5G Core

5G Core Network(5GC) holds a key role in realizing the full potential of 5G services. Without 5GC, fully-fledged NR services cannot be obtained. 5G NSA deployment leaning on traditional LTE network and EPC allows for a quick launch of 5G services, but also hinders the realization of 5G' s full potential.

Base on Service Based Architecture(SBA), in 5GC, a cloud native design is introduced to enable flexible scaling and upgrades.

Key Benefits:

  • Supports VoNR/VoLTE/CSFB
    Allow operators to meet a variety of voice application scenarios
  • Flexible Deployment
    Enable for centralized or distributed data centers
  • Virtualized, Cloud-Native Dual-Mode 5G Core
    Support NSA/SA Networking
  • Fully standards based, multivendor solution
    Supports end-to-end 5G Slicing
  • 3G/4G/5G Converged Core
    Enable smooth handover among 3G, 4G and 5G
  • Full Stack capabilites
    A complete core network portfolio, Simplify operators' network structure
  • High scalable
    Enable to deploy on Cloud Platform such as AWS and Azure
  • Enable more granular end-to-end management and control of traffic flows and applications

Comply to 3GPP R15/R16 Standards
A Service Based Architecture (SBA): AMF, SMF, PCF, UPF, UDM, AUSF, NSSF, NRF, NEF Full Functions

  • AMF: Access and Mobility Management Function
  • SMF: Session Management Function
  • PCF: Policy Control Function
  • UPF: User Plane Function
  • UDM: Unified Data Management
  • AUSF: Authentication Server Function
  • NSSF: Network Slice Selection Function
  • NRF: Network Repository Function
  • NEF: Network Exposure Function

The IoT with NR

  • VoNR

5GC NFV Architecture

  • Cloud Native
  • Docker

Separate the User Plane (UP) functions from the Control Plane (CP) functions, allowing independent scalability, evolution and flexible deployments e.g. centralized location or distributed (remote) location
