UPCON – User Plane CONgestion Management
As mobile networks become increasingly congested, the 3GPP have introduced techniques for RAN congestion management which are designed to reduce the impact of user plane congestion on the user’s service experience. UPCON introduces congestion mitigation techniques such as traffic prioritization, traffic reduction and limitation of traffic. UPCON utilizes additional network elements such as the RCAF (RAN Congestion Awareness Function) to support this.
