Abstract: The traditional network is configured based on the prescribed network requirements. Sometimes the resources of the network are underutilized and at sometimes there may resource starvation because of the static configuration of the network. As against traditional network, which is operated either as dedicated network or as an overlay network, network services can be operated over a shared network infrastructure. Thus maximum resource utilization under minimal infrastructure cost can be achieved. The on-demand network requirement can be configured dynamically using network slice. The backbone of the rapidly evolving 5G technology is network slice and service networks can be benefited from it. Different network function for multiple tenants can be enabled customized using network slice with each slice operating independently. Network slice can be offered as a service to meet various requirements from the network slice tenant with different granularities. The Software Defined Networking and Network Function Virtualization are the enabling technologies for network slice. This paper discusses various network slicing use case requirements. And also Open Flow based software defined network environment is simulated to validate the discussions. Experimental results show that the efficiency of the service network is maximized with improved reliability of service.
