Abstract : The network slicing of physical infrastructure is required for fifth-generation mobile networks to make significant changes in how service providers deliver and defend services in the face of evolving end-user performance requirements. To perform this, a fast and secure slicing technique is employed for node allocation and connection establishment, which necessitates the usage of a large number of domain applications across the network. PROMETHEE-II and SLE algorithms were used in this study’s approach to network design for node allocation and link construction, respectively. The PROMETHEE-II approach takes into account a variety of node characteristics while constructing a node importance rank array (NIRA), including the node capacity, bandwidth of neighboring connections, degree of the node, and proximity centrality among others. The SLE method is proposed to record all possible link configurations for the network slice request (NSR) nodes to guarantee that the shortest path array (SPA) of the NSR has a high acceptance rate. Performance metrics such as the service revenue and acceptance ratio were considered to evaluate the effectiveness of the suggested approach. The effectiveness of network slicing has been further examined under different infrastructure models to determine whether a small-world network structure is beneficial to 5G network. For each scenario, simulations were carried out and the results were compared to previously published findings from other sources.
