This may include some statistical treatment of the measurement data, followed by combination of this data with tariff information to produce charges. It is necessary to consider at what level in the network such processing is carried out, and how the data is stored and transmitted to appropriate points in the network. It is conceivable that some charging schemes might be based on complex statistical functions of connection cell rates, for example to reflect burstiness over short timescales. For such schemes it might be necessary to carry out a significant amount of processing on a real-time basis.
The Tariffing Agent passes traffic contract and tariff options to the user domain, and receives back the user's choice of tariff and traffic contract. The Purchasing Agent mediates between the human user, the user's application, and the network. In the simplest case the Purchasing Agent might be just a Java applet that is downloaded from the Tariffing Agent and displays to the user the available choices of traffic contract parameters and tariff parameters. More sophisticated Purchasing Agents might provide a higher-level display to the user (for example, showing estimated costs of connections for different tariff choices), and might be linked to the user's ATM application in order to provide intelligent assistance with choice of contract.
