DOCUMENTATION 》 TOFFEE Data-Center optimized Internet of Things (IoT) Platform

The Internet of Things (IoT) is revolutionizing the world in more ways than most people realize. Market research shows that, the global market for IoT in 2020 is going to be worth $500 billion in terms of sales. Hardware will account for 70% of sales - devices ranging from smart homes to connected cars and personal wearable technology. This platform needs back-end infrastructure, hardware, software and analytics required to turn the copious amounts of data generated by IoT hardware (sensors, etc) into usable information and in turn may feed AI.

When the personal computer (PC) revolution started during the 1970s and 1980s, it was mostly limited to developed countries such as US, UK and so on initially. Only in the much later stages, when prices of computers dropped significantly, did this revolution go global and penetrated developing countries. Similar trend can be observed in dot-com boom as well. But unlike previous tech revolutions, IoT is a global revolution from Day One.

The Real Challenge!
The data monitored across these IoT hardware sources can be fed into central data-center upon which big data analytics can be performed in real-time. But the challenge is often the data where it is being produced (data source) is situated at offshore remote sites (IoT hardware sensors). And this is the real challenge.

Big Data Analytics - data source vs data-center connectivity - the real challenge

Addressing the same via TOFFEE DataCenter platform:
This data produced this way is quite unique and discrete unlike a traditional TCP session based data (such as user browsing data). TOFFEE is specifically architected keeping this aspect in mind so that it can optimize wide variety of use-cases unlike a simple traditional outdated WAN Optimization approach.

Replacing in Lab Intel Core i7 5820K Desktop PC with Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
As a research experiment I replaced my Intel Core i7 5820K desktop PC with my Intel Celeron 1037U Mini-PC as my everyday desktop system. This is an attempt to reduce my overall monthly power consumption. As well an attempt to do feasibility tests and research to know how far Mini PC will dominate the market in future and to study the real potential of Mini PCs.

Building my own CDN - Minify Script files - Update: 23-July-2016 ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
One of the suggestions Google PageSpeed Insights tool suggested for The TOFFEE Project website is to minify the css and java script files. Minify Script files: When you read online about minification of your web script files, often they highlight file size savings and thus resulting faster download time and better website performance.

First TOFFEE-Mocha Code Release ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
TOFFEE-Mocha is my dream project which I thought working on it since several years. I want to make a WAN emulation software which is straight forward and simple to use. I used tc scripts along with iptables for testing my TOFFEE (and TrafficSqueezer before TOFFEE) and I am not quite satisfied with the same. As one can understand these scripts are not meant for WAN emulation.

Off-Grid Solar Power System for Raspberry Pi ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
When you choose to use your Raspberry Pi device as your IoT based remote weather station or if you are building Linux kernel (like kernel compilation) within the same, you need a good uninterrupted power source (UPS). But if you are using it on site or in some research camping location you can choose to power your Raspberry Pi device with your custom off-grid solar power source.

Recording Lab Monthly power-consumption readings for Research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Here is my home lab monthly power-consumption readings for research. This will help to measure and monitor the overall power usage and assess the power requirements. This will help me in future purchases such as UPS, battery upgrades and so on. And as well remove replace old obsolete hardware with new less power-consuming devices.

Raspberry Pi as a Networking Device ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
Raspberry Pi is often used as a single board computer for applications such as IoT, hobby projects, DIY, education aid, research and prototyping device. But apart from these applications Raspberry Pi can be used for real-world applications such as in making a full-fledged networking devices. Raspberry Pi is a single board ARM based hardware which is why it is also classified as ARM based SoC. Since it is ARM based it is highly efficient, tiny form-factor and lower in power consumption with moderate computational power. This will allow it to work several hours on emergency battery backup power supply such as low-cost domestic UPS and or some renewable energy source, which is a prerequisite for a typical networking device.

My sample Wireshark packet capture files for research ↗
Saturday' 13-Mar-2021
I have a huge repository (or collection) of sample Wireshark packet capture files for reference. I use them extensively for research and development of TOFFEE as well to understand various protocol PDUs and protocol standards. I personally collected various test captures via Wireshark during my test and experimental research setup during the course of TOFFEE development. Say if you are a student and learning Networking and or say VoIP data and VoIP packets, you can analyse my VoIP sample Wireshark captures. Or in other case assume you are doing some quick research (or development) and want to refer few handful of VoIP packets then you can download and analyse my sample packet capture files.
