IoT and Edge Computing for Architects - Second Edition

By: Perry Lea

Overview of this book

Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. An architectural guide is needed if you want to traverse the spectrum of technologies needed to build a successful IoT system, whether that's a single device or millions of IoT devices. IoT and Edge Computing for Architects, Second Edition encompasses the entire spectrum of IoT solutions, from IoT sensors to the cloud. It examines modern sensor systems, focusing on their power and functionality. It also looks at communication theory, paying close attention to near-range PAN, including the new Bluetooth® 5.0 specification and mesh networks. Then, the book explores IP-based communication in LAN and WAN, including 802.11ah, 5G LTE cellular, Sigfox, and LoRaWAN. It also explains edge computing, routing and gateways, and their role in fog computing, as well as the messaging protocols of MQTT 5.0 and CoAP. With the data now in internet form, you'll get an understanding of cloud and fog architectures, including the OpenFog standards. The book wraps up the analytics portion with the application of statistical analysis, complex event processing, and deep learning models. The book then concludes by providing a holistic view of IoT security, cryptography, and shell security in addition to software-defined perimeters and blockchains.

Constrained Application Protocol

The Constrained Application Protocol (CoAP) is the product of the IETF (RFC7228). The IETF Constrained RESTful Environments (CoRE) working group created the first draft of the protocol in June 2014 but had worked for several years on its creation. It is specifically intended as a communication protocol for constrained devices. The core protocol is now based on RFC7252. The protocol is unique as it was first tailored for M2M communication between edge nodes. It also supports mapping to HTTP through the use of proxies. This HTTP mapping is the on-board facility to get data across the Internet.

CoAP is excellent at providing a similar and easy structure of resource addressing familiar to anyone with experience using the web but with reduced resources and bandwidth demands.

A study performed by Colitti et al., demonstrated the efficiency of CoAP over standard HTTP (Colitti, Walter & Steenhaut, Kris & De, Niccolò. 2017. Integrating...
