Centre for Mobile Cloud Computing Research (C4MCCR)
This is an official website of the Centre for Mobile Cloud Computing Research (C4MCCR). 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. Its establishment was mainly to spur research on augmentation of the potential of mobile devices in delivering seamless mobile applications execution.
- The main objective of this website is to serve as a medium between researchers and public, broadcasting information related to the laboratory activities and achievements.
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 focuses 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-Doc fellow, and 13 PhD students. The research topics and interests of the MCC group members can be found at their respect member pages here.
