In order to overcome the scalability problem of the traditional Internet of Things (IoT), an approach to Mobile Edge Computing (MEC) for the IoT architecture (EdgeIoT) has been proposed. Providing a reliable transmission environment for an application built on EdgeIoT is a very important issue. Therefore, in this paper, the consensus problem is revised to design a reliable transmission network of EdgeIoT. The new proposed protocol can make all fault-free nodes reach consensus and tolerate the maximal number of allowable faulty components in the EdgeIoT.
