Optimisation of Edge Networks and their Distributed Applications

This document describes the components of RECAP, a novel integrated architecture and optimisation framework for optimising edge networks and distributed applications deployed on them. Models for understanding capacity provisioning for distributed edge networks are described, followed by a solution for intelligent and dynamic resource placement optimisation and orchestration. This is illustrated through a case study of an NFV-based LTE network. The results show how the proposed RECAP architecture can be used to optimise customer QoS and QoE while at the same time minimising infrastructure provider CAPEX and OPEX.
