Abstract

Billions of devises are expected to be connected to the Internet of Things network in the near future, therefore, a considerable amount of data will be generated, and gathered every second. The current network paradigm, which relies on centralised data-centres (a.k.a. Cloud computing), becomes impractical solution for IoT data due to the long distance between the data source and designated data-center. In other words, the amount of time taken by data to travel to a data-centre makes the importance of the data vanished. Therefore, the network topology have been evolved to permit data processing at the edge of the network, introducing what so-called 'Fog computing'. The later will obviously lead to improvements in quality of service via efficient and quick responding to sensors requests. In this paper, we are proposing a fog computing architecture and framework to enhance QoS via request offloading method. The proposed method employ a collaboration strategy among fog nodes in order to permit data processing in a shared mode, hence satisfies QoS and serves largest number of IoT requests. The proposed framework could have the potential in achieving sustainable network paradigm and highlights significant benefits of fog computing into the computing ecosystem.
