Aggregated Resource Allocation for Network Slicing

  • Kerboeuf S.
  • Luu Q.

Abstract--- Network slicing has recently appeared as a key enabler for the future 5G network where Virtual Network Operator (VNO) creates various slices for Service Providers (SP) to accommodate customized services. As network slices are operated on a common network infrastructure owned by the Infrastructure Provider (InP), sharing the resources across a set of network slices is highly important for future deployment. In this paper, we analyze the business interaction between the different actors. Taken the InP perspective, we propose an optimization framework for resource allocation addressing multiple slices demand in terms of processing, storage and wireless capacity. The proposed solution is based on a linear programming (LP) problem formulation. We considered a practical use case of slices deployment over a mobile access network for two types of slices, one for the video streaming services, and one for the Internet of Things services. Simulation results demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed framework for network slice dimensioning.

© 1963-2012 IEEE. This article presents a packaged SiGe BiCMOS reflectometer for 0.01-26-GHz two-port vector network analyzers (VNAs). The reflectometer chip is composed of a resistive bridge coupler and two wideband heterodyne receivers for coherent magnitude and phase detection. In addition, a high-linearity receiver channel is designed to accommodate 20 ...

Protecting photonic quantum states using topology

  • Blanco-Redondo A.

The use of topology to protect quantum information is well-known to the condensed-matter community and, indeed, topological quantum computing is a bursting field of research and one of the competing avenues to demonstrate that quantum computers can complete certain problems that classical computers cannot. In photonics, however, we are only ...

  • Weldon M.

This paper takes a fresh look at the debate over the relationship between digital technology and productivity. The argument of economic historian Robert J. Gordon is that digital technology will not lead to increases in productivity such as we saw in the last century, based on his analysis of the ...
