5G Network Slicing

Network slicing is a set of logical networks enabled across shared infrastructure. Each logical network is designed for a defined business purpose which requires network resources, configured for end-to-end connectivity. 

Network slicing is a key technology of 5G tailored to specific customer's requirements. Each network slice is identified with specific network capabilities and characteristics.
Here are some of the different 5G slice service types:

1. Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB): This slice type is designed to deliver high-speed and high-capacity data services to mobile users. It focuses on providing enhanced mobile broadband experiences, offering faster download and upload speeds and lower latency for activities such as video streaming, gaming, and large file transfers.

2. Ultra-Reliable Low-Latency Communications (URLLC): URLLC slices prioritize ultra-low latency and high reliability, making them suitable for mission-critical applications that require real-time responsiveness. This could include autonomous vehicles, industrial automation, remote surgery, and public safety applications where any delay or failure could have severe consequences.

3. Massive Machine-Type Communications (mMTC): mMTC slices are optimized for supporting a massive number of devices and sensors connected to the network. These slices are targeted towards Internet of Things (IoT) applications, enabling efficient connectivity, data collection, and management for smart homes, smart cities, environmental monitoring, and other IoT deployments.

4. Network-Specific Slices: In addition to the above standard slices, network-specific slices can be created based on specific requirements of industries or enterprises. These slices can be customized to cater to specialized needs, such as banking, healthcare, transportation, or retail, by providing dedicated resources, security measures, and QoS parameters unique to those industries.

Each slice type is configured with specific performance, capacity, security, latency, and other parameters to ensure that it meets the particular requirements of the intended use case.

Network operators can offer these slices to different customers or industries, tailoring them to their specific needs and delivering highly differentiated services over a shared infrastructure.
