Abstract

The present work investigates the potential offered by Network Function Virtualization (NFV) in the automation of deployment and configuration operations for mobile networks. This thesis provides the description of an experimental framework realized with open-source tools conceived for integration of a 4G network into a virtual infrastructure, making use of the standardized architecture and interfaces provided by the NFV model. Thereafter, the management mechanisms made available by the framework and the implemented solutions for network automation are outlined. Subsequently, integration of Multi-access Edge Computing (MEC) services into the aforementioned framework has been considered, carrying out a study on efficient content delivery through an application located at the edge of the network. Procedures have been conceived for automatic activation and configuration of the edge services, responding to a user performance improvement demand, and a proof of concept of the system is provided, demonstrating the NFV and MEC integration feasibility and the advantages of leveraging the edge computing model for data communications.
