Internet of Things for Architects: Architecting IoT solutions by implementing sensors, communication infrastructure, edge computing, analytics, and security

https://www.amazon.com/Internet-Things-Architects-communicat...
Learn to design, implement and secure your IoT infrastructureKey Features
  • Build a complete IoT system that is the best fit for your organization
  • Learn about different concepts, technologies, and tradeoffs in the IoT architectural stack
  • Understand the theory, concepts, and implementation of each element that comprises IoT design—from sensors to the cloud
  • Implement best practices to ensure the reliability, scalability, robust communication systems, security, and data analysis in your IoT infrastructure
Book DescriptionThe Internet of Things (IoT) is the fastest growing technology market. Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. An architectural guide is necessary 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 devices.This book encompasses the entire spectrum of IoT solutions, from sensors to the cloud. We start by examining modern sensor systems and focus on their power and functionality. After that, we dive deep into communication theory, paying close attention to near-range PAN, including the new Bluetooth® 5.0 specification and mesh networks. Then, we explore IP-based communication in LAN and WAN, including 802.11ah, 5G LTE cellular, SigFox, and LoRaWAN. Next, we cover edge routing and gateways and their role in fog computing, as well as the messaging protocols of MQTT and CoAP.With the data now in internet form, you'll get an understanding of cloud and fog architectures, including the OpenFog standards. We wrap up the analytics portion of the book with the application of statistical analysis, complex event processing, and deep learning models. Finally, we conclude by providing a holistic view of the IoT security stack and the anatomical details of IoT exploits while countering them with software defined perimeters and blockchains.What you will learn
  • Understand the role and scope of architecting a successful IoT deployment, from sensors to the cloud
  • Scan the landscape of IoT technologies that span everything from sensors to the cloud and
  • everything in between
  • See the trade-offs in choices of protocols and communications in IoT deployments
  • Build a repertoire of skills and the vernacular necessary to work in the IoT space
  • Broaden your skills in multiple engineering domains necessary for the IoT architect
Who this book is forThis book is for architects, system designers, technologists, and technology managers who want to understand the IoT ecosphere, various technologies, and tradeoffs and develop a 50,000-foot view of IoT architecture. Table of Contents

    Theory and Research in Mass Communication: Contexts and Consequences (Lea's Communication (Hardcover))

    https://www.amazon.com/Theory-Research-Mass-Communication-Co...
    This updated edition presents a civic journalism treatment of the field of mass communication research. The sine qua non of the civic journalism movement seems to center around an implicit assumption that the human mind is an evolved part in the natural world, not a detached spectator as much traditional philosophy assumes. Thus, it has attempted to encourage journalists and members of their audiences to participate actively in civic life. Applying the same idea to mass communication academics, this book focuses on the empirical consequences of their work, especially its possible impact on human life. It argues that researchers need to connect with the broader communities in which they live and considers the impact of media research on society. Features of the second edition include: *detailed update of research evidence concerning the media violence issue; *additional material concerning media ownership structures and their possible relationship to media content and effects; *new material focusing on the impact of tobacco and alcohol advertising; *updated and expanded section concerning the history of media studies; and *an expanded discussion of philosophical issues pertaining to theory construction. This book is intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students studying mass communication theory and related subjects, such as communication theory, media effects, media literacy, and media and society.
