NetCore 5G SA
In deploying a 5G SA mobile network core to fully take advantage of 5G’s enhanced mobile broadband data rates and ultra-reliable and low latency communication capabilities, a completely new set of network functions with a new set of signaling and user data carrying interfaces are required as specified by the international standards bodies. The 4G EPC’s MME network function is replaced by the AMF (Access and Mobility management Function) with some of its functions handled by the SMF (Session Management Function) and the AUSF (Authentication Server Function). The AMF handles the UE registration and mobility management while the SMF handles the PDU session management and the AUSF handles the UE authentication part based on authentication vectors from Unified Data Management (which stores the UE subscription data and user-context. The 4G SGW and PGW have been divided into the SMF and UPF (User Plane Function). The SMF handles the UE IP address assignment and UPF selection while the UPF acts as the PDU session anchor, taking on the packet routing, QoS enforcement and charging functionality formally provided by the PGW. The 4G HSS functions have been divided into the UDM (Unified Data Management) and the AUSF.
While many vendors deliver these network functions as individual components, NetNumber’s NetCore 5G SA delivers the 5G network core as an integrated package accessible via a comprehensive API allowing ease of deployment and operation, giving operators and systems integrators a sophisticated method for customization to support unique use cases.
NetCore 5G NSA
The deployment of a 5G NSA network supports the installation of 5G NR (New Radio) equipment without requiring a forklift upgrade of an existing 4G Evolved Packet Core, allowing organizations to provide scaled up access with data rates up to 450Mbps to end users with 5G capable devices while not interrupting network access for the installed base of 4G users.
NetCore LTE is 4G Evolved Packet Core (EPC) mobile network core software capable of providing high-speed data download services up to 150Mbps. This standards-based EPC including integrated MME, SGW, PGW, HSS mobile network core functions and web-based management interface has full Quality of Service (QoS) control and is interoperable with any eNodeB 3GPP S1 interface. NetNumber’s NetCore LTE exposes a feature rich API enabling customers and system integrators to custom build solutions dependent on particular use cases or markets. Specific functions have been included within the API to give access to voice, data and messaging, enabling real-time event notifications and subscriber activity as well as historical usage data.
NetCore is multi-technology 2G/3G mobile network core software capable of providing high-speed voice, messaging and data services. Within a local core, there is the ability to perform call routing via the integrated MSC, SGSN, GGSN, HLR and VLR network functions with web browser accessible management interface. This standards-based software is compatible with Node B 3GPP Release 9 luh interfaces.
