Abstract: While analyzing iot projects it is very expensive to buy a lot of sensors , corresponding processor boards, power supplies etc. Moreover the entire process is to be replicated to cater to large topologies. The whole experiment is to be planned at a large scale before we can actually start to see analytics working. At a smaller scale this can be implemented as a simulation program in linux where the sensor data is created using a random number generator and scaled appropriately for each type of sensor to mimic representative data. This is them encrypted before sending it over the network to the edge nodes. At the server a socket stream now continuously awaits sensor data Here the required sensor data is retrieved and decrypted to give true time series data. This time series is now given to an analytics engine which calculates the trends and cyclicity and is used to train a neural network. The anomalies so found are properly deciphered. The multiplicity of the nodes can be characterized by having several client programs running in separate terminals. A simple client server architecture is thus able to simulate a large iot infrastructure and is able to perform analytics on a scaled model
