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.

Non-IP Based WPAN

Sensors, and other things connected to the Internet, need a method of transmitting and receiving information. This is the topic of personal area networks (PANs) and near-range communication. In an IoT ecosphere, communication to a sensor or actuator can be a copper wire or a wireless personal area network (WPAN). In this chapter, we concentrate on the WPAN as that is the prevalent method for industrial, commercial, and consumer connections to the things of the Internet. Wire-based connectivity is still used, but primarily in legacy industries and areas that are not radio-frequency friendly. There is a wide variety of different communication channels between the endpoint and the Internet; some may be built on a traditional IP stack (6LoWPAN) and others use non-IP (Internet protocol) communication to maximize energy savings (BLE).

We separate IP and non-IP because IP-based communication systems need further details of the resources and requirements for a full...
