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.

IoT data analytics and machine learning comparison and assessment

Machine learning algorithms have their place in IoT. The typical case is when there is a plethora of streaming data that needs to produce some meaningful conclusion. A small collection of sensors may only need a simple rules engine on the edge in a latency-sensitive application. Others may stream data to a cloud service and apply rules there for systems with less-aggressive latency demands.

When large amounts of data, unstructured data, and real-time analytics come into play, we need to consider the use of machine learning to solve some of the hardest problems.

In this section, we detail some tips and reminders in deploying machine learning analytics, and what use cases may warrant such tools.

Training phase:

  • For a random forest, use bagging techniques to create ensembles.
  • When using a random forest, ensure you maximize the number of decision trees.
  • Watch overfitting. Overfitting...
