Oracle Communications Online Mediation Controller provides network connectivity for Oracle Communications Billing and Revenue Management (BRM) and third-party online charging systems (OCSs).
Online Mediation Controller acts as the front end for OCSs, providing connectivity to the network and mediating network protocols, supporting the Diameter and RADIUS protocols, and enabling delivery of online charging services for sessions in the network.
When integrated with a third-party OCS, Online Mediation Controller interacts with the OCS through a standard Diameter-based Ro interface, mediating network protocols to Diameter Ro. When integrated with BRM, it interacts with BRM through a BRM Portal Communications Protocol (PCP) interface, mediating network protocols to PCP.
This basic administration course for Online Mediation Controller is a self-paced, offline course. The instructional material is provided as slides in PDF files.

You need to have administrative rights on the machine to be able to disable or reconfigure any local firewall or CPU-intensive background processes, if necessary. The virtual machine requires a laptop that fulfills the following specifications:
Operating System: Windows, Linux, OS X, or Solaris
CPU: Preferably a dual core, at least 2 GHz
RAM: At least 3GB, but 4 GB or more is preferred
Hard Drive: At least 15 GB free space
