To address very diverse requirements, 5G network architectures must shift from the current network of entities to a network of capabilities. Network models must shift from the current network for connectivity to a network for services model.
Dynamic network slicing offers an effective way to enable this shift and partition a single common 5G infrastructure into multiple logical end-to-end networks. It provides the service agility needed to address diverse:
With dynamic network slicing, operators can establish different deployments, architectural flavors, and performance levels for each use case or service group. And they can run all network implementations simultaneously in parallel.
This paper outlines the dynamic network slicing concept. It explains how the concept can be used to create different network slices on the same 5G network by leveraging:
