0  Introductionp. 6

Autonomous network is one of the important topics in 5G network. Complexity of 5G network increases with large number of devices and diversity of services. Different autonomous mechanisms are introduced by the industry to reduce the complexity of mobile network and service management. Moving from a manual operating network to a fully autonomous network requires a stepwise progression. For each step there are different capability and performance level of autonomy. Thus the concept of autonomous network levels and corresponding requirements are introduced to describe and evaluate each level in details.

1  Scopep. 7

The present document specifies the concepts for autonomous networks, autonomous network level, and that use cases , requirements and solutions for the levels of autonomous functions in a 3GPP network.
