Deutsche Telekom and Huawei demonstrate yet another world first 5G technology with the addition of end-to-end autonomous behavior for 5G network slicing.

The partners previously demonstrated the world’s first end-to-end 5G system to validate network slicing technology for diverse 5G use case demands.

Building on that software defined foundation, this autonomous end-to-end network slicing implementation adds dynamic and real-time slicing of the 5G Radio Access network (RAN) and Data Center (DC), as well the interconnecting transmission network.

The demo has been conducted in Deutsche Telekom’s 5G:haus lab based in Bonn, Germany. It shows how different network slices can be created automatically in an optimized way on a shared RAN, Core and transport network.

This allows slices creation in sub-minute time while ensuring an efficient and intelligent allocation and re-allocation of resources as required for each individual slice.

“Network Slicing is envisaged for 5G to provide differentiated connectivity quickly and efficiently for the diverse future applications that our customers will demand. With automated network slicing, the development of highly flexible end-to-end network slicing becomes more complete,” said Bruno Jacobfeuerborn, Chief Technology Officer, Deutsche Telekom.

“Huawei has made significant key 5G technologies. This additional breakthrough on E2E network slicing automation is a great contribution to the 5G industry of the future and helps to bring the vision of 5G slicing closer to reality for our customers,”said Dr. Wen Tong, Huawei Fellow, CTO, Huawei Wireless.
