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 limited resources. The network has to decide to accept or reject the requests, and scale up/down the slices by considering the user density in accepted requests, and then, schedule the accepted requests to serve them in an order. In this paper, it is verified that slicing the network and scaling up/down the slices by using deep reinforcement learning (DRL) algorithms with consideration of user density, improve the speed of satisfaction of users with respect to the classical baseline scheduling algorithms.

In next generation networks, with the increasing number of diverse mobile network service types, a major challenge lies in how to manage and support all mobile service users who have different Quality of Service (QoS) requirements. Network slicing term can be a solution to satisfy the heterogeneous network requests 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...
Dynamic resource allocation in virtualized networks for network slicing
Canpolat, Ceren; Güran Schmidt, Şenan Ece.; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2020)
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 ra...
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...
Semantic Edge Caching and Prefetching in 5G
MEHTEROĞLU, Can; DURMUŞ, Yunus; Onur, Ertan (2017-01-11)
Recent popularity of mobile devices increased the demand for mobile network services and applications that require minimal delay. 5G mobile networks are expected to provide much lesser delay than the present mobile networks. One of the conventional ways for decreasing the latency is caching the content closer to the end user. However, currently deployed methods are not effective enough. In this work-in-progress paper, we propose a new astute caching strategy that is able to smartly predict subsequent user r...
A Flow Aggregation Method for the Scalable and Efficient Quality of Service Support in Next Generation Networks
Sanli, Mustafa; Schmidt, Şenan Ece; Guran, Hasan Cengiz (2013-12-13)
The services in the Next Generation Network (NGN) will be created on demand by the customers and will require end-to-end Quality of Service (QoS) for each flow. A very significant component for the end-to-end QoS support in the Internet is the packet schedulers in the routers. The complexity of the packet scheduling algorithms increases with the number of flows. As a solution, flow aggregation decreases the number of flows processed by the scheduler. The previous work in the literature proves that if the fl...
