Network Slice
Multiple options will be used in conjunction with network slicing such as virtualization which helps companies build FTTH networks. This will provide service to more residential customers. It is also a benefit for companies to save money when building FTTH networks.

Benefits
Anything that helps 5G I am all for it. Network slicing has several benefits. I remember early on in my career I wonder on capacity management initiatives. However, many companies still do not include capacity management in their long-term strategic plan. Addressing capacity issues will improve customer satisfaction.

It makes sense that network slicing is being used due to the demand for increased speed and services. In addition, the increase of usage of VR, AI and streaming data services requires the need for multiple options to be used to meet consumer demand. I wonder if network slicing will be used in the smart home technology market.

Slicing
Wow. This is a great statistic. Network slicing may be the next hot technology. It is expected to triple in the next 4-5 years.

Re: Potential Risks?
@mhhf1ve. I was wondering the same thing. It would be great if all risks can be eliminated. However, I don't think that will occur because most companies still do not see security as a priority even if AI can make it easier to develop security measures. Most companies spend the budget on marketing and R&D. Very little is directed towards security.

Re: Potential Risks?
I had read somewhere that introverts are great for having the skepticism to look at ideas in a more realistic way, seeing any benefits and problems clearly, while the extroverts just charge in and make changes without closely examining the consequences.

Re: Potential Risks?
Heh. I just remembered a physicist friend of mine once said that a glass of water isn't half full or half empty -- because there's so much empty space between the subatomic particles that make up matter, everything is mostly empty space.

Re: Potential Risks?
@mhhf1ve my impression is that extroverts can be more optimistic, though, as they require stimulation from other people, they can grow very depressed when they are put in positions of solitude.  Picture this: you're alone in garden with only a book for company. If you're an introvert that's pretty close to heaven. If you're an extrovert, that seems like the punishment of exile.

IoT traffic
With IoT devices be designed to not overwhelm networks during peak usage times? Or will it even matter to IoT devices? I'd hope that IoT devices wouldn't try to communicate all the time and bump off higher priority traffic, but then again, I suppose the end of net neutrality is going to make that easier for network operators to handle from their end.
