COLOME PEREZ, Alejandro Luar; ANIAS CALDERON, Caridad  y  DELGADO FERNANDEZ, Tatiana. Procedure for the implementation of Fog Computing in Smart Cities. EAC [online]. 2021, vol.42, n.1, pp.45-57.  Epub 17-Mayo-2021. ISSN 1815-5928.

With the development of the Internet of Things, the number of devices connected to the Internet grows exponentially, and this brings with it a huge increase in the amount of data to be processed in the cloud, increasing traffic, to the detriment of the quality of service. This, together with the low latency and mobility requirements of more than a few applications associated with the Web, has led to a rethinking of the cloud computing paradigm, with decentralized variants appearing that are made closer to the network devices. Fog computing emerges as a new paradigm to solve the problems raised, extending the traditional architecture of cloud computing to the edge of the network. Despite the boom that fog computing has been gaining, there are challenges concerning its implementation in real scenarios, such as smart cities, where the heterogeneity and mobility of devices, as well as the scalability and interoperability required, are aspects that must be considered. The main objective of this paper is the presentation of a guide that guides how to implement this technology in smart cities. The proposed procedure is partially validated for a garbage collection use case in Old Havana, within the framework of a project of the National Program of Science, Technology and Innovation of Informatization.
