Fog Computing?
Why not move straight to smoke-and-mirrors computing?

We need more technical precision, not Cisco muddying the waters with annoying jargon.

Don't we need an edge protocol to do that?
Fog Computing to me sounds a lot like the AllSeen Alliance's AllJoyn protocol, where devices discover each other on a BlueTooth network and discover each other's capabilities.

Re: Fog Computing?
@Thomas Claburn,

As an old IT manager once told me, that's called 'job security'. Coming from a behemoth like Cisco, I guess it's industry security.

Re: Fog Computing?
This is an interesting article. I prefer the concept on 3-D displays. This will have a huge value addition for the industries mechanical design, engineering, advertising. It will help people to understand the real feeling of it.

Re: Fog Computing?
"Biometric authentication methods" This is a good idea. It will help to have more secure environment.

Biometrics seems to make the most sense to me...
Still seems like there are a lot of barriers, but man how I would love a world without a bloated password safe...

Re: Fog Computing?
Really? Sounds like a method for adding complexity for complexity's sake. Or, just another marketing term like "cloud" computing.

Still waiting for the "transformational paradigm shifters" to come out.

Re: Biometrics seems to make the most sense to me...
I don't understand why Biometrics gets such a bad rap. When I read about how a certain type of biometric technology gets defeated and then I read the process that it took to defeat the technology, it really makes me wonder. Does this really mean it is so insecure? The amount of effort that has to take place is onerous in a lot of situations and I can't see somebody having that kind of time or access to pull it off outside of a lab environment. For highly secure locations, I can understand having an extremely minimal attack footprint but for the vast majority of us who want to eliminate passwords "good enough" is, well, good enough.

Would I ever rely on biometrics alone? That all depends on what I am trying to secure. Again, it is all about the application. The fingerprint sensor on my iPhone works just fine for unlocking it but I haven't saved my CC information in my phone.

Re: Fog Computing?
@Thomas - I think that the term Fog Computing is actually a good one. If you understand the concept of cloud computing, fog computing is nothing more than taking the cloud computing concept and pushing it down to the edge where it surrounds us.  Communications and computing will happen closer to the edge device as opposed to inside a data center way up in the clouds.

Sounds like P2P network to me
