Broadband evolution: CUPS and 5G convergence

alt text

Presented by IHS Markit and

5G brings a new approach to delivering seamless convergence between wireline and wireless access networks that simplifies network operations while greatly enhancing customer experience. Key enablers to fixed/wireless convergence include control plane/user plane separation (CUPS) in both the mobile core and broadband edge network functions, in addition to well-defined and standardized extensions that enable subscriber and service coordination in the resulting access-agnostic core. This webinar will explore the opportunities and benefits of unified multi-access broadband as an enabler for a universal core, as well as challenges and next steps ahead.

Who Should Attend
Fixed, mobile and converged service providers including cable/MSOs. Network architects, network engineering, broadband services product/service managers, IP service/network operations as well as financial analysts and the media are encouraged to attend.

Key Topics for Discussion

  • Key trends driving fixed/mobile convergence
  • Introduction to CUPS in the mobile core and broadband edge
  • Summary of related 3GPP, IETF and BBF standards activities, including CUPS and protocol extensions for converged access
  • Opportunities and benefits associated with an access-agnostic core, as well as challenges and next steps ahead
  • Answers to audience questions during live Q&A
