3 What is a Distributed Mobile Computing System 4 Mobile computing is associated with mobility of users, hardware, data and software in computer applications. 4 Specialized class of distributed computing systems where some nodes can move in physical and/or logical space, ad hoc connecting/ disconnecting while remaining part of a distributed system and perhaps participating in global computational activities

4 Mobile Computing Environment Mbps to Gbps Mobile GSM connection 9.6 kbps Home Base Node N j... Zone of Influence Wireless LAN Mbps Home Base Node N i... Zone of Influence 19.2-115 kbps Cellular Data
