Network Slicing is one of the core features in 5G, which provides different network service as independent logical networks. To provide 5G network slices service, an end-to-end network slice needs to consists of 3 major types of network segments: Radio Access Network (RAN), Mobile Core Network (CN) and Transport Network (TN). This document describes the application of IETF network slice in providing 5G end-to-end network slices, including the network slice identification mapping, network slice parameter mapping and 5G IETF Network Slice NBI.
