To guarantee an efficient and high-performance environment for mobile devices to perform offloading with low end-to-end delay, it is important to ensure no network policies are violated. In this paper, we explore the simultaneous, dynamic virtual machine (VM) and policy consolidation, and formulate the Policy-VM Latency-aware Consolidation problem for Mobile Edge Computing, which is shown to be NP-Hard. We propose the PL-Edge, an efficient scheme to jointly consolidate network policies and virtual machines for mobile edge computing to reduce communication end-to-end delays among devices and virtual machines. Our simulation results demonstrate that the proposed PL-Edge can significantly reduces policy-flows end-to-end delay by nearly 45% while adhering strictly to the requirements of network policies.
