IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications (IEEE INFOCOM) took place from 20 – 23 May in Vancouver, Canada. IEEE INFOCOM is a top-ranked conference on networking in the research community. Consortium member Politecnico di Torino participated in INFOCOM with two papers presented at the main conference.  

“OREO: O-RAN intElligence Orchestration of xApp-based network services” introduces OREO, an Open Radio Access Network (O-RAN) xApp orchestrator, designed to maximize the number of offered services. OREO’s key idea is that services can share xApps whenever they correspond to semantically equivalent functions, and the xApp output is of sufficient quality to fulfill the service requirements. The paper is available here.

“Resource-aware Deployment of Dynamic DNNs over Multi-tiered Interconnected Systems” tackles the problem of allocating sections of Modern dynamic deep neural networks (DNN) with early exits to the nodes of the mobile-edge-cloud system. By envisioning a 3-stage graph-modeling approach, it represents the possible options for splitting the DNN and deploying the DNN blocks on the multi-tiered network, embedding both the system constraints and the application requirements in a convenient and efficient way. The paper is available here.
