Fog Computing Use Cases

Fog-based use cases are essential to the work of the OpenFog Consortium. They provide invaluable insight into the spectrum of vertical markets and applications served by fog computing and networking, and they also drive requirements for next iterations of the OpenFog architecture and testbeds. Each of the use cases posted here highlights one or more representative fog attributes of SCALE (security, cognition, agility, latency and efficiency).

The architectural use cases provide a technical foundation to plan and design fog implementations as well as extract high-level requirements tailored to specific vertical industries.  We appreciate comments on these use cases, which can be sent to  Thank you for your interest in fog computing and in our work.
