Subscription Management

Ericsson Subscription Management solutions handle the access authorization to the network services for multiple user types, ensuring service continuity across different access methods. They support both legacy (2G/3G/4G) products and container-based 5G network functions, providing:

  • Subscriber data management
  • Mobility management
  • User security and authentication (SIM and non-SIM based)
  • Access authorization
  • Service authorization


PRODUCTS

Home Location Register Front End (HRL-FE)
HLR-FE provides subscription data management, user authentication, and number portability to 2G/3G network domains as part of Ericsson User Data Consolidation (UDC).

Home Subscriber Server Front End (HSS-FE)
HSS-FE, also part of Ericsson UDC, fulfils the central role of user data management in the 4G domain; in other words, Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and IP Multimedia Core Network Subsystem (IMS). Ericsson HSS-FE holds vital user information such as user identification, location, profile information and security information.

Equipment Identity Register Front End (EIR-FE)
The EIR-FE, also part of Ericsson UDC, authorizes access to mobile devices in 2G/3G/4G domains, preventing calls from stolen, unauthorized, or defective devices.

IPworks
IPWorks, part of Ericsson UDC, manages the IT-Infrastructure, packet core, IMS, and Wi-Fi related solutions.

Cloud Core Subscription Manager (CCSM)
CCSM is the commercial realization of the 5G 3GPP Network Functions UDM/ARPF, AUSF and 5G EIR. It helps operators manage multiple user types (mIoT, eMBB, cMTC) through any access-type anchored to a 5G Core network as specified by 3GPP. CCSM uses subscription data (including authentication data) that is stored in CCDM and accessed via 3GPP Ndr.

OUR KEY BENEFITS

Smooth evolution

Smooth evolution and co-existence of 2G/3G/4G/5G systems with interworking assurance:

  • Interworking functions are in place to assure service continuity and enduser experience when moving across different accesses and network domains
  • Support for subscriber migration scenarios

 

High availability

High availability and overload protection mechanisms:

  • The most advanced mechanisms for resilience and redundancy, both on internal and network levels.
  • Cooperative load regulation between business engine node/functions and subscriber data repository

Deployment flexibility

Deployment flexibility for network efficiency and operational cost reductions:

  • Virtualized or physical data deployment options for products in UDC, supporting both 2G/3G/4G and 5G NSA front-ends.
  • Dual Mode 4G/5G support in CCSM (UDM/AUSF/HSS/EIR) in one VNF with common O&M, common infrastructure, and common orchestration. It includes a common authentication vector generation function for 4G and 5G.
