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.

Software-defined networking

Software-defined networking (SDN) is a method of decoupling the software and algorithms that define the networking control plane from the underlying hardware that manages the forwarding plane.

Additionally, network function virtualization (NFV) is defined as providing network functions that run on vendor-agnostic hardware. NFV describes virtualizing network features typically found in layers four through seven of the stack. These two paradigms provide the industry methods to build, scale, and deploy significantly complex network architecture in a very flexible manner. Preceding all, this greatly reduces enterprise cost in network infrastructure since most of the services can run in the cloud.

Why is this important for devices at the edge and where does it fit in with the IoT? We have spent a good deal of this book detailing data movement from a sensor to a cloud and yet have taken for granted how the overall inter-networking infrastructure...
