    Yunye Wan1, Peng Chen2, Yunni Xia1,*, Yong Ma3, Dongge Zhu4, Xu Wang5, Hui Liu6, Weiling Li7, Xianhua Niu2, Lei Xu8, Yumin Dong9

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.2, pp. 1997-2017, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.048723

    Abstract Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is a promising technology that provides on-demand computing and efficient storage services as close to end users as possible. In an MEC environment, servers are deployed closer to mobile terminals to exploit storage infrastructure, improve content delivery efficiency, and enhance user experience. However, due to the limited capacity of edge servers, it remains a significant challenge to meet the changing, time-varying, and customized needs for highly diversified content of users. Recently, techniques for caching content at the edge are becoming popular for addressing the above challenges. It is capable of filling… More >

    Computing Resource Allocation for Blockchain-Based Mobile Edge Computing

    Wanbo Zhang1, Yuqi Fan1, Jun Zhang1, Xu Ding2,*, Jung Yoon Kim3,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.140, No.1, pp. 863-885, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2024.047295

    Abstract Users and edge servers are not fully mutually trusted in mobile edge computing (MEC), and hence blockchain can be introduced to provide trustable MEC. In blockchain-based MEC, each edge server functions as a node in both MEC and blockchain, processing users’ tasks and then uploading the task related information to the blockchain. That is, each edge server runs both users’ offloaded tasks and blockchain tasks simultaneously. Note that there is a trade-off between the resource allocation for MEC and blockchain tasks. Therefore, the allocation of the resources of edge servers to the blockchain and the… More >

    Energy Efficiency Maximization in Mobile Edge Computing Networks via IRS assisted UAV Communications

    Ying Zhang1, Weiming Niu2, Supu Xiu1,3, Guangchen Mu3,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.2, pp. 1865-1884, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.030114

    Abstract In this paper, we investigate the energy efficiency maximization for mobile edge computing (MEC) in intelligent reflecting surface (IRS) assisted unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) communications. In particular, UAV can collect the computing tasks of the terrestrial users and transmit the results back to them after computing. We jointly optimize the users’ transmitted beamforming and uploading ratios, the phase shift matrix of IRS, and the UAV trajectory to improve the energy efficiency. The formulated optimization problem is highly non-convex and difficult to be solved directly. Therefore, we decompose the original problem into three sub-problems. We first More >

    Multi-Agent Deep Reinforcement Learning for Efficient Computation Offloading in Mobile Edge Computing

    Tianzhe Jiao, Xiaoyue Feng, Chaopeng Guo, Dongqi Wang, Jie Song*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.76, No.3, pp. 3585-3603, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.040068

    Abstract Mobile-edge computing (MEC) is a promising technology for the fifth-generation (5G) and sixth-generation (6G) architectures, which provides resourceful computing capabilities for Internet of Things (IoT) devices, such as virtual reality, mobile devices, and smart cities. In general, these IoT applications always bring higher energy consumption than traditional applications, which are usually energy-constrained. To provide persistent energy, many references have studied the offloading problem to save energy consumption. However, the dynamic environment dramatically increases the optimization difficulty of the offloading decision. In this paper, we aim to minimize the energy consumption of the entire MEC system… More >

    IRS Assisted UAV Communications against Proactive Eavesdropping in Mobile Edge Computing Networks

    Ying Zhang1,*, Weiming Niu2, Leibing Yan1

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.138, No.1, pp. 885-902, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.029234

    Abstract In this paper, we consider mobile edge computing (MEC) networks against proactive eavesdropping. To maximize the transmission rate, IRS assisted UAV communications are applied. We take the joint design of the trajectory of UAV, the transmitting beamforming of users, and the phase shift matrix of IRS. The original problem is strong non-convex and difficult to solve. We first propose two basic modes of the proactive eavesdropper, and obtain the closed-form solution for the boundary conditions of the two modes. Then we transform the original problem into an equivalent one and propose an alternating optimization (AO) More >

    A Hybrid Heuristic Service Caching and Task Offloading Method for Mobile Edge Computing

    Yongxuan Sang, Jiangpo Wei*, Zhifeng Zhang, Bo Wang

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.76, No.2, pp. 2483-2502, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.040485

    Abstract Computing-intensive and latency-sensitive user requests pose significant challenges to traditional cloud computing. In response to these challenges, mobile edge computing (MEC) has emerged as a new paradigm that extends the computational, caching, and communication capabilities of cloud computing. By caching certain services on edge nodes, computational support can be provided for requests that are offloaded to the edges. However, previous studies on task offloading have generally not considered the impact of caching mechanisms and the cache space occupied by services. This oversight can lead to problems, such as high delays in task executions and invalidation… More >

    Edge Cloud Selection in Mobile Edge Computing (MEC)-Aided Applications for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Services

    Dae-Young Kim1, SoYeon Lee2, MinSeung Kim2, Seokhoon Kim1,*

    Computer Systems Science and Engineering, Vol.47, No.2, pp. 2049-2060, 2023, DOI:10.32604/csse.2023.040473

    Abstract In many IIoT architectures, various devices connect to the edge cloud via gateway systems. For data processing, numerous data are delivered to the edge cloud. Delivering data to an appropriate edge cloud is critical to improve IIoT service efficiency. There are two types of costs for this kind of IoT network: a communication cost and a computing cost. For service efficiency, the communication cost of data transmission should be minimized, and the computing cost in the edge cloud should be also minimized. Therefore, in this paper, the communication cost for data transmission is defined as… More >

    Jixun Gao1,2, Bingyi Hu2, Jialei Liu3,4,*, Huaichen Wang5, Quanzhen Huang1, Yuanyuan Zhao6

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.37, No.1, pp. 1-16, 2023, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2023.036890

    Abstract Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is proposed to solve the needs of Internet of Things (IoT) users for high resource utilization, high reliability and low latency of service requests. However, the backup virtual machine is idle when its primary virtual machine is running normally, which will waste resources. Overbooking the backup virtual machine under the above circumstances can effectively improve resource utilization. First, these virtual machines are deployed into slots randomly, and then some tasks with cooperative relationship are offloaded to virtual machines for processing. Different deployment locations have different resource utilization and average service response… More >

    Vertical Federated Learning Based on Consortium Blockchain for Data Sharing in Mobile Edge Computing

    Yonghao Zhang1,3, Yongtang Wu2, Tao Li1, Hui Zhou1,3, Yuling Chen1,2,*

    CMES-Computer Modeling in Engineering & Sciences, Vol.137, No.1, pp. 345-361, 2023, DOI:10.32604/cmes.2023.026920

    Abstract The data in Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) contains tremendous market value, and data sharing can maximize the usefulness of the data. However, certain data is quite sensitive, and sharing it directly may violate privacy. Vertical Federated Learning (VFL) is a secure distributed machine learning framework that completes joint model training by passing encrypted model parameters rather than raw data, so there is no data privacy leakage during the training process. Therefore, the VFL can build a bridge between data demander and owner to realize data sharing while protecting data privacy. Typically, the VFL requires a… More >
