行動邊緣運算(MEC)為下一代行動網路5G的主要功能之一,5G行動基地台將搭配具備運算能力的邊緣伺服器(Edge server),其主要目的為提供極低延遲的應用服務,屆時某些需低延遲的運算任務將不再傳到距離較遠的雲端伺服器(Cloud server)做運算,而是傳到距離較近的邊緣伺服器做運算。
現有的文獻皆以兩層為主要探討對象,且在進行任務卸載時(Offloading)只考慮自身的利益做決策,但相同的任務在不同的裝置可能會重複發生,若只單看自身利益將可能造成相同的任務在不同的裝置上重複運算,導致延遲時間更長。基於上述原因,我們在有快取及合作的邊緣伺服器架構下提出一個以全系統利益的增益基礎合作卸載決策(Gain-based Collaborative Offloading, GCO),裝置將任務卸載至邊緣伺服器且邊緣伺服器快取其任務結果,當有相同任務請求時,邊緣伺服器可以直接將快取資料回傳,降低延遲時間。我們的增益概念為評估卸載到邊緣伺服器是否可以減少相同任務重複計算的次數藉以降低平均延遲。

Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is one of the main functions of the next generation mobile network 5G. The 5G mobile base station will be equipped with edge server with computing power. Its main purpose is to provide application services with ultra-low latency. At that time, some tasks that require low latency will not be transmitted to the cloud server for computation but will be transmitted to the edge server that is closer.
The existing paper is mainly based on two-tier, and when the task is offloading, only the gain of the individual is considered. However, the same task may happen repeatedly on different UEs. If UE only considers its own gain when offloading that may cause the same task to repeat the computation on different UEs, resulting in longer delays for the whole system. For the above reasons, we propose a Gain-based Collaborative Offloading (GCO) in cache-enabled collaborative MEC. When the task is offloaded to the edge server, the edge server can cache the task result. When the same task is accessed, the cache can be directly returned, reducing the delay. Our gain concept is to evaluate whether the offload to the edge server can reduce the number of repeated computations of the same task to reduce the average delay.
During the offloading, the GCO will consider the gain of the whole system determines whether to offload or not. If UEs covered by the same edge server or the neighboring edge server with high access probability to access the same task, offload to the edge server can reduce the same computation, thus reducing overall delay. Simulation results show that GCO can reduce the delay by 35% compared to the traditional two-tier offloading decision.
