Is there specific Network functions & features required for 5G slicing support ?


First of all, network slicing provides a complete end-to-end virtual network for a given source.

A Slice is a logical network based on Radio Access Network, Transport Network and Core Network, it is built as we decide to build it: per vertical, service, customer, technical characteristics, functional characteristics …

Regarding network functions required for 5G slicing support :

  • Mandatory 5G Core network functions are AMF/SMF/UPF/AUSF/UDM/NRF.
  • The dedicated Network Slice Selection Function (NSSF) is used for slice selection, with operator policies, when several slices are used.

Regarding specific features for use cases requirements using a specific slice type:

  • For the use case URLLC, some features in the RAN and Core could be activated.
  • For IoT related use cases some features on the energy saving or specific communication for short message are used.
