5G network slicing: an end-to-end framework for slice lifecycle automation
30 June 2020 | Research
Vendors must clearly articulate how their solutions will enable communications service providers (CSPs) to achieve the end-to-end vision of network slicing. Their solutions should address three broad areas: slice design and order workflow automation with self-service management capabilities, intent based end-to-end slice orchestration and slice monitoring and assurance with closed-loop self-healing.
This report provides:
- a framework of the network slicing lifecycle automation market
- an overview of the developing software market opportunities
- recommendations and a detailed explanation of these market areas.
This report will be followed by dedicated reports on each of these solution areas, which will provide detailed explanations of the challenges and recommendations.
