  The Use Cases of Common Operation and Management of Network Slicing
                     draft-qiang-coms-use-cases-00

Abstract

   The Common Operation and Management of network Slicing (COMS) intends
   to provide a comprehensive approach for the overall operation and
   management of network slicing in the scope if IETF.  The system is
   designed in a hierarchical and inter-operative manner.  COMS is
   capable of recursive adaption in a hierarchical network management
   system.  It is also independent of data plane technologies used in
   different administrative domains.  Both network slice operator and
   network slice tenant may benefit for COMS for the purpose of slice
   management and maitenance.The purpose of this document is to discuss
   the use cases of COMS in different views.
