A need exists for the ability to dynamically reconfigure a network slice from one type to another type based on a business case. To address such a need, techniques are presented herein that support the dynamic and the automatic reconfiguration of a network slice from one type to another type. Aspects of the presented techniques encompass an End-to-End floating network slice with a generic slice template, trigger-based algorithms to change a network slice from one type to another, segment routing (SR) tagging-based dynamic network slice management at the transport network level, the implementation of an SR-aware core network, adaptations to an assurance-based model to serve end user applications, and cross-domain orchestration enhancements to facilitate a floating network slice.
