Preferred Abstract (Original): 
Mobile (infrastructured or Ad-hoc) systems merge as a substitute for regular wired distributed systems. There are many issues that have to be resolved before the mobile system becomes a valid and acceptable substitute to the original wired distributed system, such as routing protocols, limited bandwidth and mobility issues. Research methodologies are classified into simulation, qualitative and quantitative and analytical approach. Quantitative and analytical approach is the best because it is used to get a closed form solution after defining the model of the system and system parameters clearly and correctly. Therefore, in this paper we have developed an analytical model to study the effect of different system parameters when using the infrastructured mobile system for distributed computing. In our model, we considered all system parameters such as host mobility, host speed, communication overhead, host distance from the originating node, checkpointing rate and checkpoin
