The communication among people increasing day by day through mobile devices and also the usage of various applications related to social, e-commerce, education, health care system also increased. These applications require enough processor and storage to run successfully but mobile devices require more processing capacity to run resource intensive applications. The combination of both mobile cloud and cloud computing can create new technology mobile cloud computing (MCC). Generally, mobile users are exhausted with limited resources of mobile devices such as shortage of battery lifetime, processing capacity and storage. Cloud computing is an emerging technology and also make available enough resources to increase mobile battery lifetime. There are numerous challenges in mobile cloud computing which are required to address with the help advance technology. The data security ,data services, service reliability and service privacy also an significant issues in
MCC. The novel technology called cloud-let in MCC developed to address latency and power consumption problems. Simulation tools in MCC require to create mobile cloud computing environment.
