5G system and beyond will build on the network slicing for offering high customizable services with different requirements that run on top of the same shared infrastructure. Each network slice, such as Ultra-Reliable Low latency Communications (URLLC) and Enhanced Mobile Broadband (eMBB), has different requirements that can be even contradicting from a slice to another. A network slice consists of a set of physical or virtual network functions (VNF/PNF) that have various capabilities and run across multiple administrative and cloud domains of different technology. A user can simultaneously request multiple services from different network slices. In this paper, we address the problem of initial placement and live migration of multiple mobile services across centralized and edge cloud by taking into account service types, network conditions and users' mobility features. As a solution to this problem, in this paper, we suggest and evaluate a solution that orchestrates the network services in a cost-efficient way, ensuring that each user could be simultaneously served by multiple slices while perceiving a high QoS and ensuring that the service level agreements (SLAs) of the consumed services are not violated.
