The ultra-dense network (UDN) based on mobile edge computing (MEC) is an important technology, which can achieve the low-latency of 5G communications and enhance the quality of user experience. However, how to improve the task offloading efficiency is a hot topic of UDN under the constraint on the limited wireless resources. In this article, we propose a heuristic task offloading algorithm HTOA to optimize the delay and energy consumption of offloading tasks in UDN. Firstly, a convex

Followed by, the problem of joint channel allocation and user upload power control is solved by the greedy strategy and golden section method, which aims to optimization the delay and energy consumption of task upload data. Compared with the random task offloading algorithm, numerical simulations show that the algorithm HTOA can effectively reduce the delay and energy consumption of task offloading, and perform better as the number of users increases.
