Fog Computing Moves Toward Interoperability Standards: Page 2 of 2

Reference architecture aims to define standard communications between the cloud and IoT devices, 5G technology, and emerging applications areas such as artificial intelligence.

for more effective cloud-to-thing network solutions.

Looking forward, the goal of the OpenFog Consortium is to publish additional details and guidance on this architecture, specify APIs for key interfaces, and work with standards organizations such as IEEE on recommended standards. According to the group, the OpenFog technical community is working on a suite of follow-on specifications, development of testbeds and address new use cases to enable component-level interoperability. The end goal is that, eventually, this will lead to certification of industry elements and systems, based on compliance to the OpenFog RA.
