Dynamic Schedule Computation for Time-Aware Shaper in Converged IoT-Cloud Environments

2024 - 27th IEEE Conference on Innovation in Clouds, Internet and Networks (ICIN 2024)
Over the last years, we have seen the emergence of (hyper-)distributed applications, which tend to be provisioned over resources that span IoT devices, IoT gateways, and compute nodes from edge computing infrastructures. The deployment and orchestration of such services benefits from types of IoT…

A Virtual Object Stack for IoT-Enabled Applications Across the Compute Continuum

2023 International Workshop on the Cloud-Edge-IoT Continuum for Hyper-Distributed Applications and Services (CEICO)
5G and cloud computing are set out to address various business needs, often related to the deployment of IoT-enabled applications across the compute continuum. However, the provision of such hyper-distributed applications is far from trivial, due to various interoperability and convergence aspects…

Intelligent and Resource-Conserving Service Function Chain (SFC) Embedding

2023 Journal of Network and Systems Management
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) opens us great opportunities for network processing with higher resource efficiency and flexibility. In this respect, there is an increasing need for intelligent orchestration mechanisms, such that NFV can exploit its potential and live up to its promise.…

Unsupervised Deep Learning for Distributed Service Function Chain Embedding

2023 IEEE Access
Network Function Virtualization (NFV) has paved the way for the migration of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs) into multi-tenant datacenters, lowering the barrier for the introduction of new processing functionality into the network. Recent trends for resource orchestration across the entire compute…

Deterministic and Probabilistic P4-Enabled Lightweight In-Band Network Telemetry

2023 IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management
In-band network telemetry (INT), empowered by programmable dataplanes such as P4, comprises a viable approach to network monitoring and telemetry analysis. However, P4-INT as well as other existing frameworks for INT yield a substantial transmission overhead, which grows linearly with the number of…

Towards the Integration of TAPRIO-based Scheduling with Centralized TSN Control

2023 3rd International Workshop on Time-Sensitive and Deterministic Networking (TENSOR 2023) – IFIP Networking 2023
Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN) aspires to provide a solid underpinning for meeting latency guarantees across traffic classes with diverse requirements. Despite the emergence of various specifications from the TSN family of standards, there is a shortage of prototype implementations with support…
