Charging

Charging Information collected by the PLMN serving the LCS Client

The following charging information shall be collected by the PLMN serving the LCS Client:

– Type and Identity of the LCS Client;

– Identity of the target MS;

– Results (e.g. success/failure, method used if known, response time, accuracy) – to be repeated for each instance of positioning for a deferred location request;

– Identity of the visited PLMN;

– LCS request type (i.e. LDR or LIR);

– State;

– Event (applicable to LDR requests only);

– Time Stamp;

– Type of coordinate system used.

Charging Information Collected by the Visited PLMN

The following charging information shall be collected by the visited PLMN:

– Date and time;

– Type and Identity of the LCS Client (if known)

– Identity of the target MS;

– Location of the target MS (e.g., MSC, location area ID, cell ID, location coordinates);

– Which location services were requested;

– Results (e.g. success/failure, positioning method used, response time, accuracy) – to be repeated for each instance of positioning for a batch location request;

– Identity of the GMLC or PLMN serving the LCS Client;

– State;

– Event (applicable to LDR requests only).

Annex A (Informative):
Examples of MT-LR

This Annex provides examples of both call related and non-call related mobile terminated location request from an external application, where multiple PLMNs are involved.
