− Enable each NF to interact with other − Support local breakout and may have
NF directly via service based interface parallel nodes serving the same APN
− Benefit: Agility & Open − Benefit: Best User Experience

− Dedicated UPF (user plane) with various − with a common AN - CN interface for
control plane 3GPP, non-3GPP, Fix access

Takeaways
Cloud is essential first step towards 5G core. It is mast for STC to continue transformation of
Basics infrastructure to ETS NFV compliant.

Value Enable All Access, Enable All Services

Technology SBA, Distribute ,Slicing, Converge

Architecture Go Frist, Cloud Native Make Software Architecture Ready


Evolution CUPS Make Network Architecture Ready

Transformation into IMT2020 envisioned telecom will be long undertaking. Here, identifying key
Partner long-term partner is critical.
