5G Service Engine

Dual-mode engine for faster 5G service deployment and unified 4G and 5G operation

5G Service Engine helps rollout 4G and 5G, traffic management, and value-added user plane services in the 5G core

5G-Service Engine (SE) provides the architecture for in-line services (IPV4 & IPV6) traffic that handles user generated traffic at scale, from both 4G & 5G networks. Providing the framework for classifying, analyzing and mediating content flows with best in class, low latency functions, enabling the service provide to measure & improve the experience, optimize the data flows and action any unwanted content.

The 5G-SE is in the data path for TCP, UDP/QUIC and provides for service continuity between 4G/5G, feeding data analytics, capacity planning, and monetization opportunities.

Despite strong growth in 5G uptake, 4G subscriptions are also still on the rise as network operators maximise their available assets and work through the multiple connectivity options.

5G-SE eliminates vendor lock-in by providing best-of-breed traffic management, MSP, and optimization services that are fully interoperable with any UPF and PGW vendor, as well as with standards-based network functions and 4G Control Plane elements.

5G-SE complements Enea virtual load balancer (vLB) cloud-native, software-based, and distributing IP traffic across multiple application servers based on configurable load, availability, and policy. It provides carrier-grade horizontal scalability to address MNOs and ISPs’ network services demands to scale up 5G environments.

5G-SE helps operators to:

Immediately deploy services through seamless and transparent data plane insertion in the 5G N6 reference point and supports simultaneous enablement of services in the 4G EPC and 5GC through one single platform.

Support multiple access technologies (2G, 3G, 4G, 5G) and simultaneous integration with both the 4G EPC and the 5G Core, so they no longer need to maintain a services platform for each packet core.

Experience a seamless 4G to 5G SA packet core transition. 5IAF assists MNOs in the 5G journey where they may have different suppliers for 4G and 5G packet cores.

Offer full interoperability with the 4G and 5G Control Plane functions, ensuring service continuity throughout the transition.

Execute a phased transition strategy for existing Enea 4G Traffic Management services. 5G-SE can be inserted through incremental extensions to the existing 4G platform, interoperating with legacy Enea 4G components.

Enea 5G-SE offers:


  • Enea’s technology allows us to effectively manage all our streaming data, including encrypted video, resulting in a very positive impact on subscriber QoE
  • TELUS is proud to partner with Enea and give our customers a better experience while watching videos
