Title: IMPLEMENTING RADIO ACCESS NETWORK SLICING IN A MOBILE NETWORK
Abstract:
In one example, requirement(s) are determined for data flows though different logical instances of mobile networks. The data flows are between UE(s) and the logical instances of the mobile networks. Information for the determined requirement(s) is sent to a multiple node controller to allow the multiple node controller to output information to enable configuration of RRC. The configuration causes the RRC to cause radio subflow(s), which flow through different radio legs and to the UE(s), to satisfy the requirement(s). In another example, mapping is received that maps different logical instances of mobile networks and their associated service flows to radio subflows that flow through different radio legs and to UE(s). The radio subflows, which flow through different radio legs and to the UE(s), are caused to satisfy the requirement(s) for the data flows. Apparatus, methods, programs, and program products are disclosed.
