A Future-Proof Architecture for Management and Orchestration of Multi-Domain NextGen Networks

The novel network slicing paradigm represents an effective turning point to operate future wireless networks. Available networking and computational resources may be shared across different (instantiations of) services tailored onto specific vertical …

Resource Sharing Efficiency in Network Slicing

The economic sustainability of future mobile networks will largely depend on the strong specialization of its offered services. Network operators will need to provide added value to their tenants, by moving from the traditional one-size-fits-all …

CARES: Computation-Aware Scheduling in Virtualized Radio Access Networks

In a virtualized radio access network (RAN), baseband processing is performed by software running in cloud-computing platforms. However, current protocol stacks were not designed to run in this kind of environment, the high variability on the …

Identifying 5G System Enhancements: Enabling Technologies for Multi-Service Networks

The fifth generation (5G) of mobile and wireless communications networks aims at addressing a diverse set of use cases, services, and applications with a particular focus on enabling new business cases via network slicing. The development of 5G has …

The path towards resource elasticity for 5G network architecture

Vertical markets and industries are addressing a large diversity of heterogeneous services, use cases, and applications in 5G. It is currently common understanding that for networks to be able to satisfy those needs, a flexible, adaptable, and …
