Many people chatting about everything learning

Caro(a) Colega,

a semana que vem está um pouco fraca na programação de treinamentos, mas tem o curso sobre o protocolo Thread para a Intenet das Coisas. Aproveite!

4 a 8/04/2016 – Curso: Hands-On Introduction to the Thread IoT Protocol

A major Internet of Things market is home automation. It is also one of the most crowded, already seeing many suitors vying to be “the standard” for low-power mesh networking that will be interoperable with the rest of the IoT. Among players like ZigBee and Z-Wave, we have the emerging newcomer Thread. Thread is a mesh networking protocol that operates on the same baseband as ZigBee (the IEEE 802.15.4 PHY and MAC layers) and includes 6LowPAN as its network layers along with a simpler mesh but higher encryption than the corresponding ZigBee RF4CE and HA profiles. Backed by such notables as Google and Nest, Thread promises the resilience of ZigBee but at a smaller stack size and lower power requirements. In this course, taught by Charles Lord, you will learn the basics of the Thread protocol, how it is different from the other protocols, and how you can implement it in your future IoT designs.

  • April 4 – Day 1: Review of Home Automation Protocols
    In this leadoff class, we will review history of home automation (HA) protocols, starting with the old standby X-10 protocol and comparing it with the current competing protocols, including ZigBee, RF4CE, Z-Wave, and others. We will compare the strengths and weaknesses of each and examine where Thread stands among these protocols.
  • April 5 – Day 2: Looking at the Thread Protocol, in Depth
    We will continue to examine the Tread protocol in depth, including the stack structure, the underlying standards and how they interoperate, and the design principles. We will compare the underlying IEEE 802.15.4 PHY and MAC structure with Bluetooth 4.x and IEEE 802.11 (WiFi).
  • April 6 – Day 3: Sizing Up The Thread Stack
    The Thread stack consists of many modules including IEEE 802.15.4, 6LowPAN, UDP, Security, Mesh, and the actual application and its protocols. In this class, we will look at the structure of the actual code for the stack and how we will be using it for our hands-on testing in the final two classes.
  • April 7 – Day 4: Testing the NXP Boards
    In this penultimate class, we will load the stack and sample setup applications on our test boards for testing and verification of basic operation. We will test the basic setup of the network, the commissioning of a node, and data transfer.
  • April 8 – Day 5: Advanced Board Work
    Now that our code is verified, we will look at more advanced concepts with the boards including monitoring (‘sniffing’) traffic and integrating security. We will then look at changes of topography and the dynamic capabilities of the network to reconfigure and heal itself. We will conclude the class with a look at future developments and capabilities of the Thread protocol.
