The developments of 5G wireless technology, enables serving to various vertical industries through sharing a common infrastructure. To this end, multi-tenancy support of these diverse industries are realized on virtualized networks with the help of network slicing. The introduction of sharing brings many challenges such as QoS satisfaction, fairness and performance isolation among slices. The diversity of these slices mainly lies in their data rate requests and user populations. The slices with high data rate traffic requests are often given large number of resources. That resource allocation approach leaves the slice requests for low data rate slices out of the network. Overcoming all of these challenges with an efficient resource allocation approach is the main concern of this work. In this thesis, we propose DUCA (Dynamic User Count Aware) network slicing,a novel resource allocation scheme for virtualized radio access networks (RAN). DUCA’s resource allocation objective is to serve large number of user requests with high resource utilization results in the presence of diverse slice requirements. To this end, DUCA is formulated with an additional user count parameter so that not only requested amount of data rates but also user populations of slices can effect resource allocation. DUCA is compared with other resource allocation schemes under different network configurations. Simulation results show that the proposed DUCA outperforms compared resource allocation methods.

Dynamic Resource Management in Next Generation Networks with Dense User Traffic
Aslan, Aysun; Bal Bozkurt, Gülce; Toker, Cenk (IEEE; 2020-12-04)
With the era of the fifth generation (5G) networks, supporting all mobile service users who have different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements becomes the main challenge. To manage and satisfy the heterogeneous requirements, network slicing concept can be a solution over a common physical infrastructure. Splitting the network into slices which have different properties (e.g., bandwidth requirements, delay tolerance, user density, etc.) allows to schedule and optimize the requests under the constraint of l...

Analyzing enhanced real-time uplink scheduling algorithm in 3GPP LTE-advanced networks using multimedia systems
Deebak, B. D.; Ever, Enver; Al-Turjman, Fadi (2018-10-01)
Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standardizes the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) to improve the quality of service in modern communication systems using 3GPP LTE-advanced (LTE-A) networks. As this technology is converging with modern devices, efficient resource allocation schemes are essential for minimization of the communication delay for the sensitive real-time devices. To achieve the demands of latest technologies, this paper proposes two novel mechanisms, enhanced real-time polling system with co...
Dynamic radio channel management in cellular mobile communication systems
Yilmaz, N; Ergul, R (2004-09-29)
We present a dynamic radio bandwidth management scheme for mobile communication systems to achieve a high level of QoS for both handoff calls and new calls, while at the same time to improve the utilization of wireless network resources. The simultaneous satisfaction of these two actually conflicting interests will be thanks to two major key features. First, due to the apriori information about handoff reservation requests that is provided by the mobile terminal. This information is based on the cell transi...

The number of Internet of Things (IoT) devices and the use cases they aim to support have increased sharply in the past decade with the rapid developments in wireless networking infrastructures. Despite many advantages, the widespread use of IoT has also created a large attack surface frequently exploited by cyber criminals, requiring real-time, automated detection and mitigation of various attacks in the high-volume network traffic generated. Software-defined networking (SDN) and machine learning (ML) base...
