Course Description

Developing Solutions Using Cisco IoT and Edge Platforms (DEVIOT)

The Developing Solutions Using Cisco IoT and Edge Platforms (DEVIOT) v1.0 course prepares you to develop Internet of Things (IoT) applications for Cisco IoT edge compute and network architecture.

Through a combination of lessons and hands-on experience, in Developing Solutions Using Cisco IoT and Edge Platforms (DEVIOT) you will learn to implement and deploy Cisco IOx applications using Cisco Field Network Director and Cisco Kinetic. This course covers designing, deploying, and troubleshooting edge applications, and understanding the use of management tools, so you can control your industrial network and connected devices at scale.

This course will prepare you for the 300-915 Developing Solutions Using Cisco IoT and Edge Platforms (DEVIOT) exam. The 300-915 DEVIOT exam certifies your knowledge and skills related to IoT application development as it pertains to Cisco IoT edge compute and network architecture, including Cisco IOx and Cisco Edge and Fog Processing Module (EFM), IoT Data Visualization, and security methods.  After you pass 300-915 DEVIOT, you earn the Cisco Certified DevNet Specialist - IoT certification, and you satisfy the concentration exam requirement for the Cisco Certified DevNet Professional certification.

Learning Objectives

This course will help you:

  • Use network programmability and automation to streamline applications to reduce data size and complexity and strengthen security protocols
  • Gain hands-on experience in maximizing MQ Telemetry Transport (MQTT) protocol for lower power usage, faster data transmission, and more agility in device usage
  • Prepare for the 300-915 DEVIOT exam

After taking this course you should be able to:

  • Explain the fundamentals of Cisco IoT and list common devices involved
  • List the common protocols, standards, and data flows of IoT
  • Explain the Cisco IoT, common needs, and the corresponding solutions
  • Explain how programmability can be used to automate and make operations, deployment, and support of Cisco IoT more effective
  • Describe common Cisco IoT applications and how they apply to Cisco IoT use cases
  • Explain the functions and use cases for Cisco security applications and Cisco IoT
