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.

Preface

Edge computing and the Internet of Things (IoT) has migrated from hype to the mainstream. Organizations and industries require data to be gathered from objects and value and insight to be extracted from the information. Meanwhile, we are moving more processing and capabilities from data centers closer to data generation sources. A well-architected system requires multiple domains of expertise, from sensor physics and energy considerations to cloud-based data analytics strengths. We address the entire topology of IoT and edge computing in this book. Here, you will learn how interconnected each component is as a system. This covers telecommunications and radio signaling, embedded systems, long-range communication, network protocols, edge and cloud frameworks, holistic security, and cloud machine learning.
