Job Description

Date: Nov 7, 2018

Job Summary:

At Ericsson Packet Core we’re developing 4G and 5G core network products. With us, you’ll be part of the development of mobile connectivity, enabling all the mobile internet services we use daily. We enable millions of simultaneous connected mobile users and IoT devices, handling huge amounts of data at Gbit speeds. Our products are deployed in the cloud using VMs and containers.

 

Performance is highly dependent on message transfer efficiency between microservices in cloud native application systems. For a telecommunication cloud native application with strict requirements on e.g. latency and jitter, message transfer efficiency becomes even more crucial. This thesis aims to investigate and explore different cloud message transfer systems in order to find the optimal solution for a cloud native telecommunication application.

 

The work will include:
• Investigating the state of the art in the area of IPC/RPC mechanism for cloud native
• Exploring different IPC/RPC solutions for microservice architecture to efficiently connect microservices across data centers
• Identifying suitable candidate framework with respect to characteristics of telco application such as delay, jitter, performance, and etc for further analysis
• Development of a test application for basis of performance measurements
• Incorporating message transfer mechanism into the test application
• Doing measurements on the selected framework under different traffic model and configurations

 

Student Profile

• Student aiming for a B.S.c/M.Sc. or equivalent and with a strong interest in software development
• Programming skills and familiarity with the Linux environment
• C/C++ and network knowledge is mandatory
• Some knowledge about virtualization, containers and Linux is a merit

 

We will support you throughout the thesis, and you'll have access Ericsson's tools and expertise.

We hope that a well-executed thesis will be the start of a long relationship between you and Ericsson.
