Remote address-based RADIUS accounting counts the number of octets exchanged between individual subscribers and specific remote IP addresses, or networks, during a packet data session. Data from the subscriber to the remote addresses, and data from the remote addresses to the subscriber are accounted for separately.
The remote addresses for which to collect RADIUS accounting data are configured in lists on a per-context basis. Individual subscribers are associated with particular address lists through the configuration or specification of an attribute in their locally configured or RADIUS server-based profiles. Once the lists and subscriber profiles are configured, accounting data collection can be enabled on the system.
Remote address-based RADIUS accounting is implemented in the system according to the specifications described in TIA/EIA/IS-835-B, CDMA2000 Wireless IP Network Standard, October 2002 and 3GPP2 X.S0011-005-D.
The Remote address-based RADIUS Accounting is a licensed Cisco feature. A separate feature license may be required. Contact your Cisco account representative for detailed information on specific licensing requirements. 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.
