Title: NETWORK CONTROL METHOD AND APPARATUS, AND COMMUNICATION SYSTEM
Abstract:
A network control method and apparatus and a communication system, capable of adjusting the network function entity deployment on the basis of the network function entity deployment policy required by a session, ensuring that the network function entity deployment is globally optimal for the service session. The method comprises: a policy control function entity determines a first network function entity required for a first session, and a first deployment policy for the first network function entity; the policy control function entity determines whether the current deployment state of the first network function entity satisfies the first deployment policy; if determining that the current deployment state of the first network function entity does not satisfy the first deployment policy, the policy control function entity sends a network function deployment adjustment command to a policy execution function entity, the network function deployment adjustment command being used for instructing the deployment of a first instance of the first network function entity in a target position.
