Telecommunication industry has experienced a major breakthrough in the last few decades due to the immense development in information technology. Ubiquitous connectivity, expeditious increase in the number of low cost yet powerful smart devices and quantum leap in social networking are posing new challenges to cope up with the current as well as future requirements. While substantial amount of work has been done in this context, particularly on cooperative and cognitive networks, the very approach has certain limitations and shortcomings. The three characteristic challenges are enhance system throughput, dynamic environment adaptability and productive utilization of the available resources. Here we present mobile cloud, a novel yet simplistic system model that employs cognitive and cooperative strategies to address all of these three challenges. The system exploits the short range link to establish a small social network among the nearby devices, adapts according to environment and uses various cooperation strategies to obtain efficient utilization of resources. Lastly, we implemented an experimental mobile cloud and attentively assessed its performance with varying parameters and legacy approach used in the similar context. The analysis provided sound understanding of system model compliance with the primary objectives as well as with the future networks.
