With the growing need for smart services and internet of things (IoT) devices in smart cities, the cloud paradigm might not be able to accommodate the increasing data traffic and the various latencyaware applications. Meanwhile, as smart cities grow bigger and wider, finding a communication protocol that fully supports the nature of smart cities application becomes essential, with the need for a secure and privacy protecting paradigm is more than ever. In this paper, we investigate the potential of combining the recently introduced fog computing and loRaWAN communication standard to attain more sustainable smart cities. We present a case study for using the proposed network architecture for smart water distribution networks.
