Hi Chairs (and WG),

This version includes the additional appendixes as discussed on the list.

I believe we are done with this document and we should push it through WG
last call, getting thorough review as we do it. I think that is fairly
pressing to reach conclusion on this framework so that the other dependent
documents know that they are building on stable foundations.

   This document describes network slicing in the context of networks
   built from IETF technologies.  It defines the term "IETF Network
   Slice" and establishes the general principles of network slicing in
   the IETF context.

   The document discusses the general framework for requesting and
   operating IETF Network Slices, the characteristics of an IETF Network
   Slice, the necessary system components and interfaces, and how
   abstract requests can be mapped to more specific technologies.  The
   document also discusses related considerations with monitoring and

   This document also provides definitions of related terms to enable
   consistent usage in other IETF documents that describe or use aspects
   of IETF Network Slices.
