Abstract

Fifth generation(5G) provides one of the cornerstone features in networking, network slicing enables multiplexing virtualised logical networks over the same infrastructure for multiple business services. This research work provides the design and implementation of a novel E2E network slice management framework capable of managing the deployment E2E network slices across the 5G/Pre-6G infrastructure. The contribution has been validated for Industry 4.0 use cases where both horizontal and vertical slicing have been validated. This framework has been designed, prototyped, and empirically validate over a multi-tenant 5G/Pre-6G network infrastructure using the requirements of an Industry 4.0 use case: a production pipeline. The provisioning of a network slice in more than 8096 nodes has been carried out in less than half a second which demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed framework.
