The novel concept of network slicing is envisioned to allow service providers to open their infrastructure to vertical industries traditionally alien to mobile networks, such as automotive, health or factories. In this way multiple vertical services can be delivered over the same physical facilities by means of advanced network virtualization techniques. However, the vertical service requirements heterogeneity (e.g., high throughput, low latency, high reliability) calls for novel orchestration

In this demonstration we will show a novel orchestration solution able to handle one of the most stringent requirements: end-to-end latency. Our testbed-evolution of the work presented in [1]-implements all the resource brokerage schemes and allocation operations necessary to complete the life-cycle management of network slices. In addition, the novel overbooking concept is applied to pursue the overall revenue maximization when admitting network slices. Finally, an advanced network slicing monitoring system will be provided as a user-friendly dashboard allowing users to interact with the proposed solution.
