Title: MANAGEMENT OF GNB IN NETWORK FUNCTIONS VIRTUALIZATION FRAMEWORK
Abstract:
Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) abstracts network functions, allowing them to be installed, controlled, and manipulated by software running on standardized compute nodes such as cloud computing platform rather than on dedicated hardware. In a 5G mobile communications network, the base station or gNB may be split into virtualized and non-virtualized network functions (NFs). Described herein are systems and methods for managing such gNBs within the NFV framework.
