5G Service Communications Proxy (SCP) Datasheet
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
• Message routing, load balancing & distribution
• Traffic prioritization & overload handling
• 5G Service Delegated Discovery
• Optional message manipulation & transformation
NetNumber’s SCP solution is built on NetNumber’s all new TITAN.IUM Cloud-Native InterGENerational TM platform providing “deploy anywhere” flexibility & secure management.
