Advice of Charge
Advice of Charge (AOC) is a powerful tool that allows subscribers to get notifications of data usage charges, suspension of access to the network or individual resources, new offers and promotions as well as to manage their accounts.

AOC is a standalone product for communicating information to subscribers in an interactive manner across a variety of channels (links, interactive pages); it is designed to support subscriber services associated with PCC, HTTP and internet as part of a PCRF solution. In addition, the product helps strengthen subscriber loyalty through full transparency of charges.

It can be relied on to ensure compliance with statutory requirements regarding disclosure of charge-related information to consumers.
