In the scope of Fog computing, novel optimization algorithms are also proposed to resolve the selection problems of when 5G mobile users should offload computing workload to Wi-Fi [19] and when Fog servers should cluster the nearby cloudlets for offloading the task of a mobile [20].
Use of cloudlets [9] to bring the content closer to the users is also gaining momentum.
We perform simulations on multimedia images and for this purpose, we changed the characteristics of the cloudlet class and modeled it according to our requirements.
On the other hand, in order to support the efficient and effective operation of each cloudlet deployed in WMAN, a certain amount of energy is necessary to be consumed by the computing nodes and the cooling systems in the cloudlets [11, 12].

Why it is as if my God, my great all-Father, were speaking to me from every flower and tree, every cloudlet that flecks the sky, every wandering breath of air that fans my brow.
Other areas discussed include energy-efficient task execution in mobile cloud computing, virtual mobile networks in clouds, modeling and analysis of a single-hop mobile cloudlet, cloud radio access networks, and software piracy control in mobile cloud computing systems.
One of Gary's former students, Pierre Benz, teams up with Edwin Blake on "Sharing the Cloudlet: Impression Management and Designing for Colocated Mobile Sharing." This article presents ideas centered on impression management, of content and identity, and on informing the design of colocated mobile technology, in this case experiments with cloudlet-based interactions on mobile devices.
The label 'object' employed in pattern (1) above is, in fact, shorthand for 'inanimate entities', as this category includes not only man-made objects such as bomblets, pielet and flatlets, but also natural phenomena such as droplet, cloudlet and wavelet.
