This project leverages the concept of network virtualization by creating independent instances of Network Slices that guarantees isolation from the underlying hardware. The Data Utility Controller (DUC) creates and manages the network slices and provides a dedicated portal for each of the Service Providers to manage their slice of the network. In addition, the concept of Network Function Virtualization (NFV) and end user control is demonstrated through a cloud-based services platform.
