Service provisioning is the process of configuring a service for customers. It usually associates with telecom industry and cloud infrastructure. The examples of service provisioning are shown as follows.
  • When a customer submits a request to use a mobile network, system initializes and manages the customer’s services, such as establishing control channels (Huang et al., 2016) and making update scheme for service provisioning due to user mobility (Huang and Guo, 2017).

  • To activate a low-earth-orbit satellite-based service for secure big data storage, the telecom company has to design and construct the infrastructure for customers in advance (Huang et al., 2018).

  • Data centers or edge nodes launch a Service Function Chainingenabled machine to meet the customer’s subscription, including the desired software and hardware resources, and the access authority in the agreed period (Huang...
