ULOOF: a User Level Online Offloading Framework for Mobile Edge Computing

Abstract : Mobile devices are equipped with limited processing power and battery charge. A mobile computation offloading framework is a software that provides better user experience in terms of computation time and energy consumption, also taking profit from edge computing facilities. This article presents User-Level Online Offloading Framework (ULOOF), a lightweight and efficient framework for mobile computation offloading. ULOOF is equipped with a decision engine that minimizes remote execution overhead, while not requiring any modification in the device's operating system. By means of real experiments with Android systems and simulations using large-scale data from a major cellular network provider, we show that ULOOF can offload up to 73% of computations, and improve the execution time by 50% while at the same time significantly reducing the energy consumption of mobile devices.
