[Spce-user] LCR and billing

Thanks for the reply.  I get rate decks from my carriers that indicated
both rates and I can tell based on the outbound callerid which rate it
is billed at.  SPCE does not have the login built in for jurisdictional
rating like what I need.  I have since found several kamailio/ser based
options for getting this kind of rating/routing but all of the solutions
are enterprise grade with starting prices of around $10k (US).


We also found that Freeswitch has a module called mod_lcr that does
exactly what we need but we have not determined exactly how to
incorporate it into our infrastructure while still making using of
kamailio or ser as the proxy.  I have quite a bit of research and
testing to still complete before I land on my final solution.

 My understanding is that 'Interstate' is any call terminated on the
Line-Side of any CO (Central Office) and 'intrastate' is any call
terminated on the trunk-side or LATA of any CO. There is no way for you
to know when either happens, so in effect, there is no way that you can
tell which rate you will be billed. Only your carrier will know and they
cannot predict when either.


 I use the highest of the two rates for that npa-nxx in the carriers'
billing profile.

I am just digging into the interface right now.  I have been working
with Kamailio and Siremis previous to loading SPCE.  I have searched a
little bit in the archives but am unable to find information about the
billing and LCR modules.


In the US we have interstate and intrastate rates for outbound calling.
This means that each rate center for each carrier must have two rates.
I have figured out that I need to create two different billing profiles
per carrier to accomplish this, but I have not figured out how I can
make the system aware of whether a call is an interstate or intrastate
call.  Is there anywhere I can find more documentation?  Anyone else
have the same issues?

Thanks in advance!
