3GPP have introduced new network functions and corresponding interfaces to lay the foundation for identifier association in 5G networks. Utimaco´s 5G ID Associator solution supports network element vendors and operators in achieving the new 3GPP standards.
To comply with 3GPP's standards, UTIMACO provides an integrated solution that includes both the Identifier Caching Function (ICF) and the Identifier Query Function (IQF) to support theidentifier association in 5G networks. ll relevant internal (LI_XQR) and handover interfaces (LI_HIQR, LI_XER) are supported by UTIMACO's 5G ID Associator solution.
As a result, this integrated and coordinated solution provides excellent interoperability and ensures that the interface performance meets all operational requirements.
