Approaches to solving network slicing before 5G

alt text

Presented by IHS Markit and

Operators are drawn to the principle advantage of network slicing: use a single network to deploy multiple services, each on individual slices. The ultimate goal is end-to-end network slices applied to a mix of fixed, mobile, and fixed-wireless use cases. End-to-end slicing requires orchestration software to control multiple network domains, each with its own software layers and types of equipment. Implementing slicing today is complex, yet the eventual 5G slicing will have richer functions, more specifications, and more complexity. Operators must start today to be fully ready for 5G slicing. This webinar will explore the many challenges associated with deploying end-to-end network slicing including: how to guarantee the allocation of slices across a single network; how to automate the instantiation and decommissioning of a slice; and how to assure the SLAs on each slice. A panel of experts will present the latest approaches and innovations that will be valuable in helping operators and vendors in tackling the current challenges today and those of the 5G future.


Who Should Attend
Telecom operators and communications service providers worldwide, tier 1/2/3 operators, IT and network architects and operations management. Financial analysts and the media are also encouraged to attend.
