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.

WAN consortia

These organizations cover the various long-range (LPWAN) communication and protocols. Some require membership for usage rights, while others are open protocols.

Weightless SIG

The details of the organization are as follows:

The nonprofit Weightless SIG was formed to sponsor and support the various Weightless LPWAN protocols. There are three standards supported by the SIG: Weightless-N for low-cost and long battery life, Weightless-P for two-way communication with a full set of features, and Weightless-W, which includes an extensive set of features and capabilities.

The intention is to set a standard for use cases such as smart meters, vehicle tracking, and even rural broadband. Weightless focuses predominantly on usage in medical and industrial environments. While the standard is open, there is a required qualification process. Members are entitled...
