Network is the Foundation for Devices and Operations in IoT
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly expanding concept that reflects a tendency of the world to become “smarter” with automation of almost every sphere of our life from banking, retail, and cars, to industry. Thus, networks are becoming the foundation for devices and operations there, and require optimization for itself and its structure, with the introduction of powerful gateways, NFVs, access points, and much more.
Communicating systems must transform into fully communicating networks where all components interact with each other, and with the cloud or external systems. With the Internet of Things, devices can be connected to the Internet, sense, gather, receive, and send data; communicate with each other and applications via IP technologies, platforms, and connectivity solutions.
In regard to network support, VyOS offers standard network services such as DHCP server and relay, DNS forwarding, and Web Proxy. QoS and policy-based routing allow ensuring optimal handling of the traffic flows. VyOS supports a stateful firewall for both IPv4 and IPv6 including zone-based firewalls, as well as multiple types of NAT (one to one, one to many, many to many).
Privacy and Security
Enterprise grasped mobility and always-on connectivity for workers as it becomes more sophisticated to diversify between company-owned and private devices located and used between workplaces and homes. Security experts declared that rapid growth in connected devices posed a security threat to companies’ security posture.
As the number of IoT devices grows, it’s important to understand the potential security issues around these devices and to make sure those systems can be secured. This includes making sure that data is encrypted, and that the correct access-control methods and even VPN tunneling are utilized.
VyOS is especially suited for the VPN gateway role by supporting of multiple protocols: IPsec (IKEv1 and IKEv2); OpenVPN in client-server and site to site mode; Wireguard and tunneling protocols (IPIP, GRE, L2TPv3 and VXLAN). DMVPN is probably the only open-source solution amongst others that is available for easy deployment and exceptionally provided by VyOS.
An Edge Gateway is a virtual router for organization VDC (Virtual Data Centers) networks. You can configure it to provide network services such as DHCP, firewall, NAT, static routing, VPN, and load balancing.
The Edge Gateway includes a wide variety of wired and wireless connections, including serial connections. The I/O on the intelligent device makes it easy to connect your legacy industrial systems and your new mesh networks. The Gateway uses Wi-Fi, WWAN, and Ethernet to connect and communicate.
The growth in IoT data is explosive, impressive, and unsustainable under current architectural approaches. Many IoT deployments face challenges related to latency, network bandwidth, reliability, and security; which cannot be addressed in cloud-only models.
VyOS opens a lot of opportunities for IoT network - traffic control, devices protection, encrypted connections over public networks, easy configuration with the same functionality on all types of devices. Likewise, maintenance will be easier due to image-based distribution, unified CLI, and support from the first hand.
