It is clear that 5G network resources would be consumed by heavy data traffic owing to increased mobility, slicing, and layered/distributed storage system architecture. The problem is elevated when multiple node failures are repaired to address service quality requirements. Typical approaches include individual or cooperative data regeneration to efficiently utilize the available bandwidth. It is observed that storage systems of 5G and beyond technologies shall have a multi–layer architecture in which base stations (BS) would be present. Moreover, communication with each layer would be subject to various communication costs and link constraints. Under limited BS assistance and cooperation, the trade-off between storage per node and communication bandwidth has been established. In this trade–off, two operating points, namely minimum storage, and bandwidth regeneration are particularly important. In this study, we first identify the optimal number of BS use at the minimum storage regeneration point. An explicit code construction is provided subsequently for the exact minimum storage regeneration whereby each layer may help the repair process subject to a communication link constraint.
