The shift from 4G to 5G has resulted in an architectural overhaul of the network, requiring network operators to rethink how they manage the data coming, going, and moving through the network.
To do this, network engineers have developed Unified Data Management (UDM). The technology is the equivalent of the 4G networks’ home subscriber server (HSS). UDM communicates with different network layers and functions to share user data across the network, creating a platform through which different parts of the network can draw from one, centralized data source.
This eBook covers the following topics:
- What is a UDM?
- Top 3 recommendations for selecting a UDM
- UDM and the shift from 4G to 5G
