Network Data Analytics Function (NWDAF) provides automated, AI/ML-based analytics for closed-loop, zero-touch network automation and an improved customer experience. Offers standard-based (3GPP) use cases, such as 5G network slice assurance as well as proprietary use cases and interfaces.
The NWDAF is deployed as an NF within the 5G Packet Core, fully containerized and fully integrated with the NRF, enabling communications with other NFs in the Core with analytics provided through open APIs. Provides all the use cases defined in Rel. 15, 16, and 17.
Collects and correlates proprietary vendor event feeds and exports data analytics through non-3GPP APIs that enable use cases like:
Supports use cases defined in Rel. 15, 16 and 17 and proprietary use cases
Collects data from the RAN to the core and applies advanced AI capabilities
Offers operators multiple deployment options from a centralized solution to a lightweight front end
