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.

Consortiums and Communities

Industrial consortia exist for several reasons and are essential for the promotion, governance, and construction of standards. The IoT industry is similar to other technologies and has its fair share of proprietary and open standards. This chapter covers the various consortia across PANs, protocols, WANs, and fog and edge computing, as well as various umbrella consortia. A detailed and categorical description of each alliance will be detailed to help you decide which, if any, organization(s) is worth the time and investment to associate with. It should be noted that an organization doesn't need any involvement with an industrial alliance; many great products and businesses have been built without reliance on a consortium. However, some organizations will require corporate membership for logo usage or even the ability to productize certain standards.

A growing market segment like IoT will spawn alliances early on in its hype cycle...
