The fifth generation of mobile communications is anticipated to open up innovation opportunities for new industries such as vertical markets. [...] Key Method Then we give a brief overview on the SDN architecture proposed by the ONF and show that it provides tools to support slicing. We argue that although such architecture paves the way for network slicing implementation, it lacks some essential capabilities that can be supplied by NFV. Hence, we analyze a proposal from ETSI to incorporate the capabilities of…Expand
