Introduction Internet of Things


Description:

Introduction to Internet of Things (IoT) is a self-paced course, which provides an overview of the concepts and challenges of the transformational digital age when it comes to having people relying on the internet for just about every aspect of their lives, in many cases.

IoT introduces the concept of a network that connects billions of “things” and trillions of gigabytes of data to enhance decision making and determine our online interactions. The course describes how IoE 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. Additionally, the course describes Machine-to-machine (M2M), machine-to-people (M2P), and people-to-people (P2P) connections in an IoE solution.

 

Format: Online, Self-Paced Scheduled:

This course is expected to take 15-20 hours to complete online. Learners view online interactive materials and complete learning activities at a time that is convenient for the learner.

The course offers the following features:

  • Five modules of interactive instructional content
  • Activities, videos, and simulation experiences
  • Assessments include a pre-test, module quizzes, and final exam
  • Recorded videos, presentations, and testimonials from customers and IoE experts
  • Links to articles and websites to help you explore networking and IoE on your own

 Target Audience:

The target audience is anyone who desires a practical and technical introduction to the field of networking. This includes field technicians, headend technicians, network operations center (NOC) staff, network engineers, network administrators, and IT help-desk staff. Students who want to understand what the vales and benefits of the emerging IoT technology and want to leverage their technical and business knowledge into IoT-related functions in the workplace

Course Outline:

Module 1: What Is the Internet of Things? [2hrs]

  • 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
  • Describe the different network components and their functions
















Module 2: Elements of the IoE [4hrs]

  • 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

Module 3: Connecting the Unconnected [4hrs]

  • 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
  • Learn the importance of programming in capturing, sending, analyzing and reacting to the humongous amount of data
  • Learn the importance of prototyping in creating a rudimentary working model of a product or system

Module 4: Transitioning to the IoE [4hrs]

  • 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

Module 5: Bringing It All Together [4hrs]

  • 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
