Pushing computation, control and storage into the "cloud" has been a key
trend in networking in the past decade. Over-dependence on the cloud,
however, indicates that availability and fault tolerance issues in the
cloud would directly impact millions of end-users. Indeed, the cloud is
now "descending" to the network edge and often diffused among the client
devices in both mobile and wireline networks. The cloud is becoming the
Empowered by the latest chips, radios, and sensors, each client device
today is powerful in computation, in storage, in sensing and in
communication. Yet client devices are still limited in battery power,
global view of the network, and mobility support. Most interestingly,
the collection of many clients in a crowd presents a highly distributed,
under-organized, and possibly dense network. Further, wireless networks
is increasingly used locally, e.g. intra-building, intra-vehicle, and
personal body-area networks; and data generated locally is increasingly
consumed locally.
Fog Network presents an architecture that uses one or a collaborative
multitude of end-user clients or near-user edge devices to carry out
storage, communication, computation, and control in a network.
It is an architecture that will support the Internet of Things,
heterogeneous 5G mobile services, and home and personal area networks.
Fog Networking leverages past experience in sensor networks, P2P and
MANET research, and incorporates the latest advances in devices, network
systems, and data science to reshape the "balance of power" in the
ecosystem of computing and networking.
As the first high-quality IEEE workshop in the emergent area of Fog
Networking, this workshop's scope includes:
- Edge data analytics and stream mining
- Edge resource pooling
- Edge caching and distributed data center
- Client-side measurement and crowd-sensing
- Client-side control and configuration
- Security and privacy in Fog
- Fog applications in IoT
- Fog applications in 5G
- Fog applications in home and personal area networking
