Study on network management of virtualized networks was conducted in Rel-13 utilizing the outcome from ETSI ISG NFV,

and the conclusions have been captured in TR 32.842.

The use cases and requirements for network management involving virtualized networks, the potential impacts on the existing 3GPP Management reference models, and the management procedures have been identified.

features for mobile networks that include virtualized network functions:

Enhancements for the Existing Architecture • Feasibility Study on Control and User Plane Separation of EPC

Feasibility Study on Control and User Plane Separation of EPC nodes (FS_CUPS)

Although not part of the next generation system study, it is assumed to share the motivation with it on coping with the data traffic challenges by separation of control and user plane functionalities.

Feasibility Study on Enhancements of Dedicated Core Networks selection

mechanism (eDecor)

This study aims to enhance the DECOR feature, which enables a PLMN to have multiple dedicated core networks to separately serve devices and/or customers with very different characteristics, such as machine type devices, MVNO, data usage, etc. Similar to the feature above, DECOR might be considered to bring some commonality with the next generation system by enabling something

comparable to network slicing. Ref. 3GPP SP-150518, SP-150519

Study on Architecture for Next Generation System

Study on Architecture for Next Generation System • A new study item, to design a system

A new study item, to design a system architecture for the next generation mobile networks, was agreed at an SA2 meeting in Nov 2015.

The architecture should be developed with the following non-exhaustive list of operational efficiency and optimization characteristics:

1. Ability to handle the rapid growth in mobile data traffic/device numbers in a

scalable manner.

2. Allow independent evolution of core and radio networks.

3. Support techniques (e.g. Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networking) to reduce total cost of ownership, improve operational efficiency, energy efficiency, and simplicity in and flexibility for offering new services.

Tentative agreements as of Sept 2015 on the timeline for the next generation system are:

Before IMT-2020 submission, there will be 3 releases.

Each release will be roughly 15 months long.

Release 15 intends to provide an initial next generation system.

The study and the standardization of “Next Generation System Architecture” is expected to be aligned with above timeline, but the concrete schedule is yet to be confirmed.

3GPP is in the initial phase of Rel-14, which is important as the beginning of the work related to next generation system.

The study on the new service requirements “SMARTER” is being conducted, and the study on the next generation

system architecture is about to start.

Joining 3GPP at this stage is meaningful to keep up with the work related to the next generation system from its beginning.
