Abstract

The Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) provides automation solutions for industrial processes through the interconnection of different sensors, actuators and robotic devices to the Internet, enabling for the automation of manufacturing processes through Factory Automation. However, IIoT processes are often critical, and require very high Quality of Service (QoS) to work properly, as well as network scalability and flexibility. Fog computing, a paradigm that brings computation and storage devices closer to the edge of the network to enhance QoS, as well as Software-Defined Networking (SDN), which enables for network scalability and flexibility, can be integrated into IIoT architectures in the form of fog nodes that integrate both, computation resources and SDN capabilities, to meet these needs. However, the QoS of the IIoT system depends on the placement of these fog nodes, creating a need to obtain placements that optimize QoS in order to meet the requirements by minimizing the latency between the fog nodes and the IIoT devices that consume their services. In this paper, this fog node placement problem is formalized and solved by means of Mixed Integer Programming. We also show relevant experimental results of our formulation and analyze its performance
