Evolved Packet Core(EPC)

Evolved Packet Core (EPC) is an innovation which depends on GSM/EDGE and UMTS/HSPA technologies, can increase the capacity and speed using a different radio interface together with core network improvements. EPC refers to a core network architecture that aggregates access networks including LTE, 3G or 2G.

The virtual EPC(vEPC) is a complete LTE packet core solution based on network functions virtualization (NFV) technology. The vEPC can shorten the new service time to market, build an open ecosystem, and stimulate service innovation.

IPLOOK's Virtualized EPC
Cost-effective and Flexible deployment models
IPLOOK’s vEPC(Virtual Evolved Packet Core) provides a fully integrated, flexible, high performance, highly-scalable and cost-effective LTE mobility platform. Our vEPC is enabling MME, HSS, SGW, PGW and PCRF core network functions on any network.
IPLOOK vEPC is implemented as distinct Linux applications, maximising deployment flexibility. The vEPC doesn’t need to run on a purpose-built hardware and instead are virtualized on the bare metal of a standalone COTS server. This COTS server could be located remotely, in an enterprise, or could be deployed in a Data Center, or in the Cloud. It can also be deployed in a Docker Container, contributing to a more comprehensive NFV solution. The vEPC(Virtualized Evolved Packet Core) product can decrease the cost of OPEX and CAPEX.
IPLOOK provides a solution that combines 3GPP network functions from EPC and 5GC architectures into a common cloud native software platform that supports 5G Stand-Alone (SA) and Non-Standalone (NSA), 4G, 3G and 2G accesses technologies.

Compact EPC
Compact EPC
IPLOOK's compact EPC also called "IKEPC500 series", it combines MME, SGW, PGW, HSS, PCRF, IMS and DRA network elements in one X86 COTS platform what are 100% 3GPP compliant, and each of them can support all standard interfaces defined by 3GPP.

The IKEPC500 series consists of IKEPC 510 and IKEPC 520, using a unified EMS (Element Management System) to reduce OPEX.

The IKEPC500 series can also be deployed in a centralized cloud or at the network edge, allowing a broad range of deployment scenarios.

Mobility Management Entity(MME)
Mobility Management Entity(MME)
Mobility Management Entity(MME) is a key component of the standards-defined Evolved Pack Core (EPC) for LTE. It provides mobility session management for the LTE network and supports subscriber authentication, roaming and handovers to other networks.

HSS/HLR
HSS/HLR
A Home Subscriber Server(HSS) / Home Subscriber Register(HLR) serves as the primary database repository of subscriber information within a LTE/EPC or IMS network core. By centralising all the subscriber information in a single place it allows the signalling to be separated from policy providing a stream lined, high performing network.

SGW(Serving Gateway)
The SGW node handles the user data traffic, but isn' t responsible for the signaling data used. It transports IP data from UE's to the LTE Core Network. The SGW also routes incoming and outgoing IP packets for better system collaboration and serves as an anchor for the UE when it moves from one eNodeB to another.

PGW (PDN Gateway)
PGW is the network node that connects the EPC to external IP networks. What the PGW does is that it routes packets to and from external IP networks. Beyond that, it also allocates an IP address to all UEs and enforces different policies regarding IP user traffic such as packet filtering.

Policy and Charging Rules Function(PCRF)
Policy and Charging Rules Function(PCRF)
Policy and Charging Rules Function (PCRF), is the part of the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) that supports service data flow detection, policy enforcement and flow-based charging. It offers a comprehensive solution that enables a new generation service provider to offer multiple use cases that allow them to better control their services and align their revenue with their resources.
