IoT Agent for the Ultralight 2.0 protocol
This Internet of Things Agent is a bridge that can be used to communicate devices using the Ultralight 2.0 protocol and NGSI Context Brokers (like Orion). Ultralight 2.0 is a lightweight text based protocol aimed to constrained devices and communications where the bandwidth and device memory may be limited resources. This IoT Agent will provide different transport protocol bindings for the same protocol: HTTP, MQTT...
As is the case in any IoT Agent, this one follows the interaction model defined in the Node.js IoT Agent Library, that is used for the implementation of the APIs found on the IoT Agent's North Port. Information about the architecture of the IoT Agent can be found on that global repository. This documentation will only address those features and characteristics that are particular to the Ultralight 2.0 IoT Agent.
Additional information about operating the component can be found in the Operations: logs and alarms document.
