Ericsson Cloud Unified Data Management and Policy

Cloud UDM and Policy product introduciton_big media

Evolve your subscription data management, policy control and network exposure solutions in 3G, 4G and 5G networks, making them more and more efficient and dynamically programmable to address new opportunities for service differentiation, network automation and assets monetization.The Ericsson Cloud Unified Data Management (UDM) and Policy portfolio offer solutions for Subscriber Data Management (SDM), Policy Management and Network Exposure towards telecommunication's operators and towards other segments as enterprises and verticals. Our offerings includes advanced solutions to support the evolution towards a 5G, built on cloud native design principles.The Cloud UDM and Policy solutions are structured in four areas:

  • Data management: to consolidate data from different network functions into a unified data storage.
  • Subscription & Identity management: to authenticate and authorize different types of devices to access connectivity services across different network domains.
  • Policy control: to enforce customer experience and network behaviors.
  • Network exposure: to expose network and subscription data as well as insights taken from them.
The combination of these four areas enables operators to optimize the customer's experience and the network resource’s utilization, enhancing their service offerings towards consumers and industry in the evolution to 5G.


The Cloud UDM and Policy solutions are:

  • Designed to optimize 3G/4G network performances, providing the flexibility, reliability, scalability and agility expected by our customers to meet their communication and data services needs.
  • Based on the Continuous Development and Delivery concept (aka. CI/CD) that simplifies the SW deployment process and evolve UDM and Policy SW releases more frequently, in a faster and more cost-efficient way.
  • Fully virtualized and ready to run in multivendor Cloud deployment environments, supporting key workflows to automate processes. New 5G Network Functions are all Cloud Native, offering a further step in terms of Cloud automation and efficiency.
  • Ready to address industrial needs like Massive IoT and 5G, supporting innovative solutions for Network Slicing and traffic optimization to enable Operators to really expand in IoT and evolve to 5G.
  • Offered together with our outstanding Systems Integration services portfolio, built on our vast experience and global presence deploying and managing end-to-end and multi-vendor networks. It covers from project planning to project execution and includes our state-of-art Data Migration services.
