Location-Aware Resource Allocation Algorithm in Satellite Ground Station Networks

06/23/2020 ∙ by Xiangqiang Gao, et al. ∙ 0

As per the increase in satellite number and variety, satellite ground station should be required to offer user services in a flexible and efficient manner. Network function virtualization (NFV) can provide a new paradigm to allocate network resources on demand for user services over the underlying network. In this paper, we investigate the virtualized network function (VNF) placement and routing traffic problem in satellite ground station networks. We formulate the problem of resource allocation as an integer linear programming (ILP) model and the objective is to minimize the link resource utilization and the number of servers used. Considering the information about satellite orbit fixation and mission planning, we propose location-aware resource allocation (LARA) algorithms based on Greedy and IBM CPLEX 12.10, respectively. The proposed LARA algorithm can assist in deploying VNFs and routing traffic flows by predicting the running conditions of user services. We evaluate the performance of our proposed LARA algorithm in three networks of Fat-Tree, BCube and VL2. Simulation results show that our proposed LARA algorithm performs better than that without prediction, and can effectively decrease the average resource utilization of satellite ground station networks.
