Abstract

The integration of satellite communications into 5G ecosystem is pivotal to boost enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB) services in highly dynamic scenarios and in areas not optimally supported by terrestrial infrastructures. Given the heterogeneity of the networks involved, network slicing is key networking paradigm to ensure different grades of quality of service (QoS) based on the users' and verticals' requirements. In this light, this paper proposes an optimisation framework able to exploit the available resources allocated to the defined network slices so as to meet the diverse QoS/QoE requirements exposed by the network actors. Resource allocation schemes built upon neural network algorithms are validated through extensive simulation campaigns that have shown the superiority of the proposed concepts with respect to other solution candidates available from the literature.
