ABOUT RECO

It is envisioned in the future that not only smartphones will connect to cellular networks, but also all kinds of different wearable devices, sensors, vehicles, home appliances, VR headsets, and robots etc. However, since the characteristics of these different devices differ largely, people argue that future 5G communication systems should be designed to elastically accommodate these different scenarios. We propose a reconfigurable core network called RECO that demonstrates how to implement customized virtual network entities efficiently to suit for different types of users with different characteristics.

Introduction

We propose a reconfigurable core network called RECO that demonstrates how to implement customized virtual network entities efficiently to suit for different types of users with different characteristics. We then implement a reconfigurable MME called RECO MME which verifies our proposed RECO architecture. Besides, we particularly focuses on the dynamic linking framework used in our RECO MME.
