Network slicing enables the creation of multiple logical independent networks on physical networking infrastructure. Network slice deployment in a Fifth Generation (5G) mobile network can be classified as vertical and horizontal slicing. The paper compares the performance of the two slicing methods through solving two convex optimization problems, considering several smart hospital scenarios that differ from each other based on their medical speciality. The results are used to draw insights on the most appropriate slicing approach for each setup.
