This Deliverable presents the initial design of the overall SELFNET framework. SELFNET creates an autonomic network management framework to meet the requirements of advanced self-organizing network (SON) capabilities for the 5G
network infrastructure providing insights into the key technologies involved. In particular, a seamless integration of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and network intelligence is proposed. The deliverable specifies three use cases that are used to derive the system requirements, and to validate and demonstrate the capabilities of the SELFNET framework. The use cases
propose innovative proactive/reactive actions in self-healing, self-protection and selfoptimization of software-defined and virtualized 5G networks. Furthermore, it presents a detailed list of requirements for realizing each system component as well
as the use cases.
