Abstract

Network slicing is one of the core features of the 5G network to meet the requirements of various network services, namely, enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), ultra Reliable Low Latency Communications (uRLLC), and massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC) by building an isolated virtual network of resources typically in a Network Function Virtualization (NFV) environment. We have built a 3GPP compliant 5G Core (5GC) testbed and enabled network slicing on it to provide eMBB, uRLLC, and mMTC services to end users. In this demonstration, we showcase the capabilities of our zero-touch framework of 5GC network slicing management and orchestration in an NFV environment with the network functions of 5GC and the applications on eMBB and uRLLC slice services. We believe that this work will guide Mobile Network Operator (MNO)s in building zero-touch autonomous network slices in 5GC along with their smart management and orchestration in closed loop automation. © 2021 IFIP.
