The studies conducted in this doctoral research contribute to the fields of mobile communications and networking in general, and more specifically, in the areas of network slice orchestration and service softwarization for 5G and beyond systems. The primary purpose of this dissertation is to make advancements towards solving the specific challenges (in terms of traffic isolation, dynamic resource provisioning and dynamic re/configuration, etc) of service-aware network slice orchestration across multiple domains. To address these challenges, this thesis has conducted a sound theoretical analysis of the subject matter, presented an implementation of a practical framework, put forward the design and development of a novel architecture, and proposed the development of an efficient scheme for a dynamic resource provisioning in a network slice orchestration system. First, a first-of-its-kind comprehensive survey to provide a holistic understanding of the concept of network slice orchestration, its design principles, and enabling technologies was conducted. Then, a proof or concept framework for the E2E slicing of the mobile network and 5/6G services was implemented. Furthermore, a novel architecture for facilitating the orchestration of network slices from multiple administrative domains was proposed and a convergence platform for the orchestration of such multi-domain slices was developed. Finally, we developed a scheme with an enabling architecture for the dynamic provisioning of virtual resources for slice orchestration systems.
