Abstract

Media use cases for emergency services require mission-critical levels of reliability for the delivery of media-rich services such as video streaming. With the upcoming deployment of the Fifth Generation (5G) networks, a wide variety of applications and services with heterogeneous performance requirements are expected to be supported, and any migration of mission-critical services to 5G networks presents significant challenges in the Quality of Service (QoS), for emergency service operators. This paper presents a novel SliceNet framework, based on advanced and customisable network slicing to address some of the highlighted challenges in migrating eHealth telemedicine services to 5G networks. An overview of the framework outlines the technical approaches in beyond the-state-of-the-art network slicing. Subsequently, the paper emphasises the design and prototyping of a media-centric eHealth use case, focusing on a set of innovative enablers towards achieving end-to-end QoS-aware network slicing capabilities, required by this demanding use case. Experimental results empirically validate the prototyped enablers and demonstrate the applicability of the proposed framework in such media-rich use cases.
