Abstract: This paper proposes a next generation ubiquitous converged infrastructure to support Cloud and mobile Cloud computing services. The proposed infrastructure facilitates interconnection of fixed and mobile end users with computational resources through a heterogeneous network integrating optical metro and wireless access networks. To satisfy the low-latency requirements of content-rich mobile applications, a novel stochastic virtual infrastructure planning model that takes a holistic approach considering jointly the network and computational resources is presented. Our modelling results identify trends and trade-offs related to end-to-end service delay, resource requirements and energy consumption levels of the infrastructure across the various technology domains under traffic uncertainty.
