Unified Data Repository (UDR)
Unified Data Repository
Alepo’s 3GPP Release 16 compliant Unified Data Repository (UDR) is a converged database that stores and manages subscriber data, SIM identities, and network service configurations. The UDR is used by multiple network functions such as PCF, UDM, and NEF to store service-specific parameters to be provisioned in the network for devices to use the service (such as V2X).
What is UDR in 5G?
The Unified Data Repository or UDR is a centralized database that stores 5G subscription information, which is used by other network functions, in the following categories: subscription profile, policy data, application data, and. The 5G network can have multiple UDRs, each accommodating a different set or subset of data and catering to different NFs, or it can have a single UDR that serves all NFs such as NEF, UDM, and PCF.
What is the function of UDR?
5G UDR enables network functions to store and access subscription information. Consumer NFs can retrieve, create, modify, and delete data stored in the UDR. The Unified Data Repository also allows the NF service consumers to subscribe and unsubscribe to data change notifications.
5G Network Function: UDR
- Stores and manages SIM identities, common subscriber profile for 4G and 5G subscriptions, and policy data
- Notifies other NFs of changes in subscriber data
- Supports REST (real-time) or batch (bulk) SIM provisioning and subscriber data provisioning
- Stores and manages service parameters and application data for advanced use cases such as V2X, IoT, and others
Effective Data Management
Alepo’s 5G Unified Data Repository (UDR) includes an integrated portal that lets users configure network services and manage subscriptions and SIMs. The easy-to-use GUI displays subscription and service configuration information at a central location. To ensure subscriber privacy and security, SIM information is encrypted. Other features of Alepo’s 5G UDR include:
- Imports and manages SIM batches efficiently
- Allows service configurations for subscription and policy data
- Provides a proven scalable integration framework for API provisioning
- Enables viewing and managing subscription and policy data
High Performance With Reliability
Alepo UDR provides market-leading reliability and performance by utilizing a microservice-based architecture in compliance with 5G SBA. It uses REST-based APIs that adhere to open API 3.0 standards. Its intuitive GUI helps access and manage 4G and 5G service subscriptions and its parameters. Features include:
- Supports single- and multi-site deployment
- Built on highly scalable high-performing NoSQL data repository
- Offers flexible approach for data processing
- Boasts proven five-nines availability with local and geo-redundancy support
- Supports REST (real-time) and batch/bulk provisioning

To wisely capitalize on the monetization possibilities 5G brings, CSPs must focus on these top enablers: business models, partnerships, innovations, and network architectures.
Partnerships will provide endless revenue potential in 5G, enabling CSPs to cater to diverse sectors with use cases like AR/VR, smart cities, connected cars, and remote surgeries.
CSPs can launch advanced 5G charging use cases (slicing, PaaS, IaaS, SaaS, and more) with 5G NFs like Charging Function (CHF) and Policy Control Function (PCF).
The Compact Core solution supports several 5G enterprise and industrial use cases with its local, hybrid, public cloud, and 4G+5G combo deployment modes.
