Mobility-Enabling Edge Cloud Infrastructure: Testbed and Experimental Evaluation

  • Mobility management is a key feature of mobile edge computing. We present an edge cloud infrastructure testbed to explore various mobility scenarios. The design objection of this testbed has been a flexible open platform based on commodity hardware that can easily be scaled with more edge devices and compute resources to perform various edge cloud experiments. As first experiments on our testbed, we have investigated the feasibility of task migration among edge devices caused by edge device overload and unpredictable user movements. We describe the migration process and present some measurements to demonstrate the feasibility.
