The Service Communication Proxy (SCP) is one of the most important elements of the 3GPP Service-Based Architecture (SBA) for 5G Core networks. The SCP is functionality similar to the Diameter Routing Agent (DRA) in 4G, functioning as a central control point in the signaling network core.
The SCP performs multiple key functions, simplifying core network routing topology & offloading the Network Repository Function (NRF) from service discovery, thus enabling greater 5G core network geo-distributed scalability. Key functions include:
For two decades, NetNumber has been a leader in fixed and mobile signaling, routing and security. Key 5G SCP capabilities include:
Key 5G SCP benefits include:
