5G Core adopts the natural C/U separation architecture at the beginning of design. The 5GC defined by 3GPP is based on SBA, and the user plane is designed as an independent UPF network function, and the control plane is further subdivided into various network functions. One or more UPF Network Functions can be deployed as required. The deployment location is planned based on service traffic. The UPF can be deployed in a centralized manner or distributed on the edge. While reducing transmission pressure, the CUPS solution can meet the requirements for large bandwidth and low latency in the 5G era.
