International Journal of Cloud Computing (IJCC), Vol. 6, No. 4, 2017

Abstract: The primary objective of this paper is to present a fresh overview of the very recent literature about the integration of mobile internet of things (MIoT) and cloud computing towards scalability, by specifically concentrating on solutions based on the exploitation of edge computing capabilities (fogcomputing) to effectively integrate device localities with the global cloud resources. In addition to surveying the state-of-the-art of fog computing for MIoT and cloud integration, the paper will propose an original architecture and classification of possible solutions in the field, by reporting lessons learned from the few existing experiences and by shedding new light on specific sub-fields of research where advancements are needed to effectively integrate huge numbers of geographically dispersed mobile devices and globally available cloud resources.
