Abstract

In a virtualization aspect, Network Function Virtualization (NFV) has a role in implementing network slicing. Using NFV to slice the network, make the network more flexible but very complicated in term of management. A slice means, it is a set of services that the network needs based on the user requirements. Moreover, each slice has a set of services called sub-slice, or one type of service. This project aims to improve the availability and scalability of the services in network slicing by managing the performance of the inter/intra slice in real-time. Also, this project will enhance the Quality of Service (QoS) for the network resources and services and the Quality of Experience (QoE) for the users within the slice when we applied machine learning algorithms to classify and predicate accurate service to the user.

With this research, we implemented the slices based on the principles of NFV to deliver flexibility in the 5G network by creating multiple slices on top of the physical network. When the implementation of the prototype is completed, traffic generated tool was used to send traffic over the slice. After data collection, we classified different services using machine learning algorithms. The optimizable tree model had almost high accuracy among other algorithms which was 99.3\%.
