Network Slicing Architecture and Operations
5G_207x | Expert-Led Live | 5G Core | 3
Course Duration: 1 day
Network slicing is one of key components that provide logical virtual network slices to support diversified services like mobile broadband, massive IoT, and ultra-reliable low latency services by leveraging the technology of 5G, SDN and NFV. This course describes Network slicing across 5G Core, RAN and Transport networks, its operation and deployment. The course provides an insight into operational aspects for Network Slicing and how slice information is specified and used in various network procedures.
Intended Audience
A medium-level technical course for personnel involved in product management, marketing, planning, design, engineering, and operations
After completing this course, the student will be able to:
■ List examples of 5G usage scenarios and their unique needs
■ Define how slicing is applied to the 5G RAN, 5G Core and the transport network
■ Illustrate the relationship between network slices, data networks and QoS
■ Describe how slice information is used during NF selection and PDU Session setup procedures
■ Explain the Life-cycle Management of Network slice
