Claim of US Patent No. 10,716,150

1. A method comprising:receiving a request, by a master service orchestration layer from an application service layer for a communication session, the request originating from a user device;
coordinating, by the master service orchestration layer, an identification of resources, wherein the identification of resources comprises:
identifying a first resource from a plurality of first resources, wherein the first resource is associated with a radio access network (RAN) service control layer for a radio access network wherein the RAN service control layer is in direct communication with the master service orchestration layer and wherein the plurality of resources includes at least one virtual network function (VNF);
identifying a second resource from a plurality of second resources, wherein the second resource is associated with an LTE service control layer for LTE core functions and wherein the LTE service control layer is in direct communication with the master service orchestration layer; and
identifying a third resource from a plurality of third resources, wherein the third resource is associated with a content service control layer for content and wherein the content service control layer is in direct communication with the master service orchestration layer;
allocating a virtual machine to be used to instantiate the at least one VNF;
instantiating the at least one VNF;
establishing, by the master service orchestration layer, the communication session using the first resource, the second resource and the third resource by facilitating direct communications between the RAN service control layer, the LTE service control layer and the content service control layer.
