Abstract: 
fog radio access networks (F-RANs), in which the fog access points are equipped with communication, caching, and computing functionalities, have been anticipated as a promising architecture for enabling virtual reality (VR) applications in wireless networks. Although extensive research efforts have been devoted to designing efficient resource allocation strategies for realizing successful mobile VR delivery in the downlink, the equally important resource allocation problem of mobile VR delivery in the uplink has so far drawn little attention. In this work, we investigate a mobile VR F-RAN delivery framework, where both the uplink and downlink transmissions are considered. We first characterize the round-trip latency of the system, which reveals its dependence on the communication, caching, and computation resource allocations. Based on this information, we then propose a simple, yet efficient, algorithm to minimize the round-trip latency, while simultaneously satisfying the practical constraints on caching, computation capability, and transmission capacity in the uplink and downlink. Numerical results show that our proposed algorithm can effectively reduce the round-trip latency compared with various baselines and illustrate the impact of communication, caching, and computing resources on latency performance.
