Overcoming mobile cloud computing challenges with distributed apps

Mobile cloud computing solutions hold the promise of delivering corporate applications to employees on any device in any location, but for now, latency issues stand in the way. The answer to increasing efficiency in the mobile cloud may be in changing the way apps are served up. "Mobile cloud computing is unique in its challenges," said Renaud Larsen, chief architect for cloud at Juniper Networks. "The mobile ecosystem has to traverse many complex layers, each of which adds network latency and transmission delay. In addition, the cloud allows users to swap devices and retain access to information—this is a disruptive development, and means that cloud apps need to cover the whole cross-device mobile infrastructure." Networking pros face three key mobile cloud computing challenges: Lowering network latency to meet application and code offload interactivity. Increasing network bandwidth for faster data transfer between the cloud and devices. Providing adaptive monitoring of network conditions to optimise network and device costs ...
