Abstract

The idea of co-operative caching in a cache-enabled wireless network has gained much interest due to its services in terms of short service delay and improved transmission rate at the user end. In this article, we consider a co-operative caching mechanism for a fog-enabled Internet of Things (IoT) network. We propose a delay-minimizing policy for fog nodes (FNs), where the goal is to reduce the service delay for the IoT nodes, also known as terminal nodes (TNs). To this end, a novel smart clustering mechanism is proposed, aiming to efficiently assign FNs to the TNs while improving the network benefit by finding a tradeoff between the delay and the network’s energy consumption. We perform mathematical analysis and extensive simulations to highlight the potential gain and the proposed policy.
