Subscription management and user authentication to IMS and LTE network domains and a key enabler for critical and massive IoT. Part of the Ericsson UDC solution.
HSS-FE provides control and intelligence for the user subscription traffic within the EPC and IMS networks. In the data layered architecture, the data store (CUDB) and HSS-FE association manage subscriber profiles, subscriber identities, location and activity.
HSS-FE is the evolution of the HSS/SLF product in the evolution to Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and Cloud.
Home Subscriber Server (HSS) manages subscription-related information in real time, for multi-access and multi-domain offerings in an all-IP environment.
Based on 3GPP specifications, HSS supports the network control layer with subscription and session handling, providing capabilities for:
The SW of HSS-FE has been specially designed to allow full HW and SW decoupling to be used in cloud environments.
HSS is used in all of our IMS solutions and provides user profile management, authentication and authorization and location management functions in the Evolved Packet Core (EPC) and for non-3GPP access (WiFi) to EPC networks.
The Ericsson Unified Data Management solutions help network operators to address the IoT challenges on connectivity, security, adaptability and analytics to implement a profitable IoT strategy. Check out this new brochure.
Network slices with cloud-optimized applications, using cloud native design principles, advanced automation and resource orchestration, are key capabilities for the 5G service delivery. Cloud-optimized network applications are developed for deployment in distributed cloud environments.
