Smart community is the extended concept of the smart grid. Many services, including, but not limited to infrastructure services are deployed in the smart community. Some of the services in the smart community are time critical and require low latency between requests and responses. However, commonlyused cloud computing architecture is not designed with an emphasis on the latency. Therefore, the network architecture for low latency required services are necessary. This paper proposes a serviceproviding network for smart communities. In the proposed network, service-oriented router is utilized to provide the service in intermediate nodes between a cloud server and an end node. By responding to therequest at the intermediate node instead of the cloud where is close to the end devices, the latency is reduced. To demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed network, a simulation of the proposed network with two time-critical services were carried out in the network simulator ns-3. The ancillary service and intersection accident avoidance service are chosen to be considered in the simulation since they are attention-grabbing time-critical services for the smart community. The reduction of both latency and variation of the latency in both services was observed in the simulation. For the ancillary service, the proposed method has reduced the average latency to 10.85 ms that is low enough to provide stable service. The result shows the feasibility of application task allocation between intermediate SoR nodes based on a latency requirement in the smart community.
