  • Publication number: 20210105784
    Abstract: An example method can include receiving, from a user equipment, single-network slice selection assistance information (S-NSSAI). The method can include determining a resource sharing configuration (RSC) associated with the S-NSSAI and determining whether the S-NSSAI is associated with a network slice instance (NSI) of the network. When the S-NSSAI is determined to be associated with a first NSI, the method can include mapping the S-NSSAI to the first NSI to permit the user equipment to communicate via the first NSI using a protocol data unit (PDU) session associated with the S-NSSAI. When the S-NSSAI is not determined to be associated with an NSI, the method can include forming a second NSI of the network according to the RSC associated with the S-NSSAI and mapping the S-NSSAI to the second NSI to permit the user equipment to communicate via the second NSI using a PDU session associated with the S-NSSAI.

  • Publication number: 20200204977
    Abstract: A device can receive, from a node in a core network, application identifiers associated with applications accessible by a first user device. The application identifiers can be associated with latency requirements. The device can obtain, from the first user device, a first packet associated with a first packet flow. The device can compare information regarding the first packet flow, and the application identifiers to determine that the first packet is destined for a low-latency application having a specified latency range. The device can identify a first low-latency bearer that satisfies the specified latency range associated with the low-latency application. The device can map the first packet flow to the first low-latency bearer, and communicate packets, associated with the first packet flow, using the first low-latency bearer. The packets can include data packets communicated between an entity hosting the low-latency application and the first user device, while bypassing the core network.
