Edge-Caching tackling in 5G.

Wireless data traffic increases due to the growth in the number of pervasive mobile devices, social networking, and resource-intensive applications of end users [1]. This traffic manifests in diverse domains such as the Internet of Things (IoT) [2], Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications [3], and cloud computing [4]. Considering the different structures of data traffic stemming from these domains, their organizations are vital. Moreover, enhanced mobile broadband (eMBB), ultra-reliable low-latency communications (URLLC), […]

Caching at the Edge

The tremendous data traffic demand and the arrival of new mobile services will lead to unwieldy traffic congestion in mobile communications networks over the next decade. This situation, which is similar to the one experienced in the Internet network in the 2000s, has established parallelisms between 5G –the future mobile communications generation- and the Internet network, thus paving the way for similar solutions to similar problems. In this context, mainly […]

Applied Machine Learning in Network Optimization

Machine learning for wireless networking has the potential to provide a breakthrough in network management and optimization.This article, details the basic workflow of how the basic workflow model can be applied in the network context. The main phases involve problem formulation, monitoring and data collection, data processing and analysis, model construction, model tuning, model deployment and inference. Although these phases have prominent correlations and inter-dependencies, this workflow provides a high-level […]

Machine learning: paving the way for future Mobile Networks

The unprecedented surge in data traffic experienced over the last decade has stretched the telecommunications networks to their capacity. According to Cisco’s forecast (included in the Cisco Visual Networking Index: Forecast and Methodology report), global IP traffic will have increased 127-fold from 2005 to 2021. This demand rise will even be exacerbated for wireless and mobile traffic, which is expected to account for more than 60% of the total IP […]
