Flavors of virtually partitioning a network have been around for a while but, with 5G, the complexity explodes given variability of capacity, latency, mobility, device mix, and other factors.

Today Nokia claimed a world’s first with its announcement of new software-based network management, control and orchestration tools related to delivering a slice across the core, transport and radio access networks.
