Marketing, it's mainly just marketing... There is one possible interpretation that has fog computing being more of a distributed system in that nodes on the edge of the network share information laterally between themselves vs edge computing which does data aggregation and reduction before forwarding on to a central point. ... but it really is just ...

What it looks like they're trying to do is establish semantic definitions for messages and rules that can be interpreted or processed at any layer, and that the layers can be migrated up or down. So yes, a home hub could be a fog node, but only if it supports the fog behaviors and messages. Think of a typical home automation architecture: Remote -<Z-...

I'll make an attempt at answering this, but want to clarify that this is my inference, not an expert's view. A "fog node" is potentially anything between a smart endpoint (for example a security camera with image recognition), and an enhanced router node located potentially at a GSM cell-site. For a node to qualify as a fog node, it needs to perform some ...

I would second that, they are both Embedded Systems / network architectures rather than much else. These solutions have been in use for many, many years in the embedded and distributed systems industries. The new terms of IoT, Edge, Fog, etc all really dress technical architectures for mass market hysteria. The critical thing is to determine if your ...

The Linux Foundation has defined Edge as 20ms or less communication latency. I guess Fog would be anything between that and your formal Cloud architecture.
