Fog Computing as a Support for 5G Network

Stojan Kitanov and Toni Janevski

Abstract: 5G will enable new future Internet of Services (IoSs) paradigms such as Anything as a Service (AaaS), where devices, terminals, machines, also smart things and robots will become innovative tools that will produce and will use applications, services and data. However, 5G will have to support huge mobile traffic volumes, and will also have to deal with the rapid increase of new and complex applications and services On the other hand, Fog Computing, which extends Cloud Computing to the edge of the network, with its service orchestration mechanisms offers virtually unlimited dynamic resources for computation, storage and service provision, that will overcome the constraints of smart mobile devices. 5G in the fog computing environment will create opportunities for companies to deploy many new real-time services that cannot be delivered over current mobile and wireless networks. This paper evaluates Fog Computing as a support mechanism for 5G Network in terms of latency, throughput, and energy efficiency.
