HPE Shared Data Environment


5G Service Based Architecture (SbA) demands new high performance, scalable databases, and distributed synchronized storage. The new 5G Shared Data Environment (SDE) integrated via service-based interfaces (SBIs) is becoming a critical requirement for implementation of cloud-native 5G Network Functions (NFs) and Service Functions (SFs) as lightweight high-performance microservices.
In this white paper, we describe an SDE architecture that not only allows for smooth migration from legacy networks and databases without compromising the true 5G high-performance SDE solution but also allows smooth interworking with 3G/4G HLR/HSS systems.
New 5G services will depend on the availability of high-performance SDE.
