New case study available! Case study Part 1 - Dynamic Virtualization and Migration of Contents and Servers

News date:

The UniverSelf project is proud to announce the release of the case study- Part 1: 

Use Case #3 - Dynamic Virtualization and Migration of Contents and Servers

The case study can be accessed under the Dissemination/White papers section, or directly at the following link: http://www.univerself-project.eu/white-papers


This case study focuses on the virtualization as well as the dynamic instantiation and migration of resources in a network close to the users. The considered resources encompass services (e.g. thin client applications) and content (e.g. videos stored in a cache), but also the functions of the mobile network itself (e.g. PGW, MME, etc.). The motivation is to provide/resolve the most frequently used resources/content/functions nearer to the mobile user. This will release the resource consumption (e.g., bandwidth, processing, storage) from the core and distribute them autonomously, intelligently and dynamically (on a use-case basis) towards the edge of the network (i.e. across backhaul and access network). The case study objective will be achieved by running the mobile core network functions on top of a virtualization layer on a general purpose server class machine, rather than on dedicated mission specific nodes. This approach is expected to improve the overall QoS/QoE for the users while also improving the resource utilization for the network operator.
