Welcome to Technologies for the Wireless Edge Workshop Home Page

5G networks are expected to deliver a host of new services with a wide variety of resource requirements. A variety of edge technologies are expected to play a key role in this development.

Caching at the edge of the network, e.g., at base stations and WiFi access points, is increasingly being explored to mitigate backhaul bottlenecks. Issues like caching location, passive and proactive caching algorithms, cache replacement policies in the context of cooperative caching (e.g., between content distribution network and edge networks) and non cooperative caching (e.g., edge networks proactively caching content, possibly exploiting community behavior) are being explored. Algorithms and incentivisation of WiFi offloading over public and private WiFi networks is another fast developing edge technology. There are other emerging content related issues like algorithms for distributed storage and control, multicast delivery of content, facilitation of content and information-centric networking. Increased softwarisation of the network will lead to a faster deployment of specialised (for local needs) and targeted (for personal needs) applications. And then there are security concerns; keeping content and computation local could ease security bottlenecks.

The workshop will explore state of the art theory and systems research in mobile edge technologies like the preceding. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to,

Edge caching at the base stations and WiFi access points
Edge computing and applications
Security at the edge
Analytics at the edge
Bandwidth conservation at the edge
WiFi offloading and hybrid operations

We especially welcome papers on system design; and possible demos.
