Connected devices are the heart of the IoT. Without those devices or the vital connectivity that brings them to life, the IoT simply wouldn’t exist. Industry statistics tell the story: Gartner Research estimates that there are 6.4 billion connected devices in use in 2016 and projects that the number will balloon to 20.8 billion by 2020. The CEO of a major telecom company thinks it’s closer to 50 billion connected devices by 2020. In a new report from O’Reilly Media, you can learn about the requirements needed to connect networked devices – from prototyping to scaling IoT for the enterprise.
You will learn:
• The unique security challenge for connected devices in the IoT
• The difference between local devices, devices on the edge of the IoT, and devices in the cloud
• How to prototype and what is needed to plan for scale
• What to consider when designing the prototype, such as its physical environment
• How to address the key life-cycle activities of a connected device
