Computation Offloading in Mobile Edge Computing
Mobile edge computing (MEC) is an emerging paradigm which pursues to provide better services by moving infrastructure-based cloud resources (e.g., computation, storage, bandwidth, and so on) to the edges of mobile networks. MEC is rapidly becoming a key technology of the fifth-generation (5G) mobile networks, which helps to achieve the key technical indicators of 5G business, such as ultra-low latency, ultra-high energy efficiency, and ultra-high reliability.
Computation offloading refers to that mobile users (MUs) send heavy computation tasks to edge servers (ESs) and receive the processed results from them. The goal of computation offloading is to minimize the total energy consumption or overall task execution time or both of them.
With the rapid development of mobile communications and the explosive usage of mobile devices carried by MUs, mobile Internet facilitates us with a pervasive and...
