E-cast: IoT Device Management – Class 3 of "Device Management 101"

March 23, 2017 embedded e-cast

In our final class, we will look at the “Things” of the IoT – our nodes and devices – and how we can effectively commission, monitor, and detect problems in them throughout their lifecycle. We will look at methods for adding device management capabilities in our devices from the design stage as well as ways to add these capabilities in the legacy devices we looked at in the previous class. One topic we will look at is effective commissioning and decommissioning of devices in the network – how can we add or remove a node from the network without adversely impacting the rest of the network? Another area we will look at is security assurance and testing: how can we be sure of the device security – and how can we test it? And lastly we will look at maintenance. What methods can we use for testing devices or paths within the network and how can we effectively and safely perform system updates? To conclude our class, we will review our checklist and see what other issues we may need to be aware of in our IoT design.
