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.

Cellular connectivity

The most prevalent communication form is cellular radio and specifically cellular data. While mobile communication devices had existed for many years before cellular technology, they had limited coverage, shared frequency space, and were essentially two-way radios. Bell Labs built some trial mobile phone technologies in the 1940s (Mobile Telephone Service) and 1950s (Improved Mobile Telephone Service) but had very limited success. There were also no uniform standards for mobile telephony at the time. It wasn't until the cellular concept was devised by Douglas H. Ring and Rae Young in 1947 and then built by Richard H. Frenkiel, Joel S. Engel, and Philip T. Porter at Bell Labs in the 1960s that larger and robust mobile deployments could be realized. The handoff between cells was conceived and built by Amos E. Joel Jr., also of Bell Labs, which allowed for handoff when moving cellular devices. All these technologies combined to form the first cellular telephone...
