Optimal Cloudlet Placement and User to
Cloudlet Allocation in Wireless Metropolitan
Abstract—Optimal Cloudlet Placement and User to
Cloudlet Allocation in Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks. Mobile applications are becoming increasingly computation-intensive, while the computing capability of portable mobile devices is limited. A powerful way to reduce the completion time of an application in a mobile device is to offload its tasks to nearby cloudlets, which consist of clusters of computers. Although there is a significant body of research in mobile cloudlet offloading technology, there has been very little attention paid to how cloudlets should be placed in a given network to optimize mobile application performance. In this paper we study cloudlet placement and mobile user allocation to the cloudlets in a wireless metropolitan area
network < Final Year Projects 2016 >.
