Management beyond the edge

NTU Management beyond the edge 1Objective: Computing capacity in edge locations and the wireless access are managed separately. However, delivering the full potential of MECs requires that edge locations and wireless networks be managed in concert

PIs: Erik Elmoroth (UmU), Kai-Kuang Ma (NTU)

Targeted problem: To design new resource allocation methods to improve and unify the management of Mobile Edge Clouds (MECs)

Approach:

  • Game theory will be used to analyze the optimal strategy of each player, thus verifying that the goals of the devised mechanisms are met.
  • A player interaction protocol will devised and validated using simulations.
  • Development of mathematical models and algorithms to efficiently solve the network and computing resource allocation for MECs.
