A Modular, Scalable, and Carrier-class 5G Core Network
Unicorn is a lightweight 5G Core Network suitable for commercial public networks, private enterprise
networks and emergency networks deployed by Public Safety agencies.
Unicorn includes all Core Network Functions (CNFs) - Access and Mobility Management Function (AMF),
Authentication Server/Function (AUSF), Network Slice Selection Function (NSSF), Unified Data Management (UDM),
Unified Data Repository (UDR), Session Management Function (SMF), Policy Control Function (PCF),
Network Repository Function (NRF), User Plane Function(UPF)
and Security Edge Protection Proxy (SEPP)– along with a Network Management System (NMS)
and a web-based Console to manage and operate the 5G core network.
This carrier-grade solution, with a scalable, cloud-native architecture,can be used to
deliver 5G services such as eMBB (enhanced Mobile Broadband), mMTC (massive Machine Type Communications)
and URLLC (Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communications).
The implementation of Unicorn is based on Rel.16 specifications from 3GPP.
Supports 5G specific features and capabilities:
- Network Slicing
- Service and Session Continuity Modes
- 5G User Plane features such as Ethernet PDU sessions
- N1-based Non-3GPP (WLAN) Access
- Inter-working and migration between EPS and 5GS
