Abstract

In this paper, we investigate the energy-efficient multi-user mobile-edge computing offloading problem in massive MIMO enabled HetNets, where the CPU-cycle frequency of mobile devices, uplink power control, computational task offloading ratio and uplink transmission duration are jointly optimized. The problem is formulated as minimizing the energy consumption of all mobile devices while satisfying the maximum latency requirement. Specifically, to address this non-convex problem, a low-complexity algorithm is proposed relied on alternating optimization, where we address the joint computational task offloading ratio and uplink transmission duration optimization problem and the uplink power control problem iteratively. Besides, the effectiveness and convergence of the proposed iterative algorithm are analytically studied. Numerical results demonstrate that our proposed algorithm consumes less energy compared to local computing and full uploading schemes, and the application of massive MIMO in HetNets helps to reduce energy consumption of mobile devices.
