5G Network Slicing - Management and Orchestration Aspects

Report Summary:

This report sponsored by Hewlett Packard Enterprise and Intel evaluates the impact 5G Service Based Architecture (SBA) on Network Slicing. New kinds of Management and Network Orchestration (MANO) are required to ensure that guaranteed End to End (E2E) Quality of Service (QoS) ‘on Demand’ can be delivered efficiently, automatically and at low cost with Network Slicing.

Communications Service providers (CSPs) need vendors who can assist their digital transformation to help them evolve to this new dynamic ‘5G Ready’ environment. New processes and highly automated network and service management are essential to address the complex, highly dynamic nature of 5G SBA Network Slice MANO.

Within 3-5 years, CSPs should begin to reap the rewards from this investment and achieve their goal of offering differentiated services with Network Slicing at price points that will open up major new and profitable markets. To do this they need vendors with proven capabilities to address the service orchestration challenges they face today.
