have been updated to include new requirements for Trunk Group Number aggregation, SS7 Global Title
aggregation, and Calling and Called Subsystem numbers aggregation.
GR-1087 replaces FA-TSY-001045 and TR-NWT-001087.
When using GR-1087, you may need to refer to GR-82, GR-284, GR-385, TA-TSY-000387, TR-TSY-000827, GR-828,
GR-833, GR-508, and/or GR-1343. You may also want to refer to GR-246, GR-317, GR-394, TR-NWT-000444,
GR-1100, and/or GR-3012.
