Slicing the Mobile Packet Core

The Evolved Packet Core (EPC), the core system of the LTE network, was designed as a “flat architecture” in order to handle the payload (the data traffic) efficiently from a performance and cost perspective. The user plane (the data) was also separated from the control plane (the signalling) to make scaling independent. Thanks to this functional split, mobile Read more about Slicing the Mobile Packet Core[…]
