A more flexible and agile 5G core with Network Repository Function

Oracle Communications Cloud Native Core, Network Repository Function (NRF) works as a centralized repository for all the 5G network functions (NFs) in the operator’s network. The NRF allows 5G NFs to register and discover each other via a standards-based API. Oracle Communications NRF is a critical component required to implement the new service-based architecture (SBA) in the 5G core.
