About this course

In the Internet of Things, the Things must conform to the Internet, not the other way around. If you’re just dipping your toes into the IoT, this class is for you. Adding network connectivity to an embedded product is complex. This class will explore the foundations of Internet communication. Routers, switches, IP and hardware addressing, DHCP, NAT, TCP and UDP transport layers, ports, sockets, and DNS will be explained. The MQTT eco-system will be described, including the pub/sub model, brokers, topics, and the JSON data structure. Lastly, tools for analyzing these packets and data structures will be demonstrated.  This class is meant for the engineer who has no problem setting up their own home network, but has not necessarily explored the detailed requirements for an IoT device to exchange data with an internet resource.
