About the project

Towards an Open, Secure, Decentralized and Coordinated Fog-to-Cloud Management Ecosystem

With the number of devices exponentially growing globally, new cloud and fog models are expected to emerge, paving the way for shared, collaborative, extensible mobile, volatile and dynamic compute, storage and network infrastructure. When put together, cloud and fog computing create a new stack of resources, which we refer to as Fog-to-Cloud (F2C), creating the need for a new, open and coordinated management ecosystem. The mF2C proposal sets the goal of designing an open, secure, decentralized, multi-stakeholder management framework, including novel programming models, privacy and security, data storage techniques, service creation, brokerage solutions, SLA policies, and resource orchestration methods.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730929

Worldsensing role

Worldsensing’s role in mF2C focuses on providing advanced IoT technology for emergency situation management in smart cities. Main contributions include:

  • Providing input for real life IoT services and device requirements,
  • Supporting the porting and integration process of the individual blocks in a reference architecture and lead the validation and assessment activities to guarantee the quality of the whole system,
  • Exploitation of the project results by adopting the developed technology for the company`s back end servers and fog computing solutions.
