The 3G/2G Location Change Reporting feature enables the operator to charge the user for location-based services. Location-based charging is a values-added function that ensures subscribers pay a premium for operator-determined location-based services, such as service in a congested area.
This optional feature functions in accordance with 3GPP TS 23.060, Release 9, sections 12.7.5 and 15.1.3 and requires an additional license - the Location Reporting License. With the license, the operator uses the CLI to enable the feature independently for each access type: GPRS (2G) or UMTS (3G).
The SGSN works with the GGSN for this feature. The GGSN must send subscription information to the SGSN for the 3G/2G Location Change Reporting feature to work.
This feature is independent of user location information (ULI) configuration, which allows GTP-C messages to be used for carrying user location information to the GGSN.
A feature-specific license is required. Please consult your Cisco Account Representative for information about the specific license. For information on installing and verifying licenses, refer to the "Managing License Keys" section of the Software Management Operations chapter in the System Administration Guide.
The SGSN 3G/2G Location Change Reporting feature complies with the following standards:
- 3GPP TS 23.060 Release 9
- 3GPP TS 29.060 Release 9.7.0
