Abstract

This paper presents an architecture to gather nontraditional metrics from 5G multi-tenant infrastructure using information about the network topology to take smart decisions on where to optimal placement VNFs that are used to provide services to network slices. The metrics considered are spatial metrics, where information about the shape and size of the network topology is taken into consideration. The architecture has been prototypical validated showing how optimal decisions are taken in an eMBB high-dense scenario, with topologies up to 65538 mobile users geographically concentrated on the same location. Our prototype is able to deal with the calculation of such spatial metrics over the 5G multi-tenant network with 65538 mobile users within 20 seconds, which make it viable at operational phase.
