In order to meet the traffic demand from diverse next generation wireless network applications and exponentially increasing mobile subscriptions, various 5G network architectures are proposed by leveraging Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Network Function Virtualization (NFV) technologies. Network slicing will be one of the 5G technologies that would support next-generation wireless applications over a shared network infrastructure. However, improper network slicing may lead to either over-provisioning or under-utilization of the underlying network infrastructure resources, especially the 5G core network. Over-provisioning of data plane components such as Serving Gateway (SGW) and Packet Data Network Gateway (PGW) can lead to higher CAPEX and OPEX to mobile operators. In this paper, we propose a novel auto-scaling approach called Bit rate Aware Auto Scaling (BAAS) that maintains a precise UE bit rate requirement in the network slices without over-provisioning of data plane resources.
