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.
Comply to 3GPP R15/R16 Standards
A Service Based Architecture (SBA): AMF, SMF, PCF, UPF, UDM, AUSF, NSSF, NRF, NEF Full Functions
The IoT with NR
5GC NFV Architecture
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
