The advantage of computational resources in edge computing near the data source has kindled growing interest in delay-sensitive Internet of Things (IoT) applications. However, the benefit of the edge server is limited by the uploading and downloading links between end-users and edge servers when these end-users seek computational resources from edge servers. The scenario becomes more severe when the user-end's devices are in the shaded region resulting in low uplink/downlink quality. In this… Expand
