Study on ETSUN
Abstract of document: TR 23.726 contains the output of the FS_ETSUN study (SID in SP-170743). The objective of this Technical Report is to study enhancements of 5GS architecture that has been defined in Rel-15 about the topology of SMF and UPF, and: 1. investigate mechanisms to enable the 3GPP system to support deployments where a SMF is not able / allowed to control UPF(s) throughout the same PLMN. 2. Study whether it is needed to enhance the capability of 5GS architecture for a UPF to be controlled by multiple SMF's (and many UPF's to be controlled by many SMFs) and, if yes, define such enhancements. The document can be found at http://www.3gpp.org/ftp/Specs/archive/23_series/23.726 Changes since last presentation to TSG SA: Completion of solutions, evaluations and generation of conclusions. Outstanding Issues: None. Contentious Issues: None.
