Denver Fog Forum – June 8, 2017

Thursday, June 8, 2017
1:00 p.m. – 3:55 p.m.
Westin Denver Downtown
1672 Lawrence Street
Denver, CO 80202

Get ready for the fog to roll in to your organization.

Fog computing is rapidly emerging as the necessary architecture in IoT, 5G and other advanced digital scenarios, due to latency, networking and bandwidth challenges in traditional architectural approaches.

Please join us for the first public forum on fog computing in Denver, hosted by the OpenFog Consortium. This free event will help you understand why fog computing is considered to be one of the top technologies to watch in 2017.   You will learn:

  • Why fog computing is the necessary architecture for IoT, 5G and AI
  • How customers are deploying fog computing via real-world use cases
  • Technical advantages and challenges of fog computing
  • The OpenFog Reference Architecture
  • Security challenges in fog computing

The forum will conclude with audience Q&A with members of the OpenFog Consortium, so come with your questions!

Meet Founders, Board Directors and Technical Committee members of the OpenFog Consortium.

Registration is complimentary but seats are limited, so reserve your spot today.  For additional information, please contact us at

About Fog Computing

Fog computing is the necessary architecture for IoT, 5G, AI and other applications which are data dense and require ultra-low latency.  It is a horizontal architecture that provides compute, storage, control, and networking functions closer to the data-producing sources along the cloud-to-thing continuum. Applicable across industry sectors, fog computing is necessary to effectively address issues related to security, cognition, agility, latency and efficiency.

About the OpenFog Consortium

The OpenFog Consortium is a public-private ecosystem formed to accelerate the adoption of fog computing in order to solve the bandwidth, latency and communications challenges associated with IoT.  Our work is centered around creating a framework for efficient and reliable networks and intelligent endpoints combined with identifiable, secure, and privacy-friendly information flows between clouds, endpoints, and services based on open standard technologies.  Formed by ARM, Cisco, Dell, Intel, Microsoft and Princeton University in November 2015, the OpenFog Consortium has a global membership of more than 50 organizations, representing the leading thinkers and pioneers in fog computing technologies and deployments.
