Network slicing is a primary Fifth-Generation (5G) mobile networking technology to create virtualised and softwarised logical networks for various vertical businesses with diverging Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Meanwhile, there is a clear gap in providing network slicing capabilities in 5G multi-tenant networks to enable guaranteed QoS in...

The Fifth Generation (5G) mobile networking coupled with Internet of Things (IoT) can provide innovative solutions for a wide range of uses cases. The flexibility of virtualized, softwarized and multi-tenant infrastructures and the high performance promised by 5G technology are key to cope with the deployment of the IoT use cases demanded by variou...

The diverging requirements from various vertical industries have driven the paradigm shift in the next‐generation (5G) mobile networks, where network slicing has emerged as a major paradigm for this purpose by sharing and isolating resources over the same 5G physical infrastructure. To truly fulfill the different quality‐of‐service (QoS) requiremen...

Provisioning of network slices with appropriate Quality of Experience (QoE) guarantees is one of the key enablers for 5G networks. However, it poses several challenges in the slice management that need to be addressed to achieve an efficient end-to-end (E2E) services delivery. These challenges, among others, include the estimation of QoE Key Perfor...
