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.

IP-Based WPAN and WLAN

WPAN networks have adopted protocols that are typically not Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol (TCP/IP), at least from the outset. The protocol stacks for Bluetooth, Zigbee, and Z-Wave have similarities to a true TCP/IP protocol but don't inherently communicate over TCP/IP. There are adaptations of IP on Zigbee (using Zigbee-IP) and IP over Bluetooth (using IPSP to support 6LoWPAN) that do exist. Later in this chapter, we will cover an example of a WPAN using the 802.15.4 protocol with a true IPv6 (Thread) compatible layer capable of joining any IPv6 network.

This chapter will also cover the standards around Wi-FiTM using the IEEE 802.11 protocols. While typically thought of as a wireless LAN (WLAN), 802.11 protocols are pervasive and of use in IoT deployments, especially in smart sensors and gateway hubs. This chapter will provide a formal treatment of the 802.11 Wi-Fi catalog of standards including the new IEEE802.11ac high-speed protocol...
