  • Recent Developments in Service Function Chaining (SFC) and Network Slicing in Backhaul and Metro Networks in Support of 5G

    In this invited paper we examine the role of Service Function Chaining (SFC) and Network Slicing in providing support for emerging 5G services as data is carried across backhaul and metro networks. The way in which backhaul and metro networks are managed and operated affects the ability of those networks to support a wide range of services that will be enabled by 5G connectivity. Those services will place exacting demands on the bandwidth, delay bounds, and jitter delivered to users, but may vary significantly over relatively short time periods. SFC and Network Slicing offer opportunities for software-driven coordination of network resources to marshal them so as to best deliver the network behaviour that will support the demands of the services. We present the latest proposals towards standardisation of SFC and Network Slicing in the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and discuss how these concepts are applied in optical networks through the Metro-Haul project.

  • 5G network slicing: A multi-tenancy scenario

    The 5G mobile network is expected to meet increasing user demands. The increase in number of users is accompanied by varying user requirements in different network scenarios. Hence the 5G mobile network should be as flexible as possible. Network slicing offers a promising solution to the flexibility need of the 5G mobile network. Network slicing is the logical partitioning of a physical network into independent virtual mobile networks which enables the multi-tenancy paradigm. However, realising independent virtual mobile networks via network slicing in multi-tenancy requires efficient resource allocation. This is important to ensure that multi-tenancy enhances network capacity. In this paper, we investigate the resource allocation problem of achieving maximum capacity with the transmit power, allocated bandwidth as part of the constraints in a sliced multi-tenant network. Through our simulations, we demonstrate (i) how the number of users in a slice affects the capacity of an MVNO, (ii) how the transmit power improves the capacity of the MVNO and also how the number of slices affects the capacity.

  • OAI-based End-to-End Network Slicing

    Network slicing is a key technology of 5G network to realize flexible customization for various services based on Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Network. In this paper, we discuss end-to-end network slicing in terms of non-standalone 5G standard, where eMBB and uRLLC scenarios are supported using 4G core network. Firstly, we present eMBB and uRLLC slices at the user plane respectively. To reduce end-to-end delay in the uRLLC slice, Mobile Edge Computing is introduced. Secondly, both eMBB and uRLLC slices share the same control plane at core network. Finally, we establish a testbed based on the open source software of OAI. Experimental results demonstrate that our proposed scheme can increase the downlink rate for eMBB slice and reduce the delay for uRLLC slice.

  • Zero-Touch Network Slicing Through Multi-Domain Transport Networks

    The concept of network slicing is gaining a lot of interest and being under notable discussion within SDOs such as 3GPP, NGMN, ETSI and 5G Americas. A Network Slice is end-to-end service composed by a set of network functions, and the resources to run these network functions, forming a complete instantiated logical network, which meets certain network characteristics. In this paper, we provide an overview of the design and development of a network slice manager component inside the SONATA Service Platform. The proposed component is able to align with ETSI NFV and 3GPP models.

  • DEMO: SDN-based network slicing in C-RAN

    Network slicing is considered a key technology for the upcoming 5G system, enabling operators to efficiently support multiple services with heterogeneous requirements, over a common shared infrastructure. In this demo, we present a prototype for managing network slices in the Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN), which is considered the reference network architecture for 5G. Our prototype deals with the spectrum slicing problematic and aims at efficiently sharing the bandwidth resources among different slices, while considering their requirements. The prototype makes use of the Open Air Interface (OAI) platform and a specific Software Defined Network (SDN) controller, known as FlexRAN. By using real smart-phones, we run experiments on stage to validate the feasibility of the prototype in configuring multiple slices on-demand, driven by the input of a northbound application.

