Session Management Function (SMF) has a part of SGW and PGW from LTE-EPC. It is mainly resposinble for session establishment, modification and release. It allocates IP address to UE and configures the UPF to meet promised QoS to UE and also does traffic steering.

If I compare SMFs of the 5G network against the SGWs of LTE network then what would be criteria of SMF selection in AMF ?
In the LTE network, MME selects SGW for an UE based on the location of eNodeB so that it can minimize frequent change of SGW due to mobility.

In LTE network, UE registers with network using attach procedure. MME supports couple of states such as EMM-REGISTERED, EMM-DEREGISTERED to maintain the status of UE registration. I want to know that how network registration is being implemented at 5G core ? Is it as same as LTE network EMM states ?
