Hybrid Mobile Edge Computing: Unleashing the Full Potential of Edge Computing in Mobile Device Use Cases

Publikation: Beitrag in Buch/Bericht/KonferenzbandBeitrag in einem Konferenzband


Many different technologies fostering and supporting distributed and decentralized computing scenarios emerged recently. Edge computing provides the necessary on- demand computing power for Internet-of-Things (IoT) devices where it is needed. Computing power is moved closer to the consumer, with the effect of reducing latency and increasing fail-safety due to absent centralized structures. This is an enabler for applications requiring high-bandwidth uplinks and low latencies to computing units. In this paper, a new use case for edge computing is identified. Mobile devices can overcome their battery limitations and performance constraints by dynamically using the edge-computing-provided computational power. We call this new technology Hybrid Mobile Edge Computing. We present a general architecture and framework, which targets the mobile device use case of hybrid mobile edge computing, not only considering the improvement of performance and energy consumption, but also providing means to protect user privacy, sensitive data and computations. The achieved results are backed by the results of our analysis, targeting the energy saving potentials and possible performance improvements.
