Virtual Networking for Lowering Cost of Ownership
Book chapter, 2022

5G and beyond mobile networks hold the promise of supporting a vast emergence of new services and increased traffic growth. This represents a challenge for mobile networks operators, which are faced with the pressure of providing a variety of these services according to the stringent requirements of future mobile network generations, while still being able to (i) preserve service resilience, (ii) sustain profitability by reducing costs, and (iii) ensuring minimal energy consumption in the infrastructure. Fortunately, emerging 5G and beyond networks are expected to adopt increasingly prominent technological drivers that can tackle the above challenges by pushing the planning and management operations logic to the limit.
