Abstract

 Distributed Computing in 5G Mobile Networks is a potential requirement for certain applications that depends on low latency and information sharing through or with data information sources. Such applications may be observed as a distributed application. We present a tool and method to optimize the deployment of distributed applications, dividing it into Modules, in a 5G Mobile Network environment. To do so we apply an approximation algorithm for the Path Computation and Function Placement Problem described in [1]. We show that under certain circumstances it is beneficial to deploy parts of such applications in a Cloud Computing environment with Distributed Cloud resources at the Mobile Network Edge. We verify our findings with an example, an Augmented Reality application.
