A Review on Wireless Grid Computing

S. S. Manvi and M. N. Birje

Abstract—Grid Computing is a concept, a network, a work in progress, part hype and part reality, and it is increasingly capturing the attention of the computing community. It uses clusters of personal computers, servers or other machines. They link together to tackle complex calculations. In part, grid computing lets companies harness their unused computing power, or processing cycles, to create a type of supercomputer. Wireless grids extend the capability of grid computing to wireless devices. The number of users using laptops, PDAs, cell phones, and other wireless devices is increasing leading to more networked wireless devices, and creating a vast collective potential of unexploited resources. Wireless grid computing with its model of coordinated resource sharing may provide a way to utilize such resources that are normally distributed throughout a grid. We may have Gridnet in the future as we have Internet today. This paper presents a state-of-the-art review of wireless grid computing.

Index Terms—Grid computing, Wireless grid computing, Grid standards.
