Deterministic Networking (DetNet) has recently attracted much attention. It aims at studying the deterministic bounded latency and low latency variation for time-sensitive applications (e.g., industrial automation). To improve the quality of service (QoS) guarantee and make the network management efficient, it is desirable for Internet Service Provider (ISP) to obtain an optimal service function chain (SFC) provision strategy while providing deterministic service performance for the time-sensitive applications. In this paper, we will study the deterministic SFC lifetime management problem in beyond 5G edge fabric with the objective of maximizing the overall profits and ensuring the deterministic latency and jitter of SFC requests. We first formulate this problem as a mathematical model with the maximal profits for ISP. Then, the novel Deterministic SFC Deployment algorithm (Det-SFCD) and SFC Adjustment algorithm (Det-SFCA) due to traffic load variation are proposed to efficiently solve the SFC lifetime management problem. Extensive simulation results show that our proposed algorithms can achieve better performance in terms of SFC request acceptance rates, overall profits and latency variation compared with the benchmark algorithm.
