The fifth generation (5G) of mobile networks will support several new use cases, like the Internet of Things (IoT), massive Machine Type Communication (mMTC) and Ultra-Reliable and Low Latency Communication (URLLC) as well as significant improvements of the conventional Mobile Broadband (MBB) use case. End-to-end network slicing is a key-feature of 5G since it allows to share and at the same time isolate resources between several different use cases as well as between tenants by providing logica...

The digitization of industrial automation processes calls for flexible, adaptable, and scalable communication solutions in order to enable the vision of a truly "cyber-physical system". In this context, IEEE Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), developed by the TSN task group of the IEEE 802.1 working group, receives particular interest as it defines mechanisms for the time-sensitive (i.e., deterministic) transmission of data over Ethernet networks. In order to enable novel use cases and further imp...

In this paper, we define a flexible, adaptable, and programmable architecture for 5G mobile networks, taking into consideration the requirements, KPIs, and the current gaps in the literature, based on three design fundamentals: (i) split of user and control plane, (ii) service-based architecture within the core network (in line with recent industry and standard consensus), and (iii) fully flexible support of E2E slicing via per-domain and cross-domain optimisation, devising inter-slice control a...

The novel network slicing paradigm represents an effective turning point to operate future wireless networks. Available networking and computational resources may be shared across different (instantiations of) services tailored onto specific vertical needs, envisioned as the main infrastructure tenants. While such customization enables meeting advanced key performance indicators (KPIs) introduced by upcoming 5G networks, advanced multi-tenancy approaches help to abate the cost of deploying and o...

The fifth-generation mobile telecommunication network is expected to support multi-access edge computing (MEC), which intends to distribute computation tasks and services from the central cloud to the edge clouds. Toward ultra-responsive, ultra-reliable, and ultra-low-latency MEC services, the current mobile network security architecture should enable a more decentralized approach for authentication and authorization processes. This paper proposes a novel decentralized authentication architectur...

Data analytics can be seen as a powerful tool for the fifth-generation (5G) communication system to enable the transformation of the envisioned challenging 5G features into a reality. In the current 5G architecture, some first features toward this direction have been adopted by introducing new functions in core and management domains that can either run analytics on collected communication-related data or can enhance the already supported network functions with statistics collection and predicti...

Cell densification and addition of new Radio Access Technologies have been the solutions of choice for improving area-spectral efficiency to serve the ever-growing traffic demand. Both solutions, however, increase the cost and complexity of network operations for which the agreed solution is increased automation. Cognitive Autonomous Networks (CAN) will therefore use Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning (ML) to maximize the value of automation. This paper develops the models for cognitiv...

Network slicing is one of the key features of 5G mobile networks to cope with the diverging network requirements introduced by new use cases, like the IoT, autonomous driving and the Industry of the Future. Network slices are isolated, virtualized, end-to-end networks optimized for specific use cases. But still they share a common physical network infrastructure. Due to the dynamic life cycle of network slices there is a strong demand on efficient algorithms for mobile end-to-end network slice e...

Driven by a massive surge in digitization and customization, so-called vertical industries are expected to be a major beneficiary of the 5G of mobile networks. The use cases of such vertical industries define qualitative and quantitative requirements unprecedented in the history of mobile network development. Autonomous vehicles, traffic light control, video surveillance, and IIoT, to only name a few, introduce challenging requirements regarding both conventional performance metrics, such as thr...
