Internet of Things Definition
“A global network infrastructure, linking physical and virtual objects through the exploitation of data capture and communication capabilities. This infrastructure includes existing and involving Internet and network developments. It will offer specific object-identification, sensor and connection capability as the basis for the development of independent cooperative services and applications. These will be characterized by a high degree of autonomous data capture, event transfer, network connectivity and interoperability.” - The CASAGRAS report 2011
Protocols are a set of predefined rules used by devices in a network to communicate with each other. These protocols are developed by Standards Organizations, e.g. OMA, and/or other groups of interest.
Protocols = Rail Tracks Developer Apps = Locomotive, Passenger & Cargo Wagons
Protocols provide a common “road” to deliver services. While the services are tailored to specific needs. The innovation happens here, at the service level.
IoT Protocol Features
IoT Protocols are Light Weight in terms of:
- Code footprint
- Low power consumption
- Open and suitable to a multi-platform Low storage capability
