In fog-radio access networks (F-RANs), the loadings of backhaul is the bottleneck to fully explore the potential of cloud computing capability, which provide abundant computation resources to execute the computation tasks. In this paper, the performance of computation offloading F-RANs is studied to keep a balance between the tradeoff between the costs and the gains of different computation task processing modes. First, we focus on an opportunistic computation of-(loading strategy in F-RANs, and the computation offloading probability is analyzed based on a stochastic geometry-based model. Second, the computation offloading procedure in F-RANs can be modeled as a Jackson network of queueing system. A closed-form expression of average delay performance is derived, and the global optimal solution of the ratio of computation tasks handled by the cloud computing center is also provided to minimize the average processing delay. Finally, the simulation results are shown to verify the accuracy of analytical results and evaluate the performance gains of hybrid computation offloading in F-RANs.
