Aggregated Resource Provisioning for Network Slices

Abstract : Network slicing has recently appeared as a key enabler for the future 5G networks where Mobile Network Operators (MNO) create various slices for Service Providers (SP) to accommodate customized services. As network slices are operated on a common network infrastructure owned by some Infrastructure Provider (InP), sharing the resources across a set of network slices is highly important for future deployment. In this paper, taking the InP perspective, we propose an optimization framework for slice resource provisioning addressing multiple slice demands in terms of computing, storage, and wireless capacity. We assume that the aggregated resource requirements of the various Service Function Chains to be deployed within a slice may be represented by a graph of slice resource demands. Infrastructure nodes and links have then to be provisioned so as to satisfy these resource demands. A Mixed Integer Linear Programming formulation is considered to address this problem. A realistic use case of slices deployment over a mobile access network is then considered. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed framework for network slice provisioning.
