Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) is an important and effective platform to offload the computational services of modern mobile applications, and has gained tremendous attention from various research communities. For delay and resource constrained mobile devices, the important issues include: 1) minimization of the service latency; 2) optimal revenue maximization; 3) high quality-of-service (QoS) requirement to offload the computational service offloading. To address the above issues, an adaptive service offloading scheme is designed to provide the maximum revenue and service utilization to MEC. Unlike most of the existing works, we consider both the delay-tolerant and delay-constraint services in order to achieve the optimized service latency and revenue. Furthermore, we consider the different priorities to prioritize the edge services for optimal service offloading. We formulate the proposed scheme mathematically. Simulation results are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed adaptive service offloading scheme over other existing state-of-the-art solutions, in terms of service latency, utility value, revenue and utilization. ...
