Mobile devices have become an integral part of our daily lives. Applications running on these devices may avail storage and compute resources from the cloud(s). Further, a mobile device may also connect to heterogeneous access networks (HANs) such as WiFi and LTE to provide ubiquitous network connectivity to mobile applications. These devices have limited resources (compute, storage and battery) that may lead to servicedisruptions. In this context, mobile cloud computing enables offloading of computing and storage to the cloud. However, applications running on mobile devices using clouds and HANs are prone to unpredictable cloud workloads, network congestion and handoffs. To run these applications efficiently the mobile device requires the best possible cloud and network resources while roaming in HANs. This paper proposes, develops and validates a novel system called M2C2 which supports mechanismsfor: i.) multihoming, ii.) cloud and network probing, and iii.) cloudand network selection. We built a prototype system and performed extensive experimentation to validate our proposed M2C2. Our results analysis shows that the proposed system supports mobility efficiently in mobile cloud computing.
