Internet of Things Module 2:
IoT Technology and Architecture

This course provides a drill-down into key areas of IoT technology architecture and enabling technologies by breaking down IoT environments into individual building blocks via design patterns and associated implementation mechanisms. Layered architectural models are covered, along with design techniques and feature-sets covering the processing of telemetry data, positioning of control logic, performance optimization, as well as addressing scalability and reliability concerns. 

The following primary topics are covered:
– Components of an IoT Device (including sensor, actuator, modem, control logic, etc.)
– IoT Platforms, Gateways and Publish-Subscribe Systems
– Device Shadows and Device Shadow Registries
– Trusted Platform Module (TPM) and the Truncated Exponential Back-off Algorithm
– Fundamental Functional Distribution Patterns
– Autonomous Controlling Device Model, Intermediary Controlling Model
– Multi-Gateway Intermediary Controlling Model, Recipient Device Controlling Model
– Telemetry Processing Patterns
– Minimalized Data, Canonical Data Format
– Telemetry Modeling, Intermediary Metadata Provisioning
– Information Transduction and Encoding
– Performance Optimization Patterns
– Observe Messaging, Transport Quality Traffic Profile
– Reconnection Request Regulation, Device Workload Regulation
– Security, Reliability and Utility Patterns
– Radio Transport Encryption, Firmware Integrity Attestation
– Message Bookkeeping, Multimode Communication
– Network-Based Positioning and Triangulation

Duration: 1 Day
