The Six layers of an IoT Solution 1024 538 Ravensdale Digital

When most people think of the Internet of Things (IoT), they envision a smart device or sensor, but there are six layers to consider if you want to build an IoT solution. Each layer has its own set of requirements and considerations, as well as security implications, to achieve successful business outcomes while maintaining data privacy and compliance. The six layers of an IoT solution include:

  1. Layer 1: IoT Devices
  2. Layer 2: Edge Computing
  3. Layer 3: Connectivity & Data Transport
  4. Layer 4: IoT Platforms
  5. Layer 5: Data Management
  6. IoT Applications

The CompTIA IoT Advisory Council has broken these layers down and provided overarching guidance on IoT security in The Six Layers of an IoT Solution guide to help enterprise CIOs, IT solution providers, and aspiring IT practitioners understand IoT solutions holistically.
