The demo will show how to slice the radio access network that consists of a fronthaul segment between the remote radio unit (RRU) and radio aggregation unit (RAU) and a backhaul segment between the RAU and the RAN controller. Through the separation of the RAN control and data plane coupled with the virtualized control functions and control delegation features, real-time control applications can be implemented in support of fine-grain RAN programmability. This allows different levels of coordination among RAN infrastructure elements by dynamic placement of virtual control functions following SDN and NFV principles for adapting control over time and for easing network evolution to the future. We will create two RAN slices based on the OpenAirInterface and Mosaic-5G platforms and try to demonstrate a video streaming on two smart phones connected to their respective slice and observe their perceived quality of experience.
