Built for public safety. Optimized to serve mission critical activities, the CPG supports Quality of Service (QoS) functionality, enabling the ability to prioritize data traffic and ensuring the that network is serving the most critical need at the moment.
EPS bearer and session management. EPS bearer uniquely identifies traffic flows that receive a common QoS treatment between a user equipment and a PDN GW. CPG is responsible for setting up each bearer, maintain bearer to session and APN connections.
APN Management. Enables separation handling of traffic for different APNs (i.e. ISPs and corporate network). Each APN is handled as a Virtual Private Network.
QoS policy execution. Enables operators to offer QoS based services and do differentiated billing as well as efficient management of network resources. The CPG supports both dynamic QoS policies over Gx as well as statically pre-configured QoS within the CPG.
Idle mode support. IDLE mode support saves radio resources and user equipment energy consumption.
The Converged Packet Gateway (CPG) is a key component of the standards-defined Evolved PacketCore (EPC).
