About This Book

Learn to design, implement, and secure your IoT infrastructure. Revised and expanded for edge computing.

Key Features

  • Build a complete IoT system that's the best fit for your organization
  • Learn about different concepts, tech, and trade-offs in the IoT architectural stack
  • Understand the theory and implementation of each element that comprises IoT design

Book Description

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.

What you will learn

  • Understand the role and scope of architecting a successful IoT deployment
  • Scan the landscape of IoT technologies, from sensors to the cloud and more
  • See the trade-offs in choices of protocols and communications in IoT deployments
  • Become familiar with the terminology needed to work in the IoT space
  • Broaden your skills in the multiple engineering domains necessary for the IoT architect
  • Implement best practices to ensure reliability, scalability, and security in your IoT infrastructure

Who this book is for

This book is for architects, system designers, technologists, and technology managers who want to understand the IoT ecosphere, technologies, and trade-offs, and develop a 50, 000-foot view of IoT architecture. An understanding of the architectural side of IoT is necessary.
