Network slicing allows mobile network operators to open their physical network infrastructure platform to the concurrent deployment of multiple logical self-contained networks, i.e., network slices. In this paper we propose and analyze ONETS: an Online NETwork Slicing solution that (i) builds on the budgeted lock-up multi-armed bandit mathematical model and properties, (ii) derives its analytical bounds in our proposed extension for network slicing, (iii) seamlessly integrates into the 3GPP
