The upcoming 5G ecosystem is envisioned to build business-driven Network Slices to accommodate the different needs of divergent service types, applications and services in support of vertical industries. In this paper, we describe the Network Slicing concept, by unveiling a novel Network Slicing architecture for integrated 5G communications. Further, we demonstrate its realization, for the case of evolved LTE, using state of the art technologies. Finally, we elaborate on the LTE specific requirements towards 5G and point out existing challenges and open issues.
