Cisco: Growing Strong at the Intersection of Fog and IoT


Last week 80 people came together in Seattle for the sixth meeting of the OpenFog Consortium. The excitement and engagement at the meeting reflected a market segment that is growing up, and growing strong. Still shy of its second birthday, the Consortium boasts 59 members and counting, including leaders of industry and academia from around the world.

Why is this important?

I believe that fog computing is one of the most important accelerators of the Internet of Things (IoT). Fog pushes computing power and storage from the cloud into devices at the edge of the network, where they can process, analyze, and store data for real-time and near-real-time applications—the very things that drive value in IoT. Fog provides enhanced latency, reliability, security, and bandwidth efficiency compared to cloud-based solutions.  Without fog, we wouldn’t be able to have self-driving cars, autonomous drones, or real-time production control systems.

As fog enables IoT adoption, IoT’s need for fog capabilities is accelerating the development of widespread fog architectures and standards. And that’s where the OpenFog Consortium comes in. The Consortium’s committees and workgroups have been hard at work defining an open, interoperable fog computing architecture to ensure interoperability as fog technology develops.
