Flexible Data Plane

Bringing even more flexibility to the data paths

Deployment of customized UPFs with added functionality:

  • Data flows classification and filtering
  • Data traffic scheduling
  • Ultra-low delay/real-time processing
  • Multi-slice support in the same UPF
  • Hold and forward for deterministic networks
  • Store and forward for intermittent data paths

Creating ultra-flexible dynamic data paths for the connected subscribers based on:

  • The momentary service requirements
  • The device context: location, services
  • The network context: capacity, congestion state, etc.
