6G systems are expected to serve a massive number of extremely heterogeneous Network Slices that cross multiple technological domains (i.e., RAN, Edge, Cloud, and Core), posing significant challenges to classical centralized management and orchestration approaches in terms of scalability and sustainability. Within this context, distributed and intelligent management and orchestration system is mandatory. This talk presents the challenges related to the management and orchestration of network slices in 5G and beyond mobile networks. Based on these requirements, a hierarchical, distributed, and AI-driven management framework is introduced, featuring a zero-touch service management concept. Finally, two use-case scenarios relaying on the proposed architecture are proposed.
