We present the design and implementation aspects of a virtualized Performance Enhancing Proxy (vPEP), in a 5G compliant architecture involving the satellite as an alternate, additional backhaul link. The deployment of hybrid terrestrial-satellite configurations is realized through the vPEP agent, meant as a chain of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), enhancing protocol performance and/or bringing value-added services in the end-to-end path. To this end, we discuss a possible integration approach of the satellite link into the 5G service-based architecture, outlining key functional components. In addition, we present a preliminary evaluation study employing a vPEP embodying the QUIC protocol in a possible web-browsing, 5G optimized slice.

Abstract

We present the design and implementation aspects of a virtualized Performance Enhancing Proxy (vPEP), in a 5G compliant architecture involving the satellite as an alternate, additional backhaul link. The deployment of hybrid terrestrial-satellite configurations is realized through the vPEP agent, meant as a chain of Virtual Network Functions (VNFs), enhancing protocol performance and/or bringing value-added services in the end-to-end path. To this end, we discuss a possible integration approach of the satellite link into the 5G service-based architecture, outlining key functional components. In addition, we present a preliminary evaluation study employing a vPEP embodying the QUIC protocol in a possible web-browsing, 5G optimized slice.
