5G Network Slicing

Network Slicing creates new commercial possibilities and the ability to support diverse services with specific performance requirements

What is Network Slicing?

Earmarked as a prominent feature of 5G, Network Slicing enables connectivity and data processing tailored to customers’ specific requirements.

Mobile communications provided by these smart networks enhance the efficiency and productivity of business processes, opening an opportunity for operators to more effectively address the Business to Business segment.

The GSMA sets out to understand the service requirements expressed by business customers from different vertical industries in several key sectors, including energy, IoT, automotive, manufacturing and many more. Further to that, the GSMA working with operators and vendors have defined a Generic Slice Template (GST) to facilitate operators to sign a Service Level Agreement (SLA) with verticals and enable interoperability and roaming.
