Amantya’s 5G UPF
Amantya’s standards-compliant 5G Standalone (SA) UPF is a cloud-native and highly optimized solution with powerful and intelligent packet processing capabilities, enabling mobility within and between Radio Access Technologies (RATs). It streamlines the critical function of processing subscriber traffic between RAN (Radio Access Network) and the DN (Data Network). A service-based and flexible solution with configurable and scalable hardware offloading capabilities and automation for edge deployments, Amantya’s UPF is optimized to meet the higher performance requirements of 5G networks.
It supports the Quality of Service (QoS) and Quality of Experience (QoE) requirements of 5G, including low latency, dense connectivity, high bandwidth, and multi-tenancy, ensuring higher throughput and improved latency.
Amantya’s 5G UPF Features
Amantya’s UPF enables an easy to configure, future-ready, and adaptable data path. Some key features of the SA 5G UPF are:
Packet Detection Rule (PDR)
The classification of traffic (PDUs) arriving at the UPF is done by Packet Detection Rules (PDR)
Forwarding Action Rule (FAR)
FAR determines what action needs to be applied to traffic identified by PDRs i.e., forwarding, dropping or buffering.
QoS Enforcement Rules (QER)
QER contain information related to QoS enforcement of traffic identified by PDR(s).
Buffering Action Rules (BAR)
BAR controls the buffering behavior of all FARs of the Packet Forwarding Control Protocol (PFCP) session.
Usage Reporting Rule (URR)
URR determines the accountability of the traffic oriented by PDRs and the reporting process of specific measurements.
Amantya’s UPF uses Service Data Flow (SDF) to detect and filter applications.
CUPS on gRPC
CUPS allows operators to separate the EPC into a control plane that can be located in a centralized place. It also enables the user plane to be placed closer to the application it supports.
Integration with any data path
Inter-working between the PFCP Agent and a data path.
ULCL Support & Branching
This functionality aims at diverting Uplink traffic, based on filter rules provided by SMF, towards Data Network (DN).

Connects the gNodeB (Radio Access Network) to the UPF. The interface transports user data from the RAN to the UPF for processing.
Connects the UPF to the SMS and caters to several key session management procedures.
Plays a role in the network, providing connectivity between the User Plane Function (UPF) and any other external (or internal) networks or service platforms, such as the Internet, the public cloud, or private clouds.
UPF to UPF interface for branching point and uplink classifier.
