The main objective of this document is to provide the architecture of the control plane of the SliceNet project. It starts with the definition of a slice and relevant projects and standardization bodies/interest groups that deal with the control plane architecture of 5G networks. It then details the main components of the SliceNet Control Plane, the P&P and the QoE along with their APIs. Also the Intra domain and Inter domain slicing have been analysed and workflows have been detailed. Workflows of the main components of the SliceNet CP such as P&P and QoE have been detailed and workflows of P&P and QoE have been described with regards to the SliceNet use cases. Data programmability and control of the resources by the CP are also detailed.
