The Fifth-Generation (5G) networks, as the emerging next generation mobile networks, are adopting softwarization and virtualization technologies as the cornerstones for the network operators to gain significant competitive advantages by reducing both capital and operational expenditure, enabling agile and flexible service creation and deployment, a...
Conference Paper
The evolution from the current Fourth-Generation (4G) networks to the emerging Fifth-Generation (5G) technologies implies significant changes in the architecture and poses demanding requirements on network infrastructures. One of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) in 5G is to ensure a secure network with zero downtime. In this paper, we focus on...

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...
Media use cases for emergency services require mission-critical levels of reliability for the delivery of media-rich services, such as video streaming. With the upcoming deployment of the fifth generation (5G) networks, a wide variety of applications and services with heterogeneous performance requirements are expected to be supported, and any migr...
