Over the past years the use of digital devices has increased and home networks continue to grow in size and complexity. By the use of virtualized residential gateways advanced functionality can be moved away from the home by extending the customers edge network to the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and thereby decrease the administrative burden for the home user. By employing edge computing and cloud applications at the operator by virtualizing residential gateways instead of using physical devices creates new challenges. This paper is looking at how the choice of virtualization technology impacts performance by investigating operating system level virtualization in contrast to full virtualization for use in virtualized residential gateways. Results show that container based virtualization uses fewer resources in terms of disk, memory, and processor in virtualized residential gateways.
