IoT Glue: What Keeps Things Connected?
CERT-03
The IoT cannot become pervasive on a single device family, or on a single edge network type. This session brings it all together and explains how IP-based M2M communications capabilities such as CoAP, HTTP, and MQTT allow sets of systems to be aggregated, to interwork, and to federate. These are the tools needed to scale massively, and to build interconnected applications and services; extending from multi-room… to multi-national, and fulfilling the promise of the IoT; “Everything Connected”.
