About this project

SliceNet has made substantial achievements in building a framework for network slicing across multiple administrative domains, facilitating early and smooth adoption of 5G slices for verticals to achieve their demanding use cases, and managing the QoE for slice services. The framework can be used by verticals in many sectors. Many achievements were also made by the project team in dissemination, exploitation and standardisation.
