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.

Bluetooth is a low-power wireless connectivity technology used pervasively in technology for cellular phones, sensors, keyboards, and video game systems. The name Bluetooth refers to King Harald Blatand in the region of what is now Norway and Sweden in around 958AD. King Blatand got his name from his liking of blueberries and/or the eating of his frozen enemies. Regardless, Bluetooth is derived from his name because King Blatand brought together warring tribes, and the same could be said for the formation of the initial Bluetooth SIG. Even the Bluetooth logo is a combination of runes from an ancient Germanic alphabet used by the Danes. Today, Bluetooth is prevalent, and this section will focus on the new Bluetooth 5 protocol ratified by the Bluetooth SIG in 2016. Other variants will be called out as well. To learn more about older Bluetooth technologies, refer to the Bluetooth SIG at
