Nokia about “Dynamic end-to-end network slicing for 5G”

Principal Innovator at Nokia, Dr. Seppo Yrjölä, one of our valuable speakers at 5G innovation Summit, kindly sheared with us Nokia’s latest article about “Dynamic end-to-end network slicing for 5G”.

Dr. Seppo Yrjölä is a passionate innovator with a background in research, strategy and business. He’s been with Nokia for 28 years. He incubates and steers opportunities externally with customers, partners and governments with the purpose of driving growth by innovating holistically from technology to business models.

Previously as head of wireless technology for the Networks division at Nokia, his role required him to look beyond the product roadmap and identify what new trends, technologies and tools were on the horizon, and determine and validate how those future opportunities fit into the Nokia pipeline.

His current research is focused in the area of future radios with cognitive network business opportunities and potential disruptions as an important aspect to scout. He holds a M.Sc. degree in electrical engineering and a Doctoral degree in telecommunications from the University of Oulu. Seppo has been awarded over €10 million in competitive research funding as the lead investigator, authored more than 50 peer-reviewed publications, and holds several patents in the radio domain.

Dynamic end-to-end network slicing for 5G

Next-generation 5G networks will enable a fully mobile and connected society. The proliferation of wearable devices and wireless connected objects will?pave the way to a wide variety of new use cases and business models. But?a fundamental rethinking of the mobile network is needed to realize the full potential 5G offers to support a variety of very diverse and extreme requirements for latency, throughput, capacity, and availability. The network architecture must shift from the current network of entities architecture to?a network of capabilities architecture. And network models must shift from?the current network for connectivity model to a network for services model.

Network slicing offers an effective way to meet the requirements of all use cases using a common network infrastructure. This paper outlines a dynamic network slicing concept that enables design, deployment, customization, and optimization of different network slices on a common infrastructure. The concept leverages Nokia products and solutions and Nokia Bell Labs innovations in cloud mobile access and core, software-de ned networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), containerization, end-to-end orchestration, network applications, and analytics.

With dynamic network slicing, operators can establish different deployments, architectural flavors, and performance levels for each use case or service group. And they can run all network implementations simultaneously in parallel.

The Nokia dynamic network slicing concept enables dynamic end-to-end slicing of 5G networks. It is extremely important to consider that all parts of the network — from radio access, to transport and core — must be included to achieve the desired levels of service. With this concept, operators could create different deployments and architectural flavors for each business model, which could open the door to new human possibilities of technology, enabled by new services, use cases, and business models.
