Abstract Network slicing has been one of the hottest topics in standardization recently, as telecom operators are intensively investigating its usage for operating isolated and independently configurable logical networks, in order to ease and promote the network sharing and neutral hosting business. However, extensive deployments of slice management solutions are often impeded by incompatibilities of the used slice data models, which stem from different definitions and modelling approaches for the slicing concept, e.g., some driven by 3GPP standards, others by other standards or proprietary solutions, and so on. Although various studies on slicing have been perf...
