Support for Non-Public Networks (NPNs) is a valuable addition to 5G in 3GPP Release 16. This white paper surveys and identifies services and capabilities inherent in public mobile networks that are not currently specified in detail by 3GPP for NPNs. Many of these services and capabilities relate to:
- Providing service continuity outside the NPNs footprint, such as roaming.
- Interworking with other public and NPNs, such as robocalling protection for voice calls.
This white paper identifies enhancements that may be developed for NPNs to provide similar services and capabilities to those available in public networks.
