© 2015 IEEE. Nowadays, smart environments (e.g., smart home, smart city) are built heavily relying on Cloud computing for the coordination and collaboration among smart objects. Cloud is typically centralized but smart objects are ubiquitously distributed, thus, data transmission latency (i.e., end-to-end delay or response time) between Cloud and smart objects is a critical issue especially to the applications that have strict delay requirements. To address the concern, a new Fog computing paradigm is recently proposed by the industry, while the detailed Fog platform is yet to be developed. The key idea is to bring the computing power from the remote Cloud closer to the users, which further ..
