Postpaid billing systems in most cases are using offline charging methods to rate the calls. Since latency is an accepted property, the throughput can be lower than the capacity required to process peak-hour traffic in a real-time manner. In this paper we will give an efficient mathematical model to calculate the processing power while taking the maximum queue size and maximum record age constraints into consideration.
