by Juan Manuel Rodriguez, Alejandro Zunino, Marcelo Campo
International Journal of Web and Grid Services (IJWGS), Vol. 7, No. 1, 2011


Abstract: Mobile device capabilities have been steadily increasing in the past years. Therefore, mobile Grids potential benefits have encouraged research on this topic. Researchers have identified several issues, such as energy consumption and limited resources, that steam from using mobile devices because they are small computers that run on battery and can move outside of the wireless coverage area. This paper analyses these issues discusses proposed solutions to them in the different Grid abstraction levels from Grid fabric layer to Grid user application layer. Finally, we propose a taxonomy that considers the use of mobile devices and discuss future research opportunities.
