Evolved Packet Core (EPC)

The Evolved Packet Core (EPC) provides the new core network architecture for high-throughput, multi-service access. The all IP network, defined by 3GPP for LTE and other access technologies, features a simplified architecture for reduced latency and a clear separation of Control-Plane signaling from User-Plane traffic processing.
The Azcom EPC implements a flexible, highly scalable architecture that provides a cost-effective solution for a wide variety of deployment scenarios. This low footprint platform can be easily scaled for higher system capacity and is ideal for defense, public safety and mission critical systems.

Azcom EPC Functional Modules

  • Mobility Management Entity (MME): Control-Plane component. Manages session states, authentication, paging and mobility.
  • Home Subscriber Server (HSS): Central database containing subscriber details (includes authentication data).
  • Serving Gateway (S-GW): User-Plane component. Forwards and routes packets to and from the eNodeB and the P-GW. Serves as the local mobility anchor for inter-eNodeB handover.
  • Packet Gateway (P-GW): User-Plane component. EPC interface to external IP networks.

Key Features

  • Supports key EPC nodes (MME, S-GW, P-GW & HSS)
  • 3GPP Release 9 compliant with clearly defined roadmap for Rel. 10 and beyond.
  • Roaming architecture for supporting home routed traffic and local breakout
  • Standard 3GPP interfaces for integration with other 3GPP technologies and PCRF
  • Policy enforcement functionality integrated in P-GW
  • End-to-end QoS deployment and coordination with underlying transport layer

  • End-to-end security (integrity protection and ciphering)
  • Support for multiple PDN connections
  • Support for Packet Filtering and Deep Packet Inspection
  • OAM interface for EPC nodes configuration
  • Path management for quick recovery and service restoration
  • Easy integration with Azcom Technology carrier grade LTE Small Cell
