Title: APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR ATTACHING USER EQUIPMENT TO A MOBILE COMMUNICATIONS NETWORK
Abstract:
A method in a user equipment for attaching the user equipment to a mobile communications network comprises receiving a list of network slice identities, wherein a network slice identity identifies a portion of the mobile communications network that serves as a logical network to a set of user equipment (step 201). A network slice is selected based on one or more criteria (step 203). A network slice attachment request is sent to a network node (step 205), for requesting attachment of the user equipment to the selected network slice of the mobile communications network.
