Abstract

Disclosed is a system to harness the unused computing power of idle mobile devices (e.g. cell phones) by transforming the mobile devices to computing nodes on a grid computing system, creating a Mobile Network-based Grid Computing System. The employment of mobile devices as nodes is a novel concept introduced in this disclosure. This document conceptualizes the architecture for such a mobile network based grid computing system.
