"This thesis focuses on the development of efficient data transfer mechanism among mobile devices using Mobile cloud computing paradigm. Mobile cloud computing is coupling of mobile computing and cloud computing. In the Mobile cloud computing paradigm, users connect to cloud service providers over the Internet and leverage the cloud resources to perform their processing, storage and communication tasks. In this thesis, the focus is on communication tasks among mobile devices performed using Mobile cloud computing paradigm.

Communication or data sharing among mobile devices is often limited by proximity of the devices. This limitation can be removed by employing Mobile cloud computing paradigm wherein each physical mobile device has a corresponding virtual machine in the cloud servers. All the computation and communication tasks can be offloaded to the virtual machines in the cloud retaining only a thin client in the physical device to display results. The exchange of data or communication between mobile devices is done through the corresponding virtual machines in the cloud.

In this work, we designed a layered architecture involving mobile devices, access points and cloud server together for efficiency. We also proposed pre-distribution scheme based on this architecture for efficient data sharing among potential users with supporting data access mechanism, update propagation mechanism and cache replacement mechanisms. We also performed complexity analysis for data access using the proposed architecture and scheme. Finally, simulated the proposed architecture and scheme with actual devices and verified the efficiency of the scheme."--Abstract, page iv.
