Converged Multi-Access and Core (COMAC)
Deliver next-generation services over both mobile and broadband networks to seamlessly support subscriber management and consistent service experience regardless of access technology. COMAC will programmatically craft diverse network slices, combining various access and core technologies to support a wide variety of use cases, deployment options and service offerings.
Optimized for 5G deployments, COMAC will leverage SDN and cloud principles to create both converged access and converged core capabilities as part of a holistic platform.
Converged Access: Manages traffic regardless of user’s access link
Built on disaggregated RAN, mobile core, and Broadband Network Gateway (BNG) components, COMAC’s architecture is a highly optimized stack that aggregates a unified access layer with an SDN control plane and P4 user plane each containing elements of the RAN CU, Mobile Core and BNG. COMAC will offer different implementation choices for 4G & 5G RAN as well as PON, WiFi, DOCSIS and fixed wireless broadband connectivity.
Converged Core: Enables user base to be managed as a whole
Unified subscriber management, blending Mobile MME, HSS and BNG-Authentication and billing functions into a common platform.
