    [BibTeX] [Abstract]
    Encoding multimedia streams of video calls is a very compute-intense task that significantly decreases battery lifetime of mobile phones. This paper introduces an approach to reduce power consumption of mobile phones by offloading video encoding efforts from mobile devices to external services. These services are hosted on servers co-located with cellular base stations. The paper describes how these services are integrated into the existing mobile network architecture and presents a communication protocol for negotiating offloading settings. First measurement results indicate that power consumption of mobile devices is reduced by approximately 13\%.

    [BibTeX] [Abstract]
    Mobile Edge Computing proposes co-locating computing and storage resources at base stations of cellular networks. It is seen as a promising technique to alleviate utilization of the mobile core and to reduce latency for mobile end users. Due to the fact that Mobile Edge Computing is a novel approach not yet deployed in real-life networks, recent work discusses merely general and non-technical ideas and concepts. This paper introduces a taxonomy for Mobile Edge Computing applications and analyzes chances and limitations from a technical point of view. Application types which profit from edge deployment are identified and discussed. Furthermore, these applications are systematically classified based on technical metrics.
