The User Plane Function (UPF) is a fundamental component of a 3GPP 5G core infrastructure system architecture. The UPF represents the data plane evolution of a Control and User Plane Separation (CUPS) strategy, first introduced as an extension to existing Evolved Packet Cores (EPCs) by the 3GPP in their Release 14 specifications The ASTRI 5G Core UPF delivers high network throughput and can leverage the Dynamic Device Personalization (DDP) capability on Intel® Ethernet Controller 800 Series to achieve fine-grain load balancing and take advantage of certain offload capabilities 5G-UPF: Applicable Platform(s) VPC-SI.

5G UPF Packet Core. This showcases how a standards-based 5G SA UPF enables a highly scalable, flexible, and reliable system for deployments in the core, at the central office or on premise for both B2C and B2B services. 1.Introduction. The requirementsfor the 5G Standalone (SA) wireless network have been standardizedbyhese3GPP. T standards define the Cloud Network Functions / Virtualized. 5G is ushering a rich set of opportunities to operators with new applications, services and enhancements. Distributed architectures with user plane functions (UPF) moving closer to the edge and supporting use cases with very low latency are an integral part of the 5G evolution. To make the best of UPFs in 5G, application awareness is key The 5G Radio Network: gNB, AMF, UPF, SMF functions in 5G NR 0 If you are familiar with LTE then it will be easy for you to understand gNB, AMF, UPF, SMF functions in 5G. In fact at the high level LTE eNB and 5g gNB have same functionalities 5G NR UPF Functions. UPF stands for User plane function. Following are the functions of 5G NR UPF node. • Anchor point for Intra-/Inter-RAT mobility (when applicable). • External PDU Session point of interconnect to Data Network. • Packet routing & forwarding • Packet inspection • User Plane part of policy rule enforcement, e.g. Gating, Redirection, Traffic steering. • Lawful. The User Plane Function (UPF) has a key role in an integrated MEC deployment in a 5G network. UPFs can be seen as a distributed and configurable data plane from the MEC system perspective. The control of that data plane, i.e. the traffic rules configuration, now follows the NEF -PCF -SMF route
We showed in Part 2 of this series of articles that after an UE (e.g., 5G smartphone) finishes its Registration Procedures with a 5G System (5GS), the Session Management Function (SMF) in the 5GS'.. In this paper, we present the first realization of the new 5G user plane function (UPF) component that supports SDN and provides optimized transport for reducing latency as required in 5G networks We show the faster way forward with our 5G Fusion Core https://www.metaswitch.com/fusion-cor As part of an ongoing partnership, Samsung and Intel have collaborated on performance and latency optimizations of Samsungs 5G Cloud Native UPF, which resulted in a significant performance breakthrough of data throughput measuring 305 Gbps 4.3 UPF Restoration Procedures 4.3.1 General When a UPF fails, all its Session contexts and PFCP associations affected by the failure become invalid and may be deleted. 4.3.2 Restoration Procedure for PSA UPF Restart If F-TEID allocation is performed in the UPF, the UPF shall ensure that previously used F-TEID values are no
5G Standalone Access Registration UPF.pdf 5G NodeB 5GC gNB SMF UPF UPF Interactions: 5G Standalone Access Registration 1:PFCP Session Modification Request N4 N4 Session Endpoint Identifier, PDU Session Uplink TEID The Packet Forwarding Control Protocol (PFCP) is used between the SMF control plane and the UPF data plane. The Session Modification is signaled to the data plane. 2:Downlink DataUPF. At Openwave, we treat the 5G UPF as an open framework that acts as the only user plane data processing element. However, as opposed to a monolithic element, as suggested by 3GPP, it leverages service decomposition to create an extensible framework through self-contained stateless functions. This architecture for the UPF, as an end-to-end data plane framework, is based upon the following key. The UPF is managed by the Session Management Function (SMF) component of the 5G Core. The SMF defines the rules for the movement packets through the UPF based on defined business rules. As such, one of the roles of the UPF is to parse the session or user information from incoming packets and match it to rules defined by the SMF Say, you have 5G-DU that leverage FPGA for O-RAN, FEC acceleration; 5G-UPF that leverage FPGA for UPF acceleration; or applications that leverage FPGA for ML/DL & Video encode/decode acceleration . Hence, you want to make your Edge platform expose FPGA to applications. FPGA being programmable, you like to program the FPGA with bitstream based. Making a rapid beeline toward the cloud, emerging 5G mobile architectures are demanding a high degree of dynamic, isolated end-to-end virtualization (aka network slicing). More than ever, we therefore need to seriously consider the use of virtualized x86 platforms, to support core network switching and routing requirements. Specifically, this means the 5G Core User Plane Function (UPF), which.
After the network evolves to 5G SA, due to the introduction of such new technologies as network integration, distributed DC, CUPS, inter-UPF transmission and MEC, the 5G user plane deployment also presents characteristics of diversity, flexibility and componentization. The user plane network functions evolve from the traditional centralized deployment to hierarchical discrete deployment, and.
