Abstract
Network slicing to enable resource sharing among multiple tenants-network operators and/or services-is considered as a key functionality for next generation mobile networks. This paper provides an analysis of a well-known model for resource sharing, the share-constrained proportional allocation mechanism, to realize network slicing. This mechanism enables tenants to reap the performance benefits of sharing, while retaining the ability to customize their own users' allocation. This results in a network slicing game in which each tenant reacts to the user allocations of the other tenants so as to maximize its own utility. We show that, for elastic traffic, the gam...
