Abstract: Agile service provisioning for services with strict service level agreement (SLA) requirement is a new paradigm for service providers and network operators. A new service requires resources from different parts of the network. It requires independent life cycle, isolation from other services, and independent management. Resource allocation as well as life cycle management of new services, which co-exist with already deployed services arises new challenges. Network slicing is proposed to support simultaneous independent services on a single network. A network slice is viewed as a logical end-to-end network that can be dynamically created, modified, and released. A network slice provides a service with specific SLA. In this talk, I will review the concept of slicing for the core network. Then, we propose an admission control model for the new services requested in a telecom operator with dynamic slices.
