5G Core Network Functions

This post touches upon the 5G network functions (NFs) related to core network. Some of them look very similar to the corresponding functions in the previous generations’ core networks. This of course is not surprising, as the network always has to carry out some basic functions such as: communicate with the UE, store its subscription and credentials, allow access to external networks & services, provide security and manage the network access and mobility. However, we will also see some new functions, not present before, which are needed to enable the new network paradigms like slicing and service-based networking.

Energy efficiency for 5G networks – how to make it?

One of the key requirements for 5G is the reduction of network energy consumption. Example techniques to assure high energy efficiency in mobile networks include: the use of lean carrier, dynamic beamforming, efficient energy saving schemes for Small Cells, virtualization of the network and utilization of dense deployments.   Energy efficiency for 5G networks As far […]

5G-mobile vs. IP-networks techniques: Slicing

Within this series of posts, I want to review the 5G concepts from the IP-networks perspective and explore the available techniques on the market which allow translating the presented concepts into real infrastructures. This post is related to a concept known as slicing. Recently, there are many documents describing 5G principles and architectures. One of […]
