The Fog Networking ConferenceWhile research is being carried out to design technology portfolios that will make 5G a reality, there is no consensus on the technology itself. Industrial and academic focus as rather fallen on the challenges and new usages that need to be addressed in the future generation of 5G wireless networks. Among these, Mobile Edge and Fog Computing permit to initiate and manage applications in a cloud environment by bringing intelligence at the network edge.
Is Fog a smoky concept or a new paradigm? In any case, Fog Networking is a major R&D strand in 5G networking. The aim is to solve one of the main challenge with 5G: reducing latency to 1ms (vs 50sm currently).
Achieving this goal demands a deep change of the Internet architecture. The Cloud cannot physically respond to latency necessity from applications such as IOT or emergency. It therefore comes down to equipment access level.
The second day is dedicated to vertical applications (factory of the future, electrical power grid, etc) and to architectures. Participants will share their vision in a panel entitled «Why do we want Fog? What is it for?»

The European Advanced Networking Test Centre (EANTC) together with Upperside Conferences will organize, as each year, a public Multi-Vendor Interoperability test and showcase during the Congress.
The Interop Showcase
The EANTC team will present results in regular guided tours to conference attendees. The showcase is open for the full four days of the conferences (Tuesday to Friday).
The showcase will explore the areas of Service Provider WAN and Data Center SDN as well as, as every year, co-host the only industry-wide packet clock synchronization interoperability. Initial topics are:
• Segment Routing
• Ethernet VPNs
• SDN Controllers
• Yang Models for Services
• LTE Clock Synchronization Readiness
