      IETF Network Slice Controller and its associated data models
            draft-contreras-teas-slice-controller-models-00

Abstract

   This document describes the major functional components of an IETF
   Network Slice Controller (NSC) as well as references the data models
   required for supporting the requests of IETF network slices and their
   realization.

1.  Introduction

   Editor's Note: the terminology in this draft will be aligned with the
   final terminology selected for describing the notion of IETF Network
   Slice when applied to IETF technologies, which is currently under
   discussion.  By now same terminology as used in
   [I-D.nsdt-teas-ietf-network-slice-definition] and
   [I-D.nsdt-teas-ns-framework] is primarily used here.  Consensus to
   use "IETF Network Slice" term has been reached.

   The generic idea of network slicing intends to provide tailored end-
   to-end network capabilities to customers in the way that they could
   be perceived as a dedicated network, despite the fact that it makes
   use of shared physical infrastructure facilities.

   Among the capabilities mentioned, connectivity of different parts of
   a network slice with particular characteristics play a central role.
   Thus, the concept of IETF Network Slice, realized by any of the IETF
   technologies, emerges as complementary but essential part of an end-
   to-end network slice.

   In order to facilitate the request, realization and lifecycle control
   and management of a transport slice, a new element named IETF Network
