With recent advances in mobile communication technologies, more and
more people are accessing cloud computing systems using mobile
devices, such as smartphones and tablets. Unlike traditional mobile
computing systems with limited capabilities, mobile cloud computing
uses the powerful computing and storage resources available in the
cloud to provide cutting-edge multimedia and information services.
This book discusses the major research advances in mobile cloud
computing systems. Contributed chapters from leading experts in
this field cover different aspects of modeling, analysis, design,
optimization, and architecture of mobile cloud computing systems.
Advances in Mobile Cloud Computing Systems begins by discussing the
background, features, and available service models of mobile cloud
computing. It goes on to describe a mobile cloud computing system
with several third party cloud mobile media (CMM) services that
offers its services to a telecom operator. In this scenario, the
telecom operator acts as broker that can mix and interchange the
resources offered by the different CMM service providers.
Subsequent contributed chapters discuss such key research areas as
Energy-efficient task execution that reduces the energy consumption
in both mobile devices and the cloud Design and architecture of a
Proximity Cloud that delivers low-latency, bandwidth-efficient
end-user services with a global footprint Virtual mobile networks
in clouds that enable resource sharing between multiple mobile
network operators Software piracy control framework in mobile cloud
computing systems designed to prevent mobile application piracy
Dynamic configuration of cloud radio access networks (C-RANs) to
improve end-to-end TCP throughput performance in next generation
wireless networks The book includes many supporting illustrations
and tables along with a valuable set of references at the end of
each chapter. With this book, researchers and practitioners will be
well-equipped to advance the research and development in this
