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.

The OpenStack cloud architecture

OpenStack is an open source Apache 2.0 licensed framework used to build cloud platforms. It is primarily an IaaS and has been in the developer community since 2010. The OpenStack Foundation manages the software and has support from more than 500 companies, including Intel, IBM, Red Hat, and Ericsson.

OpenStack started as a joint project between NASA and Rackspace around 2010. The architecture has all the major components of other cloud systems, including compute and load balancing; storage components, including backup and recovery; networking components, dashboards, security and identity, data and analytics packages, deployment tools, monitors and meters, and application services. These are the components that an architect would look for when choosing a cloud service.

Rather than focus on a single commercial cloud architecture, we will examine OpenStack in depth as many of the artifacts of OpenStack are used or analogous to components...
