  "description": "<p>This short paper considers some of the economic drivers and considerations for elasticity as proposed in virtualised 5G network architectures such as under the 5G MoNArch project. The current commercial challenges faced in today&rsquo;s mobile networks are first introduced, and how network slicing and improved network flexibility and elasticity promises to go some way to addressing these. An evolved mobile ecosystem enabled by network slicing and virtualisation is applied to an example use cases to understand how network elasticity may drive better cost efficiencies within this framework.</p>",
