5G services including the Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence and Virtual/Augmented Reality are driving the need for extremely fast and fine grained service provisioning.
To meet these needs, it is critical to enable efficient and elastic computation and networking fabrics, that can be rapidly reconfigured to meet the computation and communication tasks at hand.
Cloud Computing enables flexible provisioning of resources; however, it lacks the distribution of said resources near the end-user. On the other hand, Content Distribution Networks (CDN) brings resources to the edge, but they lack the ability to offer elastic provisioning. Fog Computing emerged as an intertwine between Cloud Computing and Content Distribution Networks (CDN) to meet the 5G requirements; enabling elastic provisioning of heterogenous and distributed resources at the true edge, next to the end-user.
This seminar will introduce the principles of Fog Computing, outlining the inherited characteristics from CDNs and highlighting the architectural challenges caused by the underlying network protocols. A novel research work will then be presented to address these limitations; thus allowing a better support (and faster adoption) of Fog Computing.
Dr Mays AL-Naday is a lecturer in the School of Computer Science and Electronic Engineering at the University of Essex. Her research focuses on future network architectures, including Information Centric Networking, IoT communications, Cloud and Fog computing, next generation Content Delivery Networks and security and Quality of Service in 5G/G+ architectures. Dr. AL-Naday has worked on a number of EU research projects including PURSUIT FP7 and POINT H2020 and has published research papers in prestigious journals and conferences. Recently, she has been contributing to the EU project SerIoT H2020, investigating communication models to enable secure delivery of IoT services. You'll find a full list of her publications here.
