6GDAWN-ELASTIC (within the coordinated project 6GDAWN) will devise a distributed management plane to handle the deployment of a massive number of network slices with emphasis on its elasticity, i.e., its capacity to adapt to varying demands and network conditions. To this end, 6GDAWN-ELASTIC will evolve the traditional centralized cloud management system architecture, composed of three main entities: Monitoring System (MS), Analytics Engine (AE) and Decision Engine (DE), towards a distributed system, where the components will be decomposed and distributed over different technological domains (i.e., RAN, Core, Cloud, MEC).

By combining the Intent-based policy definition and the cognitive management entities, 6GDAWN-ELASTIC will develop multi-domain AI-driven zero-touch network configuration of sliced 6G networks. The DE will be configured with Intent-based policies, provided by the slice owner and the network operators, which specify what needs to be achieved.

6GDAWN-ELASTIC will leverage the developed massive scalable network slicing, energy-efficient and sustainable network management to propose innovative schemes that suit the needs of infrastructure providers, vertical tenants and final consumers.
