Abstract

Mobile cloud computing alleviates the limitations of resource-constrained mobile devices by leveraging the cloud resources. Currently, software-level solutions, also known as computational offloading, migrate the cloud-based mobile applications at runtime to the cloud datacenter to optimize the application execution time. However, the application execution frameworks mainly focus on migrating the application without considering the various critical network-centric parameters, such as traffic load and mobility speed, in application migration decision. In this paper, we analyze the effect of network-centric parameters on the application migration process. The performance of the migration proce..
