Hi All,
All following drafts has the similar idea to carry an ID in the forwarding data plane. The id is to represent the network slice. But there are different definitions for the ID (VTN ID, Slice ID, Slice Selector/Slice Aggregate ID, etc. ) in these drafts. At the same time, the slice has been defined as the north bound interface as the service. I suggest that the terminology must be unified in the TEAS WG firstly. Or else it will cause much confusion and mess which also have much effect on the work in other WGs.
