Cisco: New Fog Standards Initiative Will Accelerate Digital Transformation
To truly be transformative, the Internet of Things (IoT), needs to be able to handle massive amounts of data in near-real time for advanced use cases such as drones, self-driving vehicles, and embedded artificial intelligence (AI) applications. It also needs to be completely interoperable—from end-user devices and sensors all the way to the cloud.
That’s why, when we formed the OpenFog Consortium nearly two years ago, one of our top priorities was to develop a reference architecture that could serve as the foundation for fog computing and networking standards. We delivered that architecture last February. This week, I’m pleased to say, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Standards Association (IEEE-SA) announced it will use the OpenFog Reference Architecture as the basis for its work on fog standards. The IEEE Standard Working Group on Fog Computing and Networking Architecture Framework expects to complete the adoption of the first version of the OpenFog Reference Architecture by April 2018.
