Assessment of the Suitability of Fog Computing in the Context of Internet of Things

  title={Assessment of the Suitability of Fog Computing in the Context of Internet of Things},
  author={Subhadeep Sarkar and Subarna Chatterjee and Sudip Misra},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Cloud Computing},
This work performs a rigorous, comparative analysis of the fog computing paradigm and the conventional cloud computing paradigm in the context of the Internet of Things (IoT), by mathematically formulating the parameters and characteristics of fog computing—one of the first attempts of its kind. With the rapid increase in the number of Internet-connected devices, the increased demand of real-time, low-latency services is proving to be challenging for the traditional cloud computing framework…
