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.

Edge purpose and definition

While computing platforms running outside of IT-managed corporate environments and data centers are not new, edge systems today are extensions of general IT-managed components as though they were within the control and security of a corporate data center. Edge systems are essentially remote computing systems and borrow elements from established engineering domains of embedded systems, cloud computing, computer security, and telecommunications.

One of the earliest forms of remote managed computing existed long before cloud systems and general computing. In the 1930s and 1940s, energy generation was rapidly expanding across the United States as hydro projects and the electric grid were forming. To manage the wide expanse of electric switching stations, a system of remote control was established using pilot wires. We can think of pilot wires as being sideband control signals outside of the high-power lines and attached to an emergency...
