Frost & Sullivan - The Fog Rolls In-Network Architectures for IoT and Edge Computing

Frost & Sullivan explain the evolution of Fog Computing and examine the role of networks in the Internet of Things (IoT) as well as other computing use cases. The paper also describes how the Equinix paradigm of Interconnection Oriented Architecture™ (IOA™) enables an enterprise to create a secure, flexible and cost-effective IT environment that supports the high performance needs of a global workforce.


IOA benefits organizations when:

  • Data sources are geographically dense
  • Data volumes exceed available network bandwidth
  • Network access is unreliable
  • Local actions are time-sensitive

Like a ‘service oriented architecture’, IOA breaks free of centralized, one-size-fits-all IT delivery and instead offers a framework for building a flexible, fully meshed hybrid environment in which people, locations, clouds and data can be connected securely, efficiently and cost-effectively.
