Title: COMMUNICATION SYSTEM SUPPORTING NETWORK SLICING
Abstract:
A communication system is disclosed in which a communication device forms part of a communication system in which network slicing is supported and in which at least one tenant is able to communicate using at least one slice type associated with that tenant. The communication device receives network slicing related information transmitted by a base station. The network slicing related information may comprise information identifying support for a tenant whose communication is supported via the base station, or a network slice type of a tenant that is supported by the base station. The network slicing related information may comprise information comprising at least one communication parameter that is associated with a specific tenant or a specific slice type of a specific tenant. The communication device uses a slice having a slice type of a tenant with which the communication device is associated, based on the network slicing related information.
