Fog computing is a system-level horizontal architecture that distributes resources and services of computing, storage, control and networking anywhere along the continuum from Cloud to Things. By extending the cloud to be closer to the things that produce and act on IoT data, fog enables latency sensitive computing to be performed in proximity to the sensors, resulting in more efficient network bandwidth and more functional and efficient IoT solutions. Fog computing also offers greater business agility through deeper and faster insights, increased security and lower operating expenses.

Hence, introducing and integrating patent from academic institutions within limited budget are, otherwise the cost-effective solution. Based on the belief of sustainable development and international competitiveness enhancement for Taiwan local industries , IAPS actively negotiated with National Science Council, Ministry of Economic Affair, and Ministry of Education, and eventually gained recognition from these relevant ministries enabling IAPS to be the only incubation-accelerating center where are capable of patent transactions with industries through our IP studio without approval of National Science Council.”
