When a node or component is implemented using service based architecture, it mean functionality of that node can be access as a service. Service of a node/component is retrieved through REST interface. Capacity of a node can be shared among different users of that service.
5G core network architecture shows various nodes, interfaces and services. There are few nodes such as AUSF, AMF and SMF used to create a service using the service based interface. However, there are few other components such as gNB and UPF, which are not used to create a service but used as a mandatory component of a service.

Service based Interfaces - Nausf, Namf, Nsmf, Naf, Nudm
Non-service based interfaces - N1, N2, N3, N4 and N6

I was going through deployment options 4A and 7, in which LTE eNodeB interacts with NGCN for control plane and user plane.
I am thinking the scenarios that when an operator would require particular option 7 in which eNodeB control and user plane both ends interface towards NGCN ? If this is the case then S1-AP and NG-AP both protocols will have to implement at next generation core network.
Is my understanding of option 7 is correct ?
