SLEE service that uses Sentinel Charge

The following sections present a SLEE-centric architectural overview of a SLEE service that uses Sentinel Charge. Sentinel Charge provides the Sentinel mediation layer for use by SLEE services (see the diagram below).

The service consists of:

  • Custom front-end SBB, which:

    • receives events from the front-end network element

    • controls the session with the front-end network element.

  • Sentinel Charge SBB, which:

    • receives charging requests from the custom front-end SBB

    • hosts POJO features and mappers and has SLEE child relations to SBB features

    • encapsulates the Sentinel mediation layer, which:

      • provides charging methods such as SCUR and IEC

      • provides promotions.

    • runs feature execution scripts, features and mappers

  • One or more OCS Driver SBBs, which:

    • integrate Sentinel core (the front end) with a particular type of OCS

    • have a Diameter Ro interface to the mediation layer, and map Diameter Ro to and from the charging protocol used by the OCS

    • are shared by all services.

Important The resource adaptors and profiles used in Sentinel charge are the same as Sentinel services.
