Coded Collaborative Caching for Wireless Energy Efficiency

Project Details


Caching of date at the edge of a mobile network is a very promising method for reducing the energy consumption in communication. Caching removes the energy expenditure of multiple backhaul and core network transmissions of the same data. Collaborative caching, where the multiple network nodes participate to cache data, and serve users, enhances caching efficiency. Caching content according to predicted user needs may further enhance energy efficiency, as costly wireless transmissions over long distances may be avoided. Modern codes can be used for enhancing caching efficiency, and to provide guarantees against uncertainties in user needs. In this project, collaborative and coded caching in mobile networks will be studied, with an objective to increase the network overall energy efficiency.
