Abstract

In-network processing pushes computational capabilities closer to the edge of the network, enabling new kinds of location-aware, real-time applications, while preserving bandwidth in the core network.<br />In mobile and heterogeneous usage contexts, the question arises how a client that wishes to leverage edge devices for offloading can discover the most appropriate surrogate in the network for the task. In this paper, we propose a brokering mechanism that matches clients with the best available surrogate, based on specified requirements and capabilities. The broker is implemented on standard home routers, and thus, leverages the ubiquity of such devices in an urban environment.<br />To motivate the feasibility of using existing routers in an urban environment, we conduct a coverage analysis based on collected access point locations in a major city. We show that even if a small number of routers are upgraded to provide the brokering functionality, this still leads to a high coverage for mobile users.<br />Furthermore, the brokering functionality introduces only a minimal resource overhead on the routers and can significantly reduce the latency compared to distant, cloud-based solutions.
