In the near future, it is expected that mobile cloud computing (MCC) will benefit enterprises by improving network manageability and maintenance, as well as end users with respect to sharing computing resources. For this purpose, this paper proposes self-organized cooperative 5G Radio Access Networks (RANs) with intelligent elastic optical backhauls. Effective joint optical and radio resource management is implemented in order to satisfy the stringent delay requirements of the emerging MCC applications and increase the overall cell throughput. In addition, spatiotemporal data of the cellular network are observed, analyzed, and stored constantly during the operation of the network. These data provide the capability of dynamic adjustment to channel conditions, as well as effective structuring of the RANs. The proposed techniques increase the Signal-to-Interference Ratio (SINR), and enable future networks to meet the demands of MCC, as they are able to handle a large number of small packets in an efficient manner.
