Mobile edge computing (MEC) is a new computing paradigm, which provides computing support for resource-constrained user equipments (UEs). In this letter, we design an effective incentive framework to encourage MEC operators to provide computing service for UEs. The problem of jointly allocating communication and computing resources to maximize the revenue of MEC operators is studied. Based on auction theory, we design a multi-round iterative auction (MRIA) algorithm to solve the problem. Extensive simulations have been conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithm and it is shown that the proposed algorithm can significantly improve the overall revenue of MEC operators.
