Abstract

This paper explores and makes a case for allocating a Wide-area Infrastructure Manager (WIM) on-demand to support softwarized network slicing, as part of the full NFVI virtualised infrastructure foundation, to ensure that the connectivity attributes prescribed to network slices can be managed with flexibility and adaptability in a full end-to-end slice. We show how creating a WIM on-demand and dynamically allocating a new WIM for each network slice, rather than having one for the whole network, can be beneficial for various slicing scenarios, in a similar way that a Virtual Infrastructure Manager (VIM) on-demand has been utilized. The paper considers some of the components, abstractions, and mechanisms of WIM on-demand.
