Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) can provide cloud resources nearby a mobile user. This allows for low-latency communication between the User Equipment (UE) of the user and the cloud servers in the MEC. However, there may also be additional cloud servers in public (multi-)clouds (PMC), distributed all over the Internet. So, how to efficiently offload work from a UE to MEC and/or PMC resources? And, how to avoid «inventing the wheel again»?
A demo of workload offloading to MEC and PMC resources, based on the Reliable Server Pooling (RSerPool) framework and using resources in NorNet Core, has just been accepted for presentation at the 46th IEEE LCN 2021 in Edmonton, Alberta/Canada!
For more details about our demo, see: Dreibholz, Thomas and Mazumdar, Somnath: «A Demo of Workload Offloading in Mobile Edge Computing Using the Reliable Server Pooling Framework» (PDF, 1888 KiB), in Proceedings of the 46th IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN), Demo presentation, Edmonton, Alberta/Canada, October 7, 2021, [BibTeX, XML].
The demo is based on our previous work on using RSerPool for workload offloading: Dreibholz, Thomas and Mazumdar, Somnath: «Reliable Server Pooling Based Workload Offloading with Mobile Edge Computing: A Proof-of-Concept» (PDF, 1113 KiB), in Proceedings of the 2nd International Workshop on Recent Advances for Multi-Clouds and Mobile Edge Computing (M2EC) in conjunction with the 35th International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (AINA), vol. 3, pp. 582–593, DOI 10.1007/978-3-030-75078-7_58, ISBN 978-3-030-75078-7, Toronto, Ontario/Canada, May 14, 2021, [BibTeX, XML].
The pre-recorded video of the demo presentation can also be found on YouTube (4K resolution recommended).
