Service Aware Orchestration for Dynamic Network Slicing in 5G Networks
In 5G networks, Network slicing enables the operator to provide customized networks by slicing one physical network into multiple, virtual, end-to-end networks, referred to network slices. Each network slice can be defined according to different requirements on functionality, performance and specific users. Based on the concept of network slicing, a single device connects to multiple network slices simultaneously, are described in order to indicate the necessity of multiple network slicing. It is also specified necessary functions in order to support how to select a proper network slice, how to manage the mobility of different session in a same device. Finally the service aware orchestration is proposed in terms of network slice creation, management and deletion.
