    BGP-LS Maps : A Framework for Network Slicing and Enhanced VPNs
                    draft-drake-bess-enhanced-vpn-01

Abstract

   Future networks that support advanced services, such as those enabled
   by 5G mobile networks, envision a set of overlay networks each with
   different performance and scaling properties.  These overlays are
   known as network slices and are realized over a common underlay
   network.

   In order to support network slicing, as well as to offer enhanced VPN
   services in general, it is necessary to define a mechanism by which
   specific resources (links and/or nodes) of an underlay network can be
   used by a specific network slice, VPN, or set of VPNs.  This document
   sets out such a mechanism for use in Segment Routing networks.

1.  Introduction

   Network slicing is an approach to network operations that builds on
   the concept of network abstraction to provide programmability,
   flexibility, and modularity.  Driven largely by needs surfacing from
   5G, the concept of network slicing has gained traction, for example
