These are very good clarifications.
Fwiw, I also see network slices as an abstract concept. Shunsuke did a much better job of bringing forth the right set of scenarios. Especially the last part on wholesale example is quite important and I wonder if this abstract slice is a service, is it sufficient to resolve the naming convention from  NSEs as CEs?

Cheers,
Kiran

Thank you for the clarifications. I can understand them and I won't say that PE/CE/AC can't be applied to IETF Network Slice usages.

I assume that this mismatch is brought by different perceptions about what network slice. Many people seem to think that network slice is a type of VPN service, and hope to use the traditional terms. I see network slice as an aggregate of resources and technologies. Also, I expect that network slices will be used by vertical industries in B2B2X models, and thus I need a more abstracted model.

In addition, regarding the term "IETF Network Slice Service", I think elaboration of the definition would be needed. For example, is this service  from whose point of view? In B2B2X models, I think what a middle B wants to see will be the range where a network slice is actually realized. Also, end customers will never recognize an IETF network slice exists there as well as other network services. So, I'm not sure if the service endpoint which is different from the network slice endpoint should be defined.

Regards,

Shunsuke

Objet : Re: [Teas] CE-based Network Slice RE: network Slice Endpoint in draft-ietf-teas-ietf-network-slice-definition-00

Thanks Med and Joel.

I agree that CE can be an endpoint of IETF Network Slice in managed CE case, and in other cases, IETF Network Slice is PE to PE.

And this is a reason why I'm hesitating to use the term CE/PE as the endpoint of IETF Network Slice. If endpoints may vary depending on underlay implementation (e.g., whether CE is managed or not), a logical identifier independent of underlay would be needed to simplify network slice model. (In my understanding, it was NSE.)

[Med] CE/PE terms are independent of the underlay. They simply delimit the scope of what is visible to a slice customer vs. the internal view of the slice provider.

Also, I understand the concept of "IETF Network Slice Service",  but I have some questions. In case that CE is not managed, can we call the connection between CEs which includes uncontrollable section IETF Network Slice Service?


[Med] It is still a service because it is where the service is delivered. For unmanaged CEs, the ** Guarantee Scope ** does not include the CE itself but may include the maintenance of attachment circuit if a physical link, for example, is also provided and maintained by the slice provider. It may also include the activation of specific protocols over that circuit by the slice provider. These considerations (activation means, service assurance) should be covered in the slice agreement.

One more, in the wholesale model, a slice broker may create an E2E network slice by combining slices provided from several network providers. In such a case, from a broker, where are endpoints in each network provider's domain?

[Med] The slice service will be delimited by the peer PEs (that will behave as CEs in the proposed model), while the slice itself is delimited by local PEs.

Regards,

Shunsuke
