QoS Impacts of Slice Traffic Limitation

Slicing is an essential building block of 5G networks and beyond. Different slices mean sets of traffic demands with different requirements, which need to be served over separated or shared network resources. Various service chaining methods applied to support slicing lead to different network load patterns, impacting the QoS experienced by the traffic. In this paper, we analyze QoS properties applying a theoretical model. We also suggest appropriate parameter setting policies in slice-aware service function chaining (SFC) algorithms to increase QoS. We evaluate several metrics in different analysis scenarios to show the advantages of the slice-aware approach.
