Abstract

Wireless network slicing is a promising technology for next-generation networks to provide tailored on-demand services to mobile users. We consider a scheduling policy for wireless network slicing with the aim to maximize the energy efficiency of the network defined as the ratio of long-run average throughput of user requests to the long- run average power consumption. This gives rise to a problem of extremely high computational complexity which prevents direct application of conventional optimization techniques. We propose a scalable priority-based policy, referred to as the Most Energy-Efficient Resource First (MEERF). MEERF is proved to be asymptotically optimal in the special case approp..
