The year of 2019 has been considered as the first year for 5G commercial landing, and the IoT (Internet of Things) technology has been developing rapidly accordingly. More and more intelligent terminal devices will enter into different places and corners of the society, including families, offices and manufacturing factories, and will be stably online in long term. Therefore, real-time data generated by these devices will grow exponentially. Such a huge amount of data is required to be able to transmit, process, analyze and generate related insights in a very short time and in more flexible ways, in order to output the optimum solutions for more objective, intelligent and rational conduct and policy guidance, which will bring about important changes in personal life management, business model and social development.
Centralized Cloud Computing Are Now Facing Tough Challenges
In the past, the majority of generated data was transmitted to the cloud through the Internet for being processed, which, as we all know, is called cloud computing. Cloud computing has been developing for more than ten years since when it was put forward, which has greatly improved the efficiency of social economy and enhance the quality of people’s daily life. However, today’s massive real-time data has posed a thorny problem to the traditional centralized cloud computing: due to the large distance between the cloud and the origins which data is generated, or we can say where the device terminals are located, a series of issues such as time delay, network bandwidth pressure, privacy security risks and so on have been highlighted and cannot be solved fundamentally by centralized cloud computing.
Distributed Fog Computing Comes into Being
Meanwhile, intelligent terminals are gradually demonstrating their strong application potential. By the ability to receive and process data generated nearby in real time, data can be processed without transmitting to distant clouds. A regional (network edge) terminal is assembled into a platform architecture to execute “primary processing” and “filtering” of data. Then the data can be sent back to the edge or uploaded to the cloud according to the actual needs and usage purpose. Such computing architecture between the remote cloud and the edge points of data generation is called Fog Computing, which improves the performance by locating the computing resources closer to the required location, thus shortening the distance of data transmission on the network and improve the overall network efficiency and performance.
（Fog Computing Concept）
With the continuous close integration of Internet technology and IoT, all human beings and things will be in the ubiquitous network. In such ubiquitous networking environment, everyone and everything will be able to communicate smoothly at any time and anywhere. All walks of life will also conform to this technological development trend, implement technological iteration and promote technological change in order to better pursue their own development and promote the community.
Since distributed fog computing technology is capable of better meeting the needs of real-time processing of massive data, and shows the advantages of much lower latency, wider distribution, lower bandwidth pressure, more flexible scheduling, etc., fog computing has been considered to have a strong landing prospects, and will be widely used in the fields related to IoT and many other fields in the future.
