5G Data Management

Enea Subscription Manager

Cloud-Native Management of Subscriber Data and Authentication in 5G Networks

Enea’s Subscription Manager is a cloud-native solution for subscriber data handling in 5G networks. It includes the Unified Data Management (UDM) function for managing subscriber-related network procedures like registration, authorization and mobility management, and the Authentication Server Function (AUSF) for UE authentication.

Operators can adopt Enea’s Subscription Manager and interwork with their legacy HSS without changes.

The Subscription Manager is designed in compliance with 3GPP’s cloud-native service-based architecture. It can be deployed in a multi-vendor combination, in private, public, or hybrid cloud environments, to avoid vendor lock-in. It includes the UDM and the AUSF as separate containers; they may be deployed together or separately depending on the operator’s network configuration.

Containerized architecture allows Enea’s Subscription Manager to seamlessly scale horizontally to meet very high network demands, maintain high availability with self-healing, and manage overload. It is uniquely able to provide multiple solutions to support the interworking of 4G and 5G networks for both 5G SA (standalone) and 5G NSA (non-standalone) deployment options.
