Overview of this book

The Internet of Things (IoT) is the fastest growing technology market. Industries are embracing IoT technologies to improve operational expenses, product life, and people's well-being. Mastering Internet of Things starts by presenting IoT fundamentals and the smart city. You will learn the important technologies and protocols that are used for the Internet of Things, their features, corresponding security implications, and practical examples on how to use them. This book focuses on creating applications and services for the Internet of Things. Further, you will learn to create applications and services for the Internet of Things. You will be discover various interesting projects and understand how to publish sensor data, control devices, and react to asynchronous events using the XMPP protocol. The book also introduces chat, to interact with your devices. You will learn how to automate your tasks by using Internet of Things Service Platforms as the base for an application. You will understand the subject of privacy, requirements they should be familiar with, and how to avoid violating any of the important new regulations being introduced.

Managing a concentrator

Referencing embedded nodes is only one part of managing a concentrator. While the preceding interfaces might be sufficient for interacting with small devices with a fixed number of embedded nodes, there are many cases where management of embedded devices is required.

The Waher.Networking.XMPP.Concentrator and .UWP NuGet packages define a ConcentratorClient and ConcentratorServer class that will help you with these tasks. They will help with:

  • Management and discovery of data sources
  • Management of nodes in data sources, including browsing, searching, updating, adding, and removing embedded nodes, including large sets of nodes
  • Access management
  • Execution of commands and queries
  • Management of sensor data databases

All concentrator functions are optional, and the concentrator can choose which features to support. This allows the interface to support very simple concentrators (such as PLCs), medium-sized concentrators (such as bridges), and large concentrators (such as backend...
