4.1  Introductionp. 8

Within the 5GC, the UPF offers services to the NEF, AF, SMF, NWDAF, DCCF, MFAF, TSCTSF and TSN AF via the Nupf service based interface (see TS 23.501, TS 23.502, TS 23.288 and TS 23.548).
Figure 4.1-1 provides the reference model (in service based interface representation and in reference point representation), with focus on the UPF.
Reproduction of 3GPP TS 29.564, Fig. 4.1-1: Reference model - UPF
The UPF supports the following functionalities which are provided via Service Based Interface:
  • Subscription to notifications of events exposed by the UPF;
  • Notification about UPF events; and
  • Translation of (NATed) Public UE IP address and port to (5GC) Private UE IP address.
