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.

Public, private, and hybrid cloud

Within the cloud environment stand three different models of cloud topologies that are generally used: private cloud, public cloud, and hybrid cloud. Regardless of the model, cloud frameworks should all provide the ability to dynamically scale, develop, and deploy rapidly, and have the appearance of locality regardless of proximity:

Private clouds also imply on-premises managed components. Modern enterprise systems tend to use a hybrid architecture to ensure the safety of mission-critical applications and data on-premises, and use the public cloud for connectivity, deployment ease, and rapid development.

Private cloud

In a private cloud, the infrastructure is provisioned for a single organization or corporation. There is no concept of resource sharing or pooling outside of the owner's own infrastructure. Within the premises, sharing and...