  • Hierarchical Radio Resource Allocation for Network Slicing in Fog Radio Access Networks

    Network slicing in fog radio access networks (F-RANs) is recognized as a cost- efficient solution to support future diverse use cases. However, with the number of user equipments (UEs) fast increasing, the centralized resource allocation architecture for network slicing can put heavy burdens on the global radio resource manager (GRRM), and meanwhile slice customization is not easy to achieve. To overcome the two issues, a hierarchical radio resource allocation architecture is proposed in this paper, where the GRRM is responsible for allocating subchannels to local radio resource managers (LRRMs) in slices, which then allocate the assigned resources to their UEs. Under this architecture, a hierarchical resource allocation problem is formulated, and the problem is further modeled as a Stakelberg game with the GRRM as the leader and LRRMs as followers, considering the hierarchy between the GRRM and LRRMs. Due to the NP-hardness of the followers' problems, a process based on exhaustive search is first proposed to achieve the Stackelberg equilibrium (SE). Nevertheless, when the network scale is large, achieving SE within limited decision making time is impractical for game players. Facing this challenge, the GRRM and LRRMs are seen as bounded rational players, and low complexity algorithms are developed to help them achieve local optimal solutions that lead to a weak version of SE. Simulation results show that there exists a tradeoff between the performance of slices, and the low complexity algorithms achieve close performance to that of exhaustive search and outperform other baselines significantly.

  • JOX: An event-driven orchestrator for 5G network slicing

    Network slicing is expected to be the main pillar around which virtualization technologies together with SDN control and NFV, will provide on-demand network and cloud infrastructures and facilitate rapid service deployment. In this paper we present JOX, an event-driven orchestrator for the virtu- alized network, operating on top of the Juju management system, that inherently supports network slicing. JOX is a python-based generic network slicing orchestrator, with a plugins architecture that is able to support different segments of a modern mobile edge network. We present a concrete prototype implementation of JOX for LTE, with experimental results considering footprint analysis, performance metrics, and implementation experience for slicing and orchestrating of an operational LTE network.

  • 5G Testbed Development for Network Slicing Evaluation

    5G networks supposed to be a solution for providing the ubiquity connectivity of wireless devices. Network slicing is one of the major enablers of 5G networks. Network slice is a logical network with specific network and security capabilities. To provide a tool for a research study of network slicing, the 5G testbed is being developed. The testbed utilizes the LTE architecture and adds 5G elements to LTE testbed by OpenAirInterface. UE and AN are simulated with help of OAI Simulator. Core Network presented by openair-cn. To enable slice selection function, a UE contains NSSAI. eNB extracts NSSAI which is used for slice selection and relays NSSAI to AMF/MME for further processing. Network slices presented as Docker containers. The 5G testbed allows to study performance issues and attacks on network slices from different angles e.g. protocol, slice selection function in AN, processing NSSAI in core networks.

  • OVNES: Demonstrating 5G network slicing overbooking on real deployments

    The network slicing paradigm provides the necessary means to allow vertical segments to seamlessly share the same network infrastructure, while delivering the expected service level agreements (SLAs) to their own customers. However, the concurrent access at shared resources and the huge disparity among different verticals' service requirements opens up new technical challenges that must be addressed. With this demonstration, we showcase the benefits that centralized orchestration operations, such as slice brokerage and resources allocation, can bring to tackle these issues. Our testbed, namely OVNES, implements the network slicing paradigm on real network equipments and discloses the novel concept of 5G Network Slice Broker as an entity in charge of mediating between vertical network slice requests and physical network resources availability.

  • An architecture and implementation of automatic network slicing for microservices

    The concept of "Network slicing" enables us to provide an optimized logical infrastructure for each service. We construct multiple isolated logical infrastructures, slices, on a single physical infrastructure. Each slice accesses appropriate virtual network functions, a logical topology, isolated logical com-putational resources, and isolated logical network resources for the service to be provided. However, designing a service-specific slice is generally complicated. In general, service providers and slice providers are different. Therefore, service providers must design a slice optimized for their service and request slice construction from slice providers; slice providers need to understand a service to design a slice. This creates excessive time and cost overheads. We target automatic network slicing for services from the slice providers' point of view. In this paper, we assume that service providers develop their services from microservices. We show an architecture for automatic network slicing for microservices and implement it. We also discuss the issues revealed by our implementation efforts. This knowledge can be used to realize more general automatic network slicing for other service development methods. Automatic network slicing will provide slices more quickly and cheaply.
