Abstract

Our work is based on offloading computationally intensive application components to more powerful servers in the access network. Ideally, this “load sharing” between a portable device and more powerful machines would occur transparent to the user, at runtime, taking into account the currently available resources in the execution environment. To realize this goal, a support infrastructure is required to monitor the available resources, to decide how best to utilize these resources, and that deals with user mobility. The following sections will motivate our approach, introduce a suitable architecture, and explain what experience we collected to date in realizing various components of this architecture.
