Using the Control-User Plane Split (CUPS) feature, Open5GCore implements a large numbed of deployment scenarios for data path diversity:

The implemented functionality in the SMF and PGW-C, and its equivalent support from the UPFs and software switch components, enables the following scenarios:

  • Support for multiple APNs and dedicated bearers
  • Data path offloading for specific bearers (when connected to specific gNBs)
  • Congestion triggered, network only data paths change
  • Fast handover between Local Service Hosts (with and without IP address continuity)
