With the proliferation of mobile applications, Mobile Cloud Computing (MCC) has been proposed to help mobile devices save energy and improve computation performance. To further improve the quality of service (QoS) of MCC, cloud servers can be deployed locally so that the latency is decreased. However, the computational resource of the local cloud is(More)
Base station (BS) sleeping operation is one of the effective ways to save energy consumption of cellular networks, but it may lead to longer delay to the customers. The fundamental question then arises: how much energy can be traded off by a tolerable delay? In this paper, we characterize the fundamental tradeoffs between total energy consumption and(More)
Base station (BS) sleeping is an effecting way to improve the energy-efficiency of cellular networks. Considering BS sleep mode operation under different scenarios, we focus on three wake-up policies: single vacation (SV) policy, multiple vacation (MV) policy and N policy. A hysteresis time is also considered to avoid frequent BS mode-changing operation. By(More)
In cyber-physical systems such as automobiles, measurement data from sensor nodes should be delivered to other consumer nodes such as actuators in a regular fashion. But, in practical systems over unreliable media such as wireless, it is a significant challenge to guarantee small enough inter-delivery times for different clients with heterogeneous channel(More)
Base station (BS) sleeping operation is one of the effective ways to save energy, but it may lead to longer delay to the customers. In order to evaluate the tradeoffs between energy consumption and customer delay, we model the BS sleep mode operation as an N-policy M/G/1 queue with setup and closedown times, where the BS enters sleep mode if no customers(More)
A problem of much current practical interest is the replacement of the wiring infrastructure connecting approximately 200 sensor and actuator nodes in automobiles by an access point. This is motivated by the considerable savings in automobile weight, simplification of manufacturability, and future upgradability. A key issue is how to schedule the nodes on(More)
Mobile edge computing is a novel technique to offer cloud-based computation offloading services to mobile users with short delay. However, the Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) of the edge cloud are generally different from the CSPs of remote Internet cloud. Considering the competition between the heterogeneous clouds, we study the optimal provisioning of the(More)
