Network slicing is a crucial part of the 5G networks that communication service providers (CSPs) seek to deploy. By exploiting three main enabling technologies, namely, software-defined networking (SDN), network function virtualization (NFV), and network slicing, communication services can be served to the end-users in an efficient, scalable, and flexible manner. To adopt these technologies, what is highly important is how to allocate the resources and admit the customers of the CSPs based on the predefined criteria and available resources. In this regard, we propose a novel joint resource and admission management algorithm for slice-enabled networks. In the proposed algorithm, our target is to minimize the network cost of the CSP subject to the slice requests received from the tenants corresponding to the virtual machines and virtual links constraints. Our performance evaluation of the proposed method shows its efficiency in managing CSP’s resources.
