The combination of mobile communications and cloud computing are growing immensely popular. Application designers and architects use cloud technology advantages to deliver data and information to mobile devices as swiftly and seamlessly as possible. However, a critical aspect in this scenario is the factor of routing. Complex routing techniques can use up a lot of energy. Coupled with an increasing number of cloud data centers, this has the potential to leave a negative impact on their environment. An efficient routing model can help lower carbon emissions in the long run. Most existing routing methods involve shortest path routing to ease congestion in mobile networks.
