As explained in the first part of Machina Research’s series of three Research Notes on the subject ('Fog Computing in IoT: a New Paradigm for Distributed Intelligence'), fog computing represents a new technology paradigm for distributing intelligence in IoT systems. The most instrumental device class to drive this paradigm shift is what could be termed as the intelligent gateway: an edge device delivers greater computing capabilities than the traditional, communication-centric gateway.

This second part of the Research Note series analyses which IoT end markets stand to gain the most from the rise of fog computing and intelligent gateways.
