Title: " An adaptive network slicing for LTE Radio Access Networks"


5G mobile systems are envisioned to satisfy the service requirements from a diversity of vertical industries. Network Slicing, which is a promising technology to be integrated into 5G systems, enables multiple virtual  networks, with functionalities specific to a service or customer, to be created on top of a physical substrate. The consolidation of multiple technologies, such as SDN and NFV, provides all the elasticity, programmability and modularity necessary to manage network slices. In this talk, I will present a Slice Optimizer component as an extension to LTE's evolved NodeB to realize the concept of network slicing on LTE Radio Access Networks. Two scenarios will be commented: a) with different slices for different classes of traffic; b) a multi-tenant network, where two network operators share the same network infrastructure.
