Introduction to IoT

Use computer programming to generate sounds, images, animations and more...

DESCRIPTION

The Cisco Networking Academy® Introduction to IoT course provides an overview of the concepts and challenges of the transformational IoT economy. The course discusses the Internet and its evolution to the interconnection of people, processes, data, and things that forms the Internet of Thing.

TARGET AUDIENCE

Students who want to understand what the values and benefits of the emerging IoT technology
Students who want to leverage their technical and business knowledge into IoT-related functions in the workplace

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

The course introduces the concept of a network foundation connecting billions of things and trillions of gigabytes of data to enhance our decision making and interactions. Course modules describe how IoT drives the convergence between an organization’s operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) systems, and the business processes for evaluating a problem and implementing an IoE solution.
Machine-to-machine (M2M), machine-to-people (M2P), and people-to-people (P2P) connections in an IoE solution are also covered.

Students who complete the Introduction to IoT course will be able to perform the following tasks:

  • What Is the Internet of Things?
  • Elements of the IoE
  • Connecting the Unconnected
  • Transitioning to the IoE
  • Bringing It All Together

The Internet of Thing is also creating demand for a new kind of ICT specialist; individuals with the skillsets to create new products and process the data they collect. A workforce is needed that specializes in both information science and software or computer engineering.

INTERNET OF THING CAREERS

By introducing unprecedented opportunities for organizations, individuals, communities and countries to realize dramatically greater value from networked connections, IoT is creating demand for a broad spectrum of IT jobs. The associated skills needed span multiple disciplines including computer science, computer engineering, and software engineering, and the following domains:

  • Collaboration
  • Data center and virtualization
  • Enterprise networks.

FIRST MODULE

  • What Is the Internet of Things? ASSIGNEMENT | 30 MIN

    This module describes the Internet and its evolution to the Internet of Things.

    Learning Objectives
    Explain the ways the Internet has dramatically changed how we work, live, play, and learn
    Describe how businesses can implement IoT-driven capabilities to create tremendous benefits for their organizations
    Explain how networks form the foundation of the IoT to connect billions of things to provide trillions of gigabytes of data

    Estimated time to complete: 2 hours

SECOND MODULE

  • Elements of the IoE LECTURE | 4 HRS

    This module explains the interconnection of people, process, data, and things that forms the Internet of Everything.

    Learning Objectives
    Explain how things that are computers and non-computers can be connected to a network
    Explain how data is stored and transported across the network
    Explain how “Big Data” is identified, turned into usable information and managed as an asset to make business decisions
    Describe virtualization and cloud computing
    Describe how IoE enablement of accurate and timely information delivery can transform an individual’s and organization’s behaviors
    Explain the role of processes in facilitating interactions between people, things, and data by combining machine-to-machine (M2M), machine-to-people (M2P), and people-to-people (P2P) connections

THIRD MODULE

  • Connecting the Unconnected LECTURE | 4 HRS

    This module explains how smart “things” are able to capture, share, and analyze data. In some cases, “things” can make decisions based on that data, without the need or human intervention.

    Learning Objectives
    Describe Cisco IoT System 6 of pillars in helping organizations and industries adopt IoT solutions
    Configure non-IP and IP devices to communicate in the IoT
    Understand the importance of programming in capturing, sending, analyzing and reacting to the humongous amount of data
    Understand the importance of prototyping in creating a rudimentary working model of a product or system.

     

    Estimated time to complete: 4 hours

FOURTH MODULE

  • Transitioning to the IoE LECTURE | 4 HRS

    This module explains the steps to evaluate and implement an IoE solution. It also describes the security measures needed to secure people, processes, data, and things.

    Learning Objectives
    Describe how the Internet of Everything (IoE) drives the convergence between an organization’s operational technology (OT) and information technology (IT) systems
    Describe the M2M, M2P, and P2P interactions in an IoE solution
    Describe the business processes for evaluating a problem that can be solved with IoE
    Explain the necessary architectural structure to implement an IoE solution
    Explain security concerns that must be considered when implementing IoE solutions

    Estimated time to complete: 4 hours

FIFTH MODULE

  • Bringing It All Together LECTURE | 4 HRS

    This module explains how modeling is critical to identify and implement an IoE Healthcare solution model. It also encourages an entrepreneurial mindset when prototyping a solution for the nascent IoE market.

    Learning Objectives
    Explain how modeling identifies “what if” scenarios that can help a business understand the benefits and impediments to implementing a new solution
    Describe the physical topology and logical topology of an IoE Healthcare solution model
    Describe the M2M, M2P and P2P interactions of an IoE Healthcare solution model
    Explain the concept of prototyping and why this is critical in the nascent IoE market

    Estimated time to complete: 4 hours
