Based on the Cloud Native architecture of the 3GPP 5G core network, it complies with the standard 3GPP UDC (User Data Convergence), adopts the Microservice design concept, draws on the rich experience of serving the global operators for over 20 years, and constructs a highly reliable and secure full-converged data management platform oriented to 5G and cloudification.
- UDC as a Design Concept of the Converged Data Management Platform
The Converged Data Management concept proposed by the telecom industry is user data convergence (UDC) to introduce a centralized user data management: all the data of the same user that is distributed in different network elements shall be integrated in one device; the data contents include terminal data, access data, service data, and policy data, etc..
- Centralized Storing Data of the Converged Data Management Platform
ZTE's converged data management platform stores all the user data, avoids data redundancy on different NFs to conserve resources, and simplifies data configuration and management, to ensure data consistency, reliability, and safety. It facilitates integration with current systems to reduce OPEX and accelerate service innovation.
- Rich Applications of the Converged Data Management Platform
ZTE's converged data management platform supports the BE (back end) cloud unified data layer and rich FE (front-end) applications including converged subscriber data management, converged policy management and converged signaling controller.
