In this module we will take a look at what a platform is and the leading suppliers of platforms. I'll give you a quick look at an example building automation deployment and how a platform forms the "glue" that ties the entire system together. We will also take a look at the software and services market.

In this module we will look at the top 5 application areas and considerations involved in selecting a real-time operating system for an IIoT node (think: a single board computer attached to a manufacturing machine like a lathe).

What's included

6 videos1 quiz

In this module we look at networking concepts and two important developments: Network Functions Virtualization and Software Defined Networks. We then move on to take a quick survey of long-range and short-range wireless protocols.

This is probably the most important module in the entire specialization. With billions of devices connected to the internet, security is of paramount importance. I will share with you the bulk of my experience in developing security solutions for end-node type devices. For me the products were hard drives and solid state drives. However, the principles that "work" for storage devices also apply to any IIoT device. I have a colleague guest speaker (Don Matthews) come in to talk to you about his experience with security which he has been doing for 25+ years.
