Centre for Mobile Cloud Computing Research (C4MCCR)
This is an official website of the Centre for Mobile Cloud Computing Research. The C4MCCR is one of the most vibrant MCC research communities in the world, established in 2010 under the High Impact Research Grant, The Ministry of Higher Education, Malaysia. The main objective of this website is to serve as a medium between researchers and public to broadcast information relevant to the lab.
Mobile Cloud Computing is a new interesting area of research. It has received a lot of attention from public and researchers due to its importance. The main focus of the research are three main components - Data Center, Wireless Technology and Smart Phones. Smart Phones are now being accepted in all walks of life and the marketshare always show plus sign. However, Smart Phones inherit limited computational power to run resource-intensive applications. The massive data output from Data Center seemed so incongruent to the processing power of Smart Phones. Thus, the main purpose of this group is to mitigate the incongruence of both entities so that unrestricted mobility and functionality can be delivered anywhere, anytime, from any device.
- MCC Is the most recent mobile computing technology that uses cloud computing technology to achieve 2 main goals:
- Conserve native resources, especially battery while performing intensive application/computation
- Augment mobiles’ computing power to enable them perform tasks and run computations that could not be otherwise done. Cloud-based mobile devices can perform infinite computation using infinite elastic cloud-based resources.
Currently, C4MCCR has 16 active research members, including the main PI, two co-PIs, three post-docs, 10 full time PhD candidates and 3 full time Master by Research candidates who are enthusiastically pursuing their research and striving to publish their findings in high impact journal papers of Q1 ranked journals (according to thomson reuters Web of Science). Q1 paper is considered the top 25% works that is published in the top 25% journals of the domain with highest impact factor.
If you are a hard-working and research-dedicated fellow and interested to take part in this vibrant research group, kindly write in to the principle investigator, Professor Dr. Abdullah Bin Gani for possible position. Successful candidates are provided with lucrative monthly allowance and other perks. Please refer to Join Us/Opportunities for further info.
As of March 2014, C4MCCR has successfully deployed its own Hybrid Mobile Cloudlet based on OpenStack Cloud Operating System. This Cloudlet shall be used for experimentation and mobile cloud development purposes. Mobile cloud researchers are welcome to request for information relating deployment and possible collaboration.
