5G is expected to be modular by design toward autonomic and agile networks. In this regards, the 5G functional architecture is designed as service-based seeking to support the concept of Network Slicing. This leads us to the question: what componentization approach to implement this modular architecture? Is there a componentization approach that is suitable for all the network functions? Which design approach will help to have autonomic and cognitive networks? In this paper we shed the light on the different component-based approaches. In addition, we reviewed the state of the art addressing the applicability of component-based approaches to build autonomic networks. Therefore, we present discussion, comparison and synthesis as input to 5G related activities.
