Cisco: FogWorld Congress Highlights Maturing Distributed Cloud Technology


Less than two years after helping to form the OpenFog Consortium, I couldn’t be happier about reaching an important milestone for Fog Computing—the inaugural industry conference dedicated to Fog technologies, Fog World Congress, coming up next week in Santa Clara, California. The OpenFog Consortium and IEEE Communications Society have been working jointly on the first-ever industry conference dedicated to exploring the technologies and opportunities of Fog Computing and Networking. The conference features:

  • 75+ speakers
  • 55 sessions
  • 4 tracks
  • “Fog Tank,” where four venture capitalists will take on five startups to find the most game-changing company

As a Diamond Sponsor, Cisco will be there in force, showcasing our Fog strategy and solutions through multiple speakers, panels, and demos.

Cisco will be represented by several keynote speakers: Senior Vice President and Chief Strategy Officer Hilton Romanski will discuss the important strategic connection between Fog and the Internet of Things (IoT). Distinguished Engineer and OpenFog founder Tao Zhang will open the program with a keynote on “Fogonomics: The Coming Era of Fog Computing.” As a Board member of both the OpenFog Consortium and the IEEE Communications Society, Tao has been deeply involved in developing the foundations of Fog Computing and Networking. In my capacity as Chair of the OpenFog Consortium, I will open the second day, along with Robert Fish, VP of Industries and Standards for the IEEE Communication Society, talking about our path forward for developing Fog standards.
