CCL28

A gene on chromosome 5p12 that encodes a CC-type cytokine, which is characterised by two adjacent cysteines and, as with all cytokines, is involved in immunoregulatory and inflammatory processes. CCL28 binds CCR3 and CCR10, and is chemotactic for resting CD4 or CD8 T cells and eosinophils; it may play a role in the physiology of extracutaneous epithelia, including mucosal tissues.

Fog computing not only bolsters security and reduces points of failure, but it also bridges the IT/OT divide while breaking the "logjam of PLC purgatory," explains David King, CEO of FogHorn Systems, which bills its platform as industrial-grade analytics designed specifically for resource-constrained edge devices like PLCs, gateways and industrial PCs.
In recent years, several works in deployment and (re)configuration of the components in Fog computing have been introduced in the literature.
The tourists of modern world of technology can travel back in time by exploiting some characteristics of fog computing and IoT technology.

The reference architecture provided a solid, high-level foundation for the development of fog computing standards, said John Zao, Chair, IEEE Standards Working Group on Fog Computing & Networking Architecture Framework, which was sponsored by the IEEE Communications Society's Edge, Fog, and Cloud Communications Standards Committee.
In this paper, we strive to improve current healthcare systems by implementing a context-sensitive fog computing environment.
For example, on the statistics flat surface fog computing enables computing services to occupy at the edge of the network as opposed to servers in a datacenter.
In this case, a Fog computing network (FCN) for scalable IoT datacenter is proposed.
The main contributions of this article are as follows: (1) we present an Internet of Things (IoT) generic framework for HCS for the elderly; (2) we provide a data management model for efficient data flow in IoT based HCS; and (3) we examine a case study for fog computing within the IoT framework using a fuzzy logic approach.
Recently, the vast promotion in the field of information and communication technology (ICT) such as grid and fog computing has increased the inclination of having secret data sharing over the existing non-secure communication networks.
The marketing people want to call this "fog computing," which makes me a little sad inside, but this theory of infrastructure architecture has long been part of the largest tech companies of our day and is starting to make more and more sense for smaller companies dependent on customers that use a mixture of on-premises technology and cloud services.
