With the fast development of mobile edge computing (MEC), user equipments (UEs) can enjoy much higher experience than before by offloading the tasks to its close edge cloud. In this paper, we assume there are several edge clouds, each of which has limited resource. We aim to maximize the number of offloaded tasks and minimize the energy consumption of all the UEs and edge clouds, by selecting the best edge cloud for each UE to offload. We formulate the problem as a mixed-integer non-convex optimization, which is difficult to solve in general. By transforming this problem into a minimum-cost maximum-flow (MCMF) problem, we can solve it efficiently. The simulation shows that our proposed algorithm has better performance and lower complexity than the conventional solutions.
