One of the most significant advancements in 5G is the concept of network slice, which allows creating multiple virtual networks on a single physical infrastructure. In the context of mission-critical communications, the usage of end-to-end slices would enable the use of a public 5G network to provide robust, secure, and highly reliable communication systems during Public Protection and Disaster Relief (PPDR) communications. This paper empirically demonstrates the 5G network slices, illustrating their efficacy in supporting differentiated service requirements.

We explore the architectural setup, the implementation of slice[1]specific performance attributes, and the potential impacts on emergency response operations. Our findings aim to contribute to the ongoing discourse on applying 5G technologies for critical communication scenarios, providing insights into the practical challenges and solutions associated with deploying network slices for PPDR purposes.
