Main components of our edge
- Authentication and Security: MME handles user authentication and security key management in a mobile network, ensuring secure connections.
- Mobility Handling: It manages mobility-related functions, such as tracking and paging of mobile devices as they move through the network.
- Bearer Management: MME is responsible for creating, modifying, and releasing bearers for user data traffic.
- Fault Tolerance: Redundancy and failover capabilities are often built-in to ensure network reliability.
- Data Forwarding: UPF handles the forwarding of user data packets, ensuring efficient routing and low-latency communication.
- Edge Computing: UPF can support edge computing capabilities, allowing the processing of data closer to the end-user for reduced latency.
- Scalability: UPF can scale horizontally to handle increased data traffic loads.
- Quality of Service (QoS): It supports QoS mechanisms to prioritize and manage different types of traffic, essential for services like video streaming and real-time communication.
- Control Plane Functions: SPGW-C manages control plane signaling for user data sessions.
- Session Management: It establishes and releases data sessions for mobile users, ensuring seamless connectivity.
- Policy Enforcement: SPGW-C enforces network policies and performs session-specific functions, such as IP address allocation.
- High Availability: Redundancy and high availability features are often included for network reliability.
- The HSS is the central database that contains information about all the network operator's subscribers.
- Subscriber related information held by the HSS includes user identification, security, location and subscription profile.
- It stores subscriber information (such as service profiles, authentication ciphering, subscription state, device details, user's physical location, and more), performs user authentication and authorization
