Claim of US Patent No. 10,484,998

1. A method for execution by an access point (AP) within a radio access network (RAN), the method comprising:receiving, by the AP, data for transmission to a User Equipment (UE); and
wirelessly transmitting, by the AP, the received data to the UE using a set of transmission parameters associated with a RAN slice associated with the received data, wherein the RAN slice is selected from a set of RAN slices supported by the AP and the UE to enable the AP to provide different services for the UE using a common carrier, the transmission parameters associated with the RAN slices in the set of RAN slices including: (i) a respective frequency sub-band assignment within a frequency band of the common carrier; and (ii) a respective air interface configuration enabling the different services provided by the AP to the UE to be isolated from each other within the frequency band of the common carrier.
