  • Prof. Nelson L.S. Da Fonseca - State University of Campinas, SP, Brazil


Cloud-centric architecture  is not suitable for satisfying the demands of many delay-sensitive applications in 5G and IoT.  An emerging alternative paradigm is the fog computing, where the cloud descends to the network edge and diffuses among the client devices in both mobile and wireline networks.  Fog computing provides a hierarchical and distributed system at the edge and has been deployed in different use cases. In this talk, I will cover fundaments of fog computing and its use  in Smart Cities and Industry 4.0.
