The SD-Core™ project is a 4G/5G disaggregated mobile core optimized for public cloud deployment in concert with distributed edge clouds and is ideally suited for carrier and private enterprise 5G networks. It exposes standard 3GPP interfaces enabling use of SD-Core as a conventional mobile core.

SD-Core is an integral component of Aether, ONF’s 5G Connected Edge platform for private mobile connectivity and edge cloud services. It can be rapidly deployed pre-integrated with Aether, as a standalone 5G/4G mobile core, or as control and dataplane (UPF) components integrated into custom designed solutions. This range of versatility makes the open source SD-Core platform ideally suited for the broadest range of use cases and deployment scenarios.
