How We Use Akka To Optimize Your Device's Wireless Network

Today’s cellular wireless networks are ubiquitous, massive, and complex. Multi-dimensional optimization of a deployed network has largely been a manual and expensive process, but it is increasingly necessary in order to achieve the best possible user experiences and network efficiencies. Emerging SON (Self Organizing Network) concepts are being promulgated by network operators as a way to improve network performance automatically while simultaneously reducing the cost.
At AirHop we have designed a platform and a number of optimization algorithms collectively called eSON. The platform tagline is “massively scalable, flexible deployment of SON algorithms for wireless networks.” This talk focuses on how we use the Akka toolkit as the basis for the eSON platform. I describe how Akka is an excellent choice for implementing the eSON architecture, and what features of Akka we are leveraging to achieve our goals, including modules in the Akka toolkit such as Akka Cluster, Akka HTTP, Akka Distributed Data, and Akka Streams.
