The chapter summarizes activities of COST IC1304 ACROSS European Project corresponding to traffic management for Cloud Federation (CF). In particular, we provide a survey of CF architectures and standardization activities. We present comprehensive multi-level model for traffic management in CF that consists of five levels: Level 5 - Strategies for building CF, Level 4 - Network for CF, Level 3 - Service specification and provision, Level 2 - Service composition and orchestration, and Level 1 - Task service in cloud resources. For each level we propose specific methods and algorithms. The effectiveness of these solutions were verified by simulation and analytical methods. Finally, we also describe specialized simulator for testing CF solution in IoT environment.
