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.

Industrial and Commercial IoT and Edge

It is also worth noting some of the top companies building systems and services for IoT and edge computing. This is based on recent headlines, employees, revenues, product offerings, market capitalization, product offerings, product reliability, and standards participation. The following sections include devices and services that I have successfully used and deployed in commercial projects.

While hobbyist technologies such as Arduino and Raspberry Pi devices certainly have their place in IoT and edge computing, they are traditionally used in proof-of-concept or academic exercises. This book caters more to commercial and industrial mass scale IoT and edge computing solutions that require hardened field devices and scalable technologies for worldwide mass production and deployment.
