15 Hours of Expert Video Instruction


Overview


By 2020, more than 50 billion “Internet of Things” (IoT) devices will be connected to the Internet. Those connections are already enabling radically new business models, capabilities, and applications, making IoT knowledge indispensable for executives and technologists alike. The IoT Fundamentals LiveLessons video training course offers 10 hours of expert instruction on all the essentials–from sensors and connectivity to data analytics and key industry applications.


Leading Cisco IoT experts Robert Barton and Jerome Henry illuminate core IoT technologies, components, and the building blocks of IoT solutions. They explore IoT network architecture and security considerations, show how to leverage the power of immense IoT data flows, and introduce important IoT applications in several key vertical markets.


Barton and Henry’s 19 well-organized lessons teach through real examples, easy-to-follow animations, and detailed audio explanations. Whatever your role in planning for, using, or building IoT technologies, IoT Fundamentals LiveLessons will help you start fast–and succeed.
