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.

Chapter 13. Using an Internet of Things Service Platform

As we have seen throughout the chapters of this book, developing services for the Internet of Things may often include many repetitive tasks. These relate to the architecture of the application, infrastructure, data persistence, manageability, communication framework, hosting, inter-connectivity, user interfaces, and so on. In practical applications, you also need to consider managing devices. When on a tight schedule or having limited resources, many of these tasks are omitted, or receive little attention, to cut corners.

In this chapter, you will learn how an Internet of things (IoT) service platform can help you with many of the repetitive tasks required to create a successful IoT application. This chapter covers:

  • An introduction to the IoT Gateway project
  • An overview of its architecture
  • An introduction to its hardware abstraction layer
  • Management through its XMPP architecture
  • How to create services
  • How to interface things
  • Using its databases...
