The article is dedicated to the development of cloudlet based mobile cloud computing (MCC) to address the restrictions that occur in the resources of mobile devices (energy consumption, computing and memory resources, etc.) and the delays occurring in communication channels. The architecture offered in the article more efficiently ensures the demand of mobile devices for computing and storage and removes the latency that occur in the network. At the same time, the tasks related to energy saving and eliminating delays in communication channels by solving the problems that require complex computing and memory resources in the cloudlets located nearby the user were outlined in the article.
