主 题：Service Provisioning in Future Communication Networks
The fifth generation (5G) communication networks will accommodate a wide range of emerging services with diverse service quality requirements. The network will integrate a variety of network resources and technologies to support high transmission rate and to enhance quality of experience to mobile users. The traditional one-size-fits-all network architecture cannot efficiently meet the needs of different services, due to the poor scalability, limited adaptability, and inflexibility. Network function virtualization (NFV) enabled by software defined networking (SDN) technology is a promising approach for an agile and flexible 5G networking infrastructure. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of several recent studies for 5G networks, including dynamic radio resource slicing in wireless network virtualization, computing and transmission resource allocation in the core network, and how to establish a customized virtual network topology for multicast services. We will conclude this presentation with a brief discussion of some open research topics.
