Abstract—Resource Management (RM) in fifth generation (5G) radio access network has been the subject of extensive study in recent years. An agile RM framework should encompass greatly-improved services from previous mobile network generations along with advanced new services meeting the challenging requirements, like massive data rate and ultra-low latency. The novel aspects of 5G system lies within co-existence of diverse legacy or new wireless technologies and air interfaces (AI) consuming shared resources of frequency, time, etc. This will lead to new use-cases, which should holistically be addressed by a comprehensive RM framework. In this paper we explore a number of these use cases, namely flexible services-based time scheduling, integration and abstraction of multiple AI variants (AIV) in a systematic way. RM for device-to-device communication and RM for inter-network collaboration have been shown as examples exploiting this model abstraction.
