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.

Umbrella organizations

The following organizations govern or steer a myriad of different technical and functional aspects of IoT (as well as other segments). They represent aspects of protocols, testing, operability, technology, communication, and theory.

Industrial Internet Consortium

The details of the organization are as follows:

A nonprofit that was started in 2014 by AT&T, Cisco, GE, IBM, and Intel, the consortium exists to bring together industry partners to assist in the adoption and development of the industrial IoT. The group is not a standards body but instead drives reference architectures and testbeds for manufacturing, health, transportation, smart cities, and the energy sector. There are currently 19 working groups that span areas such as connectivity, safety, energy, smart factories, and healthcare.

In 2019, the original OpenFog organization merged...
