University of Glasgow signed an agreement with Rakuten Mobile

Policy Indications

University of Glasgow computing scientists have signed an agreement with Rakuten Mobile, Inc. to carry out collaborative research in the field of edge computing. Based on the agreement, Rakuten Mobile will provide financial and other support to a post-doctoral research assistant and two PhD students of the university’s School of Computing Science for 24 months and 42 months respectively and carry out collaborative research on edge computing, specifically on monitoring models and future transport protocols.

The research will be led by University of Glasgow senior lecturers Dr. Colin Perkins and Dr. Jeremy Singer. The aim of the research is to prototype next generation edge management tools to simplify the operation of large-scale edge compute infrastructure, as found in 5G networks and beyond, and the services that operate upon them, making it possible to realize highly secure, optimized, low latency communications.

Through this collaborative research with the university, Rakuten Mobile aims to address technical challenges related to effective management of edge compute resources and low- latency traffic; key drivers for 5G infrastructure and services. The new approaches will provide a reliable framework for the future, on which effective and manageable current and future services can be built.
