Tiivistelmä

Motivated by the unprecedented penetration of mobile communications technology, this work carefully brings into perspective the challenges related to heterogeneous communications and offloaded computation operating in cases of fault-tolerant computation, computing, and caching. We specifically focus on the emerging augmented reality applications that require reliable delegation of the computing and caching functionality to proximate resource-rich devices. The corresponding mathematical model proposed in this work becomes of value to assess system-level reliability in cases where one or more nearby collaborating nodes become temporarily unavailable. Our produced analytical and simulation results corroborate the asymptotic insensitivity of the stationary reliability of the system in question (under the "fast" recovery of its elements) to the type of the "repair" time distribution, thus supporting the fault-tolerant system operation.
