Following the successful acquisitions of Openwave Mobility and the Telco Solutions Convergence Creators business unit from Atos/Siemens, Enea has integrated and updated its cloud-native systems to give operators a best of breed option for management of data in 5G networks.
The Enea 5G Data Management portfolio gives operators a unified view of their data and allows all applications for network and business operations to securely store and access data through open APIs. The suite includes 5G core network capabilities spanning the common or network data layer (CDL/NDL), the user plane and the control plane. It includes functions such as Unified Data Management (UDM), Unified Data Repository (UDR), Authentications Server Function (AUSF), Policy Control Function (PCF), and Equipment Identity Register (EIR).
One of the key components in the 5G Data Management portfolio is Stratum, a Common Data Layer solution, which is already being used by several of the world’s largest mobile operators. By collapsing all system data silos into a single common data layer, Stratum allows all applications to draw from the same pool of data. This effectively ends the major frustration of vendor lock-in experienced in 3G and 4G networks, based on data being siloed in different network functions.
