Mastering Internet of Things

By: Peter Waher

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. At the end of the book, you will have mastered creating open, interoperable and secure networks of things, protecting the privacy and integrity of your users and their information.

Chapter 8. Interoperability

Up to this point, we have been satisfied with making our devices communicate using IP-based protocols. We've created our own communication interfaces. Doing so might be simple and a quick way to get started, but it has serious disadvantages: nobody else will be able to communicate without great effort, and we will not be able to use standardized software to help us with our tasks.

In this chapter, we will introduce the concept of application-level interoperability, how standardized technologies can help us in our work. You'll be introduced to Constrained RESTful Environments (CoRE), the Light-weight Machine-to-Machine enabler (LWM2M), a standardized object model for the management of devices based on CoAP and CoRE. IPSO Smart Objects, a set of standardized object interfaces for sensors and actuators, will also be presented. Standardized technologies will allow you to utilize existing software to interact and manage your devices, which in turn will allow you to...
