D2.1 Use Cases Definition and Requirements of the System and
This Deliverable presents the initial design of the overall SELFNET framework.
SELFNET creates an autonomic network management framework to meet the
requirements of advanced self-organizing network (SON) capabilities for the 5G
network infrastructure providing insights into the key technologies involved. In
particular, a seamless integration of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), Network
Function Virtualization (NFV) and network intelligence is proposed. The deliverable
specifies three use cases that are used to derive the system requirements, and to
validate and demonstrate the capabilities of the SELFNET framework. The use cases
propose innovative proactive/reactive actions in self-healing, self-protection and selfoptimization
of software-defined and virtualized 5G networks. Furthermore, it
presents a detailed list of requirements for realizing each system component as well
as the use cases.
