180226 NGMN E2EArchFramework v2.0.0

5G End-to-End Architecture Framework v2.0

This document delineates the requirements in terms of entities and functions that characterise the capabilities of an E2E (end-to-end) framework. Architectural perspectives and considerations associated with the service categories – eMBB, mIoT, URLLC – envisioned for 5G (Fifth Generation) underscore the delineation of the E2E framework requirements. These requirements are intended as guidance in the development of inter-operable and market enabling specifications for a 5G ecosystem. This version resolves the outstanding Security and Identity management issues from the first published version, adds new references associated with those parts, and makes no changes to the other sections.
