To manage the expected high volume of control signaling introduced by MTC, we identified the main control events that generate signaling messages in the network. Then, we proposed a decentralized core network architecture optimized for the identified control events.
The control functions can utilize a distributed cloud (embedded in the 5G core network) to manage the enormous amount of control signaling by handling this signaling locally, i.e., close to the end user.
