Deutsche Telekom is working with Mavenir and MobiledgeX for a reference design to deploy cloud-native 5G consumer aircraft operate (UPF) to assist multi-access edge computing (MEC) functions.
A service-based, cloud-native UPF is on the core of the reference design which has been validated and is totally cloud-native, abstracted away from underlying cloud structure, infrastructure provider and working proprietor.
Mavenir defined that for the reason that introduction of cellular packet information in 3G, all information visitors, no matter supply, vacation spot and requesting software, has been tunnelled again to a restricted variety of fastened (packet gateway) anchor factors contained in the cellular networks. This, it stated, is more and more inefficient, non-performant, and susceptible to bottlenecks. In contrast, 5G core requirements allow dynamic placement of the anchor level (the UPF) based mostly on the appliance and community’s wants.
