Mavenir’s 5G Core is a Services Based Architecture (SBA), as defined by 3GPP and comprises of multiple Network Functions (NF), each with one or more service instances.  Communication between these service instances is required as well as within the NF itself. Also important to consider the communication in a distributed system architecture built to provide performance, fault tolerance, logging, and monitoring. In a Micro Services Architecture, there is a need for both synchronous and asynchronous communication.

Synchronous Communication

When the client sends a request and waits for a response from the service, where the thread is blocked until a response is received. In the case of a PDU Session Establishment, there are multiple operations performed in sequence between the same instance of AMF and SMF. Synchronous REST is used to exchange messages between these two instances. There are two ways to implement Synchronous communication, 

  • Client-Side Load Balancing
  • Server-Side Load Balancing

Both these approaches rely on a common framework for Service Registry, Health Check and Discovery, the differentiator is in whether the load balancing is done at the client-side or server-side.

Asynchronous Communication

When the client sends a request and does not wait for a response, where the thread is not blocked. Particularly important in case of configuration changes, where the sender publishes the configuration data and doesn’t wait, as applying the configuration will be a lengthy process. Also useful in cases of logging, monitoring, data transfer and analytics scenarios, where the there are multiple receivers of the same data.

In the synchronous communication, the consumer service needs to wait for a response from the producer service, and the producer service can only respond when it is sure that the data is safely stored or the request has been successfully processed. While this makes sense in case of service to service communication, such remote procedure calls can be avoided for data movement such as raw feeds or events or alarms or for communications where there are a group of recipients. This is where Publish/Subscribe queuing comes to the rescue. The NF service publishing the data into such a pub/sub queue and can proceed with its other tasks as soon as the data has made it safely onto a queue; it’s an inherent characteristic of the queue to ensure that the data is persisted and will eventually make it to the interested recipients.
